Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet

The Shoei Neotec Helmet was designed for today's riders. The chinbar can be closed in one easy motion and the cheek pads are eyeglass friendly. The versatility of a 2-in-1 helmet combined with an aerodynamic shell, internal sun shield, Pinlock-prepared face shield, and a removable and washable interior make the Neotec the go-to helmet for selective motorcyclists.

Face Shield Features:

  • Easily operable lever mechanism
  • Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99% UV blocking
  • Pinlock-ready CNS-1 face shield
  • Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces
  • Includes Pinlock insert lens
  • 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view

Ventilation and Aerodynamics:

  • Vortex generator vents 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

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
  • Double D-ring closure

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

Very nice.
I rode with an entry level Shoei full face helmet and really **wanted** a nice modular helmet. As I am much older now, I figured I would extend myself and buy something top notch. While looking around, I struggled with the variety of options available on the market today. This lead to reading several reviews for modulars from different manufacturers.

I ultimately ended up with the Shoei Neotec for a few key reasons. For me, I found myself gravitating to another Shoei. The previous Shoei served me well and I had confidence in the fit and quality that Shoei would provide. Basically, I was having a difficult time spending a chunk of dough on another manufacturer with comparable features.

For features, I really dig the internal retractable sun visor. The pinlock lens visor is new to me and seems to work well. Internal helmet padding was eyeglass friendly also. I didn't feel the frames pressing against my temples and still have a very snug fit. As we are into the cooler weather, I cannot provide a complete opinion on venting at this time. I can say when the vents are open, I definitely feel air flowing good from the chin/visor and top vents.

The modular aspect of this helmet is nice. I find it convenient to continue a conversation when saddling up or speaking to my fellow riding buddies when stopped. With the helmet closed and riding at speed, I tend to believe it is quieter than my previous helmet. This may be attributed to the snug fit.

I also really like that this helmet is Bluetooth friendly. Having recessed spaces for the speakers is nice. For you gear veterans, realize that this new feature is new to me. On the other hand, I have a Sena 20S and found that I needed to be sure the unit was mounted forward enough to where the pop up antenna would not interfere with the internal visor control.

On the gripe side, I would have liked the face shield to have the option of a small open position for venting. The first detent when opening is more than I prefer. Lastly, the cost was a big pill to swallow. To get past some buyers remorse, I fall back to my comments about having confidence in a manufacturer's reputation of building a quality helmet without compromising on safety.

Great Helmet
I use this helmet everyday for commuting, weekends for pleasure riding, and plan on using it for longer trips as well.

When I wear this helmet on my unfaired Dyna, it's very quiet. On my fully faired Road Glide, it's annoyingly loud and the buffeting is noticeable. I'll need to play with windshield heights and shapes, but for now that sucks since I put far more miles on the Road Glide.

As others have noted, this helmet is expensive. Is it the best I've owned? Absolutely, but I still believe you're paying a premium for the Shoei name. When I was shopping for a modular helmet, once I put the Neotec on my noggin, I knew that's what I would end up with, no matter the price.

The Neotec is really comfortable, visibilty is very good, as is the ventilation. It still gets warm in there in stop and go traffic, but that's not unique to the Neotec.

I'm happy and satisfied with the Neotec in every way except for the pain caused to my bank account. I'd still buy it if given another chance.

Excellent, Almost
4200 miles in and finding it very comfortable even on "Iron butt" trips.
PROs: Field of view; my previous modular (Fulmer) was restrictive of my viewing angle over the shoulder. The Neotec is comparatively 'wide-open" allowing me to quickly see BEHIND me not only beside.
The build quality is a major selling point for me, coming from the arena of mass-market lids, this thing just feels 'solid' in so many ways. With my other helmets I always raise the face shield with a bit of concern as I have had a hinge or latch break on several occasions (usually the Fulmer) and shields that fly away. The shields on the cheap helmets feel like they will crease if I'm not careful. The shield on this Neo feels like you could pick ME up by it. Not floppy or flimsy and the hinge seems rock-solid.
The shield has a PinLoc insert which prevents fogging. This is a masterful invention which I welcome as I ALWAYS have had fogging issues even in the summer; even with 3/4 lids(!). There are detents to hold the shield partially open.
There is a built-in hideaway sun shield. The utility of this can hardly be overstated. Bright sun/shady spot/bright sun/tunnel- etc. Sun shield down, up, back down as needed, instantly while wearing prescription glasses.
The sun shield is also effectively dark, not just barely tinted as was another I had tried.
The shield has a watertight rubber seal, a huge plus.
The fact that it is "modular" or "flip face" is a requirement of mine.

Comfort. Not much to add about the importance of this. It is very comfortable for me with no pressure points, however, it does get pretty hot. I'll take it off and at that point I realize how much I've been sweating in it.

Cons: The vents are NOISY! As long as the top front vent is closed, this is the quietest modular helmet I have worn...but open the top vent and the noise is annoying.
The latches on the chin bar don't look the part. They may well be as strong as a vault, but they don't LOOK substantial...especially given the price class.
I have trouble with the closure of the chin bar. It works aces when it is not on my head; When worn, (and due to my fat cheeks) sometimes it will refuse to latch once or twice. To its credit, it never partially latches. It is either solidly locked or not at all.
No SNELL listing. Why not? Has Shoei not offered up the Neotec for testing? Why Not? There are now at least 2 (two) Modular helmets that ARE SNELL listed including M2010!
Still no effective QD strap mechanism.
Price. Good Grief!

What a helmet should be!
I just got a Neotec to replace my old Bilt Blaze full face as the older helmet couldnt fit a communication system. While the Blaze worked well for its cost, it doesnt even come close to the quality of the Shoei. For being a modular lid, it is remarkably quiet and solid. Feels quite secure and is much less suceptable to wind buffeting. The integrated sun visor is very very nice to have and drops down well out of your line of sight as well as being easy to operate when you need it. The venthilation of this helmet is remarkable. Riding at freeway speeds it felt like someone aimed a blowdrier at my scalp minus the heat. I couldnt be more happy with this purchase!

Neotec Review
This helmet is fantastic! I replaced my old Shoei with this and I have no regrets. I ride year round in the northwest and the pin-lock system alone justifies the purchase. I can wear it on cold, damp mornings with absolutely crystal clear vision. As a premium helmet it might not be great for a casual rider(you are paying for that level of protection and convenience), but then again your head isn't going to know it was a casual ride if it gets bounced off the pavement in a lesser helmet so... I am confident if you purchase this you will be very happy with it!

After 3 years of ownership rock solid
Needed/Wanted a well-vented modular for year around riding. Does well in 30 degree and 100 degree plus temperatures. Have owned for over three years now and would buy again. Not sure about fogging issues with rest of the reviewers, but fogging is at a minimum, just crack your visor. Pricey, but you get what you pay for. Advice: Please do not buy without trying on for fit/sizing elsewhere. Helmets should be replaced every 5-6 years, If you do the math, this equals 12 bucks/month, which should keep it in perspective. Converted full face modular rider. Love a full face helmet as well so don't get it twisted, but for the type of riding I do modular all the way.

Best helmet I have owned
Fit and comfort are excellent. Very comfortable to wear.
Although ventilation is good, it's not as good as I had hoped for.
Flip up sun visor is awesome.
Well worth the investment.
