Product information

Premium Helmets

Eitaro Kamata founded Shoei in 1958 with the development of his first protective helmet for motorcycle and car racing. Shoei quickly gained worldwide recognition, first in the USA and later in Europe, as one of the leading suppliers of top-class sports helmets. Today it is impossible to imagine the world of motorsport without Shoei. The brand guarantees the highest safety standards, outstanding aerodynamics, constantly innovative design features and perfect finishing quality. Following the great success of the XR 1100 in the sports sector, Shoei have now also redefined the standards in the sport-touring sector with the Qwest series - reduced noise levels, even better aerodynamics, even more effective ventilation and maximum safety make these newly developed helmets the true premier league favourites in their class.
