Arai QV-Pro Carve, integral helmet

Article No.: 11054172

QV-Pro: Optimized ventilation

The high-performance ventila­tion system of the QV-PRO was developed to offer all day long comfort to the rider. Large ducts and vents feature massive inlet and exhaust openings, while the large switches can be easily operated, even with thick gloves. It is this advanced ventilation system that makes the QV-PRO perfect for those long rides in every weather.

Shell Construction PB-CLC

Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate Construction Arai’s proprietary (super fibre belt) Peripheral Belt, borrowed from our F-1 technology, greatly increases shell strength and flexibility while maintaining low weight and a lower centre of gravity. Positioned across the top of the eye port, this band contributes to the use of a thinner EPS liner which greatly enhances the upward field of view. A specially designed “mechanically expanded fibre mat”, sandwiched between the inner and outer layers of Arai’s proprietary Super Fibre Laminates, is used to reinforce and bond these two Super Fibre layers without adding significant weight to the helmet.

Variable Axis System (VAS)

With VAS, the visor mounting position is lowered, yielding an average of an additional 24mm across both temple areas, in pursuit of the ideal smoother shape that increases the ability of glancing off energy. As a result, this has made it possible for more of the shell to be smoother along and above the test line of the Snell standard.

Ventilation: Free Flow System (FFS)

Creates airflow under the helmet that reduces wind noise and turbulence while increasing the exhaust of hot air.

Front Ventilation: Dual intake

Designed for increased airflow and lower noise level, guiding fresh, cool air into the interior.

Front Ventilation: Brow vents extended to temple area

Fresh air can enter directly to the forehead area without the need for holes in this critical area of the shell and impact absorbing liner. For specific models the ventilation is extended to the temple area.

Front Ventilation: Three position chin vent

Three-position chin vent helps in demisting the visor and offering fresh, cool air to the rider.

Rear Ventilation: Neck exhaust vent

To enhance hot-air extraction from the interior. Increases the ventilation effect at the lower part of the helmet.

Rear Ventilation: One-piece rear exhaust

Extracts more hot air from the helmets interior and improves aerodynamics.

Aerodynamics: Pull Down Chin Spoiler

Helps minimize wind noise and also aids with the extraction of hot air from the face area. Provides additional deflection of road debris away from neck. Depending on the model the Chin Spoiler is retractable.

Visor: VAS Max Vision Visor with De-Mist option

VAS MAX Vision shield is standard to provide better visibility in all seasons and for all types of riding. Comes standard with Clear anti-fog Pinlock insert to be installed as needed.

Visor: New shield latch system

Borrowed from our F1 helmet, completely modified 3D moving new shield latch mechanism secures the shield like never before, but operates smoothly with an intuitive fluid – one finger operation – even with gloves.

Visor: PRO Shade System

Arai answer to the problem of sun glare and visor fogging. The PSS offers an efficient combination of an easy to flip up, lockable sun peak, the Max Vision visor and the efficient Pinlock inlay lens. PSS offers protection against sun glare, without effecting the integrity and strength of the helmet shell which could be caused by build-in sun visors. Available for both VAS and SAI visor system.

Visor: Pinlock insert lens included

Effectively prevents misting and fogging of the visor, even under extreme wet and damp conditions. May be cleaned and changed easily.

Interior: Antimicrobial Liner

New exclusive liner with antimicrobial stays fresher between cleanings.
Interior: Replaceable Cheek pads/Ear cups
Depending on the model, cheek pads, ear cups or the complete interior may be easily removed. All parts (replaceable or not) can be cleaned with lukewarm water and mild soap. Rinse well after cleaning and never dry in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Interior parts in different size thickness are available for a custom fit for every rider.

Interior: Replaceable Interior

Depending on the model, cheek pads, ear cups or the complete interior may be easily removed. All parts (replaceable or not) can be cleaned with lukewarm water and mild soap. Rinse well after cleaning and never dry in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Interior parts in different size thickness are available for a custom fit for every rider.

