Shoei J-O - Rat Grey
Customer Product Reviews
Helmet quality as you would expect. Fit good considering my head size is in between standard size. D ring good but prefer the magnetic clip Bell helmets compared to fiddley press button on Shoe and many others. Retractable visor just touches nose but not irritating and does s much better job than I expected of keeping wind out as only used full face befor this. Good retro looking lid with benefit of hidden visor.
Light, Comfy & Quiet
Bought this as my first ever helmet and I fell in love instantly. Very comfortable to wear and does a good job of reducing the noise of traffic and wind when you're on the bike. The visor comes down very smoothly with a satisfying "thunk" sound. The chin strap can be a little fiddly at first, but once you get used to it, it offers no problems. The matte finish is prone to fingerprints (it picks them up really easily), however, those easily disappear with a damp cloth. The clear visor offers lots of room to wear a pair of sunglasses underneath and with a few minor tweaks of the visor adjustment, I found the perfect position so that the visor didn't hit my nose. I would have preferred a dark visor, rather than a clear one, but that is just personal preference on the aesthetics.
5 stars all the way...
Managed to get the Shoei J-O helmet for an AMAZING price of only £229. It's extremely comfortable, lightweight and looks so good matched with the Bobber Black!!. Sportsbikeshop were quick to do a price match and the helmet was delivered the very next day. Which all results in a 5 star service.
Quality helmet. Possibly the most comfortable helmet I've ever had. Like another reviewer said, easy to put on and take off without having to take off my glasses/shades. I found another supplier that were doing it for less money and true to their word, Sportsbikeshop price matched it for me. Top service as per usual.
Easy to put on and take off
Very pleased with this helmet. Not too large looking. Easy to put on and take off and comfy too. I was between the L and XL size so went for smaller as recommended and perfect fit. I like the pull down visor which fits over shades. Great service from Sportsbikeshop as usual. Enjoying the recent warm weather with open face.
Great purchase - second Shoei helmet
This is an excellent retro helmet, really good and small profile which was great as bought for my wife. The ability to adjust the visor height is a real plus, saved having to buy glasses or goggles. Best price I've seen on Sportsbikeshop so no brainer!
Fit for purpose and great design
Appreciate a full face offers more protection, but I prefer the open face feel and unhindered visibility. And the Shoei does it perfectly. The slide down inner visor is easy to operate (and I wear glasses). The helmet is super comfortable. Definitely worth the money.
