“It offers the riding comfort of an integral sun visor without the overall safety being weakened by a compromised shell density. This has been achieved by placing a shell on the outside of the helmet surface, while keeping the same thickness of Shoei’s proven inner lining, a staple of the company’s helmet range.”
Other features of the Neotec include a replaceable anti-fog and scratch-coated visor, which is claimed to block 99 per cent of UV rays; a stainless steel micro-ratchet system; vortex generators for improved ventilation and airflow, and additional space inside the shell, as well as a 3-D detachable and washable centre pad and ear pads designed to reduce wind noise.
For the fashion conscious ABR, the Neotec is available in six finish and colour options, including a special ‘wine red’, and sizes XS-M, L, and XL-XXL. Keep your eyes open for a full review of the Shoei Neotec in a forthcoming issue of Adventure Bike Rider magazine. For more information, click here.
