The Quantum X has a lot to live up to given the reputation which follows the long time classic RX-Q. Luckily, Arai is not one to skimp and has again improved upon a helmet which has lived on the top tier for many years. The Quantum X helmet brings back the widely loved fit of the RX-Q, which features a balanced shape with a little extra room on the sides, making it a great fit for those with a slightly more round headshape. If you have a more intermediate oval headshape, you can simply install a Corsair X head liner to convert the Quantum X into a slightly longer fit.
VAS Shield System:
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 the RX-Q.
VAS Shield Latch System:
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 new Peripherally Belted - Super Complex Laminate Construction shell design combines multiple materials and techniques created internally by Arai that deliver both performance and affordability.
Arai's Proprietary Liner:
The fully removable interior liner system is made from Arai's proprietary 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.
