When my head was hung out in the wind the helmet was very quiet as it poked through the air, lap after lap on the track. On the street it feels even lighter and quieter, obviously speeds are down considerably, so as I poured over my post-ride notes I had highlights that included multiple mentions of the large field of view, stability at 65–80 mph, and overall comfort. Once again, Shoei has delivered an excellent motorcycle helmet design with its latest version of the X-Fourteen. It ticks all the boxes, looks great, feels even better, and whether you are riding on the road or track, it provides a level of protection that justifies its price tag. If you are in the market for a new lid, the best way to come to grips with spending a little extra cash for a premium helmet like the X-Fourteen is this: How much is your head worth?
