I have owned 2 other Shoei 3/4 helmets over the years. Shoei J-Cruise Helmet is the first with a face sheild. The face shield has worked great. Riding with the face shield down the ventilation is good and wind noise is minimal. Not ever having a face shield before, I raise it all the way when stopped on summer days, and when riding slow, I will raise it a little to get more air movement. I wear glasses and the sun shield works great. I really like that I can make all these adjustment with my left hand. Riding in the rain or at Interstate Highway speeds (80 mph) is what sold me on this helmet. The fit, like my other Shoei helmets, is great, comfortable all day. As mentioned above, I am impressed with the face shield features. I have had some of the other features in previous Shoei helmets. The Shoei J-Cruise Helmet is well worth the price due to the quality and features.

This is my 6th Shoei in 30 years and 240,000 miles of riding. Unfortunately this one is a lemon in that the visor will not stay cracked open. On either of the first two settings the visor will snap shut whenever I'm above 50 MPH and this is behind a wind-diverting screen on my BMW R1150R. Since it's not pleasant riding in hot weather without some airflow and it's impossible in the winter to ride without ventilation to keep breath from fogging at stops, I'm beginning to think this will be my last Shoei.

I was very excited about this helmet and I bought it assuming it was the same Shoei workmanship I have relied on for over well two decades. Despite having amazing features -- pull-down sun visor, redesigned vents and flow, redesigned internal padding, etc. -- I was extremely disappointed to discover that it has only a DOT safety certification. I was assuming it would have at least the Snell safety certification that the RF helmets have had going back to at least the early 1990s, but it does not. I'm sorry, but my brain is too valuable to risk in exchange for awesome style features. I returned the helmet, and I will now be looking for another helmet that provides the safety features my brain deserves. I hope that Shoei can increase the safety certification for this new helmet -- I'm not even looking for a SHARP certification, as a Snell would be good enough for me.

This helmet is amazing, so much airflow! Also, high speeds barely affect you. My neck used to hurt after some of my rides because the wind would push the helmet so hard and my neck was working so hard to keep it forward. This helmet glides through the air like it's nothing! It's really amazing, great product 10/10 would buy 1000 times over.

They sent the wrong model, I cannot use it.

This is a very nice helmet. My helmet size varies with the manufacturer. Initially, I ordered an XL and found that it was too tight. So, I returned it and purchased a 2XL. It's a much better fit, but a little too "airy" in the cheek pads. It would have been nice to be able to choose the cheek pad thickness that you wanted when you ordered the helmet. In the owners manual that came with the helmet, it does state that other thicknesses are available. I'll likely order the thicker cheek pad. Overall, a high quality helmet with good ventilation.
