Video: Bryan Staring’s Partnership With Arai In 2022
Ex-WSBK/MotoGP and Current ABSK rider, Bryan Staring, made the move to an Arai lid for 2022. This season is proving to be a competitive space for riders and machines, with each seeking out the best advantages in motorcycles and riding gear, where Bryan and the team choose to work with Arai for 2022.
“Racing in Arai helmets is the dream for me. I couldn’t be happier to have the support of this well known manufacturer with an enormous history of being the helmet of choice for the world’s top riders. When selecting a helmet, there are many things that are important, like crash testing and safety standards, the quality of the materials in the shell, the fit and the energy absorption of the EPS foam.”
“Then for specific racing use, the ventilation, field of view and antifog capacity for racing in the rain, are all points to consider. Arai is a premium brand that excel in every one of these requirements.” he said.

The RX-7V represents the summit of Arai’s knowledge, experience and know-how in helmet technology. With a 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 anti-microbial material liner with an even slimmer frame, to the 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 stronger, smoother shell and VAS, the RX-7V is closer to the ideal lid shape than ever. With VAS, the visor mounting position is lowered 24mm in pursuit of the ideal smoother shape that raises the ability of glancing off energy. As a result, this has made it possible for the shell to be completely smooth above the test line of the Snell standard.
