What's this?

Arai Defiant X Helmet

The Arai Defiant-X Helmet is steeped in style and protection. Building upon the original Defiant, the Defiant-X smooths out its predecessor's aggressive lines to produce a bold yet refined helmet. SFL shell construction is round and smooth to avoid catching on rough surfaces. The shape and materials create a strong shell to disperse energy upon impact. Facial Contour System cheek pads provide a snug yet comfortable fit. Arai's Free Flow System guides air underneath the helmet to improve overall ventilation for hot weather riding. The Arai DefiantX is the result of Arai's legendary quality and attention to detail. Its comfort, protection and style are a triple threat that is tough to beat.

Features:

  • SFL shell construction
  • Multi density EPS
  • Free Flow System (FFS) ventilation creates airflow under the helmet to reduce wind noise and turbulence while increasing hot air exhaust
  • Dual intake front vents, side exhausts and one-piece rear exhaust
  • Three position chin vent
  • Neck vent exhaust
  • VAS Max Vision face shield with included Pinlock insert lens
  • Removable, anti-microbial liner
  • Removable, washable cheek pads with 5mm peel-away layer for a perfect fit
  • Pockets for speakers
  • Facial Contour System (FCS) offers a snug fit by using a foam spring support in the cheek pad that compresses and rebounds without excessive pressure
  • Non-removable chin curtain
  • Double D-ring strap

New Defiant X
I am extremely happy with the Defiant X. It is very comfortable, and the new ventilation works wonders. The field of vision is also an improvement over my last helmet. I have been riding for close to 30 years and this is without a doubt, the best helmet I’ve worn.

Another usurper helmet by Arai
The attention to detail and quality is evident again in the Defiant X. Just a gorgeous helmet, albeit a slight retro, understated style. Fit and finish is superb. Venting is notably good.

My only gripe -- and it is a big annoyance -- is the clumsy method of flipping up the visor. you have to push down on a tab and then slightly pry out the visor from a catch pin. VERY hard to do with one hand. Have no idea why they chose that method.

The other quick is what I'll call some overengineering. It was very hard for me t0 figure out how to remove the cheek pads from the neck roll. There is a very small black plastic tab that slides in a nearly undetectable slot on the cheek pad backing. Baffling, and needlessly so. As well, the visor comes off fairly easily once you figure it out, but figuring it out will take you -- or at least took me -- several agonizing minutes, afraid I was going to break something.

Is this helmet with $600? On features and fit and finish, no, but close. When you factor in the commitment of Arai to safety, yes.

WOW
I waited for the Defiant X to come out after watching the review video. The airflow in this thing is great. I feel just as much air with it as I do my half helmet and face shield, and probably more to the top of my head. Been riding in near 100 degree days in Texas. Humidity is not a problem either. Crack the face shield and start moving and it is clear. Super quiet even at freeway speeds. Great helmet!!

How many shell sizes are there for this helmet?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2018
Are they seriously planning on producing this helmet with no emergency cheekpad release system at all?!

Can Pro Cruise be added?
Mitchell W on Feb 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: When you say "Pro Cruise" do you actually mean Arai's Pro shade system? If so then it will probably accept the Pro Shade system based on the product info page on AriaAmericas website. Just visit their website and search for the defiant-x. it will probably use the same VAS-V Pro Shade system as the quantum, signet, and corsair helmets. do not get the VAS-V Pro Shade confused with SAI Pro Shade.

Which color is in the review video?

Conspicuously absent is the 3XL size offering from the previous version. Is 3XL coming sometime down the road in this model?
