Shoei J Cruise Helmet

The Shoei J-Cruise is the Cadillac of open-face helmets. The classic ¾ design has been upgraded with features that make the J-Cruise a world class touring helmet. An internal drop-down sun visor, distortion-free Pinlock-ready face shield, adjustable ventilation system and 3D Max-Dry liner provide all day riding comfort. The face shield even has an integrated air dam that helps stabilize the helmet at speed and mitigate buffeting. If you like the freedom of a ¾ helmet, the Shoei J-Cruise is your ticket to ride.

Features:

  • Lightweight, AIM (Advanced Integrated Matrix) shell
  • Adjustable top and rear exhaust vents
  • Multi-Piece EPS liner allows for smooth passage of air, improving cooling performance
  • Easily removable shield secured by the shield stopper to prevent unexpected opening at speed
  • Five layer construction in cheek pad
  • 3D Max-Dry removable and washable interior liner
  • Padded chin strap

Sun Shield Visor System:

  • Built-in QSV-1 sun shield gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion
  • Visor meets ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyeglasses
  • Large and easy to reach switch activates the 3D injection-molded inner sun shield
  • Distortion-free shield blocks 99% of harmful UV rays
  • Forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, helping allow for the integrity of the helmet’s inner EPS liner to remain intact

CJ-2 Face Shield System:

  • QRSA allows tool-less shield removal and eliminates side covers for a flush, quiet fit
  • Wide, three dimensionally curved shield offers increased peripheral vision and optical clarity
  • Scratch-resistant coating
  • 99% protection from harmful UV A & B rays
  • One-piece injection-molded for consistent fit

Pat F on Jul 23, 2017
I have been using a full Shoei helmet for many years and really like the quality. When I moved to Florida it became a priority to get a helmet that is more open in the front for air circulation. After watching several videos and recommendations, I settled on the J-Cruise because it has the nice features.

I was looking to replace a full face helmet with something a little less restrictive that still provides protection from the elements. Have to say so far I feel I've made the right choice.

Bought this helmet for my wife last Christmas . She likes it and the shield works well for on the back of my GS.

I like the look. A friend has this helmet and loves it. Quiet. Lower face shield.
Jim B on Dec 15, 2016
I purchased this because my full face helmet was too hot for summer city riding This helmet has excellent air circulation to keep you cool. Do call revzilla's gear geek to check if it's the right shape for your head shape and size.
Lillian Q on Dec 7, 2016
Excellent build quality. Great reviews. Had a Shoei before and liked it. Wanted the HI VIZ color for safety.

Quality, comfort, sun visor. Have not had a Shoei, but tried this on eon and the fit was very good.
Gary B on Jul 30, 2016
Cooler in the summer, quieter than most full face helmets Iv'e owned. Very light too, easier on the neck.
Leny on Jul 30, 2016
Needed a quality open feel helmet. This delivers, the shield lives up to the hype, clear viewing very, very nice. Vents work well. With the pin-lock system, fogged shield is no longer an issue, not as clear, but no fog. This completed our rain gear set-up. Riding in rain is no longer an issue, longer road trips are planned and taken.

I like the fit and quality of Shoei helmets. I got this helmet for my dad on fathers day, I installed a Sena SMH5 in it, and he loves it! He's old school, but now we're talking when we ride and he's even making phone calls hahaha
Craig M on Jun 24, 2016
Quality helmet with pin lock capability.
Robert (Bob) M on Jun 2, 2016
I bought a c3 pro and was really impressed but the headset for my new Harley wouldn't fit it, so this appeared to be the best option. Seemed like a premium helmet but not loaded with things i wouldn't use. We'll see how it works.

Wife didnt want a full face or modular. Had great reviews. I have a Shoei Neotech and love their products
Robert T on May 22, 2016
I have a Shoei full face and a Shoei half helmet and love them both. I also have helmets from other manufacturers, while I like them, the quality of the Shoei is far better. So when I decided to buy another open face helmet I went with Shoei, just got it yesterday.

