                  Description

                  Shoei Neotec II Helmet

                  The Shoei Neotec 2 helmet finds ways to improve upon an already exceptional modular touring helmet. Exhaust outlets complement the upper air intake vents for improved air flow. Wind tunnel testing optimized the Neotec 2's aerodynamics to perform in a variety of riding positions. The integrated shell spoiler is repositioned to better reduce lift and drag at speed, while the Aero Deflector along the chin bar adds stability. A micro ratchet chin strap makes securing the helmet and removing the helmet quick and easy. Noise Isolator cheek pads improve the seal along the neck opening of the helmet to keep turbulent air out. The 360 Pivot Locking System secures the chin bar in the down locked position and a multi-piece EPS liner made out of varying densities of foam absorbs impact energy. The Shoei Neotec 2 is designed to integrate with the Sena SRL Communication System for a clean and low profile installation. All of these features combine to produce one of the ultimate long distance touring helmets.

                  Aerodynamic Shell Design

                  • Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing
                  • Dual-layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation
                  • Four shell sizes and five liners present increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes from XS through XXL
                  • Shoei’s exclusive, state-of-the-art shell forming technology incorporates the aerodynamic advantages of a spoiler right into the shell of the Neotec 2
                  • Vortex Generator on the face cover and visor works to reduce noise and manage air flow around the helmet

                  Flip-Up Face Cover and Face Shield

                  • 360º Pivot Locking System made of high quality stainless steel components, ensures a safe and secure closure
                  • Enlarged single-button release for chin bar and shield allows ease of use with riding gloves
                  • Increased space inside the chin bar was added by adjusting the shape to create a smart and light design
                  • Opening the face cover up will automatically close the face shield

                  Sun Shield System

                  • Built-in QSV-1 inner sun shield gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion
                  • Meets ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyeglasses
                  • Large and easy to reach slide switch activates the 3D injection-molded inner sun shield
                  • Distortion-free shield blocks 99% of harmful UV rays
                  • Forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield. This allows the integrity of the helmet’s inner EPS liner to remain intact.

                  Ventilation System

                  • Shoei's wind tunnels helped to reveal the optimal balance between airflow and silence
                  • Large lower vent shutter for ease of use with riding gloves optimizes air flow while in the riding position
                  • All-new exhaust outlets flank adjustable upper air intake for improved hot-air expulsion

                  Micro Ratchet Chin Strap

                  • 100% stainless steel interlocking mechanism
                  • Quick and smooth closure and release
                  • Comfortable and easily adjustable

                  Noise Reduction

                  • All-new Noise Isolator cheek pads deflect wind and reduce unwanted noise
                  • New airtight window bead and the chin bar’s Vortex Generator lip reduce noise and manage airflow around the helmet
                  • Enhanced shell shape improves noise control and aerodynamics

                  3D Interior Liner System

                  • Entire interior liner (cheek pads, upper liner, and chin strap covers) is easily removed for cleaning or replacement
                  • Each component of the inner liner is ergonomically designed to offer the ultimate in safety, fit, and comfort
                  • Comfortable, 3D helmet liner material quickly dissipates moisture
                  • Eyeglass compatible interior is optimized for many different sizes of eyeglasses, while still minimizing gaps that can cause excess interior noise

