Arai Regent-X Motorcycle Helmet First Look: Evolutionary Design

Arai Regent-X First Look

The new Arai Regent-X helmet is designed with creature comforts in mind, while still delivering the protection that motorcycle riders expect from Arai. In addition to having a new interior, the Regent-X also has a new outer shell. According to Arai, the new Regent-X has protection on par with the race-ready Corsair-X and sports Snell M2020 certification.

To make the helmet better suited for everyday riding, Arai has made a small change in the shape of the shell to make it easier to don and remove the Regent-X. A five-millimeter adjustment in the jawline is claimed to get the job done.

Arai gave the helmet a new interior. The Regent-X has the latest iteration of the Arai Facial Contour System. According to Arai, the cheek pads articulate up and down as you put on and take off the helmet.

Once on, the pads wrap around your face. Further, there is a new neck roll design that reduces weight. This results in a quieter helmet with a snug, secure feel. As before, the cheek pads are adjustable and come in multiple sizes for a personalized fit. The lid has an Intermediate Oval fit.

Rather than a revolutionary new helmet, the Arai Regent-X follows the Japanese company’s tradition of carefully considered change. It retains the shape that Arai says reduces the likelihood of brain injury, and the multi-density liner is still a one-piece design.

You have a bit of time to save up for the new Arai, as it won’t be hitting the dealer shelves until December.
