INSIDE A SHOEI HELMET

Inside a SHOEI helmet
Visor

1. SHIELD


The shield protects the rider against wind, dirt, insects and UV radiation. It must also guarantee clear vision without optical distortion.



The Helmet Shell

2. THE HELMET SHELL


The helmet shell absorbs the impact energy in the event of a fall, and distributes it over the largest possible area.



EPS liner

3. EPS LINER


The energy that is passed on by the helmet shell is absorbed by the deformation of the EPS liner. The EPS liner is designed to absorb the energies of a single impact.



Inner padding

4. COMFORT LINER


The inner padding consists of high-quality polyurethane foams of various levels of hardness, with superior cover materials to ensure a perfect hold and seating on the face.



Chin Strap

5. CHINSTRAP


The task of the chinstrap is to hold the helmet firmly on the head. This is done by using a chinstrap with proper tensile strength and extensibility. The chinstrap is firmly attached to the helmet shell with metal rivets.



Ventilation

6. VENTILATION


The SHOEI ventilation system directs cooling, drying air into the helmet, and uses areas of low air pressure to the rear of the helmet to draw warm, damp air through the outlets and into the outside environment. Ventilation is one of the most sought after helmet functions during the research and development stages of all new models. The perfect placing and shaping of the inlets and outlets, along with air channels buried within the EPS liner, are the basis for optimum ventilation, and is part of what separates SHOEI from our competition.
