新ASTRAL-X絕不遜於其他頂級的巡航頭盔。它採用了先進的VAS技術及與RX-7X相同的外殼，但有不同的通風設計。這更圓，更光滑和更強的頭盔外殼提供了更好的'擦過''屬性。除了RX-7X，ASTRAL-X是ARAI中第二個頂級系列，其VAS (可變軸系統) 提供了更大，更光滑，更強的頭盔外殼。從很早開始，ASTRAL-X已被設計為終極全能頭盔及擁有RX-7X相同的先進技術，同時也滿足巡航騎手的需要。ASTRAL-X標準配置包括PSS面罩，是針對霧和陽光刺眼的全天候方案。
The new ASTRAL-X is nothing less than an ultimate sports-touring helmet. It features the advanced VAS technology of the also new RX-7X and even shares the same outer shell, but with different ventilation. This rounder, smoother and stronger shell offers the important ‘’glancing off’’ properties needed for superior helmet performance at real world impacts. The ASTRAL-X features as the second model in line, the VAS (Variable Axis System) visor pivot system that offers a larger smoother and stronger outer shell area.
ARAI解決了太陽眩光及面罩霧化的問題。VAS-V MV PSS結合了更容易操作，可鎖的遮陽罩及高效Pinlock鏡片。PSS提供了對太陽眩光的保護，但同時因為它是外置的，因此不會影響到頭盔殼的完整性和強度。
以往RX-7 RR5的SAI 面罩設計只有一個支點，但RX-7X新的面罩設計，具有可變軸結合移動支點。面罩支點是基於一個虛軸，通過結合面罩支點與虛軸的軌跡，即使面罩及耳蓋的安裝位置比SAI 設計低，面罩仍然能順暢地開關。耳蓋的雙功能桿同時用作鬆開耳蓋和面罩，面罩可以更快速及簡單地更換。
對比以往的設計，VAS 耳蓋現在更小及更低，使耳蓋上平均多了24毫米的寬度。外殼現在沿Snell測試線更順暢，從而增加了頭盔在撞擊時擦過物體的能力。與RX-7 RR5的外殼相比，全新VAS設計平均增加耳蓋上平滑區域的寬度達24毫米。在較大面積上有一個更圓，更光滑的外殼增加了頭盔在撞擊時擦過障礙物的能力，從而降低衝擊能量傳到騎手頭部和頸部的機會。
VAS-V MV PRO SHADE SYSTEM
Arai answer to the problem of sun glare and visor fogging. The VAS-V MV PSS offers an efficient combination of an easy to flip up, lockable sun peak, the VAS-V Max Vision visor and the efficient Pinlock inlay lens (sold seperately). PSS offers protection against sun glare, without affecting the integrity and strength of the helmet shell which could be caused by build-in sun visors.
VAS SHIELD MECHANISM
The SAI shield on the RX-7 RR5 has only a single axis pivot point but the ASTRAL-X has the new VAS mechanism with a variable axis incorporating a moving pivot point. By combining the pin trajectory, which is based on an imaginary axis, with the two trajectories of the double pivot point slot, the shield opens and closes smoothly even with the much lower shield mount position.
A dual-function lever releases both the side cover / pod and shield pin for quick and simple shield removal. Being able to see the shield mechanism allows for easier shield changes.
IMPROVED SHIELD LATCH
The VAS latch captures and securely holds the shield closed to help prevent unexpected opening. In addition to the de-mist function, the larger latch allows for intuitive and seamless shield operation.
The high-performance ventilation system of the ASTRAL-X was developed to offer all day long comfort to the rider. Large ducts and vents feature massive inlet and exhaust openings, while the large switches can be easily operated, even with thick gloves. It is this advanced ventilation system that makes the ASTRAL-X perfect for those long rides in every weather.
IMPROVED GLANCE OFF ABILITY
The VAS pivot cover is now smaller and lower than the previous design, yielding an average of 24mm more area above the cover. The shell is now smoother along the Snell test line in the temple area, thus increasing the helmet's ability to glance off objects during an impact.
Compared with the shell of the RX-7 RR5, the smooth area around the temple is increased by an average of 24mm on the new VAS model. Having a rounder, smoother shell over a larger area increases the ability of a helmet to glance off objects more easily.
Created from super fiber and special synthetic fibers, and assembled by Arai experts, the shell provides both superb tensile strength and flexibility characteristics. Like the metal bands used to hold a wooden barrel together, a variety of carefully placed materials, combined with newly developed resins result in strong shells with less weight.
The fully removable interior comfort liner has been improved and updated with Eco-Pure material, which helps maintain a neutral pH level close to the skin. In addition, the new, soft frame material is more comfortable and features removable temple padding and brand new removable/replaceable crown pad to allow for a customized fit.
