The Z series based on the concept of lightweight and compact evolved into the Z-8.
The characteristic cut line on the shell side is inherited from the previous generation Z-7, but everything is new and high performance.
SHOEI popular series is long-awaited Z-8 from March!
The mouth is tighter than the Z-7, which is a little disconcerting at first, but after you put it on, you'll feel that the lower part of your face is also held in place, and the overall fit of the head is extremely good.
With the included chin curtain, there is no sensation of wind penetration from the bottom, and it is quiet when running.
Newly designed shield center lock mechanism is easy to understand operation because of lock button type, and it is smooth to open and close a shield by holding a center part to apply force equally to both sides.
As before, it comes with the Pinlock EVO lens, which is an anti-fog sheet, but this area has been increased by about 10% compared to the Z-7, and it covers almost the entire field of view, which is also attractive!
[Vision & Ventilation
We compacted shield base to save space and designed rearward pin position to hold PINLOCK of anti-fogging seat.
This greatly enhances the side visibility.
Shield lock is newly placed in the center to reduce deflection when opening and closing the shield and to improve adhesion with window rubber.

Shield fine-adjustment mechanism, which is followed from Z-7, is changed to a lever type for easier operation.
