Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Building upon the success of their previous modular helmets, the Shoei Neotec Helmet was designed with long distance and ADV touring in mind. The innovative tri-composite shell has been designed to provide riders with a smooth and quiet ride while reducing, lift, weight and increasing overall safety. The shell of the Neotec has also been designed to house the internal drop-down sun visor, eliminating the need to reduce the thickness of the EPS liner and potentially compromise safety. An integrated face shield shield and chinbar pivot point reduces the number of moving parts, mitigates wind noise and enables riders to close both the chinbar and face shield in the same motion. Shoeis stainless steel 360 Pivot Locking System secures the chinbar when it is in the closed position and the dual-layer EPS liner provides enhance impact absorption and is channeled to facilitate ventilation. From the shell to EPS to the 3D formed comfort liner, the Shoei Neotec is purpose built to provide unrivaled rider comfort and safety. Perfect for nearly any type of ride and rider, the Neotec is the ultimate in touring performance.

First, I would like to give a thanks to the excellent customer service I received while making this purchase. I was in the market for a new helmet and was very undecided about which way to go and unfortunately my selection in local shops has gotten quite small over the years. I sent in quite a few emails and had a phone call of about 20 minutes before finally pulling the trigger and customer service was excellent throughout.
This is the most expensive helmet I have owned. My previous two helmets were a Nolan 100E (modular) and a Scorpion Exo-500 which I only had for one riding season because it never fit my head properly. I was nervous paying this much for a helmet, but when I received it and put it on for the first time, I decided it was worth it right then. The helmet fit my head perfectly and the internals felt very soft and plush. On my first ride, I fell further in love with the helmet as it provided excellent air flow, good noise control, excellent visibility, and I liked the sun visor which I used along with my sun glasses when riding directly into the sun. And that first ride was a good test since it was a two day ride through the midwest in temperatures that reached up to 106 degrees. I have no complaints about the helmet. Also, I was able to install my Scala Cardo G4 just fine.
I love the helmet and thanks again to the customer service at Revzilla who never got annoyed by all my questions.
