Shoei J-Cruise Helmet 4.7 5 41 41
Very comfortable round-oval helmet fit. This helmet was bought to replace the same model which was damaged in a bad crash. The damaged helmet protected my face and head just like it was supposed to. Shoei helmets may cost more, but they are worth every penny, IMHO. April 15, 2014
You should get one Very comfortable. If you want to put headset you should cut from the foam helmt February 18, 2014
Excellent product This is an excellent helmet. I owned another brand and I love the fit, feel,quite, and aerodynamic quality of this helmet when riding at freeway speeds without a windshield. Easy on the head, when looking to change lanes at 65mph. This was a significant difference from my other helmet. I highly recommend the SHOEI J Cruise February 10, 2014
This is a very nice helmet. I purchased this helmet to reduce noise, and it does reduce allot of wind noise. The helmet fits perfectly, and is very comfortable. The ventilation system is very effective. The clear front screen is nice and detents shut. The built-in sun visor is nice but could drop down lower, and it would be nice if it were polarized, but is very handy. I wear glasses, so I was concerned about putting on a helmet with them and had no problems, although there is a learning curve. Bottom line, this is a very good product, well made, thoughtfully engineered and nicely finished. December 17, 2013
Not suitable for me; made a bad purchase. My mistake your gain, when I bought this, if you have HD equipment. Does not fit Harley speakers (no indication of this given by Shoei). Optional smoke/silver face shields are *not* available. (No indication given of this by Shoei). Shoei Customer Support was dismissive, didn't care. I **WILL NOT** buy a Shoei again. Harley has a similar helmet for 1/3 of the price!!! (which will fit HD speakers and has a smoke face shield, is DOT, etc). Revzilla was fine, no problems with them, at all. November 26, 2013
Great helmet - sizing is unique compared to other Shoei helmets 1200GSA, 90% slab A few things to consider with the J-Cruise. Size/fit: different from the RF-1000/1200. Large has been a perfect fit for me but a LG J-Cruise was unbearable. Pressure points at the frontal and high temples. This was not going to go away with a 10% break-in. I had to go with an XL and of-course, its a bit loose; not floppy or dangerous, but not track-helmet snug. I'd suggest measuring and if you are in the gray zone, go with the next size up. That said, Revzilla is awesome to work with if you need to return things. Features: As good as it gets save for a bluetooth system like N-Com. The optics on the shield and visor are stellar. Even with the pinlock insert I can look through all 3 layers and not have much distortion. Ventilation is good. Comfort of the liner and chin strap are top-notch. Easy to install a com-system. The sun visor is cable operated and very smooth. Balance: Not as balanced on the head as most Ar**s but pretty good. Its hard to judge with a slightly larger fit than I need so I'll leave this for others. COG feels a touch high. Finish: Brilliant paint, good plastics on the vent construction, double rubber bead for the visor seal, no imperfections that I could find. Vent movement is solid. Shield snaps into place in the lower left corner with a pin/hole latch. Top notch. Use: Compared to Arai removing/replacing a Shoei shield is a snap. Autocom earphones fit well into the recesses WITH 1/4" pad insert from Autocom. Otherwise they are likely to be too far from your ears. Not sure what speakers Shoei had in mind with these cut-out recesses. And detents...Shoei come on!!! All the way up or all the way down? Overall: Great helmet. Just ordered one for my girlfriend tonight. Get the size right and most people will love this helmet. And for the record...look at the data (PubMed or Goggle Scholar) - open face vs full-face has very little effect on craniofacial injury or severity of TBI. If this helmet fits you properly, protection should be on par with most full-face helmets, unless you slide on your face with the shield open. Just saying... November 10, 2013
Overall pretty good Helmet feels a bit tight. I'm hoping with use the padding will compress a bit to make it more comfortable. October 21, 2013
has everything you need. Great helmet would recommend to anyone. Priced right. October 14, 2013

