Video Reviews
Hey this is Reuben with Competition Accessories welcome to our review of the all new Shoei J-Cruise helmet. This is the first open face helmet from Shoei that we've seen that incorporates an internal drop down sun visor. Now they've brought this feature over from their Shoei Neotec which is the modular helmet it got released last year very popular helmet and it has definitely impressed a lot of people with its comfort and all the features and I'm sure the J-Cruise will be no exception to that . So if your looking for an open faced helmet that just gives you a little bit more of an open feel this is definitely a great option. With Shoei you know your going to get a very top notch well built helmet , and the first thing i will mention is this internal sun-visor. I believe that Shoei is the only manufacture that has an ANSI Certification for their internal visor , and that's the American National Standards Institute and they rate things like safety glasses and non prescription eye wear. They actually have their non prescription rating for this internal visor and that means its guaranteed to be shudder proof , its anti scratch anti fog and its optically correct . A lot of the less expensive helmets a lot of times you drop down that visor and there's a little bit of distortion and it might just give you a head ache over a long period of time and Shoei is not this is not the case with Shoei. Its a very clear internal visor that does have anti fog coating on it . The other thing that's really unique about the way that Shoei has designed their internal visor system is rather on compromising on the thickness of the internal liner which is the EPS foam that actually protects your head in a crash obviously that has to have somewhere to go to retract up into the helmet . So a lot of other brands you know wonder what their doing on the inside making space for that shield to go. What Shoei does is they actually build the front of the shield up further and if i turn the helmet sideways you can actually see that ridge there they actually raised this up to allow for space for that internal visor to have somewhere to go without compromising on the thickness of the liner . While were talking about the shell this does have a nice design to it rather then the typical ball shape that you see with a lot of open faced helmets it actually has a bit of an aerodynamic property a very subtle rear spoiler system to it and its Shoeis AIM shell which stands for Advanced Integrated Matrix its a combination of Kevlar, fiber glass and carbon fiber very very rigid which is especially important for an open faced helmet because you don't have that jaw piece that goes across the front to kind of help hold everything kind of rigid . This helmet if you squeeze on the sides its actually very rigid material which helps disperse impact . This shells design is if you go down its actually going to disperse impact over the largest area possible so that internal foam can have an easier time managing that impact over a broader area. Talking about the ventilation system real quick they do have an intake scoop at the top you can operate that with gloves on very easily , just slide this back it has two positions half way open and fully open. Its up at the top of the helmet to harvest as much air as possible , now your heads up nice and high if you have a wind screen on your bike that's going to be the best place to put a vent to pull air down inside the helmet and then at the back you have two exhaust vents and if you slide those back and as you ride a lot of people don't realize an area of low pressure is created right behind the helmet and that's actually going to help pull the warm air right out the back vents and actually also at the base of the helmet here around the neck roll air can escape here as well. And that's a really effective way of keeping your head cool as you ride. The face shield on this helmet is also something else i wanted to talk about, There are a couple of things that are really neat about it.Well first of all its pin lock ready shield, if you ever had an issue with fogging there's an optional insert you can buy, we actually have a separate video on the pin lock system if your interested on how that works. But essentially its a internal shield that you install on the inside of your outer face shield and it creates a duel pane effect where there's a little bead of air in between the outer shield and the inner shield basically insulating your breath from the outside air which really does a great job at preventing fog especially in cold weather when it can be a real problem. They've made this eye port really nice and wide face shield is also a little bit taller . When you get a good look at the base of the shield here you'll see there's a little lip on the bottom of it . And what Shoei has done is designed that in their wind tunnel to push the air away from your chest and let it go around your head rather then swirling up and creating a lot of turbulence in front of your face creating your eyes to water things like that . Another person pointed out when riding with this shield that it worked really well in the rain prevented the wind and water from whipping up under the shield and getting water on the inside, it helps to direct air around and the water around the side . Talking about the face shield i did want to talk about the latch that holds this shield down tight is here on the left side , so if you get this helmet your going to want to make sure you close and open this shield with your left hand and you can kind of pull the shield away from the shell itself and it makes it easy to lift up if you do it with this hand you'll see its stuck pretty tightly it holds on pretty good. If you use your left hand though it pops open real nice and easy no detentes really throughout the range coming