Quick Overview

HRC where HRC stands of course for ‘’Honda Racing Corporation’’ where all of the great Honda race bikes are developed and built. We are proud to announce that Arai has an agreement with HRC for the use of the famous logo, but for a limited time and that is why this new RX-7V is considered a true limited edition that is only available for pre-ordering. This design will not be stocked at the Arai Europe warehouse! Aldo Drudi is the designer of this HRC design, showing the Honda racing colours, the HRC logo and on both sides the famous Honda wings that are typical for the brand. There is an additional small logo on the chin piece used for photography that shows a serial number, the serial number will however not be used on the final version.


  • Arai uses a net structure core, assembled and bonded within Super Fiber and other special synthetic fibers. These special fibers are also used for the visor panel of F-1 helmets and have superb characteristics in tensile strength and flexibility. Our shells are carefully molded with multiple material layers including a Super Fiber belt across the helmet, just above the visor opening for extra strength. We have also developed a new resin in pursuit of a lightweight but very strong shell.
  • VAS (Variable Axis System)
  • In any helmet, regardless of brand, the amount of energy that can be absorbed is limited. Therefore, avoiding potential impact energy by glancing off should also be a key function of a helmet. So we have been pursuing a sleek shape that is more likely to glance off energy. Most shield mounting systems require indents with a high pivot point in the shell, even Arai, so as to open and close the shield. On the new "VAS", the mounting position was lowered 24mm in pursuit of the ideal smoother shape that increases the ability of glancing 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.
