Staff Favorite: Shoei VFX-W Helmet – K-Dub 3


This week, our Staff Favorite Pick features Jace and his dream helmet, the Shoei VFX-W Helmet – K-Dub 3.  Jace works at our retail store in Smithville, MO.  He has been racing hare scrambles since 2006, and has several championships under his belt.  He recently made the decision to step up to a Shoei helmet.

“What first drew you to the K-Dub 3?”
I’ve always wanted a Shoei, but the style and color of this one really jumped out to me.  I had to have it.  The one in the store keeps catching my eye.  The graphic is awesome.


“What is your favorite feature, besides the great looks?”
It’s unbelievably comfortable.  It’s a really great fit.  And it’s crazy light.  It will be great for racing.

“Will you use this helmet primarily for racing, or for everyday trail riding?”
Oh, this is going to be my #1 helmet for everything!

“What is your current helmet?”
I have a Fly Kinetic Inversion.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good helmet.  But, I’m really looking forward to stepping up to a Shoei.  I really wish I had it for this weekend!

“Do you have a race this weekend?”
Yeah, there’s a hare scrambles this weekend in Iowa.

Thank, Jace!  Good luck at the race this weekend!  And let us know what you think of your VFX-W once you get a chance to race in it.
