Since 1959 Shoei has been innovating, winning awards and providing riders around the world with some of the highest quality helmets on the road.
Offering a full line of street and off-road helmets, as well as the modular Neotec Helmet, Shoei is credited with developing the first helmet designed specifically for super motard / dual sport riding: the Shoei Hornet DS. Shoei was also the first helmet to use carbon fiber, kevlar and dual liners for ventilation, strength and versatility. One of the staples of this technology was the Shoei RF-1100 that ran from 2010 to 2014, however, in late 2013 the Shoei RF-1200 was added to the lineup to replace it. Also released in 2010, but still a currently supported model, the Shoei Qwest Helmet uses the more updated standards of shell consctruction, ventilation, and comfort.
Every Shoei helmet sold by RevZilla is US DOT approved. All current model full face Shoei street bike helmets are also Snell M2010 approved. Shoei motorcycle helmets typically have an intermediate oval shape which fits most riders well including the new Shoei GT-Air Helmet with its updated design. Also keep a lookout for the Shoei J-Cruise Helmet open face. The J-Cruise Helmet was released in late 2012, accompaying the RJ Platinum-R in Shoei's open-face selection.
