Arai Quantum Helmet - Product Details
The brand new 2010 Arai Quantum helmet. Purpose-built to be "The Ultimate Street Helmet." A new benchmark in comfort, quiet, stability and vantilation in a street Motorcycle helmet. The helmet you'd build if you wanted to treat yourself to a dream. Every feature optimised for the conditions, speeds and environment of the real world. A Motorcycle helmet for others' top-of-the-line models to envy.
Specially created to be a cut above the others - even Arai's own. It's not a new street helmet by default, as in we need a new street helmet. It's a new street helmet by design, as in we need something nobody has ever done before. Arai applied the same tireless 24-7 focus usually reserved for race Motorcycle helmets to designing it. Refining and adapting proven concepts to a new purpose. As a result, the new Arai Quantum is aimed at the experience street rider. One who can readily feel and appreciate the difference built into this amazing new Arai helmet, who reels off mega-miles no mater which way the road bends, and on every kind of bike.
Extremely wide peripheral view for better visabilty and awareness of the world around you. The Arai Quantum uses the same wider-eyeport SAI faceshields as the RX7 GP, 5mm wider on each side.
The Quantums small, more aerodynamic, hand-formed natural shell shape and size aids stability and stillness - not only in straight-line wind tunnel stability, but it also minimises the negative aerodynamic effect when turning your head to check traffic or in a cross wind. And it looks better on your head than other bigger, rounder balloon-style shell designs on the market.
Advanced ventilation combines more efficiency with even less interior noise, Arai's ability to further refine proven designs to increase helmet performance proves that you don't have to reinvent the wheel to make substantial improvements. The vents have been refined to be extremely efficient, flowing huge volumes of air through the interior to improve ventilation at road speeds. Not a lot of vent holes - just the right ones, in the right size, in the right place.
A uniquely-designed lower Hyper-Ridge circles the shell bottom to improve strength and aerodynamics. It's design lowers the centre-of-gravity for an exceptionally light feeling on your head, and provides a larger bottom opening for an easier on-off without enlarging the helmet.
The Arai Quantum has both a removable neck roll and Arai's (now copied) innovation, the Emergency Cheek Pad removal System. Both come directly from its RX7 GP "big brother."
Brand new, one piece bottom edge trim, gives an incredibly clean look by eliminating the need for seams. Another example of Arai's attention to the smallest details, bourne of Mr Arai's belief: There is no unimportant part of an Arai helmet.
Even more comfort, the Quantum's truly unique, newly sculpted cheekpad shape cradles the head from underneath for a level of comfort and security that needs to be felt to be believed. With more surface area, it moves away from the typical "pressure fit" to a more "comfiort fit" based on the design's "cradle" support. The design was influenced by Arai's F-1 drivers, the most demanding of all for fit. Very, Very quiet. Mostly owed to the new chhekpad design. The newly sculptured lower portion of the cheek pad better cradles the jaw, blocking more noise entering the helmet from underneath - the major source of helmet noose - by creating a better noise seal. This, combined with new sound-deadening foam in the ear pocket gives you an extremely quiet.
New more aerodynamic upper and side exhaust vent cowling, sculptured to enhance stability while increasing exhaust efficiency. The side vent cowls are tailored to the needs and speeds of the street. Compared to the CV. the Arai Quantum's cowlings are larger and more aggressively styled, as lower street speeds require more surface area and a more refined shaping in order to deliver the increased stability . High speed performance is also excellent.
Arai's exceptional handmade craftsmanship, amde to a higher standard of protection, comfort and quality that's difficult to put a "price" on.
True to Arai's successful generations-long philiosophy of evolution rather than revolution, the complexity and sophistication of the Quantum design is hidden in the simplicity of its execution. It's typical "Arai look" belies the considerable performance this helmet delivers forthe street rider. (The "look" is purpose-driven by Arai's belief that you can make changes to a helmet shell as long as you never forget it's primary function: impact energy management; thereby leading to the use of more natural, smoother surfaces without exaggerated ridges or protrusuions that may look impressive, but that in a crash could possibly have an adverse effect on the helmet's main job - manage impact energy.)
Testing feedback has centred on how light the Quantum feels in your hands - and even lighter on your head. Peripheral vision , comfort and stability seem to be immediatley recognisable, and a new level of quiet that impresses everybody who experiences it, proving that this helmet needs to be ridden in to fully appreciate the features that make it stand out among its competition.
The faceshield Brow Vents, like those of the RX7 GP, redirect incoming air to the temples instead of the forehead, and around the ear area (missed by many helmet ventilation systems). The stale air is then extracted out the side exhaust cowls. The airflow over the temple artery reportedly also helps cool the blood flow to the brain area. This simple re-purposing of two existing vent features greatly improves helmet performance and rider comfort.
Arai Quantum Helmet - Size Guide
How To Measure Your Head
Your safety is to important to simply guess your size. Before trying on any helmets you need to make sure you know your exact head size.
Measure around your head just above the ears and take a measurement at the forehead. This measurement is a good starting point and will correspond with a particular brand's size (always bear in mind a medium in one brand may be different to medium in another).
Getting the right fit is paramount, so don't be tempted to go for another size if your dream helmet is out of stock.
