Get the HJC Ben Spies MotoGP Replica Helmet

HJC Ben Spies Replica Helmet

I think this has got to be the nicest HJC racing replica helmet that we have seen to date.

This is the HJC R-PHA10 (also known as HJC RPS-10) Ben Spies MotoGP replica helmet, and you can see straightaway that it is stunning. The design is exactly the same as the one that Spies has run with during this MotoGP season. It has the bold ‘star’ motif on top; the red, white and blue colour scheme, and the rear of the helmet features a map of Texas with the racing number ’11’ and initials of Ben Spies.

Another bonus about HJC replica helmets is that they are way more affordable than most of the other brands (the AGV Valentino Rossi replicas spring to mind as being a prime example of how expensive these things can get). The best prices can be found online, so check the bottom of the page and find out where you can buy the Ben Spies helmet.

Helmet Specification:

  • Max Air-flow Top Vent: Variable air flow is adjusted by glove-friendly dials on each intake vent.
  • Advanced P.I.M. (Premium Integrated Matrix) Fiberglass: Super lightweight shell is designed for superior fit and comfort using advanced CAD technology.
  • RapidFire Shield Replacement System: Simple and secure shield ratchet system provides ultra-quick, tool-less removal and installation for efficient operation.
  • Optically-superior Pinlock®-prepared 2D Flat-Racing Shield:Our innovative Center one-touch open/close locking system is designed for an extremely secure seal.
  • “ACS” Advanced Channeling Ventilation System: Full front to back airflow flushes heat and humidity up and out. Countless hours of development and testing conducted inside of our advanced wind tunnel have resulted in absolute smooth air flow both inside and outside. The reward is low wind resistance and maximum ventilation.
  • SilverCool Plus Interior: Premium soft feel with Ginkgo Extract, moisture-wicking and odor-free interior with advanced silver anti-bacterial fabric. Crown and cheek pads are fully removable and washable.

Buy the Arai Chaser Leon Haslam – World Cup replica helmet (limited edition)

Arai Chaser Leon Haslam - World Cup replica helmet (limited edition)

Okay, so it might have been misguided, or simply naive, to create a helmet design for a tribute to the England World Cup team, but that’s what Leon Haslam did, and now you can own the replica.

This Leon Haslam World Cup replica was worn by Haslam in the WSBK round at Kyalami and only 250 replicas are being made, making this a real collectors item.

The helmet features a golden lion’s head on either side, and three lions on the chin. The names of England’s 1966 World Cup winning squad are printed around the base, and Haslam’s racing number, 91, is featured on the back.

Haslam commented on design saying:
“I love this. It’s great to have an input in designing something so personal and see the end result in the flesh – and this helmet looks fantastic, even better than I expected. I’ll be proud to wear it this weekend, battling for wins and the WSB championship and can only hope and dream that we get somewhere near the top step as a team in the World Cup itself.”

Product Specifications:

  • Super Fibre Construction (SFC)
  • Ring-shaped strengthening in lower section
  • Triple density inner shell for even better shock absorption
  • New Air Conductor Ergo Duct venting system (Read the RiDE magazine review under “Reviews & Tests” to hear how effective the professionals rate this system)
  • Side exhausts vents (probably a 1st in this price level)
  • Improved breath deflector
  • Powerful chin vent with enlarged air vents for a greater air intake when desired
  • Fully washable interior
  • Free Flow System (FFS) for reduced wind noise and better aerodynamics
  • Removable cheek pads, which can be exchanged for 5 different sizes of padding, ensuring a great, personalised fit
  • Lever release visor removal for quick changes without tools
  • Aerodynamically recessed visor position, for less draft noise on these critical areas
  • Patented visor brow ventilation ducts
  • 2mm polycarbonate Pinlock ready visor
  • Pinlock Anti-Fog visor insert included, ensuring a fog free ride all year long
  • Double ‘D’-Ring fastening

Arai RX-7 GP Leon Haslam WSBK replica helmet

Arai RX-7 GP Leon Haslam WSBK replica helmet

This is the Arai RX-7 GP Leon Haslam WSBK replica helmet. The design is a copy of Leon Haslam’s helmet design from his World Superbikes season as it available from most good online stockists (see bottom of the page for where to buy this helmet at the best prices).