out of a fluid motion like i said it locks down nice and tight you can kind of set it where it needs to be and there is a nice detente at the top at the very top of the opening . Another thing to point out is you have a duel bead lip on the rubber gasket and that goes across the top so you can take a look at that rubber seal. I know a lot of people have a lot of problems with other helmets where water if its raining run down the inside of your shield , unwanted air can cause a lot of noise if its able to get in between the shell of the helmet and the shield itself Shoei does a great job with their duel lip system the gasket there and you'll see that lines up right there with that little ridge on the shield itself and that actually seals up really tight when you close the shield all the way. To remove the shield is very simple you can swap these out for different tints if you want to obviously you don't have to do that often because you have an internal visor which makes it really convenient but if you did want to remove the shield, you just simply move forward and that's going to allow that to pop right off and then to reinstall just line up this tab here and give it a press and its going to click right into place and this is a self adjusting base plate and you may notice there are some springs there and those actually pull the shield down tight against the gasket so that when you close that all the way you'll see those springs push the shield back so that it gets a really good seal around there taking a look at the inside before we pull it apart and we have a scale over here I'm curious on how much this thing weighs 3.45 pounds and this is a size large and that will give you an idea of the weight. Taking a look at the inside they use whats called their 3D max dry liner , now this is a moisture wicking liner anti bacterial and its obviously moisture wicking so its going to manage the moisture really well and it is a fully removable interior . For the cheek pads you can pull those out three snaps and a little plastic tab on the side and you'll see its a nice sculpted contoured cheek pad and that's going to cradle your face and not create any pressure points or causing you to bite your cheeks or anything like that , and the cheek pads are interchangeable to different sizes so if you have a fuller face if if you need a little bit less of a cheek pad if you need a little bit more room in the cheek pad area you could always take these out and purchase some thinner cheek pads to give you some more room conversely if you have a thinner face and need more space taken up you can always go thicker as well. To remove the crown liner its just a few snaps at the back and pull that right out so if you ever need to wash the helmet up or anything like that to freshen it up you can easily pull the inside out. One of the things i want to point out is Shoeis are known to be a little bit more expensive then other brands and that's because of the research they do for comfort and fit and you'll notice they use actually different density's of foam on the top and throughout the front of the helmet where people tend to get pressure points with softer foam , if you take a look here they actually use different layers of foam on the top and on the sides different densities so your not getting any pressure points but your head is being totally cradled and very comfortable , you'll also notice its a 3D opening with mesh lining throughout so so what that does though is it allows all that air flow to come through the front of the helmet and in the top vents and rear vents it allows air to flow completely throughout the top of the helmet. If you take a look at the inside of the helmet they actually have these air channels and you can see the holes there you can see the openings for the liner and that is designed for air to come in and have somewhere to go it goes all the way out the back here or like i said it can go down and out the back of the neck roll there and they use a multi piece EPS liner so this is not actually one single piece of foam they combined multiple pieces of foam they can create air channels within the foam so that the ventilation is actually really really effective. And another thing that is coming up more and more lately is communications systems a lot of people are enjoying the ability to connect to your phone make phone calls listening to music or communicating with a passenger or another rider and that's definitely a great option with the J-Cruise. And they've done something really innovative they have speaker pockets built in so that you have somewhere to install speakers but if your not going to use your communications system what Shoei found is that those speaker pockets can actually amplify noise and it lets just a little bit of air swirl around right next to your ear which obviously adds to the noise factor . What they did is they included a sound dampening foam which goes right over the speaker pocket and if you are going to install a speaker system your just going to remove that and set it to the side and install your speaker in this nice opening here. I thought that was a really innovative way to cut down on wind noise that they've done on the J-Cruise . So as far as fit goes it fits just like all the other Shoeis that I've found that I've tried on its about an intermediate oval head shape very very comfortable to wear it cradles your head very well and if your familiar with your size in Shoei helmets its going to be very spot on and accurate compared to other Shoeis out there we do have a size chart if you need to measure your head if you want to do that, we have a video to show you how to measure your head for a motorcycle helmet so check that out as well and don't forget here at Competition Accessories you can earn up to 5% Comp-A cash back to use toward future purchases.

