The Arai Corsair V RC shares its method of carbon fiber shell construction with the $5,095 GP-6 RC Formula One car racing helmet. That means, like the GP-6, it takes 22 man hours to make a single helmet. With a shape and vents modeled after the Arai Corsair V and, presumably, a much lighter weight, the RC would become, in our opinion, the most desirable bike helmet on the market, if Arai decides to produce it. An Arai representative suggested to Superbike that production is unlikely, stating "to get these helmets perfect/to Arai's very high standards, the rate of rejects will be high (and expensive)." No further info is currently available on the RC, but it is on display at England's NEC bike show.
