SHOEI Z-7 EQUATE Blue Black
The SHOEI Z-7 EQUATE is a helmet designed to have a lightweight, compact, and comfortable fit. It has a rounded cap that offers a classic feel, yet adopts the aerodynamic shape to it. This shape suppresses the helmet’s lift and drags while riding.
This specific model features both function and aesthetics that are typical of SHOEI helmets. Plus, comfort is still considered, hence, giving the SHOEI Z-7 EQUATE enhanced ventilation and better shield adhesion.
SHOEI Z-7 EQUATE Helmet Features
CWR-1 Shield for Natural and Clear Vision
The newly enhanced CWR 1 Shield gives a rider clear and natural vision, plus enhanced optical aspects. Aside from these, minimum distortion is present due to the application of varying thickness and radius on each shield area.
You’ll also find ribs at the top and bottom of the shield. Their presence helps improve shield rigidity while preventing it from bending due to wind pressure.
Shield System for Quietness + Improved Adhesion
The presence of an airtight and aerodynamic system lessens the presence of wind noise and blocks unnecessary presence of noise. To further decrease wind noise, equipping a removable ear-pad is highly effective.
Design, Build, and Parts of the Z-7 EQUATE Helmet
AIM or Advanced Integrated Matrix is SHOEI’s shell structure. It’s composed of strong, complex layers of glass fiber and 3D-formed organic fabrics.
Aerodynamic Aspects of Drag -5% and Lift -1%
Unlike the Z-6, the Drag and Lift of SHOEI Z-7 EQUATE have improved by 5% and 1%, respectively. For its aerodynamic aspects, it directly affects the load and pressure on a rider’s neck.
SHOEI also optimized the aerodynamic shape of the helmet, making it firmer and more practical for use. It is done via repetitive tests via wind tunnel in a huge facility.
Aside from the other upgrades and optimizations, the Z-7 Equate integrates an enhanced shield system. It offers more security and adequate air-tightness for the helmet.
Certifications and Warranties
The SHOEI Z-7 EQUATE is a helmet that comes with a 5-year warranty. And since it’s JIS-certified, it means that the helmet meets the prescribed standards of the JIS. Plus, we can guarantee that quality control was adequately used in the production of the helmet.
SHOEI Z-7 EQUATE – Available Colors and Sizes
