Shoei has always been at the Forefront of motorcycle helmets, currently being one of the worldwide references in the sector. Founded in 1958 by Eitaro Kamata, they soon became the official helmet supplier for the giant Honda and have not stopped growing since then. Today, there is no motorcycle discipline where you won’t find a Shoei on the head of some of the best riders: from MotoGP with the Márquez brothers, to the various disciplines of off-road, whether motocross, enduro and even trial.
The Shoei design, with clean lines and slightly oval for improved ergonomics, always follows three key concepts that mark the features of a Shoei helmet: ambition, attention to detail and brand spirit.
Ambition in their goals. In the ’80s, Shoei was the first company to manufacture helmets with carbon fibre and Kevlar, composite materials that have significantly increased the absorption capacity of the shells. Currently they afford a wide selection of helmets to cover all motorcycling variants. They are capable of creating helmets for sports for road, devised for the circuit, also helmets for touring incorporating an integrated sun visor or that are modular. And Shoei manages to shine in all sectors.
Attention to detail, from design to the manufacturing process. Innovating and devising products with good features, but that conserves the versatility required for everyday use. A Shoei helmet outlives its continued urban use, whether full face or jet.
And brand spirit: Shoei helmets stand out for affording high quality at a reasonable price, offering the best technology for everybody, a 100% Japanese philosophy, like the manufacture of their helmets. Everything is focused such that we, the motorcycle fans, can enjoy our helmet for the years to come.
