Finally I got my Helds after almost a year wait. I live in the desert and it gets HOT. 90 degrees is the morning temperature. I wanted something that would protect me and provide airflow. I have a BMW RT and my hands are behind a fairing so any airflow in the 115 degree heat is a blessing. These gloves are everything that are claimed to be. Great protection, great airflow, great fit (like a glove:-)). The only complaint I have is against their US distributor or lack thereof. They are leaving money on the table. The gloves are expensive and worth every penny.

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.

I am a modular helmet fan. I've had KBC, Nolan, Shoei and Bilt modulars. I wear glasses and like to be able to sip from my camelback in the blazing Arizona heat. I also like to listen to music via my headset. The NeoTec exceeds all of my expectations for these things. I had a Multi-tec that saved me from injury in an accident in 2008 so I knew the NeoTec would be safe. I thought long and hard before I got the NeoTec. I did a lot of research and it boiled down to the NeoTec or the Schuberth C3. The Schuberth is one heck of a helmet. In my opinion the NeoTec is significantly better. The fit and finish can be described in one word: flawless! The paint is absolutely gorgeous even if it is boring since there are no graphics. The Neotec fits my squarish head better than the Schuberth. I don't have any of the pressure points that some Schuberth guys have mentioned. I also don't have the front facepiece right up against my chin. The NeoTec is a quiet helmet also. My music sounds that much better and at lower volume. Speaking of music, the NeoTec is Bluetooth headset friendly. The ear piece cutouts are actually where your ears are! Sounds simple until you have a helmet that has ear openings halfway up the side of your head. The NeoTec also is very friendly to aftermarket headsets. The sunvisor actuator is not located along the lower left edge. Every Bluetooth headset I've seen mounts on the lower left edge. On the Schuberth your options are severely limited and expensive. Also, those options aren't necessarily the best. You can mount any Bluetooth headset on the NeoTec AND still use that most excellent sunvisor as designed.
The Shoei doesn't protect your noggin any better than any other DOT certified helmet. What it does is make your helmet wearing riding experience that much better and enjoyable. While it is less expensive than the Schuberth it is still not a bargain basement item. However, it is worth every dollar. There is a new king of the modular hill and it is the Shoei Neotec!
Yes, I recommend this product.
