SHOEI Malaysia Introduces New X-Fifteen Road Helmet – Prices From RM2,850!

The wait is over for racing enthusiasts as SHOEI’s much-anticipated premium road racing helmet, the X-Fifteen, has finally made its debut in Malaysia. To celebrate the arrival of this cutting-edge helmet, SHOEI Malaysia hosted an exclusive preview event for the first 100 X-Fifteen owners. These lucky individuals were given the unique opportunity to choose their preferred helmet graphics and finalize the sizing through the X-Fifteen Personal Fitting System (PFS) session. As an extra special touch, every X-Fifteen owner received an exclusive limited-edition gift set.

One of the standout features of the X-Fifteen is its aerodynamic prowess, fine-tuned in SHOEI’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel facility. The helmet’s design prioritizes high-speed stability, resulting in a remarkable 6.1% drag reduction and a 1.6% decrease in lift compared to its predecessor. This engineering marvel is capable of delivering peak performance at speeds of up to 350 km/h.

The X-Fifteen boasts a Multi-Ply Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) Shell, constructed from a six-ply matrix of lightweight fiberglass and high-performance fibers. This shell is not only tough but also adept at shock absorption while maintaining its structural integrity. It’s a true racing helmet, promising exceptional performance, functionality, and, above all, safety.

Safety is paramount, and the X-Fifteen excels in this aspect with its Multi-Piece/Multi-Density EPS Liner, strategically using varying foam densities to optimize impact absorption around the head. This precise placement results in a more compact, lightweight design.

Ventilation and airflow in the X-Fifteen have been optimized with seven closable air inlets and six air outlets, allowing hot air to escape efficiently. Additionally, the EPS tunnels have been deepened from 6mm to 10mm, significantly increasing cold air volume and expediting hot air evacuation, ensuring a constant flow of refreshing air for the rider. The innovative cheek pad cooling system now incorporates more air holes to provide additional comfort.

In terms of comfort, the X-Fifteen introduces pocket-shaped pads with removable layers for a precision fit. Its patented angle adjustment mechanism can change the helmet’s position by up to 4 degrees, enhancing the rider’s upper field of vision, especially when tucked into extreme racing positions.

Functionality is taken to the next level with a double-layer lens lock design, ensuring stability during high-speed riding. The two-stage shield locking system, comprising a racing shield lock and a center locking mechanism, offers the best protection against unexpected shield releases during a fall. Furthermore, a newly developed trigger lock mechanism prevents the shield from detaching after an accident, instilling even greater rider confidence.

Most importantly, the X-Fifteen complies with the latest ECE22.06 and FIM homologation safety standards. It features a CWR-F2R shield/visor that combats fogging in various weather conditions, providing riders with a consistently clear vision. This shield, in combination with the latest window beading, effectively prevents wind and water from entering when secured. To suit individual tastes, the helmet is available in a wide range of colors and graphics, and it offers sizes ranging from XS to XXL, ensuring a perfect fit for every rider.

The SHOEI X-Fifteen is now available at retail prices of RM 2,850 for the Plain version, RM 3,350 for Graphic, and RM 3,500 for Riders Replica. For those seeking a personalized fitting session, customers are encouraged to visit the Gomoto Experience Lab to ensure the best helmet fit.
