Shoei's eagerly awaited Glamster model joins the brand’s much loved J.O. and Ex-Zero models to complete their retro-styled line-up. It's a stunning helmet with a small, sleek shell design free from much of the clutter you tend to find on modern day helmets. Make no mistakes in comparing the Glamster with other retro-styled helmets first and foremost the modern safety features that make Shoei such a well-respected name in the motorcycle world are present in its design.
The Glamster uses Shoei's much Advance Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM) shell design: a composite 5 layer fibreglass and organic blend making for a very strong, slightly flexible helmet. The EPS liner offers a multi-density, shock-absorbing polystyrene blend designed to work for you when things go wrong. Shoei have also incorporated the Emergency Quick Release System in this helmet meaning trained emergency service personnel can pull the red tabs at the bottom of the helmet to release the cheek pads and avoid potential neck injuries when removing the helmet in case of an accident.
The EPS liner has channels in them that allow airflow throughout the helmet when you open the forehead vent. Additional, mesh-backed vents can be found on the chin bar. Brushed metal side pods keep the visor in place and a rubber seal prevents any water or wind getting in. The visor can be equipped with the included pin-lock insert to stop it from fogging up.
The Shoei Glamster is their first real modern day attempt at blending modern function with classic design form, and in our opinion they've absolutely nailed it. It truely looks the part and is an absolute pleasure to wear, being both light and comfortable. We’re so impressed by the Glamster helmet, we might just consider forgiving Shoei for their horrendous naming for it!
