Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet comes to America

by Jeff on January 6, 2012

The New Shoei Neotec Helmet has just been released in the U.S. As with all modular helmets the Neotec will be a DOT certified helmet and come with some great upgrades over the multitec. Considering the the upgrades we expect the Shoei Neotec to come in slightly above the multitec in pricing. We will have a complete Shoei Neotec Helmet review to be coming soon and we will do an in-depth comparison of the Shoei Neotec vs. Shoei Multitec once we have them in our hands. The Neotec will not be a replacement for the Multitec, just another option along side it.

 

 

 

 

 

Features include:

  • New Internal Sun visor with no sacrifice in safety
  • 270% improved ventilation compared to the Multitec
  • 100% stainless steel Micro Ratched System ( replaces d-ring )
  • Stainless steel components within pivot locking system
  • AIM 5-ply shock absorbent fiber shell
  • Multi-Density EPS liner
  • New Fully Removable interior ( multitec is not )
  • New optimized vent design to increase noise-reduction
  • Smart Flip Chin bar, that shuts flush and is easy opening
  • New CNS-1 Shield is wider and taller than previous shield
  • 3 different size shells
  • 3 D comfort liner provides a better fit vs. the multitec
  • Ear pads to reduce the internal noise
  • Includes a breath guard and a chin curtain

Tried on the Neotec at the Vancouver Inernational Motorcycle Show yesterday and it had standard D Rings, not the Micro Ratchet.

Same here – tried on one two weeks ago and it had D-Rings. Loved it and plan to buy regardless.
