Shoei X-Fourteen Laverty Helmet

The Shoei X-Fourteen Laverty Helmet features a similar graphic to the one of former MotoGP and current World Superbike racer Eugene Laverty. Honoring Laverty's Irish heritage, this helmet has a green color scheme and shamrock pattern.



The X-Fourteen has several brand new features that make it even better than the X-Twelve. The shell shape has been redesigned to improve the aerodynamics of the helmet, including a brand new, patent-pending Rear Stabilizer. The Rear Stabilizer works to “maximize high-speed stability while reducing negative forces on the rider.” You will experience 50% less buffeting, 10% less drag, and a 3% lift reduction with the new X-Fourteen.



You can customize the aerodynamics by switching out the standard rear flaps with narrower ones (available separately). Shoei takes the customization a step further by incorporating an innovative five-stage rotating dial that allows you to fine-tune the shield and base plate.

The X-Fourteen’s ventilation system has received several upgrades. Now the cheek pads have a cooling “tube” that allows fresh air to enter the helmet, cooling the rider’s cheek area. Allowing cool air to enter the helmet isn’t enough, though. The side air outlets of the helmet have been re-positioned to better allow hot, moist air to leave the helmet. Overall, the X-Fourteen has six air intakes and six exhaust outlets.



A few changes have been made to the face shield and shield locking mechanism. First, the CWR-F Race Shield (equipped with Pinlock EVO fog-resistant system) has innovative new ribs on the edges to help eliminate bending. The X-Fourteen now has a double shield locking mechanism, designed to prevent unwanted shield openings while riding. The QR-E Base Plate System on this helmet not only makes changing shields easy, but also blocks out unwanted water and wind when closed.

The X-Fourteen's 6-layer AIM+ shell construction and multi-layer EPS work together to redirect impact energy in the case of a crash. An Emergency Quick Release System (E.Q.R.S.) is built into the helmet to allow medical personnel to safely remove the cheek pads and helmet from an injured rider’s head.



The 3D Max-Dry Interior is customizable with optional sizes for each section of the center pad. Made of Max-Dry material, the inside “absorbs and dissipates sweat twice as fast as tradition nylon.” The interior is completely removable, washable, replaceable and adjustable.

MSRP $839.99

I got this helmet last week and it's pretty darn sweet.

It looks a lot better in person and with a dark smoke visor.

Matches my '16 KRT 10R to boot.

Thanks for the great deal Mike.

Hey man, I've been trying to source out a location local to me to try this thing on. Have you tried the RF-1200? trying to understand if this one is the same fit.

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.
