Shoei X-15 Helmet
Among the most important and widely studied properties in racing, no stone was left unturned during the development of the X-Fifteens aerodynamics. Designed and refined in SHOEIs state-of-the-art wind tunnel facility, the X-Fifteen boasts impressive improvements in all aerodynamic performance measurables, most notably a 6.1% reduction in drag and a 1.6% reduction in lift [as compared to its predecessor].
Overheating while riding and racing can have a direct impact on rider fatigue and safety, which is precisely why ventilation performance was a crucial feature while designing the X-Fifteen. Putting the helmet through its paces in SHOEIs in-house wind tunnel throughout development revealed optimal airflow in multiple riding positions, but none more important than the aerodynamic, tucked racing position.
FIELD OF VISION
Taking a new angle on performance, the CWR-F2R shield system provides vast improvements in upper and lateral fields of vision. SHOEI engineers revised the eyeport trajectory to increase the upper field of view by 5mm without changing the position of the riders head inside the helmet. Though fractional by design, the resulting view through the X-Fifteens eyeport is significant while positioned in racings extreme lean angles.
