PERIPHERAL BELTING & STRUCTURAL NET COMPOSITE
Created for Arai’s Formula 1 helmets, the belt extends across the shell’s forehead area above the eye-port opening, enhancing the structural integrity while maintaining flexibility and low weight. It’s incorporated into Arai’s advanced SNC (Structural Net Composite) shell construction that uses proprietary net strands that work like rebar to bond shell layers more securely for even better shell integrity.
SIDE-VENT EXHAUST PORTS
The sculpted exhaust ports are designed to clear interior air and heat more efficiently.
PATENTED AIRWING & DF-10 DIFFUSER
Arai’s exclusive, adjustable AirWing is designed to reduce drag, turbulence and buffeting. It provides unprecedented aerodynamic performance options via five adjustable positions. The DF-10 offers enhanced air inlets to increase airflow efficiency. A middle-intake slot creates more negative pressure “pull” for even faster venting of stale air. Larger upper-vent toggles work with thick gloves, and the center top vent is resculpted for more air intake.
FCS® CHEEK PAD DESIGN & EXCLUSIVE 5MM PEEL-AWAY LAYER
FCS® uses an innovative and exclusive spring support built into the cheek pad to add just the right amount of pressure when needed while being worn, but then easily moves out of the way for easier helmet on/off. The cheek pads feature a 5mm peel-away layer for added room if you need it, giving you even more ability to craft the perfect fit and comfort for your face.
LATEST-GENERATION DRY-COOL VENTED NECK ROLL
The fully removable liner, utilizing Arai’s Dry-Cool® material, transfers heat and moisture away from the rider quickly and efficiently. The neck roll is not only removable and replaceable, it also adds yet another stale-interior-air exhaust outlet through channels in the EPS liner.
EMERGENCY CHEEK PAD RELEASE SYSTEM
This now-copied groundbreaking Arai innovation was specifically developed to allow easier access to an injured rider by sliding out, making helmet removal easier for trained medical personnel. This gives you a real idea of where Arai’s priorities lie.
PRO SHADE SYSTEM COMPATIBLE
