Customer Reviews for Shoei Neotec - Gloss Wine Red
Because its worth it...
Being a spectacles wearer I've owned all sorts of helmets in the past. Its a real faff feeding your specs into the opening of a full face every time and open faced helmets are draughty, noisy and very few are suitable for Pinlock so you then have to suffer with fogging. I'd been looking at a modular helmet for some time and read the review of this one. Yes its not cheap, but its a Shoei. This means reliability, quality and durability. From the second I put it on I was in love with it. The fit is exactly as advertised, a little tight feeling to start with until it beds in but the most secure feeling I've ever felt in a helmet. There is very little noise, all the parts work well and best of all, with some dexterity I can put it on and take it off with my specs still on!! The included sun visor works very well and doesn't catch on my specs. The ventilation system look brilliant although as its November I haven't tried it out yet! As ever, I got a great deal from Sportsbikeshop and the helmet arrived the day after I ordered it. Worth every penny!Read more
The helmet is, of course, fantastic. Well designed. Impressively the delivery was very quick and notifications were clear. Highly recommend using Sportsbikeshop.Read more
Just what I expected from Shoei
Delivery spot on. My first full face. Nice and quiet and no steaming up!Read more
This lid is a revelation. I have never had a flip up before, so this is a new experience for me. It is light, quiet and streamlined, so the design is great. Even better, is the visor system. With the Pinlock visor included, fogging up is a distant memory. Also, the flip down sun visor is brilliant. The flip up/down is the best though, so easy and convenient to use. Recommend one of these I do.Read more
This is a great helmet. I'd read all the reviews and I was impressed with the feedback. It felt a bit tight to begin with and I fitted an Interphone F5MC Shoei Specific Bluetooth intercom, it has now settled down. The pinlock system is brilliant too. I started to wear earplugs with the helmet and intercom but took them out as it was quieter than what I was used to. Would I buy again? Yes. Great experience, great quality and a great service from Sportsbikeshop. Thank you.Read more
Top quality helmet
The helmet is top quality, I cannot find anything negative to say about it. It's the best flip helmet I looked at, first class design and the build is also first class. I would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone. Paul.Read more
I had been thinking about buying this helmet for some time, now I have bought it I am not disappointed. The usual high standard of quality and comfort that has become synonymous with the Shoei name has been surpassed. This is the best Shoei helmet I have bought to date. A massive thanks to Sportsbikeshop for the speedy delivery and exceptional service. I can't recommend both this helmet and Sportsbikeshop highly enough. Thank you.Read more
Excellent helmet, better than expected.
Comfortable, light and very quiet. Ratchet system works well on chin strap. Chin guard very effective. Integral dark visor brilliant.Read more

After listening to their wide user base for the Multitec, already a benchmark helmet, Shoei have developed the Neotec. High on the wish list was an integral sun visor to cope with varying light conditions, but how to include a sun visor without compromising safety? Shoei came up with the unique solution of creating additional space within the shell so as not to compromise the shock absorbing liner. In addition, the anti-fog anti-scratch inner visor is injection moulded resulting in practically non visible distortion while 99% of UV-light is filtered. The double-D retention system of the Multitec is replaced by a micro ratchet quick release system made from stainless steel for increased durability and reliability. Comfort is enhanced by the now fully removable and washable interior and much improved ventilation - 276% improvement in performance over the Multitec - and reduced overall weight thanks to the 5-ply composite shell construction. All in all, the Neotec maintains Shoei's reputation as manufacturer of the flip up helmet for the discerning biker.

With over 50 years experience, they continue to manufacture the entire Shoei helmet range in Japan to this very day. Whilst the brand can undoubtedly be described as premium, Shoei helmets offer fantastic value for money when you consider the serious levels of comfort, build quality and technology that go into every helmet they produce. Shoei develop all of their bike helmets with a specific philosophy in mind which they call the Shoei Safety Concept. The thinking behind their philosophy is that crash helmets must be developed to ensure maximum head protection, whilst also providing unrivalled levels of comfort. Ultimately, Shoei believe that a relaxed ride provided through comfort makes a highly important contribution to the rider's safety. The safety elements of each bike helmet come under one of two headings, Passive or Active Safety.
