ARAI MX-V SPRINT
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.
Super Complex Laminate Construction The latest aerospace fibres, with 30% more strength in extension & bending resistance than standard fibreglass comprises the majority of the SCLC shell. While considerably more expensive than most fibreglass (and 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.
The new Top Vent provides 11% more airflow than the previous Vent. The new bigger switch makes opening and closing easier. The new Top Vent has three positions; closed, half open and fully open to adjust the airflow and prevent water intrusion when fully closed.
Open and close the chin bar vents from the inside to prevent debris coming into the helmet in dusty riding conditions.
Creates a tremendous amount of venturi vacuum at the rear. Can be easily removed (for cleaning) or replacement.
Produce low pressure behind the rear vent for better hot air extraction. Integrated into 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.
Arai´s Dry-Cool® material transfers heat and moisture away from the rider quickly and efficiently.
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.
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.
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.
Arai´s peel-away temple crown pads give the option of 5 mm more interior width* if needed.
Allows easier access to an injured rider. By pulling the orange tabs integrated into the pads, the cheek pads slide out. Making helmet removal easier for trained medical personnel and rescuers. Minimising the risk of additional injury.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The premium quality interior of any Arai helmet can be easily cleaned, in place, with mild soap and lukewarm water.
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 build one Arai helmet will take about 18 man-hours.
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.
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.
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.
Arai uses a very strong 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.
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.
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.
This Arai helmet is designed to meet the stringent Arai In-house criteria, in addition to the mandatory ECE 22-05 standard.
