RX-7V Evo Step Red Helmet
Arai RX-7V Evo Step Red helmet
VAS – With this new sighting system we get the ideal helmet shape even closer.
In its long company history Arai has researched abraisioncharakteristics further enhanced by the observed behavior of the head (helmet) in real accidents, by new developments. The advanced VAS-sighting system improves the property of the helmet, to be able to slide off of obstacles.
These new features are all incorporated into the new Arai RX7-V. The Arai RX7-V forms so that the new top of the line brand Arai.
For all helmets – regardless of brand – the amount of energy absorbed is limited. The slipping of obstacles helps to improve the energy consumption in real accidents (or optimizing). Therefore Arai has a stronger shell and smoother shape designed so that the helmet can absorb the impact energy better. A small change in the visor mounting mechanism was required for the operation of the current-visor pivot joint. In order to improve the energy absorbing potential, the size of the VAS-hinge cover has been reduced and the cover set deeper into the shell, whereby 24 mm could be obtained compared to the shell standard in the section, so that the shell during tests at the temple area was smoother.
Compared to the shell of the RX-7 GP smoother the area has been increased by an average of 24 mm in the temporal region, which is due to the change in VAS shell model. The larger and smoother shell enhances the ability to absorb more energy.
Normally, the visor mounting position should remain relatively high, since a lower visor hinge makes opening or closing of the visor impossible. The SAI visor system has only one axis (pivot poinovable pivot point). The visor actuating the VAS model was made possible by the power take-off course was combined based on an imaginary axis with the two curves of a double pivot point. This allows opening and closing of the visor, even when this is mounted 24 mm deeper.
Dual function device for side panel / panel and visor pin for quick and easy removal of the visor. The visibility of the visor mechanism allows for easier replacement of the visor.
The locking system of the VAS-locked visor and the visor keeps safe closed to prevent accidental opening. In addition to an anti-fogging function improved locking allows an intuitive and seamless use of the visor.
Stronger shell, enhanced by the latest technologies:
PB SNC2 Shell ( ECE R22.06 )
Super fibers and other special synthetic fibers having excellent tensile strength and good flexibility properties, developed for Formula 1 helmets, handmade by Arai experts. Just like the steel belts that hold together a wooden barrel, with a variety carefully co-defined and shaped materials. Newly developed resin creates a stronger compounds of shell materials with simultaneous weight reduction.
Diffuser Type 12
The new Diffuser Type 12 are 20 mm longer and were straightened in favor of improved aerodynamics. Together with the Air Wing to improve the helmet stability. Compared to the previous diffuser system of the type 10, the inlets of the new diffuser have increased type 12 by 19%. The new air intake ports not only provide better regulation through the three positions, closed, semi-open and open, but also improve the sealing against wind noise and prevent the ingress of water.
Eco Pure lining
The completely removed lining system has been improved with a new Eco Pure material. It helps to preserve the neutral acidity of the skin and acts also antibacterial. To make the helmet even softer and more comfortable, we have developed this new, softer lining material. The new lining also has changeable temple pads to individually improve the fit can.
VAS V MV-visor
The VAS MAX Vision visor provides standard much better visibility in all kinds of weather and driving conditions. A clear, fog-free Pinlock is included and can be mounted if required.
The new IC Duct5 channel system enables 11% more airflow than the previous Delta Duct5 system. The new larger switch facilitates the opening and closing. The new IC Duct5-channel system has three positions (closed, semi-open and open) to adjust the flow of air and prevent the ingress of water in the closed state.
Improved air passage around the eyes with directly discharging air duct to the rear side outlets (Cowl-6).
The located on the underside of the helmet chin new coverage contributes to further support the Egg-Shape form. It blocks the penetration of turbulent air flows and increases the negative pressure in order to improve the derivative function of the FFS system by more air enters the mouth area.
Full Support Interiors
FCS-cheek pads with built-in speakers-wells and a 5 mm thick removable foam layer for extra space, if needed. More space in the mouth-chin area for a more open feel. Smaller NE-nozzle without reducing efficiency. New emergency opening system at the end of the opening lift strap for easy opening by rescuers. Improved comfort with improved fit makes for easier mounting and removing the helmet.
What is slipping?
This is the ability to slide off of obstacles, so that no energy goes directly into the helmet and instead in an accident as much energy as possible is drained. Arai believes that the ability to absorb energy is one of the most important performance factors of a helmet in case of accidents in everyday life. A helmet should match not only recognized laboratory test standards. He should prove themselves even under conditions and in situations outside the criteria of accepted standards. Arai believes that the R75-concept for our shell construction with a rounder and smoother shell the possibility of a helmet improves to distribute crash energy and reduce. We learned in our company's long history in accidents in everyday life.
In real accidents in everyday life, however, it looks very different. In actual accidents has been found in most cases that helmets meet obstacles (oblique collision) in a non-perpendicular angle. Therefore, the point of impact is moved in an oblique impact, since Helm and obstacle move against each other. This changing point of impact enhances the ability of the helmet to be able to distribute and reduce the impact energy better. What we mean by slipping. Arai believes that no helmet can absorb any impact energy. Therefore, the reduction or distribution of a possible impact energy by a rounder and smoother shell should be a key function of a helmet. For this reason, R75 one of the main factory standards with Arai.
