The flagship model of Shoei’s premium helmet lineup, the X-Series, now welcomes the all-new X-Fourteen as the next generation helmet. Developed using rider input, careful consideration was given to every detail of the new X-Fourteen.

The X-Fourteen’s aerodynamic profile has been meticulously crafted to enhance high-speed stability while reducing drag and the negative forces that can inhibit a rider’s performance on race day. The ventilation performance of the X-Fourteen is second to none, and features an all-new cheek pad cooling system.

In addition to innovative cooling properties, the new 3D Max-Dry Custom Interior System not only allows the rider to customize the fit, but the all-new, patent-pending rotating liner components enable riders to adjust the position/angle of the helmet by up to 4-degrees to increase the upper field of vision while tucked in extreme racing positions.

The X-Fourteen showcases an all-new shell shape along with a completely redesigned Rear Stabilizer. The patent-pending Rear Stabilizer system features a standard set of Rear Flaps that can be replaced with an optional, narrower set of flaps to help fine-tune resistance and aerodynamic performance depending on rider preference and track demands.

In addition, strategically placed ridges along the top of the shell and chin bar allow wind to stream off the helmet with minimal resistance, ultimately reducing drag and improving stability. Add to the mix a removable Lower Air Spoiler that can be affixed to the chin-bar to further improve aerodynamic stabilization, and you’re left with the new standard of high-speed performance.

Boasting six (6) air intakes and six (6) exhaust outlets-all strategically shaped and located to maximize airflow and negative air pressure suction to the rear of the helmet, the X-Fourteen’s ventilating prowess is second to none.

The X-Fourteen’s all-new cheek pad cooling system delivers refreshing air to the rider’s cheek area thanks to channels cut through the EPS liner and corresponding air holes located in the cheek pad foam. Combined with the newly positioned side air outlets (moved rearward to optimize hot air expulsion), the X-Fourteen’s ventilation system cools and clears warm, humid air from the rider’s face with great efficiency.

The X-Fourteen’s CWR-F race shield provides a vast field of vision that today’s top racers demand. In addition to protecting against 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays, the CWR-F shield offers a distortion-free view throughout the entire range thanks to Shoei’s 3D injection-molding process. Additionally, innovative ribs on the top and bottom edge of the shield improve rigidity and eliminate the bending effect that may occur from wind pressure during high-speed riding, and the all-new double shield locking mechanism prevents unwanted shield opening in the event of an accident.

The CWR-F race shield also features Shoei’s exclusive, patent-pending Vortex Generators, which effectively reduce air friction and improve airflow around the helmet’s surface. CWR-F race shields provide a flat surface to accommodate racing tearoffs, and the newly designed tearoff posts allow for tension to be adjusted without tools for a quick and easy installation.

Coupled with the CWR-F race shield, the X-Fourteen’s innovative QR-E base plate system facilitates quicker shield changes than ever before. Once a shield is installed, the strengthened spring-loaded base plates pull the shield back against the dual-lip, dual-layered window beading to ensure a wind and waterproof seal with each and every closure.

The X-Fourteen’s Dual-Layer, Multi-Density EPS liner not only provides enhanced impact absorption by utilizing varying densities of foam in key areas around the rider’s head, it is designed to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS, further enhancing the X-Fourteen’s superior ventilation characteristics. In addition to enhanced impact absorption and ventilation, the precise placement of multi-density EPS liner material yields a more compact, lightweight design.

The X-Fourteen is equipped with a fully removable, washable, replaceable and adjustable 3D Max-Dry Custom Interior System. Shoei’s exclusive Max-Dry liner material absorbs and dissipates sweat and moisture twice as fast as traditional nylon interiors, and in combination with the X-Fourteen’s superior ventilation system, keeps racers and aggressive riders alike cool and dry during intense riding sessions. The all-new, innovative cheek pad cooling system delivers refreshing air to the rider’s cheek area thanks to channels cut through the EPS liner and air holes strategically located in several areas of the foam.

The 3D center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider’s head, allowing for an extremely comfortable fit while maintaining the firm hold necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding. Additionally, the X-Fourteen’s 3D Max-Dry Custom Interior System allows riders the opportunity to replace each section of the center pad with optional sizes for a completely customizable fit.

Perhaps the star of the X-Fourteen’s 3D Max-Dry Custom Interior System, however, the all-new, patent-pending rotating liner components allow riders to adjust the position/angle of the helmet by up to 4-degrees to increase the upper field of vision while tucked in extreme racing positions.
