I like this jacket for hot-weather riding. I have the silver color, and it is highly visible, flows lots of air, fits good, looks good, and is comfortable to ride in.
Yes, I recommend this product.

My wife loves this jacket as it looks good, fits good, is highly visible in the white color, and flows lots of air in the hot weather. Good price for a very nice jacket. Also, Revzilla has been very easy to work with, and has lots of inventory from which to choose.
Yes, I recommend this product.

First of all, I ordered a med Shoei Neotec helmet as that is what the sizing suggested, although I've always had a large in Arai helmets. The med was too small, so I ordered a large, but the cheek pads still seemed way too tight. The 31mm pads are a little less tight, but I still find, even them, quite tight, but overall I can live with them. I wish they'd give a choice of pads, or maybe an even exchange for different size pads. Why not cheek pads that have peel-off parts like some helmets do, so the customer can custom-fit himself. These are pretty high-priced helmets to have to turn around and shell out even more money to make them fight right.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These are very nice gloves for hot weather riding. Lots of airflow. Probably not as much protection as heavier leather, but that is a trade-off we are willing to make in the heat. We did find the sizing to be quite small, (reason for only 4 stars) so I'd recommend ordering at least 1 size larger...we needed 2 sizes larger to fit.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These units are really nice and work well. We have them installed in Shoei Neotec modular helmets. Just a couple of items:
1. Whenever you put on the helmet or drop down the chin guard you must reposition the boom mike, and it is a little tricky getting it threaded up behind the chin air-guard to position it in front of your lips.
2. There is a setting that is supposed to allow the units to be voice activated, but the squelch is not adjustable on this, and because of previous wind-activation complaints, they have set it really high, and I cannot make it work. .. even by blowing hard into it like they suggested. ( My reason for only 4 stars) It is just "on" all the time, but that is fine, and they are very clear and have nice range.
3. Also, the instruction book says the units will turn on with a 1 second push on the 2 activation buttons, but the factory tells me that you have to hold for 3-4 seconds. I thought they were faulty at first, so don't believe the book on this point.
4. The units work beautifully paired to a smart phone with blue tooth. You can answer calls, and also listen to music with blue tooth all at the same time. You do have to switch off the intercom to listen to music, but either rider can pop the button and start talking at any time. I wish the units would work with that voice-activation (maybe adjustable squelch) , then this music-listening feature would be automatic. But it is really good anyway.
Yes, I recommend this product.

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 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 Helmets 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 Be sure to check out our Shoei Neotec Review above, in which we detail and break down all of the features and functionality of the brand new Shoei Neotec Helmet. Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

My wife and I both got these new neotec helmets. It's our first time for modular. Always used Arai full-face before. The Neo tec is a little noisier, Also, we had to go a size up, as the recommended med size is just way too tight. I have a Large, same as I always had in Arai. We have new Sena SMH 10 radios on them. It is a little challenge to get that boom mike in the proper position in front of my lips when I lock down the chin piece. I have to sort of thread it in with bare hands..hard to do with gloves on, but it all does work very well when in place. We are quite happy with them overall. I guess they ventilate some, but on a hot day they are still hot, and I always ride with my face shield in the 1" open detent position. on my Harley Ultra. I love that interior sun shield...that is really slick.
Yes, I recommend this product.
