Purpose-built for the street. A new benchmark in comfort, quiet, stability, and ventilation. Arai applied the same tireless 24-7 focus devoted to our race helmets to designing it, refining and adapting proven concepts to a new purpose. On the rounder end of the head shape spectrum, the Quantum series has always been the "go-to" helmet of choice. The new Quantum-X brings that shape back in a feature-rich package.
Arai is the only company offering multiple interior-fit shapes to better address the infinite variety of riders’ head shapes and sizes. No one pays more attention to the subtle variations and infinite possibilities of the human head shape than Arai. Why? Because it’s the secret to getting the best comfort and fit. And Arai is nothing short of obsessed with putting you into the best fitting, most comfortable helmet possible – because that´s who we are.
The Quantum-X has Arai's ROUND OVAL (RO) interior fit shape. Shorter front-to-back and a little wider side-to-side (as compared to Intermediate Oval).*
*A Helmet needs to be tried on in order to determine a proper fit.
VAS SHIELD SYSTEM: The Variable Axis System shield mechanism was developed to enhance the shape of the shell, but the easy to learn changing mechanism is what most people are raving about. Quick, easy and intuitive.
IMPROVED SHIELD LATCH: The VAS latch captures and securely holds the shield closed to help prevent unexpected opening. In addition to the de-mist function, the larger latch allows for intuitive and seamless shield operation.
IMPROVED GLANCE OFF ABILITY: The VAS pivot cover is now smaller and lower than the previous design, yielding an average of 24mm more area above the cover. The shell is now smoother along the Snell test line in the temple area, thus increasing the helmet’s ability to glance off objects during an impact. Compared with the shell of the Corsair-V, the smooth area around the temple is increased by an average of 24mm on the new VAS model. Having a rounder, smoother, stronger shell to improve glance off ability.
PB-SCLC: 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.
DUCT VENTILATION: In keeping with the "improve on what works" mentality at Arai, the new QVF & QVR upper ventilation ducts look familiar but offer more adjustment and better flow through performance.
CHINCOVER: The new water repellent ES Chincover comes installed on the Quantum-X. Enhancing the Egg Shape of the helmet, the cover smooths airflow, increases exhaust from the mouth area and reduces wind noise coming up from below. Good for both cold and warm weather riding and is easy to remove and reinstall as needed.
ODOR RESISTANT LINER: The odor resistant liner material on the Quantum-X resists the build-up of bacteria and as a result allows your helmet to stay fresher, longer, between cleanings.
VAS-MV PINLOCK ANTI-FOG LENS: The Quantum-X comes with the VAS-MV (Max Vision) shield that accepts the new VAS-MV Pinlock lens. The new Pinlock-120 lens comes with the helmet in the box and ready to install.
As these shoe are a little hard to find at a good price, I felt really lucky to find them at Movatik at a great price. They are really comfortable, with a lacing system that lets you dial in the perfect fit for your foot. Soles are grippy, but not sticky on smooth surfaces. Just right for an everyday walking shoe for mixed surfaces. The generous toe bumper protects the shoes and your toes from damage from rocks and other dangers. The color I ordered - chili and aluminum -goes with all sorts of dress, from jeans to canvas to hiking pants. Great shoes !
I already owned a different helmet by this company which I utilize on my E-Bike. I loved the light feel and comfort but it was more of a standard style helmet. I needed something for the early morning road bike excursions and when I saw this helmet I knew it was just what I was looking for. My other Lumos MIPS Helmet had outstanding lighting along with the shock protection for my head and this helmet made sure I would be seen. The first ride resulted in three comments by other bikers regarding the visibility and sleek look of the helmet. I had a few moments to explain the MIPS technology and I was pretty sure they were sold. I fully recommend this company and these helmets. I will never wear another brand after experiencing this quality and level of safety.
Pretty close to the old original I had. You have to put it behind your neck and pry the helmet ears apart to get it on, just like the originals. Once it’s on it fits great. It’s got a little more padding than the original and it’s more of a bubble head but it’s very well constructed.
Did a lot of research on shoes before I ended up buying these ones in particular. Looked at pearl izumi, specialized, crank brothers and giro and ended up stumbling on to these and very happy I ended up going with them. The BOA system works very well and allows the shoe to really conform to your foot in a comfortable and power efficient way. The tread on these shoes is very aggressive and does allow for good tracking in mucky conditions. I have used these to walk on ice, deep snow, mud, and sloshy gravel this winter season and have had very good traction. A little uncomfortable to walk on asphalt with these but that’s not really an issue. Highly recommended if you want a stiff shoe with good tread for traction.
I had to replace my previous Smith Vantage helmet after a full impact collision where I sailed through the air and the helmet took the beating. Fortunately, I was not injured, but the skier who hit me fractured some bones, so I was lucky. Or…..my Smith helmet saved me! This is what I think and I replaced it immediately with same top end technology from Smith. Movatik’s service was very quick and I was wearing my new helmet in days.
If you are wearing a helmet without Koroyd or MIPS technology - replace it now! Could save you from a TBI, which is very serious.
