Shoei - X-14 Marquez 4 Helmet
The X-14 is the latest and greatest in from Shoei's X series helmets. As soon as you pick this helmet up, you immediately feel like you are holding a piece of jewelery or a work of art. The fit, finish and overall quality stands out that much.
Track certified by one of the fastest riders on the planet, Marc Marquez, every detail of the X-Fourteen was carefully designed and tested until this masterpiece was born.
Unlike many of the other top of the line race helmets that feature very round shapes, the Shoei X-14 is very different, it's a long oval shape. The first thing you notice about the helmet is the extended rear shape and side spoilers in the back. Shoei claims the long oval shape will help shave off lap times and reduce drag.
Another special upgrade is the liner system, which can be modified to change the eye port position to allow better visibility depending on your riding position. Also, the cheek pads feature a cooling funnel affect which helps keep the liner cool right next to your face.
