— How the new VFX-EVO is made —

Design Concept
The world’s most evolved motocross helmet has evolved. Long overdue? Perhaps. But world ­class engineering and quality take time. Fully loaded with next ­level performance, safety, style and progression, the all­new VFX ­EVO proudly boasts the SHOEI­ exclusive Motion Energy Distribution System [M.E.D.S.]—strategically engineered to reduce rotational acceleration energy to the head in the event of an accident. Completely reimagined and re­engineered without sacrificing an ounce of the quality and performance that have given SHOEI motocross and off­road riders championship­ worthy confidence for nearly a decade, the all­new VFX ­EVO has finally arrived. Worth the wait? We thought you’d agree.
Motion Energy Distribution System [M.E.D.S.]
The proprietary, SHOEI­exclusive Motion Energy Distribution System [M.E.D.S.] features a dual­layer, multi­density EPS liner that—in addition to preserving the lightweight, impact­ absorbing characteristics of SHOEI’s traditional EPS systems—has been specially engineered to reduce rotational acceleration energy to the head in the event of an accident. Anchored by a larger center column, the inner layer of the dual ­layer system swings during impact, allowing its three strategically ­designed perimeter columns to absorb the energy. The end result is a significant reduction of rotational forces to the rider’s head without sacrificing an ounce of quality or performance.
Dual­Layer / Multi­Density EPS Liner
In addition to absorbing and reducing rotational energy thanks to the all ­new M.E.D.S. technology, the VFX ­EVO’s dual­layer, multi­density EPS liner provides enhanced impact absorption by utilizing varying densities of foam in key areas around the rider’s head. Channels between the EPS layers allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through the helmet, further enhancing the VFX ­EVO’s superior ventilation characteristics. In addition to enhanced impact absorption and ventilation, the precise placement of multi­ density EPS liner material yields a more compact, lightweight design.
Multi­Ply Matrix AIM+ Shell
Few characteristics of a motorcycle helmet are as critical as its first ­layer of defense, which is precisely why the all­new VFX­ EVO features the SHOEI­exclusive Multi­Ply Matrix AIM+ Shell construction. Combining fiberglass with lightweight organic and high­ performance fibers, the VFX­ EVO’s proprietary AIM+ Shell provides optimal impact­ absorption, strength and elasticity, and is available in four shell sizes to ensure a custom fit for heads between the sizes of XS­ to XXL.
Shell Design
Through a new state­of­the­art shell forming technology exclusive to SHOEI, the VFX­ EVO incorporates the aerodynamic advantages of a spoiler into its shell, and consistent shell thickness guarantees the proper strength and weight of each and every helmet. The large eye port allows for a greater peripheral field of vision and facilitates oversized goggles. Additionally, the shell ­integrated goggle channel has been optimized to form a perfect goggle retention system.
Ventilation Performance
Racing environments can be extremely hot and fatiguing, which is precisely why next­ level ventilation performance was a top priority when SHOEI engineers conceptualized the VFX ­EVO. Boasting sixteen (16) intake and exhaust vents in total [1 additional intake and 2 additional exhausts than the VFX­W]—all strategically shaped and located to maximize airflow and negative air pressure suction to the rear of the helmet—the VFX­ EVO’s ventilating prowess is second to none. Along with optimized shell aerodynamics, cooling air channels in the VFX ­EVO’s dual­layer EPS liner further enhance its world­ class ventilation performance.
