It has been about 20 degrees since Christmas so I have not been able to wear this item out yet. However, I can already tell that this is a good quality helmet. Fits a bit snug but I know that will loosen up over time.
Shoei Neotec LE Motor Modular Helmet.
On a regular basis, we motorcyclists wrestle with varying riding conditions: sunny, cloudy, cool, warm, freeway cruising, stop-and-go traffic and much more. That's why the flip-up versatility of a helmet such as the SHOEI Neotec can prove so valuable. Its modular functionality offers the convenience and versatility of a full-face helmet that converts seamlessly into an open-face configuration for a true two-in-one design. The premium-quality Neotec also offers superior shell aerodynamics, a handy internal sun shield, Pinlock® EVO fog-resistant system, and a fully removable, washable and replaceable liner; it's the next level of modular helmet design. Neotec features include SHOEI's exclusive Multi-Ply Matrix AIM shell and Dual-Layer EPS liner for rider protection and it's also equipped with a fully removable, washable, adjustable, and replaceable interior system that's been enhanced for a comfortable fit and maximum helmet stabilization during high-speed riding.
The SHOEI NEOTEC is a premium modular helmet that touts the SHOEI badge and wears it well. This helmet brings SHOEI’s quality and design to the world of modular, adventure touring style helmets. Building on the success and “backbone” of MULTITEC, the NEOTEC introduces a few new features such as an internal sun shield, wider and taller field of vision, and refined aerodynamics to reduce lift and drag on those long adventure touring trips which can cause fatigue. Also if you are the kind of rider that likes to get out on the open road and truly experience the outdoors or if you are the kind of rider that likes to take a break, but doesn’t want to take your helmet off to grab a drink or take in the world around you but still wants the protection of a full faced helmet, The SHOEI NEOTEC is the helmet for you.

Shoei Neotec Helmet Sizing
Wrap a tape measure horizontally around your forehead. Select the helmet that is the closest fit to that size. A helmet should fit snug on your head. If it moves while wearing, it is too large. If it is painful to wear, it is too small.

Light weight helmet and fits well. Very comfortable around the neck area. My face doesn't get cold and I ride all year long. I love that the padding is replaceable in case it wears out and the helmet gets too loose
Great helmet and comfortable. I wish it was lighter and the cheek pads are too big for my face.
I love my Shoei helmet. It was a great price and it fit great. I really liked the convertible face lift. This is truly an outstanding helmet. I purchased one for my wife as well. I would certainly purchase another from Jafrum.
This is my second shoei helmet and I am very much impressed with the quality construction of the helmet. A very quite helmet and the airflow is very great inside the helmet while riding. The price is high but it is really worth it. The chin pads are snugg, closing mechanasim is easy and smooth and the helmet is light weighted for a modular helmet.
We Love this helmet. It is very comfortable and we can ride for hours and it doesnâ€™t give you a headache. Had issues with the face-shield fogging up though
This helmet is a wonderful fit. It fit a little snug when I first purchased it as it should have and now fits perfect. Also well ventilated and all of the working parts are precise. The only suggestion that I would make is to offer a wide array of internal shield colors other than clear.
I love this helmet. When I am on the road, itâ€™s just me and my bike and I like it that way. Ventilation is good and no wind noise so I can really enjoy my ride. My only complaint would be that I purchased the smallest cheek pad separately and the helmet is still a little snug.
Chin piece is a bit tight but overall a good helmet. Once I get the pinlock tearoffs for my shield then I can experience the antifogging. Gets very cold where I live so pinlock is definitely needed.
Peripheral vision is excellent. Helmet has good ventilation once you open up the vents for airflow. Overall, good to wear in all seasons and doesnâ€™t get too hot in the summer
This is my first full face helment. I have worn Shoei 3/4 helment for past three years and was pleased. A little concerned about size but the helment fit great right out of the box. Everthing about this helment is great. So many feautures you just need to watch the online video review for all the details. The cheek pads are a little tight but should break in after some use or I could purchase small size pads. Don't worry about the price. You will be highly pleased plus your head is worth alot more. I ordered on a Monday morning and the product was at my front door the next afternoon.
I saw this helmet first time when my friend bought it from Jarum. He was happy with this company and super happy with the helmet. I was a bit hesistant to buy this because of the price. But man, I am so happy I bought it. It is wonderful, quieter, lighter and so comfortable while riding than any other helmet I have owned so far. Thank you Jafrum for the speedy delivery and great service. I can't wait to get my $100 back with the buck back program you have!
