Shoei X-TwelveAs an insurance company, Rider Insurance always advocates the use of safety equipment. Any kind of gear that is made to protect the motorcyclist is important. For instance, the Shoei X-12 Helmet is a modern age helmet with new safety technology.

The X-12 is born from racing. It is engineered to be Snell compliant, which has higher standards than the DOT (Department of Transportation). It features many proprietary technologies such as the quick release self-adjusting base plate system, which allows the windscreen to be easily opened. It then closes it with a very snug fit and precise seal. Ventilation was a key concern of the helmet designers. Passages throughout the inner liner and the vents that intake and exhaust the air are incorporated in the design. Side extractor vents take hot, humid air from within the helmet and vent it outward. The Areo Edge 2 Spoiler allows the passing air to push the helmet down rather than lift it up.

The liner is fully removable and made from a 3D Max Dry material. It is fully washable and easy to remove and install. The cheek pads are available in different thicknesses to accommodate different riders. With safety in mind the helmet is equipped with an emergency quick release system. It allows the cheek pads to be quickly removed from the injured rider's helmet. The helmet can then be slid off.

A race inspired helmet also comes with race inspired prices. The helmet can get pricey but starts around $680. It can get more expensive with race replica graphics and different finishes. Just remember that safety has no price!
