I did what many new motorcyclists do and purchased several helmets before finding the right fit. This design is easy on the eye and hosts many features to make it a very desirable purchase. A nice easy to fasten clip and a flip up/down visor works a harm, especially if you have a big beard like myself. The matt black colour is the cherry on the cake and looks fantastic. 10/10.
Having just got my first bike I wanted to get a helmet where I didn't have to splash the cash and looking at the reviews on this it seemed to be a good choice.
The helmet has a nice snug fit, though it is a bit on the large side. It is a bit on the heavy side also, but as it is my first helmet I can't dismiss that this could just be the norm. The flip front and the visor are a nice touch as it makes, however, I wish the visor had a wide a viewing angle.
Taking on the road is where it let me down a little. Going from 0-40 is okay, there is not much wind resistance so moving your head is fine. But once you start hitting 50+ you can see that the aero dynamics are not that great, turn your head at that speed and you can immediately feel the wind resistance, even when facing forward. Its a shame became apart from that its a decent helmet.
All in all, I would still recommend this, great helmet for those who don't want to splash the cash or haven't yet got the money for something a bit more upmarket. However, I would say that if you do have the money, consider spending a bit more and getting some with better aero dynamics, especially if you will be going at speeds.
Was hoping to replace existing L size, non-flip helmet, which is OK but a little tight. Hence thought XXL would be fine (and maybe require a thin balaclava)!
But I found the Shox XXL to be very tight across cheek section, making it almost impossible to get on! Painful, despite flexing it out sides.
Once on, I found it too tight on ears (unable to unfold them!) and glasses/sunglasses are difficult & painful to jam in. The padding may well give a little with use, but it was also tight on the cheeks. So much so that nobody recognised the squished-faced wearer, which might be an advantage for some I suppose?!
Might be fine for others, but sadly, I had to return this wonderful product. I think it's the design/style having to allow for the flip-front mechanism etc. My existing non-flip helmet (the L size one), is a squeeze but not painful like the XXL shox. I am hoping that a non-flip XXL might be better. (NB: I tried finding XXL in shops but to no avail).
Very smart looking and easy to use.
The push button that releases the helmet visor is very easy to use and ergonomic.
Helmet looks more expensive that it is.
Very comfortable fit and good padding inside... and the sizing for me was spot on.
Obviously I haven't had any accidents, but the helmet even doesn't get too scratched up easy.
All in all, I can't fault it. Very pleased.
