The Arai DT-X Helmet offers legendary Arai ride quality and race-bred protection to riders with an intermediate-oval-shaped head. The DT-X utilizes Arai's VAS face shield mechanism, enabling the side pod and pivot cover to be significantly reduced in size and positioned much lower on the shell. This advantage, along with the smooth shell exterior design, increases the helmet's capability to redirect energy from impact rather than having to absorb the full brunt of it all at once.
The Arai DT-X Motorcycle Helmet features an aerodynamically-designed chin curtain that helps to block noise and air intrusion from any turbulence below the lower lip of the helmet, while simultaneously increasing negative pressure to enhance the performance of exhaust ventilation. The interior lining includes Arai's signature 5mm peel away cheek and temple pads to allow fine tuning of fit, right out of the box.
Normally the shield mounting position must remain relatively high, because a lower shield pivot will not allow the shield to open or close. The VAS (Variable Axis System) has a variable axis (moving pivot point). This allows shield opening and closing even with the 24mm lower shield mount position, compared to Arai's previous generation of face shields.
VAS shield latch system captures and holds the shield closed more securely to help prevent unexpected opening. In addition to a de-mist position, the larger latch design allows for an intuitive and seamless operation of the shield.
The Peripherally Belted - Super Complex Laminate Construction shell design combines multiple materials and techniques created internally by Arai that deliver both performance and affordability.
The fully removable interior liner system is made from Eco Pure material, which helps maintain neutral acidity levels close to human skin and antibacterial consumption, as well as a softer liner material and adjustable temple padding to allow for a customized fit.
