This year the maker of Arai helmets offered something very special in the 2012 Arai catalog—a $4000 made-to-order carbon fiber helmet called Arai Corsair V RC. Its price takes it to the #1 spot on the list of the most expensive motorcycle helmets designed for the consumer market.
What makes it so special? First, it takes a skilled Arai craftsman an entire day to make just one shell. The shell is made of 11 layers of premium carbon fiber found on the newest generation of commercial airliners. The materials make it the most lightweight Arai helmet at this protection standard. Arai Corsair V RC has the technology of Arai GP-6RC helmets used by Formula 1 drivers. Keep in mind that this is a made-to-order product and it will take about 4 to 7 weeks for delivery.
