Arai RX-7V Jonathan Rea Gold Edition Motorcycle Helmet
In 2019 Jonathan Rea clinched his fifth consecutive FIM Superbike World Championship title at round 11 of the series in Magny Cours, France. As part of the celebration his long-time helmet supplier Arai made a special gold edition in honour of his achievement. For 2020 the renowned helmet designer Aldo Drudi, who designed Jonathan's current helmet, has prepared a golden edition of his iconic design. Claiming five consecutive titles is no small feat, and to emphasize this achievement, there is a “5 in a row” star in the style of the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame featuring a big number 5 on the back of the helmet.
This is a unique occassion for both Jonathan and Arai as it is the first time a replica of a champions helmet has been made available to the public.
Jonathan will retain his regular helmet design for the 2020 WorldSBK campaign but will use the gold design on several occassions throughout the year, such as testing and other special events, starting with the recent test at Jerez in Januray 2020.
Jonathan Rea: "I have been with Arai for so many years and I have had some major crashes in my racing career but my Arai helmet always kept me safe. I’m so happy how it turned out and it’s looks great on the bike. Thanks to Arai for making it happen and I hope my fans will love it.”
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.
