I'm a Shoei guy, but I am going to go try one of these on if I can find one and might give it a go. I was set on an AGV, but am second guessing that now.

EDIT: Which model Arai is this? I won't be able to find the Ducati version locally so will have to try on a regular one and then order it if I like it.

I like Shoei ever since my GRV days but this latest rf1100 I hate. only had it for a year and the pads wont stay in and Shoei letters coming off. I like my Scorpion better than that RF1100. very dissapointed

im fighting getting a scorpion. for whatever reason i want one. i think the gimmicks hooked me. inflatable cheek pads . military style drop down dark screen. pretty cool graphics anti fog shield (everyone says that and they all fog). The reason i didnt get a scorpion is simple its on sale for 299. but its like a 400 helmet i got the bell star carbon which was a 700 helmet for 329. i have 3 helmets 1 head so i am fighting getting another one.

The Scorpion is heavy with all the systems in it. The fog free shield does work though
Thanks from mark419ny

Thanks. I'll try a Corsair V and if it works out maybe I'll order one of these.

This of cause means that I can and will have a skillful artist put a logo on it - especially for track use and above the DOT label for road use. It is what it is, the helmet still looks the same as in the picture I posted.

I believe it is the helmet that some professional GP riders wear and it is the only pure carbon helmet out there other than the stock Arai Carbon helmet (source: Revzilla review, Ducati and Arai). There are not many of them available and I have been advised that the ones that have been produced are also used by folks intending to participate in the Isle of Man TT.

I should have it shortly and as I said if folks are interested in pictures and a review then I will share.
Hope you never have to put it to the test! Forget about the hospital bills! Id ride and leave it in a glass case at home.

I recently ordered the cash up front, no-return Arai Ducati Corse RXV Carbon Helmet. It has a 2 month lead time and due to DOT regulations in the USA I am not permitted to have the custom names, logo, etc put on the back. This will be my first Arai and based on what I heard it should be a very good helmet.
Nice one. I actually looked at Arai corsair V carbon and it's sweet. You will enjoy the Arai Cosair V (Arai Ducati Corse RXV Carbon) . I only use my Cosair V on the track because I dont want it to get dinged around. It has great air flow, very stable at high speeds and while doing head checks I don't find myself fighting the wind. I have the NEXX XR1R Carbon very good and light that I ride in the streets but I find myself grabbing my Cosair V more often now. I just might have to by another Cosair V.
