 Arai Corsair V Nicky 3 Stars Helmet
Arai Corsair V Nicky 3 Stars Helmet
Arai Corsair V Nicky 3 Stars Helmet The new Arai Corsair V Nicky 3 Stars Helmet proves again that Arais main focus is the experienced rider who knows what a real helmet should do and have. It doesnt fling fashion at you it advanced the art of building better helmets for riders. Its improvements and innovations reach down to the smallest details. Why Partly obsession. Partly because Arai believes every part of a helmet is interrelated in both design and function. We dont believe in change for the sake of change, fad, or marketing shock value. Features Newly designed shell with Hyper-Ridge around the bottom enhances shell strength while providing a larger bottom opening Larger bottom opening promotes ease of putting on and taking off the helmet Peripheral belting across the forehead area of the shell enhances structural integrity while maintaining flexibility, low weight and shell size Larger upper vent tabs make operating the vents easier even with thick winter gloves New Arai SAI shield with Super AdSis shield system New SAI shield is 5mm longer in each side and provides a wider field of view New SAI shield and base plates are exclusive to Corsair V helmets Latest generation of Dry Cool line has a new silver-grey color Rear mounting straps are slightly re-positioned exclusively to the Corsair V Neckroll is removable and has additional exhaust channels to remove interior heat Cheek pads have the exclusive Emergency Release Tab feature Newly designed side exhaust cowls exhaust heat as well as add lateral stability at speed Enhanced air inlets of the new DF-9 diffuser increase airflow efficiency Brow vents now duct air into the temple area and out the side vents for maximum cooling Exclusive AirWing provides unprecedented aerodynamic performance with 5 distinct positions DOT approved Snell M2010 Certified

I upgraded to this from the Arai Vector because I was looking for a helmet with some more features and more air flow as I heat up pretty quick. This helmet has way more airflow compared to my Vector 1, and the fully removable liner is great to keep the helmet smelling fresh. The corsair V weighs approximately 3/4 of the Vector 1 for the added comfort.
The Nicky 3 stars style is great and unique with its matte finish. I constantly get compliments on my helmet where ever I go. However, the matte finish does require a bit more TLC to keep it clean

For me, I'd rather wear a full leather jacket than go squid on the road. But after buying this jacket, I no longer have to suffer in my own sweat. This jacket has great airflow through the front, and the arms, I don't really notice the back but i'm wearing a back protector. This jacket is very light weight and it comes with a windproof liner that goes all the way into the sleeves as well. The liner is also very light weight and you can fold it up and stick it in one of the pockets.
I got the white/red version and I have already started to notice the white areas getting dirty after about a month of use, but its expected.
This is a great jacket and I've gotten quite a few compliments on the look of the jacket.

I got this product mainly because I was looking for a reflective mirror finish visor for my corsair v. This one matched my helmet the best and I couldn't be happier. As it is OEM, it fits perfectly and the vision is great. The tint is at a perfect level where I am not blinded on bright sunny days, and when it gets dark I can still see quite well compared to dark smoke visors.
The only issue I have is that I can slightly see my own reflection on the inside, but I got used to that.
