The original Arai SZ open face sport helmet was born in 1988. Now 30 years later the RAM-X comes with the VAS-Z Pro Shade System shield pursuing protection in an evolutionary form that strives for glancing off. The open face that evolves everything: ventilation, interior, liner, and shell, bringing even more comfort as a touring model. The new Ram-X raises the bar for the next generation of protection.
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.
So for more than three decades, Arai has pioneered different shapes - and even different proportions within those shapes - in our various helmet models, working to offer a better fit for more people.
Completely Redesigned Shell And Shield System:The RAM-X features the newly developed VAS-Z shield system, with a lower pivot point that allows the shell to be smoother in the temple area improving the helmet's ability to slide more smoothly should it contact the ground or obstacles, contributing to gains in protection. This lower pivot position is possible due to the dual-pivot assembly, creating a “Variable Axis System” for which the system was named, allowing the shield to function where a single pivot could not.
High-tech, One-piece, Multi-density Liner Inside:A fundamental Arai feature has always been the One-Piece, Multi-Density Liner. Molding all of the EPS densities into a one-piece EPS liner allows the various densities to work together during an impact. This allows Arai to make a thinner and softer EPS liner for a smaller overall helmet.
Ventilation: Utilizing the same diffusers as Arai's flagship Corsair-X model, with a revised stationary aero stabilizer wing to improve helmet stability and further reduce rider fatigue.
Lighter: Weight reduction was achieved by decades of continual strengthening of the shell and a newly developed Z-compound resin combining multiple resins into one.
Pro Shade System: Up, down or in the middle the new shield system adapts to many light conditions without sacrificing helmet impact absorption performance. The Pro Shade's unique design lets air pass through even at high speed.
Glasses Compatible: Removable foam in the top of the earcup allows the arms of glasses to easily slide into the helmet. The earcups are easy to remove from the helmet and have removable covers for easy washing and access to this removable part.
Vas-z Pinlock: The Ram-X comes with the VAS-Z shield that accepts the new VAS-Z Pinlock lens. The new Pinlock-120 lens comes with the helmet in the box and ready to install. The Pinlock-120 is Pinlock's fog resistant lens meant for the most extreme weather conditions.
