Arai Contour-X Helmet
As with every Arai, the Countour-X is formed around protection, first and foremost. Manufactured by hand, the outer shell maintains core strength but with a substantial weight reduction. The smooth, round shape is a key Arai signature and primarily designed to ‘glance-off’ and spread impact forces. Using the aerodynamic and protective abilities of Arai’s full-race helmets and all the experience and know-how earned over millions of road miles, the new Countour-X slips through the air neatly and efficiently, wrapping its wearer in a cocoon of luxury. It offers a fresh choice for riders that want the very best performance from a helmet – in terms of protection, comfort, and ease of wear, day-in-day-out – with zero compromise.
For easy access on and off, the Countour-X features a 5mm flare around the base, while the VAS MAX vision visor comes with a Pinlock insert ready to use. The premium brushed nylon interior is removable and features Facial Contour System (FCS) and neck roll wire pocket. It also features Emergency Release System (ERS).
Comprehensive and controllable ventilation is based around 13 ventilation ports: 7 intake, 6 exhaust. The 3D Arai logo feeds cooling air into two central intake points and works well at low speed, alongside dual F1-derived tear duct top intakes, twin brow vents and 2-position sliding air-scoop, filtered chin vent. Hot air is efficiently extracted via the 3-way one-piece rear exhaust/spoiler, twin flush-fit side exhausts (with foam dams to reduce noise) and neck exhaust.
PB e-cLc Outer Shell
Peripherally Belted e-Complex Laminate Construction.
The PB e-cLc outer shell design outlines a stylish, organic shape and uses a Peripherally Belted e-Complex Laminate Construction for lightweight strength; it’s designed to glance off and spread impact forces. New materials have been used to substitute the ARmat as middle layer, resulting in a substantial weight reduction while maintaining the same strength as the PB-cLc construction.
Features Logo duct works well at low speed and with an upright riding position and can be opened or closed easily with summer or winter gloves, via a short-stroke lever placed at the top— if the rider can't see the lever and the logo is in its normal place, the duct is open Rear spoiler sits a little more forward on the shell and is fed by 3 ports in the shell and efficiently draws air, but also smooths airflow over (and from the side) of the helmet, improving stability and reducing buffeting, especially while overtaking at highway speeds resulting in much less rider fatigue 3D ARAI logo duct, just 3.5 mm in depth, feeds two central 10 mm intake ports Logo duct is designed to breakaway in the event of an impact Aerodynamic rear spoiler with one piece exhaust function The one-piece aerodynamic rear exhaust/spoiler, operated by a 3-way switch, is inspired by the DF-X2 of the Corsair-X, but redesigned for touring use Manufactured as thin and light as possible, the aerodynamic rear spoiler is designed to crush or break away upon impact, therefore having no influence on protective performance Sliding chin vent actuating mechanism is thicker and easy to use with gloves Designed to fit and connect a communication system easily on the shell exterior and without any compromise to the protection offered by the inner EPS liner 3-position (open, midway and closed) sliding air-scoop chin vent which flows a large intake volume of air and has a replaceable filter Outer shell design outlines a stylish, organic shape and uses Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate Construction (PB-cLc2) for lightweight strength and integrated side ducts Extra later of super fiber belting, in outer shell, maintains rigidity in a crucial area while offering flat sides for easy fitment of an intercom system Shell flares 5 mm around the opening, making it easier to get the helmet on and off (for newcomers to ARAI, the initial 'snugness' when putting the helmet on or taking it off can be challenging) With Variable Axis System (VAS), the visor mounting position is lowered, yielding an average of an additional 24 mm across both temple areas, in pursuit of the ideal smoother shape that increases the ability of glancing off energy For a nice, clean final look and ride, a small stitched opening on the inside of the neck roll allows the intercom system installer to easily tuck away any excess wiring that may be left-over after installing the speakersSnell M2020 and DOT approved
