What's this?

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet

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.

Ventilation and Aerodynamics:

  • Vortex generator vents pull air through helmet
  • 276% more airflow than Multitec
  • Added inlets and outlets
  • Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics

5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell:

  • 3 shell sizes
  • AIM Multi-Composite construction
  • Lightweight yet strong
  • Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding

Good Bye C3/SRC -- HELLOOOOO Neotec/Sena
Having owned both helmets I hope this review can help someone trying to decide between the two.

Both helmets are great quality (no disappointments here). The C3 is slightly lower profile in the shell, although the difference is negligible.

The ventilation in the Neotec is SIGNIFICANTLY greater.

Both helmets provide good field of vision both have good optics. However I find the C3 shield to be a bit "flimsy". It will not stay cracked open at anything over approx 35mph. The Neo stays open at 85mph. I have not ridden the Neo in torrential rain yet, but the top of the shield seems much more sealed. In hard rain I had as much rain on the inside of my C3 as the outside. VERY frustrating. No problems with fogging in either helmet (with pinlock installed) The sun shade in both helmets is very good. I think the C3's might go down slightly lower, but no complaints with the Neotec. The closing mechanism on the chin bar is much 'clearer' and easier with the Neo. The C3 requires 2 hands and can be hard to know if you got it latched. I miss the 'rachet' closure on the C3, the Neo has the d-rings.

I find that the Neo has more room in the ear area as well as the mouth area (more space for your headset. I'm using Sena SMH10 in the Neo, used SRC in the C3). I felt the microphone on my lips in the C3, I feel nothing with a little room to spare in the Neo. For anyone wondering about the SMH10 on the Neo, I am using the microphone kit that comes with it and find it sufficient. (Some people say you need a longer microphone boom) I think it works fine the way it comes.

Fitment...this is where (IMO) the key difference lies. The C3 was comfortable on less than 2hr rides, but more than 2 hrs left me with pressure points on the top of my head and behind my ears. It was uncomfortable enough that after 1 year I spent another $$$ to buy the Neotec. Instantly (without break in) I have ridden the Neo on a few full day rides. I had forgotten what it was like to ride all day without "thinking about my helmet". (I came from an X-11 before the C3).

Summary. My opinion is that one of these two helmets will fit your head shape, the other will not. For me it took more than 2 hrs to be able to tell. I think the C3 is more inclined to a round head shape, the Neo slightly oval. The quality and fitment is excellent on both helmets. If you are coming from a Shoei, I would recommend you stay with the Neotec. Otherwise, try both helmets if possible.

Fantastic Modular Helmet
I was looking for a new modular helmet and after putting in about 500 miles with this one, thought it was time for a review.

Fit
I found the fit true to size to just a touch on the small side. I have a head circumference of 56.7cm, this would appear to fall between the small and medium sizes. The small fit but was uncomfortably snug causing headache after a few minutes. The medium fit well, passed all the fit tests, much more comfortable. Many have complained about the cheek pads. Perhaps I have an oddly shaped face but they fit me appropriately. Proper fitting cheek pads should be snug and give you a bit of a chipmunk sensation.

Ventilation
My favorite part of this helmet. I have ridden in temperatures ranging from 50 degrees and raining to 85 and sunny. With warm weather open up the three vents and you actually get ventilation! Nice and cool. This is in contrast to my last helmet where the vents could either be open or closed but you never got any ventilation no matter what you did with them. Riding through the cold/rain I have kept the vents closed and my head stays nice and warm. If ventilation is a priority, give this helmet serious consideration.

Fogging
Noted some minimal fogging initially when riding through a rapid temperature change. After installing the pinlock and breath guard this is no longer an issue (now if I could just keep my side view mirrors screen from fogging!).

Visor
Great field of view. Much clearer than my previous helmet. The visor does have relatively firm detents and is a little fussy to change the visor out (say to install the pinlock). The flip down sun visor is fantastic. Drops down far enough to not have an annoying line across your visual field. No distortion. Mechanism is easy to operate with gloves on.

Modular component
In all honesty I wasn't certain how much use this would get but wanted to give it a try. I love being able to stop at a light and quickly raise the chin bar to cool off a bit, or be able to get a quick drink in or have a conversation while taking a quick stop touring. I always hated taking my helmet all the way off in the rain just to get a drink/snack. Your hair gets wet and if you put your helmet on the ground so does your neck roll. Highly recommend a modular helmet if you are in to touring.

Safety
This helmet score 4 stars by SHARP and carried a DOT certification. The chin bar stayed down 93% of the time in SHARP testing. If you are not familiar with SHARP they are a UK based agency that evaluates helmet safety by testing different impact zones and assigns a rating of 1-5 stars. 4 starts I pretty solid for a modular helmet.

If anyone is on the fence about giving this helmet a try in my opinion it is well worth the investment. Happy riding everyone.

