I've had 2 Corsairs; a Nicky Hayden "Wired" which got shelved after the dog tried to kill me and a Colin Edwards replica I still use from time to time. Arai are very high quality kit, but the Corsair is actually their racing helmet and is a bit noisy for something so spendy. On an open-pipe racer screaming at redline, wind noise means next to nothing, but on a quieter street machine, it's noticeable.

It may be a pig, but it's a pig with a rocket in it's ass!

This listing was basically free helmets just pay for shipping. A day later and the response from the vendor cleared that up. Comfort, fit, finish, and equipped with the proshade system whether racing or touring it sets the bar high. For noise abatement balaclavas of different thickness, winter/summer even while riding at PSL on the streets - as always - or even a wise choice to use often overlooked inexpensive ear plugs. The Arai Corsair X, an excellent choice for all levels of riding. Buy one today, you'll be glad you did.

I wouldn't buy a helmet from any where but a store. New and in box. One drop and that helmet will be no good to you if you ever really need it. Can't trust it. And that's something your life could depend on too. I wouldn't gamble on it.

Common kid really? You are riding a 12 right? We had zero equipment as youngsters and now as adults even with the very best equipment DO NOT PANIC. Bro, that's like rule number 1. Keep calm and ........
