Customer Reviews for Shoei RYD - White
Nice lid with great quality and value
Really happy with this helmet, it's comfy, seems to have decent ventilation and looks nice with any bike. Initially I had the orange but I returned for white as I wanted something a little more neutral and visible. SBS were brilliant to deal with as usual for my exchange. Quality and finish seem very high and wind noise is slightly better than my HJC FG-ST lid, but you'd still want ear protection on longer journeys at sustained high speed. Can't imagine anyone being disappointed if they went for this.Read more
Good touring helmet.
This replaced an older Shoei that I have been very pleased with. Fit is fantastic. Snug with no movement. Large visor with Pinlock. Good ventilation. I use sunglasses to ride with which comfortably slide into position. I also like the emergency pull tab feature to release the inner pads in the event of an accident. Although I hope its never used!Read more
Had used Arai up to now - this was my first Shoei and I am impressed. Nice build quality, quiet and performs well in safety tests. Money well spent. Delivered in 24hrs - amazingRead more
Very good helmet
Lightweight, quiet, comfortable and reasonably priced. My previous helmet was a Shoei GT Air which was good but the RYD is better, it's lighter, much more comfortable especially where the strap is located, and around the cheek pads, it flows a lot more air, is very stable and at £300 is very well priced. Shoei call this a budget helmet but nothing could be further from the truth it's a premium lidRead more
Shoei RYD review
Really comfortable , great ventilation, wide aperture.. great visibility... On the downside I found i got a lot of wind noise coming in around my ears ...but fine with earplugs.Read more
Shoei quality for less.
My previous helmet was an NXR (Shoei always seem to suit my head shape) but the RYD gives the same levels of quality, and an extra Sharp star, for less money. Not warm enough to open the vents yet but no problems with condensation, I transferred the NXR's deflector which may help. Some wind noise but not too intrusive. Lifesavers slightly impaired by the edges of the Pinlock but otherwise a good wide view. The embossed lettering is a classy touch!Read more
Quality helmet that is light and comfortable to wear. Quieter than my previous helmet (ARAI) and has much better ventilation. The Pinlock was easy to fit in place as was the chin skirt that prevents drafts. I purchased a small (55-56cm) and it fits perfectly. Overall I am extremely happy with my purchase.Read more
I recently purchased an HJC IS17 but the wind and road noise were dreadful. I had come from a Shoei Raid 2 which I had for 10 years so opted to get this Ryd and its miles ahead in terms of quality compared to both. At motorway speeds it's quieter than the HJC compared to say 30mph. It's very light and comfortable to wear for extended periods of time and they've done a fantastic job with the visor. You can't see the edges of the top or bottom of the helmet when it's on so its truly as if you are wearing a wrap around visor, it's brilliantly clear and provides a great field of vision around the sides. The vents provide extremely good ventilation especially the chin vent from the second it's open it provides a rush of air upwards. I highly recommend this helmet for the price I'd say it offers unbeatable spec.Read more
Sharp 5 Star Helmet
Well made. Reasonable weight. Option of light reactive visor. My head measures just over 56 cm so I tried the Small first. It was painfully tight across the sides. A Medium fits comfortably without being loose.Read more
Quiet super comfy love it
Very comfortable fit. Very quiet. Top air vents are subtle, sometimes too much, but a quick tilt of the head and I get a quick blast of air, which I find better than a constant blast.Read more

With over 50 years experience, they continue to manufacture the entire Shoei helmet range in Japan to this very day.
