Shoei Neotec 2
« on: July 09, 2018, 03:25:30 am »
I was in Cycle Gear to get some push pins for my fairing and couldn't resist trying on a Neotec 2. I think this may have been a bad idea as I now have to have one. I found this helmet so comfortable if I get one I may just throw my pillow away and sleep in the helmet LOL
I don't care how expensive it is this will be my next lid :)

I have been resisting dropping the  dough on one since they came out. Have had  several Shoei lids over the years and never disappointed. My wife has the original Syncrotech model and it is still an excellent lid. Trying a Scorpion GT920 tomorrow but if it does not tick every box  I am going with the Shoei.

I was amazed at how well the Neotec fit with my glasses and I am not kidding my head was more comfortable with it on,  It was like burying your head in the cleavage of a perfect bosom ;)

Just go buy it. I bought a new one recently and find it to be the perfect lid for sport touring type riding. Its not terrific in regards to wind noise but ear plugs work just the same in this helmet as they do in any other.  You won't be disappointed.

I've had a neotec for a couple years now and (for the most part) love it.

Pros- the face shield / smoked slider / anti-fog insert is great for 24hr any condition riding, road noise is a lot lighter than my HJC full-face.

Cons- I DON'T like the shoei catch/pivot mechs. for the face shield...they should take a lesson from HJC. :-[

I tried on the Neotec 2 helmet, and it is the first Shoei helmet that felt good on my head.  Although pricey, a good helmet can make long rides a whole lot more enjoyable.  I currently have a Sena 20S that is only a couple years old, so not interested in buying the unit that fits in the helmet.

So I assume, based on the helmet, you would have to use adhesive tape to mount the 20S to the helmet.   Has anyone mounted an outside the helmet unit to the Neotec?
