Now these are slick – HJC have released two new Ben Spies replica MotoGP helmets in their R-PHA range and they are available now.
Plus the good thing about HJC helmets is that are are pretty affordable for race replicas (especially when compared to the AGV or X-lite replica helmets). The Ben Spies design is pretty special too.
There are two versions of the helmet available.
The first one is the ‘HJC R-PHA Ben Spies MotoGP ‘Monster’ Helmet‘.
This helmet is the same as Ben Spies currently races with in MotoGP.
The design features the large star design at the top of the helmet, and features the ‘Monster Claw’ logo on either side.
The rear features a map of Texas, the number ’11’, and the initials of Ben Spies.
This is a simple but striking design, and design-wise it is probably one of our favourites currently on the MotoGP grid.
A stunning lid. If you want to find out more information about this Ben Spies MotoGP replica helmet, including where you can buy it then check out the Product Page.
The second helmet is a ‘Special Edition’ version of the Ben Spies MotoGP helmet.
The design features a bold red background behind the star motif, and the racing numbers on the rear are also in a bold red colour.
Once again, this ‘Special Edition’ Ben Spies MotoGP helmet is available now and if you want to find out more information, including where it is currently being sold online – then check out the Product Page
At the time of writing, this Ben Spies replica is not yet available for sale – but it can only be a matter of time before it hits the shops.
Until then, enjoy this video of the new 2011 MotoGP Ben Spies helmet. By the way, you can still get the 2010 Ben Spies MotoGP helmet
Let the video run a few seconds before the images start:
Video showing the RPS-10 Helmets and Ben Spies:
HJC Helmets state that Ben Spies brought “the attitude of a winner” to the development of the RPS-10 helmet. “Every RPS-10 bears Ben’s fingerprints,” according to HJC, “as his testing input literally helped form prototype designs into the helmet every rider can now wear.” The Ben Spies Limited Edition Replica RPS-10 will feature his specific graphics, as well as his signature.
“Each prototype was thoroughly evaluated, and with each successive iteration the design was tweaked and reshaped for reduced aerodynamic drag, maximum stability, minimum lift, minimum vibration and noise, and more. Based on these testing results the existing prototype would be revised and a next-generation prototype would then be designed and constructed, and the testing process resumed once again.”
Ben Spies is only the fourth rider in the history of AMA Superbike to win three consecutive titles and is 3rd on the all-time AMA Superbike wins list with a total of 28 AMA Superbike wins.
Spies races with HJC helmets – so HJC interviewed him after his championship winning 2009 World Superbike season. Spies talks abouts the ups and downs of the season, and fulfils his sponsorship obligations by giving his views on HJC helmets……..so not entirely unbiased 😉
