The long awaited SHOEI NXR2 launches worldwide in September 2021 and will be available from all leading Australian motorcycle dealers.
The NXR2 is the latest in SHOEI’s long standing RF/NXR Series helmets, combining more than 60-years helmet design experience with the latest manufacturing technology. The versatile Sports Performance helmet can be used for all riding conditions from road touring and commuting to the racetrack.
SHOEI Brand Manager, Damien Irwin, is excited to launch the NXR2 into Australia, with the range having strong enquiries over the past few months. “The NXR2 is a stunning and versatile helmet to suit a wide range of riders. It’s also one of the first helmet models to be certified to the latest European Standard ECE 22.06 update, so you know you’ve made a smart investment in your safety.
“SHOEI is renowned for producing premium helmets and the NXR2 is no exception. From the way it feels to the level of performance and protection offered, there’s nothing quite like a SHOEI”, he said.
The NXR2 is a step up from the original NXR, sporting improvements in ventilation, comfort and hold as well as refined aerodynamics to produce a significant reduction in drag and lift, reducing the strain on a rider’s neck.
SHOEI has developed vortex generators on the side of the visor to reduce wind turbulence and noise, while new, more voluminous cheek pads further restrain wind noise within the helmet, without blocking informative road sounds.
Each NXR2 features the new CWR-F2 visor system which provides riders with protection from 99% of UV rays and is 10% larger for improved lateral vision. The visor has a conveniently located centre closure and locking mechanism and new first position shield opening feature for advanced venting and defogging.
Whilst the NXR2 does sport new features, staples of the SHOEI range are included, such as the Emergency Quick Release System to help first responders safely remove your helmet with minimal load on a rider’s neck. The NXR2 has also been designed and tested in SHOEI’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel facility to ensure optimum aerodynamic and ventilation performance.
Riders are kept cool with six air intakes and four exhaust outlets, with the large three position lower vent shutter designed for ease of use with riding gloves. The strategically shaped air-intake streamlines the profile of the helmet design, with a compact integrated spoiler helps reduce the forces placed on a rider’s head.
The full range of NXR2 helmets will arrive throughout September and October with six graphics and six colours to choose from, including matt, gloss and metallic options. Prices start from $799.90 for solid colours and $949.90 for graphics.
McLeod Accessories is proud to be the official and exclusive distributor of SHOEI helmets in Australia.
