Product Details

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.

Features:

  • 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

Flat-out works, and better than expected
I pre-ordered the Pro Shade when it was announced, and received it a few days ago. Thanks to ZLA's credits for previous purchases, I got it for a killer price.

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.

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.

Outstanding system - especially with the optional longer shade!
Love it! I have the standard length pro-shade system on my Corsair V. It has great, but like many others I wished the shaded flip portion was longer. With the arrival of the optional longer shaded flip visor, this system is now perfect in my opinion.
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.

So much better than sun glasses
Absolutely love this product as a commuter. I am on an SV650 so i do notice a little increase in wind noise with the shade in the up position, but nothing to be truly worried about. The ease of use is absolutely great. I am never caught out by changing light and having the pinlock is a real bonus. The built in vents do feel a bit cheap, but certainly flow air well. I think this is the best option in regards to giving your helmet maximum usability. Far better than buying a pair of shields and pinlocks to go with.

Great product for someone who wears corrective glasses, and for someone who hates to have to lug around an extra visor.
Let me start off by saying that I wear glasses with corrective lenses; having transition lenses or wearing sunglasses has too many shortcomings. I was looking for an alternative; which I have owned smoked shields in the past, so I decided to try one again. I bought this shield, however I was very skeptical. I did not like the overall design and the vents in the shield look cheap. I decided to go ahead and purchase the item, the shop that I bought it from gave me a 100% satisfaction guarantee. By the way, the alternative smoke shield was only $20.00 less. I have been riding with the shield for about a month now, and it works great. I would like the visor to come down farther on the sides, but overall I do not have issues with the sun peering through and bothering me. The most notable aspects of this visor are how well the visor stays locked, with little added noise, accompanied by an overall ease of use.

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

Good upgrade
I like this visit quite a bit. It's is very convenient and the install is easy. I did notice some increased wind noise when the visor is up, but it is really nice to no longer need sunglasses.

Great concept, but...
Had great expectations for this product. The design seems good, easy to use but if you are an upright rider(cruiser/touring) then you will probably find that the tint shield edge is right in your field of view. Needs to be about 3/4 of an inch bigger. As it is now very distracting. If you are a sport bike rider would probably not be a problem. Unfortunately I am stuck with it now, as you need to ride with it to really see the issue.

Not up to Arai's quality standards
I bought the Pro Shade for use on my RX-Q helmet. The rubber trim piece on the top of the unit I received worked its way loose and was flapping around the first day I used the visor. I removed as much of the trim piece as I could but the chunk that was left is pretty much impossible to remove. Also, I do notice extra noise levels from the Pro Shade. So I've found it disappointing on a couple of counts. I'm still using it however as it does serve the intended purpose and I appreciate the sun protection when needed.

This product does what it was meant to do
The Arai ProShade System was easy to install. It works beautifully, shading the upper 2/3rds of the visual field. I find that the shaded area is quite adequate for normal situations and it's great not to have to change my glasses or the face shield. There aren't any noise issues at all. I think this is a great product.
