The NXR2 is a sports touring helmet that is certified to the latest ECE 22.06 regulations, and it’s currently available in variety of colours at a massive saving through Sportsbikeshop.

The shell is a lightweight multi-composite, with a multi density EPS (that’s the soft inner bit), emergency quick release cheek pads and traditional double-D ring strap fastener. The visor has a front locking mechanism to prevent accidental opening, and it ships with a Pinlock insert in the box.

If you want fancy something a little different, you can always make a deal with the devil and opt for the distinctive ‘Faust’ livery, but there are lots of other designs included in the discount so take your pick!

Shoei NXR2 review

MCN’s Head of Digital, Gareth Evans tested the Shoei NXR2 for 4000 miles and was hugely impressed, giving it a maximum 5 stars for quality. He said: “l think it’s a great look, somehow managing to tread the fine line between subtle and stylish, with an aerodynamic twist thanks to the spoiler.  

“But as well as the looks, it’s the aeros that make this among the quietest helmets l’ve worn when travelling at speed. It’s versatile in terms of venting too, which has been great for me because I’ve ridden in all manner of conditions, from frosty drizzle to 40-degree-plus heat.

“A CWR-F2 Pinlock keeps fogging at bay and once I’d learnt to use the vents properly this worked faultlessly. When you’re adjusting the vents or indeed operating the visor, you get a real sense of quality in terms of the solidity of the materials and the way they all work together. Inside the shell, the removable liners snap into place with poppers that feel very strong, unlike a lot of cheaper helmets I’ve tested.

 “There are a lot of sizing options, including five outer shell sizes and cheek pads in four thicknesses, which means it’s worth getting the helmet fitted properly at a shop rather than buying blind online The strap is secured using a double D-ring and, while l’ve tried other systems, nothing offers the same simplicity.

“Should the worst happen, there’s an Emergency Quick Release System that allows the lid to be removed. Sure, it’s not a cheap lid, but if this design is too expensive, there are simpler solid colours on offer starting at a hundred quid less And to top it all off, the Shoei comes with a five-year warranty for additional peace of mind. “
