Premium quality helmet
Had an Arai before, went to AGV and am now back with Arai. This is a classy lid. The materials for the inside are a class above the rest and the paint job is stunning. Visor system much improved over my old Arai Viper GT and the air vent systems work really well, again much better than my old Viper GT. It's also pretty quiet for a race helmet. Highly recommendedRead more
Nothing but the best would do
I wore this helmet back to back with my Quantum Joey, RX-7 and the RX-7V Kenny Roberts was far quieter and more comfortable. The vents are better controlled, the visor change has not been tested yet.Read more
Good looking but is it worth it
So I bought this helmet to go with my 60th anniversary R1, colour match is good and paint is flawless. The performance of this helmet is ok. It has a very annoying cushion on the forehead that allows the helmet to lift up while riding at speed. I have tried other Arai helmets which have a fixed cushion band and I've never had that problem before with them so make sure you try one to see how much it moves. I have a medium head and small is too small. I cured this by using some extra padding that had a little more grip than the stock cushion. It is a very light helmet but not the lightest of its category. I'm quite disappointed as it's a premium helmet. I've had an Arai SV, a Shoei XR1000 and then I moved on to a HJC RPHA10+. The SV, like this helmet, suffers wind noise, I'm guessing purely from the side pods which are a pain and make visor swaps a tedious task. I can't help thinking this helmet is just not good value for money, although beautiful looking. I feel it's no better than the HJC RPHA10 I have been using till now, which has reasonable wind noise, a simple visor system that worked well, all for a good £160. It's a tiny bit heavier. It's vents worked well. I couldn't believe the quality in comparison, I was expecting a more plush interior from the RX7V. I know this lid will last a lot longer than the HJC but at the price I could have bought a new one each year. Maybe in the event of an accident it will excel over the other helmets. I can't give any advice about that part. The construction is of course going to be better than a £160 lid and I hope if it happens this will protect my bonce.Read more

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 new Eco Pure 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 and VAS, the RX-7V is closer to the ideal helmet shape than ever.
Arai RX-7V Replica - Kenny RobertsPB SNC2 Shell - Newly developed resin creates stronger bonds between shell materials with less weight. Super Fibre and other special synthetic fibres, with superb tensile strength and flexibility characteristics, developed for F-1 helmet visor panel, assembled and bonded by Arai experts.
Rear Diffuser - New Type 12 diffusers are 20mm longer and straightened for improved aerodynamics, working together with the AirWing to improve stability. Compared to the previous Type 10 diffusers, the efficiency of the intake scoops of the new Type 12 diffusers has increased by 19%.
Eco Pure Liner - The fully removable interior liner system has been improved with new Eco Pure material, which helps maintain neutral acidity levels close to human skin and antibacterial consumption. With the aim of a softer, deeper and even more comfortable fit, Arai developed a new softer liner frame material.
VAS V MV Visor - VAS MAX Vision visor is standard to provide better visibility in all seasons and for all types of riding. Comes standard with Clear anti-fog Pinlock insert to be installed as needed. Increased field of vision thanks to a taller and wider visor, when compared to previous versions.
Visor Mechanism - VAS visor latch system captures and holds the shield more securely closed to help prevent unexpected opening. In addition to a demist function, the larger latch design allows for an intuitive and seamless operation of the shield.
