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.

Reviews & Questions
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.
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.
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.
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!).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
over 2 years ago
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.
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.

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.
Couldn't find it here.
