Arai Corsair X RC Helmet

The Arai Corsair-X Helmet is already a track focused full face helmet designed to excel accelerating out of turns and rocketing onto the back straight. The Arai Corsair-X RC borrows the carbon fiber blend used in Arai's Formula 1 helmets and applies it to their top of the line motorcycle helmet. The result is the perfect combination of stiffness and flexibility in a lightweight shell.

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.

PB SNC2 Shell:

  • Constructed from Super Fiber and other special synthetic fibers developed for F-1 helmet visor panels
  • Assembled and bonded by Arai experts
  • Specially-developed resin creates stronger bonds between shell materials with less weight
  • Shell has superb tensile strength due to a variety of carefully-positioned materials and light weight resin

VAS Shield System:

  • VAS (Variable Axis System) shield and side pods are exclusive to the Arai Corsair X Helmet
  • Variable axis (moving pivot point) allows shield mount position to be lower than most helmets
  • 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 securely
  • Provides a de-mist position to slightly crack the shield open
  • Larger latch design allows for intuitive and seamless operation

VAS V MV Shield:

  • Provides excellent visibility in all seasons
  • Includes clear anti-fog Pinlock insert

Diffuser Type 12:

  • X Type 12 air diffusers are longer than the Corsair V
  • Straightened for improved aerodynamics
  • Work together with the AirWing to improve stability and creates a 19% gain in efficiency
  • Air intake vents have three positions (closed, half open and fully open)
  • Vents are easy to operate with gloved hands
  • Air intake vents create a tight seal to decrease wind noise and water intrusion

Arai's Proprietary Liner:

  • Fully removable and soft  interior liner
  • Made from odor-resistant material which helps maintain neutral acidity levels close to human skin
  • Adjustable temple padding to allow for a customized fit
  • Neckroll is removable and has additional exhaust channels to remove interior heat


  • Snell 2020 and DOT approved
  • Cheek pads have the Emergency Release Tab feature
