ARAI ASTRAL-X Flat Black
ARAI ASTRAL-X is a touring-style helmet that’s designed perfectly for this generation of riders. It’s designed to have a low center of gravity to decrease long-term tooling wear-outs.
The ASTRAL-X comes with a smooth, rounded, yet durable shell made via special material for better shock absorption. When worn, it has a lightweight structure; plus, it has a cap body that lessens fatigue during lengthy touring rides.
ARAI ASTRAL-X Features
Optimized Comfort and Shape
The ARAI ASTRAL-X sports a slightly relaxed fit with more room along the forehead area. This is due to the built-in liner that, compared to a removable one, riders prefer because of its overall comfort. It has an adequate shape that provides users with a better fit that’s snug, compact, yet comfortable.
Unique, Striking Appearance
One of the most striking features of the ASTRAL-X is the distinct model lines that run from the helmet’s front to its rear. It gives the helmet its distinct look compared to other helmets from ARAI.
Design, Build, and Parts of the ARAI ASTRAL-X Helmet
ARAI CLC for Outer Shell
The shell of the ARAI ASTRAL-X has its own CLC or Complex Laminate Construction. It consists of materials that make the helmet strong, lightweight, and durable while sporting a naturally organic shell shape.
This shape enhances the ASTRAL-X’s ability to pass through wind easily. It reduces the pressure, making it sturdier against turbulence when riding.
The helmet also consists of a mechanically-expanded fiber mat. It’s kept between the outer and inner layers of its proprietary Super Fiber Laminates. The latter bonds and reinforces the two layers without increasing significant weight to the ARAI ASTRAL-X.
Saj Face Shield
ARAI ASTRAL-X sports the slim and sleek Saj face shield side-pods that are also present on the latest RX-7 Corsair model.
It comes with a Breath Guard design that aids fresh air from entering the shield’s surface. Simultaneously, it helps direct hot air away from the shield’s inner surface.
Also, the ARAI ASTRAL-X utilizes ARAI’s I/C-2 and DDL-2 upper vents. There’s also a larger 10mm vent hole to further optimize airflow.
Certifications and Warranties
The ARAI ASTRAL-X is JIS and Snell certified just like all other helmet models from ARAI. Aside from this, it comes with a 5-year warranty covered against defects in the helmet’s workmanship and materials.
