Verified Customer Reviews for Arai RX-7V Evo Race FIM
The praises of the Race FIM and the 'standard' RX-7V version of this helmet have been rightly sung across ALL these reviews, so I'll offer an alternative take.
Bought in the depths of winter during Sportsbikeshop's excellent sale, so as yet not worn on the bike (I know, another fair weather rider..)
However, I can hopefully offer some observations and guidance - some obvious, some less so between this and the 'standard' RX-7V.
It's a noticeably lighter helmet by some 50 grams.
Now that may sound pretty insignificant, but it's noticeable in your hand and when it's on your head.
The extra rear diffuser is supplied loose in the box and is a self fit item with pre-installed adhesive pads.
Unlike its sister RX-7V, the rear spoiler is not adjustable.
The Race FIM also doesn't come supplied with the standard fit breath guard of the RX-7V.
It does however come with a 2D visor with posts for tear offs.
The centre one of the three main front vents is smaller in size whereas all three on its sibling are of the same size / design.
Having tried the two helmets against one another at the same time, there's a significant difference in sizing / fit - on my head at least..
I would almost call a 'Large' RX-7V a 'Medium' by comparison - and I've worn size 'Large' Arais for the last 20+ years.
And finally, the Race FIM version looses the slightly (in my eyes) garish logo on the back, replaced by a small removable label.
Other than the above, either helmet continues the glove like luxurious fit and exemplary finish that Arai have built their well earned reputation on.
Finally, a very big thank you to the EXCEPTIONALLY helpful and friendly crew at Sportsbikeshop Bristol.
Best part of this helmet purchase was the help offered by the guys in the Bristol store when I struggled to get the right dark visor. Helmet vents very well but is a lot noisier than my XD4. Usual Arai comfort but feels a little rounder as some pressure on my forehead.
This is the first time I've bought a top tier helmet and it's totally lived up to expectations. I have owned Arai before so my expectations were high. Highlights are the quality of materials used though out and the fit and finish. The helmet is fantastically safe, comfortable and a pleasure to use. I would absolutely purchase again - and it's very easy to change the visor!
Best you can buy
I would definitely recommend using Sportsbikeshop.co.uk. They are a professional and value for money company that delivers a quality and fast service product
Brilliant helmet, top quality
Slight issue initially when I was actually sent the wrong helmet. However, the guys dealt with it amazingly and I had the replacement within 24 hours - so cannot fault the level of service.
Helmet is amazing quality as you'd expect, and the fit is perfect. Really comfortable.
Well worth the money, looks great and very comfy can't go wrong with arai.
