Japanese helmet manufacturer Arai, the Official Isle of Man TT Races Helmet partner, has launched its annual TT races-themed helmet. To underline its special partnership with the Isle of Man and the TT Races, Arai introduces a special design – the ‘RX-7 GP IOMTT ‘14′ that will be produced in a limited production run. It is based on the race-ready RX-7 GP model but Aldo Drudi, under his signature “D-Perf”, has created a stunning design for this version. The top Italian designer has again created his own inimitable identity for the Arai RX-7 GP helmet and this year’s offering features the famously evocative words ‘Ellan Vannin’ (the Manx name for the Isle of Man), the three legged triskelion logo, the map of the famous mountain course and also comes with the official TT logo, identifying authentic products. The company will be providing its well-established race service to the race paddock, which includes helmet servicing and replacement throughout the race fortnight. They will also provide helmets to the Travelling Marshals who operate on the Mountain Course during the qualifying sessions and races. Continue reading →
