The DT-X (DownTown-X) might be considered an entry level model due to it's price point, but with more of the details and features normally reserved for the upper models, it can easily hold it's own against the Signet-X & Quantum-X. Sharing the same Intermediate Oval (I/O) interior shape as the Corsair-X, the DT-X also boasts features like the PB-cLc (Peripheral Belt - complex Laminate construction) shell, VAS shield system, Anti-Microbial interior liner material and 10 ventilation ports (comparable to both the Signet-X & Quantum-X) with the new top Dual-Flow vent design for improved intake and exhaust effectiveness regardless of head position. The DT-X is another example of Arai's commitment to deliver more value to their customers, value that delivers performance year after year.
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.
ANTIMICROBIAL INTERIOR MATERIAL: The DT-X interior is made with an odor-reducing and dirt-resisting antimicrobial material, that helps keep ph levels balanced, helping the helmet stay fresher longer inbetween cleanings.
5MM PEEL AWAY TEMPLE PADS: External temple pads are desgined to be removed, if you find just a little too much pressure on your temples. Subtle fine tuning like this can make all the difference in even just a short ride.
5MM PEEL-AWAY CHEEK PAD: The FCS cheek pad makes putting on and removing the helmet easier while maintaining comfort around the lower jaw, and have 5mm peel-away layers for custom microfitting. The ear pockets have molded recesses for easier intercom speaker installation.
VAS SHIELD SYSTEM: Shield mounting utilizes the Variable Axis System (VAS) pivot mechanism. The VAS pivot cover is smaller and lower than the previous design, yielding an average 24mm more area above the cover. As a result the shell is now smoother in the temple area, increasing the helmet's ability to glance off objects during an impact.
PB-CLC SHELL: Featuring the PB-cLc (Peripheral Belt - complex Laminate construction) derived from Arai“s exclusive F-1 helmet technology, made from the layering of various proprietary materials, bonded with specially-developed resins. The upper edge of the eye port is reinforced with the Peripheral Belt, woven in house using proprietary Super Fibers, to increase strength and help redirect impact energy laterally.
NEW "Z" RESIN: In shell creation, resin serves to bind material to material. Arai has long developed exclusive resins to create stronger and lighter shells, and has recently developed a new Z Mixture' resin. It increases the adhesion ability and strengthens the shell with less resin used, allowing for further weight reduction of the helmet.
DUAL FLOW VENTILATION SYSTEM: The upper front vent is Arai“s newest design, incorporating both an intake and exhaust port, creating a "dual flow" effect and is therefore aptly named the Dual Flow Duct. Air enters the front intake of the duct and draws out hot exhaust air from the rear. Toward the back, the newly styled rear Duct Flow Spoiler also incorporates a dual flow system for great airflow. The center duct hole takes in air and uses the low pressure from the left and right duct slots to draw out hot air. This new ventilation system works well in many riding positions, allowing the front and rear vents to let cool air enter from the front regardless of the rider“s head angle.
COMPACT PERFORMANCE: Keeping with the Round & Smooth egg-shaped form, the Hyper Ridge, along the lower edge of the shell increases shell strength & protection around the bottom opening - managing energy migration laterally. And the new side exhaust vents, sculpted into the Hyper Ridge design, result in a more efficient and smoother airflow. The DT-X utilizes Arai“s proprietary multi-density one-piece EPS liner, specifically tuned to each area of the helmet, to maximize performance. Shell shape & strength, combined with the tuned EPS liner, minimizes helmet size & weight - improving rider comfort.
Note: Fluorescent and/or bright finishes used in certain Arai helmets are not covered by warranty and may fade with the passage of time and exposure to the elements.
