[mageProductLink sku="375-0116-0105-03"]Shoei NEOTEC II
Helmet[/mageProductLink]. This modular motorcycle helmet is
replacing the ever-popular Shoei Neotec modular helmet and is
coming to market with significant advancements and upgrades to its
predecessor. With this new helmet we are experiencing a similar
"massive jump in technology" that we saw when the Neotec replaced
the Multitec back in 2011. In short, the NEOTECH II from Shoei
features improvements in nearly every aspect of its design and
Weighing in at just 3.92 lbs or 1780 grams (medium, matte blue, p/n: 375-0116-0132-05, MSRP: $699.00) the NEOTEC II features four different shell sizes and five different comfort liner sizes that make up the size run of XS through XXL. This combination of shell sizes and comfort liners will allow users to truly get a custom fit with the smallest and lightest exterior shell possible.
Not only did the shell size change, the shape has been optimized and enhanced through extensive wind tunnel testing. This testing brought forth improvements for the integrated rear spoiler, Vortex Generator lip on the face cover and airtight window bead, all of which assist in managing airflow around the helmet while reducing wind noise. Noise management was additionally improved with the all-new "Noise Isolator" cheek pads which deflect wind helping to reduce unwanted noise.
The extensive time spent wind tunnel testing on this motorcycle helmet also allowed Shoei to look closely at how the air was being channeled through the helmet. This new NEOTEC II now features a more productive dual-layer EPS liner, a larger lower vent shutter increasing air flow and an all-new exhaust outlet flank with adjustable upper air intake. All of these improvements have made for a more voluminous intake of air with improved hot-air expulsion.
Other areas of improvement for the NEOTEC II are the stainless steel Micro Ratchet Chin Strap, enlarged single-button chin bar release, distortion-free 3D injection-molded dropdown sun shield, a new eyeglass compatible interior, a fully removable, and washable 3D comfort liner. The NEOTEC II also features an intercom-ready design to integrate seamlessly with the Sena SRL communication system.
If you are in the market for a modular helmet this year, the Shoei Neotec II will not disappoint. Offered in six sizes with nine different colors this helmet will be a real head turner.
