Shoei Neotec Borealis Modular Helmet

The Neotec Borealis graphic offers a high-vis option to the Neotec lineup.  Building upon the success of their previous modular helmets, the Shoei Neotec Helmet was designed with long distance and ADV touring in mind. The innovative tri-composite shell has been designed to provide riders with a smooth and quiet ride while reducing, lift, weight and increasing overall safety. The shell of the Neotec has also been designed to house the internal drop-down sun visor, eliminating the need to reduce the thickness of the EPS liner and potentially compromise safety.

An integrated face shield shield and chinbar pivot point reduces the number of moving parts, mitigates wind noise and enables riders to close both the chinbar and face shield in the same motion. Shoei’s stainless steel 360° Pivot Locking System secures the chinbar when it is in the closed position and the dual-layer EPS liner provides enhance impact absorption and is channeled to facilitate ventilation.

From the shell to EPS to the 3D formed comfort liner, the Shoei Neotec is purpose built to provide unrivaled rider comfort and safety. Perfect for nearly any type of ride and rider, the Neotec is the ultimate in touring performance.

Shoei Neotec Borealis Helmet 4.7 5 646 646
Well...I want to be straight. I am actually reviewing before I even bought one... ha! I had the Multitec... I loved it.. great helmet. I got sold into the silence factor and all the hype on the Schuberth C3 pro. I sold my Multi and bought the C3 pro. I found I like the shoei better. I just sold my Schuberth on ebay and now going to buy the replacement for the Multi, the Neotec. It looks to be improved with removable liner and internal shades.... I miss my old shoei and believe this next one will be just as cherished.... never leaving this helmet again. March 27, 2016
Great features and protection Fits tighter around the face than my RF-1100 did, but will probably break in over time. I love the features and the weight of the helmet for a modular. Worth the extra money over lesser brands with similar features. March 15, 2016
Shoei among the best You can't go wrong with a Shoei ! Just getting back into riding and had a Shoei many years ago. Still great helmets with MANY more features these days. The internal drop down sunvisor is awesome, no need for sunglasses. I understand Why Snell won't rate Modular helmets but I believe its As Good as a Snell rated helmet. March 9, 2016
Nice but.... I have had a Shoei RF1200 forever. It was the only FF helmet that would fit right. Perfect right out of the box. When it was time for a new helmet I wanted to get a modular and so Shoei was my go to. I ordered the same size as my last one but it is tighter at the forehead. I assumed that they would be the same. I think it will work but I need to do some break in on it. I don't think moving up a full size would work so..... The pinlock visor is worth the price of admission! I ride all year round in he Pacific NW and I had to have my visor cracked on my RF1200 90% of the mornings I rode. No more! You can't fog this bad boy. Genius! Whoever came up with that should take the rest of the month off. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is the price. I don't see why it is 5x as much as the low end stuff. Ya, ya I get that it has better materials and design but 5 times better? It is made out of unicorn hair or something? April 19, 2016
Great helmet This is by far the best Shoei helmet 've owned. My prevoius helmets were the X-11 and the RF1100. Good helmets for sport bikes but they were not comfortable for my Concours 14. The Neotec is clearly designed for more upright position and seem quieter than the other two, even though is a modular. April 19, 2016
Worth the investment. Bought this to replace a modular Harley helmet I got 2 years ago and there is no comparison between the two. I did a lot of research and watched many videos (mainly on Rez's site) on all the top makes and decided on the Shoei Neotech after trying on all of the models I was interested in in the store. The salespeople at Rez were very knowledgeable and patient making sure my purchase was right for me...very impressed. As for the helmet I've only used it on a couple 1 hour rides so far both on and off the highway. The venting is a huge improvement over what I had even with the Road King windshield in front of me and the noise level has dropped dramatically. I read where many riders had to change the cheek pads to a thinner version, but I had no problem. Also no hot spots in the forehead area...the padding is very plush. Definitely on the pricey side, but feel much safer and more comfortable than before. Bought the Sena SMH5 Bluetooth along with this for when "The General" rides with me like our upcoming trip to Laconia. I'm no high tech wizard so felt a little intimidated about installing it in the helmets, but had no problems...took less than an hour to do both. I'm not one for a lot of bells and whistles so opted for this less expensive unit. Very easy to use and decent sound quality though we're mainly using it for the intercom and GPS voice features.

The best modular I've owned! Bang for Buck - given 4 because it IS expensive, but I got what I paid for, no doubt Comfort - given 4 because it's on the snug side; my head measure 57.5 cm, which is dead center of medium. I think with time it will break in, but snug does make for quiet Protection & Durability - given 4 because it's too new to measure durability, and I hope to never have to review the protection factor This is an amazing helmet. I almost bought a C3 Pro, but went with the Neotec for sizing, and I'm confident I made the right decision. It's quiet, snug, and secure feeling. The shield and the sun visor both are nearly optically perfect. This is my second pin lock system, and it's effective, though it does distort vision just a little. Very happy with this helmet!

Good choice for a flip-face helmet Shoei has changed the shape slightly, and I noticed it after wearing it for a while. I'm more of a 'roundhead', this helmet is a little less so than the previous model, the Multi-tec. This helmet, unlike the Multi-tec I had previously, was starting to give me a slight headache after about an hour riding. But, after wearing it about 4 days straight, all day, the helmet began to fit better, so you might want to keep that in mind when trying this helmet on. I have some problem with the faceshield. It is 'stiff', more difficult to put on (Shoei changed the shield model) and take off, and when fully in place, requires some effort to open it just a little to vent. In rain, I found the helmet faceshield did leak a little bit from the top, but not significantly. The helmet is not as quiet as the Quest model, so ear plugs are highly recommended. Overall, though a little expensive, it's a good choice for a helmet. April 5, 2016
