Jonathan Rea’s Arai helmet after a high speed crash

Jonathan Rea suffered a high speed crash at Phillip Island during World Superbike testing – Rea highsided at turn 3 whilst going approximately 130mph. He was thrown from his bike (which burst into flames) and ploughed through the gravel. Watch the video of the crash below:

Afterwards, the guys from Arai capitalised on the marketing opportunity by cornering Rea and videoed the state of his helmet after the crash and got Rea to say a few words about Arai (Rea escaped with minor bruising).
