Arai presents the new top-of-the-range RX-7V Evo sports full-face helmet.
Handmade in Japan by a family-run company run by three generations of motorcycle enthusiasts, it embodies the ultimate in Arai know-how in terms of protection, ventilation, comfort and fit.
Already the previous one represented the maximum of today's knowledge and technology of Arai. But then, where the new "Evo" has improved further.
First of all in the homologation, now ECE R22-06, (it requires a more stringent test process than the previous ECE R22-05 approval and provides more impact points, as well as an oblique test to measure the rotation of the helmet), the ventilation is even more advanced thanks to the improvements of the internal ducts, the ergonomics of the pillows is improved by a possible impact.
Precisely for this last reason Arai produces outer shells the most rounded, smooth and resistant possible to improve the ability of the helmet to slip and divert energy. This, together with the inner shell with different densities in a single piece, represents a unique feature and the heart of Arai's philosophy.
Then we find all the features that have made the RX-7V a successful helmet, such as the VAS system for closing the visor (Variable Axis System the visor does not pivot on a fixed point, but to move it follows an obligatory path), the locking system derived from the one used in Formula 1, the completely removable interiors made of antibacterial and hypoallergenic material and the double ring closure.