    Shoei Pinlock Shield - Conedodger   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Quality and fit of OEM, because it is OEM.
    Cons: Pricey

    Combined with the clear insert, this is possibly the best accessorysafety item I have purchased in years No matter how hard I try, I can't fog my shield, even on 30 degree mornings. Now I have a new standard shield that I'll never use. Pinlock shield should be standard equipment for Shoei.

    Worth the hight price - ddog   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Seal to Shoe Helmet RF-100 all Shoei helmets I'd imagine though
    Cons: high price

    I have had 41 years of all types helmets banging face-shield-clatter on helmets and this is the best I've ever experienced. It was hard not choosing a Chinese shield at a fourth of the price, but I'm sure, even with a Shoe RF-1100, it would clatter loudly huh what did you say I saved so much at Competition Accessories on th RF-1100 for 250 shipped, that it paid for my Shoei Chrome face shield for 99 free ship combined with RF-1100 helmet. Thanks Competition Accessories for letting me enjoy luxury helmet and accessories after 41 years I will always check you guys first from now on.

    Awesome - Larry G.   OR Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: No Fogging up, No Fogging up, Easy to put together
    Cons: None

    The pinlock is the only way to go. I live in oregon it rains alot and in the morning its cold, that all equates to a fogged up visor but not with this system.

    Tried one, now I'm hooked - Dutch1957   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Works like stated
    Cons: IN the summer heat, after 18 months of use the liner seal became unbonded

    THis set-up does indeed work in cold humid air conditions. It does take about 5 to 10 mins for the air barrier entrapped to become effective. Until that time, it does still fog abit.

    Great Shield - Nocman2   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: The Chrome looks great, adds sun protection
    Cons: COST

    The chrome shield looks great on my black helmet. I've had on for a couple of rides now and it seems easy to clean. I haven't noticed any scratches, so I can't comment on that. It also fit like a glove..

    Strength of shield - Mark Ezra   MO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Easy to fit
    Cons: Price

    This shield has good optical properties and fits the Shoei RF-1200 well. I have performed laboratory impact testing of this shield equivalent to a rock hitting the shield at 60 MPH and the shield provided full protection to face and eyes. The shield did not break when hit during testing.

    Shoei CWR-1 Shield - SusanDS   IN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Protection and better visibility when riding in bright sunlight
    Cons: Still have to carry 2 shields to have a clear shield and to have a sunglass shield.

    This was bought as a gift to go with the Schoe RF-1200 helmet bought in December 2013. Between us, this is our 4th Schoei helmet, so the shield is as was expected from our prior experience. I was actually trying to find just the pinlock lens in gray tinting, to eliminate having to carry a 2nd shield when we travel. But, this will work well until those lenses are available. We are anxiously waiting to see if Schoei will actually release a transition shield, thus eliminating any tinted lenses.

    Pinlock anti-fog inserts - Goatboy   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: They really, really do work.
    Cons: Odd reflections because of the double glazing.

    The difference is, I was told, Unlike other anti-fog gimmicks, this one really works.And it does. I couldn't get my shield to fog even riding through damp sleet and breathing heavily.The instructions warn not to use Pinlock inserts at night because of the reflections of lights that may interfere with rider's vision. Certainly the reflections are there. I choose to use the Pinlock inserts anyway, because a fog-free view is in my opinion a greater benefit that the disadvantage of reflections that you get used to and learn to ignore.Make sure your shield has the mounting pins.

    Once the shield is temp balance. After in warm garage, then to cold outside air it will fog for a short time. Then fog free.

    Is what it is - Matt   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great quality as expected
    Cons: Should include a sleeve

    I got the darker gray, which is a daylight only color. Using it when the sun setting is a bad idea as it is deceptively dark. Pops on and off easily. For the price though I would have liked to see it come with a cheap microfiber sleeve.

    Shoei Quality - rpalick   MN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Very Clear with Excellent Interchangability
    Cons: None

    If you are like me, the clear face shield may be good at night but in the Texas sun, you definitely are going to need a tinted or smoke colored face shield. The Dark Smoke shield from Shoei was easy to install based upon their easy interchange system. This helmet and system is top notch with minimal noise and gives you a good seal. If your considering an alternate face shield you won't go wrong with this. At 45.00 the price was acceptable as far as I am concerned.

