The Shoei Neotec: a new Helmet Contender

The new Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet is expected to be one of the most versatile flip-up helmets for 2012.  Modular helmets have skyrocketed in popularity as a broadening number of riders seek more versatility from their lids. Shoei took what made the Multitec a huge hit, made some improvements, and designed a new helmet contender.

When fully closed the Neotec resembles a full face helmet by bearing a chin bar for absorbing face impacts.  The chin bar can be pivoted upwards allowing riders to eat or drink without unfastening the chinstrap or taking off the helmet. If you are looking for a hybrid between a full face and an open face helmet for street use, this is the way to go!

Key features of the Neotec include:

  • Flip-up chin bar & face shield
  • Noise-reduction design
  • Stainless steel components within pivot locking system
  • 3 Shell sizes
  • XS-XXL sizing
  • Internal sun shield (QSV-1)
  • New CNS-1 shield (wider and taller than the previous CX-1V shield)
  • Pinlock anti-fog shield & lens system (included)
  • Fully removable 3D interior liner
  • Interchangeable cheekpads to customize comfort & fit
  • Channeled dual-layer EPS liner enhances ventilation
  • Features EPS liner in chin bar
  • Breath guard and chin curtain (included)

On top of all the impressive features listed above, the Neotec comes with plenty of new upgrades and refinements over its predecessor, the Multitec:


Shell
As expected from a Shoei helmet, the Neotec is lightweight but has an extremely durable outer shell.  Shoei used its own shell structure: the Advanced Integrated Matrix (A.I.M). A balanced combination of rigid and pliant layers gives the wearer noteworthy safety performance by using strong fiberglass layers with organic fibers.  The Neotec is also DOT certified so, it meets strict safety standards that is expected from motorcycle helmets.

Interior and Fit
The interior fit has been redesigned in the Shoei Neotec Helmet, which allows for fine adjustments and easy maintenance.   Different fabrics are used in the interior to maximize comfort and breath-ability.  With the help of polyurethane foam layers, wearers receive a snug fit while staying comfortable throughout their ride.  Also, removing the interior parts for cleaning is made easier with the removable top center pad.

Ventilation
Shoei’s Dual-Layer EPS Liner is designed for maximum airflow by pulling warm air up and out of the interior as well as dispersing air evenly throughout the helmet.  Vents in the Neotec can be controlled with a three-position shutter which allows the rider to make easy adjustments, even with gloves on!

Conclusion
The Neotec Modular Helmet is perfect in every detail, as it ushers in the future of helmet technology with the type of quality that only Shoei is known for.

“Arai RX-Q Graphic Helmet. I must admit I was hesitant about spending this much $ on a helmet, but it is worth every penny. As a female rider, I was looking for a well-built, lighter weight, full face helmet. Many I have tried seemed too heavy. This Arai fits the bill and the peripheral vision with Arai is outstanding. I tell fellow riders, no more excuses for not wearing a helmet. You get what you pay for. Being a safe rider is priceless. Spend the money, get this awesome helmet, you’ll wonder why you waited. Thanks Helmet City for the great prompt service” – Jackie Z. 07.13.2010

“Awesome helmet — best ever. What a great combination of fit, sound attenuation, and light-weightedness….Love it…Also, best for peripheral vision as well compared to 3 other helmets I’ve had…” – Ron B. 07.09.2010

“Upgrade from Arai Quantum 2. Super light and Increased Vision! Vents keep the noggin very comfortable. 30-40% less noise inside the helmet while on highway. Cushions around the ears and cheeks are very snug but soft and comfortable. Pretty stable at high speeds when you lift up from a tuck. Well worth the price.” – B.H. 07.13.2010

    Arai XD-3 Luster - Orange

    The Arai XD-3 Luster includes the following features:

    XD means “Crossover Design” because it crosses over into so many riding styles. You can quickly and easily change it for adventure touring, dual-sport, Supermoto competition, commuting, whatever. Visually, it looks like a dirt helmet, with its peak, protruding chin bar and the opening for goggles. But the XD Series also has a full faceshield like a street helmet, a faceshield that easily slides up under the peak. And you can remove the shield and/or the peak in no time, and then easily re-install either or both whenever you like. The XD Series. Uniquely functional. Uniquely Arai. And now, when others are introducing their first XD “copies,” Arai is already taking you to the next level with the brand new XD3.

    • High-flow peak channels air directly into the front vents
    • Twin-cam Shield Pivot System allows the face shield to operate fully under a peak that can be lowered for better aerodynamics. Can be configured with shield and peak, peal only (for use with goggles) or shield only
    • Fully Removable/Replaceable and washable liner with optional sizes available for custom fit
    • 4 top vents. Dual Intake/Dual Exhaust Ventilation-dual I/C top intake vents and Double Delta bridged exhaust bents designed to draw significant volumes of air from helmet interior
    • CLC (Complex Laminate Construction) shell-fiberglass composite is stronger and lighter-allows use of softer, less-dense liner materials inside for increased rider comfort
    • Efficient chinbar vent (with Interior and exterior controls) flows fresh air to the mouth area or across the shield interior to help prevent fogging
    • Large chinbar side exhaust vents draw out additional hot air
    • Meets or exceeds Snell and DOT standards
    • The peak/visor supplied is not suitable for high-speed use where air striking a side or main surface of the peak may cause difficulty in returning the head to a forward and/or level position
