The Glamster Resurrection harks back to the 1980s with its narrow chinbar and mesh-backed vents, which go straight through to the interior without any option to close them. There’s a new-school quick-release visor, with a screw-down mechanism to secure the all-new visor itself to the composite-fibre shell. Modernity does get a look in with the opening and locking mechanism at the lower left edge of the visor, which is taken directly from Shoei’s NXR sports helmet.
And a Pinlock Evo anti-mist insert is included with the helmet, again taken from the NXR, to keep vision clear. The new visor seals against a rubber strip around the visor aperture to keep out wind and rain, with Shoei promising the Glamster Resurrection is a credible option for touring riding.
A vent below the retro Shoei logo does have a shutter to give the rider the option to block or allow air to flow through channels in the multiple-density EPS liner, which is backed by a brushed interior similar to its retro stablemates. That interior includes modern essentials like emergency-release cheekpads and synthetic leather panels above the eyebrows and around the neckroll. The lid is secured by a D-ring strap to maintain the simplicity of the design.
