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.

Although I haven't had it long enough to know how it's going to function over the long haul, my initial impressions of the Neotec are very favorable. I got it as a replacement for a Shoei Multitec.
Three things really stand out for me: the ventilation is fantastic, it is VERY quiet, and the internal sun visor works beautifully. It's also a plus that it comes with a Pinlock shield, has a wide field of vision and is a good looking helmet.
I got the same size as my Multitec and was surprised that it was a tighter fit. Then I remembered I thought the same thing about the Multitec when it was new and that it doesn't take long for it to break in. In particular, the cheek pads on the Neotec are quite snug (I'd guess I'm not alone on this since the narrower replacement pads are out of stock). Assuming that it's going to wear in about the same as the Multitec, this shouldn't be a problem for long.
The only downside to this helmet is the price but you really do get what you pay for. I'm not going to compromise on protecting my head. I want something that is both high quality and comfortable in a wide range of temperatures and I think I've found those things in this helmet.
