AMA SBK Champion Josh Hayes Receives One-Off Arai “Jolly Roger” Helmet

Arai presents special edition “Jolly Roger” carbon Corsair-V RC to four-time AMA Superbike champion Josh Hayes

In celebration of Monster Graves Yamaha’s Josh Hayes winning his fourth AMA Superbike title, Arai Helmet Inc. has presented Hayes with a one-off, special edition of its ultra-high-end Corsair-V RC (Racing Carbon) helmet. Hayes clinched the 2014 title in dominating fashion, winning both Superbike races this past weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

The special-order-only Corsair-V RC utilizes a carbon fiber shell based on Arai’s Formula One helmets, and retails for $3,995.95 in clear coat only or $4,295.95 for race replicas. The version presented to Hayes is even more exclusive, featuring the original rendition of Hayes’ popular “Jolly Roger” graphic scheme.   A native of Gulfport, Mississippi, Hayes has won all of his major championships wearing Arai helmets, including three consecutive AMA Superbike titles from 2010 to 2012, the 2006 and 2007 AMA Formula Xtreme championships and the 2003 AMA Superstock title.   “Josh is truly one of the greats in U.S. motorcycle road racing,” said Jeff Weil, Arai North America Race Support Manager. “On top of being a world-class racing talent, he has also been an outstanding steward of the Arai brand. We wanted to present Josh with a fitting gift to celebrate his latest title, and we think the Jolly Roger Corsair-V RC certainly fits the bill!”
