Prefect lid, tight to get on perfect when on, very little wind noise, stable and light, very good quality.
My first.....
20 February 2024 by Sean R
... SHOEI for 30 years. Still a damn good fit, love how you can get thinner or thicker padding for the inside too. Comes with Pinlock antimist screen to fit inside of visor. Advises that daylight use only, though, I cannot see any difference when it is fitted. Easy to maintain, easy to fit visor and remove should you need to. Only thing not keen on is the centre screen lock, although wearing glasses means I steam up a lot anyway, so nearly always open just a touch. Air vents are very effective, as you tilt head, you can feel the airflow coming through.
My girl picked the lid for the pic, thought it would look cool, and it does, though not seen myself in shop windows.... Same weight as my other lid, though feels a lot lighter. Finish is matt, looks the bollo*ks. Has easy release cheek pads should you be in an accident and needs removed, though I doubt anyone would notice.
Again, Shoei have made an amazing lid.
Sooooo comfy!

I've not ridden in the Faust as yet. Its a replacement lid after a lil crash. Aside from my Worth Wraap MX lid the Faust is the best fitting lid I've put on my noggin. I was looking at an Arai but then was handed the Shoei to try. It was immediately comfortable. Helmets are of course all different as are heads so use SBS as that's their USP. Go there and try some lids on first as you may get lucky with a lid but it's way better to try a few and choose something that fits.
Very Aerodynamic
31 January 2024 by Gary S
Had a gt air before in a small size, fitted well apart from a bit tight over the ears especially putting it on. Had to poke my fingers up inside to fold tops of my ears back in place. I know how to correctly put a helmet on by the way! Anyway purchased an NXR2 size small again but the problem with my ears was worse as I think personally the NXR2 is tighter fitting. I opted to try the next size up, medium. This solved my problem completely and fits nice and snug but really comfortable. Maybe I should have had a medium size gt air beforehand but it didn't seem too bad.
I've always had helmets with graphics but I'm really liking
the style of my new helmet in basalt grey looks very modern and stylish.
It's quiet enough for me but that's relative to riding position, screen etc. I ride a Yamaha mt09 gen 3 with genuine small fly screen. I wear ear plugs.
I like the central opening mechanism and think it's a common sense decision for it to be there. You can operate it with either!
Shoei NXR 2 - MM93 Retro TC-10

Bought to replace an ageing Shoei RYD, great fit and significantly quieter and more aerodynamic and a bargain at £299. Sportsbikeshop and the NXR2 helmet recommended!
Perfect for me

Usual Shoei quality, fits as per my usual sizing so no issues at all (59.5 = Large), graphics look nice in black, silver and red. Such a lightweight lid !

First class service from SBS, delivered promptly !

Fast delivery and great service overall, helmet came well packaged. Helmet is comfy and quiet this my first shoei and even though I've only worn it a few times I'm so impressed with it ultra lightweight design straps are easy to use and visor isn't too fiddly when wearing gloves.
Really happy with my purchase

As you would expect from Shoei. Feels premium, well made, well packaged, comes with a pinlock insert anti fog nose piece and some silicone oil for the visor seal.

As others have said, the padding is a bit tight to get the lid on, but that is a good thing, reducing noise and improving the fit.

The vents are incredible, loads of options to get your head a comfortable temperature and stop any steaming up

Crash helmet

Fabulous service. Really happy with our product. Thankyou for sending so quickly.
Up with the best

Top notch quality. The vents are all glove friendly once you get the knack. Top vents are a bit noisy when fully open but fine halfway and that's good enough because the forehead vent is superb for letting in fresh air. It has a good long chin curtain. Visor change is easy. Paint finish is top notch. Super quiet. The brow lining can be a bit tight on the forehead but I think that will ease over time. Spares are cheap I thought. I am an Arai man but I think Shoei has just pipped them here.
Excellent service

Fantastic service from start to finish SBS have done it again. This is my third Shoei helmet and the quality keeps getting better and better. My XR1100 had some a few miles and is old enough to warrant a replacement. SBS price for this graphics lid was lower than the Motorcycle Show "best ever prices" and if there are any issues are there to help. Decided against the GT -Air as am not a fan of the integral visor and would rather have a quieter smaller shell size. Also double D strap is a basic for track use so I tend to go big on safety. Hadn't noticed over time just how loose my old lid was with the compression of the cheek pads. This feels so secure! Arrived next day exactly as promised. Couldn't recommend more.

Good quiet helmet but not keen on the centre position for visor lock/unlock. I keep fiddling to find the 'button' and prefer the side position of the original NXR which I found much better to use. Outstanding service from SportsBikeShop as always.
Consistently good

This is my third NXR2 Shoei helmet. Love the way it fits perfectly. Very quiet. Lightweight. Top quality. Bought another so soon because I prefer the double d ring fastener, not the ratchet fastener. Sorted for helmets for quite awhile.

Getting back into biking after 20 years. I went with this helmet as had a 5 star sharp test. First I started with a medium and changed to small. Easy to arrange and tried in store. This helmet feels quality. Great service from Sportsbikeshop.
Good looking comfortable helmet
26 October 2023 by Andy H
Had a few Shoei helmets. They have all been a good fit and this one is no different. It's comfortable and I like the design. Plenty of vents, although it's been to cold to use them at the moment.
Nice helmet but not for a sportsbike
23 October 2023 by Nicholas E
The fit & finish of the helmet is good, the interior is soft though the skull cap is a little loose fitting, more so than previous Shoei helmets I've owned. In use it's quiet & stable however it's not really suitable for a sportsbike. At the back of the helmet there is a shaped lip which is fine on a upright bike but on a sportsbike in a prone position, this lip fouls on the neck collar of clothing forcing the helmet forward into a position which is not comfortable & good for vision.
So in summary great helmet but for more focussed bikes, get a track biased helmet.
