Product: 2018 Shoei VFX-WR helmet

All-new model features exclusive Motion Energy Distribution System.

Shoei has launched its all-new dirt bike helmet, the VFX-WR, with the first colour-ways due to arrive locally in Australian during the middle stages of this month and boasting the brand’s exclusive Motion Energy Distribution System (M.E.D.S).

Fully-loaded with next-level performance, safety and style, the VFX-WR’s M.E.D.S technology is strategically engineered to reduce rotational acceleration energy to the head in the event of an accident.

The new VFX-WR has been completely redesigned and re-engineered without sacrificing an ounce of the quality and performance that have given Shoei riders championship-winning confidence for decades, defining performance off-road helmets.

Aside from M.E.D.S, its safety features include a unique six-layer multi-ply matrix AIM+ shell construction, as well as a dual-layer, multi-density EPS liner, a material which is also utilised through the entire chin bar surrounding the advanced mouthpiece for enhanced impact absorption. It also has 16 intake and exhaust vents, wind-tunnel tested and aerodynamic in its development.

The high-tech 3D max-dry interior is fully-removable, washable and replaceable, while the large eye-port rovides a massive peripheral field of vision and is suited to oversized goggle fitment. Its V-470 visor is easily adjustable and the polycarbonate screws are capable of shearing off during impact to reduce forces. You’ll also benefit from the Emergency Quick Release System.

The Solid White (RRP $799.90), Matt Black (RRP $849.90), three-colour Zinger Graphic (RRP $999.90) and four-colour Glaive Graphic (RRP $999.90) will all be available mid-March, while the two-colour Blazon Graphic (RRP $999.90) and Josh Grant Replica (RRP $1049.90) are expected to land mid-April.
