The RS7K LTWT brings to kart racing the same innovations Bell brought to us in the RS7C LTWT. The RS7C LTWT was developed through a collaboration with Penske Racing to reduce weight and enhance airflow. This ultra-lightweight version of the RS7 Carbon combines an aerospace-grade carbon shell
, reinforced energy absorbing liner system, and the performance features of the HP7 to create the most advanced, lightweight Snell rated helmet that can be used in North American karting.
Built for the serious kart racer, the RS7-K LTWT is the karting specific version of the RS7C LTWT with a non-fire retardant, extra durable
interior. Based on the HP7 design the RS-7K LTWT is delivered race-ready under 2.95 pounds.
The sleek, aerodynamic design features an advanced ventilation system with 14 intake and extraction channels that can be used with or without air intake covers. The RS7-K's double screen anti-fog (DSAF) visor and rubber gasket seal prevents water from entering the helmet in rain conditions.
The RS7-K LTWT features a front aero fascia and a pro-style interior with neck padding for outstanding comfort. The direct flow chin bar vents on the front of the helmet help to increase airflow and prevent shield fogging.
The RS7-K LTWT has been designed to work for all forms of kart racing with a sleek aerodynamic profile. An optional aerodynamic kit is also available to enhance helmet performance and provide greater stability at higher speeds. The aerodynamic kit includes a chin bar gurney which adds down force to the front of the helmet to prevent lift and a rear spoiler that improves overall helmet stability. Both items come in an unpainted clear finish and attach with included double sided adhesive that holds aggressively to the shell yet can be removed easily without damaging the helmet's finish.
Included with the optional Aero Kit:
2050062 - RS7-K Clear Chin Bar Gurney
2050031 - RS7-K Clear Rear Spoiler
The RS7-K takes a SE07 3MM Shield which features the SV SE07 pivot system and thumb tab on the drivers left side to allow for easy shield operation. Each helmet comes with a double screen anti-fog (DSAF) visor insert as standard equipment. The RS7-K also features Bell's redesigned face piece with recessed areas that allow for seamless radio integration and easy installation. Racers can also customize the fit of the RS7-K by using Bell's Cheek Pad Inserts in 5mm to 20mm sizes to tighten the fit in the cheek area.
The RS7-K LTWT is certified to the Snell K2020 standard
which requires the helmet to be tested to the Snell SA2020 impact test criteria but does not require the helmet to be fire retardant. This allows the interior to be of a more durable material to allowing this helmet to be comfortable for years of racing.
