The name SHOEI has long been synonymous with "premium" in the motorcycle helmet market - a credential that hundreds of loyal men and women in their Japan factories wear with great pride. The evolution and production of their world-class helmet line is a meticulous process that combines the very latest in technology with consumer feedback, modern testing practices, advanced materials, and over 50 years of helmet building experience. Just like the very first SHOEI helmet built by their founder back in 1959, every SHOEI today is still handmade in Japan utilizing a sophisticated process that involves over 50 people for each and every helmet.
Aerodynamic Shell Design:
Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing and professional riders' feedback.
Dual-layer multi-density EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation.
Four shell and EPS liner sizes present increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes.
Two upper air intake vents are positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior; hot air is exhausted through top outlet for a more comfortable ride.
Lower intake vent absorbs air exhaled from the mouth to help eliminate shield fogging.
Breath guard and chin curtain included.
Lightweight, Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+):
High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers into shell construction for a structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid, and resilient.
3D Custom Interior System:
The entire interior lining (cheek pads, upper liner, and chin strap covers) can be removed for cleaning, center and cheek pads can be replaced with optional thicknesses for a customizable fit.
E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from an injured riders helmet, enabling the helmet to be more easily removed from the head.
Extra comfort provided by removable ear pads, breath guard, and chin curtain.
Neatly secures chin strap.
CWR-1 Shield and QR-E System:
CWR-1 shield features ribs along the top and bottom to improve rigidity and eliminate bending from wind pressure during opening and closing.
Improved window beading features dual-layered dual lip construction that ensures a windproof and waterproof seal with every closure.
Locking mechanism easily engages the shield lock when fully closed.
Pinlock pins and EVO fog-resistant lens insert included.
Spring-loaded base plates offer quick shield changes.
Five-stage rotating dial allows fine tuning of the base plate for easy shield adjustments.
QR-E closure system allows for tool-less shield removal and installation, and provides an air-tight seal intended to significantly minimize wind noise.
Five-Year Warranty: Five-Year warranty from purchase date. Seven-year warranty from helmet manufacture date. Whichever comes first.
