One new kid on the modular block has earned a lot of fans over the past year, and for good reason. The Shoei Neotec offers an array of new features and improved design elements, making it a solid improvement on the popular Shoei Multitec.
The rigorously engineered Neotec shell incorporates modular innovations that were developed through wind tunnel testing and hours of road tests by professional riders. The new aerodynamic shape cuts down on noise, drag, and the overall size of the helmet, and increases the airflow and venting capabilities. Still, the Neotec weighs in at a very light 3.92 pounds for the medium size. This means the Neotec is one of the lightest and quietest high-end modular helmets on the market.
The Neotec comes stock with a Pinlock anti-fog visor system, and Shoei has redeveloped the easily changed visor to be wider and taller than its predecessor, increasing the rider’s field of view. Shoei has included a QSV-1 built in flip-down sun visor that sits inside a panel behind the main visor. This allows quick relief from glaring sun, but also allows the helmet to retain its compact size without sacrificing shell integrity.
The Neotec introduces the next level of modular performance from Shoei, and feedback suggests it hasn’t disappointed.
