The J-Cruise II, SHOEI's premium open-face helmet, features their latest technical advances to revolutionize the entire product design. The simplicity and freedom of the original open-face design has taken a leap forward with the addition of an inner sun visor. Further functionality and comfort is offered with a compact lightweight design and improved ventilation performance, in addition to SHOEI's uncompromised safety. The evolution of the J-Cruise II will enhance your riding experience.

Note: The SHOEI J-CRUISE II ships with a Clear shield and uses the CJ-2 Shield or QSV-2 Sun Shield as a replacement or upgrade.
Refined and Advanced Design: With the J-Cruise II, SHOEI has updated the design with a modern and progressive look that is also more compact than the previous model. Details such as the sun visor operating mechanism, inner sun shield, and aerodynamic performance have been refined. Additionally, all-new features such as micro-ratchet chin strap, extended inner sun shield, and intercom-ready design have been adopted for the new J-Cruise II.
Aerodynamic Performance: The new J-Cruise II boasts better aerodynamics largely due to the refined rear shape of the helmet, which integrates a spoiler into the shell design. The overall aerodynamic performance has been improved over the previous model. In-house wind tunnel tests confirm reductions in lift, drag, and yawing.
Interior Comfort System: The fabric used on the interior surface is a hybrid between a moisture-absorbent, quick-drying material and soft raised fabric. Moisture-absorbent and quick-drying material is used on areas that cover the cheeks and brow where sweat tends to stick; soft raised fabric is used on the parts that are close to where the skin tends to rub against when the rider wears / removes the helmet, offering greater snugness and optimum comfort while worn. On the J-Cruise II, SHOEI uses something more durable for the leather-like material on the lower edge of the cheek pad than before, adding a fabric pattern with attention to detail.
Ventilation: The ventilation system of the J-Cruise II has been upgraded with an additional intake hole which increases air intake by 30% over the previous model. Additionally, the exhaust outlet has been reshaped with a patent pending design, thus improving exhaust venting by 20%. These systems have been thoroughly measured in SHOEI's in-house wind tunnel testing facility.
CJ-2 Shield: The J-Cruise II's advanced shield system provides a large, distortion-free view, facilitates smooth and easy shield changes, protects against 99% of harmful UV rays, and comes equipped with an internal sun shield that offers riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion. The rib at the bottom edge increases rigidity, while the shape reduces wind turbulence from rolling into the bottom of the helmet. The CJ-2 shield includes built-in pins for a Pinlock EVO fog resistant system (sold separately), and new airtight window beading for maximum durability and superior sealing. The lower left edge of the shield / visor features a lock to help prevent the wearer from accidentally opening it. Additionally, the base plates will now have an all-new first position so riders can travel with the shield slightly open, which efficiently ventilates the inside of the helmet, and also quickly defogs it.
QSV-2 Sun Shield: The J-Cruise II uses a QSV-2 sun visor that's 5 mm longer than the previous model to cut down incoming light from the lower part of the shield. The visor's internal mechanism uses a strong wire, allowing smooth operation, and further refinement helps reduce unwanted noises.
Intercom Ready Design: A helmet's communication system can be a must-have feature, as it offers high levels of convenience. The J-Cruise II provides mechanisms for seamless integration with the SENA SRL and SRL 2 Bluetooth communication systems (both sold separately).
Multi-Piece / Multi-Density EPS Liner: The J-Cruise II's Multi-Piece / Multi-Density EPS Liner provides enhanced impact absorption by utilizing appropriate densities of foam in each component. The precise placement of the multi-density EPS material yields a more compact, lightweight design. Tunnels created in the EPS allow for cooling air to travel unrestricted for effective ventilation.
Multi-Ply Matrix AIM Shell: Proprietary technology integrates a multi-ply matrix specifically designed to meet DOT standards. Hand-laid interwoven layers of fiberglass with organic fibers and resin yield a high performance shell structure that is lightweight, yet rigid and also elastic.
