Shoei X-Fourteen Helmet Marquez Concept Black TC-1

Shoei’s top-of-the-line helmet is fittingly fitted atop the world’s top rider, Marc Marquez.

Starting from within, each X-Fourteen helmet is fashioned around a highly-engineered, fully-removable comfort liner and cheek pads. These pieces effectively pull moisture off your head and keep you cool while you make way through the apex, or the toll booth. *The (now-standard) emergency quick release system EQRS cheek pads allow for, not only a secure fit of the helmet, but also a faster, safer removal of the lid should the rider need careful attention after a crash. All of this is snuggled inside a dual-layer, multi-density EPS foam liner that absorbs impact energy in a fall, while effectively aiding in the delivery of cooling air straight to the scalp.

For maximum safety, helmet sizing is critical, that’s why Shoei employs four different shell sizes in the X-Fourteen range to fit extra-small to XX-large heads. The shell itself, which uses six layers of hand-laid, varying materials, provides the right mix of rigidity and flexibility not typically seen in a fiberglass helmet, or that of a plastic shell. The result is a SNELL-approved helmet that almost certainly looks like it’s been developed in a wind tunnel (it was!). The shape is carefully engineered to provide effective rider ventilation without calling into question safety. Riders that spend a lot of time at the track will appreciate the minimal buffeting at speed in a helmet that doesn’t push the head around as much as lesser designs.

And that brings us to the helmet’s design. Shoei continues to roll out the designs as much as Marquez and the staff at Dave Designs in Spain come up with the various new designs as the season rolls along. That brings us to the Concept Black TC-1 here – which is basically a negative of the helmet most commonly found on Marc’s head during the 2018 season. First introduced on 27 January 2018 ahead of MotoGP’s preseason testing, the helmet’s graphics are typical Shoei quality, the decals are perfectly straight, and the design is striking.

Any deals on matte black X-14 in Medium?

Thanks
