Shoei NXR - Recounter TC5
Customer Product Reviews
This is the first Shoei helmet I have bought. I was very surprised with its size and weight. Unlike other helmets I've owned that feel bulky this is lighter, has better vision, there is less noise from wind and fits much better. It reminds me of the armour in the film Knights Tale! Thinner, smaller, lighter but stronger ! Although I won't be doing jousting any time soon ! Top product
Shoei NXR Intense
Purchased to replace a Shoei XR1100. As usual, great service from SportsBikeShop, well packaged and arrived when they said it would. First impressions are that the lid is nice & light, well built. Everything you'd expect from a Shoei. Fitting the chin curtain is really easy, however the breath guard was a bit more "involved". Shoei include a tube of Silicon Oil to lube the inner seal of the lid. Quick & easy. In comparison to the XR1100, the NXR's shell would appear to be a tad smaller in the same size (M), so a snug fit especially taking it off. Still a great lid, and looking forward to using it more.
I've been a shoei fan for quite some time now, my previous helmet to the NXR was the GT-Air. My concerns with the going to the NXR from the GT-Air were mainly wind noise levels and comfort, as these were things on the GT-Air that i already held in high regard. Both of these concerns were promptly put to rest after about a 25 min stint down my local motorway. Thoroughly impressed with the amount of air flow through the top of the helmet (this will be appreciated more in the summer i am sure!) and through the mouth vent. I wear glasses and for years i have had to rely on anti fog spray to keep them from misting up. Not anymore! The chin curtain does an excellent job of cutting down any noise/turbulence that gets thrown up from the front wheel too.
Quiet and Comfortable - Superb!
Either I have a Shoei shaped head, or Shoei makes excellent helmets. Changed to a sports bike from a tourer and the NeoTec - still an excellent helmet - was too noisy. The NXR is just as comfortable but a lot quieter. Great ventilation and good vision. Vents and pinlock ensure no fogging. Installing a Sena SMH-5 was easy, and Shoei range of interchangeable padding ensures the fit is perfect.
This is my second NXR as the previous one had just hit 5 years old and getting on for 20k miles. Really quiet, good ventilation, comfortable to wear all day and doesn't feel like you're going to break something when you remove the visor. I like the new designs which are actually a gloss finish which I don't think the default Shoei images show too well. An all round quality product Usual excellent service from Sportsbikeshop
S.B.S price matched this helmet for me so straight off the bat I was pleased. When the helmet arrived it was every bit the quality item I'd hoped it would be, and the inclusion of a pin lock in the box was the cherry on top of an already delicious cake. Fantastic service, fantastic product.
It's my very first Helmet and I was advised by experienced riders to go with a Shoei. I was not disappointed as it fits perfectly, very secure and has very good ventilation. Its very practical as the lining can be fully removed for cleaning. In addition I just love the look of this helmet - I'm very happy with my purchase
First full face but not the last
This is my first full face, I have had flip front in the past. Good: Very light. Great visibility. Pin Lock. Its a Shoei. Bad: Bit tight to get on and off but nice fit when its on (I do have biggish ears so that does not help) Do not like that the chin part does not travel lower (this is hangover from flip front I guess Other than that, all good, very happy with purchase.
