This is how they describe it:

This is the pinnacle of the ARAI helmet range – the RX-7 RR5 Tricolore 12, designed by Aldo Drudi and painted in well know colors of the Italian flag. Compared to the normal glass fiber shells the RX-7 RR5 laminate fiberglass belted SNC shell (a belt laid peripherally on top of the eye-opening of the shell, increasing its rigidity) is 40% more rigid, the interior dry-cool linning is completely removable and washable while the wider wind screen is anti-fog and scratch resistant.
I believe it's pretty much the same as a Corsair V.
Isn't RX-7, the equivalent (or very similar) for Corsair V in Europe...?

RX-7 is the old model.

The Corsair-V replaced it. I actually emailed Ducati NA's online store to ask if it was a typo as they had a different one listed as an RX-7 but it was in fact the Corsair-V.

Well, this thing is not even manufactured yet. (ESD End of May as per Commonwealth motorcycle)
So, I doubt Arai will build it as per old specs.
I'm pretty sure it'll end up as a Corsair V Ducati re-badge.
And to be honnest, I bought it more for the look...!

Yeah, I think the description is just wrong. It'll be a Corsair-V.

This is the pinnacle of the ARAI helmet range – the RX-7 RC, at least in germany.
And as i was ordering some carbon stuff for the bike (which should arrive any moment!!!!)
the helmet was a nice extra.

but pricy!

The ARAI Corsair-V carbon IS the coolest lid on earth....
But WAY too much money for me..., so I settled for the Duc...
I did participate in the Revzilla contest to win one though...
