SHOEI exclusively uses fibre-reinforced plastics that offer the best properties for the manufacture of a helmet shell. Thanks to having many years of experience and highly specialised employees, SHOEI is in a position to produce helmet shells that are extremely strong and yet light. Each helmet shell is marked personally by the employee who is responsible for it and thus puts his name on the line for the quality of this example.
Advanced Interior Padding
SHOEI helmets are comfortable, even at extreme speeds: This means that the padding must fit snuggly around your head, without ever feeling unpleasant. At the same time, the bottom of our interiors have no rims and no overlapping parts. This prevents turbulence and noise. For our top class models, we took perfection one step further and designed the entire interior to be detachable. You can replace it in seconds, and you can choose between 7 different cheek pad sizes – what you get is a tailor-fit helmet, taking comfort to the maximum!
Ventilation is more effective if the air has a way out. That is why SHOEI helmets do not only have effective intakes, but also devices through which hot air can leave the helmet. In the case of our top models, these are the Aero-Vortex-Ventilations. With their characteristic V-shape, they create negative pressure making use of the riding windstream. Warm air from the rider´s head is actively drawn out of the helmet.
The Sightlation System
All SHOEI full face helmets use a sophisticated ventilation intake below the shield window, which serves a double function: It supplies fresh breathing air to the rider, but also steers an airflow along the inside of the shield. This helps to keep the shields dry and clear of fog.
