Yamaha Moto GP star rider Maverick Vinales has changed his number to number 12, so naturally he has a brand-new design by Arai. The Arai RX-7V full-face race replica motorcycle helmet represents the peak of Arai's experience and knowledge in helmet technology. The outer shell uses Arai's proprietary Peripheral Belt Complex Laminate Construction, as used in their F-1 technology, which greatly increases shell strength without adding weight to the helmet - Arai have even developed a new resin in pursuit of a lightweight but very strong shell. The shell shape itself was designed using Arai's Variable Axis System (VAR) to produce a rounder and smoother shell that gives the all-important 'glancing off' properties needed for better helmet performance in real world accidents. Ventilation is improved with new air ducts, an improved diffuser and integrated Air Channels, every section showing the attention to detail that is typical of Arai. Internally, the Arai RX-7V has a multi-density EPS inner for impact absorption and features a 5mm 'peel-away' layer on the temple crown and cheek pads for the rider to customise the perfect fit and positioning on their head. The inner eco pure liner is removable and washable and the cheek pads now have an Emergency Release System (ERS), allowing them to slide out when the orange tabs on the pads are pulled. The RX-7V has a Double D retention system, removable nose guard and chin wind protectors as you would expect from a top of the range Arai helmet. Other colourways are available.
