The RX-7V is the helmet that everyone should be wearing. This piece of kit represents the summit of Arai’s knowledge, the company’s experience and their know-how in helmet technology. It now has a completely new outer shell. It comes with the revolutionary Variable Axis System (VAS) visor system and a significantly increased smoother area around the temples. Once again, the RX-7V is the new benchmark in the premium helmet segment. From the anti-microbial material liner with an even slimmer frame, to the new ducts, improved diffuser and the integrated air channels, every single piece of this helmet shows the attention to detail that is so typical of the Japanese company.
Arai has continually improved the “glancing off” performance by learning from real scenarios. Thanks to the new stronger and smoother shell and VAS, the RX-7V is closer to the ideal helmet shape than ever. With VAS, the visor mounting position is lowered 24mm in pursuit of the ideal smoother shape that increases the ability of glancing off energy. As a result, now the shell is completely smooth above the test line of the independent Snell standard. They are also available as race reps. The one pictured is the design worn by WSB champion Jonathan Rea.
