New Graphics Keep the Corsair Looking Fresh Arai recently announced a new set of graphics for its popular Corsair-X full-face helmet. The Corsair-X is one of the best helmets out there, but it has been out for a while now and Arai has to keep it looking fresh. Its most recent effort to do so …

Some Quality Lids for Less Arai, as we all know, is one of the leaders in the top-of-the-line motorcycle helmet market.

The company is cleaning house so …

An Improvement Over Previous Lids The Arai Corsair-X model was a very fine helmet. It was a top-of-the-line-lid, but now Arai has a new model. The Regent-X. Built using many of the same ideas as the Corsair-X and offering the same protection, the Regent-X takes things up a notch. The Regent-X is also much less …

More New Arai Helmets Is Never a Bad Thing We like to think of ourselves as well-educated motorcyclists here at Web Bike World, and part of that is keeping up on the latest gear from major manufacturers.