Interior: Replaceable Neckroll

Depending on the model, cheek pads, ear cups or the complete interior may be easily removed. All parts (replaceable or not) can be cleaned with lukewarm water and mild soap. Rinse well after cleaning and never dry in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Interior parts in different size thickness are available for a custom fit for every rider.

Interior: Facial Contour System (FCS)

To offer an even better snug fit and enhancing the comfort to the lower jaw, the Facial Contour System (FCS) works with a foam spring support in the cheek pad that compresses and rebounds, providing the necessary support without excessive pressure.

Interior: 5mm ’’Peel Away’’ Ear cups/Cheek pads

Giving even more ability to craft the perfect fit and comfort, the cheek pads now feature a 5 mm peel away layer for added room if needed.

Interior: 5mm ’’Peel Away’’ Temple pad

Arai´s peel-away temple crown pads give the option of 5 mm more interior with* if needed.

Interior: Thin centre pad for more room in front area

The result is more room around the nose and mouth area enhancing the famous Arai fit and comfort even more.

Comfort: Emergency Release System (ERS)

Allows easier access to an injured rider. By pulling the orange tabs integrated in the pads, the cheek pads slide out. Making helmet removal easier for trained medical personnel and rescuers. Minimising the risk of additional injury.

Comfort: Breath guard

Works in conjunction with the dual-pivot® chin vent to better direct fresh air to the inside surface of the shield while at the same time directing hot breath down and away from the inside surface of the shield.

Comfort: Chin Curtain

Attached to the bottom of the helmet, the new chin curtain helps to further accentuate the Egg-shape form. The curtain simultaneously blocks air intrusion from turbulent air below and increases negative pressure to enhance the exhaust function of FFS by drawing more air from the mouth area. The improved airflow reduces noise even further.

Approval: ECE 22-05

The most common helmet certification internationally, required by over 50 countries worldwide.

Five times inspected

Each Arai helmet goes through five separate quality-control depart­ments: after the shell is made, after painting and graphic completion, after assembly and two in-process inspections.

Washable interior

The premium quality interior of any Arai helmet can be easily cleaned, in place, with mild soap and lukewarm water.

Handmade

It can take up to five years for our experts to earn the right to create an Arai shell. Each shell can take up to 27 steps and to build one Arai helmet will take about 18 man-hours.

All-day comfort

All-day comfort with the Arai interior fit and shape together with the finest liner materials and the extensive ventilation system. And thanks to the perfect balance and weight distribution of the helmet, you hardly notice you are wearing an Arai.

Penetration tested

All Arai helmets are penetration tested, although not required by European helmet standards. The Arai penetration test is performed with a 3kg test cone that strikes from a height of 3m on the helmet.

Double-D ring device

The flat and D-shaped rings fit smooth against the chin. No moving parts, no corrosion problems and just pulling the tab is enough to loosen the fastener.

Smooth shape, better protection

The smooth outer shell of Arai helmets is designed to glide without unnecessary resistance. You don’t want to decelerate your helmet more than necessary. That’s why all Arai vents and ducts are designed to break off during an impact.

Hard outer shell, soft inner shell

Arai uses a very hard outer shell to spread impact forces and a soft inner shell to absorb remaining energy. The multiple-density EPS inner shell is made using a unique technology of combining three to five densities in various areas as a single component.

5-year limited warranty

All Arai helmets are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship, and are serviceable only for the properly fitted first user for 5 years from date of first use, but no more than 7 years from date of manufacture.

Different outer shells

Unlike many other manufacturers Arai provides one size outer shell for each two-helmet sizes for most models. Together with different shaped outer shells for different models it is almost impossible not to find the fit you are looking for.

Arai In-house test

This Arai helmet is designed to meet the stringent Arai In-house standard requirements, in addition to mandatory standards such as ECE 22-05 and voluntary standards such as SNELL M2010.

This helmet comes standard with a clear visor.