    Dark smoke shield - Ryan   CO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Everything
    Cons: None

    I bought the dark smoke as an extra shield to the RF1100 that comes with a clear shield. It works great, easy to attachremove, not too dark that you can't see at night but enough that you can ride into the sun and actually see where you're going. I've cleaned bugs off by running it under water and wiping it off with a no-scratch cloth.

    CX-1V Dark Smoke Visor - Shadowboxer   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Reduces glare, cooler, seems fairly durable
    Cons: [None]

    Bought the dark smoke visor to avoid having to wear my prescription sunglasses under the clear visor on sunny days. Love it. Also seems a little cooler inside.

    nice quality - Kawasaki owner   OH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: High quality
    Cons: none

    Ordered a mellow smoke face shield. Works well during the daytime and evenings. I've left this shield on the helmet and didn't need to switch back to the clear screen at all. Works well even during the morning hours.

    Worth the - Stacy G   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Perfect tint Easy to Install
    Cons: Price

    This shield works exactly as advertised. It is easy to install and have had no issue openingclosing it. The tint is the perfect amount for a sunny day but not too much for night either. I don't like carrying extra shields with me when I ride so this one works well no matter the time of the day. At night, it can be a little dark on rural roads so I simply angle my helmet up a little bit which allows me to see thru the less tinted area of the shield. Only drawback is the price for this shield. This is the price I expect to pay for a shield with reflective coatings. It works and I would recommend to others. Guess that's all that really matters.

    X-12 Helmet & Shields - Pakleo   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Helmet Fit and quality. Lenses Easily exchanged. Virtually no distortion. Quality construction.
    Cons: Helmet Difficult, if not impossible, to fit comm set. Lenses None.

    I have the Shoei X-12 Glory 2 Size XL with clear and Spectra Silver lenses. I recommend this helmet as the very best for all applications, except when you need a comm set. I went to a communications specialist store and they were unable, even with on-the-phone support from Shoei, to fit a comm set that I could comfortably wear without cutting some liner foam, which of course they advised against. In all other aspects this helmet exceeds my very high expectations. Is it expensive Yes. My thought, If you have a 10 head you should wear a 10 helmet. The lenses will meet all your expectations. However, they are not adverised to be fog proff and they are not. And all the cheap fog sprays and wipes will not make them so. Solution I just ordered the fog proof shield and inserts from my favorite supplier, Competition Accessories. Shoei. You meet the most intelligent people wearing the brand.

    This review is for Shoei Pinlock Anti-Fog Shields for X-11, RF-1000, TZ-R, Multi-tec and more
    I am astounded by how fog proof these Pinlocks are. I live in Massachusetts and ride right into mid December every year. I used to spend all kinds of time with Fog-X and all that nonsense trying to keep the shield clear.

    The Pinlock has since solved all my problems. The only drawback is it does cut in on peripheral vision a tiny amount. Doesn't bother me personally, but it's there.

    Dark smoke is a perfect fit on RF-1100. Perfect for sunny days here in LA. Traffic here still sucks.

    My Nolan N102 came with a Pinlock lense included, but the shield is so difficult to take off that I didn't bother with it. When I had trouble with fogging in cold weather, I decided tp give it a try. It workd so good I ordered one for my Shoei RF1000. I would like to be able to get a high definition shield with pins as it would look better than amber lens on clear.

    Simply Amazing!  
    What a great product. I thought the RF-1000 was great with very little fogging, but as the weather got colder I noticed more fogging and when I added a face mask I had lots of fogging problems. The pinlock antifog set-up is truly no-fog. My only complaint is the shield only comes in clear....I think a smoke shield I could put a clear lens in would look a lot better than buying a smoke lens as pictured.

    No Fog - Bob M.   OH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: These work perfectly, no fogging issues.
    Cons: Hi-def would be nice, not offered for this one. Cost too much

    These work better than anything else I have ever tired. Have never had one fog up on me.

    Shoei CX-1V shield for Multitec - Goatboy   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good fit, and easy to fit and remove.
    Cons: Expensive. Need to specify Pinlock pins

    I ordered a spare face shield for my new Multitec, so that I'd have a clear one for night and a smoked one for sunny days.When ordering, make sure you order the correct type I missed that if you want to use Pinlock anti-fog inserts, you must specify a Pinlock-compatible shield. Neither the OEM shield nor the spare had the pins, so I can't use Pinlock inserts with these shields.
