Here’s a look at the new season Shoei helmets, with the high performance X Spirit II coming in as the new top-of-the-range Shoei model. The new full face helmet includes top notch innovation and materials, with a redesigned and aerodynamic external shell. It is made from AIM+ Plus Advanced Integrated Matrix materials, meaning a light-weight, fully rigid but flexible material. It weighs 1450 grams in the medium size.
The new Emergency Quick Release System allows for fast removal of the helmet in case of an accident or other necessity. The CWF-1 visor is large in size than the previous model and has Pinlock function. The internal lining can be removed and washed, and is available in various thicknesses for a better, personal fit.
A multiple air intake and outlet system makes for perfect breathability, even at low speeds. The Shoei X Spirit II is available in white and in the replica colours Kallio 2TC-1 and Streamliner TC-4. The price is between 740 and 889 euros for official Shoei outlets.