Leon Haslam said of the design:
“I’m really pleased with this evolution of my helmet design. I wanted to keep the two separate sides – as in the red and blue – as it ties in with the Devil and Angel theme I’ve had for a while, but freshen the whole job up a bit. Aldo Drudi came up with the H for Haslam – this is a bit of a take on my dad Ron’s old lids; he used to have RH on the front, back in the day. Now I’ve got a big, modern white H on the front!”

Arai’s RX-7 GP, a racing helmet considered by many as the benchmark against which all others are measured

Product Description:
The RX-7 GP replaces the Corsair as its range-topping helmet and is completely new from construction right through to the visor.

The structural net composite (SNC) shell with peripheral belting and enhanced hyper ridge strengthening in the lower section represents Arai’s most advance design to date. Other benefits from the new construction include a larger opening to make the helmet more comfortable when putting it on and off and with the centre of gravity moved lower, the helmet sits more naturally to help reduce fatigue.

Changes to the quick release visor have increased peripheral vision while the switches on the vents are now bigger, making them easier to operate wearing gloves. Between the trademark twin diffusers is now a five-position air wing, designed to reduce drag, turbulence and buffeting.

RX-7 GP Helmet Specification

+ Peripherally belted structural net composite (SNC) shell.
+ Enhanced hyper ridge strengthening in lower section.
+ Larger opening for increased ease when taking helmet on or off.
+ Anatomically shaped helmet – gives clean and aerodynamic appearance.
+ Triple density inner shell
+ Air intake stabiliser diffuser – increases airflow through the helmet.
+ Five position air wing – reduces a drag, turbulence and buffeting.
+ Airflow spoiler – directs the airflow around the bottom edge
+ Power intake shutter chin vent
+ Free flow system (FFS) – reduces draft and wind noise.
+ Wider aperture / larger visor – for better peripheral vision
+ New shaped side exhaust vents and new neck exhaust vent
+ Improved breath deflector
+ Emergency release cheek pads
+ Fully washable and removable Dry Cool interior
+ Removable skull cap and cheek pads available in 6 sizes
+ Removable neck roll
+ Lever release visor removal system (LRS)
+ Aerodynamic recessed visor holder system
+ Patented visor brow ventilation ducts
+ Aerodynamic 3D Pinlock ready visor with de-mist visor lock

Arai RX-7 GP Cal Crutchlow WSBK replica helmet

Arai RX-7 GP Corsair Cal Crutchlow WSBK replica helmet

This is Arai’s Cal Crutchlow World Superbikes replica helemt, that is now available online (although it’s not the easiest Arai replica to find at the moment). The design features prominent Monster Energy logos on either side, and has Crutchlow’s green flames running up the center of the helmet. A bold and striking design.

The press release for this states:
“Cal’s bright black and green paint – designed by Nottingham-based Rich Art – is as wild as his riding style, with a full dose of Monster Energy branding giving his RX-7 GP replica the full ‘factory’ look”

Arai RX-7 GP Freddie Spencer replica helmet

Arai RX-7 GP Freddie Spencer replica helmet

This is the Arai Freddie Spencer replica helmet in the RX-7 GP Range.

This replica helmet design remains true to Freddie Spencer’s famous and iconic white, blue and red motif and was actually one of the very first racing replica helmet designs that was produced by Arai – and it still remains popular to this day.

‘Fast’ Freddie Spencer became Arai’s first motorcycle world champion when he clinched the 1983 500GP championship on his Honda NS 500. Along with being the youngest ever MotoGP champion, Freddie Spencer is also the only rider in history to have won the 500cc and 250cc championships in the same year, which he did in 1985.

This is a beautiful helmet with a subtle, historic, and timeless design.
