250 Supercross Champ Justin Barcia Signs with AraiArai Helmet News

Arai Helmet, Inc., has signed on Justin “Bam Bam” Barcia, who will wear Arai helmets in both AMA Supercross and Motocross 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.
