Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Helmet Review and Sizing Info from STG

  • Arai Corsair-X Helmet Nakasuga-2 Weight The Arai Corsair-X Helmet Weighed 3.65 lbs in a size Medium on our shipping scale.
  • Arai Corsair-X Helmet Nakasuga-2 Sizing We feel the Arai Corsair-X Helmet has an Intermediate Oval Shape, while offering a comfortable fit with an easy on / off effort as compared to other race style helmets. Using Van as the benchmark he measures 58cm with an Intermediate Oval Head Shape which according to the Arai Size Chart puts him in a medium. In his opinion The size Medium Corsiar X Helmet delivers a comfortable fit that leans to the loose side just a bit as compared to the Shoei X-14, AGV Corsa (medium small), HJC RPHA 11 PRO and Bell Pro Star Helmets in the same size (medium).
  • Arai Corsair-X Helmet Performance In Van's opinion the Arai Corsair-X Helmet does everything you would expect from a top level Arai and is a marked improvement over the Corsair V Helmet. Ventilation is excellent, noise level is better than expected (the Arai Corsair Helmets are known to be a bit noisy due to the side pod design and extreme air flow), stability at speed is solid and the field of vision excellent. Additionally the included Pinlock Insert is very effective at keeping the fog at bay. The only real negatives with this helmet would be the shield change is a bit tougher than the competitors and we have seen isolated issues with some of the small vents on the shield over time (replacement parts are available) which can happen with most any helmet. End of the day this helmet offers excellent quality and value.
  • Who is this helmet right for? The Arai Corsair-X performs very well on both the track and the street. It has the technical features we look for on track and the comfort needed for a long ride on the street which allow this helmet to crossover seamlessly.

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Helmet Fitment

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Helmet Fitment

Intermediate Oval: Arai is the only company offering multiple interior-fit shapes to better address the infinite variety of riders’ head shapes and sizes. The Arai Corsair-X uses their Intermediate Oval interior fit shape. Arai’s Intermediate Oval shape is a little shorter front-to-back and a little wider side-to-side compared to their Long Oval Shape.

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Helmet Technical Features:

 Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 VAS Shield Mechanism

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 VAS Shield Mechanism: The SAI shield on the Corsair-V has only a single axis pivot point but the Corsair-X has the new VAS mechanism with a variable axis incorporating a moving pivot point. By combining the pin trajectory, which is based on an imaginary axis, with the two trajectories of the double pivot point slot, the shield opens and closes smoothly even with the much lower shield mount position. A dual-function lever releases both the side cover / pod and shield pin for quick and simple shield removal. Being able to see the shield mechanism allows for easier shield changes.

 Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Improved Shield Latch

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Improved Shield Latch: The VAS latch captures and securely holds the shield closed to help prevent unexpected opening. In addition to the de-mist function, the larger latch allows for intuitive and seamless shield operation.

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Diffuser Type 12

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Diffuser Type 12: New Type 12 diffusers are 20mm longer and take in 19% more air than the previous design. In addition, the new air intake vents have three positions and are designed to help provide improved sealing which decreases road noise and water intrusion.

Arai Corsair-X VAS Max-V (BV) Shield

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 VAS Max-V (BV) Shield: VAS Max Vision shield is standard to provide better visibility in all seasons and for all types of riding. A clear Pinlock insert is standard with the Corsair-X.

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Chin Curtain

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Chin Curtain: The new chin curtain accentuates the egg-shaped form of the outer shell. In addition, it blocks the intrusion of turbulent air from the underside of the helmet and increases negative pressure to enhance the function of the chin vent by drawing more air from the mouth area.

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Improved Glance Off Ability

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Improved Glance Off Ability: The VAS pivot cover is now smaller and lower than the previous design, yielding an average of 24mm more area above the cover. The shell is now smoother along the Snell test line in the temple area, thus increasing the helmet's ability to glance off objects during an impact. Compared with the shell of the Corsair-V, the smooth area around the temple is increased by an average of 24mm on the new VAS model. Having a rounder, smoother shell over a larger area increases the ability of a helmet to glance off objects more easily.

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 PB-SNC 2 Shell

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 PB-SNC 2 Shell: Created from super fiber and special synthetic fibers, and assembled by Arai experts, the shell provides both superb tensile strength and flexibility characteristics. Like the metal bands used to hold a wooden barrel together, a variety of carefully placed materials, combined with newly developed resins result in strong shells with less weight.

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Eco-Pure Liner

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 Eco-Pure Liner: The fully removable interior comfort liner has been improved and updated with Eco-Pure material, which helps maintain a neutral pH level close to the skin. In addition, the new, soft frame material is more comfortable and features removable temple padding and brand new removable/replaceable crown pad to allow for a customized fit.

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 IC Duct5

Arai Corsair-X Nakasuga-2 IC Duct5: The new IC Duct-5 provides 11% more air flow than the previous Delta Duct 5. The new, bigger switch features three positions, is easier to open, and limits water intrusion when fully closed.

Additional Features:

  • VAS (Variable Axis System) shield and side pods are exclusive to the Arai Corsair-X Helmet
