Shoei aims to exceed the high standards that its customers expect in terms of quality, comfort, value and care, and now there are now five more reasons to choose a Shoei, in the shape of a new free 5-year warranty.

In the unlikely event that there is a defect in the build quality or materials used in the construction of a helmet, then Shoei will repair, replace or refund against those defects immediately.

The warranty is free and applies to all Shoei helmet purchases. It is valid for a period of five years of 'normal' usage from the date of purchase.

The warranty covers both the quality of workmanship and the materials that the helmet is constructed from. It does not cover helmets that have been subject to an accident, misuse, abuse, negligence, modification or improper maintenance. In addition, fluorescent paints that are used on certain Shoei models are also exempt from coverage, as the passage of time and exposure to the elements may see those finishes naturally fade.

The warranty covers all Shoei helmet product purchases (within the UK) from 1st January 2013. All original purchasers of a Shoei helmet are covered, but the warranty is non-transferable to subsequent owners.
