PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: ARAI TOUR-X5 HELMET
The Arai Tour-X5 is a completely redesigned helmet, surpassing the previous top-of-the-line Arai XD-4 Tour at the top of the Arai adventure food chain.
One of the biggest changes is the visor system and its visor. The new VAS-A visor system, derived from the VAS-V system developed for the RX-7V, has been designed to maximize Glancing-Off performance, meaning more surface area to glance off impact energy whilst offering easy installation and removal of the visor and peak. The visor itself has been redesigned for increased visibility and Glancing-Off performance, and is now a Max Vision visor, so a Pinlock insert can easily be installed. The new VAS-A visor system also makes it easier to switch, without tools, to one of the other styles. You can choose between Adventure, Off-road and On-road.
Other improvements include a completely new ventilation system. The ventilation system of the Tour-X5 is the second model to feature the 3D logo duct, previously introduced on the Quantic. Complemented by the new AR Spoiler and the latest iteration of the Delta Duct, the Delta Duct 6, the Tour-X5 also features a completely new chin vent. The ventilation system of the Tour-X5 will have ample air flow to keep you cool no matter what, so don’t sweat it. Additionally, the inner vent gate can flow air to the mouth or visor for increased defogging. As with any Arai model, ventilation parts like the 3D Logo Duct, AR Spoiler and Delta Duct 6 are made to break off during an impact for maximum Glancing Off performance.
On the inside, the interior is fully removable, with an adjustable pad at the rear of the crown pad. A redesigned nose deflector will make the use of goggles easy. FCS cheek pads will give a firm fit both on- and off-road.
