What's this?

Arai Quantum X Hi-Viz Helmet

The name Arai has been synonymous with quality and protective technologies since the beginning of their days and the Quantum X continues to push the bounds, proving why Arai stands at the top. The Quantum series has been the go to helmet for riders with a more round headshape and this stays true with the Quantum X, thanks to its balanced length and slight additional width. With the simple installation of a Corsair X head liner, the Quantum X can even be converted to fit those with an intermediate oval headshape.

The Arai Quantum 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 RX-Q.

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-SCLC Shell:

The new Peripherally Belted - Super Complex Laminate Construction shell design combines multiple materials and techniques created internally by Arai that deliver both performance and affordability.

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 Arai Quantum X Helmet
  • 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
  • QVF & QVR upper ventilation ducts look familiar but offer more adjustment and better flow through performance
  • PB -SCLC Shell has superb tensile strength due to a variety of carefully-positioned materials and light weight resin
  • Includes clear Pinlock insert
  • Snell 2015 and DOT approved

High Expectations Met With the Arai Quantum X Hi-Viz Helmet
To give context to this review, this is the fifth helmet I've owned including a Speed and Strength, the Shoei RF1200 and Shoei Qwest as well as a Shark Vision R. My ride is a NInja 1000 with a 3/4 upright riding position. I've ridden approximately 1,000 miles with this helmet in varying temps and weather.

I was looking for a high safety rated, comfortable, hi-viz helmet. I also wanted to wear it with the face shield cracked open slightly because I loved that feature so much on my Vision R. Being able to crack the face shield open is a great feature in my opinion because it reduces fog without having to use a pinlock lens, and keeps you cooler on hot days.

The Quantum X has met all these expectations. It's a very comfortable helmet for my round oval head, with the best air flow of any helmet I've owned.

I was able to really test the air flow one cold morning with wet hair (to accentuate my sensitivity to the flow). There was excellent air flow around my face, and a good amount of air moving in the rest of the helmet. Not sure any helmet really has air moving "through" it, but this is the best air flow I have felt in any helmet. By scrunching my shoulders up to create space at the top of the helmet I could feel excellent flow across the top of my head.

No problems with fogging so far, and I've used the helmet down to around 35 degrees F in wet weather. The helmet does come with a clear pinlock-ready shield and pinlock lens but I haven't had to use it.

The chin and brow vents are very easy to operate with gloves on while riding and the top vents are easy enough with a bit of practice.

I have been hesitant to buy a high end Arai because although they are DOT and SNELL approved some models have received poor SHARP ratings in side impact tests. This was true for the Quantum and the Quantum ST. It looks like Arai has addressed this issue in the Quantum X by reinforcing it with a peripheral composite belt (the new PB-SCLC shell). I have every expectation the issue has been addressed and look forward to the new SHARP ratings when they come out.

The shield latch mechanism is slightly more complicated than most helmets, but easy to operate while riding with just a little practice. It certainly does lock the shield down well in the latched position.

Similarly, the VAS Max Vision Shield is a little more complicated to change out than many helmets, but requires no tools, operates flawlessly, and is easy enough to use after a few practice shield changes. Movement opening and closing the shield is solid and smooth, and it's easy to find the anti-mist, slightly cracked open position.

I do miss the drop down sun visor of my Shark helmet, but the full dark smoke shield I ordered separately is much more effective at reducing brightness and glare. I was hoping to purchase a photochromic face shield that changes tint with the amount of sunlight but so far there is not one available for the Quantum X.

The helmet liner is very high quality and easy to remove for cleaning.

As far as quietness, this helmet is certainly up there with the other top quality helmets I've owned. I was hoping not to use earplugs but I still find them necessary.

Although I had taller and wider vision with my Shark, the range of vision on the Quantum is still excellent.

One thing I really love about this helmet is its weight. It's the lightest helmet I've owned and having had a chance to compare it against many different helmets in a retail location, I am very impressed with this feature.

The double D ring with snap retention system is very high quality, smooth operating and easy to use.

Style is subjective but hey, let's face it, this isn't a Valentino Rossi replica helmet. I really do like the hi-viz neon contrast with the black vents though. Whether the increased visibility of the neon will help drivers see me better remains to be seen, but it certainly can't hurt.

Honestly, there is nothing negative I can say about this helmet. It's definitely on the pricey side but so far I feel it's money well spent and I'm looking forward to many years of use.
