WHEN you’re riding at almost 220mph then your helmet is going to need all the stability it can get, which is why we were intrigued to see a new spoiler system on MotoGP star Cal Crutchlow’s Arai helmet.

Riding at the Bennetts Ultimate Track Day, Crutchlow said the see-through plastic spoiler aids stability at high speed. Look closely and you can see the see-through plastic lump stuck to the front of his lid. We reckon it must be the new must-fit item for MotoGP fans on their road-going helmets.

Sadly the parts are only available to MotoGP heroes at the moment but we can only imagine Arai will make it available to us at some point next year. Okay, so we may not need high speed stability on the way to work, but if it’s good enough for Crutchlow, it’s good enough for us.
