Verified Customer Reviews for Shoei Neotec 2
Arrived very quickly, fit was perfect best helmet I've owned, very quiet and extremely comfortable
From selection to payment to delivery "SportsBikeShop" pass all superlatives.
The Shoei Neotec 2 flip faced helmet ticks all the boxes. Excellent fit, excellent sound proofing, excellent vision. Oops forgot the excellent price.. so all in all I simply love my new helmet and the service I've received from SportsBikeShop.
Previously had Neotec 1. Needed a new flip-up and with the 3rd version just released there were large discounts on the Neotec 2. It fits really well, the flip mechanism is secure, visor seal is perfect. Noise is not a problem. Fitted my Cardo Bluetooth easily. One small gripe, the first partly open visor position is about 25mm, not great when you need it open for a little extra ventilation, especially if it's raining. Fantastic helmet at the reduced price. Sportsbikeshop excellent as usual.
Quality feel as soon as you put it on. Integral Sun visor works fine and a useful bonus. Nice to get the pin lock included. Perfect fit but then I have had Shoeis for years. Very quiet compared to other helmets. Maybe slightly heavier. Always double check the lock of the front. Would prefer D ring fastening but it's not a big deal.
Like the ratchet chin strap, excellent fit straight out of the box.
Good fit, but appalling design meams it steams up, even with pin lock! You have to open the visor, BUT the smallest opening is Too big which allows water to run down inside the visor wetting the face and spoiling a clear view. I cannot believe how this basic design fault was allowed. Pretty much useless when it's raining. Big disappointment for a top line helmet.
Because I travel 80 miles to my nearest store, I had done a pre order of a couple of different brands of helmet to make sure I had my options available.
None of the options were cheap helmets, and all were very similar price.
I left the Neotec 2 until last to try. Once it went on, it was clear that it was night & day in comparison, and because it was discounted in store by around 40% it was a no brainer.
On the bike, it is as quiet as you can expect for a flip front. The fittings feel right. The ventilation is very effective & easy to work, as is the sun visor, along with the main opening button. The only improvement I would make compared to my previous flip fronts would be to put a tape/ribbon on the fastener for slightly easier opening.
Great service from sportsbikeshop with their pre order method, and team members kept checking back in with me during my store visit. Top marks guys. Great helmet & great service.
A great helmet at a great price. Well packaged and fast delivery. A great company to deal with
I'd been after a Neotec 2 for some time so when the prices dropped after the 3 was released I jumped it. The colour is lovely, it doesn't come through in the photos but it's a nice deep glossy grey with a metallic shimmer. It definitely looks premium and feels premium and it is pretty comfortable. Airflow through the vents is pretty good, but it does still get quite warm in there with all the padding.
If you're buying for the quietness, my experience is that it's nowhere near as quiet as I expected it to be considering that's what everyone raves about - I can't really tell any difference from my old HJC flip from if I'm being honest, not that this bothers me much as I nearly always wear earplugs anyway, but something to consider.
Overall I'm pretty happy with it, but I'm also pretty happy I didn't pay full price for it. It's good, but definitely not worth 5 times more than my last one.
The helmet is excellent. I had an issue with the visor which was sent to Shoei to be looked at, with it leaking and would not stay open. I sent the helmet via sporstbikeshop, which resulted in the visor coming back in worse condition than it went. Scratched to hell and really dirty. The visor was replaced with a new one following a complaint, however I found it hard work to get a report on what had been changed or found on my helmet, with no detail on how it got so damaged either. I did also request a new pin lock as that was also dirty and was told by sportsbikeshop to just clean it and put it in the new visor!! Which I found poor service after the fact I have been without a helmet for nearly 5 weeks in august and the damage sustained! This has made me question the after service both sportsbikeshop and also Shoei on such an expensive product. I will now shop around when looking for products rather then using my local sportsbikeshop.
Very comfortable helmet, the flip up front mean I can put it on while wearing my glasses. Removing and refitting the visor for cleaning is a bit fiddly but will get easier with practice, it also comes with a pinlock insert.
Bought this to replace a Full Face Helmet and it has proven to be a great choice. Appreciate being able to deal with short stops without the need to remove helmet. It's comfortable for all day use and relatively quiet. 2 minor observations. Would appreciate a smaller first stop when opening visor. And noticed slightly increased fogging from my previous helmet AGV. But all in all a great purchase for my requirements
I bought the Neotec 2 to replace my current Neotec 2 as it's an excellent helmet. Great features, protection and style. The real bonus was the ability to buy at an incredible discount from Sportsbikeshop who's service is second to none. Recommended on all counts.
Very snug but comfortable, my Neotec 2 replaced and old GT Air. With the front down you can't tell it's not a full-face helmet as it gives you the same amount of cover from the elements. Even though I bought it a day before the Neotec 3 appeared on the market, I'm happy with my purchase
Excellent helmet at sale price
Quick well packaged delivery
I'm on a very wet trip from the Uk to western Ireland it's performing very well particularly with the pin lock insert in horrible conditions
It's quiet with the visor fully closed
After many decades of full face helmets, I saw two friends wearing these on a Harley tour this summer. Although I'm more Honda than HD, I thought the Shoei Neotec looked like the perfect touring helmet. Full face when you're in our somewhat, er, temperate climes, but easy to open at a pit stop on a hot European tour. Perfect. I've had Shoei helmets for decades as they seem to fit me best, and this is the best of the lot. Comfortable out of the box and looks sharp. Job done. Except to say that the Sportsbikeshop folk were lovely and very helpful when I went to try helmets on. A big thumbs up to Shoei and the Sportsbikeshop.
Very nice helmet. Comfortable fit. Good quality. Reduces wind noise, which is what you need to protect hearing.
I previously had an HJC C90 flip up which was a good helmet but the Shoei is on another level. Quite a bit more expensive but it shows. Comfortable, quiet and plenty of ventilation and easy to wear on long rides. It came with a pinlock which is a bonus. I also bought the Sena integrated intercom system.

Questions and Answers
Is the built-in sun visor road legal? Great helmet from great supplier by the way.March 29, 2023
Yes, the built-in sun visor is road legal.
Will sena 30k fit well in this helmet?April 17, 2019
This helmet is designed to use the SRL-01 Sena system, and due to the shape of the helmet at the bottom it would be very awkward to mount a universal system. The unit would need to be mounted so far back on the helmet, that the microphone lead would not be long enough.
Hi, Can you tell me please if the SENA SMH5-Fm headset will fit into this Helmet, thanks. FrankSeptember 25, 2018
We would think not, as the shape of the base of the Neotec 2 and the internal sun visor switch will interfere with the mounting of a universal intercom.
