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. Face Shield Features: Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking Pinlock-ready CNS-1 face shield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert lens 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 Double D-ring closure Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

I've been using this helmet all winter and love it. The pin lock does a great job of keeping the shield from fogging up in cold weather. The fit and finish of the helmet is excellent, and it is very comfortable. The only negatives I can think of are that the flip down sun visor seems to fog up fairly easily, and the helmet can be a bit loud depending on your riding position, and when the vents are closed (I'm 5'10" and ride a Honda 919). Overall an excellent buy and I don't regret it one bit.

Icon 29er Gloves Riding in the summer doesn't mean you have to suffer heat stroke or soupy mitts. It also doesn't mean you need to take out a 2nd mortgage to afford a nice pair of ventilated gloves. Enter the Icon Twenty-Niner Gloves. At an affordable price point and designed to provide ample protection in concert with flow through ventilation, the Twenty-Niner Glove is an instant success. Features: Abrasion resistant premium grade goatskin palm Synthetic leather finger gussets Hi-flow backhand mesh Hook and loop wrist closure Pre-curved palm and finger design

The Twenty-Niner is a really good glove over all. There isn't anything negative I can think of. It's a great buy for an entry level protection, spring and summer glove.

The HJC RPHA Max is a great helmet. I would compare it to the Shoei Neotec. I would say the comfort is nearly on par with the Shoei, minus the little extra space around the temples. However there is a weight difference. The Shoei Neotec is listed at 3 lbs. 15-7/8 oz. where the HJC RPHA Max comes in at 3 lbs. 9-1/8 oz. Honestly the only negative marks I could even think to give this helmet would be for noise level. I ride a naked bike and the noise under certain conditions is defiantly noticeable. This however is not a big deal to me because I usually have ear buds in when I ride anyway. The HJC RPHA Max, to me, is an excellent balance of form and function. And at around $175 cheaper than the Shoie Neotec, it's got a lot of bang for the buck.
