ARAI RX-7 GP CRUTCHLOW REPLICA ARRIVES IN UK
August 31 2010.


Fresh from an incredible double victory at the Silverstone round of WSB, and lying fifth in the championship overall, Yamaha rider Cal Crutchlow is now celebrating the arrival of his replica into stock at Phoenix Distribution, the UK's Arai importer.

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. As ever, Cal's not shy with his words; "I don't hold anything back on the track, and neither does my helmet paint, which is absolutely mega. It's great that it's finally available as I'm always getting asked by fans when it would be here. It's been a tough year, but the Silverstone result was fantastic and having my replica now available, things are just getting better and better".

Arai's RX-7 GP is a racing helmet considered by many as the benchmark against which all others are measured. Featuring a peripherally belted Structural Net Composite (SNC) shell, with hyper ridge strengthening in its lower section and wider aperture (plus larger visor) for better vision the RX-7 GP is the most technologically advanced motorcycle helmet Arai has ever produced. The RX-7 GP's Air Intake Stabiliser Diffuser increases airflow through the helmet, while the Airflow Spoiler and visor brow ventilation ducts ensure suitable climate control for any situation. The five-position Air Wing reduces drag, turbulence and buffeting.

The Arai RX-7 GP exceeds ECE Regulation 22-05 and the new SNELL M2010 standard. ECE 22-05 represents the legal minimums for helmets in road use throughout the European Union while Snell M2010, introduced in October 2009, demands protective standards well beyond these legal minimums. The RX-7 GP easily surpasses ECE 22-05 and was the first helmet to meet Snell M2010, offering far superior head protection for motorcyclists.

The Arai RX-7 GP Crutchlow replica is available in sizes XS-XL and has an RRP of £589.99.