This is a Great Helmet
I have been lusting after this helmet since it came on the market. The sun screen is way good, it is crystal clear and no more need to wear sun glasses. I find the main screen to be just as clear and has good detents so you can run it slightly open and get some air or closed and open the well functioning vents up top.The lining is plush and very comfortable. It was a bit tight at first but loosened up just enough. I was going to order the optional thinner cheek pads but didn't need them after putting in a couple of long days in it. I have four helmets on the shelf but they all seem cheap in comparison. I mounted the Sena with the optional separate boom mike, took about ten minutes and fit really well. Poked a bunch of holes in the ear cushions to get a little more transparency from the speakers and that worked out really well. The neck strap is well off of the throat area and doesn't bind. All in all, just what you should expect from an expensive lid!

First Class accommodations for my mellon.
I moved up from a 6 year old HJC AC-12 which was a good helmet but after 30K miles I learned that any shortcomings can become major nuisances if left unaddressed long enough. I can't really fault the HJC for not being ideal, I chose it primarily because the color matched my ride and not because I had any real requirements beyond the desire to have a full face helmet. I therefore got what I asked for. Now that I know better I understand that a lid needs to do more than just protect my grey matter, it should also be adaptable to the changing demands of the rider; in my case I'm a daily commuter.

The Neotec does exactly what I need *my* helmet to do. As a daily commuter, the modular design is a must. The ability to quickly and easily transition from full-face to open-face with a single gloved hand is fantastic. Simple tasks like taking a drink of soda from a can, getting a more air while in bumper to bumper traffic, or taking a picture at a scenic location is now possible.

As a commuter I travel during the day & night transitions, the built in sun visor is a welcome option. The fluid action is easily manipulated with a single gloved hand; I no longer have to pull over to remove or put on shades.

I outfitted my former HJC with a Bluetooth communicator that I had to slow down to hear. No such problems with the Neotec, not only can I hear music and my GPS, I can now hold a conversation and participate in meetings on the phone. As a side, the Neotec has recesses built in for communicator headset speakers; it was lost detail, something I did not include on my requirements but I’m glad Shoei did their homework as it’s a great inclusion.

There are other features and well thought out design elements like the Pinlock faceshield, the inclusion of the Pinlock insert, cheek cushions which do not impede wearing glasses or shades, the sun visor leaving glasses or the fact that this lid flows air *MUCH* better than my HJC. Shoei knocked this one out of the park, it even comes in a color that matches my bike; wine. The Neotec has exceeded my requirements and introduced me to a level of convenience and comfort I did not know existed.

beats the Schubert only for sizing
As the title says . I bought this because I tried on a Schubert and straight away had pains in my forehead. I consulted revzilla about this and learnt that it was the wrong shape for my massive swede. I bought the neotec and online without even knowing what the fit would be like but once again thanks revzilla. OK so we now know it fits lol so let's get down to the nitty gritty of it. First of all I live in the UAE where temperatures soar to 50 degree's plus in the summer ( thanks god its not here yet) . I am now riding in 30 degree plus heat and find this helmet just about tolerable. God knows what I will do come summertime. The ventilation is good but i still sweat in it. I know that the schubert is no better as i have friends who have one. Second. I ride a 2016 gsa and can honestly say I am getting deafend I know its partly to do with the screen which I am changing. 3 rd i find the locking mechanism for the front a bit dodgy. I can close it gently and it does not lock positively ,when i slam it hoorah . 4 th when I am cruising I would like the visor 1mm open to give me that extra air I need. Cruising at 60 mph. Altogether a fine product but without trying anything else because in the uae you really have no choice. Hope this helps

Great helmet!
I bought Neotecs for my wife and I as replacements for our aging Shoei RF-1000 helmets. We've been using them for about 3 months; I've logged a couple of thousand miles with mine on my Indian Roadmaster.

Accolades: The Neotec overall offers better comfort and visibility than the RF-1000. Ventilation is every bit as good as with the RF-1000; roof ventilation for the Neotec is actually better than with the RF-1000. The Neotec is also just as quiet as the RF-1000. This surprised me; I figured the full-face RF-1000 would be quieter. I attribute the quietness of the Neotec to the superior snugness of the neck roll. I love the sun visor on the Neotec; it's darker than the sun visor on my HJC IS-33, and pretty much eliminates the need for sunglasses.

Gripes (all minor): The chin vent on the Neotec does not work as well as the old-style chin vent on the RF-1000. I'm also much more likely to close it accidentally. The "city" position on the visor opens it wider than I like. (The RF-1000 has a better "city" position, IMHO.) I appreciate the fact that Shoei included cavities for headphone speakers, but they are too small and too far back in the helmet. They do not readily accommodate the speakers for my UCLEAR HBC200 system.

