Fantastic striking well designed light lid that suited me blasting round the lakes on my CBR or round Vegas on. V Rod. Plenty of ventilation, space for a headset and infinitely replaceable internals and lid com Continue reading...

I have quite a few different helmets and this one is the best by far. It is a great fit - snug yet comfortable and my glasses go on with no problems. I find it quieter than my other lids but, as has been mentioned, it gets a bit noisier with all the vents open which is, I guess, to be expected.
The wide view pinlock is brilliant - gives you loads of peripheral vision. We have tinted pinlocks fitted and because of their size it is as good as having a tinted visor. Removal of the visor is without doubt the best I have ever tried - it is so easy.It isn't cheap and that is probably the main criticism - but, as ever, you get what you pay for. I give it a 10 out of 10 as it does everything I need in a very lightweight package - But, as has been said before, try the helmets on as they are different shapes and you may not be a Shoei head!

I have just purchased a Shoei XR1100 and I am dissapointed with the noise aspect of it.  It has more wind noise than my old TZ-R even though the fit around my neck and ears is better than the old one and worst of all is that the vents whistle whether they are closed or open.  It is so bad that I can still hear the whistle with ear plugs in and my wife thinks that I am deaf to start with!   I would return it if I could and would not buy another one!
