Arai XC-W Helmet Review and Sizing Info from STG

  • Arai XC-W Sizing We feel the Arai XC-W Helmet has an Intermediate Oval Shape, while offering a comfortable fit with an easy on / off effort as compared to other race style helmets.
  • Arai XC-W Certification Snell and DOT Approved.

Information from Arai Helmets:

The XC-W is yet another example of Arai’s decades-long tradition of improving on what works, redefining how open-face helmets can look – and protect. The most telling feature is the extended coverage in the lower jaw-cheek pad area – extending 1 3/16” forward compared to the previous model (and traditional open-face ¾ helmets). While the look may be reminiscent of an ancient Greek warrior’s helmet, the performance is as modern as it comes. The XC-W provides a measure of lower-jaw protection that’s been missing from previous open-face helmets, which leave that part of the face exposed. The XC-W is color matched to the 2018 Honda Goldwing Red and Silver motorcycles and comes standard with a peak.

Arai XC-W Helmet Fitment

Arai XC-W Helmet Fitment

Intermediate Oval: Arai is the only company offering multiple interior-fit shapes to better address the infinite variety of rider's head shapes and sizes. The Arai XC-W 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 XC-W Helmet Technical Features:

Arai XC-W TDF-3 Front Vent

Arai XC-W TDF-3 Front Vent: Working with the DDL-4 exhaust vents, the TDF-3 front vent is designed to further improve intake airflow to the XC's interior.

Arai XC-W Low-Profile Shield Arms

Arai XC-W Low-Profile Shield Arms: The low-profile shield arms on the XC give the helmets a sleeker, more aerodynamic shape that integrates better with the XC's shell design for less air resistance.

Arai XC-W Vented Neck Roll

Arai XC-W Vented Neck Roll: Arai's vented neck roll uses the prevailing airflow under the rider's neck to further enhance ventilation by extracting more interior heat and stale air.

Arai XC-W DDL-4 Ventilation

Arai XC-W DDL-4 Ventilation: Directly from Arai's RX-Q model – the Ultimate Street Helmet – the XC's DDL-4 exhaust vents are designed to maximize airflow at real-world street speeds.

Arai XC-W Side Cowl Exhausts

Arai XC-W Side Cowl Exhausts: Completing the XC's advanced ventilation package, these exhaust vents further help in quick removal of stale interior air.

Arai XC-W Unique Cheek Pad Design

Arai XC-W Unique Cheek Pad Design: Adding to its distinctive look, the XC's cheek pad design is similar to that of a full-face helmet, with its full-coverage EPS base and removable covers.

Arai XC-W Organic Shell Shape

Arai XC-W Organic Shell Shape: Follows the smooth, linear, naturally reinforcing shape of the egg – one of nature's strongest shapes. The shape “flows” better in the wind, conforming more to the head's natural shape – smaller and less bulbous – and seals better to further reduce wind noise.

Other Features:

  • New extended coverage on both sides- 1 3 /16" longer
  • Front and rear vents are taken directly from the RX-Q
  • Side Cowl exhausts complete the ventilation upgrade
  • Fully removable Dry-Cool (Reg) liner
  • Vented Neck Roll extracts more heat build up from the interior
  • Thinner side pods provide a more aerodynamic shape
  • LRS levers assist in shield removal
  • Multi Density EPS liner
  • Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards

Note: All helmets come with a clear shield
