The QV is nothing less than an ultimate sports-touring helmet. It features the advanced VAS technology of the RX-7V 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 in real world impacts. The VAS (Variable Axis System) visor pivot offers a larger smoother and stronger outer shell area. The QV 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.
