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.
In fact, it would be even better if there was a Sunax “Super Max” Sunshield that was even wider and taller. The CT-Z could use it!
But in the meantime, we have at least confirmed that the standard Max Sunshield will fit.
The Sunax Sunshield is a unique device that helps block annoying sun glare.
The Sunax Max Sunshield for Arai helmets will fit the new Arai CT-Z and our suggestion to Arai is to include one in the box.
But until that happens (don’t hold your breath!), you’ll have to buy your own. No problem, because the Sunshield can be moved from helmet to helmet.
