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. 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 Helmet is gloss finish.

The quality is obvious. It is solidly constructed, the flip hinges are smooth. It is a bit heavier than a full-face but I expected that with the modular. The fit was comfortable immediately. I installed an EdSets headset which fits great in the ear cutouts. The pinlock fog shield works well and the flip down sun shield is easy to use. The hi-vis coloring does its job too. I highly recommend this helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I can't say enough about these pants. I am a tall woman and had to go to the men's pants to get a pair that are long enough. That being said, the RevZilla staff helped me with the fit and they were spot on. The pants are well ventilated. I like the placement of the hip and knee protection. The quality is apparent. I also like the removable rain liner, though I have not had to test its effectiveness.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These pants fit well, except they were too short when sitting on my motorcycle. Tall ladies should look for a different pair of pants because these don't come in tall. Otherwise I would recommend them.
Yes, I recommend this product.
