The name Shoei has been synonymous with what we’ve come to regard as premium in the motorcycle helmet market for a very long time now. The brand carries hard won credentials that the hundreds of loyal men and women who work in the companies’ Japanese factory wear with great pride.

The evolution and production of this range of world class helmets is a meticulous process that combines the very latest in technology advancement with consumer feedback, modern testing practices, advanced materials, and over 50 years of helmet building experience.

Just like the very first Shoei helmet built by their founder way back in 1959, every Shoei offered for sale today is still handmade in Japan utilizing a sophisticated process that involves over 50 people for each and every helmet.

Shoei prides itself in building the very best helmets that their state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies will allow, but they also maintain the core belief that good old fashioned field research yields the highest performing, most functional helmets producible.

These helmets are the result of countless hours of conceptualization as well as intense research and development, but equally as important is the time spent testing with the most hardcore critics of them; all of their professional racing teams. From their MotoGP race team service to world-class racers like Marc Marquez, Bradley Smith, Josh Grant, and Dean Wilson, these helmets are put through the ringer, resulting in the fine-tuned masterpieces that await you in store today.

The range is now available here in Ireland. To see them and arrange for a fitting call any of the team here at Franklin Motorcycles on 015385005 and we’ll be only too happy to look after you.
