Marc Márquez premiered at Motorland Aragon the new Shoei X-Spirit III, the Japanese brand racing helmet with MotoGP technology that will hit the market in 2016. Meanwhile, Shoei has already advanced us many details and can ensure that the X-Spirit third generation represents a major step forward in aerodynamics and ventilation, two key aspects of any racing helmet.
Ventilation is now a much more sofisticated aspect with six air inlets and as many exits, all individually adjustable. But the big news is that now the chin air intakes channel the air inside the EPS to the cheekpads, so that the air goes through the padding, cooling the interior and improving sweat and moisture evacuation. And because there's more space, oxygenation is also better. Undoubtedly a breakthrough for a sporty helmet.
The Shoei X-Spirit III will hit the market in early 2016 and in Motocard we're looking forward it already, just to be the first to offer it to you. For now, we have to wait, although Marc Márquez has already sent us his impressions after Motorland Aragon premiere: "It’s an incredible helmet, improved in all its parts, with particularly attention to the aerodynamic design. The ventilation has improved too. In fact, there are more exists for the air. I like the shape. In the last months I have given my comments and suggestions. I would like to thank Shoei for their full commitment to safety and for their constant dedication to development."
