The all-new SHOEI J-Cruise is not your average open-face lid. Packed with innovative features like the large, smooth-operating and distortion-free CJ-2 shield (complete with an industry-first integrated air dam), a built-in internal sun shield, advanced ventilation, and a fully removable 3D Max-Dry interior system, the J-Cruise does it all while keeping you safe and connected with the road ahead.
Thanks to time well spent in SHOEI’s in-house wind tunnels, the J-Cruise boasts advancements in shell and shield design that have yielded dramatic reductions in unwanted road noise and wind turbulence near the face. In addition to optimal shell and shield aerodynamics, as well as liner components designed to prevent unwanted road noises from entering through the bottom of the helmet, a dual-ridge window bead increases overall riding comfort by offering a wind and waterproof seal.
The J-Cruise’s larger CJ-2 shield provides a wider and taller field of vision than its predecessor. Additionally, the CJ-2 protects against 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays, and SHOEI’s 3D injection-molding process ensures a distortion-free view throughout the entire field of vision. Coupled with the QR-N base plate system, shield changes and base plate function have never been smoother. The J-Cruise also features a new shield locking mechanism for a secure closure and easy opening. The CJ-2 shield comes Pinlock® ready.
The J-Cruise’s built-in QSV-1 sun shield gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion. A large, easily located switch activates the 3D injection-molded inner shield, and the distortion-free, anti-fog, scratch-resistant view blocks 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays just like the CNS-1 external shield that lies ahead. The forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, allowing for the integrity of the helmet’s inner EPS liner to remain intact. The QSV-1 sun shield exceeds the ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyewear.
Utilizing SHOEI’s wind tunnels to help reveal the optimal balance between airflow and silence, SHOEI engineers equipped the all-new J-Cruise with a large upper vent shutter for optimal air intake and ease of use with riding gloves, a lower neck outlet vent, and two uniquely-positioned upper exhaust outlet vents to take better advantage of negative pressure suction-all yielding dramatically-improved cool-air intake and hot-air expulsion.
The J-Cruise is equipped with a fully removable, washable, and replaceable 3D Max-Dry interior system. The 3D center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider’s head, allowing for an extremely comfortable fit while maintaining the firm hold necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding. Additionally, the 3D-shaped cheek pads are available in different thicknesses for a customizable fit. As if that wasn’t enough, SHOEI’s exclusive Max-Dry liner material absorbs and dissipates sweat and moisture twice as fast as traditional Nylon interiors.
