Premium Off-Road Performance

The world’s most celebrated motocross helmet has evolved even further! Fully loaded with next-level performance, safety and style, the all-new VFX-WR 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.

The new VFX-WR has been completely redesigned and re-engineered without sacrificing an ounce of the quality and performance that have given SHOEI off-road riders championship winning confidence for decades. The all-new VFX-WR defines the future of performance off-road helmets.


  • Proprietary, SHOEI exclusive rotational energy absorption technology
  • Anchored by larger centre column, inner EPS layer swings during impact
  • Strategically designed perimeter columns absorb rotational energy
  • Significant reduction of rotational forces to the rider’s head
  • Preserves the lightweight, impact-absorbing characteristics of SHOEI’s traditional EPS systems


Few characteristics of a motorcycle helmet are as critical as its first-layer of defence - the outer shell - which is why the all-new VFX-WR features SHOEI’s unique 6 layer Multi-Ply Matrix AIM+ Shell construction. Combine that with the proprietary, SHOEIexclusive Motion Energy Distribution System [M.E.D.S.], and the all-new VFX-WR sets a new standard for safety and performance.


  • Provides enhanced impact absorption by utilising varying densities of foam
  • Allows cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS
  • Precise placement of multi-density EPS material yields a more compact, lightweight design
  • M.E.D.S. technology absorbs and reduces rotational energy


  • Proprietary technology integrates a six ply matrix
  • Hand-laid interwoven layers of fibreglass with lightweight organic and high-performance fibres
  • SHOEI’s strongest, lightest, most elastic shell provides optimal impact absorption


High-quality EPS liner material throughout entire chin bar for enhanced impact absorption


Thanks to a new state-of-the-art shell forming technology exclusive only to SHOEI, the VFX-WR incorporates the aerodynamic advantages of a spoiler into its shell, and consistent shell thickness guarantees the proper strength, weight & protection of each and every helmet.

  • Exclusive, state-of-the-art shell forming technology
  • Incorporates the aerodynamic advantages of a spoiler into the shell
  • Consistent shell thickness guarantees proper strength and weight
  • Shell integrated goggle channel forms a perfect goggle retention system


Racing environments can be extremely hot and fatiguing, which is precisely why next level ventilation performance was a top priority when conceptualising the VFX-WR. Developed in SHOEI’s in-house wind tunnel to realise optimal vent port shapes, sizes and locations, the VFX-WR’s advanced ventilation performance has been optimised to excel in the most demanding conditions.

  • Boasting sixteen (16) intake and exhaust vents in total
  • Wind tunnel tested for optimal vent port shapes, sizes and locations
  • Improved negative air pressure suction for enhanced cool-air intake and hot-air expulsion
  • Cooling air channels in the dual-layer EPS liner further enhance airflow
  • Optimised to excel in the demanding confines of off-road and motocross environments


  • Fully removable, washable, replaceable, and adjustable
  • Max-Dry liner material absorbs and dissipates sweat 2X faster than traditional nylon interiors
  • Soft yet durable lower cheek pad fabric for a plush fit and feel
  • Multi-layer cheek pads for maximum comfort and superior helmet stabilisation
  • Three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider’s head


  • Fine tuned by SHOEI’s professional motocross and off-road racing team
  • Specially designed for a seamless connection with the shell
  • Provides superior roost protection and channels cooling air into helmet
  • Utilises highest point of adjustability as its standard “home” position
  • New flange mechanism to easily find home position and prevent unexpected movement
  • High-grade polycarbonate screws are capable of shearing off during impact to reduce forces to the rider’s head


  • Equal parts style, functionality and safety
  • Wind tunnel refined for optimal cooling
  • Reinforced by a strategically placed strip of AIM+ shell material
  • Aluminium mesh screen and removable, washable foam filter prevents roost, rocks, mud, and dust from entering helmet


  • Provides a massive peripheral field of vision
  • Large eyeport facilitates oversized goggles


  • Allows emergency medical personnel to easily and safely remove the cheek pads from an injured rider’s helmet
  • Helmet can be gently removed from an injured rider’s head with minimal load placed on his/her neck
