Shoei Inside

With so many helmet options available to the motocross and off-road riding and racing communities, SHOEI takes great pride in the fact that more top riders prefer the groundbreaking VFX-W over all others. The absolute pinnacle of off-road helmets, the VFX-W is the result of countless hours of conceptualization, R&D, and testing with the most hard-nosed critics of all, our professional racing team. With top pros like Kevin Windham, Josh Grant, Josh Strang, and Destry Abbott leading the charge, the VFX-W is drenched in state-of-the-art features, and absolutely no stone was left unturned during its development. If you’re looking for a new lid to hit the track or trail, look no further.

AIM+ Shell Construction (Snell M2010-Approved)

Shoei's proprietary AIM+ technology. This process combines fiberglass with organic fibers that are so strong that they can only be cut with a laser. The end result is a stronger, lighter shell that will absorb and distribute the force of an impact safely and efficiently.

Dual-Layer EPS Liner
  • Dual layer liner yields enhanced impact absorption by adjusting thickness and density in key areas
  • Inner liner features air channels for efficient cooling
  • Impact-absorbing EPS liner throughout the entire chin bar

V-430 "Sleek" Visor
  • Developed by Shoei’s sponsored riders
  • Lengthened for additional protection from sun and roost
  • Adjustment slot lengthened for greater versatility
  • Plastic hardware is utilized for easier visor breakaway during impact
  • Includes a matte black strip to reduce glare

3D Max-Dry Liner System
  • Polyurethane foam pads are three dimensionally formed for a perfect fit
  • Proprietary synthetic fiber absorbs and exhausts sweat 2X faster than conventional nylon
  • Liner is removable, adjustable, and washable

Emergency Quick Release System (EQRS)
  • Mechanical tabs disengage cheek pads for easy removal by emergency medical personnel
  • Helmet can be removed with minimum load to rider in emergency situations

Ventilation System
  • Improved air intakes are located in mouthpiece, forehead, and through scoops directing air into EPS liner
  • Seven exhaust ports dispel hot air from the rear of the helmet
  • Vent openings are covered by wire mesh to prevent dirt from entering liner

"Sleek" Mouthpiece
  • Wire mesh screen helps prevent roost from entering the mouthpiece
  • A strip of AIM+ shell material reinforces mesh screen and helps to reduce chances of larger intrusions
  • Sleek mouthpiece directs cooling air through a removable and washable foam filter
5-Year Warranty
  • 5-Y

As opposed to “passive safety” that is ensured by compliance with Snell and DOT safety standards, “active safety” defines the further improvements made by SHOEI to ensure that maximum comfort is achieved, allowing the rider to devote all of his or her focus to riding. Advanced helmet features such as our anatomically-shaped comfort liner for optimum helmet fitment, lowest possible weight to reduce stress on the neck muscles, and effective ventilation system for temperature regulation and reduction in wind noises all serve to further improve the safety of the rider. Further development and continued improvement in the areas of safety and comfort technology are SHOEI’s primary goals.

THE INTERACTION BETWEEN COMFORT AND PROPER FIT

The material and shape of the comfort liner are critical factors for the overall wearing comfort and proper fit of the helmet. The wearing comfort covers the effect of the material properties on the skin of the rider. The fit defines how well the helmet sits on the head and stays in place, which is especially noticeable at high speeds. In the past, these two criteria often worked against one another. Very thick, soft padding provided good wearing comfort, but it did not hold well at high speeds, leading to helmet buffeting and instability.

OPTIMIZATION OF PADDING COVER MATERIALS
fabrics

The development of new high-performance fabrics allows for greater sweat absorption and dissipation, yielding a proprietary sweat absorbing material that greatly improves rider comfort. These materials (first researched and developed in motocross and road racing where the amount of physical exertion and hence the production of sweat is extremely high) are now production features in several of SHOEI’s helmet models.

 
IMPROVED SAFETY THROUGH LIGHTER HELMETS

Three factors are crucial for the weight of the helmet as perceived by the rider. The actual weight that is felt by wearing the helmet, the felt weight, and the dynamic weight, which is produced by the wind resistance and inertia. The actual weight has a direct influence on the acceleration forces and directly stresses the neck muscles in the event of an accident.

 
IMPROVED SAFETY THROUGH LIGHTER HELMETS

The heaviest part of a helmet is the helmet shell, which is of special importance when making a light helmet. Since the shell is also the part of the helmet that is the most stressed in the event of an impact, the requirements concerning the manufacturing of a light helmet shell are correspondingly high. Through its extensive experience in the processing of fiber compound materials, SHOEI has succeeded in developing the extremely resistant and lightweight AIM and AIM+ helmet shells.
