This Shoei Neotec helmet is sure to attract the attention of all connoisseurs of quality products. It is also suitable for both professional riders and beginners. Made of high-strength fiberglass, it not only provides additional protection but also pleases with its attractive appearance.
However, the selling feature of this helmet is that it contains an anti-fog mirror Pinlock and a visor with additional protection against ultraviolet light. In this Shoei Neotec II review, I will tell you how this helmet differs from other motorcycle helmets in its price range.
Outer shell and design
The main visor of the helmet is made of a reinforced plastic and glass alloy, made in Japan, with a Pinlock anti-fog mirror. The helmet’s inner lining is removable and washable and has an antibacterial coating with built-in noise isolators. The helmet itself belongs to a full-face type.
To proceed, the helmet under review weighs 5.4 pounds and measures15.5 x 11.5 x 12.5 inches. However, it is also available in sizes from XS to XXL. For your choice, it also comes in a range of colors, including black, white, gray, metallic, wine red, deep gray, blue metallic, matte black, as well as other custom colors.
The Shoei Neotec 2 modular helmet is regarded as one of the best modulators in the world, so it is not surprising that it meets all safety standards for integral helmets. It also has an AIM shell and a double-padded EPS r lining that can partially absorb shocks. What’s more, this helmet has a 360-degree steel anti-twist system.
The helmet’s inner lining is removable and washable and has an antibacterial coating with built-in noise isolators, which provides comfort at high speeds. In addition, unlike the older models, this helmet is fitted with a dual-density polystyrene foam liner. Thanks to that, it can better absorb the energy of shock, thereby enhancing the rider’s safety.
Speaking of the fastening method, the Shoei Neotec II helmet has a steel ratchet lock with a double D-ring and a removable chin guard. Honestly, I prefer it that way since it does not dangle around awkwardly, unlike some other cheaply made helmets.
The Shoei Neotec II helmet has an anti-fog Pinlock visor.
The inner visor, in turn, features additional protection against ultraviolet radiation. All of this adds to the strengths of the model.
The ventilation system has been tested by blowing in a wind tunnel to reduce chin and back noise. When air enters the helmet directly through the chin guard and vents, warm air passes through the rear-type opening. As a result, the air circulation in the Shoei Neotec II helmet has been improved as well. With the air ducts located in the forehead and on the chin and two hot air channels located at the back of the head, you are guaranteed to feel comfy and pleasantly cool.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, the removable helmet lining in this model has been dramatically improved. That’s mainly due to the addition of the “noise isolator,” which aids in improving the acoustic effect. Thin goggles and a strap that goes right to the chin further help reduce unnecessary airflow into the helmet (thereby reducing noise).
It is also remarkable that the Shoei Neotec II helmet is compatible with Bluetooth headsets t (sold separately).
To sum up, the Shoei Neotec II helmet is suitable for both professional motorcyclists and beginners. It will surely come to be liked by all those users who value quality and reliability. On top of that, this helmet provides enhanced safety while also offering you a nice combo of stylish appearance and technology. The included anti-fog lenses add up to the vital points.
Indeed, this helmet is not cheap, but if you’re looking for the best product, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better helmet than this.
