Shoei VFX-W Maelstrom Helmet.
The SHOEI VFX-W Maelstrom has a bold lightning-bolt-styled graphic on the top with turbulent graphics beneath.

The SHOEI Maelstrom comes in three different color options; TC-1 (red/blue/black), TC-4 (green/black), TC-8 (orange/black).

Shoei VFX-W Helmet Sizing
Wrap a tape measure horizontally around your forehead. Select the helmet that is the closest fit to that size. A helmet should fit snug on your head. If it moves while wearing, it is too large. If it is painful to wear, it is too small.
