ALL HELMETS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL Everything we do at SHOEI begins with our passion for riding. Through our intense commitment to innovate, we have protected several generations of championship-caliber racers on the track, while at the same time enhancing the way everyday riders enjoy motorcycling. With a world-class team of designers and engineers leading the charge, SHOEI utilizes its 60-year wealth of knowledge, state-of-the-art facilities, proprietary materials, and the industry’s most stringent quality assurance practices during the development of every helmet. All SHOEI helmets are handmade, utilizing proven, meticulous manufacturing techniques that involve over 50 people during the production of each helmet. Throughout this intricate process, 100% of SHOEI shells must pass four rigorous inspections to ensure proper construction, thickness, weight, and surface condition. Each approved shell is then given an official stamp by an inspector along the way. SHOEI PREMIUM HELMETS: Hand-built in Japan to the most demanding standards in the world.

SHOEI ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

58 SHOEI ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY | RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT | PRODUCT DESIGN


RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT The many essential stages of R&D throughout new helmet production are vast and comprehensive, but none are as informative as the use of SHOEI’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel. Motorcyclists live in a stream of moving air, making SHOEI's in-house wind tunnel an integral tool during design and development. In addition to noise reduction technology and shell aerodynamics, the aerodynamic efficiency of spoilers and vents are also analyzed during SHOEI's extensive wind tunnel testing practices. The result: every SHOEI helmet boasts an incredibly sleek design that increases airflow, reduces noise, buffeting and lift, and ultimately enhances the overall comfort and performance of your ride. An integral feature refined during the R&D process, SHOEI's ventilation systems direct cooling air in through the front of the helmet, and utilize key areas of low air pressure to the rear of the helmet to draw warm, damp air through its exhaust outlets. Along with the perfect shape and placement of vent intakes and outlets, the air channels in SHOEI's unique Dual-Layer EPS Liner systems are a significant contributor to our helmets’ world-class ventilation characteristics.

PRODUCT DESIGN At SHOEI, the helmet design process is a carefully considered, meticulous journey headed up by a world-class team of creative minds. Often beginning with market research and input from our expert testing staff to identify what riders require to better their helmet and riding experience, SHOEI designers then set out to innovate and evolve design and functionality to the next level. Form, function, and overall styling are all important qualities, but it’s safety that reigns supreme during the design of every SHOEI product. Striving to maintain consistency between their initial aspirational concepts and the actual, finished production line products, SHOEI’s design team sees the entire development process through to ensure that their visions are fully realized.

SHOEI-HELMETS.COM 59


BORN FROM RACING SHOEI prides itself in building the very best helmets that our state-of-the-art design and manufacturing technologies will allow, but we also maintain the core belief that good old fashioned field research yields the highest performing, most functional helmets producible. SHOEI helmets are the result of countless hours of conceptualization and R&D within our high-tech facilities, but equally as important is the time spent testing with the most hardcore critics of them all—our professional racing team. Our international MotoGP and Motocross race teams put our helmets through the ringer, resulting in the fine-tuned masterpieces that await you in this catalog.

QUALITY MADE IN JAPAN

PRODUCTION & QUALITY ASSURANCE

LASER CUTTING

SHELL MOLDING TECHNOLOGY

For all the energy and passion invested into the design and development of a product, the same level of care and due diligence must be achieved during the production process. A number of unique, state-of-the-art processes combine to yield the unrivaled quality that only SHOEI helmets are known for, and each helmet must pass several rigorous inspections throughout production before being awarded with the famous SHOEI hexagon.

Robotically controlled lasers give each helmet its final shape by cutting off protrusions created during the shell molding process, as well as creating the openings for eye and ventilation ports. Once this process is complete, all helmets are thoroughly inspected to ensure proper material thickness and weight before moving on to the next phase of manufacturing.

