We are excited to inform you that earlier today Shoei announced 18 new graphics and colors to their line-up for 2011-2012! Here is a sneak peek of the new colors and graphics!

Shoei X-12 Helmets

Since its introduction in 2003, the X-Eleven has been the motorcycle-racing helmet that all others are judged by. For the 2010 model year, Shoei engineers were faced with the grueling task of improving on what is already considered to be the best-performing racing helmet ever conceived. Born from racing, the all-new Shoei X-Twelve Helmet combines Shoeis 50 years of helmet building experience with the very latest technology and most advanced materials to bring you the racing helmet of the future. Throughout its history, Shoei has relied on feedback from professional racers around the globe to continually improve its products, and everything learned along the way has now culminated in the finest motorcycle racing helmet ever developed the all-new X-Twelve!

Shoei RF-1100 Helmets

Shoei helmets have improved on the Shoei RF-1100 Helmets by adding a host of improvements to increase rider comfort and overall performance. This is the new Premium Sport and Sports touring helmet on the market. For years the RF1000 has been the bench mark for high end sport/touring helmets. But the design is now dated and needs some updates. For 2011 and 2010 Shoei has remodeled the helmet with the new Shoei RF1100 helmet. They have apparently been listening to the consumer and have added a removable liner and increased the number of shell sizes to 5 total.

Shoei Multitec Modular Helmets

Looking for convenience, versatility, and security all in one? Welcome to the functional world of the Shoei Multitec. Recognized for the convenience and versatility provided by its ability to convert instantly to an open-face configuration, the Multitec’s modular design allows riders to perform tasks that would normally require the removal of a full-face helmet. Its streamlined and aerodynamic shape, impressively quiet riding traits, excellent ventilation, and luxurious fit provide riders with unparalleled performance and comfort, all with the versatility of a true two-in-one helmet.

I want Shoei to make a dual visor helmet, for half the year it's dark when I leave the house in the morning. I hate having to bring two shields all the time. I usually end up cracking one of them every couple months, at 50+ a pop that get expensive fast.

I hear ya man! Internal visors are definitely handy, but they also add to the weight and complexity of the helmet. They also require a gap between the eps liner and the shell for the shield to retract into. I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for Shoei or Arai to put one of those in their helmets.

One good compromise is sticking one of these on your clear shield:

Helmet Sunblocker Shields Competition Accessories

I used one for several years and it actually helps quite a bit.
