Born from Racing
“X-Series”― SHOEI’s full face helmet for Racing developed through World’s Top Road Races including MotoGP.
All of shell, shield, interiors and aero device are renewed by realizing safety in high level and utilizing most advanced know-how obtained from race support in top category. “REAL RACING SPEC” is truly brought into shape, X-Fourteen / X-Spirit III, the full face helmet to win races.
Brand new SHOEI top-of-the-line model starts racing in the world.
Study Racing Position, Increase Aero Dynamic Performance in High Speed
X-Fourteen / X-Spirit III, developed putting much value on the use at circuits, sets the position where a rider strongly leans forward as basic position. The shell is designed by analyzing the riding wind running from front part of a helmet to rear, and then to back of racing suit at the wind tunnel facility. The edges and shapes on surface of a shell, rear stabilizer equipping rear flaps exchangeable depending upon riding condition and lower air spoiler are designed and equipped to maximally increase aerodynamic performance. Comparing values in wind tunnel experiment with its predecessor, LIFT, DRAG and YAWING decreased by 3%, 10% and 50% respectively (value for reference measured by in-house facility). Greatly increased aerodynamic performance can do a lot to ease riders’ fatigue.
