If you road race or do track days, you can’t do better than wearing the same helmet as MotoGP megastar Marc Marquez. The two-time world champion debuted this new Shoei just a few races ago. It features advanced aerodynamics, developed through wind-tunnel testing, as well as one of most sophisticated liners offered in a helmet. The new, elongated, aerodynamic shell shape is obvious. But details include a patented rear stabilizer system with replaceable flaps so the rider can fine-tune the aero performance. Ridges on the top and on the chin bar help reduce wind resistance, and a removable lower air spoiler offers further aero adjustment. Inside, the X-Fourteen has a trick, dual-layer liner with varying densities of foam for better impact absorption and ventilation. Plus, patented, rotating liner parts let the rider vary the angle of the helmet by up to four degrees to increase vision while fully tucked in on the bike. No price yet on this Shoei helmet, but it will match the premium features.
