The Shoei X-Fourteen Marquez 5 Helmet has a red, white and blue color scheme, featuring Marquez’s signature ant logo on the top and number 93 on both sides as well as the back. A red and black ‘maze’ pattern wraps around the helmet.



The X-Fourteen has several 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 X-Fourteen.



You can customize the aerodynamics by switching out the standard rear flaps with narrower ones (sold 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. 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 $889.99

I'm not a big Marquez fan myself, so this design doesn't really do much for me despite the Shoei quality. :hello:

What I will say is that my Shoei X-14 Laverty version that I bought from Rider's Discount is a top-notch lid! It's awesome! The only difference with this one is the graphics. You will be getting a sweet lid at a great price from the guys at RD!!! These won't be around long so if you want one, you should get one before the snow starts to fall. :lol: And you'll be able to show it off to everyone when MM trades the #93 plate for the #1 soon. :wink:

Is the Marquez color scheme the only sale on the X-14 currently? Looking to upgrade my RF-1200 soon and love SHOEI quality!
