Arai Corsair X Nicky Hayden Helmet

Nicky Hayden, there are not many in his league. As a MotoGP World Champion and true legend of American motorcycle racing, it goes without saying that any piece of gear showcasing his name and number is expected to reach just as high as the rider himself. With the Arai Corsair X Nicky 6 helmet, riders throughout the world will not be disappointed. As it comes to the world stage with one of the most robust feature-sets and skillfully crafted designs ever, the Corsair X from Arai is an instant podium topper amongst racing motorcycle helmets. Add in a bit of the signature Nicky Hayden aesthetics, and you will be rocking one of the most unique lids on any road or track upon which you travel.

In true Arai fashion, the Corsair-X Helmet has taken helmet technology and rider protection one step further by engineering a helmet that not only guards against direct impacts, but is specifically designed to minimize the effect of "glancing off" impacts as well. Arai has created a stronger shell and smoother shape that is more likely to redirect impact energy than absorb it (therefore decreasing the amount of force transferred to the body). To increase this potential to glance off impact energy, the VAS (Variable Axis System) side pod, pivot cover is smaller in size and its position on the shell is lower.

The Arai Corsair X Motorcycle Helmet features a chin curtain that helps to block air intrusion from the turbulent air underneath the helmet, as well as increases negative pressure to enhance the exhaust ventilation performance. The interior lining includes Arai's signature 5mm peel away ear pocket padding and ear pocket recess to accommodate communicator speakers.

VAS Shield System:

Normally the shield mounting position must remain relatively high, because a lower shield pivot will not allow the shield to open or close. The VAS (Variable Axis System) has a variable axis (moving pivot point). This allows shield opening and closing even with the 24mm lower shield mount position, compared to the Corsair V.

VAS Shield Latch System:

VAS shield latch system captures and holds the shield closed more securely to help prevent unexpected opening. In addition to a de-mist position, the larger latch design allows for an intuitive and seamless operation of the shield.

PB SNC2 Shell:

The Corsair X helmet shell is constructed from Super Fiber and other special synthetic fibers developed for F-1 helmet visor panels, assembled and bonded by Arai experts. A specially-developed resin creates stronger bonds between shell materials with less weight.

Diffuser Type 12:

The Corsair X Type 12 air diffusers are longer than the Corsair V and are straightened for improved aerodynamics, working together with the AirWing to improve stability, and creating a 19% gain in efficiency. The air intake vents are extremely adjustable and have three positions (closed, half open and fully open) and create a tight seal to decrease wind noise and water intrusion.

Eco Pure Liner:

The fully removable interior liner system is made from Eco Pure material, which helps maintain neutral acidity levels close to human skin and antibacterial consumption, as well as a softer liner material and adjustable temple padding to allow for a customized fit.

VAS V MV Shield:

The VAS MAX Vision shield is standard to provide better visibility in all seasons and for all types of riding and comes standard with a clear anti-fog Pinlock insert.

Additional Features:

  • VAS (Variable Axis System) shield and side pods are exclusive to the Corsair X
  • Dual function lever releases both the side pod and the face shield for quick and simple face shield removal
  • VAS shield latch system captures and holds the face shield closed and provides a de-mist position to slightly crack the shield open
  • VAS MAX Vision face shield provides excellent visibility in all seasons thanks to the included Pinlock insert
  • Neckroll is removable and has additional exhaust channels to remove interior heat
  • Cheek pads have the Emergency Release Tab feature
  • IC Duct5 forehead vent provides 11% more airflow than the Corsair V, features 3 positions and is overall large and easy to operate with gloves
  • PB SNC2 Shell has superb tensile strength due to a variety of carefully-positioned materials and light weight resin
  • Arai's R75 shell shape creates a rounder, smoother helmet to enhance energy and impact dispersion
  • Includes clear Pinlock insert
  • Snell 2015 and DOT approved

Feels like a top of the food chain helmet.
I measured my head using the instructions here. I bought a size small and it fits nicely. I later learned Arai helmets are pretty large in terms of shell size. Keep that in mind if you're looking for a more svelte appearance. I get a lot of compliments on the nicki 6. I would say the colors are a tad on the lighter side in real life, specifically the reds and the blues. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.

My First Top of the line Arai
I've been using a Vector helmet (shogun) since 2008 and have loved the fit, finish and especially the airflow and weight.

I've always wanted to get an Edwards Laguna helmet but since they stopped producing that the Corsair X Hayden was next on the list.

The fit is true to feel (just the break in will take time, so I've been wearing this around the house a lot while playing games and doing homework...:P) I wear a L in most helmets (except for the european sizes which run a size smaller) and transitioning from my Vector to the Corsair X was seamless. It feels lighter and more airflow is felt but yet the wind noise is low (however, I ride with ear plugs so its about the same as my Vector).

I hope that Arai will come out with say a Pinlock shield with tear-off posts, now that would be pretty interesting.

Other than that, Overall a great helmet and the pictures don't do the colors on the helmet justice, you've gotta see it in person.
