Proven duo: the Shoei EX-Zero works even better in combination with cross glasses.
In the first practical test, the new retro helmet with good ventilation was able to collect plus points.
Thanks to the integrated visor, the Shoei EX-Zero can also be used without glasses in everyday life.
Speaking of visor: the so-called CJ-3 visor can be adjusted in three positions and is initially available in the colors clear, dark and yellow.
No slipping and no wobbling: in the practical test, the glasses were bombproof.
In the future, matching helmet shields are to appear, with which the helmet can be further upgraded.
In the practical test, the retro helmet was able to convince with a large field of vision.
Seven different variants are currently available. It is very likely that more decors will be offered in the future.
The inner padding is removable and can therefore be cleaned easily.
Shoei opted for the tried and tested double D-ring system for the closure.
There are three different setting positions for the visor.
Due to the design, relatively loud wind noises occur at high speeds of 120 km / h or more.
The model name can be seen on the back of the helmet.
In the practical test, the new retro helmet from Shoei made a good to very good impression.
The new Shoei EX-Zero will be available in seven color variants. The variant can be seen here “Matt Black”.
This design is called “Off white”.
Pink or red? It doesn’t matter either. Shoei calls this variant “Shine Red”.
Also chic: the Shoei EX-Zero in the color variant “Basalt Gray”.
Those who like it a bit more conspicuous could do with the color “Brilliant yellow” to become happy.
And again “Black”. This time, however, glossy and not matt.
Last but not least: the Shoei EX-Zero in “Equation TC-2”.
This variant appears a little later compared to the previous models. The other six versions will be available from July 2018.
In addition, the colored version is a bit more expensive at 459 euros. The basic models are available from 399 euros.
Visually, the newcomer is based on the EX from the 80s.
Compared to the old EX, Shoei gives the newcomer a lot of modern features.
The new EX-Zero is available in three shell sizes.
This means that it is available in sizes XS to M, L and XL to XXL.
According to the manufacturer, the new “Retro helmet” weigh approx. 1,150 grams.
Shoei offers three visor variants for the newcomer.

Shoei EX-Zero (2018)
Retro helmet in practice test
Shoei has introduced a new helmet with a retro look. The so-called Shoei EX-Zero has been available since July 2018. We had the opportunity to try out the new retro helmet.
Classic look meets modern technology: something like this could be the motto when developing the new one Shoei EX-Zero. The new Shoei hat is optically based on the classic Shoei EX from the 80s. Compared to the oldie, Shoei has given the new EX-Zero a lot of modern features that are also used in other top models from the Japanese helmet manufacturer. The integrated CJ-3 visor, which by the way is available in the three variations “clear”, “dark” and “yellow”, is adjustable. Three different setting positions are possible.
First impression of the Shoei EX-Zero
In the first practical test, the operation of the visor was pleasing. The excellent seat, the comfortable putting on and taking off, the large field of vision and the good ventilation, which ensures a cool head even at high outside temperatures, also attracted positive attention. The other side of the coin are relatively loud wind noises, which are only really noticeable at high speeds of 120 km / h. In the first practical test, cross goggles that are bombproof, but are not included in the scope of delivery, have also proven their worth. Thanks to the integrated CJ-3 visor, which can be adjusted in three positions and is initially available in the colors clear, dark and yellow, the retro helmet can also be used without glasses without any problems. Matching helmet shields can also be retrofitted, which, according to Shoei, will be available soon.
There are three different setting positions for the visor.
The new EX-Zero is available in three shell sizes. Incidentally, the fiberglass shell consists of five layers. This means that the new EX-Zero is available in sizes XS to M, L and XL to XXL. In addition, all inner pads are removable. Thus, the upholstery can be cleaned comfortably and easily. The manufacturer specifies a weight of around 1,150 grams. For comparison: the Shoei top model, the X-Spirit III racing helmet, weighs around 1,250 grams as a full-face helmet.
Shoei opted for the tried and tested double D-ring system for the closure. The new Shoei EX-Zero is initially available in the seven color variants “Off White”, “Black”, “Matt Black”, “Shine Red”, “Brilliant Yellow”, “Basalt Gray” and “Equation TC-2”. The new retro helmet has been available since July 2018 and costs 399 euros. The model variant with decor was added a little late and with a price of 459 euros a bit more expensive in comparison.
The new Shoei EX-Zero is already the second “retro” helmet that has made it into the Shoei model range. Almost two years ago, the Shoei JO, a retro-look jet helmet, celebrated its premiere, which is now available in many other designs. It can be assumed that the new EX-Zero will also receive more chic decors in the future.
