This helmet is available with an "Aero Duckbill Chin". We recommend selecting this version for open cockpit use and selecting the "Standard" version for regular closed cockpit use. You can see the difference in the images above.
The Bell tradition of developing leading-edge, next-generation helmets continues with the RS7 Carbon. Based on the advanced 8860 HP7 model and developed through close collaboration with leading F1 drivers and teams, the Snell SA2020 and FIA8859-2015 certified RS7 Carbon is designed to be as aerodynamically sleek and lightweight as possible for the intense demands of high level racing that compete at higher speeds.
The RS7 Carbon features a lightweight carbon fiber shell
, advanced styling and redesigned interior that provides maximum comfort. The shell and shield design have been optimized by moving the shield pivot pointer to a lower position to improve acoustic comfort, aerodynamic behavior, and energy absorption. The RS7 liner system is all new featuring a multi-piece, multi-density high-impact custom bead absorbing liner. The helmet's redesigned ergonomic interior incorporates multiple density comfort foams and padding to ensure the best possible fit to accommodate a variety of head shapes.
Ventilation has been improved with the introduction of 14 air intake and extraction channels strategically placed around the shell, maximizing airflow around the head and the face. The RS7 has an optical grade Double Screen Anti Fog (DSAF) shield
, with variable thickness exceeding 5mm in the field of vision, setting a new standard for clarity and fog control. The shield seal has also been improved with the introduction of a rubber gasket ensuring that air and water especially in wet conditions can't penetrate into the helmet through the eyeport. The helmet's chin guard face piece is removable and the integrated channels offer multiple options to install integrated drinking tube systems and radio microphone systems.
Bell has an optional aero kit to further set the RS7 Carbon apart from the competition in high speed open cockpit racing.
This 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:
The RS7 Carbon is certified to the Snell SA2020 and the FIA8859-2015 standard.
