Arai doesn’t come out with brand new helmets that often, so when they do you know it’s special. The Corsair-X breaks ground on a couple new designs and chief among them is a new, rounder shell that has been specifically shaped to increase the chance you glance off an impact and not just take the hit directly. Improving energy absorption, this added safety doesn’t increase weight or drag and still performs just like you’d expect any Arai would. Ventilation is quite impressive and each of the six large vents are three position adjustable ensuring you can always dial-in the airflow. The Variable Axis Shield System allows the face shield to be positioned lower on the shell and besides creating a smooth action, the locking latch is low, large and within easy reach. A clear Pinlock insert is standard and just to help that much more in poor conditions, the shield has two adjustable air vents itself. Summed up, the Corsair-X is a helmet that will carry Arai for years to come.
The Biltwell Bonanza embraces the retro motorcycle look like no other helmet available. The correct period detailing, an impressive flat metallic paint job and an optional bubble shield put the Bonanza into ultra-cool territory. Hipster, old timer, cruiser or standard, the Biltwell Bonanza helmet has style that is welcomed by all.
One of the first companies to make an adventure touring specific helmet, Shoei has been well represented over the years by the Hornet DS. The time for a replacement has come though and the very advanced Hornet X2 Dual Sport helmet is it. Placing a big emphasis on aerodynamics, the X2 features a noticeably sleeker mouthpiece, a completely redesigned visor and vents that are better positioned to scoop air in. The shell is a composition of Shoei’s proven Multi-Ply Matrix AIM+ material and by using the CNS-2 shield, you get optically correct vision. Street or off-road, globetrotting or weekend ride, the Hornet X2 has a design that comes as close to that happy medium as you’ll find.
Premium Scorpion craftsmanship at a price that is still lower than the competition. Answering the call for a MotoGP caliber helmet, Scorpion created the EXO-R2000 as an entirely new design that compromises nothing whether at the track or on the street. Using Scorpion’s own special composite blend, a shell was formed that stays light and strong while its 4 shell sizes ensure a perfect fit. A channeled EPS liner combines with the AirFit® Liner Inflation System to create an interior that stays comfortable and flows plenty of air. From the dual density foam to the sleek and symmetrical face shield and the titanium d-ring, the Scorpion EXO-R2000 helmet has the detailing to be the envy of motorcyclists everywhere.
An all new helmet from Scorpion, the EXO-T1200 is intended to be the company’s premier touring/sport touring lid. Similar to the EXO-R2000 in regards to its construction, the T1200 gets the lightweight TCT composite shell, the same sleek fitting faceshield and the handy AirFit system. Touring specific designs include a 3 position drop down sunshield and the new VSV (Venturi Super Vent) ventilation system. And yet even with its premier status in the Scorpion line, the EXO-T1200 still comes in less than most of its direct competition.
