Shoei VFX-W - Hectic
Shoei VFX-W - Hectic
Shoei’s definitive off-road helmet, the VFX-W has been the benchmark for the last decade. Designed, in Shoei’s wind tunnel facility and rider tested, the helmet strikes a perfect balance between aerodynamics and the brand’s signature comfort and protection.
The outer shell constructed from a fibreglass and organic fibre combination is ideal for resisting impacts and abrasion, while also being lightweight and reducing wind drag and buffeting at higher speeds. The extra-large sun peak offers optimal aerodynamics, as well as coverage and protection from sun and mud.
The VFX-W’s advanced ventilation system realised in Shoei’s in-house wind tunnel has been optimised for maximum performance, in taking and expelling air at strategic points of the helmet to keep you comfortable on the bike. The comfort also extends to the interior of the helmet; the 3D Max-Dry interior system is capable of absorbing and dispelling sweat two times faster than regular nylon interiors, and the multi-layer cheek pads are three-dimensionally shaped to fit your head.
For anyone serious about off-roading the Shoei VFX-W is the helmet built for you. The VFX-W is a favourite for dirt-track riders worldwide, and for years, Shoei's design has been adopted by competitive manufacturers, proving the Japanese brand’s quality design and performance.

Shoei was founded in japan in 1958 and have been producing motorcycle helmets since. At the beginning the helmets produced were only for the racing sector, but then founder Eitaro Kamata made the decision to expand their horizons and in 1960 their factory in Tokyo began producing helmets which met the Japanese industrial standards allowing everyday riders to wear their helmets.
Shoei's GRV helmet was the first helmet to use carbon fibre and Kevlar. Shoei also created the first coverless shield system and the Dual Liner Ventilation system. The flagship X-Spirit was introduced in 2003 and was promoted by Shoei as the most advanced helmet in the world, winning MCN's Product of the Year 2003 award in the clothing category. It was followed by further development and the introduction of the RF-1000 (sold as the XR-1000 in Europe) in 2004, and the later introduction of the X-Eleven. These helmets paved the way for the current RF-1100 and X-Twelve models. In September 2010 the QWEST was released, the successor of the RAID II, a top of the line sport touring helmet.
The launch of the Neotec in 2012 was another milestone for Shoei - the addition of a built in sun visor , built into a second shell layer to remove the weakness inherent in adding an internal sun visor.
Shoei sponsors MotoGP riders such as Marc Marquez and Bradley Smith, and being adopted by Honda Motor Co, Shoei has gained respect from motorcycle industries. Although a very successful brand, Shoei still remains a relatively small with under 500 workers worldwide. The helmets are only produced in Japan, yet they are distributed and sold globally.
In 2013, Shoei introduced a 5 year warranty against material and manufacturing defects - all Shoei helmets sold by Infinity Motorcycles are supplied through the official channels and we're Shoei Assured dealers, so our staff are trained in fitting, maintenance and servicing of Shoei helmets and we stock a range of Shoei accessories, spares and visors in all stores.
