SHOEI has been dedicated to the development of superior helmet technology since 1958.
What is amazing even by today’s standards is the pace at which SHOEI Helmet became popular all over the world: starting in the late sixties, SHOEI’s reputation as a top quality brand spread first over the U.S., then later all over the motor markets of Europe. What is also amazing is that everybody who was ever involved in the motor field can spell the name SHOEI, in spite of the fact that we are a team of less than 500 people worldwide.
But what is most amazing, especially to a Western observer, is the dedication of our factory staff. SHOEI manufactures all helmets (and all helmet parts) in Japan, even though manufacturing costs there have long since exceeded the level in many European countries.
