Arai RX-7V 2019 Isle Of Man Limited Edition Helmet
Arai's Isle of Man TT Races Limited Edition RX-7V is the latest in the line of stunning, collectable helmets which began in 2007. Renowned designer Drudi Performance has ramped up the colour this year with fluorescent yellow set against black with the three legs of man, the famous triskelion, picked out in gunmetal on either side. Details include the TT logo on the chin bar and Isle Of Man TT Limited Edition printed on the back, set below atmospheric black and white chequers.

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 and VAS, 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 to glance off energy. As a result, this has made it possible for the shell to be completely smooth above the test line of the Snell standard.
The combined systems offer excellent and efficient ventilation. The new top duct provides 11% more airflow, with bigger switches for effortless operating. The Air Channel guides the air from the eye port area to the side ducts. The new diffuser is 20 mm longer with improved aerodynamics, and 19% larger intake scoops, both work together with the Air Wing to improve stability. The chin cover blocks air intrusion and draws more air from the mouth area.
Outer Shell Construction: PB-SNC2
Peripherally Belted Structural Net Composite Arai´s proprietary (super fibre belt) Peripheral Belt, borrowed from our F-1 technology, maximizes shell strength and flexibility while maintaining low weight. Positioned across the top of the eye port, this band allows the use of a thinner EPS liner which greatly enhances the upward field of view – especially appreciated in a full racing tuck! The Structural Net Composite adds a physical bond to the resin bond of the many layers of fibres and reinforcing materials within the shell.
Variable Axis System (VAS)
With VAS, the visor mounting position is lowered, yielding an average of an additional 24mm across both temple areas, in pursuit of the ideal smoother shape that increases the ability to glance off energy. As a result, this has made it possible for more of the shell to be smoother along and above the test line of the Snell standard.
Ventilation: Free Flow System (FFS)
Creates airflow under the helmet that reduces wind noise and turbulence while increasing the exhaust of hot air.
Ventilation: Eyeport Air channel
Enhanced air exhaust from the eye port area, pulled through dedicated air channel to side ducts, improving efficiency and reducing noise.
Front Ventilation: Center top vent - intake
The new Top Vent provides 11% more airflow than the previous Vent. The new bigger switch makes opening and closing easier. The new Top Vent has three positions; closed, half open and fully open to adjust the airflow and prevent water intrusion when fully closed.
Front Ventilation: Diffuser system
The new diffusers are 20mm longer and straightened for improved aerodynamics, working together with the Air Wing to improve stability. Compared to the previous diffusers, the efficiency of the intake scoops of the new diffusers has increased by 19%. The new air intake vents not only have more adjustability with three positions; closed, half open and fully open but also help to improve sealing that decreases wind noise and water intrusion.
Front Ventilation: Brow vents extended to temple area
Fresh air can enter directly to the forehead area without the need for holes in this critical area of the shell and impact-absorbing liner. For specific models, the ventilation is extended to the temple area.
Front Ventilation: Three position chin vent
Three-position chin vent helps in demisting the visor and offering fresh, cool air to the rider.
Rear Ventilation: Neck exhaust vent
To enhance hot-air extraction from the interior. Increases the ventilation effect at the lower part of the helmet.
Rear Ventilation: Side exhausts
Produce low pressure behind the rear vent for better hot air extraction. Integrated in the shell for better aerodynamics, reduce wind noise and prevent buffeting at speed. Inside, a small foam dam helps to absorb and diminish excessive noise, without reducing ventilation performance.
Aerodynamics: Pull Down Chin Spoiler
Helps minimize wind noise and also aids with the extraction of hot air from the face area. Provides additional deflection of road debris away from neck. Depending on the model the Chin Spoiler is retractable.
Aerodynamics: Patented Air Wing® adjustable
MotoGP tested and designed to greatly reduce drag, turbulence and buffeting resulting in more comfort and additional top-speed. It improves stability of the helmet at high speeds or when braking hard and reduces noise. Depending on the model the Air Wing is adjustable in five different angles of attack positions to suit every riding position.
Visor: VAS Max Vision Visor with De-Mist option
VAS MAX Vision shield is standard to provide better visibility in all seasons and for all types of riding.
Visor: New shield latch system
Borrowed from our F1 helmet, completely modified 3D moving new shield latch mechanism secures the shield like never before, but operates smoothly with an intuitive fluid – one finger operation – even with gloves.
