Arai celebrates the Manx GP with a limited-edition version of its flagship race helmet.
The Manx GP is an iconic event. It might not get quite the same love as the TT proper nowadays, but it should. That’s why it’s great to see this seriously cool bit of kit which commemorates its 100-year anniversary.
The lid’s a joint effort between thevisorshop.com and the Manx Grand Prix Motorcycle Club. And what an effort it is. Essentially, it’s a top-spec Arai RX7V Evo helmet (with ECE R22-06 approval) which pays homage to the Manx and the legendary 37.73 Mountain Course on which it’s been held since 1923.

Believe it or not, this is actually the first time there has been a helmet for the Manx Grand Prix – so this is a great chance to bag a piece of history and support a great cause in the process. We forgot to say… The Manx Motorcycle Club will receive a royalty from the sale of each limited-edition Manx GP lid. Nice.
If you’re interested and want to snag yourself one, they will be available from July 20 through thevisorshop.com and Crossan Motorcycles. You’d better get saving though, because one’ll set you back a whopping £829.99. It sounds like a lot – but actually the standard RX7V Evo is around £800. It’s a top bit of kit as is, but this one gets a funky design that celebrates one of the most memorable races and places on Earth.
