Where can I buy Shoei helmets in USA ?
In USA Shoei motorcycle helmets are distributed by our various importers. If you are searching for your nearest Shoei Dealer - such as Atlantic Moto please contact the importer who is responsible for your country.
Where can I get information about prices or about the availability of Shoei Helmets ?
If you require information about the availability or the prices of Shoei helmets or spare parts please contact the Shoei importer in USA.
Is a crashed / dropped shoei helmet still safe to wear?
Current safety helmets are designed to absorb the energy of an accident by being destroyed. Even a small impact can damage the integrity of the shell or the inner liner. Quite often this damage may be unnoticeable to the untrained eye. Therefore, any shoie helmet involved in an impact should not be used again.
Does Shoei provide motorcycle racing support?
Shoei helmets are worn by some of the worlds top racers and Shoei does provide some amateur racing support too.
If you are interested in Shoei sponsorship please contact your local importer. Due to the overwhelming number of request for sponsorship they receive each year, they unfortunately cannot help all the racers that deserve support.
How do I clean the shoei helmet properly?
Inside: All our interiors are washable! If you own a helmet with a detachable interior, just remove it and wash it in lukewarm water. Please use a mild soap. If your helmet is not equipped with a detachable interior, please put the whole helmet into lukewarm water. After washing, the helmet must dry without the use of any drying tools like hairdryers, etc. In a warm and dry environment the drying time should take at least 48 hours. But again, PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY DRYING TOOLS as they may damage the inner liner of your helmet.
Outside: Please clean the outside of your helmet with water and a mild soap.
As Shoei helmets are painted, it is also possible to use car polish to keep the paint in a good condition.
Please do not use cleaning sprays or liquid window cleaner as they may damage the polycarbonate parts of the ventilation or your shield.
Shield: It is very important not to use any cleaning sprays or liquid window cleaner on your shield. Please clean your shield only with lukewarm water and a mild soap.
Tip: Put a wet towel on your shield, leave it there for some minutes and insects can be removed easily.
Can I paintbrush my Shoei helmet?
It is possible to repaint your Shoei helmet. You can use any colours which are not Nitro based. Please make sure that no aggressive fumes will enter the inside of the helmet.
You can also attach stickers to your helmet. They do not have any influence on the shell material.
Why is Shoei using different chin strap locks?
Shoei helmets are either equipped with our One-Touch-Buckle or the Double-D-Ring. Neither of them is safer than the other. For comfort oriented shoei models we prefer the One-Touch-Buckle. Once you have adjusted this kind of chin strap lock you can open and close it very easily. Our sport orientated models come with the Double-D-Ring. The reason is simply that Grand Prix Racers are forced to wear that system during the races and these helmet models have their origin on the racetrack.
Shoei - A Brief Company History
SHOEI has been dedicated to the development of superior helmet technology since 1958.
The company was started by the immense spirit and determination of its founder Eitaro Kamata, who designed and used his first products exclusively for the racing sector.
What is amazing even by today’s standards is the pace at which SHOEI became popular all over the world: starting in the late sixties, SHOEI’s reputation as a top quality brand spread first over the U.S., then later all over the motor markets of Europe.
Shoei Company History & Information
Shoei Helmets USA
SHOEI USA exclusively uses fibre-reinforced plastics that offer the best properties for the manufacture of a helmet shell. Thanks to having many years of experience and highly specialised employees, SHOEI is in a position to produce helmet shells that are extremely strong and yet light. Each helmet shell is marked personally by the employee who is responsible for it and thus puts his name on the line for the quality of this example.

Helmet Ventilation is more effective if the air has a way out.
That is why SHOEI helmets do not only have effective intakes, but also devices through which hot air can leave the helmet. In the case of our top models, these are the Aero-Vortex-Ventilations.
With their characteristic V-shape, they create negative pressure making use of the riding windstream.
Warm air from the rider´s head is actively drawn out of the helmet.

Shoei Helmet Maintenance & Replacement
Ultimately, the useful service life of a safety helmet is dependent on the intensity and frequency of its use. Helmet replacement is recommended even if only one of the under-mentioned points applies:
- The helmet was subjected to an impact.
- The comfort padding or the retention system has become loose due to heavy use or display signs of deterioration.
- The synthetic foam padding displays signs of heavy use and the helmet feels too loose. Test: with the retention system fastened, the helmet turns to the side when you gently shake your head.
