Arai Pro Shade System for SAI-Compatible Helmets

Nowadays it is quite common to use a retractable sun-visor that is situated between the helmet’s outer- and inner shell to protect against sun glare. However, it is Arai’s opinion that this construction could affect the performance of a helmet during impact. As the Pro Shade System is completely mounted on the outside of the helmet, it will not in any way negatively affect the performance of the helmet.

The Pro Shade System is a small peak that is locked in position. Unlocking is easy; just pull the Pro Shade System forward, then it can be flipped down with a flick of the hand to act as an effective sun-visor. The Pro Shade System is the complete all-weather system for serious touring riders, offering protection against sun glare, fogging and misting, especially for riders that prefer an upright seating position and/or the comfort of a fairing, the Pro Shade System will enhance the rider’s comfort significantly.


  • Fits all Arai SAI full-face helmets including the Arai Corsair V, Vector 2, RX-Q, Arai Signet-Q and Defiant

  • Compatible with Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Inserts With Brow Vents (sold separately)
  • Enhanced aerodynamics
  • Increased helmet stability
  • Removable for easy cleaning

Arai Pro Shade System 4.1 5 79 79
This product works as advertized The shield was easy to install if done per the demo on Revzilla. I found the length and design of the sun shield to be appropriate, it allows clear unshaded views for mirrors. May change my mind once I have the sun bouncing of the mirror into my eyes but that normally is not an issue. Just wish is was less expensive and that they had one for my older Aria Vector Helmet.

Excellent. The pro-shade system is excellent, especially since it is curved at the bottom and allows me to see my instrument panel and GPS clearly. November 2, 2015
As good as you can get for Arai Since Arai keeps their helmets SNELL certified and doesn't use internal drop down shades, this is pretty much as good as you can do. After operating it a few times, it's quite easy to use while on the road. The shape of the lens, with the high cut sides & partial length front actually works well on a standard motorcycle for the sun. The gaps at the front bottom are actually perfect to look at maps and gauges with no tinted lens in the way. Additionally, since this is a pinlock lens, adding the internal lens (separately) it works very well for fog and weather. After using it now for several hundred miles in varying conditions, I can say that it works really well for what it is - easy to operate, provides shade/tint, and not much wind noise/friction.

Good Functionality but scratches my helmet I wear glasses and I love the functionality of the Pro Shade System. Once I became accustomed to raising it and locking it in place it was easy to use and provided the shade I needed. Also for my particular use the gap at the bottom of the shade is the perfect size for me to look down at my GPS map and my gauges and see them clearly without the shade. I have noticed that the main visor is rubbing against the top of my helmet and is scuffing it up. I will contact Arai and find out if this is expected. September 7, 2015
Cheap brow vents I have 300 miles of riding time with this Arai air pro shade system on my Arai RX-Q. I didn't quite understand how to operate the shield at first, took about 8 minutes to understand how to lock the shield up and move back down. It's a very simple mechanism once figured out. My review is exactly like the video review from Revzilla. Brow vents feel a bit loose and cheap. I didn't experience sun through the sides but upon direct sunlight it helped me tremendously since I already wear eye gasses and I can't wear sunglasses. It doesn't feel premium for an expensive visor but I love it over having to carry multiple visors and is great for early morning rides with no sun to a sudden change in the weather and one can very quickly move the shield down and ride comfortably with direct sunlight.

Surprisingly good... I was bit hesitant but was tired of carrying two different shields, but I really like this. Even in the up position, comfortable and it doesn't catch the wind too much. A great product and worth the money. August 10, 2015
Works great on my RX-Q helmet This pro shade system with its smoke visor and pinlock face shield serve a dual purpose. The smoke colored visor enables me to see better on sunny days and if night time can be moved up to just use the clear face shield. Most times I don't notice any wind noise when the smoke visor is raised up and when I do it is minimal. Also, the pin lock face shield, which is part of the system, does not fog up at all during rides if you install a pinlock insert to the face shield. You need to install a clear pinlock insert (not included with this system), since the visor is smoke colored. I wear eyeglasses and this system does not interfere with them. August 8, 2015
My wife hated it! Purchased this so my wife's RX-Q would have a visor/sunshield but it is not easy to open the shield and the visor operation is difficult to use. After several attempts to use it she asked that they original visor be re-installed and she would just wear sunglasses. Not the result I was hoping for. August 6, 2015
