Arai Corsair V Helmet

The Arai Corsair V Helmet proves again that Arai’s main focus is the experienced rider who knows what a real helmet should do and have. It doesn’t fling fashion at you; it advances the art of building better helmets for riders. Its improvements and innovations reach down to the smallest details. Why? Partly obsession. Partly because Arai believes every part of a helmet is interrelated in both design and function. They don’t believe in change for the sake of change, fad, or marketing shock value.

Features:

  • Shell with Hyper-Ridge around the bottom enhances shell strength while providing a larger bottom opening
  • Larger bottom opening promotes ease of putting on and taking off the helmet
  • Peripheral belting across the forehead area of the shell enhances structural integrity while maintaining flexibility, low weight and shell size
  • Larger upper vent tabs make operating the vents easier even with thick winter gloves
  • Arai SAI shield with Super AdSis shield system
  • SAI shield is 5mm longer in each side and provides a wider field of view
  • DryCool liner
  • Rear mounting straps are slightly re-positioned exclusively to the Corsair V
  • Neckroll is removable and has additional exhaust channels to remove interior heat
  • Cheek pads have the exclusive Emergency Release Tab feature
  • Side exhaust cowls exhaust heat as well as add lateral stability at speed
  • Enhanced air inlets of the DF-9 diffuser increase airflow efficiency
  • Brow vents duct air into the temple area and out the side vents for maximum cooling
  • Exclusive AirWing provides unprecedented aerodynamic performance with 5 distinct positions
  • DOT / Snell M2015

Finally Got one. Corsair V
After owning and trying other helmet brands, I finally scored an Arai. First of all, these are hand made, and everything Anthony says about this product is true. There is a reason why they dont have any dramatic changes. It is because it works and there is an Arai difference. The Corsair V is good because it has a good shape and it also offers optional liners to really tweak the fit. What I like about it: Good comfort like my AGV Gp Tech. Feels small and light like my HJC RPHA 10. And great vision like my Shoei X-11. I have a 57cm head, and that just perfectly, even after the break in process. Don't be intemidated by the shield system. I like it and is very easy. Lastly, Arai and Revzilla have awesome customer service. Easily call or email them, you will get a person on the other side. Not a robot.

Fogs Easily
Great Helmet overall. The fit and finish are second to none however, this helmet by far fogs the quickest and easiest. It's annoying. So much so I called Arai personally with a complaint. There response? " Thishelmet doesn't fog, you are not using the features properly". I was not happy with that response. 2 different shields with the same exact outcome. It's terrible. A 800+ dollar helmet should not have this issue. Riding in the rain, cold and pretty much any weather below 60 is asking for a fogged shield. Other than that it's all good.

Only the best for MY head
My wife of all people pushed me into spending the additional $ for my birthday this year. I purchased this helmet in frost black. There is nothing on this helmet that doesn't scream badass, quality, safety, and comfort. ARAI truly knows how to make a helmet in every direction. This is probably my 10th helmet in the last few years and this is my top shelf "special" ride and track helmet.

Worth every dollar
I bought this as my very first helmet on the recommendation of another rider. I absolutely LOVE riding in this helmet! While it is made for the tuck position, it is not uncomfortable or cumbersome to wear in an upright or 3/4 riding position. That being said, once you get into a full tuck, you truly notice the level of performance that this helmet is designed for. I live in Texas and when wearing this helmet I am never finding myself thinking about how hot the helmet is. The vents do an excellent job of keeping hot air out and cool air flowing in. The visor has an exceptionally wide field of vision as well.

If you are looking for the BEST helmet on the market, this is the must have for you.

Best for comfort, air flow, ease of use!
This is the newer model of my RX7 Corsair helmet with a few improvements to make this helmet even better!! I tried on many helmets and saved the Arai for last (due to my budget). However once I tried on this helmet the fit and comfort, especially around my ears and forehead, were like none of the other helmets I had tried on. If you have an issue with your ears folding over when your put on a helmet like me then this is the helmet for you! The air flow vents are amazing and really help to keep me cool on hot summer days. The inside liner is very comfortable and easy to remove. Replacing the face shield was a little tricky the first time but once you get the hang of it, it is so easy. Bottom line...This is the best helmet out there for comfort, air flow, and ease of use. It may be on the more expensive end but how much is your head worth?

