Shoei NXR 2 - Nocturne
The Shoei NXR 2 Nocturne is a premium sports-touring full-face, certified to the latest ECE 22-06 safety standards.
Developed within Shoei's state-of-the-art wind tunnel test facility, the NXR 2 is designed to be as light, compact and protective as possible whilst adhering to the new ECE22/06 certification for motorcycle helmets. To do this, the NXR 2 utilises their proprietary AIM technology (advanced integrated matrix) which consists of a blend of organic and multi-composite fibres alongside a multi-density EPS lining to achieve outstanding shock absorption and a weight of just 1390 grams.
The ventilation system has been optimised and enlarged from the previous NXR, and features new multiple vent and extraction points, including six inlets on the brow and chin, and four outlets at the rear, for guaranteed fresh airflow throughout. A new CWR-F2 visor has also been added, creating a greater peripheral vision, improved demisting and significantly reduced wind noise thanks to the improved visor seal. The visor's locking mechanism has been repositioned centrally to reduce repetitive stress and increase its lifespan.
The EQRS security system allows paramedics to easily remove the lid in the event of an emergency. The advanced comfort interior boasts moisture-wicking properties for all-ride comfort and is ready-prepared to accommodate an intercom system seamlessly in the lining. The helmet's four different shell sizes (2XS-S/M/L/XL-2XL) ensure a more custom fit than most motorcycle helmets and is secured with a D-ring retention strap.

Circumference Measurement: Wrap a measuring tape around your head starting from the centre of your forehead. Measure about an inch above your eyebrows and hold tape comfortably snug. Take the length and complete again for good measure. Use the largest of the two readings.

Shoei was founded in japan in 1958 and have been producing motorcycle helmets since. At the beginning the helmets produced were only for the racing sector, but then founder Eitaro Kamata made the decision to expand their horizons and in 1960 their factory in Tokyo began producing helmets which met the Japanese industrial standards allowing everyday riders to wear their helmets.
Shoei's GRV helmet was the first helmet to use carbon fibre and Kevlar. Shoei also created the first coverless shield system and the Dual Liner Ventilation system. The flagship X-Spirit was introduced in 2003 and was promoted by Shoei as the most advanced helmet in the world, winning MCN's Product of the Year 2003 award in the clothing category. It was followed by further development and the introduction of the RF-1000 (sold as the XR-1000 in Europe) in 2004, and the later introduction of the X-Eleven. These helmets paved the way for the current RF-1100 and X-Twelve models. In September 2010 the QWEST was released, the successor of the RAID II, a top of the line sport touring helmet.
The launch of the Neotec in 2012 was another milestone for Shoei - the addition of a built in sun visor , built into a second shell layer to remove the weakness inherent in adding an internal sun visor.
Shoei sponsors MotoGP riders such as Marc Marquez and Bradley Smith, and being adopted by Honda Motor Co, Shoei has gained respect from motorcycle industries. Although a very successful brand, Shoei still remains a relatively small with under 500 workers worldwide. The helmets are only produced in Japan, yet they are distributed and sold globally.
In 2013, Shoei introduced a 5 year warranty against material and manufacturing defects - all Shoei helmets sold by Infinity Motorcycles are supplied through the official channels and we're Shoei Assured dealers, so our staff are trained in fitting, maintenance and servicing of Shoei helmets and we stock a range of Shoei accessories, spares and visors in all stores.
