Tel 012 2710 070/1 SHOEI NXR HELMET The new NXR is a value-for-money helmet aimed at a wide variety of riders - from every day commuters to track day warriors - the NXR offers all one could want when it comes to a quality, safe, reliable helmet at a price that won’t leave your head feeling sore. SHOEI’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel at their Ibaraki Factory was the key to the NXR Helmet Design Process. Thanks to the time spent in the wind tunnel the NXR sport; a more compact and aerodynamic shell than the XR-1100 and is the lightest Snell Certified Helmet in the Shoei Line as of its introduction.Using the Shoei Wind Tunnel the optimal balance of ventilation and noise was identified. Using this knowledge Shoei Engineers equipped the NXR with a large, three position lower vent shutter for ease of use with gloves, three upper vents for optimal air intake, and four upper exhaust vents too take full advantage of negative pressure suction. The end result is dramatically improved cool air intake and hot air expulsion. CWR-1 shield provides a vast field of vision that rivals helmet less peripheral. In addition to protecting against 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays, the CWR-1 shield offers a distortionfree view throughout the entire range thanks to SHOEI’s 3D injection-moulding process. The NXR all-new QR-E base plate system facilitates quicker shield changes than ever before. The NXR features the SHOEI Multi-Ply Matrix AIM+ Shell construction. Combining fibreglass with organic fibres, the NXR proprietary AIM+ Shell is not only strong, it is extremely lightweight, and comes in an industry-leading four shell sizes to ensure a custom fit for heads between the sizes of XS-XXL. Dual-Layer, Multi-Density EPS liner not only provides an enhanced impact absorption by utilizing varying densities of foam in key areas around the riders head, it is also designed to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS, further enhancing the NXR superior ventilation. Fully removable, washable, adjustable, and replaceable 3D Max-Dry System II interior. SHOEI equipped the NXR Helmet with its exclusive Emergency Quick Release System (technology borrowed from The Shoei X-Twelve Helmet) that allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from an injured rider’s helmet. When the cheek pads have been removed, the helmet can be safely lifted from a rider’s head without creating unnecessary strain in the neck area. The new range of NXR colours and designs are now available in SA. Featured here is the STAB TC-8 (Orange) and STAB TC-2 (white and blue). Available from Linex Lifestyle Centre Randburg @ R9,700 each.
