Arai Pro Shade Shield
- Replacing the stock shield, the Pro Shade Shield reduces excess ambient light in both the down and up positions. It consists of a clear shield and a smoke visor
- In the up position, it can reduce sudden glare with just a subtle dip of your head – so you don’t have to take your hands off the bars
As of this writing, there are two Pro Shade Systems to choose from, depending on which helmet you have. There’s one for the Corsair V, Defiant, RX-Q, Signet-Q and Vector 2 models (all helmets that use the SAI shield). There’s a different one for the Corsair X, Quantum-X and Signet-X helmets (which use the VAS-V shield). Please look at the chart below to choose the Pro Shade System that fits your helmet.
Here is a chart to help you pick the correct Pro Shade System depending on which helmet you have. If you have a Signet-Q or a Signet-X helmet, be especially careful as they DO NOT use the same Pro Shade System.
|Pro Shade Shield||Helmet Type|
|SAI||Defiant and Defiant Pro-Cruise|
|SAI||Signet-Q and Signet-Q Pro-Tour|
