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.


  • 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

What I don't like There's 80+ positive reviews so cutting out all the praises here is what I don't like after 3 months use. - Definitely for oval shaped heads. Of course I'm not, so my chin touches the chin bar at higher speeds when force of wind presses against frontal area of helmet. - chin curtain is built in and slides in and out of chin bar. Does not cover well to block out cold and is difficult to use with gloves on. It also must be retracted before putting helmet on. - Visor system is horrible for a $800 lid. This is a common compliant for a reason with users. I feel it's always going to break from using too much force and it's simply to cumbersome to have to pull and pry visors off and on. I know it's causing wear and tear on the visors and the helmets visor retaining mechanism. Makes me want to not change visors at all. - it's LOUD...really loud. Also when not in a tuck position, I sometimes hear the "beer bottle" effect or whistling from top vents. Stops when you tuck. Definitely a race/track lid -$800 With all these problems it still looks incredibly cool. Color me squid, I'm keeping it. January 27, 2015
Incredible Helmet. If it fits your head shape, it is the ultimate There is no better helmet, except maybe the 3500$ carbon fiber version--but that is 3500 bucks. January 26, 2015
Another fine product from Arai Not much to say,this helmet was purchased to replace one of four Arai helmets already in the family . In my humble opinion Arai are the best out there for the price. January 5, 2015
Amazing helmet for superbikes Since I bought this helmet I am sorprised because it reached all my spectations. I really do not have words to describe this amazing helmet. It is very light to use, its wind entrances refresh your head when the climate is hot. October 14, 2014
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. July 24, 2014
Fogging is a bummer Best helmet I ever bought, worst shield fogging wise. I love this helmet. The colors pop and Nicky Hayden is the MAN!!! Yeah 69! However the shield fogs like a nightmare. I bought a Gold Mirror for 80 bucks and it still fogs. Contacted Arai and they told me some high tech feature which basically meant cracking the shield open. They also recommended a pinlock but for another 65 dollars they can keep it. Other than the bummer shield its worth every penny. July 31, 2014
An all around excellent helmet! I've been known to put a couple helmets to the test. My first helmet was a Arai RX-7 Corsair that saved my life after going down at around 100mph. I absolutely love the Corsair and the new Corsair V is everything the predecessor was and then some. With noticeably higher visibility and improved aerodynamics its worth every dollar. June 23, 2014
Corsair V Great helmet with high speed stability, I am very happy with my purchase. April 28, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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?

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
