Shoei VFX-WR TC-1 Blazon MX Helmet

Free Shipping Australia-Wide on Orders Over $50

The world’s most celebrated motocross helmet has evolved even further! Fully loaded with next-level performance, safety and style, the all-new VFX-WR proudly boasts the SHOEI-exclusive Motion Energy Distribution System [M.E.D.S.] - strategically engineered to reduce rotational acceleration energy to the head in the event of an accident.

The new VFX-WR has been completely redesigned and re-engineered without sacrificing an ounce of the quality and performance that have given SHOEI off-road riders championship winning confidence for decades. The all-new VFX-WR defines the future of performance off-road helmets.

An aggresive form that adds new functions to the VFX identity 

With the VFX-WR, we carried on the daring and unconventional design spirit of the VFX-W and makes it even more aggressive, integrating the visor, mouthpiece, and other parts with the shell shape to create a powerful form. The rib formation on the back part of the helmet has been extended to the sides. This both helps to keep your goggles in place when riding hard and also makes it easy to find the optimal position where they should go when you put them on. We have also drawn a flowing, continuous line that runs from the visor to the top of the helmet, using new molding technology to produce a more advanced, solid form.

Unique shell-structure that manages to combine a lighter design with improved safety

We created an extremely sturdy shell for the VFX-WR by using high-performance organic fibers with excellent elasticity and tensile strength and layering them effectively. The light-weight design reduces the burden on the rider’s neck and also helps to maintain their concentration.

Increase ventilation performance

In off-road riding where you move around a lot and sweat copiously, ventilation is one of the most important features. The VFX-WR goes beyond previous models to add one more air intake and two air outlets. The air that’s been brought in traverses the air channels of the impact absorbing liner, promoting the discharge of the hot air inside the helmet.

The air intake positioned on the upper part of the eye port has a scoop shape that efficiently takes in air.

The newly added rear outlet and expanded neck outlet increase the amount of hot air discharged from inside the helmet.

SHOEI’s new M.E.D.S. technology makes the safety the helmet provides all the more a certainty

A helmet impact absorption performance is an extremely important factor when it comes to off-road riding in general and motocross racing in particular with the many crashes a rider will take during a race. We utilized varying densities of foam for the impact absorbing liner of VFX-WR to deliver optimal impact absorption performance.
The VFX-WR also introduces SHOEI’s unique and newly developed impact absorption structure, the Motion Energy Distribution System (M.E.D.S.). The M.E.D.S has been developed from the traditional dual liners. Its structure guarantees traditional impact absorption performance in response to linear acceleration and also has the effect of reducing rotational acceleration energy. In the event of an accident, the insert liner swings anchored by a center column during impact. This produces an effect that reduces rotational acceleration energy. The VFX-WR reduces rotational acceleration energy by 15% compared to previous models.
Using this new and unique impact absorbing liner structure from SHOEI makes it possible to achieve superior impact absorption performance and a reduction of rotational acceleration without infringing on such other factors as lightness of weight and wearing comfort.

Newly designed interior parts deliver a soft and comfortable fit

The full-bodied urethane pads deliver a comfortable fit while simultaneously providing a good hold that firmly supports your head even during intense riding.
Previous models used moisture-absorbing, quick-drying materials across the entire surface of interior parts. The VFX-WR, however, uses such materials for the cheek and forehead areas where you sweat a lot and uses a soft raised fabric for the portion that goes over the head. Switching to a hybrid material for interior parts reduces the discomfort caused by stickiness from sweat and serves to both making wearing the helmet feel comfortable when riding and allow for the helmet to be put on and taken off more smoothly.

Tight against the rider’s chin, the chinstrap cover is made using a punching process to improve airflow.

New-design V-470 Visor

The VFX-WR is equipped with the specially designed V-470 visor/peak. The highest point of the visor which most riders use is designed as the standard position. In the standard position, the visor integrates with the shell’s shape and sets off the aggressive shell design. Of course, as has been the case with previous models you can also adjust the visor angle.

The visor uses a flange mechanism to keep it stable. To explain, the shape of the screw hole in the visor center is designed to be pinched off in the standard position and be hollow on the visor’s back side. This design serves to help it engage with the nut used to keep the screw in place. This makes it easy to put the visor into standard position while also keeping the visor from lowering unintentionally even engaged in the intense action of off-road riding.

New mouthpiece accentuates the VFX-WR’s design

The opening around the mouth on the VFX-WR has been enlarged compared to previous products, and correspondingly we also enlarged the mouthpiece. This reduces the difficulties with breathing that can occur when engaged in intense off-road riding. A mesh filter has been put inside of the mouthpiece to keep out dirt and dust, while an aluminum metal screen on the outside blocks pebbles and other foreign objects. As with previous models the mouthpiece is fixed by one screw, making it easy to remove for maintenance.

The mouthpiece has a shape that sits continuously with the window beading and bottom beading, presenting a sense that is a part of the shell.

System for removing helmet in an emergency in the event of an accident

This system has been designed to make it possible for another person to be able to quickly do rescue work just in case the rider needs assistance. When a rider needs assistance, the situation calls both for speed and for caution when removing the helmet. The E.Q.R.S. entails equipping the cheek pad with a special ribbon that can be pulled to easily remove the cheek pad from the helmet when help is required. Removing this pad that holds the cheeks in place makes it possible to easily get the helmet off of the rider.
