Shoei Neotec Borealis Modular Helmet The Neotec Borealis graphic offers a high-vis option to the Neotec lineup. 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.

This truly is an awesome helmet.I have been wearing daily for about a month now with absolutely no issues at all. Pinlock works as advertised, sun visor is equivalent to a shoei dark smoke and works great, operation is very smooth but awkward at first because the slide moves up for the shield to go down and down to go up. Flows a good amount of air, shield has strong detents, but the most impressive attribute of this helmet is how stable it is at speed. I have yet to experience any head buffeting especially when head checking. Top of the line Shoei Quality and great aggressive looks, doesn't have that tour modular appearance to me.
Yes, I recommend this product.
