5 X-TWELVE Since its introduction in 2003, the X-Eleven has been the motorcycle-racing helmet that all others are judged by. For the 2010 model year, Shoei engineers were faced with the grueling task of improving on what is already considered to be the best-performing racing helmet ever conceived. Born from racing, the all-new X-Twelve combines Shoei’s 50 years of helmet building experience with the very latest technology and most advanced materials to bring you the racing helmet of the future. Throughout its history, Shoei has relied on feedback from professional racers around the globe to continually improve its products, and everything learned along the way has now culminated in the finest motorcycle racing helmet ever developed—the all-new X-Twelve! Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self-Adjusting) Base Plate System CW-1 Shield AIM+ Shell Construction (Snell M2010-Approved) SHOEI’s proprietary AIM+ technology combines fiberglass with organic fibers that are so strong they can only be cut with a laser. The end result is a stronger, lighter shell that will absorb and distribute the force of an impact safely and efficiently. 5 Shell Sizes While some of our competitors rely on foam padding for fitting a wide range of customers, SHOEI offers an industry-leading five shell sizes in the new XTwelve to ensure a custom fit for heads between the sizes of XS-XXL. Ventilation System It’s not uncommon for a racing environment to get blazing hot, which is why ventilation was a top priority when designing the new X-Twelve. The X-Twelve features five (5) intake and ten (10) exhaust vents, making it the most aggressively ventilated helmet SHOEI has ever produced. Wind tunnel testing identified the very best locations and shapes of intake and exhaust ports to maximize airflow, including the suction effect that’s created as low pressure air travels toward the rear of the helmet. With this in mind, the X-Twelve features new Side Extractor Vents developed by our MotoGP racing service to help clear warm, humid air from the racer’s face. Dual-Layer EPS Liner • Dual layer liner yields enhanced impact absorption by adjusting thickness and density in key areas • Inner liner features air channels for efficient cooling • Impact-absorbing EPS liner throughout the entire chin bar 3D Max Dry Interior System The X-Twelve is equipped with a fully removable, washable, and replaceable 3D Max Dry liner. SHOEI’s proprietary Max Dry material has been proven to absorb and dissipate sweat two-times faster than traditional nylon interiors. In addition, the X-Twelve’s interior components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider’s head. E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick Release System) Mechanical tabs disengage cheek pads for easy removal by emergency medical personnel. Helmet can be removed with minimum load to rider in emergency situations. Chin Curtain The chin curtain can be inserted into the lower edge of the chin bar to reduce wind turbulence and noise. 5-Year Waranty Aero Edge 2 Spoiler The X-Twelve’s Aero Edge 2 Spoiler helps minimize lift at high speeds, and thus wind drag from the rider and motorcycle. In addition, increased negative air pressure improves exhaust performance to help ventilate the helmet. Breath Guard The breath guard can be inserted into the upper edge of the chin bar to help reduce fogging by diverted exhausted breath down out the bottom of the helmet. 5-Year Warranty From Purchase Date. 7-Year Warranty From Helmet Manufacture Date. Whichever comes first.
