Shoei Ex-zero £360

www.shoeias­ THIS NEW 80S-IN­SPIRED hel­met from Shoei isn’t go­ing to re­place your flip-front or race lid. It doesn’t of­fer the wind or rain pro­tec­tion needed of a long-dis­tance or high-speed hel­met. It’s re­ally about what it looks like and here, it ex­cels. Hang­ing off the bars of my Du­cati Scram­bler, it just looks fan­tas­tic. There is a drop-down vi­sor but it doesn’t quite cover your whole face, so there’s still some ex­posed ar­eas. Which means rid­ing into the rain feels like mil­lions of tiny nee­dles are be­ing hurled into your face, so I’ve been us­ing mo­tocross gog­gles in­stead. It helps a tiny bit with the pain, more so with keep­ing your face warm, but in­creases the ‘cool fac­tor’ far more than any phys­i­cal ben­e­fit. It’s avail­able in plain colours with matte and gloss fin­ishes, and a nice colour scheme to be re­leased later in the year, along with pop-on peaks.

Vi­sor works ok but mo­tox gog­gles also help
