SHOEI P.F.S. - Personal Fitting System
A good and stable fit of the helmet in every riding situation is essential for the active safety of a motorbike helmet. To adjust the outstanding fit of our helmet models to individual head shapes and thus contribute to even more comfort and safety when riding a motorbike, SHOEI has developed a system for customised fitting, called the Personal Fitting System.
Analysis of head shape
At first, the head is measured with a specially developed measuring instrument. The obtained data are then entered into a software programme. Based on this data and the desired helmet model from our product range, the software generates a recommendation for the helmet size as well as a list of any necessary adjustment positions in the upper head area. The cheek pads can also be adjusted independently of this process.
Adjusting the helmet
With the help of the recommendation, the head padding of the desired SHOEI helmet model is first provisionally fitted with special fitting pads. After a try-on and any necessary fine-tuning, the pads are finally fixed in place. The helmet is thus adapted to the individual head shape.
Adjustable helmet models
The Personal Fitting System can be used for all current SHOEI helmet models, as well as for some models from previous generations.
Time required for the adjustment
The determination of the head shape takes about 10 minutes, the adjustment and individual fine-tuning usually takes an additional 20 to 30 minutes.
The recommended retail price for the fitting is £50. However, the actual costs depend on the time and material expenditure. If intermediate sizes of head and cheek pads from SHOEI's range of accessories are required for the fitting, these may be charged additionally. This also applies to adjustments of already used SHOEI helmets or helmets that have been brought along.
The individual adjustment of SHOEI helmet models can only be carried out at a very small number of fully trained and certified SHOEI specialist dealers. We are proud to be one of them.
P.F.S. Is expected to be available in our Cheltenham store from October 2023.
