Lightweight helmet.

I tend to fall between small and medium in helmet sizing but this was definitely a medium for me. I tried on the helmet in store and ordered the colour I wanted, I was concerned when the new helmet arrived because it was much, much tighter on the cheek pads but these bedded in after a few uses. I wear earplugs and if they're not pushed in fully the helmet tends to dislodge them slightly when donning it, making it seem noisy. Fitting them correctly and the hlemet is quiet. It seems a draughty helmet - almost like the vents are open which they aren't. Great for summer, winter? We'll see. Would I buy it again knowing what I know now? Yes.

Very quiet, visor can be finicky
05 May 2024 by Angelo
Good quality helmet with excellent finish. Ventilation is effective.

Only comment is that sometimes the visor needs some encouragement to lock down properly or it will whistle. I'm sure some silicone lube would solve it though.

Would probably only pay sale price for it, £499 is a bit too much considering Arai's offerings.

I always liked my Shoei helmets, even though after the previous one I decided I wouldn't buy another. The plastic vent at the front, falling off on 2 consecutive models around the 2 yr mark, kinda disappointed me.

I tried a couple of HJC and bits started falling off way earlier. After my 3rd RPHA70 visor failure (amazing helmet, awful visor), I went for a new helmet, though I told myself I wouldn't buy another Shoei, I tried on an NXR2 last time I was in Leeds. Soon as it was on my head, it felt great. Got home, and wished I'd bought it... Only to find an *amazing* deal on the website (early colour scheme)

Quiet (top vents closed) and comfy. Feels light on the head when riding, very stable at speed and good visibility. My only gripe is that the visor doesn't have a good airgap position. It's either 1mm or ~45mm. @1mm my glasses fog up, at 45mm the bottom of the visor is in my eyeline and very distracting. The vents work pretty well, but increase noise quite a bit, especially when checking blind spots. Would be easy 5stars with better visor mounting.

Came delivered by DPD, a day earlier than expected, nice. SBS Box had cleared been wanged in transit, one corner/edge badly stoved in, and small damage transferred to the Shoei box, thought I might send it back but on closer inspection I felt the inner box and extra packing by SBS had done it's job and protected the helmet.

Lovely helmet, bit of a tight squeeze at first but once settled it fits lovely. I've always had modular helmets but I'm really glad that I chose this one. I chose to put the dark tint visor on, which works really well. (Pillion).

I spent a few hours in Sportsbikeshop at Boston trying on various makes of helmets. The staff there were very helpful and friendly - thanks to all! Having had a Shoe GT-3 Air Swayer helmet before in M size I eventually landed up deciding to go with a Shoei NXR2 also in size M. The Shoei NXR2 is a slightly neater fitting helmet than my old 7 year old Shoei GT-3 Air Swayer and I was a bit worried that it was too tight - however, after a few hours of wearing it, it is now the perfect fit. My head size is 58cm and a bit 'oblong', so the upper range of the size M fit. The NXR2 is a really quiet helmet compared to my previous Shoei. Also, the Nocturne TC4 version is a great looking helmet, the red/green pops out at you, and the predominant white makes you a bit more visible on the road. Very happy with this purchase!

This is the second Shoei that I have bought from SBS, used their fitting guide and fits perfectly.. Only slight problem is the visor is a bit fiddly to open, other than that a brilliant helmet, highly recommended.

Love this thing
24 April 2024 by Andy M
My last two helmets have been Shoei, and I'm a bit of a self confessed brand snob, so I had to have another one. I did consider an Arai, but they don't tend to fit my head very well.
Within 5 mins of pulling the Shoei over my head it was comfortable, - It's also very light. Initially it was slightly tight, but not for long, it moulded to my head shape very quickly. I wear specs and I can easily slide them into place without the arms getting too squeezed.
I had initially ordered the black and red Prologue TC1 design, but I swapped it for the White/red/green Nocturne TC4.
The return was really easy to sort,- and I had the new one within a couple of days.
As well as being light, it's quiet and stable,- I've just to experience any wobbly turbulence, the visor operates easily and stays clear (so far)
I can't think of anything I dislike about this lid, although I have yet to try and fit an intercom into it. I done about 250 miles since I bought it a couple of weeks ago and so far it's all good.
The service at the MK store is amazing every time I go in there, (if only all retail outlets could be as friendly and efficient). A great crash helmet, although hopefully none of us will have to ever test its credentials.

Cannot rate this helmet highly enough, very good quality. Comfortable, relatively quiet. The vents actually work unlike other helmets I've owned. And at the price it's on sale for, it's a bargain

Had a few rides in it now. Coming from a Bell Race. The fit is spot on snug with out being uncomfortable. 59cm head. Less wind noise marginal. Visor is clear and field of view is excellent. Strap release is nice. The fastener is not. Magnetic one on Bell is superior. Bought because I prefer a d-ring. That said it glides thorough at 70 a lot better, less buffeting. Ventilation is good. Miss having a mouth vent as I find if does steam up quick relying on the pin lock or actual movement to clear! Visor has a multitude of opening/hold. Find the button release in gloves abit to small. For £289 it is superb. You can't go wrong with this one.
