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.
Quality Lid at Discount Price

I wanted black - but as I commute for a night-shift... Right?!

First try on, this is a very snug fit - but, after a week or so, the cushions loosen up a bit. According to size-chart, I am between S/M - going M was the best option.

Very comfortable, no pressure zones for my inter-oval head.

Buffeting only noticeable when turning head - otherwise, very quiet.

If I were to nit-pick, nose-guard (removable) will insta-mist your eye-wear (I did test with untreated lenses).

Overall, though, awesome skid-lid.

Perfect tight fit, light and silent

Excellent helmet. The lightest, best fitting and the most silent helmet I had to date. Had both a Shoei and an Arai helmet in the past, this one still managed to impress me. It's a snug fit, some people might not like it. I believe it's part of the design to hug the chin from under so it doesn't float in high winds. And did I mention it's so silent?
Excellent Helmet

Bought online, arrived a day early really good service, now worn this helmet, fits just as tight as my previous Shoei, it is quiet to ride in, air vents have been improved, also excellent value. Lovely looking, pinlock, on visor, all padding can be removed, superb product.

I have used Shoei helmets for a number of years and find them to be an excellent fit on my head, which is very important when choosing a helmet. Light and good quality.
Lovely helmet

Light and very comfortable. Only negative is that it is very difficult to fit an intercom but we managed.

Great service , great helmet, very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone and a great price
Great helmet

I went from an AGV K3 to this helmet and the difference is night and day. The Shoei is so much lighter and feels a quality built helmet, I went a size up from my normal as advised and it fits perfectly, no sun visor built in but I purchased the dark smoke visor

Shoei Quality

Excellent product and great service from SBS. The helmet is very light and although it's a snug fit, the Shoei quality is excellent. I suggest to buy one size up though. I have to get used to the fiddly double D strap but no problems here.
A snug fit and a very quiet helmet
04 April 2024 by Tom
What a great fitting helmet, true to size, fits and feels great and the noise levels are so much lower than my 'old' Glamster.
Hats off to Shoei and SBS for colour matching to my new bike too!
Love this lid!

Previously had an Arai which I loved but this helmet is the next level. So quite and super lightweight highly recommended.
Best helmet I have had
28 March 2024 by Ian
Shoei helmets are normally out of my price bracket but with the huge discount it was a no brainer and I have not been disappointed. The fit is tight but comfortable and it feels so light on. Side vision is very good through the visor and it is easy to both lock into place and release with a gloved hand. However the one caveat with the helmet is that the visor will not catch to leave a gap of a couple of mm, it is either open by around a couple of cm or closed. The materials and finish are top notch and the venting is excellent though I have not tried it in hot weather yet. The best thing for me though is the noise and turbulence. This is a very quiet helmet, certainly compared with others I have used and the air just seems to pass smoothly over it, no matter how you have your head turned, no buffeting at all. Overall very pleased and money well spent.
Good value

I have always had shoei helmets and this is good value. My only gripe is you need to fit the chin mesh otherwise its a bit windy inside, but this will come in handy in summer
