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.

After riding with HJC's for over 10 years I wanted to upgrade to a better helmet and this is it. The fit is top notch, although I chose to go one size up from the measurements. Good field of vision and the integral sun visor provides good coverage without being too dark or hard to operate. The "pin lock" system work great and in 20 degree temperatures I've experienced no fogging problems. Good airflow and the helmet is reasonably quiet. The first time I rode with it was about 82 miles at highway speeds, when arriving at the destination there was no feeling of weight or having worn a "brick" on my head for the past hour. You might think it a little pricey, but you have to ask yourself how much your head is worth in an accident.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I recently purchased this helmet as a replacement for a Symax II modular helmet. I am exceptionally pleased with this product as the fit is better than my previous helmet. The noise factor is lower than expected and the visibility is excellent. Airflow seems good, although a good deal of air comes in through the chin area. The only thing that would make this a 5 star helmet is to include the retractable sun visor. This is definitely going to serve my riding style of highway commuting, long distance touring and around town errands.
Yes, I recommend this product.
