The Shoei helmet received mixed reviews from customers. Many praised its lightweight design, comfort, and excellent ventilation.

Some customers had issues with the visor system, finding it difficult to secure partially open. Several noted it being tighter than expected, especially around the cheek pads. Overall, the helmet was recommended for its quality, though a few felt it could be improved for specific riding positions or slightly adjusted for a better visor mechanism.

After just getting back on a bike for the first time in 12 years, I decided to visit the Preston store to try before I buy.
I'd done a few google searches beforehand and really liked the look of the Shoei NXR2.
I was stuck between the medium and large. Eventually going with the medium after some excellent advice from a staff member in store.
The fitting of the supplied pinlock visor was easy after watching SBS YouTube video.
I used the helmet for the first time yesterday on my CBT. I had the helmet on and off from 9am until 3pm.
A very nice comfortable lightweight helmet which seems to disappear on the bike.
The visor system was easy to use on the fly with summer gloves.
Remember to try before you buy to get that fit right.
It might just save your life...
Comfy and quiet

Very comfortable lid, first shoei I've bought. Took a bit of getting used to how quiet it is. Small made, usually a m/l but had to go to xl in this. Excellent service as usual from sportsbikeshop. First class
Usual Shoei Excellence

Bought to replace my ancient Shoei GT Air. I have tried the NXR 2 in store many times but didn't like the visor release. Finally bit the bullet and bought one...within five minutes, I had worked it out works perfectly. My fifth Shoei...perfect.
Great, but with flaws

Overall a great helmet, light and with reduced noise from previous versions. Cheek pads really cup your jaw. On the flip side, it's horrendous to get your headset fitted. The clips on the cheek pad are really difficult to connect and constantly pop out when getting the helmet on and off which cause the speakers to pop out.

I moved from HJC to Shoei after a long time, previously was using HJC RPHA10 plus and the moved to HJC RPHA 11 pro and now finally migrated myself to Shoei NXR 2, love it so far. little challenges to mount my Cardo Slim, rest I am loving it, and Sportsbikeshop gave it to me in amazing price, love there service. Definitely coming back here to shop more
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.

Excellent product

Fits a bit small compared to other brands in 'small'
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.
Full circle

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).
Great helmet!

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.
