Arai RX-7 GP Leon Haslam WSBK replica helmet

This is the Arai RX-7 GP Leon Haslam WSBK replica helmet. The design is a copy of Leon Haslam’s helmet design from his World Superbikes season as it available from most good online stockists (see bottom of the page for where to buy this helmet at the best prices).

Leon Haslam said of the design:
“I’m really pleased with this evolution of my helmet design. I wanted to keep the two separate sides – as in the red and blue – as it ties in with the Devil and Angel theme I’ve had for a while, but freshen the whole job up a bit. Aldo Drudi came up with the H for Haslam – this is a bit of a take on my dad Ron’s old lids; he used to have RH on the front, back in the day. Now I’ve got a big, modern white H on the front!”

Arai’s RX-7 GP, a racing helmet considered by many as the benchmark against which all others are measured

Product Description:
The RX-7 GP replaces the Corsair as its range-topping helmet and is completely new from construction right through to the visor.

The structural net composite (SNC) shell with peripheral belting and enhanced hyper ridge strengthening in the lower section represents Arai’s most advance design to date. Other benefits from the new construction include a larger opening to make the helmet more comfortable when putting it on and off and with the centre of gravity moved lower, the helmet sits more naturally to help reduce fatigue.

Changes to the quick release visor have increased peripheral vision while the switches on the vents are now bigger, making them easier to operate wearing gloves. Between the trademark twin diffusers is now a five-position air wing, designed to reduce drag, turbulence and buffeting.
