Arai RX-7V - Plain
The Arai RX-7V is a top-spec racing full-face with a super-fibre shell, optimal ventilation and VAS Max-Vision visor.
The RX-7V is the culmination of Arai's research and experience in helmet development and represents their most technologically advanced helmet in their sports-touring range. The Super-fibre shell is infused with special synthetic fibres previously used in Formula 1 for superior strength while retaining flexibility and reducing weight. Further reinforced by a super-fibre belt across the eyeport, the rounded shell features Arai's Variable Axis System, VAS for short, for glance off performance and deflecting impact energy away from the helmet.
The RX-7V features a new Type 12 rear diffuser that is longer and straighter exhausting massive amounts of air from the helmet improving the aerodynamic performance drastically. The diffuser also works alongside the ‘Air Wing’ and the pull-down chin spoiler to give greater stability when riding. The ventilation mechanism on the chin area can be adjusted in 3 positions to allow more air while reducing win noise, which works alongside the air inlets at the top centre of the helmet and the brows to provide optimal airflow and comfort.
The fully removable interior is made from Eco Pure textile with natural antibacterial properties and a peel away system with space to accommodate intercom speakers. The Emergency Release System allows for easy paramedic access in an accident, Double-D ring is secure and reliable, and the included VAS Max Vision Visor features a new mechanism that allows user-friendly installation and removal.

At Infinity Motorcycles we pride ourselves on having the best selection of helmets at the best possible prices. Any collection of motorcycle helmets would be incomplete without Arai, a premium motorcycle helmet brand with a history of making quality helmets stretching back to the 1930s.
Since those early days they’ve come a long way. Today an Arai helmet is an impressive statement of your dedication to motorcycling as well as an essential piece of motorcycle gear.
The Arai Helmets Difference
You might be wondering why anyone would pay up to and over £500 for an Arai helmet when you could buy a £50 lid. It’s a question we are asked in our branches practically every day. The answer is simply that Arai helmets are designed, built and tested differently.
There are many helmets that are very good and meet all required standards. Arai helmets exceed the relevant standards and are extraordinarily well-built, providing superior protection and exceptional comfort.
Run By Riders
From their foundation Arai were different. They are not a corporation run by a board of directors who are only interested in profit. They are a family-run business spanning multiple generations of riders, all of whom have been dedicated to providing the very best gear possible.
Akhito Arai currently runs Arai, who took over from his father, Michio, who in turn took over from his father, Hirotake, the founder of Arai Helmets. That the Arai family name is still proudly emblazoned on every helmet makes a good indicator that there hasn’t been any corner cutting since the beginning!
We think that there is a real and distinct difference between the quality in products motivated by profit alone, and products motivated by honour, familial pride and the joy of skilled craftsmanship. This difference can be clearly seen in all Arai helmets.
Crafted With Care
An Arai helmet is constructed by hand, over a course of eighteen man-hours, by well trained and specialist craftsmen. This is more than a nice gesture or a gimmick.
Each shell takes twenty seven distinct steps to create, and everything from testing and standards to manufacture and design is based on rigorous and unique in-house craftsmanship. Earning the right to work on an Arai helmet can take five years or more.
This process means that quality is assured throughout the crafting process by a trained professional who understands the helmet completely. Arai helmets are not simply checking off a limited list of features, meaning that quality is consistently high.
The only automated part of the entire process is an automated laser beam used for cutting.
Ready For Any Challenge
In Europe crash helmets need only pass CE-2205 to be deemed safe enough to be sold as protection. All Arai helmets pass this test, and any other test, worldwide. It’s important to be clear that Arai helmets don’t just “meet” the required standards; they exceed these standards
Every Arai helmet is handmade and goes through five separate quality inspections. Whether it’s after the shell is made, or after paint and graphics, or even after final assembly, even the slightest imperfection will be eliminated. When you have finished with your Arai, before you through it away, take it apart and look inside the shell – there is a stamp in there signed by everyone who worked on your helmet, so that quality control can be tracked through every stem of manufacturing.
Note that this quality control applies to every Arai, not every tenth or hundredth. This is part of the reason why Arai has offered a 5 Year Limited Warranty for the last 15 years.
Arai were the first to offer comfort features like removable cheek pads, different interior shapes and liners in different thicknesses for a custom fit.
Arai are the only brand to have been ranked as number one in the J.D. Power Motorcycle Helmet Customer Satisfaction Survey for thirteen years in a row.
Arai are the only brand of motorcycle helmet trusted by the majority of Formula 1 drivers.
The bottom line is that wearing an Arai Helmet will make you feel more comfortable and safer, for hours on end, day after day, and long after a cheap helmet has got so uncomfortable and draughty that it has been replaced.
Why Infinity And Arai?
Why should you buy Arai helmets from Infinty? Well, if you’re buying online, there’s no reason other than the famous Infinity Motorcycles customer service, our 7 day helmet exchange policy, and our low prices.

This is over and above their personal riding experience and extensive knowledge of motorcycle gear!

Perfection in helmet form
I've had an RX-7V on my head for approximately 90% of my riding over the last 4 years. Sun. Rain. Snow. Road. Off-Road. Track. It saw pretty much everything. It is a really well built helmet and oozes quality from the paint to the mechanisms. Arai changed the visor mechanism so no more accidental side pod pop offs at the side of the road. It's really easy to change and can be done swiftly when you get the knack. The adjustable and removable interior is great, a really comfy place to be for a days riding. My favorite feature would have to be the ventilation. Not only do you have massive choice about what to open and close, get the whole lot open and cool air just flows over your head. It's brilliant! The only thing that I could say as a negative is the price, it's expensive, but it's worth every penny. You can see where your money has gone. My complaint is that I would like to buy two and it's hard to justify at this price! I would highly recommend it to anyone!
Worth every penny
After a lot of consideration I took the plunge and the rx7v did not disappoint. It is beautifully crafted the subtle details like the hidden chin spoiler, the recess for the pinlock or the amazing visor lock system to mention just a few make all the difference, ventilation is amazing and as for comfort 10 mins after you put it on you’ve forgotten it’s there! It truly is worth every penny of the price tag. I strongly urge anyone who has been considering the rx7v to go and try one on you won’t be disappointed.
