Continued Excellence

As a formerly avid rider who has taken a many-year break, my re-entry into the sport demanded some upgraded gear. With an array of fancy new helmet brands like 6D and options like MIIPS, buying a new helmet can be intimidating. Having tried on several helmets and even having the chance to look up close and personal at some trade shows, I guess sometimes you just can't teach an old dog new tricks. No matter how many helmets I tried on (Bell, Fox, 6D, etc), I always came back to Shoei and Arai as the ultimate in comfort for my particular head shape. For me, the deciding factor was that Motorsport had this Shoei at an incredible price and while I have never gone for a helmet with graphics this "loud", in person, the attention to detail and quality in the overall helmet and graphics is absolutely unreal! I couldn't be more happy and I should expect no less from Shoei. Everything about this helmet is pure luxury and I rated it perfect in every category except for weight only because I tried on a really light helmet from Suomy which was like a feather. BUT, this helmet is in no way a heavyweight and seems in the range comparable to everything else I tried on. And further, when you add up the perfect fit (I have always worn size Medium in Shoei, Arai, Fox, etc - and this size medium is nails), great feel and quality from the graphics, nose piece and even how the inner liner pulls out and attaches, this helmet is a winner and was a great value at Motosport.

Awesome helmet but plastic screws for visor?

Spare no expense on a great helmet.. its your head for God's sake.. the vfx-w is a great helmet. follow sizing chart. only issue was I did not understand the plastic screws that hold the visor on.. seems to cheapen a bit but then again ...there may be a reason for them.

Shoei VFX-W Helmet

First time I spent this kind of money on a helmet. Really nice helmet, but tight in the cheeks & the rubber mud guard sometimes touches my nose. I guess you can buy some thinner cheek pads, but for this kind of cash you really shouldn't need to spend extra money to make the helmet fit right.

Great helmet for $35!

Looks like carbon fiber. Fits well, seems pretty well made. Cant beat it for the price. Only concern is the plastic screws that hold the visor on feel like they might come out or break but so far so good!

Awesome helmet

I'm an Arai guy but this Shoei is a gorgeous helmet. Reminds me of why I wore Shoei helmets for so many years. Light, flawlessly constructed, supremely comfortable. No regrets.

Shoei VFX-W Helmet

Very good product, much better than the cheap stuff you can buy at your local bike shop. This helment offers superior protection than most brands. And when you are out riding trails and you have pines and oaks blazing by you at 30 40 mph or at the track topping a 120 ft table top into a turn with 20 bikes behind you at least you know your knoggin will be all right.

Great Helmet at a Fantastic Price

I normally wear Arai helmets, but I have had great experience with Shoei and the look and price of this helmet was too good to pass up. It matches my 2009 Husky perfectly and is a top shelf product. Looks a lot better than the picture on the email.

A: We have a sizing chart listed online for Shoei Helemts on the product page. Fox will have a very similar size, but again refer to that to help with your sizing. We are constantly working to get more size charts added to our site. Sizing can vary between manufacturers so if you have specific questions please call one of our sales professionals.

A: I would recommend going with a size small helmet. Keep in mind that the padding will break in a little and you definitely don't want the helmet too big. Also, we have a great return policy if you need to go with the next size up.

Q: What year is this helmet?Manufactured when?
2 years 9 months ago
Oldguy
2 years 9 months ago Location: York, PA, USA
A: Got mine last week (December 12, 2013). Made in 1/2012 with 2010 SNELL approval. So it may have been sitting for a year and you should replace a helmet every 5 years unless you had a hard hit them replace it. But for the price I lose 1 maybe 2 years of use I am personally fine with for the price I spent. Sort of pro rating the price based on
the manufacture date.

Is this a typo as it shows 2005 on the listing? Did not think this model was produced until couple years ago could you please clarify.Even though its new I dont want to give up warranty period. Thank You

A: This helmet meets the Snell 2005 rating. This does not mean the helmet was manufactured at this time, but the ratings for which it was certified were created in 2005. This helmet is a 2012 model year helmet.

Q: Purchasing the proper size?
Over 3 years ago
If I want to purchase this helmet for my son who is 9 yrs. old and have it last for a while, should I purchase the next size up from what he currently is? Is there additional padding that I can buy to allow a larger size to fit him now?
MotoSportExpert
MotoSport Staff
Over 3 years ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
A: You will not want to buy a helmet that is too large. That can actually cause a worse injury and runs a higher risk of being pulled off of the riders head in the event of a fall. Depending what size you get you may be able to buy padding, but Shoei uses 4 shell size. XS, SM would share the same helmet shell and you could make the XS helmet a little larger by purchasing the small padding.

Q: Shoeis sizing?
Over 3 years ago
Do all shoei helmets have the same shell. And I could just change the padding for it to fit. An would a meduim be able to fit a adult small
MotoSportExpert
MotoSport Staff
Over 3 years ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
A: They do have have multiple shell sizes for Shoei Helmets. They use 4 different shells with their helmet. XS, is one shell, S,M is another. Large has it's own shell. XL & XXL share the same shell. You could use small padding in the medium helmet to convert it to a small.
shawmoto23
Over 3 years ago Location: Pooler, Ga
A: Shoei helmets are custom made to the size you wear. So if you have a small head a larger helmet wouldn't work. All the shell sizes are different and you can't purchase thicker padding. Hope this answered your question.
