The helmet is all-new with what Shoei says are improved aerodynamics, ventilation and comfort as well as an ultralight shell, according to the Japanese factory it is their most technologically advanced sports helmet to date.

The new lid was debuted by MotoGP former world champion Marc Marquez last week, the Spanish superstar said this as he unveiled the new helmet: ”The new X-Spirit III is beautifully crafted, extremely comfortable and extremely efficient.”