Quality Product with Great Features
I am generally a 7 1/2 in fitted ball caps. I ordered a size Large. I am extremely happy with the fitment and quality of this helmet. I bought it in Frost Black. For riding at night I use the Clear SAI shield that comes with the helmet. I bought the Purple Mirror Arai SAI Face Shield and would not want to use anything but a tinted shield for day time riding in Sunny conditions. I plan to purchase more tinted shields. Swapping the shield is somewhat tricky at first, but not unbearable after you've got the hang of it.

YOU SIMPLY CAN'T BEAT ARAI QUALITY!!! I GOT A STREET GLIDE AND IT LOOKS A LITTLE WEIRD WITH A FULL FACE HELMET BUT THE PROTECTION AND QUALITY OF ARAI IS PRICELESS.

I'm pretty sure this helmet saved my life! The fit is snug and won't ride up at high speeds. The ventilation is excellent and the extra 2mm on the face shield improves visibility especially when cranking your head in an off camber turn. Would recommend this helmet again and again.
Adrienne Z on Jul 30, 2015
Replacing my previous black corsair.
Christopher F on Jul 21, 2015
I did not have a helmet that fit my face shield.
KENNETH R on Jun 18, 2015
Basically, I like the current configuration of my skull. Arai is also a very comfortable fit.

But the venting is also better than the previous Corsair, and it feels like the rear wing and external design improves stability at Interstate speeds in the neighborhood of tractor trailers.

My 3rd Corsair V,best helmet ever made!
Jeff C on Jan 3, 2015
Awesome transaction
Warren H on Nov 27, 2014
I chose this helmet because of it's top-of-the-line safety protection but in side-by-side comparison to all the other top-of-the-line race helmets the temple cooling technology is what made the sale for me.
J O on Nov 3, 2014
High quality helmet !
alberto m on Nov 1, 2014
previous products. do you repair helmet linings?
william j m on Oct 14, 2014
Friend suggested this helmet. It is very comfortable. Yes, a bit spendy, but a few more dollars for comfort and safety is worth it.
Can never be disappointed in the best.
Gary O on Oct 14, 2014
Arai fits me best, I have an Arai XD-4 and the Corsair V in the same size fit similar. Slighty tighter than the XD-4 which is even better.
iFlyLow on Jul 10, 2014
Based on all the research I'd done, this was the best helmet out there. We'll see when it arrives.. :)
Sean G on May 29, 2014
A lot of Moto GP riders (Dani Pedrosa and Nicky Hayden) wear this helmet and a lot of local track guys all love it. Now I love it!! Great snug RACE FIT and flows air better than the HJC,Scorpion, and Icon helmets i have previously owned. No longer in use as it went through a low side in canyon and a slam after being hit by a car at 65 mph! helmet still is actually in good shape but better to be safe and get a new one but it will be another Corsair V for sure!!!
anthony h on May 12, 2014
This is their flagship helmet. Unfortunately I have had to use this once and I am not sure if I would be here today if I had not had this particular helmet on. It is a very high priced item, but ITS YOUR HEAD we are talking about :)

I have the Arai Defiant in a large but wanted to upgrade for a more aggressive track helmet. My current helmet is snug but I get some movement when head checking and helmet pressing against nose at high speeds ( I ride a naked bike/ no windscreen). Will the Corsair fit more snug since it is a race fit or should I down size to a medium? Thanks in advance.
blake s on Jul 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I can tell you , but I really like the helmet. It's my first helmet.

How does this compare to the RF 1200?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This helmet is designed for the track. They are similar but the corsair has a slightly wider visor, i'm talking millimeters but it makes a huge difference in your field of vision. Also better ventilation and lighter. Best helmet I've owned
how to choose the size ?
A shopper on May 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: read the how to on Arai's site. They go into detail. : )
I just purchased the Yamaha FZ-07 and wanted an awesome helmet. Is the Corsair V too sporty of a helmet for my bike or will the riding position of the FZ-07 work with the Corsair V positioning?
Thanks
A shopper on Dec 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I think the Corsair is an wonderful helmet for everything. I have a big scooter, a Yamaha T-Max and I am happy as a camper with the helmet. I have been always an Arai fan, I had before an Astro helmet and after many years I keep using it and it´s ir pretty good condition. So if it frets you and you like it, go for it. I hope I could help you.
How many shell sizes does the corsair v have? How does a medium shell size corsair v compare to a rx-q?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Both the Arai Corsair V Helmet and the RX-Q come in 5 shell sizes. The shell size measurements will also be the same on both models.
