Customer Reviews for Shoei NXR - Valkyrie TC-1
Well above expectations
Firstly Sportsbikeshop were superb, they priced matched the helmet which saved me 70 quid then sent out a different size within a few days, faultless service. As to the helmet, well I had a Shark before and was really pleased with it and must admit I thought how much better can a helmet get for the extra money, and the answer is a lot better, superb ventilation, excellent fit, brilliant safety features (that I hope I'll never need) and best of all the weight, it feels so light and therefore much better on longer journeys. I'm not sure if I've got this right but at high speed it seems to be a lot less affected and more stream line somehow, the Shark felt like my head was being buffeted which is dramatically reduced with the Valkyre. All in all I'm well chuffed with it, highly recommended.Read more
Shoei is top again
Looks great, feels like quality. Very light helmet. Although I did find a slight whistling sound when going fast depending on the direction of the wind.Read more
Well worth it
This is a first class helmet, my last was the HJC IS17, which was good in its self but the Shoei is super light and wind noise is a lot quieter. The overall feel and construction of this helmet just says quality. It comes with the Pinlock insert, the ventilation is very good with the channels in the top of the helmet to assist with airflow over your head. Well worth the step up in cost from the HJC IS17.Read more
I've been wearing this for a couple of weeks now and I'm really impressed. The best thing about this lid is how light it is compared to others - you almost forget you're wearing it after a while. It's really comfy too, with great visibility, and really quiet below 60mph. It has good ventilation, with the lower front vent blowing upwards towards your forehead and helping to clear the visor (which only occasionally fogs up on very cold days - the provided Pinlock insert should eradicate that, though). The additional cost for a graphic scheme over the gloss black is pretty steep, but it's good quality and you soon forget about that. All in all, very pleased.Read more
I finally went all in and bought an expensive helmet.. And I am not disappointed..It's really comfortable ( if a little on the small side). And it is so light.. Great service from Sportsbikeshop, I would highly recommend it.Read more
Shoei really smart
This helmet came in the best packing I have ever seen. You knew it would not be damaged when you got into the 2nd box. When opened, it was clean with all the paper work and instructions. Perfect fit and a stunner of a helmet. Does not steam up like my other helmet (no names) with all the vents etc. Great product. Cheers.Read more
Great product, great price and great service all from these guys at Sportsbikeshop. Cheers.Read more

The NXR's compact design boasts a newly designed shell which is physically smaller and has an all new baseline. 4 intakes in the forehead along with 6 outlets produce an effective ventilation system, whilst wind noise has been reduced by utilising larger cheek and ear pads. An all new visor and base plate system allows hassle free fitting and the base plates can be adjusted front and rear via a rotating dial.
Product VideosShoei NXR Overview
Shoei NXR - Valkyrie TC-13D COMFORT LINERS - 3 dimensional interior pad for increased comfort whilst being worn.
4 SHELL SIZES - Different shell sizes throughout the range mean if you order a small helmet, you get a smaller shell; this reduces stress on the neck and combats fatigue.
ACCESSORIES - Supplied with a type F breath guard and type D chin curtain and clear CWR-1 Pinlock insert in the box.
AIM SHELL - Organic fibre and multi-composite fibres constructed in multiple layers for a shock absorbent shell with optimum rigidity.
DOUBLE D RING - Still the safest retention system; easy to handle and allows a perfect fit.
EAR PADS - Optional ear pads included to reduce ambient noise even further which is particularly handy for long tours.
EPS LINER SYSTEM WITH MULTIPLE DENSITIES - Protection is optimised through multiple density EPS as each density has different shock absorbing levels.
EQRS SECURITY SYSTEM - In the event of an accident the Emergency Quick Release System allows removal of interior pads whilst the helmet is still on the head. This will allow the emergency services to remove the helmet whilst keeping the casualties neck and spine straight with as little movement as possible.
INTEGRATED SPOILER - Optimises aerodynamic performance and creates a pocket of low pressure to draw air out of the ventilation system.
MULTIPLE VENTING AND EXTRACTION - 4 inlets on the brow and chin to guarantee a fresh air supply. 6 outlets at the rear to exhaust warm air from inside the helmet.

Shoei manufacture all of their products using the keywords quality & value, and have used these criteria ever since they began manufacturing motorcycle helmets in January 1960. The Shoei helmet brand has always been at the forefront of motorcycle helmet technology since its creation, and continues to lead in terms of technical innovation, design, and safety. With over 50 years experience, they continue to manufacture the entire Shoei helmet range in Japan to this very day. Whilst the brand can undoubtedly be described as premium, Shoei helmets offer fantastic value for money when you consider the serious levels of comfort, build quality and technology that go into every helmet they produce. Shoei develop all of their bike helmets with a specific philosophy in mind which they call the Shoei Safety Concept. The thinking behind their philosophy is that crash helmets must be developed to ensure maximum head protection, whilst also providing unrivalled levels of comfort. Ultimately, Shoei believe that a relaxed ride provided through comfort makes a highly important contribution to the rider's safety. The safety elements of each bike helmet come under one of two headings, Passive or Active Safety. Passive safety includes focus on such elements as impact absorption and material rigidity whilst active safety refers to emphasis on ventilation, fit and noise reduction. Shoei are now, truly, one of the most popular and most highly rated helmet brands in the world.See all Shoei products…
