Shoei J Cruise - Gloss White
Customer Product Reviews
Pricey but you get what you pay for.
I bought this helmet to replace my older HJC IS-33 which was itself a very good helmet and from a style point of view looks very similar to this Shoei model. The Shoei is a fantastic helmet, very well made, comfortable and quiet. I've recently started to wear glasses while riding and these fit very comfortably under the helmet. The visor has a nice tight fit when shut resulting in very little noise when wearing it. Even though this is an open face helmet it is much quieter than my full face LS2. This helmet is really excellent in every respect and the only reason I haven't given this the full 5* is the cost. At £389 (over £400 for a patterned one) this is a lot of money for an open face helmet, in fact more than some of Shoei's own full face models. I guess you get the quality you pay for but I have to ask myself...Is this helmet nearly four times better than my old HJC? No, obviously not. Both are quiet, comfortable helmets and the Shoei definitely has a more quality feel to it...but you definitely have to be prepared to pay for that and the Shoei name.
Top quality helmet
This helmet is just what I was after open face but with a full length visor for when traveling at higher speeds. The long visor is easy to operate and closes with a positive lock and doesn't lift when doing life saver check at speed. Drop down Internal dark visor is easy to use and smooth in operation. Helmet is reasonably quiet and the venting is effective and easy to use. Overall a well designed top quality helmet.
First time perfect fit, very comfortable
Really pleased with this helmet, I always paid less and I'm pleased to say with this one I stepped up to a higher quality and after a few rides out it seems to have been worth it. Very quiet, low wind and motorway traffic noise and extremely comfortable. Well recommended.
First 'proper' helmet and very pleased with the product. I have a large head and was worried about tightness - no problems, XL fits like a glove! Service from Sportsbikeshop has been fantastic and a return was dealt with very quickly and pain free.
Perfect fit and cool looks
This was ordered late for a motorcycle trip on a classic bike. It arrived promptly and in time for the trip, fitted perfectly (sized from an older helmet) and looked the part for the trip. The helmet is very well constructed, easy to adjust, is very comfortable to wear and easy to clean after a trip. All round excellence.
Smart solution to open face
Need open face helmet that accommodates my spec's, comfy, quiet well built...oozes quality...great service from Sportsbikeshop. Haven't tried it in rain...but I like this lid. Bought the size as per head measurement and the fit is great and just enough room for a balaclava. Thanks SBS.
Ever tried to fasten a Double D helmet strap with no feeling in your fingers? It's really not easy. And the same goes for all the zips, press studs and Velcro in a modern winter motorcycle jacket. With no feeling you have to look at everything and with this helmet it's so easy. Brilliant. The helmet strap clasp is the easiest that I have used and with the visor up you can see very clearly all the jacket fastenings. The sun visor is brilliant also. By far the best looking open face 'Sensible' helmet on the market. Quality is second to none.
Best open faced helmet out there
This is my second one....the first one got damaged after I had took a fall. I hadn't even noticed that my head hit the ground...the helmet did its job superbly. Very good fit and the internal sun visor is a great bonus. I had no hesitation in replacing my damaged helmet with exactly the same one!
Great for a modern classic bike
I prefer an open face helmet as I get a better field of vision than a full face one. I particularly like the long visor which prevents wind making your eyes water. I was between medium and large and chose large, it is just a little loose but very comfortable. I have just purchased a Tech Base Balaclava from Sportsbikeshop.co.uk to go underneath and it now fits very snugly. The inside padding does shrink quite a bit, my advice would be to leave all the visor stickers on and just wear it for a bit to make sure the size is right for you. Love wearing it on my new Bonneville1200.
