Shoei X-14 Helmet There are few helmets in the past few years that have generated as much interest as has the introduction of the Shoei X-14 Helmet, and for good reason. It is a true juggernaut of the track, and every line, every angle and every curve has been specially crafted to get the most out of you and your machine. Its no wonder that the most sophisticated racers in the world are already rocking it at the highest levels Aerodynamic Shell Design Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing and professional riders feedback Dual-Layer Multi-Density EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation Four shell and five EPS liner sizes present increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes Impact absorbing EPS liner throughout the entire chin bar with Cheek Pad Cooling System Standard Rear Flaps can be replaced with optional, narrower flaps to customize aerodynamics, depending on rider preference and track demands Removable Lower Air Spoiler can be affixed to the chin bar to improve aerodynamic stabilization Ventilation System Upper air intake vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Top outlet vent is separate from the Rear Stabilizer, allowing it to be positioned for optimum flow-through ventilation Cheek Pad Cooling System features channels cut through the EPS liner and corresponding air holes in the cheek pad foam, cooling and clearing warm, humid air away from the riders face Breath guard and chin curtain included Lightweight, Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers into shell construction for a structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid, and resilient 3D Max-Dry Custom Interior System The entire interior lining (cheek pads, upper liner, and chin strap covers) can be removed for cleaning and replaced with optional thicknesses for a customizable fit Cheek pads and center pad can be manipulated to allow riders to adjust the position/angle of the helmet by up to four degrees, increasing the upper field of vision while tucked in extreme racing positions Comfortable, 3D Max-Dry helmet liner material absorbs and dissipates sweat and moisture twice as fast as traditional nylon interiors, keeping aggressive riders cool and dry E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from an injured riders helmet, enabling the helmet to be more easily removed from the head Extra comfort provided by ear pads, removable breath guard, and chin curtain Standard Chin-Strap Clip Neatly secures chin strap CWR-F Shield and QR-E System QR-E base plate system allows for tool-less shield removal and installation Exclusive patent pending Vortex Generators on shield reduce air friction Scratch-resistant coating and Pinlock EVO Fog Resistant System 99 protection from harmful UV A & B rays All-new double shield locking mechanism prevents unwanted shield openings

Just a quick review, this was actually the last helmet I thought I'd buy. I was originally looking at the AGV Pista GP and the Arai Corsair X. The AGV has the looks, fits great, and is very light. It lacks some of the niceties, however, like speaker cut outs. It is also the most expensive. The Arai had all the niceties, but didn't have that awesome aggressive look I was after and didn't fit my head as well. A Revzilla geek recommended I look at the new X-14. Glad I did! Not only does have the best of both worlds, but it is also the least expensive... Who would have thought?
Fits great, cuts through the wind, takes a Sena unit without issue, and looks amazing. Satisfied!

Zippers on both boots broke in a month. Worst boot I've bought thus far, and I've owned quite a few.
Do yourself a favor and buy a SIDI.
