The original NXR already was a pure sports performance helmet, designed for those who wished to take it up a notch. But Shoei did not rest on its laurels and they managed to distill everything they learned through years of research and development into the new and improved NXR2! Shoei’s NXR2 offers everything a race/sport rider needs to stay safe on the street and track. When deciding on a new helmet and safety is your top priority you cannot go wrong with this new NXR2.
A helmet's job first and foremost is to provide protection. Constructed from Shoei’s Advanced Integrated Matrix (AIM) is essentially a mix of various layers of fiberglass making it lightweight, strong and flexible. This ensures an effective impact absorption distributed over the largest possible area. The chinstrap is an important part of the helmet’s effectiveness in a crash and It is also the part that you interact with the most when putting on and taking off the helmet. The NXR2 features a Double-D buckle. This is probably the oldest style buckle and has the simplest design. Yet it is considered to be the safest to date and Double-D chin straps are the only ones allowed on the racetrack. In addition the NXR2 features extensive safety systems adding to its protective features namely; Shoei’s Emergency Quick Release System and a multi density EPS liner. The NXR2 is ECE 22.06 approved, giving it another nutch up on its competitors! This safety rating is also road legal in many other countries like Australia and Canada.
Besides safety, comfort is key to any good helmet, this NXR2 is one of the few helmets out there that does a fantastic job. There are 6 inlets and 4 strategically positioned rear outlets that manage the air flow even at extremely high speed. Regarding those high speeds, the NXR2 is aerodynamically shaped and the integrated spoiler keeps the helmet stable, which all minimizes strain on the neck. Available in 4 shell sizes, Shoei ensures a compact and sleek fit, a factor that makes it a perfect lid for those who consider style as important as safety and performance. The NXR2 is fitted with a removable and washable interior. The Fiberglass / fiber mix shell makes the helmet weigh 1390g and our customers rate this helmet to have an Intermediate fit.
A helmet is arguably the most expressive piece of gear that a motorcyclist can wear. The NXR2 truly offers something for every rider's taste, if this particular version of the NXR2 is not your style, simply check out the other designs for the NXR2 right here!
The circumference of your head provides a good guideline for the size you need for a helmet. Use a tape measure to measure the widest circumference of your head. For most people, this point is about an inch above your eyebrows, along the junction of your ear and over the lump on the back of your head. In the size chart you will find which size fits the circumference of your head in cm.
All heads are different and that is why manufacturers make different helmet shapes, this can be roughly categorized into three shapes: round, oval and round-oval.
Most motorcycle helmet manufacturers provide a predominantly round-oval fit so that they can appeal to the widest possible audience. Keep in mind that the fit of a helmet is very complex and difficult to describe exactly. Small differences may therefore also be possible within these three categories!
In general, the helmet sizes and the corresponding number of cm do overlap. If your previous old AGV was size L, chances are you also need an L for your new Nolan. But as mentioned before, there can be small differences in fit per brand and even series. That is why it can happen that the cool new helmet you've been eyeing, even when you have measured yourself well, simply wont fit well.
You can check the size and fit in the following ways:
A good "tight" fit is what you are looking for, after all, you don't want your helmet to suddenly start shifting while riding. If you think the helmet is too small, keep in mind that the inner lining hase to be worn in a bit, and the helmet will become a bit wider when used. The cheek pads in particular usually feel quite tight in the beginning but quickly become more comfortable.
The best way to determine whether a helmet has a good tight fit or simply is to small, is to keep the helmet on at home for half an hour to an hour. If you don't start to suffer from a headache or get red pressure spots, Then it's all good!
