Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet SHOEI Helmet Production SHOEI Neotec Helmet

Product Details

With the popularity of sport and adventure touring at an all-time high, the advancement of the incredibly versatile modular helmet segment was a must for SHOEI engineers. Though still a respected part of our 2012 helmet lineup, the Multitec’s modular design was used as a backbone, analyzed with scrupulous eyes, and tweaked ever so slightly to yield the most progressive flip-up helmet on the market today—the all-new Neotec. Boasting improved shell aerodynamics, a wider and taller field of vision, a reduction in wind noise, an internal sun shield, and a fully removable, washable and replaceable liner system, the Neotec is the next level of modular helmet design for today’s hybrid motorcyclists.

Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visor’s 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. All these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance.

The Neotec’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 Neotec SHOEI now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmet’s liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button.

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

-All new interior
-Fully removable 3D interior liner
-Top center pad is removable and washable

It must be better than the POS I am riding with now. I hope it is much quieter.

The absolute highest quality helmet with the best features and most comfort, hands down Arai comes a close second, but I have a Shoei-shaped head (oval). Recently retired my Shoei Multitec helmet with well over 80k miles and 10+ years of use... pretty sure I will get my money's worth another 10 years!

My everyday riding helmet. Had 50,000 miles between my last 2. Most comfortable helmet I've ever had. Not cheap, but my wife says my heads worth it. Love the women, really like the helmet.

Replacing my MultiTech which was a wonderful helmet but has been worn out after years of constant usage. Friends who have gone to the Neotec have raved about the improvements and lightness. My Shoei Qwest has proven to be better than expected. I am sure the Neotec will also be a step up.

Is this helmet SNELL approved?
Ivan P on Jul 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In short: No. I just looked through the SNELL list and while several full face and some open face helmets are SNELL approved, there is not one modular helmet that made the 2015 list (I did not see a 2017 list). Source: SNELL organization list of certified helmets. I am not allowed to give the link, but just Googled it. There is a great Bike Bandit blog I read a recently found at: www.bikebandit.com/blog/post/motorcycle-helmet-faqs-dot-snell-and-ece .

With that, I recently upgraded from a BILT beginner helmet to the Shoei Neotec. What a difference. I have been riding for 7 years now, pretty much everyday (I have to catch up for all of the missed years). The Neotec is much quieter. When I wear ear plugs I can hardly hear anything, which is another issue with my SENA 20s communication device at full volume. But it is quiet in comparison.

I hope that helps.

What does it mean "pin lock ready"? Does this helmet come with pin lock or not?
Thanks

Is it blue tooth ready? or what communications system would i buy if i bought two helmets
KAW Z1 Rider on Jan 13, 2013

Lightweight, cool and comfortable
Very convenient, cool, and comfortable. A little more wind noise than a non-modular full face. But not much, and worth it for convenience and the good airflow in general.

Fits well
As I haven't worn this riding, as yet, I can only say that it fits well, and that I was amazed at the noise difference when I put it on. Hoping the on-road noise is as big a difference...

A great modular helmet
I use this helmet both for dual sport/adventure riding as well as touring. I like the way all the pads inside comes out for washing. It gets dusty when riding off pavement. I can take it out and wash it to get rid of dirt and smell. Plus that made it easy to install my Sena communication. There are nice plastic cut outs for the speakers. I've had to cut the liner on other helmets. The helmet is very comfortable and quiet. Modular helmets in the past have been noisy, but the Neotec is as quiet as any full face helmet I've owned. The sun shade works great. I like the fact that it leaves a small gap at the bottom to see my GPS and gauges. I have a hard time seeing the LCD displays when looking through a tinted visor. The ventilation is very good, yet doesn't make a lot of noise like others I have owned.

There are only a couple of things that I don't like about it. The shield is a little bit harder to get off and on compared to the other Shoei helmets I've owned and you can't open the bottom just a small amount to reduce fogging. On the other hand the shield seals better and there is better ventilation at the chin to keep fog off the shield. These are things I will probably just get use to. Other than that the helmet is really well made with great protection.

