The Shoei VFX-W is known as one of the safest, high performance helmets on the market, and we are about to put the 2017 Hectic Black/White model through it’s paces. The helmet itself is extremely well manufactured and has a very comfortable fitment thanks to the 3D-Mac-Dry removeable liner system.
The removable liner is thermo-moulded to match perfectly with the interior of the helmet. The matte-black and white paint work is eye-catching and classy, Malcolm Stewart has been wearing this paint job at some of the AMA Supercross rounds and it certainly stands out on TV.
We can’t wait to put the helmet through its paces over the coming months, so stay tuned to staging.dirtaction.com.au and Dirt Action Magazine for the upcoming reviews.
