With great pride we introduce the first Virtual Reality race helmet system; HelmetVR.


HelmetVR is a unique Virtual Reality (VR) hardware product aimed at professional race driver training, sim-room experiences and sim racing enthusiasts. It accommodates all types of motor sport from Karting, Touringcar, Formula racing right up to F1. Should your racing class require a helmet, HelmetVR is the product of choice for practice and racing on virtual circuits. There is a wide range of VR supported racing simulator titles already available: iRacing,  Asseto corsaRaceRoomProject Cars and Kart Racing Pro.  Support for Rfactor2 and KartKraft will be added soon.


Whether you are a professional race driver perfecting the best racing lines, a commercial enterprise, or an enthusiast looking for the ultimate sim racing thrill at home, HelmetVR makes simulator racing real!

With its many unique features, our HelmetVR system places you in the cockpit on the virtual circuit. In VirtualReality, the visual 3D depth and one to one scale of its image makes judging a braking point or approaching a corner feel so realistic. It can help to improve overall lap times prior to racing on real world circuits. The HelmetVR experience is so close to real racing, drivers, sim racers and enthusiasts alike will certainly benefit from any virtual track time spent in HelmetVR.


To make a simulation realistic, all details matter.


For true immersion and realism whilst simulator racing or training, using a helmet provides an extra dimension and specific sensations to a driver’s head, adding reality to any simulation. HelmetVR’s professional integration of a VR headset into our line of real Arai helmets offers the most realistic VirtualReality SimRacing experience available today.

Normally worn VR headsets place a certain amount of pressure on the wearer’s forehead, this can become quite noticeable during a racing session. By neatly integrating the VR headset into the HelmetVR, pressure on the forehead is eliminated which makes for a more comfortable experience.

Custom made for you

To ensure the best quality possible, each HelmetVR is handmade to order in a limited series.

The recommended HelmetVR system specifications are:
• GPU (graphics card):
o NVIDIA GTX 970 or AMD R9 290 equivalents or greater
o HDMI 1.3 video output (directly on your graphics card) is required
o SLI isn’t supported; at least one GPU must individually meet these specifications
o Current public GPU driver—a recent driver is required (Update Your Graphics Card Driver)
• CPU (processor): Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
• RAM (memory): 8GB+ RAM
• USB: At least two (2x) USB 3.0 ports—three (3x) total available USB ports are required
o A third USB 3.0 port will be required for the Oculus Touch controllers when released, for a total of four (4x) available USB ports
• OS: Windows 7 64-bit, Service Pack 1 or newer is required
• HD (disk space): 4GB+ free space
• The headset has been engineered to certain standards so you can take the future of VR into your home. We believe you’ll have a great experience with a supported computer. While some unsupported systems may still let you complete headset setup, key aspects of the headset experience—such as responsiveness and resolution—may be diminished.

ADVISE: HelmetVR is not optimized for wearing glasses. Glasses need to go thru the head opening. Using lenses would be a good alternative.