SHOEI's proprietary AIM (Advanced Integrated Matrix) and AIM+ shell molding technology integrates a multi-ply matrix of handlaid interwoven layers of fiberglass with organic fibers and resin. Together, these materials combine to maximize strength and elasticity in a strong yet lightweight shell, and each is personally marked by the technician responsible for it to further endorse the quality of every helmet.

PAINTING & GRAPHIC APPLICATION

FIT & COMFORT

FINAL ASSEMBLY

SHOEI's intricate painting and graphics application procedures are second to none. Combining handwork with state-of-the-art automation processes to ensure optimal quality, each helmet boasts a premium painted finish and hand-applied decals before being sealed and protected with several quality layers of clearcoat. Each and every SHOEI helmet receives up to five layers of paint before final assembly.

SHOEI knows that one size does not fit all, which is why we offer an industry-leading number of shell sizes, as well as various liner sizes and cheek pad thicknesses to ensure a customizable fit for each and every rider. Along with extensive research on head shapes and sizes, SHOEI incorporates a mix of exclusive comfort and performance features into the construction of every helmet. Groundbreaking components like our 3D Max-Dry Interior Systems, 3D-shaped center pads to match the contours of a rider’s head, fully removable, washable and replaceable liner systems, multi-layer cheek pads, eyeglass channels, and integrated neck pads accentuate the impeccable comfort packages exclusive only to SHOEI helmets.

A critical step in the manufacturing process, final helmet assembly is done with care and precision, including the installation of ventilation sliders, shield seals, impact absorbing EPS liners, and comfort interiors. Each helmet passes a detailed final inspection before being passed on to the consumer. This strict compliance with the production processes and associated quality control standards guarantee the consistently high quality of a SHOEI helmet.

CHIN CURTAIN

SHOEI's 3D Max-Dry interior is a high-performance system featuring proprietary Max-Dry material, proven to absorb and dissipate sweat 2X faster than nylon. Pulling moisture away from the skin results in a cooler, dryer riding and racing experience. Our Max-Dry liners are 3D-shaped to match the contours of a rider’s head, yielding our most comfortable fit ever.

SHOEI's Multi-Layer Cheek Pads combine varying foam densities to find the perfect balance between comfort and helmet stabilization. Variable thickness cheekpads are available for custom fitting.

SHOEI riders who wear eyeglasses or sunglasses will enjoy the extra comfort yielded from these specially designed channels in our cheek pads—the most efficient method for relieving pressure created by eyeglass arms in the temple area.

By rerouting the rider’s breath to reduce shield fogging, the removable breath guard (standard on all SHOEI full-face road helmets) further enhances our legendary air control system.

Standard on many SHOEI helmet models, the chin curtain can be inserted into the lower edge of the chin bar to reduce wind turbulence and noise.

How To Measure Your Head Size

No helmet can protect the wearer against all unforeseeable highand low-speed impacts. However, to help maximize head protection, the helmet must fit properly, and the retention system must be securely fastened under the chin. Failure to ride with a proper fitting helmet and securely fastened chinstrap is dangerous, as the helmet could come off during an accident, resulting in severe head trauma or death.

1. To determine where you fall on SHOEI's sizing chart (as a starting point for proper helmet fit), pass a soft, flexible tape measure horizontally around your head at a height of approximately one inch (2.5cm) above your eyebrows (the largest measurement around your forehead).

To determine the proper helmet fit and learn how to safely secure your chinstrap retention system, we recommend viewing SHOEI's “Helmet Fit” video at www.shoei-helmets.com/helmetfit, or consult with an authorized SHOEI dealer today. Proper fit is important not only for comfort, but for safety, as well.

SHOEI offers a full line of replaceable cheek pads and center pads in varying thicknesses for most of our street and off-road helmets. Once you’ve found a SHOEI helmet that fits comfortably around the crown of your head, you can easily finetune the overall fit by changing to one of our optional cheek pad and/or center pad sizes. Please visit our online store at shoei-helmets.com to view a full list of options.