Overall, the Shoei Neotec is a great helmet. I *LOVE* being able to flip the helmet open at stoplights - that's a big deal for Houston summer weather. I'd recommend the Neotec to anybody.

incredible helmet
I've had this helmet for about three months and 3500 miles now. I commute in nw Arkansas so I get all weather and all four seasons. I've ridden in humid heat to cold rain so far. The Neotec has performed wonderfully. My Sena Bluetooth fit in fast and easy. Everything works smoothly and just the way it's supposed to. Its surprisingly quiet and light for a modular helmet. Drop down Sun visor makes for fast and easy day to night transition. Zero complaints. Highly recommend. Revzilla. Com ships extremely fast. Ordered Monday at 5pm with free shipping and got it Wednesday at 2pm. Shopping there first from here out.

Very Happy with the Neotech
I love flip-ups. My last helmet was a Nolan N90, and I was very happy with it, but it was getting a little old and showing its age. I figured I would just get a new Nolan N104, but as I was reading up on it, I noticed a few things I didn’t like, such as the spring-loaded sun visor.

I’d read a lot of reviews about the Neotech, but didn’t think I could justify the big difference in price, but finally made the leap.

And I am really happy I did, because I could not be more pleased with the Neotech. Yes – the higher cost is worth it.

Fit – I think the N90 and the Neotech fit similarly shaped heads. Both work for me, but with the bigger cheek pads of the Neotech, the fit is very snug yet without any hotspots for me, even after a long two-day 800 mile ride. I didn’t have to take advantage of Revzilla’s excellent return policy as I’ve done before.

I was truly surprised at how much quieter the Neotech is than my N90 – and I hadn’t thought the Nolan was particularly loud. Some folks had reviewed the N90 and said it was quieter than most flip-ups. But the Neotech is way quieter. By the way – some reviewers have said the noise level increased when the top vent is open – I haven’t noticed any difference myself.

But the biggest surprise is ventilation. I live in a very hot and humid area – deep south Texas. Even on a commute ride home, my helmet liner would be soaked wearing the Nolan. But, after a 6 ½ hour ride yesterday in very high temps and humidity, the Neotech liner was no more than damp. I can truly feel the difference when I open/close the top vent on the Neotech.

Sun visor – I had a small problem with the big nose notch on the N90, but the Neotech’s shield is a bit lower and well out of my line of vision. Depending on the sun position, I sometimes need to adjust the position of the sun shield so that my road vision goes through the shield, but vision to my instruments is not. I could not do that with the spring-loaded Nolan N104.

There is one thing I miss – the microlock adjustable quick release chin strap. I can fasten/unfasten the Nolan’s with gloves on, but can’t do that with the Shoei’s double d-ring system.

I recommend the Neotech very highly.

Best Shoei Helmet I ever had
My wife and I both upgraded from the Multitec model that was about 7 years old. This fits more snugly but is very comfortable. Much quieter than the Multitec. Airflow is great! The best part of the helmet is the sun visor. Easy and smooth to operate. I can now read my instrument cluster and GPS with no problems that I had wearing a dark smoke shield on the Multitec. Expensive, yes, but I feel a great upgrade and value!

Nicely made.....
I upgraded from my 5 year old Shoei Multitec and it is significantly improved. The most noticeable differences were;

Improved interior liner and fit.
Chin bar and visor operate smoother.
Pinlock anti fog insert included.
Retractable sun visor really works and eliminates the need to change visors or use sunglasses.
Top vent provides very noticeable airflow, better than any other helmet I've had.
Speaker pockets allowed very easy installation of my Sena SMH10r comm system.
The helmet is quieter than my Multitec, but not as much as I would have expected. Some of this is probably related to removing the chin curtain to clear the comm system mic boom.

Overall I'm quite happy with the purchase as is my wife who also received the same upgrade.

Tried all the modular helmets including the brand X C4 and Ithe Shoei seemed much better Shield wise (Gasket), and chin strap (I am use to the DD ring.
Lawrence C on Sep 6, 2017
This is my second Neotec helmet. I also bought my first Neotec from Revzilla. The helmet is well made and comfortable. The anti-fog shield liner, drop down sun shade, and sturdy locking system are welcomed additions. I would recommend this helmet and Revzilla to anyone looking for motorcycle accessories. George
George G on Sep 2, 2017
Sweet helmet. Wish it were mine - I got it for my husband. He initially didn't want a full-face, but one look at what happens if you don't have that kind of protection and agreed it was an absolute necessity. Shoei came highly recommended. Hope we never have to see how good it really is.
Terren B on Aug 31, 2017
Sent this back due to fitment.

One of my favorite modular helmets. Light, quiet and comfortable. I still wear ear pugs all the time regardless.

