Shoei VFX-W Maelstrom Helmet

Shoei’s extensive experience in off-road helmet design and manufacturing led to the creation of a new standard in off-road helmets, the Shoei 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. With top pros like Kevin Windham, Josh Grant, Josh Strang, and Destry Abbott leading the charge, the VFX-W is drenched in state-of-the-art features, and absolutely no stone was left unturned during its development. If you’re looking for a new lid to hit the track or trail, look no further.

Features:

  • 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
  • Helmet interior constructed with a comfortable Max-Dry material that absorbs and discharges moisture two times faster than traditional nylon
  • 3D Max-Dry removable liner system is thermomolded to match the liner perfectly to the helmet interior
  • Cheek pads, upper liner and chin strap covers are easily removed for cleaning and replacement
  • Removable cheek pads are available in additional 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 mouthpiece filter
  • Matte black anti-reflection for underside of visor 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
  • DOT and Snell M2015

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

Get what you pay for
I've rode Shoei for as long as I've been throwing a leg over a bike. They are expensive but you truthfully get what you pay for. I recently had a gnarly wreck on my KX250 and had a pretty serious impact on my VFX-W helmet, made the trip to the ER and was deemed not to have a concussion. I thank this in part to what I had on my head. Will continue to buy Shoei as long as I am riding something with a motor.

Best off-road helmet on the market.
The most comfortable helmet I've owned. I have a Shoei GT air and this VFXW. Shoei fits my my head great. The paint quality is superb. Very happy with this helmet.

I measure between size SM to MD (56.5cm / 22 1/4) should I go with Med or Small?
Joshua P on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Just measured my melon and came up with basically the same size. I also wear a size 7 1/2 hat. I have the helmet in Med. It fits quite snug, but not in an uncomfortable way. I like this helmet a lot. I would go Med, if I were you.

I had also ordered a Bell for comparison. Shoei tends to fit elongated heads better, while Bell fits a rounded head better. Hope this helps.
