Arai MX-V Helmet - Slash Blue
- Brands: Arai
- Product Code: Arai-MX-V-SlashBlue
- Availability: 3-10 Days
The MX-V evolved from the much loved VX-3 model. Years of experience can be found in this ultimate off road helmet. The perfect choice for MX, Enduro and Off-road use. Just as found in every Arai helmet, the basic and simple organic shell shape is based on the R75 Shape concept. The absence of exaggerated edges or protrusions on the shell is not a lack of creativity, but a commitment to maintaining the integrity of a rounder, stronger and smoother shell.
Easy to clean diffusers create a strong venture vacuum at the rear. Centre top vent for increased airflow. Under-peak air intake collects and directs cool air into the helmet. Inner chin vent shutter prevents debris coming into the helmet in dusty riding conditions. Goggle ventilation and lower side vents.
Outer Shell Construction: SCLC
Super Complex Laminate Construction The latest aerospace fibres, with 30% more strength in extension & bending resistance than standard fiberglass comprises the majority of the SCLC shell. While considerably more expensive than most fiberglass (and in fact more than many Carbon Fibre materials), this “Super Fibre” provides incredible flexibility and strength, which maximizes shell integrity. A specially designed “mechanically expanded fibre mat,” sandwiched between the inner and outer layers of Arai´s proprietary Super Fibre Laminates, is used to reinforce and bond these two Super Fibre layers without adding significant weight to the helmet.
Front Ventilation: Center top vent - intake
Designed for increased airflow and lower noise level, guiding fresh, cool air into the interior.
Front ventilation: Inner chin (bar) vent shutter
Open and close the chin bar vents from the inside to prevent debris coming into the helmet in dusty riding conditions.
Rear Ventilation: Removable three-piece rear exhaust
Creates a tremendous amount of venturi vacuum at the rear. Can be easily removed (for cleaning) or replacement.
Rear Ventilation: Side exhausts
Produce low pressure behind the rear vent for better hot air extraction. Integrated in the shell for better aerodynamics, reduce wind noise and prevent buffeting at speed. Inside, a small foam dam helps to absorb and diminish excessive noise, without reducing ventilation performance.
Interior: Dry-Cool® Liner
Arai´s Dry-Cool® material transfers heat and moisture away from the rider quickly and efficiently.
Interior: Replaceable and Washable Interior
Depending on the model, cheek pads, ear cups or the complete interior may be easily removed. All parts (replaceable or not) can be cleaned with lukewarm water and mild soap. Rinse well after cleaning and never dry in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Interior parts in different size thickness are available for a custom fit for every rider.
The premium quality interior of any Arai helmet can be easily cleaned, in place, with mild soap and lukewarm water.
Interior: Facial Contour System (FCS)
To offer an even better snug fit and enhancing the comfort to the lower jaw, the Facial Contour System (FCS) works with a foam spring support in the cheek pad that compresses and rebounds, providing the necessary support without excessive pressure.
Interior: 5mm ’’Peel Away’’ Ear cups/Cheek pads
Giving even more ability to craft the perfect fit and comfort, the cheek pads now feature a 5 mm peel away layer for added room if needed.
Interior: 5mm ’’Peel Away’’ Temple pad
Arai´s peel-away temple crown pads give the option of 5 mm more interior width* if needed.
Comfort: Emergency Release System (ERS)
Allows easier access to an injured rider. By pulling the orange tabs integrated in the pads, the cheek pads slide out. Making helmet removal easier for trained medical personnel and rescuers. Minimizing the risk of additional injury.
Comfort: Breath guard
Works in conjunction with the dual-pivot® chin vent to better direct fresh air to the inside surface of the shield while at the same time directing hot breath down and away from the inside surface of the shield.
Comfort: Dirt removal
The elongated and rounded peak helps protect the rider from mud or other objects. The flow-through vent ducts and removable rear vent cowls also allow you to remove dirt easily.
Approval: ECE 22-05
The most common helmet certification internationally, required by over 50 countries worldwide.
General: Innovative peak
The Arai peak scavenges and forces air into the forehead vent ports for cooling while at the same time using multiple relief-ports to reduce “lifting” at higher speeds.
General: Five times inspected
Each Arai helmet goes through five separate quality-control departments: after the shell is made, after painting and graphic completion, after assembly and two in-process inspections.
It can take up to five years for our experts to earn the right to create an Arai shell. Each shell can take up to 27 steps and to build one Arai helmet will take about 18 man-hours.
General: All-day comfort
All-day comfort with the Arai interior fit and shape together with the finest liner materials and the extensive ventilation system. And thanks to the perfect balance and weight distribution of the helmet, you hardly notice you are wearing an Arai.
General: Penetration tested
All Arai helmets are penetration tested, although not required by European helmet standards. The Arai penetration test is performed with a 3kg test cone that strikes from a height of 3m on the helmet.
General: Double-D ring device
The flat and D-shaped rings fit smooth against the chin. No moving parts, no corrosion problems and just pulling the tab is enough to loosen the fastener.
General: Smooth shape, better protection
The smooth outer shell of Arai helmets is designed to glide without unnecessary resistance. You don’t want to decelerate your helmet more than necessary. That’s why all Arai vents and ducts are designed to break off during an impact.
General: Strong outer shell, soft inner shell
Arai uses a very hard outer shell to spread impact forces and a soft inner shell to absorb remaining energy. The multiple-density EPS inner shell is made using a unique technology of combining three to five densities in various areas as a single component.
General: Organic shape
The organic shape of an Arai outer shell offers a more natural appearance, seals better and conforms more to the head’s natural shape for improved comfort, fit and to help minimize wind turbulence.
General: 5-year limited warranty
All Arai helmets are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship, and are serviceable only for the properly fitted first user for 5 years from date of first use, but no more than 7 years from date of manufacture.
General: Different outer shells
Unlike many other manufacturers Arai provides one size outer shell for each two-helmet sizes for most models. Together with different shaped outer shells for different models it is almost impossible not to find the fit you are looking for.
General: Arai In-house test
This Arai helmet is designed to meet the stringent Arai In-house criteria, in addition to the mandatory ECE 22-05 standard.
Our mission has always been the protection and comfort of riders. Every Arai helmet is 100 percent handmade. We don’t build Arai helmets to meet any safety standards; we build them to exceed the standards. The foundation principles of protection formulated over three generations have never been forgotten in six decades of helmet design and manufacturing.
Arai is a small, family company, driven by the same family, with the same mission, through three generations – three generations of riders. We see riders wearing our helmets, and we hope they know we made their helmets to the best of our ability, to protect and make them feel comfortable no matter how far or how long they ride. We build your helmet by hand. We each have a specific job, yet all of us know every step that goes into building it. That is how we learn there are no minor parts to an Arai helmet, and there are no minor jobs here. We build each Arai helmet as if we’re creating it for one of our own, a brother, a father, a husband, a sister. That is what makes every one of us Arai.
At Arai, safety standards like Snell or DOT are our baseline, not our goal. Standards create minimum criteria, but, while many helmet makers design their helmets to meet those minimums, “good enough” has never been good enough around here. Our standards are made for the real world, the world of distracted drivers, unpredictable situations, sharp angles – things that don’t move when you hit them. A world you can’t duplicate in a controlled, predictable testing laboratory environment.
