A carbon fibre Arai RX-7 RC. Suits you..

Rarer than rocking horse droppings? And far more useful in a crash. This carbon fibre Arai is the rarest motorcycle helmet we've seen

Arai have just released this tasty-looking RX7 made from carbon fibre. Yum.

Here's what they have to say about it:

Orders are now being taken for the brand new carbon fibre Arai RX-7 RC, one of the most exclusive motorcycle helmets ever produced. A maximum of 300 per year will be manufactured for export, guaranteeing rarity and only 250 will be available in Europe. Retail price in the UK for the RX-7 RC will be £2099.99.

Expensive? Perhaps, but the Arai RX-7 RC is based on the technology used for the GP-6 RC Formula 1 specification car-racing helmet; it consists of an extremely stiff and light carbon fibre outer shell, reinforced with Arai’s Peripherally Belted construction.

The carbon fibre used is extremely special; for the RX-7 RC Arai development engineers searched for a superior carbon fibre quality and finally found it in the aircraft industry, where the carbon fibre material (as used by Boeing) offered the qualities and properties they were looking for.

If the outer shell is a work of art, so too is the inner. The result of all the R&D effort and new technology is a helmet substantially lighter; but also with massive inherent strength and integrity. Just like the RX-7 GP the RX-7 RC exceeds ECE 22-05 and the new Snell M2010 standard – it’s also the lightest helmet approved to Snell M2010 by a large margin.

The RX-7 RC is available only in carbon with a clear coat finish, sizes XS-XXL. Each Arai 5 Star dealer will have an allocation of three only.
