Shoei X-Fourteen Ride Day at Chuckwalla | Video Recap
The Shoei X-Fourteen Ride Day was a perfect experience. Held at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in Desert Center, Calif., the day was dedicated to Shoei’s new flagship helmet, the X-Fourteen.
For us Southern California riders, Chuckwalla is a gem. A technical track with elevation changes, cambered corners and it is the perfect setting for the new X-Fourteen race-ready helmet, proven and developed with insights from people like two-time MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez, Bradley Smith and Yukio Kagayama.During the Shoei X-Fourteen Ride Day, Alpinestars, Coretech, Reggie Pridmore’s Class School, Graves Yamaha and a few other vendors were on hand; they supplied everyone with anything that might have needed for the day. MotoAmerica and Shoei riders also rode during the helmet’s launch at Chuckwalla, including Garret Gerloff, Jake Lewis and Michael Gilbert.The Shoei X-14 is a race-ready lid that conforms to all racing leagues. For track day enthusiasts, amateur and professional racers alike, this is more than a worthy product that Shoei have spent years developing.Read our Shoei-Fourteen Review.
