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.
The RAM-X has Arai's Intermediate Oval (IO) interior fit shape.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Meets or exceeds SNELL and DOT standards.
Notes: Ships with a Clear faceshield. 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.
1. Measure your head size. To do this, pass a tape measure horizontally around your head at a height of about one inch above your eye brows. When done properly, you will have measured the largest part of your head.
2. Check your measurement with the helmet sizing chart and select the closest size. As the helmet may not always meet your head size exactly, and your head measurement may fall between two sizes, first try the smaller size.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR HELMET
1. Expand the helmet opening by pulling outwards on each chinstrap, and slide your head into the helmet. If you are unfamiliar with helmets you may be reluctant to pull the helmet down, as it may feel too tight. Even if the helmet is difficult to put on, please use the smallest helmet possible. The helmet should feel snug. If the helmet is not tight, it is too big for you. New helmets will break in and loosen slightly over time.
2. Once the helmet is on:
Check that the helmet inner lining fits snugly all around your head.
Check that the top pad presses on the top of your head.
Check that the cheek pads press up against your cheeks. When you open and close your mouth, you should drag your teeth along the inside of your cheeks.
Check to make sure that you cannot easily slide your finger into the helmet along the side of your temple.
Hold the helmet with one hand on each side. Without moving your head, try to move the helmet up and down, and side to side. You should feel the skin of your head and face being pulled as you try to move the helmet. If you can move the helmet around easily, it is too big. Try a smaller size. Please note that during this check, the chinstraps should be properly fastened.
