SHOEI TECHNOLOGY AND TESTING

All SHOEI helmets are developed with safety, comfort, and passion in mind. Information gained from all over the world goes into the development of each and every model.

SHOEI design

With safety, comfort, and passion in mind, product development takes customer wishes, the demands of the market, and new trends into consideration. Although safety and functionality always play the dominant role, the design aspect is never neglected. This special combination of perfect functionality and unique design is testimony to the passion that motorcycle riders all over the world experience.

SHOEI Wind Tunnel

More than 20 years ago, SHOEI was the first maker to recognize the importance of aerodynamics in designing a helmet. During this time, SHOEI invested in a wind tunnel of its own that is an indispensable constituent part of product development. In addition, tests to explore the effects of wind resistance and the various forces applied are constantly measured to determine the performance of the ventilation, as well as how much noise is being produced.

SHOEI Testing

Intensive test rides are performed to verify the results of the wind tunnel testing on several aspects of the helmet. For example, the various forms of air flow created by different types of motorcycles, as well as the comfort experienced during long rides, are investigated and taken into consideration when developing a helmet design.

SHOEI Racing Service

Nowhere are the requirements placed on a helmet more extreme than in professional racing. The development of SHOEI sports helmets is decisively supported by our factory riders in MotoGP, Supercross, and other international classes. Among other things, the ventilation system and the quick-change visor system were developed first for racing. Today, every rider with a SHOEI helmet can benefit from these technologies.
