Arai Helmet, Inc. is proud to announce a two-year deal that will see
Justin “Bam Bam” Barcia wear Arai helmets in both AMA Supercross and
Outdoor racing. Barcia, the 2011 and 2012 250SX East Coast
champion, will wear Arai’s all-new VX-Pro4 model. “Everyone knows Arai
builds some of the best helmets in the world,” said Barcia. “The
protection, fit and comfort of my VX-Pro4 will be a huge asset when I
take to the track this season.”
An intense competitor with a hard-charging style, Barcia’s pro career
began in 2009, which saw him take home the AMA Rookie of the Year
Award. After his back-to-back Supercross Lite titles, Barcia moved to
the 450 class in 2013, winning two rounds and claiming that series’
Rookie of the Year award as well. Barcia recently announced he will ride
for the Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX team in 2015.
“We’re so excited to have a rider of Justin’s caliber become part of
the Arai team,” said Brian Weston, Managing Director of Arai Helmet,
Inc. “We know that our new VX-Pro4 will help give Justin the confidence
he needs to succeed in 2015.” The Arai VX-Pro4 features improved
ventilation throughout, a redesigned peak and chin bar, plus an upgraded
emergency cheek pad release system. A replica version of the Barcia
VX-Pro4 will be available for purchase in early 2015.
