Shoei J-Cruise II Glossy Black
Shoei J-Cruise II Glossy Black description
The outer shell of the new J-Cruise II is made from Shoei’s patented AIM multi fibre material. This material is built up from fibreglass and organic fibres and it is rock solid, but it remains compact. The outer shell comes in three different sizes, this ensures you will always be wearing the smallest possible helmet – which is a big advantage for the weight and the comfort of the helmet.
The Shoei J-Cruise 2 has a large thermoplastic shaped visor, thanks to this is has a lot more shape than a regular visor would have. At the bottom of the visor we can see a clever ‘double lip’ edge, this little edge ensures that the wind is guided to the sides of the helmet and it doesn’t roll under the visor. Many riders choose this helmet to ride all year round – in all conditions.
The visor may not have changed, but the base plates on the helmet have. It’s now possible to put the visor in a slight ventilation notch, a feature that was missing on the previous version of the J-Cruise II.
At the rear of the helmet we can see a large spoiler to up the game on aerodynamics, this seems to be inspired by the one on the successful Neotec II modular helmet. The new J-Cruise 2 also features the famous Shoei ‘ducktail’ diffuser. The ventilation system has also receive a vast update. The original J-Cruise only had 1 air intake on the top, but on the new version we are seeing 3 air intakes on the top. Thanks to this the helmet let’s in up to 30% more cool air than its predecessor.
Just like with the Neotec & GT-Air II, the J-Cruise has a specific preparation for the SRL1 & SRL2 communication systems by Sena. Both systems fit seamlessly into this helmet, thanks to this you will not be disturbing the flow of the design or the aerodynamics. The sun visor is 5mm longer than its predecessor and it has the characteristics of a good pair of sunglasses.
Of course the Shoei J-Cruise II can be custom fitted thanks to the patented ‘Shoei Personal Fitting System’. This helmet is currently not out yet, we expect to receive it early 2020.
