Among the most important and widely studied properties in racing, no stone was left unturned during the development of the X-Fifteen’s aerodynamics. Designed and refined in SHOEI’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel facility, the X-Fifteen boasts impressive improvements in all aerodynamic performance measurables.
Overheating while riding and racing can have a direct impact on rider fatigue and safety, which is precisely why ventilation performance was a crucial feature while designing the X-Fifteen. Wind tunnel testing throughout development revealed optimal airflow in multiple riding positions, but none more important than the aerodynamic, tucked racing position.
RACING SHIELD SYSTEM
The X-Fifteen’s CWR-F2R racing shield system features improved visibility, functionality and performance over its predecessor, and like all SHOEI shield systems, protects against 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays. Thanks to SHOEI’s innovative 3D injection-molding process, the CWR-F2R shield offers a distortion-free view throughout the entire X-Fifteen eyeport.
