Arai DT-X Motorcycle Helmet Review | Entry-Level Rolex

 

Arai has been manufacturing offshore motorcycle protection equipment for more than six decades, and the DT-X is the latest in a long line of superior Arai helmets.

Since the creation of the Japanese brand, Arai has sought to maintain the highest level of protection by implementing some of the most stringent quality control standards found in the motorcycle helmet industry.

To do this, Arai adheres to its deep roots and does things in an old-fashioned way - by hand. Neither one nor two specialists personally subscribe to each Arai shell before they roll back along the pipeline so all holes are drilled, all eye ports are cut, and all graphics are checked for discrepancies along the way.
Such a high level of service, which is placed in each helmet, usually translates into a higher price in retail, and therefore there is a new Arai DT-X. However, the DT-X does not fall on the sidelines when it comes to quality and quality control, despite the more affordable price point in the Arai lineup.

Arai offers helmets in three standard oval forms - Signet-X (Long Oval), Quantum-X (Round Oval) and race-oriented Corsair-X (intermediate oval). I find myself in a common intermediate oval group, which makes the DT-X good for me.

As always, we strongly recommend that you go to your local store and try a few helmets on your own to decide which size and shape best suits you personally. We can not tell you what your head is - it must be determined personally.

The DT-X, made of lightweight fiberglass material, has many similarities in design and appearance with other models carrying the X spotlight. Using an outer shell like the R75 Arai, similar to eggs, the DT-X is also equipped with a signaling Hyper Ridge from Arai along the bottom edge of the body to improve strength and aerodynamics, and also makes it easy to put on and remove the helmet.

The result is a motorcycle helmet that is light enough to remain comfortable for a full day ride, as well as for those who are also stable at high speed. Checking over your shoulder when changing the strip will not meet resistance, and I'm positive about aerodynamics.

A wide viewfinder provides excellent peripheral vision within the DT-X, which allows you to better understand the surrounding. Switching, touring and even tracking excursions (although not races) are within the limits of the possibilities for the DT-X.

To facilitate airflow, the Arai DT-X has 10 vents. Starting from the front, you can find one multi-position chin opening, as well as two eyebrows, both of which cope well with misting and make a pleasant trip in hot weather.

On the top of the helmet is a dual-function plastic valve. It not only lifts the air, sitting in an upright position, but also allows you to exit the air. Behind this is another vent, designed for air supply, when you are in an aggressive position. Two vent holes flank the central hole to create a low pressure so that air can pass through the helmet. The positions of air ducts and spoilers are easy to manipulate with a gloved hand.

Finally, the two lower compartments are located at the bottom. In general, I found that the air flow with DT-X is sufficient, even in the weather, which was good at digging into the 90s.

The interior of the DT-X is plush and comfortable, using antimicrobial materials so that things are not frightened. After a whole day, when he travels in a rather hot weather, most of them, breaking on the world-famous traffic in Los Angeles, was no worse for wearing.
The ear pockets are equipped with molded recesses that allow the installation of intercoms, as well as a small adjustment of the fit through the 5 mm peeling layers in a comfortable liner and cheeks. Nevertheless, the adjustment of the comfortable ruler stops there, unlike the Corsair-X, which is completely customizable to your taste - this was one way to reduce the cost of DT-X without compromising security.

As expected, the single-layer multi-layer Arai EPS liner is used for use within the DT-X, which provides additional protection by implementing different densities in the helmet areas where they are most needed during the impact.

The Parasys Shield (VAS) system, introduced a couple of years ago on the Arai Corsair-X, is found on the DT-X, which allows you to quickly change the limitless face screens as soon as you understand the system. Nevertheless, during the training process you will come off as a Neanderthal man who has just opened fire. Instead of trying to explain this, we'll just let the people of Aray show this action below. Unfortunately, the DT-X does not come with a Pinlock insert, which can be considered as another cost saving strategy.
Faceshield works smoothly and confidently fixed, without any air leakage. Locking mechanism - another new set of kit for
After a while you can accomplish this one movement - if you do not believe me, just watch the Honda Team Repsol, Dani Pedrosa.

In addition, this allows the DT-X to use the VAS Pro Shade system, which is an Arai solution for carrying several facade screens or equipping with a photochromic screen. Pro Shade also allows Arai to eliminate invasions in the EPS insert using an external visor solution. The cuts in the EPS liner and the shell compromise the structural integrity of the helmet, and this contradicts Arai's safety philosophy first.

While this is an excellent option for passengers who can find themselves during the day and night, for example, colleague-colleague Kelly Callan-I usually stick to one screen option, because the darkened screen only partially covers your vision, making my view inconsistent, that distracts me.

Just like replacing the faceshield requires some practice, as well as manipulating the Pro Shade up and down. Having said that, I most likely will go with VAS Pro Shield, if I am on a trip, where I will ride day and night.

Perhaps the greatest success of the Arai DT-X will be for racers who wear glasses. As a rule, I have to play with my glasses to get them in a position where they will not cause pressure points. DT-X is ideal for riders who use glasses, even thick-rimmed glasses, such as mine.

Arai DT-X TestAt makes no sense during my first ten-hour day in DT-X, I got some discomfort from the helmet. This makes it all valuable to everyone who uses corrective glasses. My glasses slip into place with ease and sit only where I need them.

Noise levels for me are not a problem, because I always wear protection for the ears. However, I find the surrounding noise no more than any other top-level helmet I used. If there is an additional chin rest, the level of ambient noise has decreased by a small amount.

The Arai DT-X is a commendable part of the kit, providing excellent performance and protection at a much more affordable price than many Arai motorcycle helmets, without too much sacrifice in the name of the almighty dollar and, of course, none of which is endangered by security.

Regardless of whether you are a commuter train, weekend warrior, a touring player, or someone who participates in a random track, the Arai DT-X can handle whatever you are willing to throw at it.
