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
- Complete system, pre-mounted on clear Arai MAX Vision visor (included)
- Compatible with Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Inserts With Brow Vents (sold separately)
- Enhanced aerodynamics
- Increased helmet stability
- Removable for easy cleaning
- No contact with visor: no scratching

Reviews & Questions
After 500 miles on my VFR Interceptor and CBR 600 RR, I feel I have enough information to provide a preliminary, first hand review.
If you don' want to read a lengthy review, then know this- I will be buying another at full price for one of my other helmets. That should say something.
For the rest of you...
I mounted this on a new Arai Corsair-V which I bought recently from Revzilla, as well as one I bought in late 2009 and one I bought in Japan in June of '08. No fit issues on any of these and no gasket adjustment needed. I don't personally have any issues with the Arai shield system and this introduces no complications at all.
Anthony's video review of the Pro Shield was excellent as usual, but he made a few comments that I feel might not have reflected the reality I have found after riding with this item.
First, he was critical of the amount of coverage of the peak smoke element on the sides in the retracted position (against the clear shield). He seemed to believe there was possibly not enough peripheral coverage. I can tell you this is a non issue, because there is no way for sunlight to get to your eyes from that angle IN THE HELMET. I tried- it turns out that the eye port blocks that angle, even from the rising sun at your shoulder position (as I determined this morning)
Second, Anthony felt the slider type vents were a little cheap-feeling- I have found the brow vents to work really well and are perhaps even better in some ways than the "flip up" standard SAI vents.
I discovered a few nice surprises, and a few minor drawbacks in use.
At speeds of up to 110 MPH there is no discernible effect on the aero properties of the helmet, on my specific bikes. Head-checks are the same as without this (always excellent with the Corsair-V's at any rate). This was honestly a surprise- I expected some issues.
Noise is pretty much the same- loud, but no louder than otherwise.. That's the nature of the Corsair-V, it's loud. (I do wear plugs, always). Note too, the gasket on the peak seems to act as something of a spoiler, perhaps decreasing the effective drag of the peak.
Rain and bugs turned out the be less trouble than I would have thought. Cleaning the peak was easy.
And on a lighthearted note... It's quite useful to be able to simply lift the shield to the up position when you are using it against the visor and an enormous bug has just killed itself precisely in the center of your field of view- almost as good as a tear-off....
Rain and even a bit of snow (riding here in the Rockies and it has been a weird spring) posed no special challenges. Just wiped off the parts afterward.
OK now, small downside items-
On a very bright day, when you have the smoke shield retracted against the clear shield, the result is somewhat less contrast than you would have with a smoke visor alone. Some reflection occurs between the inside of the smoke element and the clear visor. Not a big issue, but it's there, and it affects contrast a little.
Visually in the retracted position, things are a bit more cluttered than a standalone visor. You get used to it fast, but it's a factor. In a full tuck, you're probably better off retracting the peak.
Finally, while not specifically with this specific unit,I have found that the Max Vision visors (I have two, both without brow vents), when used with a Pinlock element, can generate mild scatter of oncoming headlights at night. No big deal, just something to be aware of. I neglected to order a Pinlockk insert for this setup, and will no doubt get one later this season.
There is absolutely no doubt that this system works and works well.
I would like to thank Revzilla for fantastic service on this and other orders.

I bought a new Arai helmet - Defiant-Pro-Cruise (awesome helmet btw) which came with the Pro-Shade System right out of the box. When I discovered the optional longer shield, I ordered that at the same time. Replacing the stock, shorter, shaded flip portion was a piece of cake.
Arai should make this longer one the standard and the shorter one the option. Of course, they wouldn't likely ever sell the shorter one. lol.

Ultimately, I am pleased with my purchase and I would buy it again.
