SHOEI Z-7 VARIABLE Features
The shield system of the Z-7 VARIABLE keeps the riders face protected against wind, dirt, and harmful UV rays. With 3D injection molding, this shield system provides a distortion-free view for the user.
To enhance the helmet ventilation for the Z-7 VARIABLE, two layers of EPS liner are present. These allow for air to go through its tunnels to effectively exchange humid air with one thats cool and refreshing.
SHOEI made use of the in-house wind tunnel to improve the ventilation of the Z-7 VARIABLE helmet. The company continuously develops and maintains the balance between airflow and silence to provide quality products to the riders.
Design, Build, and Parts of the SHOEI Z-7 VARIABLE
The Z-7 VARIABLE comes with improved aerodynamics to eliminate stress caused by wind pressure. This feature helps reduce the total weight of the helmet when worn, which helps in increasing comfort too.
The helmets outer shell is made of FRP or fiberglass. For its shape, it is achieved using a heat-setting plastic resin. AIM also integrates organic fibers and 3D shaping for the Z-7 VARIABLE to have a durable yet lightweight shell.
AIM shell consists of a variety of organic and glass fiber layers. Unlike outer shells made of glass fibers only, the AIM exterior shell is lighter and more elastic. Additionally, its also more flexible and resistant due to its special fibers.
