Arai Corsair V Solid 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 advanced 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. We don’t believe in change for the sake of change, fad, or marketing “shock” value.

Features:

  • Newly designed 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
  • New Arai “SAI” shield with Super AdSis shield system
  • New “SAI” shield is 5mm longer in each side and provides a wider field of view
  • New “SAI” shield and base plates are exclusive to Corsair V helmets
  • Latest generation of Dry Cool line has a new silver-grey color
  • 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
  • Newly designed side exhaust cowls exhaust heat as well as add lateral stability at speed
  • Enhanced air inlets of the new DF-9 diffuser increase airflow efficiency
  • Brow vents now 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 approved
  • Snell M2010 Certified

Excellent airflow, comfort and gorgeous design/paint I've never had an Arai before. I have had a couple Shoei helmets including the GT Air which I really like, and a Ruby Belvedere. The Arai is a very comfortable helmet that flows a ton of air and is surprisingly quiet. It's a little heavier than I would have thought, but it doesn't feel heavy on your head and it's very stable at speed. I also just love the design. I'm a fan of the IOM race and think this helmet looks cool as all get out. The paint quality is fantastic; I got it with the gold mirror shield and the tint is nice for sunny days. August 24, 2015
Excellent Product Excellent product i used many times during my trips. August 4, 2015
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. June 1, 2015
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. May 30, 2015
Beautiful! I've spent the past 4 years in a vector, the fit was never quite right. This corsair not only fits better, but the wind noise is less & it feels great from the moment I put it on, until I take it off. Weight feel a bit lighter from what I can tell. This is also a beautiful looking helmet, so I suppose if you're a collector of the limited editions there's that. I'll be wearing mine! July 13, 2015
Russell Frost Graphic I originally bought the Arai Corsair V Russell Frost Graphic to use as a track helmet. Since I live 3+ hours from the closest track, and I do not go to track days as often as I thought I would, I ended up wearing this helmet for streets as well to get more use out of it. I'm not going to talk about the fit because everyone's head is different and you really should try the helmet of your liking and feel for yourself, rather than read how the helmet fits other reviewers' head shapes. But to give you a slightly better insight, I have a weirdly shaped head. If you were to look down to my head from top, it would look like an acorn. Intermediate oval (whatever that means) with wider rear. I have tried on numerous types of helmets to get the right, comfortable fit (Schuberth, HJC, Arai, Shoei, Bell, AGV, Shark). The most comfortable helmet for me was Shark from 15 years ago (I forgot the model#), and I should probably buy another Shark but no offline stores in NYC has Shark helmets to try on. But I digress. Arai Corsair V fits my head. I've gone on a few 2-3 hr rides and (some longer) without any comfort issue. Bit loud as any race helmet would be, but nothing ear plugs can't amend. Superb air flow. Kids love this graphic. I get tons of compliments, two thumbs up as well as waving from children who normally would be timid to make an eye contact with a man in black leather. Ladies love the graphic too. But most importantly, I'm absolutely in love with this graphic. Thanks for reading. July 11, 2015
Pictures don't do the camo graphic justice. Everyone knows of the Corsair V, and how it's one of the best helmets you can buy. The camo graphic is sweet, photos dont do it any justice. Nicky's face on it is a little wild, but its not bad in person. Just different, which is good. If you like this graphic and/or are one of the few people with a bike and gear setup to match it, buy this helmet, you wont be disappointed. I bought mine on closeout, but it feels like its worth more. The finish quality is second to none. If I had the money, I wouldnt hesitate to pay retail on Arai's flagship model. My only gripe is with the faceshield. Its a pain in the butt. June 8, 2015
great helmet excellent products light weight very comfortable air flow is excellent. I would certainly recommend this product.can be noisy when all the vents are open but that would be expected. May 28, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Adrienne Z: 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. Jul 30, 2015
Christopher F: Replacing my previous black corsair. Jul 21, 2015
KENNETH R: I did not have a helmet that fit my face shield. Jun 18, 2015
B B: 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.

Jeff C: My 3rd Corsair V,best helmet ever made! Jan 3, 2015
Warren H: Awesome transaction Nov 27, 2014
J O: 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. Nov 3, 2014
alberto m: High quality helmet ! Nov 1, 2014
william j m: previous products. do you repair helmet linings? Oct 14, 2014
Gary O: 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.

Bobby H: 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. Jul 10, 2014
Sean G: Based on all the research I'd done, this was the best helmet out there. We'll see when it arrives.. :) May 29, 2014
anthony h: 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!!! May 12, 2014
Virginia L: 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 :) Apr 23, 2014
Scott B: Premium quality after watching the review videos by revzilla. Apr 14, 2014
Peter K: I chose this helmet because of its reputation. Oct 5, 2013
blake s asked: 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. Jul 28, 2014

A shopper asked: 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

Samantha W: 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. Dec 16, 2014
