The 1980s. Undisguised motorbikes. An attitude that made you feel different from everyone else. Introducing the Concept-X. In keeping with the simple but aggressive style of the time, this helmet came from the heart of Arai's R&D department. They loved the look, but that was about it. Now the Arai engineers want an old school cool look to match their style and bikes. But they want cool with modern Arai performance.
The Concept-X's rugged simplicity is the product of imagination. But don't draw the wrong conclusions. The retro style may grab attention, but it had to pass Arai's rigorous internal tests. Consequently, beneath the aggressive look is a strong, lightweight PB e-cLc shell with a smooth and rounded shape, reinforced with Arai's proprietary peripheral belt to glide over surfaces and bounce off obstacles. The VAS-VC visor system, with its retro mechanical look, further improves visual performance by lowering the visor pivot point to maximise a smooth upper shell.
The Concept-X's slim outer shell holds a secret: Arai's internal ventilation system. Cooling air is channelled through the visor's eyebrow-level vents, passed through the comfort liner and three top vents, and out through a hidden multi-stage air duct inside the EPS liner via the negative pressure created by the combined venturi effect of the side vents and the neck vent. At the front, six mesh-covered vents can be closed to prevent fogging and opened for airflow.
