Bell Introduces Karting Only Version RS7

The Bell tradition of developing leading-edge, next-generation helmets continues with the introduction of a karting only version of the RS7. 

Based on the HP7 design, the RS7K features a lightweight carbon composite shell, advanced styling and redesigned interior that provides maximum comfort. The shell and shield design has been optimized by moving the shield pivot pointer to a lower position to improve acoustic comfort, aerodynamic behavior and energy absorbing capacities. The RS7K 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. A duel chamber air intake is available as an accessory item (not included) for drivers who prefer added direct ventilation. The RS7K has an optical grade injected 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 hollow synthetic 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, available in various thicknesses to accommodate different cheek and jaw shapes. Additional chin bar, top gurneys and rear spoilers (sold separately) are available to customize the aerodynamic performance of the helmet. 

The RS7K features a non-fire retardant interior and is certified to the Snell K2015 standard and is available in white in sizes S (57) to XL (61+). The helmet takes the SE07 3MM shield which features the SV SE07 pivot system with thumb tab on the driver’s left side to allow for easy shield operation. It comes equipped with double screen anti fog visor insert and helmet bag. The RS7K retails for $499.95.