                  CNS-3 Shield and Base Plate System

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just love it! This is my fourth helmet so far and this is the best of all. To help you make your decision, I was riding a Shoei RF-1200 and RF-1000 (not mentioning the first one) previously and so far this is the best I got. During summer until late in fall I commute to work everyday and I've already put ~2000 km on it and can really appreciate it. You cannot do track with this helmet (not Snell certified) and it isn't the purpose. It is a great helmet to do long distance riding. It is roomier than RF-1200/1000 at the chin which help preventing fog in prescription glasses. Pin-lock is excellent in day time since it really make a huge difference when temperature drop and humidity in the air is high. The downside of pin-lock is the halow you get at night which can be annoying but it has nothing to do specifically with this helmet but more a general comment. The built-in tinted visor works perfectly and it is a great feature since you don't need to worry about carrying sunglasses with you which can be an assel some time. By far this is the quietest helmet I owned but like for any other helmet, a.s.a you open vent the noise level increase considerably but still quieter than other helmets I've owned. Operating the helmet to open/close either visor or the chin bar is extremely smooth. I don't ride with the chin bar open but I really enjoy having it open when I'm doing low speed maneuvers or stop at the gas station. The vision is excellent and not surprised since this is a Shoei. The only thing that bother me a bit when I initially star using the helmet is how soft are all mechanisms (chin bar, visor, vents...) on it. A bit too soft for me and it is likely because this is not an helmel that you'll bring on track but in cold weather and with big gloves it has its advantages.

                  Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awful interior finish & noisy! Coming from AGV products, I expected a lot more from this helmet, but after riding it for one year and can only say the price doesn't justify the quality of the helmet. I constantly have to readjust the interior pads as they come of from the clippings. Integration of the sena is then really bad and to top it off, its way to noisy to even make it work correctly. This is my first and last shoei product for sure. Too bad, as I was really looking forward to this purchase!

Great fit and easy to wear...cant say its the quietest iv worn though.as for the srl itself....there is a problem with sena web site...you cant properly download the device manager to do firmware updates and the android app once installed keeps reverting back telling you to up date firmware on srl unit and phone app...which to this date sena hasnt come up with a fix....numerous contacts with customer support and still no fix....only bought this lid because of the srl system...hindsite says i should have gone with another brand lid and bluetooth system...

                  Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bon casque mais vaut pas le prix! not worth the $ Casque confortable, je l'ai acheté car le vendeur m'avait dit que Shoei faisait les casques les plus silencieux mais finalement par mieux que mon autre casque (Scorpion EXO), très déçu d'avoir dépensé autant d'argent, finalement la meilleure façon de réduire le bruit avec un casque de moto est de se mettre des bouchons dans les oreilles. un autre défaut aussi est le manque de ventilation sur la vitre intérieure, même avec les entrer d'aires ouvertes ça bue il faut ouvrière la vitre pour réduire la buer.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't know any better but it's great Before this I only had cheap helmets for riding my scooter. I recently upgraded to a Triumph T100 so I needed an upgrade. My brother told me Shoei's were the best so I grabbed this one and I'm not disappointed! Very quiet and I love the modular feature. This is my first modular helmet.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. No love is perfect. Pros: beautiful quality, all orifice controls operable with oven mitts including the chinguard release button. The ratchet is great, don't understand all the whining I read in the press. But you can't operate it with oven mitts. Smells like a proper new helmet, my Quantum II smelled like vomit when new. Includes an anti-fog screen that ACTUALLY WORKS 100%! Comfy for my weird head. Modular = airflow just how you want it, great when stuck in traffic at 30'C. Love it. Cons: a little heavy from the whole modular thing I guess, a little noisier than hoped for b/c same reason I guess (former Shoeis were RF 700 and 900, quieter). Sunshade lever is not super natural to operate, at least not yet. But I love it anyway.

                  Questions

                  Is this helmet still best for intermediate oval or does it fit long oval. I bought the last generation only to return it because the top of my long oval head hurt after 30min. I settled for an LS2 that delivered a perfect fit but super noisy. 

                  Asked by: TechRider
                  The Neotec 2 is suited for Intermediate Oval head shapes.

                  Asked by: Jim S
                  The communication device kit that would be the best fir for this helmet would be the Sena SRL Bluetooth Communication System for Shoei Neotec II, our item # 616644.

                  Is the size and head shape comparable to Shoei RF1000 and RF1200.

                  Asked by: Nickgiver
                  It fits the same as other Shoei helmets I've owned, both in shape and size, but my last RF was the 900.

                  Asked by: Adventure Traveller
                  It can. I've done it. Is it the ideal setup? Probably not but for me it's perfect.
