I must admit at first getting this on took some effort but once on the fit was fantastic. When purchasing any helmet a rule of thumb is to always get a snug fit; but NOT to where you feel your head might explode. In most cases a snug fit is a good fit! The key is “pull the straps apart as wide as you can before you pull it over”. This will still be challenging but worth it in the end once it is on; after a few times of getting this on and off you will figure out the secret.
Still not convinced on how great this helmet is well check this out:
• Motorcross Action Magazine gave the helmet FIVE stars, only one other helmet received five stars from MXA and that was the Arai VX-Pro3.
• Transworld Motocross said to look no further than the Shoei VFX-W.
Shoei VFX-W Features:
• AIM+ Shell Construction
• Dual-Layer EPS Liner
• V-430 "Sleek" Visor
• 3D Max-Dry Liner System
• Emergency Quick Release System (EQRS)
• Ventilation System
• "Sleek" Mouthpiece
• 5-Year Warranty
The Shoei VFX-W is one of the best off road helmets I have ever tried. The helmet fit very well with the shape of my face and was not overly snug. The VFX-W is available in sizes X-Small to 2XL and HelmetMan always offers a discount for all Shoei helmets starting at 10% of MSRP.
