Everyone had raved about the Helmetlok I but many mentioned that with just 3 numbers in the combination they all wanted at least one more number.
Enter the Helmetlok II with a four (4) combination lock and it appears to be a bit larger and beefier. Have used it almost daily and it is easy to use. It provides the flexibility to lock your helmet anywhere on your bike. It is rubberized to protect bike surfaces and being slightly larger will lock around more parts on the bike.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I called the Revzilla help desk and asked for their input on the plus and minus of the Shoei vs, the Arai open face helmets - they were complentary of both, pointed out that open face helmets do not provide the protection of a full face hemlet but they conceded that here in AZ ventilation is a big issue. They said both would do welll (open afterall) so it came down to features. The Shoei has a sunvisor and the Arai does not. I went with the Shoei based on that and excellent expierence with other Shoei helmets
Yes, I recommend this product.

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. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Ventilation and Aerodynamics Vortex generator vents pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar Interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I have worn many brands of helmets both full and open as well as first the version Shoei flip up helmet many years ago. I loved the convenience of not having to remove my glasses to put a full face helmet on or take it off, but that helmet was so noisy. Even with ear plugs it was loud all related the the gap where the flip up part met the helmet body. For long trips I put strips of tape over the seams and that helped a lot.
Enter the Shoei Neotec and this is far and away one of the finest helmets I have worn. I measured my head and picked the size per the chart and it fit as if custom made. Everything works smoothly, the flip down sunscreen is so convenient and helmet is very quiet when fully closed. In town I tend to leave the face shield open to its first notch to accelerate the air flow (I live in PHX), and even with it open the sound level is quite acceptable. I had considered the Schuberth C3 but finding a size that worked for me was problematic and it cost slightly more. I believe the Schuberth was a tad lighter than the Shoei but once on the difference is hard to quantify.
Revzilla made the whole transaction quick and simple.
Yes, I recommend this product.
