Sunax developed a version of the Sunshield in 2011 to fit Arai helmets with their unique brow vent ports that open through the face shield. All of us have installed a Sunshield on our Arai helmets and we’ve been “happy campers” ever since.
When the Arai CT-Z (review) was announced recently, we weren’t sure if the new open-face design would be compatible with the Sunax Max Sunshield for other Arai helmets. We can now report that it does indeed fit and that’s a good thing, because this helmet really needed help.
And since the CT-Z is not currently sold in Europe, Sunax couldn’t confirm that the Max Sunshield would fit the CT-Z.
The CT-Z is a nice helmet but we found that its large, open face shield and the shape of the eye port can mean a lot of sun glare when the sun is overhead at around the 10 and 2 o’clock positions. The Sunax Max blocks some of that glare, so it’s a “must have” accessory for any CT-Z owner.