We have been looking for new Modulars to replace our Nolan modulars and liked the reviews of the Shoei Neotec. We use the Sena 20S communication and like the speaker nest in the Shoei
Jerry H on Aug 20, 2017
love the helmet. protects and is comfortable. outstanding ergonomics with flip up and pinlock visor to prevent fogging issue. good ventilation on very hot days.
Keith M on Aug 14, 2017
Wanted a more comfortable helmet for long rides. This Shoei is amazing. Comfort and quiet with no wind noise. I love this helmet. Plus, in hot weather, I can raise the front chin piece at stop lights or gas stops without having to remove my helmet.
GerryC on Aug 13, 2017
Tired of stopping and not feeling free from the plastic of the helmet. Want to be able also to have easy option for sunglasses.

Wanted modular helmet, and the neotec reviews are all very good. I have other Shoei models and they fit my head shape. Thus I know Shoei neotec is my best choice.

Based on reviews and Revzilla video review. Needed a second helmet, and have the Schuberth C3Pro, which I like. I'm intrigued by the features and the reviews of this helmet, so I wan to try it.

This will be my first helmet purchase and I chose Shoei because of all the great reviews and from guidance by avid riders. Shoei appears to be top of the line and with this modular system, it fits my needs.

Glasses go on and off with the chin guard flipped up. Standard Neotec didn't work for me with glasses.
Jon R on May 21, 2017
I've really liked my RF1000 and when it finally came time to replace it for commuting, I went back to Shoei first. I wanted an internal drop-down visor, and was originally looking at the GT Air, but it was too small! The Neotec however was a perfect fit. Despite the extra price, I really appreciate the modular helmet now.

What size cheek pads come in an XL Shoei Neotec?
Jack M on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 35. Look up replacement cheek pads for sizing
"99% UV blocking" - is that UVA & UVB blocking both?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2015
I tried on a Large in the store and it felt tight and uncomfortable even though my fitted hats are 7 3/8. The XL felt good but I havent pulled the trigger and was wondering if I should go L or XL?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can try different cheek pads to customize the fit a bit. In fact, that's the only difference in the L and XL, the cheek pads. Both utilize the same shell. So, I'd try that and see if you can't dial in a perfect fit. Also, the pads should wear in a bit, so they might not feel as tight down the road.
I am looking to add some speakers to my neotec. I tried to use the Apple ear buds that came with my iPod but when I put on my helmet on they pulled out. I gave up after many tries. If anyone has any info on some decent speakers to fit in the ear pockets of a neotec please let me know. I prefer the speakers but if anyone has had good luck wih a particular type of ear bud I would try that also. ?
Thanks,
Mark T in VT
Mark T on Jul 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have used 2 things with my Neotec:

1. Shure sound isolating headphones - they work great as ear plugs (which you should always wear especially with a modular helmet which lets much more wind noise in than a standard full face - and they stay put in your ears.

2. I use a Sena SMH10 BT system on my helmet, and the included speakers work great. I use some nice ear plugs, and can still use my headset and speakers just fine with them even at speed.
Trying to find some numbers regarding the weight of the NEOTEC
Couldn't find it here.
anyone?
thanks.
A shopper on Aug 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Motorcycle Consumer News just did a comparison of 7 modular helmets. The Neotec was 4 lbs .2 oz. Note that is point 2 oz not 2 oz.
Nolan 104 4 lbs. 3.5 oz
Schuberth C3 Pro 3 lbs. 15.1 oz
AGV Miglia 2 3 lbs. 13.9 oz
What is the difference between the modular neotec and the imminent neotec?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think its just the graphics.
Does it come with Bluetooth?
Glendale L on Nov 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. But the speaker holes work. I use SENA.
I have a Scala intercomm system, I think the G2 or G3. Will this fit the Neotec without having to use the doublesided tape to mount the transceiver? Do you know if this helmet will take the Harley Davidson CB intercomm headset?
Carroll B on Apr 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I use the Scala G3 on my Neotec with no problem. It mounts the same as on my standard helmet, behind the open area. I just have to be careful to move the boom mike out of the way when I bring down the front of the helmet. Love the helmet...and the Scala!
I own a Multitec helmet and considering replacing it with a Neotec.Is it reasonable to assume that if I order the same size Neotec that I use with the Multitec, that the fit will be similar?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Personally, I feel that the Neotec fits better than the Multitec. I owned a Multitec for three years, but it was always a bit round on my head. The Neotec feels less round, but you should be able to still order the same size you were used to in the Multitec.
Can I use my scala g9 with this helmt I'm sure I will need to use the boom mike?
Robert W on Feb 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have used the G9 on the helmet also. The only issue is as Kathleen says in being careful when bring down the face. I caught my mic in the face and sheared some insulation. The other issue was the scala had horrible wind noise while it was open. You can silence it but the mic would turn on periodically from other connected rider with their face mask open and blast your ears. Might be better with a bigger windscreen bike.
