Mike, does the x14 have pockets in the cheek area for speakers? the x-12 does not. I know the rf1100, and rf1200 do. I am wondering if shoei designated these as "race helmets" and didn't make a cut out for those that wear communicators and utilize this platform for their helmet choice.

please pm price for a medium for me for the Laverty. thank you, Ski

May we all, get to have a chance to ride the fast one, walk away wiser when we crash one, keep hopin that the best one is the last one.

Yes really. This is a US helmet so will be different than a EURO version. The X-14 doesn't have speaker pockets.

I've tried on a RF-1200 and I'd say they fit the same but then again I never used to be able to wear Shoei's at all because the helmet shape was more oval then round.

Apparently Shoei has redesigned their shape recently to more of a middle ground between oval and round and now they fit me perfectly.

So if you have a new RF-1200 or tried on a new one I'd say you should be good but I'd send Mike at Riders Discount a private message or call him to be sure.
Thank you

So, I finally pulled the trigger on this helmet.

Went to CycleGear over the weekend to accompany a guy wanting to shop there. Turns out they had both Shoei helmets I was comparing, the RF-1200 and X-14. Tried on the 1200 once again, then the X-14.
I don't know how strange shaped my head is, but the 1200 was good previously and pretty good this time as well. However, once I put on the X-14, it was like not wearing a helmet at all, more like wearing a hat. Padding inside the X-14 was more soft and seemed to contour better around my head. So, I'm really looking forward to this helmet. Additionally, I check on the X-14, there are holes for the Siena system, just like there are on the RF-1200. Granted, the helmet I saw was the Red, Marquez 93. I'm hoping the Laverty is the same and has all the same features.
