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 was committed to buying a modular helmet for this years riding season and had originally decided on a Multitec because the price of the Neotec seem prohibitive. Finally two of the features were things I felt I couldn't do without. Sun shield and better ventilation. Both work extremely well as does everything on this helmet. It is VERY comfortable but does seem a little noisy. This being my first modular maybe not by comparison. The extra $ was well spent, I love the helmet.

First the socks arrived the day after I ordered them, amazing. These things are comfortable beyond belief to the point that they have a hinge like swatch of cloth on the inside of the ankle so there is less bunch up. I have large calves and was worried going to the knee they would be too snug. They're not.