David B. W: Understand Shoei is a premium product and want a decent quality and quiet helmet. Apr 18, 2014
A R: I use Shoei I like their stuff also having a built in sun shield is a great idea. Mar 31, 2014
Kathi W: I love this helmet. I was out east over Thanksgiving, tried it on in the store. Since I flew out for a visit I decided to wait and look a bit more. Nothing I looked at measures up. Might be expensive, but this is protection for my head.... not only is it the best protection, best fitting and Revzilla had the best price. Just can't wait to start riding with my new helmet. Mar 28, 2014
Ernesto G: Because is a premium helmet top of the line after reading a lot good reviews and research . I wanted an open face for view and comfort for a 8 hours ride cruising and sightseeing . I chose brilliant yellow color so drivers can see me on road. I wear bright neon yellow jacket also for safety to be see :-) Mar 22, 2014
Timothy H: Im tired of buying & wearing cheap is-fitting helmets. Mar 17, 2014
HERCULANO C: Its the most comfortable open face I've ever used specially on a long ride. The ventilation is very good as well. Mar 6, 2014
Tom S: Safety Feb 2, 2014
Pål E: Well known manufacturer With good reputations, and a helmet between a full open helmet and a full 3/4 helmet witch suits me perfect.
It also suits my motorcycle perfect, a Harley Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Limited.
Jan 25, 2014
Herbert H: Had the last version- very nice, so time for an upgrade - very nice new color as well- anthracite! Dec 17, 2013
Michael S: Have a Shoei full face helmet and am very satisfied with it. When looking for a 3/4 helmet, I naturally preferred a Shoei and it has the quality and features I was looking for. Nov 4, 2013
Dudley C: style and features, wanted the flip down tinted sun visor Nov 1, 2013
Brian B: My wife does not like the confinement of a full face helmet and this one provides great 3/4 protection and a sun visor to boot. She loves the helmet. Oct 18, 2013
Andrew K: I needed a new helmet as both of mine are over ten years old. The old Arai Corsair Nicky Hayden replica doesn't look right anymore. I'm older now so a low key grey helmet will suit me just fine. My old motocross helmet is a Shoei and I hope the new lid fits similarly. Oct 7, 2013
David G: Got a Shoei head Oct 2, 2013
Keith J: Sizing, full face protection for warmer weather. Shoei quality! Oct 2, 2013

bruce w: Quality Aug 30, 2013
A shopper asked: In the video Anthony mentions he likes another open face better but does not mention the brand. Can you tell me which helmet he is referring to? Would like to have his opinion before I decide. Thanks. Feb 21, 2014

William H: Im not sure if I'm the one you want to reach . But the J Cruse helmet is the best helmet I've ever own. Fits well as all Shoei helmets do, the vent system is outstanding but you can only expect so much there. But much better air flow than any other I have tried. Im a Harley rider so the high cut up the back of the helmet is not something I'm crazy about. But by no means would trade it for another for that design. It is very quite and comfortable to wear. You can fill a little cold Air in the winter time but very little. I ride 20-25 thousand miles a year so this isn't a review after two trips around the block. For what it worth I have about dozen helmets on the shelve in my garage. I think its money well spent, and your dealing with a quality Company so you get it and it doesn't fit they will exchange it. I wear an extra large in all Shoei Helmets , the same in the J Cruise and it fits great. I probably road about 1800 mile with it since purchase . it mid last last last year. Hope this helps you. Great Helmet by a great Company and sold by a great Company! Feb 21, 2014

Ahmed Medhat E: Hi
i'm sorry for my belated reply, it was me at work for too long!
Anthony is a great reviewer and i think in his J-Cruise detailed video he meant by the better helmet that he likes (because i think he likes that brand more in general) is the Arai CT-Z open face helmet i quote "the most technically advanced, best venting and most protective helmet that we've seen anybody do so far..... pause and digest that" and i know that video was 1 year before the j cruise video came out but i just think he loves the Arai CT-Z better.
i hope i've helped you and have a good day!

Janet S: Sorry. I am not sure which helmet he was referring to. I will say this. I fit into both the small and medium helmets. Against their advice, I purchased the larger one. Even at that, after wearing this helmet several hours, I found my cheeks hurt. The padding was just too tight. I had to order smaller pad which were very expensive. I only use this helmet in the frigid weather. It does a nice job blocking the wind but not the most comfortable.

Good luck with your purchase.

alexander d: Thats a good question and one I wouldnt be able to answer. Your best bet is to call Revzilla and ask them specifically. Im just a customer who wrote a review. That being said, I have really come to love this helmet and its the first one I reach for now. I find it to be stuffy with a small field of vision when I put on one of my full face helmets again.

A shopper asked: Where does this helmet sit on the shape scale of 1 (narrow) to 5 (round)? May 1, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Shoei J-Cruise helmet has an intermediate oval internal shape that is slightly round. If I had to put it on a scale of 1 (narrow) to 5 (round), intermediate oval would be a 3 and the J-Cruise would be slightly less than a 4. May 8, 2013

Don W: My head is 23.5" and I'd say long oval to long narrow (if there is such a thing). J-Cruise Large is too tight across the forehead, although fits well otherwise, whereas the Bell Mag 9 Sena Large fits me well. Dec 7, 2013