A Fine Helmet
As soon as I tried the newly arrived helmet on, I was reminded of buying an RF200 from a walk in bike gear store 20 years ago. The salesman insisted that the snug fit was right and it would become comfortable with use. 20 years later that is still true. Trust Shoei's sizing chart and you'll be fine. The helmet feels light and comfortably snug, it is very quiet when all closed up, and vision is very good to the sides. There are a few very minor nits. The straps are sufficiently buried in the bucket that, while they are easy to grasp, there is no room for the hands once the helmet is going on, and it can require some digging to grab the straps when removing the helmet. This reduces the spread available so I wind up having to wiggle the helmet around to scootch my ears into place. But, at least I haven't had to mess with my glasses to don the helmet. Removing the helmet must also be done with care, or it can snag your glasses and flip them to the ground. A really minor nit is that the pin lock studs are right at the periphery of vision on the faceplate and look like little drops of water. I'm getting used to them but it's a distraction. But, these are minor quibbles. 20 years ago I thought that RF200 was the nicest helmet I'd worn. Today I'll say that about the modular.

Just may be the perfect helmet
I've used a Shoei modular helmet for over 20 years; so I thought it was time to upgrade. Bought a Nolan N104; bad idea! BAD idea.
The N104 is noisy, leaks air, large shell.
Although I don't like the price, the Neotec XXL may be the perfect helmet. Great air flow & fit, plush washable interior & D-ring strap, no air leaks, very quiet, stylish. I like the single release button & single hinge for the pin shield/chin bar. The smaller shell fits in my side case & the D-rings can be used to secure the Neotec to the bike.
Don't try to go cheap like I did (cost me $90).
Buy a Neotec the first time, you won't regret it.

New Neotec is great helmet
I switched from an old Shoei to this new Neotec. I was using it during slow riding in cool weather and rain and the combination of the pin lock fog-free lens and convenient tilt face shield, no fogging was encountered. The cheek pads kind of push in your cheeks a bit but that means it is snug and therefore quiet and won't move around. It's the bee's knees for helmets.

Quality at a good price
This is my second Shoei since my trusted old Syncrotec of 6 years ago. I'm glad I picked one size larger since it is a tighter fit than the old helmet. I recommend you try one first before ordering. I love the sun shade addition and fog free visor. This makes the helmet wearable all day any weather. I do find it a bit warm though. Opening of the vents definately increases wind noise. This is a compromise you have to make.
The quality of construction makes a big difference. I have an HJC as well. The HJC doesn't have the Shoei quality and fit. Even my 6 year old Shoei works better than the HJC which I now use for ATV use only.

Quality built helmet
My adult career has been in Quality Control & Quality Assurance (i.e. manufacturing). This helmet is superbly constructed. The interior materials are lush & the exterior is finished nicely. It's quiet...and doesn't fog if you use the face shield insert & attach the included breath guard...(and vent it properly if needed--of course). This helmet is very similar to Shoei's RF 1100 and adds more comfort in a modular design. If you can only purchase one helmet...buy this one!

finally a quiet helmet
I have severe tinnitus and wear glasses.I wore this helmet the night I got it.Couldn't believe how quiet it was and the ease of wearing glasses in them.I don't have to wear earplugs in them,except for being able to hear the exhaust now on my dr650 with FMF pipe.The hjc isbt I had was horrible in both areas.Couldn't here the exhaust with the hjc cause of wind noise in helmet.I'll have to put the spark arrestor back in now.My head is a round 23" ,this is a large.Fit is good,could be tighter on forehead,cheek pads are tight,I could have gotten buy with a medium,but would have to adress the cheek pad issue.Can't wait to add bluetooth.Is it worth [$],yes if u want to keep your hearing.Don't do like me,I bought two $200+ helmets that were worse than my $125 AFX ds 39 .(The AFX is a great bargin @ $125)There's $525 + shipping and hassle.Buy this or one of the other high end helmets.
