New: Bradley Smith's first Shoei rep

Shoei XR1100 Bradley priced at £429.99

Shoei have released this Bradley Smith replica XR1100. Featuring the same Union Jack design as the Tech 3 rider, the XR1100 Bradley is priced at £429.99.

Here's some details from Shoei's UK importer Feridax:

As the official distributor for Shoei helmets in the UK, Feridax are pleased to announce the new for 2012 Bradley Smith replica XR1100

The Tech 3 Moto2 star, 21, has utilised the technical advances of Shoei premium helmets for five seasons in Grand Prix racing and will fly the cross of St. George proudly this weekend at Silverstone for the British Grand Prix and you can do the same with his first ever replica (£429.99 at SRP).

On the eve of the British Grand Prix, Bradley said: “I finished second in the race last year and I just can’t wait to get out on track in front of my home crowd and go one better! This is also the first year I’ve got a replica helmet out and – it sounds cheesy – I feel quite honoured by that and it is mega to see people out there wearing it.”

The XR1100 boasts an unrivalled visor mechanism that is entirely draft-free thanks to the "suction seal" self-adjusting concept. The improved visor system also provides a broader field of vision and features a modified and enlarged Pinlock insert for maximum clarity in all conditions.

With rider comfort firmly in mind, the XR1100’s entirely redesigned ventilation system maintains an ideal helmet climate that incorporates a negative pressure system with a special extraction technology to guarantee the effective and continuous discharge of warm air, even at very low speeds.

Sophisticated spoilers are integrated in the shell to optimise air flow; making the helmet extremely stable even at high speeds along with a ventilation duct layout to minimise ventilation noise. Riders on the move are also easily able to adjust inlet vents on the chin, brow and on the back for optimum climate control.

All interior features have been redesigned to enhance wearer comfort with a perfect ergonomic fit thanks to a 3D centre pad which comfortably encases the head. The centre pad, cheek pads and chin strap cover are all detachable and washable.

The XR1100 is also available in a large variety of single colours, exciting graphic options and other replicas, priced from £329.99 to £429.99.
