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

This helmet is really quiet compared to other modulars I have owned. The quality is excellent. It was bit tricky putting in the headphone speakers. You need to remove a lot of stuff to get to the pockets, and remove the padding on the earpiece cover which is glued in place. Takes some work, but when it is done, the sound is great.
The shield does not fog so far- the pinblock insert seems to be doing its job.

 Gerbing Stuff Sack
Gerbing Stuff Sack
Gerbing Stuff Sack Gerbing Stuff Sack is a handy little item for keeping your gear organized. The stuff sack is large enough to fit both a jacket liner and a pants liner. In fact, with a little effort I was able to squeeze almost all my heated gear - XL socks, pants and jacket liner, AND a dual portable temp controller - into a single sack! The only thing left is my gloves, and I have a separate bag I keep on the bike with all my gloves in it. Highly recommended for trips where you're likely to encounter occasional, but not constant, need for heated gear. Old part #CFL.

Not a lot can be said about this product. It is well constructed and does its job. I bought it because I did not know how much you could fold up the Gerbing jacket liner that I purchased. I learned that it could be folded enough to fit into the Gerbing Stuff Bag, so I bought the bag in order to have protection of the right size for the jacket.

These boots are really comfy. They fit exactly as they should. I wear a 10.5 (wide) shoe in everything except those imports from China, and these fit correctly out of the box. I came from some "Honda" branded boots that were heavy and never were comfortable for walking. I wore the Alpinestars around the house for a few hours, and they were ready for the road. They provide a better feel for the controls and are really "grippy" when putting the feet down on the road when stopping. I have not tried them in the rain (yet), but expect them to perform as indicated.

Great socks. The padding is right where it should be. They are very comfortable. Even though they are heavier that what I was wearing, I am confident they will work for all year round.
Pros Comfortable, Great Value

Well, I proofed the gloves, but have not had any "opportunity" to ride in the rain to check how it works. I am sure the time will come, but this is like insurance... ya gotta have it, but hope to never use it.

Well, it is not the temp that is keeping me indoors, it is the snow and ice!! I have to wait until the roads are clear to actually test this product in the real world. It seems to work, but will not know until I can get out on two wheels to really check it.
Pros Comfortable, Rugged
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this to save some wiring problems with needing two cables to cover the heated gear and my battery charger. However there is now even a better use: I can connect my compressor to the Gerbing plug and do not have to remove the seat and the side panel of the bike if I need to fix a flat!!

Had to exchange the L for a M. Other than that, they are magnificent. They are very comfortable, and when fit correctly still allow good control and grip. I can even dial up the controller with the goves on.
Sometimes when you spend a lot you do not get quality. In this case, the cost was well worth it!
Pros Rugged, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

I wish I had waited. I actually added some velcro strips to my jacket and the back of the controller unit, so I do not need this item. It is well constructed, and fits the unit perfectly, I just do not have a need for it at this time.
Yes, I recommend this product.
