    Product Information

    Shoei X-Twelve Helmet

    Shoei has a comprehensive lineup but when it comes to all out performance, the X-Twelve is the helmet that stands up and gets the job done. Bred in the world of racing and worn by riders like MotoGP champ Marc Marquez, the X-Twelve can genuinely boast impressive aerodynamics and venting. What is more surprising though than its racing credentials is the amount of civility Shoei has managed to pack into the helmet. Naturally light, the X-Twelve is also quiet and uses the same shield changing system as seen on other Shoei helmets. This means it’s easy and simple to use. Some sportbike riders like absolute performance but the X-Twelve thankfully doesn’t make you suffer for it. Both solids and race replica graphics are available so you can get the X-Twelve in a number of different styles as well.

    Aerodynamic Shell Design
    • Wind tunnel tested shell aerodynamics, spoiler and ventilation
    • Streamline design increases airflow while reducing noise, buffeting and lift during high speed riding
    • Aero Edge Spoiler 2 is positioned to reduce lift and generate negative air pressure to draw warm air through exhaust vents
    Ventilation System
    • Shoei’s most aggressively ventilated helmet
    • Five intake and ten exhaust vents
    • Air Scoop 3 intake vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior
    • Top outlet vent is separate from the Aero Edge Spoiler 2 allowing it to be positioned for optimum flow-through ventilation
    • 3 Side extractor vents developed from MotoGP serve to remove warm air from rider’s face to increase comfort and reduce fogging
    • Featured exclusively on the X-Twelve
    3D Max-Dry Interior System
    • Fully removable, washable and replaceable
    • Max-Dry liner material absorbs and dissipates sweat twice as fast as traditional liners
    • Multi-layer cheek pads for comfort and helmet stabilization
    • Three dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider’s head
    • E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from an injured rider’s helmet for easy and safe helmet removal
    • Eyeglass compatible interior
    CW-1 Shield and Q.R.S.A. System
    • Protects form 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays

      X12

      The X12 is the best helmet I have ever owned. Over 35 mph it is like having a fan in your helmet. The wind shield is so clear I had to tap it to make sure I had it down before I started to go forward. If you think your head is worth $5 then get a five dollar helmet.

      Absurdly loud

      This is a great helmet on a racetrack with industrial-strength earplugs in your ears. Its light and air flow is outstanding, and I had the Bautista replica which is a beautiful helmet. However, I could not justify wearing it on the street after trying to deal with its unbearable whistling for several months. I had one other friend who had the same experience with the X-Twelve, and one who didn't, so it's not the same for all head shapes - just make sure you try it before buying if you can.

      happy customer

      This is the best helmet I've ever used. It does everything very well, but I especially like that it doesn't lift at speed and try to choke me. I can even turn my head sidewise with the visor cracked and there is no difference in feel.

      Shoei X12 Helmet

      This helmet is everything advertised. Great air flow, quiet, improved visibility, and that quality feeling that Shoei is known for. I have had the RF1000, and the X11 Helmets. Both are great and the X12 continues that tradition of improvement. I added the Pinlock visor and insert because I ride in cooler weather and the Pinlock eliminates fogging completely. Great products, I would recommend to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

      Shoei X-Twelve The ultimate in Helmet Safety

      I was on a mission to find the helmet that offered the ultimate in safety features and comfort. My search led me to the X-Twelve. Once again Shoei stepped up to the plate and delivered a super high tech helmet. When I first put mine on I thought opps, too tight, I tried to fit it just like the Shoei instructions, after a few break in hours it is now extremely comfortable, plus giving me a confident feeling I have the best protection. Compared to my old HJC this X-Twelve is Rolls Royce quite. It amazes me the design of the new cooling vents on how much they improved the venting and still keeping the noise down. Everyone who sees it likes the style. The most important is the safety features, like the ERS to remove the helmet in the event of an accident a Shoei exclusive, plus a shell so tough it has to be cut with a laser. Yes it is a tad pricey, but what price can you put on your safety, this helmet can make a huge difference of walking away from an accident or carried off to the graveyard. I will not ride without a Shoei, and I am now convinced I got a lot of value for the money.

      AWESOME!!!

      I have been riding Arai for some time now and decided to tryout the new X-Twelve. The fit is great!! I am surprised how much quieter and ventilated this helmet is compared to my Arai Corsair. I would most definitely recommend this to anyone!! GREAT HELMET!!

      Like the new helmet

      Today I was able to test out my new Shoei X-Twelve helmet (size XL) that I purchased from motorcycle-superstore. The helmet is expensive and quite noisy with all vents open (I’m 6’6” & ride a R1200GS w/stock windscreen). I found that keeping the vent found directly above my forehead closed reduces the noisy and whistling dramatically (still provides plenty of airflow). Fit (for my oval shaped head) and build quality are very good.
