Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet 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 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 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. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking New 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 Improved Ventilation and Aerodynamics Newly designed vortex generators 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 All new 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

After researching and test fitting most major brands, I went with this NeoTec helmet. It didn't quite fit perfect but the retailer allowed me to insert different cheek pads to get the perfect fit. Shoei believes I have a small brain and big mouth. Unfortunately I had to buy thinner cheek pads, and couldn't order them with the new helmet.
It accommodates my Sena-10 perfectly, and my side mount drift Ghost HD camera. No whistle or excessive wind noise and it buffets the wind nicely. Top gun shield is awesome... unfortunately (and I understand why they do for safety reasons) you can not get a mirror tint finish face shield replacement. With only 2 minor set backs with the cheek pads and the lack of mirror tinted lenses... hand down, the best helmet I have ever purchased.

Duribility left blank because I havn't had it too long yet. I'm in the process of training a new rider, we both have one in our tour helmets. It took only 1 ride to convince me that it was the best thing I've ever bought for my bike. Traveling down the highway at 110 kph, I get a phone call from my wife to test it, she couldn't tell I was on the bike, I had a little wind noise from my helmet but not bad. It fits great in the Shoei Neotec and my buddies HJC Modular (not sure the model) The only thing they could improve on this product is an open channel option for more than 2 people per channel.
