Shoei’s extensive experience in off-road helmet design and manufacturing has led to the creation of a new standard in off-road helmets, the VFX-W. The aggressive shell design allows for a lightweight off-road helmet that offers incredible protection, form-fitting comfort, cooling ventilation and components that are easy to care for.
Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) construction combines high performance fibers with organic fibers to create a shell structure that is lightweight, rigid and resilient
Four shell and five liner sizes present increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes
Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and rider testing
Front intake vents combine with rear vents and a neck outlet vent to maximize flow-through ventilation
Cool air passes through the front intake vents, cools the helmet interior and is exhausted through the rear vents by the force of negative air pressure
The helmet interior is constructed with a comfortable, Max-Dry material that absorbs and discharges moisture two times faster than traditional nylon
The 3D Max-Dry removable liner system is thermomolded to match the liner perfectly to the helmet interior
The cheek pads, upper liner and chinstrap covers are easily removed for cleaning and/or replacement
The removable cheek pads are available in optional sizes so that each rider can personalize their fit
Aggressively shaped Sleek Visor provides incredible airflow for reduced drag
Sleek visor is easily installed or removed with the use of three external screws for ease of access to center screw and tightening by hand
No-clog Sleek Mouthpiece for enhanced flow-through ventilation
Removable, washable and replaceable Sleek Mouthpiece filter
Matte black anti-reflection for underside of visor is included (white and graphic models only)
Unique chin strap clip keeps strap from flapping in the wind
Ergonomically shaped mud guard
Helmet sack constructed of soft, velvety fabric with drawstring closure
Helmet fits good and only took a couple of rides to break-in.

Don't skimp on your head!
Great helmet - I've used a Shoei Hornet for years so went with their dirt helmet. A MUCH better fit and feel than the others I've tried. I guess you get what you pay for...

Overall great helmet
Purchased this helmet in the fall and love it. I have had aria and shoie street helmets in the past and recently got into dirt. This helmet is great and fits amazing. The lining is fully removable to clean after a long day in the dirt. The mouth guard has a removable filter to help keep dust and dirt out of your mouth. And the airflow is great. Couldn't be happier with this helmet.

I received this helmet the other day. Road at 70+/- degree weather for 1.5 hours. I adjusted to the new helmet instantly, it is light (considering the protection it provides) and has great ventilation. I am just over 78cm which is between sizes, I chose a medium and it is a perfect fit (tight at first and then just the right snugness after being broken in around the house).

i love this helmet and it fit your head like a glove. it fits so good its hard to get on and off. i love the styling and the "paint" too. there are only two small problems that i would like to address.
1. the "paint" is actually like really high quality stickers that get clear coated on to the helmet and you can slightly see the excess sticker that is suppose to blend with the actual shell color. the stickers on mine were applied crooked along the top vents but if you don't really pay attention its unnoticeable.
2. i wish it had the protection of a 6d helmet with the rubber bushings in between the foam pads for extra protection but then again the shoei is less than $500 and the 6d is $750.
overall i would definitely buy another one if i grow out of mine or want a new one because of the helmets age. i respect shoies quality and superior look. i would invest in a high quality helmet because even a expensive $500 helmet is cheaper that head surgery ;]

Great commuting helmet
This has become my goto hot/warm weather helmet for commuting through the city. Very light, good ventilation, great vision and comfortable. I switch to a warmer full face in the colder weather.
