Shoei Neotec Borealis Modular Helmet The Neotec Borealis graphic offers a high-vis option to the Neotec lineup. Evolving on previous designs, Shoei has revamped its modular helmet style with a streamlined and attractively sculpted shape that conveys the feel of freely moving through the outdoors in the Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet. Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visors open/close mechanism inside all ventilation mechanisms are shaped and positioned in such a way as to reduce any possible drag. A redesigned aerodynamic spoiler also helps to cut lift, reducing neck strain on long, cross country rides. In the Shoei Neotec all these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance. The Shoei Neotec Borealis Helmet's chin bar is connected to the same axis point and mechanism as its shield, minimizing extra parts. This also enables simultaneous closing of the shield with the chin bar, which is then held in place with an easy-open lock release button. The shield lock system offers secure closure or the ability to keep the shield slightly open to allow for increased airflow. With the Shoei Neotec Helmet, Shoei now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmets liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button.

Fits my large round head quite well (I bought a large). Airflow is very good at speed. Visibility is outstanding, and the pinlock system really works to reduce fogging. Easy to install bluetooth speakers in the foam cutouts inside the helmet. Borealis stripes add a lot of visibility but helmet still manages to look relatively stylish.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Jacket is very much as described on the website. Old school cafe racer styling, very nice, thick leather, good fit. I have used this jacket in temperatures ranging from 55-70. At the lower temps it definitely needs another layer.. a slim down vest works beautifully. Sleeves have zippers that close down over gauntlet style gloves to effectively block airflow (sleeves too thick to put some gauntlet style gloves over the sleeves). High collar is nice. Special inside pockets hold armor securely. Convenient outside zip pocket on upper left holds my wallet. Overall, a great jacket. Would buy it again. Even get compliments on styling!
Yes, I recommend this product.
