Shoei X-Spirit III Helmet
Shoei X-Spirit III Helmet
Product description Shoei X-spirit III
The idea at Shoei for the x-spirit 3 is that they had to come up with the perfect racing helmet and that's how they succeeded. The x-spirit III has been designed for high-performance use and they gave everything they got in terms of quality and safety. The x-spirit has been tested in the Shoei wind tunnel with regard to the lift and the pressure of the helmet. And the stability of the helmet at high speeds has become even better than its predecessor. The x-spirit III has a new cheek ventilation system, because the helmet is more closed at the bottom for the aerodynamic effect. Its counterpart the AGV Pista GP R faces strong competition from the X-spirit III. From a lower price range, its competitors are the HJC RPHA 11 and the Shark Race R Pro.
Safety Shoei X-spirit III
The outer shell of the x-spirit III consists of the AIM+, developed by Shoei themselves. This is a highly developed fiberglass composite with different layers. It has the property that the shell has an ultimate stiffness and is shock-absorbing. The inner lining can be easily and quickly removed in case of emergency with the Emergency Quick Release System. The helmet is equipped with a double-D closure. The EPS liner has different densities to optimally absorb the impact. The CWR-F Pinlock visor is anti-fog.
Ventilation Shoei X-spirit III
For the ultimate ventilation, the X-spirit III has 6 air inlets that can be closed and 6 air outlets. In addition, it has a renewed cheek ventilation, where air openings are made in the cheek pads that spread the airflow from the chin opening over the face. This cooling in the bottom of the helmet gives a lot of comfort while driving. The quality of the ventilation of the X-Spirit III is unprecedented.
Aerodynamics Shoei X-spirit III
The aerodynamic system has been optimized by testing in Shoei's wind tunnel. They have tried to minimize the lift and pressure on the X-spirit III. They have reduced the lift by 3% and the pressure by 10% compared to the predecessor. The X-spirit III is therefore extremely stable. The visor is equipped with VORTEX generators on both sides of the visor and this also provides less lift and pressure. The spoiler at the rear reduces vibrations and motion up to 50% compared to its predecessor x-spirit II. The spoiler can be replaced to larger or smaller depending on the driving conditions.
Visor Shoei X-spirit III
The 2D CWR-F pinlock visor is standard. What is very special about the X-spirit III is that the visor falls into the helmet when closed, instead of on it. That makes it more complete with the helmet. The visor is equipped with VORTEX generators on both sides of the visor.
Lining Shoei X-spirit III
The removable, moisture-regulating, antibacterial, washable lining can be adjusted to the personal preference of the rider. Furthermore, the inner lining is adjustable and because of this the helmet can be tilted up to 4 degrees in relation to the standard position. This contributes to optimum visibility regardless of the driving position. The inner lining feels extremely comfortable.
