Arai Corsair-X Doohan TT Helmet

Arai Corsair-X Doohan TT Helmet

Australian-born Michael “Mick” Sydney Doohan is a former professional motorcycle racer who won five consecutive 500cc World Championships (1994-1998). The first turn at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit is named after the motorcycle legend. Now the Corsair-X is available in a brand new Doohan graphic: the Arai Corsair-X Doohan TT Helmet.

Arai Corsair-X Doohan TT Helmet: Construction

The new PB SNC2 Shell of the Corsair-X is much lighter. In fact, it is 30% lighter than the Corsair-V. This is greatly attributed to the synthetic fibers and special resin formula that Arai has developed. Arai has not abandoned their special R75 shell shape, however. A lightweight, aerodynamic, and protective helmet is very sought after by racers, and Arai certainly has delivered.

Ventilation

One of the biggest changes with this helmet is the upgraded ventilation system. The top/center vent allows around 11% more airflow than the Corsair-V did. All of the vents on the new Corsair-X are easier to adjust with gloves, as well as more durable and longer.

Another significant change is the new “Variable Axis System” (VAS). The VAS has a variable axis (moving pivot point) allowing the shield to open and close, even with the 24mm lower shield mount position.

Interior

The interior of the Corsair-X not only provides protection and comfort but also does a great job keeping you cool. The plush lining in combination with the ventilation system wicks sweat away and helps keep you a comfortable temperature. The interior is made of Eco Pure material, which helps maintain neutral acidity levels close to the human skin and antibacterial consumption.

5mm peel away ear pockets on the Corsair-X allow riders room for a communication system. Per customers’ requests, Arai lowered the chin bar by 3mm for extra comfort (great for riders that use a microphone) and upgraded the chin curtain and neck roll to help block out unwanted noise and help improve ventilation.

The Corsair-X comes with a VAS V MV Shield, which is a clear anti-fog Pinlock shield. There are several tinted shield options available for purchase as well.

The Arai Corsair-X is both 2015 Snell and DOT certified.
