RX-7V Kenny Roberts Red

£699.99

Quick Overview

The RX-7V Kenny Roberts Red is the Red version of the already introduced Yellow version of this timeless legend. It is a celebration of our racing heritage that we can bring to life in our design on our new RX-7V, giving a retro look from the days of 2-stoke 500cc Grand Prix days but bang up to date with modern levels of safety. 

Details

  • Arai uses a net structure core, assembled and bonded within Super Fibre and other special synthetic fibres. These special fibres are also used for the visor panel of F-1 helmets and have superb characteristics in tensile strength and flexibility. Our shells are carefully moulded with multiple material layers including a Super Fibre 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.
