Shoei launches Hill replica helmet

A replica helmet has been launched for British Superbike contender Tommy Hill.

Shoei has unveiled the XR1100 Hill replica helmet which has been designed to match the rider's Worx Crescent Suzuki Superbike.

The blue and white helmet is fitted with Shoei's draught-free suction sealed visor and SHARP has given the replica the maximum five-star rating.

The Hill XR1100 replica also allows the rider to see more while wearing the helmet.

Its redesigned ventilation system also features Shoei's negative pressure air extraction system to provide a better flow of air inside the lid, even at low speeds.

Wind-tunnel developed spoilers are also fitted for stability at speed and reduce wind noise.

But riders who are interested in the helmet may have to shop around to reduce items such asmotorcycle breakdown cover in order to afford the costly Hill XR1100.

The Hill replica is available in four shell sizes, covering XS to XL. It is available in shops now for £379.99.
