Arai Pro Shade System for SAI-Compatible Helmets Nowadays it is quite common to use a retractable sun-visor that is situated between the helmets outer- and inner shell to protect against sun glare. However, it is Arais opinion that this construction could affect the performance of a helmet during impact. As the Pro Shade System is completely mounted on the outside of the helmet, it will not in any way negatively affect the performance of the helmet. The Pro Shade System is a small peak that is locked in position. Unlocking is easy just pull the Pro Shade System forward, then it can be flipped down with a flick of the hand to act as an effective sun-visor. The Pro Shade System is the complete all-weather system for serious touring riders, offering protection against sun glare, fogging and misting, especially for riders that prefer an upright seating position and/or the comfort of a fairing, the Pro Shade System will enhance the riders comfort significantly. Features Fits all Arai SAI full-face helmets including the Arai Corsair V, Vector 2, RX-Q, Arai Signet-Q and Defiant Complete system, pre-mounted on clear Arai MAX Vision visor (included) Compatible with Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Inserts With Brow Vents (sold separately) Enhanced aerodynamics Increased helmet stability Removable for easy cleaning No contact with visor no scratching

Great product for someone who wears corrective glasses, and for someone who hates to have to lug around an extra visor.

Let me start off by saying that I wear glasses with corrective lenses; having transition lenses or wearing sunglasses has too many shortcomings. I was looking for an alternative; which I have owned smoked shields in the past, so I decided to try one again. I bought this shield, however I was very skeptical. I did not like the overall design and the vents in the shield look cheap. I decided to go ahead and purchase the item, the shop that I bought it from gave me a 100% satisfaction guarantee. By the way, the alternative smoke shield was only $20.00 less. I have been riding with the shield for about a month now, and it works great. I would like the visor to come down farther on the sides, but overall I do not have issues with the sun peering through and bothering me. The most notable aspects of this visor are how well the visor stays locked, with little added noise, accompanied by an overall ease of use.
Ultimately, I am pleased with my purchase and I would buy it again.

I I bought this helmet for two reasons, the quality associated with the brand name; and the design/ graphic. I love the look of this helmet, and the fit is perfect for my head-shape. The adjustable chin pads are integral. When I first got the helmet it was too tight, I adjusted the pads and now it fits great. The noise level is about as high as it was with all the helmets I have owned this far, so nothing out of the ordinary, at least not for me. Function of the vents is great as well, which is very noticeable here in FL heat. I have owned Icon, and Shoei helmets, this Arai is now my favorite.

I use this bag everyday. It holds everything that I need for work and play. It is much easeier than lugging a backpack around;It's ease of mounting/ dismounting is the number one feature with this bag. The finish of this bag is great as well and I even use this bag as my briefcase for work now, so when I am not using it on the bike I clip on the strap and use it.

I have now been using the item for a few weeks. I find the alarm to be great to alert those who might be admiring the bike a little too closely; however it is not overly sensitive. The color is a bright symbol of security, which I like as well. The ease of use is paramount. The beeping to indicate the alarm is set or being deactivated is not overwhelming, honestly not a nuisance at all it.

I bought this item beacuse I was under the impression it was waterproof. I find now that it is not. We just recently had a lot of rain and the cover, along with the bike were saturated. I was expecting the cover to repel water during a rainstorm, and it did not. Other than that this the cover is good. The fit is perfect for my Ducati Monster.
