Helmet review: Shoei XR1000

Shoei XR1000 (superseded by the XR1100, from £329.99)Miles covered/time: 4500/4 years (didn’t ride for 2 of these years) What’s good: This is the second Shoei that I’ve owned and, as with the first, it suits my head shape and fits well.

Brilliant XR1000 0 XR1100

Wouldn't wear anything else. Super comfy, fits brilliantly. The XR1100 is actually lighter than the X12 race version. Quality quality quality. Have worn shoei for I think its more than 20 years now. Shoei used to be way expensive but their prices have come down heaps due to competion.

I love my XR1000, the visor mechanism is so simple. I also have an Arai RX7GP and the visor mechanism is so dodgy I dare not remove the tinted visor so I use my Shoei when I need a clear visor. The Arai interior materials seem a little nicer than Shoei but I doubt I'd buy an Arai again, too noisy and poor visor system.

You'll not regret buying a Shoei.

On my 2nd XR1000 Camino after the first stroked the Queen's highway and did a superb job of keeping the jellied eel of a brain of mine in between my ears. The helmet I had before was a white Arai RX7 Corsair, nice but noisy but not as comfy as the Shoei...
