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.

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.
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.
looks good and it fits amazing
Bought this helmet for my12 yo son. It is great and easy to clean.
great helmet and great service. I just picked the wrong size.
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!
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.
Best helment I have ever owned!!
The VFX helmets are awesome this will be my third one if that tells you anything!
Excellent helmet. Motosport always has what we need and a good price with quick shipping
Quality and comfort is second to none.
and I don't regret listening to her. It fits my head perfectly, it's breathe-ability is unmatched and I can't wait for summer. Shoei #1 in my book.
its been way to long since I've had a new helmet. Love the fit. Having the ear holes is super nice. Great air flow through the helmet.
Ordered the wrong size. Replacement showed up in two days quick, easy and free. Highly recommended and I'm going to shop here more often.
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.
Shoei VFX-W I notice a big different in weight and airflow .. wish I had bought Shoei years ago my option it's well worth the extra money to buy
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.
Shoei helmets are definitely the best helmets made. Well worth the money.
