Shoei J-O Waimea Helmet

Progression, innovation, evolution-these words shape the foundation of everything we do at SHOEI. As driven as we are to constantly push the envelope of technology, safety and performance, however, we also enjoy paying homage to the glory days of motorcycling-a time reminiscent of design simplicity, classic styling, and unadulterated good times. Don't be fooled, though... The new J-O isn't just a trendy "vintage" lid with amazing lines. Sure, it has amazing lines. It even adopts classic styling traits from some of the great SHOEI helmets of yesteryear, but the J-O also casually boasts a splash of innovation and modern functionality to help complement its retro good looks.

For those who appreciate attention to detail, quality, originality, and aren't willing to compromise the fit and finish of a modern helmet, we proudly present the SHOEI J-O in all its glory. Enjoy the ride!

Equal parts style, safety, and convenience, the J-O's integrated (retractable) CJ-3 shield offers instant relief from incoming wind while protecting against 99% of the sun's damaging UV rays. SHOEI's 3D injection-molding process ensures a distortion-free view throughout the entire field of vision (100% optically correct). The CJ-3 shield is also available in optional Dark Smoke, HD Yellow, Spectra Chrome, and Spectra Gold to help accentuate any riding condition.

With a round shape similar to vintage goggles and bubble shields, the CJ-3 shield provides plenty of space for most sunglasses when in the down/closed position, further enhancing your styling options.

The rush of streaming air into an open-face helmet can wreak havoc on your riding experience, but gone are the days of drying eyes and discomfort thanks to the J-O's CJ-3 shield. After time well spent in SHOEI's in-house wind tunnel, the CJ-3's design and size were optimized to restrain unwanted road noise and wind turbulence near the face. What's more, the surface area on the sides of the shield was maximized to help reduce the "rolling-in" effect that wind turbulence can cause at high speed.

In addition to optimal shield shape and size, airflow spoiler tabs located on the bottom of the shield function not only to help open and close the shield with ease (even with riding gloves on), but also act as spoilers to efficiently manage the flow of air around the helmet.

Few characteristics of a motorcycle helmet are as critical as its first-layer of defense, which is precisely why the all-new J-O features the SHOEI-exclusive Multi-Ply Matrix AIM Shell construction. Combining fiberglass with lightweight organic and high-performance fibers, the J-O's proprietary AIM Shell provides optimal impact-absorption, strength and elasticity. DOT Certified, the J-O's AIM Shell is available in 6 sizes from XS to XXL (3 shells/4 liners) to ensure a custom fit for every rider.

The J-O's Multi-Density EPS Liner not only provides enhanced impact absorption by utilizing varying densities of foam, it is designed to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS to help cool your dome on those hot summer days. Moreover, precise placement of high-quality multi-density EPS material yields a more compact, lightweight design.

Additionally, no safety has been compromised due to the presence of the integrated CJ-3 shield, as the thickness of the EPS liner material is consistent throughout the entire helmet.

The J-O is equipped with a classic, high-quality and lightweight D-ring chinstrap for safety, ease of use and perfect adjustability.

The J-O is equipped with a fully removable, washable, replaceable and adjustable interior system. Multi-layer 3D-contoured cheek pads provide the comfort and firm hold necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding, and are available in different thicknesses for a customizable fit.

To help accentuate the overall finish and premium aesthetics of the J-O, a matte synthetic Nubuck leather lines the forehead area to prevent unwanted reflections into the shield (enhanced visibility), and glossy synthetic leather is used around the bottom edge of the interior for ease of cleaning and added styling.