Vincent C on Sep 11, 2017
Very interested in the JCruise but i want to make sure that it will accommodate the headset speaker system that comes with my HD motorcycle. I have seen an number of conflicting comments about whether or not the Harley headset speakers will fit into the recesses in the JCruise helmet?
Roger C on Feb 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The answer to this question appears to be both yes and no. Did my Harley headset speakers fit into my JCruise helmet speaker recesses as provided, No. Did the speakers fit after an easy modification, Yes.

My Harley headset speakers came mounted in an approximate 2.25” OD plastic housing. This housing would not fit in the recesses of the helmet, but with a bit of care, the actual speaker (approximately .75” OD) were easily removed from their housings and then fit easily.

I’ve been using my HD headset with my JCruise helmet for approximately a year now and have had no issues. And by the way, love the helmet.
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.
A shopper on Feb 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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!
Anyone with a J-Cruise that has a Neotech as well? I wear a XL Neotech that fits like a glove, should I go with a XL J cruise?
Luis L on Feb 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Luis, I've got both the J-Cruise and Neotech in XL - fit is the same for both. The J-Cruise is, as you would expect, a bit noisier, but cooler in hot weather. Both are nice lids!
face shield colors available?
A shopper on Sep 30, 2017
how does the face shied perform in lite rain, heavy rain etc ? does the rain get on the inside of the shield ? Does it leak ? I have ear speakers and a mike, are the pockets for the speakers large enough that they do n ot press hard on your ears Thanx Chet
A shopper on Jun 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Works good in rain, no leaks. I also have speakers in mine doesn't press to hard against ears but I do have to reach in and adjust my ears after putting helmet on the tops seem to fold down. Over all my favorite 3/4 helmet!
I so want to purchase the glass black Shoei J-cruise as a perfect match to my bike, but before I choose white over black because of preconceived thoughts about heat related discomfort, has anyone experienced a noticeably different comfort level in terms of internal temperature of the J-cruise white vs. black helmets when out riding in the sun? Thanks
A shopper on Nov 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used to buy gloss black helmets to match my gloss black bike paint. They are noticeably hotter to wear comparing to matte black or gray/carbon. So the white one you are considering would be significantly more comfortable; temperature wise. I ride in So. Florida year round and I can't tolerate gloss black anymore. I stopped wearing the Gloss Black J-Cruise just for that reason after a hand full of ride. Matte black is better.
I wear eyeglasses and sunglasses - I'll be cruising on a HD Softail (not a racer or speed demon) - will this helmet work for me?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. the sun visor will not be a problem with glasses.
I'm curious just how 'quiet' this is? Via a recent trip using a 3/4 helmet, my ears were killing me at the end of the trip as I heard nothing but my pipes from the trip.
A shopper on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is a quiet helmet, but of course that is a personal opinion. I just completed an 8,500 mile trip up into Canada on my Honda Goldwing with TorqMaster pipes...not as loud as a Harley, but much louder than a stock Honda Goldwing. I had no hearing problems, and listed to music and CB every day. You might also consider wearing foam earplugs...which I did not do on this trip...but in my experience, they really reduce the noise level and make for a more relaxing ride. This is the second Shoei J-Cruise I have owned, also have the Neotec. You can pay more for a helmet, but I don't think you will find a better one.
Does the JCruise have the micro ratchet chin strap?
A shopper on Jan 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Apparently the Euro version has the ratchet and the North American version has the D rings
Even with a 3/4 helmet I like to ride with the face shield raised slightly. In hot humid weather it helps with air flow. I currently have an Arai CT-Z and unless the shield is fully closed it vibrates just enought to make it annoying. I ride a fully faired bike but the wind screen is short enough that I look over it, just the way I like it. I think the issue is the CT-Z shield is so long top to bottom that hard to keep it rigid.

I'm wondering how the new J-Cruise is in that regard. The shield looks to be shorter and with that compound lip at the bottom maybe it's more rigid? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Douglas F on Jun 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Douglas, you should find that you can open the face shield slightly to clear any fogging, or even completely open with no vibration at all. I have many thousands of miles on J-Cruise helmets and have never experienced vibration, even at highway speeds. I was out yesterday and it was so hot that I opened the shield all the way several times at speeds up to 60 mph. On the slab at 80 I'm going to have it down, mainly for protection and noise reduction. I also have a short sport windshield (Klockwerks Flare) and I can tell you vibration is not an issue with this helmet.
