Arai RX-7 GP / Corsair V - Noriyuki Haga Rainbow WSBK replica helmet - size Large superb condition. Very rare, iconic design no reserve summer bargain!For the full safety/design features being an apex predator helmet, theres a lot! Please see bottom of my lengthy apologies! Many bikers would argue that this is the worlds coolest helmet design ever. In 2019, it was voted as the most wanted Arai on a popular social media site. Its certainly one of the most amazing Arai helmet graphic designs of all time and is the last/most recent design used by Nirto Nori Haga before he retired from top-class racing. Actually, the ever-smiling WSBK/BSB legend is still using the same amazing Rainbow helmet design he. Currently competes in the Italian CIV Supersport 600 Championship. The Rainbow design transitions from flame red (front) to pearl white (middle) to gloss black (rear) accentuated by the highly detailed and intricate pattern of white, blue and red swirly flames flowing from front to back. Theres gorgeous blue, silver and black pinstriping, as well as seamless colour blending and silhouette effects (such as the racing number 41 on the sides). When you view the close-ups pics: it looks even better in real life! The helmet also has an amazing metal flake finish under the clear coat throughout so it glistens in the sunshine (photo no 12 taken in direct sunlight doesnt capture the full effect: in real-life it sparkles all over). This is arguably the best work of the famed Italian designer Altro Drudi (Drudi Performance) who also does Rossis helmets. The helmet comes from a pet-free, non-smoking home and has been lovingly stored in a cool dry place over the years. Comes with original Arai box, microfibre cloth bag and two visors clear and dark tint which are scratch-free and super-easy to swap out thanks to Arais patented visor system. Superb condition its been polished more often than used! , apart from a few minor stone chips which are barely noticeable (see close-up pictures below).
All the vents/closures function perfectly. Add it to your legendary racers / worlds coolest helmets collection or wear it for super-cool street-cred. Brief summary of the 45-year-old racing legend. Haga was runner-up in WSBK three times and came third four times.
He also raced for the. Swan YamahaBritish Superbike Team in 2012 and Paul Bird Motorsport in 2013 in the BSB championship. Won the Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race (with Colin Edwards as his team mate), as well as the Japanese Superbike Championship. The RX-7 GP / Corsair V is Arai's top of the range helmet, featuring highly sophisticated cutting edge technology, specifically developed with professionalMoto GP and World Superbike riders.

Peripherally belted SNC (Structural Net Composite)shell.Larger opening for increased ease when taking helmet on or off. Anatomically shaped helmet - gives clean and aerodynamic appearance. Five density one piece inner shell. Air intake stabiliser diffuser - increases airflow through the helmet. Five position air wing - reduces drag, turbulence and buffeting.
Airflow spoiler - directs the airflow around the bottom edge. Power intake shutter chin vent. Free Flow System (FFS) - reduces draft and wind noise. Wider aperture/larger visor - for better peripheral vision. New shaped side exhaust vents and new neck exhaust vent.Aeroflap - reduces wind noise and turbulence. Fully washable and removable Dry Cool® interior. Lever release visor removal system (LRS). Aerodynamic recessed visor holder system. Patented visor brow ventilation ducts.

Aerodynamic visor with de-mist function. Double'D' ring fastening system ensures correct strap tension at all times. Has a wider aperture offering a wider angle of view. It offers more view through the bends. The next generation, race tested Super AdSis'I' visor is extended by 5 mm at both sides.
Redesigned, integrated high-efficiency ventilation system. Air taken from the visor brow vents is directed to the temple area through special inner duct air channels. The multiplier effect of the Side Exhaust Duct and the new Neck Exhaust Nozzle increases the ventilation effect at the lower part of the helmet. Fresh air is redirected from the brow vent air across the temples and to the ears, and is then efficiently exhausted out via the newly designed side cowls. The new Power Intake Shutter increases the amount of airflow into the helmet.The brand new MotoGP tested and developed'Air Wing' is easily adjustable, even with gloves on, in five different angles of attack positions to suit every riding position. The Air Wing reduces drag, turbulence and buffeting resulting in more comfort and additional top-speed. The new airflow spoiler directs the airflow around the bottom edge. Together with the new Power Intake Shutter chin vent and the FFS (Free FlowSystem) aerodynamics around the bottom are optimized. A belt laid peripherally on the top of the eye-opening of the shell increases the rigidity of the shell even further. This belt construction was devised during F-1 helmet development to reinforce the forehead area of the shell. The main material of the outer shell is Arai is exclusive Super Fibre, now with increased fibre density. It is now 35% stronger in both anti-stretch and anti-compress ability compared to standard fibre. Newly equipped with'Air-In Stabilizer' and additional air intake between the front and rear intake in the diffuser and large toggles. The Air-In ports help accelerate air out the back, increasing airflow. The reshaped and aligned front intake scoops flow more air into the helmet. Thanks to this new ventilation system, interior temperatures are lowered much faster than with previous versions. Both cheek pads and the neck roll can be removed in seconds thanks to the advanced Emergency Release System. Rescue and medical workers can easily remove the newly designed removable neck roll and the cheek pads by just pulling the pad release tabs.
This offers extra room within the helmet, making removal of the helmet much easier and minimising the risk of additional injury. Penetration tested shell features Hyper Rib ridge lines around the bottom that prevent compressing of the shell. Sleek, aerodynamic Side Exhaust Duct integrated into the shell regulate air stream and prevent buffeting at speed.The newly shaped side cowls with the aerodynamic performance of the AirWing combine to add overall stability to the helmet. The redesign of the cowl vents creates equal inward air pressure against the sides of the helmet, reducing lateral turbulence and buffeting.
