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

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.

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.
