The SHOEI VFX-W's industry-leading ventilation system features
improved air intakes located in the chin bar, forehead, and through
scoops built into the helmet's liner. The Dual Layer, Dual Density EPS
Liner that makes up the VFX-W's inner core features channels that route
cooling air over the top of the rider's head for more efficient temperature
control. With seven exhaust ports pulling hot, moist air off the rider's head
and dispelling it from the rear of the helmet, the VFX-W's ventilation
system is second to none!
Utilizing a proprietary synthetic fiber that absorbs and dissipates sweat 2X faster than conventional Nylon, the VFX-W's 3D Max-Dry Liner System has redefined what a helmet's interior should achieve. Add to the mix SHOEI's usage of multi-density polyurethane foam pads that are three-dimensionally formed for an anatomical fit, and you're left with the most comfortable, functional liner system on the planet! Oh, and did we mention that it's fully removable, adjustable, and washable?
Balanced weight distribution and comfort are two must-have features if you're looking for a more pleasurable, potentially faster riding and racing experience. We've often been told by our professional team riders that the most comfortable helmet of all is the one that you forget is on your head. Enter the VFX-W. Combined with SHOEI's lightweight AIM+ shell construction that incorporates fiberglass with high performance organic materials for the best level of performance possible, the VFX-W utilizes four different shell sizes and the best liner on earth to give you the distraction-free ride you've been waiting for!
Fine-tuned by SHOEI's professional team riders, the V-430 “Sleek” Visor featured on the VFX-W is the most progressive and functional visor SHOEI has ever produced. Not only was it lengthened for additional protection from the sun and roost during grueling outdoor motocross and off-road races, we've also increased the range of adjustability to provide a greater field of vision when it's safe to raise the visor above your line of sight. Plastic hardware is utilized for proper breakaway and safety during impact, and the included matte black strip can be affixed to further reduce glair during the brilliant midday light.
Behind a stainless steel mesh screen that's been appointed the task of preventing roost from entering the VFX-W's “Sleek” Mouthpiece, a strip of AIM+ shell material is in place to prevent larger intrusions. Backed by a removable, washable foam filter that allows cooling air through while trapping fine silt and dust, the mouthpiece on the new VFX-W does its job with authority!
