THE HELMET ARAI RX-7V The RX-7V represents the summit of Arai’s knowledge, experience and know-how in helmet technology. With a completely new PB-SNC² outer shell, the revolutionary VAS (“Variable Axis System”) visor system and a significant increased smoother area around the temples, the RX-7V offers the new benchmark in the premium helmet segment. From the also new anti-microbial material liner with an even slimmer frame, to the new ducts, improved diffuser and the integrated Air Channels, every part shows the attention to detail that is so typical for Arai. Arai has continually improved the “glancing off” performance by learning from real scenarios. Thanks to the new stronger and smoother shell 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.
Also used by the top Arai Riders: The new DF-X2 Diffuser for the ARAI RX-7V is now available as an accessory for all Arai RX-7V users Australia wide. Designed to improve stability and increase ventilation performance, light weight and frangible so as not to interfere with the “Glancing Off” performance of the helmet. AH105120 $69.95 RRP
