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, a 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: 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-year warranty from purchase date. 7-Year warranty from helmet manufacture date. Whichever comes first.
  • Snell 2010 and DOT Approved.

Top Notch

I sent this helmet back for Block Pass one only due to the size was wrong for my head. the only difference was the paint. When I got the right size we went riding in 91 degree weather and very humid and this helmet keep me cooler then any other I have ever used. Fit is tight but good. Might take you a while to save up for this helmet but I would highly recommend it,

Great Helmet

Is it worth the price? Yes. Great breathability, average in weight as there are lighter helmets. Much cooler than the HJC and seems to be holding up better too. I would expect this for the increased cost.

I have had the Shoei VFX-W for about three weeks now and have put about six rides on it. This is by far the lightest and most comfortable helmet I have ever worn. It looks amazing too. The build quality is definetly the highlight of this helmet. It is SOLID. Plus the airflow is awesome. I do not get nearly as hot in this helmet as I did with my old one. Overall this is a great helmet and I would definetly recommend this to anyone.

Back buying Shoei.

I have bought several Shoei helmets over the years, and were the only ones I would buy for a while. When the cheap Chinese helmet craze took off I have bought a couple as my last few helmets. After getting sick of a helmet so loose after a few months of use and sweat getting in my eyes I went back to Shoei. Can't believe what I have missed. Great comfort, style and craftsmanship. Watch the Youtube vid of them being made. The way all helmets should be made. Never going to trust my brain with any other brand, and Motosport hooked me up with a great price. Great to be back.

Shoei

I bought helmet for myself and turned around and bought one for my son if that tells how much liked it. The liner is easy to clean and reinstall and light weight. If you break down and buy high end helmet this is the one. Will buy another one.

Great sale price on the fancy paint job

This helmet fits my head like a glove and is also very comfortable. Super light! It also handles wind very well, when clicking along at 60 it doesn't feel like it wants to yank me off of the bike. I'm a new Shoei fan!

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.

My son's head circumference is 22.25 inches. Should I purchase a MED or SM?

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.

What year is this helmet?Manufactured when?

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.

The Snell rating shows 2005?
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

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.

Purchasing the proper size?
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?
MotoSport Staff
2 years ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
MotoSportExpert
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.

Shoeis sizing?
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
MotoSport Staff

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.

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.
