The new QV-PRO is nothing less than an ultimate sports-touring helmet. It features the advanced VAS technology of the also new RX-UV and even shares the same outer shell, but with different ventilation. This rounder, smoother and stronger shell with an intermediate oval fit offers the important "glancing off" properties needed for superior helmet performance at real world impacts. The QV-PRO features as the second model in line, the VAS (Variable Axis System) visor pivot system that offers a larger, smoother and stronger outer shell area. From the very early start, the QV-PRO has been designed as the ultimate all-round helmet with the advanced technology of the RX-7V, but also answering to the demands of the very large segment of sports-touring riders.
PB-SNC2 Shell - Super Fibre and other special synthetic fibres with superb tensile strength and flexibility characteristics, developed for F-1 helmet visor panel, assembled and bonded by Arai experts, reinforcing across the forehead area (imagine the steel belts used to hold a barrel together) with a variety of carefully stacked and moulded materials. Newly developed resin creates stronger bonds between shell materials with less weight.
Optimized Ventilation - The high-performance ventilation system of the QV-PRO was developed to offer all day long comfort to the rider. Large ducts and vents feature massive inlet and exhaust openings, while the large switches can be easily operated, even with thick gloves. It is this advanced ventilation system that makes the helmet perfect for those long rides in every weather.
Eco Pure Liner - The fully removable interior liner system has been improved with new Eco Pure material, which helps maintain neutral acidity levels close to human skin and antibacterial consumption. With the aim of a softer, deeper and even more comfortable fit we developed a new softer liner frame material. The new liner also has adjustable temple padding that allows for a customised fit.
Convenient speaker pocket - Built in communication systems are popular, but the problem is often that the room for a speaker is limited or just not present, causing unpleasant pressure points. The QV-PRO is equipped with special speaker pockets, offering room for mounting speakers without affecting comfort or fit (speaker not included).
Chin Cover - Attached to the bottom of the helmet, the new chin curtains helps to further accentuate the egg-shape form. The curtain simultaneously blocks air intrusion from turbulent air below and increases negative pressure to enhance the exhaust function of FFS by drawing more air from the mouth area.
5mm "Peel Away" - 5mm thick removable foam layer on the ear cups/cheek pads and temple pads. Offering more room, if desired, without the need to purchase an optional headliner or new pads/ear cups.
Full Support Interior - FCS Cheekpad with ear pocket recess for speakers and 5mm peel away layer for added room if needed. Larger space in mouth area for a more open feeling. Smaller NE nozzle without reduced exhaust efficiency. New emergency release tab positioned at the end of the release strap for easier access by rescue staff. Improved comfort performance with better fitting while being easier to put on and off.
