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 5 621 621
Definitely an upgrade to Multitec I had had my Multitec for 8 years, so when the Neotec Borealis went on sale, I finally gave in. I have a Shoei shaped head, so the fit is similar (discounting being slightly more snug due to new padding). Air flow is better; noise level is slightly better; love the drop down sun visor; still feels a bit heavy, but seems to be less affected by winds at higher speeds. (Parabellum Scout and low 10" screen on my BMW R1200R) Only real gripe is the often mentioned too tight cheek pads. I suppose I will have to relent and use the Zilla Bucks for the 31mm pads.

I really like the looks of Borealis 2nd neotec, fit and finish even better, size med was right on February 2, 2016
Excellent helmet Haven't had the helmet for long, 2 weeks or so, and to be honest I'm just getting back into riding motorcycleso after 30 years but based on my experience with it so far my biggest concern is risk of having it get stolen. February 9, 2016
More Quiet than my RF-1100! I recently decided to no longer ride with my chin exposed and ready to meet the pavement, which is a very difficult decision when riding in the summer months in Florida. I decided to try the NeoTec helmet thinking that i can flip it up during slow speed riding or while stopped. I am used to riding with my RF-1100 and love the fit, build and low noise it provides. The NeoTec is as comfortable and even quieter than the RF! In fact, it's very comfortable along the neck line where most helmets rub on the back of the neck. The NeoTec seems to be cut a little different there. It also provides lots of chin room and the built in sun-visor actually drops low enough to provide useful coverage. This will be my last helmet for a long time. February 3, 2016
Good Quality This is the first modular helmet I've owned and it took a little getting used to. It fits snug, and after breaking it in it's still a little weird putting it on. Once on it's comfortable. Ventilation is good. It's a lot quieter than anything before it, and at speed my head doesn't buffet around. That's probably the best thing about it. At 70 or 80 I can see the mirrors. Hesitant at first about spending that much for a helmet I'm glad I did. Tom VTX1800 February 2, 2016
As expected from Shoei.... and Revzilla! Replacing a Multitec that I have had for 5+ years. This is my third Shoei modular as I started with a Syncrotec. Coming from the extra large Multitec, the Neotec felt pretty snug. The cheek pads are a lot snugger. I ordered a 2X in hopes that some of that "snugness" would go away. The 2X was a little looser. Sat in the living room on two separate occasions swapping all three helmets trying settle on the XL, 2X or look for other options. The only difference I see between the two sizes are the liner and cheek pad sizes. The cheek pads and liner on my Multitec have visibly compressed over the years so I settled on the XL. Replacement cheek pads and liner are available in other sizes if I change my mind after some miles. The "Brilliant" yellow is much brighter the the Multitec which is closer to school bus yellow. I do a couple of SS1000 mile rides a year and one summer trip in which typically has riding conditions which hit all extremes. Bikes vary from Valkyrie to Vstrom. Multitec served me very well. I expect the Neotec will be just that much better with the pin lock and sun shield. Thanks Revzilla! 10 star customer service and best website ever!!! January 31, 2016
Excellent Helmet This is by far the nicest helmet i have owned. It is light, and comfortable. It is very quiet compared to the scorpion that it replaced. It also goes through the air nicely. The vents actually work and get air to your head. The pinlock system is awesome and i have had no fogging problems. I have worn the lid at 18F and had no fogging and my head was warm.

Too Windy Lots of positives, but the negative of having wind in my face with all vents closed AND installation of both the breath guard & chin guard over powers them. Appears to be a leak in the chin vent ? Additionally, the chin vent when opened directs the air so close to the visor (which is unnecessary as it comes with a pinlock visor) it wont even defog your glasses. January 26, 2016
