Product Description

Shoei Safety Helmet Corporation prides itself in producing the best helmets that technology will allow, and never before has that been more evident than with the all-new VFX-W. The absolute pinnacle of all 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, Shoei's professional racing team. Drenched with state-of-the-art new features, no stone was left unturned during its development. With safety, performance, comfort, and styling all critical factors, the VFX-W is perfect in every detail, as it ushers in the future of helmet technology with the type of quality that only Shoei is known for.

  • 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 chinbar.
  • 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.
  • DOT-218 and Snell M2005 approved.
  • Five-Year Warranty: Five-Year Warranty From Purchase Date. Seven-Year Warranty From Helmet Manufacture Date. Whichever comes first.

Amazing Helmet

There is not anything negative I can say about this helmet. It offers the best protection, comfort, and style. I have had a shoei for over 2 years now and on my last one had a pretty nasty crash resulting in a concussion. I sent the helmet back to the factory and received it in a timely manner along with a letter explaining the tests that were done to it and I could continue to use it safely. Of course it is pricey because you get what you pay for, and in my opinion you can't pay too much for something that protects your head!

What year is this helmet?Manufactured when?
3 months 27 days ago Location: York, PA, USA
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.

Unfortunately this is a discontinued helmet and the only sizes available are the ones listed.
Bitsy 4 months 20 days ago Location: Texas, USA
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
Over 8 months ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
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.
Elijah Over 9 months ago Location: Florida, USA
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
Over 9 months ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
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.
Over 9 months ago Location: Pooler, Ga
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.

What It Is

Regarded by many as the industry standard when it comes to helmets, the Shoei VFX-W boasts numerous innovative design features that make it one of the safest helmets in the business. The shell is manufactured out of a combination of fiberglass with organic fibers, while the dual-layer EPS liner helps to absorb impacts better. For added safety, the EPS is integrated into the chin bar. The liner is fully removable and designed to soak up sweat during hot days. Lastly, the cheek pads feature an Emergency Quick Release System that allows both cheek pads to drop out easily in the event of a nasty crash that requires the helmet to be removed.

Hits

We have long been huge fans of Shoei helmets, and the new VFX-W is no different. The quality and comfort is second to none, and the new graphics are some of the coolest on the market. Many of the members of the TWMX staff have crash tested the VFX-W and walked away safely, as the dual-layer EPS liner absorbs impacts well and the helmet as a whole can withstand quite a bit. I've also found that I can wear the VFX-W for long periods of time without pressure points or discomfort. As a small side note, I'm a big fan of many of the colorways, including the new Metal Mulisha (pictured here), and Kevin Windham replica designs.

Misses

The cheek pads tend to sit a little too far forward on my cheeks, however, I have become used to this.

The Verdict

For me, wearing a safe helmet is my number-one priority while riding, and the VFX-W is one of the safest you can buy. Highquality construction sets it apart from many of the helmets out there, making it one of the most well built pieces of head protection you can buy. On a regular basis, I only go to the track with my VFX-W.
