Shoei’s VFX-W Sweeps the GNCC Podium!
Suzuki’s Josh Strang led a Shoei sweep of the podium at the Pirelli Big Buck GNCC. Strang finished just seconds ahead of Kawasaki’s Paul Whibley. Third place went to early race leader Charlie Mullins. Fellow Shoei rider Thad Duval came home in fifth. Only 4th place Nate Kanney broke up the Shoei party at the front! Whibley currently leads the series, followed by Mullins. Looks like if you want to win in the woods, there’s only one helmet to wear! The VFX-W was designed to work well for off road riders. External plastic vent covers have been removed entirely to prevent breakage, and Shoei specs all of it’s offroad helmets with plastic visor screws to make it easier for the visor to break away in the event of a crash or collision with a tree branch. This can help prevent your neck from being jerked back violently. Just ask all of the top off road riders in the country which helmet they choose!
