The RX-7V IoM TT 2018 Edition is a very desirable, and collectable piece of helmet art!.
It’s a long time tradition that Arai introduces at this time of the year the new limited edition Isle of Man TT helmet. But it’s not only about the new design. Arai has also renewed the cooperation with the IOM TT and will stay the official preferred helmet brand for the Isle of Man TT races for the coming years.
Arai and the Isle of Man TT have a long standing partnership and part of it is the introduction of a special, limited edition IoM TT helmet. The very first Arai limited edition was introduced back in 2007, the ‘’Centenary’’ model to commemorate 100 years of TT racing. Every year the many fans of the Arai IoM TT helmets are looking out for the new limited TT edition. This year’s design is extra special, because it is the 10th anniversary of the IoM TT helmet line.
As with all IoM TT helmets, the design originates from Aldo Drudi of Drudi Performance. It is black based with large red detailing and gold accents. Remarkable is the laurel on the chin piece with the text ‘’10th limited edition’’ underlining the fact that this is really a special IoM TT helmet. Of course the original TT logo is present (Arai as preferred partner is the only helmet brand allowed to use the original TT logo) just as the three-legged triskelion symbol so typical for the Isle of Man. Fans of the IoM TT helmet will notice that the graphics of the triskelion are less detailed and now offer a more slick appearance.
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 Eco Pure 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.
Whats New in the RX-7V Design
New Shell Shape The new design continues to benefit from that focus and delivers Arai’s smoothest shell shape. The benefit is to improve glancing off ability. The new VAS sheild system lowers the visor holder (Side Pods), and therefor lowers the visor mechanism below the Snell Safety test line, allowing for a smoother shell and better impact performance. Having a larger, smoother shell over a wider area increases the ability to divert more energy.
PB-SNC2 New resin for improving adhesiveness between each layer of fiber. Stronger outer shell. Approximately 30g weight saving
Ventilation 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 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.
More chin room The result of a newly design outer shell, there is now almost 3mm of extra face/chin room.
New Shield Lock System Borrowed from our F1 helmet, completely modified 3D moving new shield lock mechanism secures the shield like never before, but operates smoothly with an intuitive fluid – one finger operation – even with gloves.
New Shield System VAS: Variable Axis System allows the shield to travel in an arc, allowing a lower and more compact visor mechanism, not only improves helmet performance for rider protection but also allows easier shield changes with more intuitive design.
New interior Thinner frame materials and redesigned frame connection points make the latest interior comfort head liner even more comfortable. Stress joints allow the liner to flex and even separate in necessary so as to not interfere with the helmets impact energy management properties/performance.
New diffuser 20mm longer to increase airflow efficiency as well as improve high speed aerodynamics. Larger front intakes with intake shutters that better seal for a more aerodynamic effect when closed. Trailing sides of the diffuser body streamline airflow to improve stability, drag and wind noise.

The 2018 Isle of Man TT is an awesome design. The silver stripe and gold triskelion are metallic, and there's a fade to dark red on the red neckroll and top striping near the front.
The light red is closer to orange than seen on the photo.
The RX-7V moves a ton of air, even more than Shoei's X-Spirit III, but because of that will also waterboard you in the rain if you have the top/visor/chin vents open, something the X-Spirit III won't do. (Disclaimer, I don't ride in a tuck position, so that may affect the amount of air and/or water taken on by the helmet).
The fit is snug, but with plenty of space around the ears. The helmet is extremely stable at speed, and there's very little pull or movement when you turn your head.
If you're planning on fitting a comm system to the helmet, anything that affixes to the outside will work. Cardo's Packtalk Slim won't fit however, because the exhaust vent at the base of the helmet won't accommodate the battery element.
