Verified Customer Reviews for Shoei Neotec 3

43 reviews
Our customers say…
Customers generally consider the Neotec 3 a significant but not revolutionary upgrade over the Neotec 2. They appreciate its high build quality, comfort, quietness, and improved sun visor. Some note minor design issues with vents and the chin strap. The helmet fits well, accommodates glasses easily, and offers good wind noise reduction. It's considered expensive yet worth the price, especially with discounts. Overall, it’s praised for its excellent performance, quality, and features suited for modular helmet users.

New Lid
18 July 2024 by Adam
Amazing helmet great fit.

Great riding experience

Great price.
Brilliant customer service at the shop. Helmet so
16 July 2024 by Clive P
The helmet is okay but not brilliant which is disappointing given that it costs the best part of £600.
The visor removal and refitting mechanism is fiddly and annoying and because pet hair found its way in between the pinlock and visor which meant removing and cleaning it several times, it got scratched so I had to spend another £110 to replace it. The scratch / pet hair is my fault (top tip - don't fit a pinlock insert in a house with pets) but the removal and fitting mechanism made things worse by causing frustration.
The shop staff were fantastic though. Proper old school customer service - knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

Comfortable and quiet
12 July 2024 by Chris R
So far this quite expensive, helmet has been very comfortable and is much quieter, with better quality, than my previous x lite flip front.
Simply Shoei Quality
10 July 2024 by Alan
I replaced my Neotec 2 with a Neotec 3 after the old one was damaged by a piece of metal thrown by a car. I bought the adapter kit for the SRL Mesh rather than spending even more money. SBS fitted everything in 24 hours and shipped it next day back to me.

Superb helmet, looks and feels like real quality as usual. Comfortable immediately and no problems at all with the new visor unlock tab.

Big plus for me is the improved chin and head ventilation and it does seem quieter although that might be because my old one was getting a bit tired after a couple of years.
Shoei dooby do
10 July 2024 by Michael
First time owner of a shoei lid, size and comfort are superb. I was hesitant at first because of the options for fitting other intercoms, I needn't have worried as i easily fitted a cardo freecom x4 without any issues or having to trim or cut the liner.
Noise isn't an issue either as it's quieter than my previous full face helmets, and this helmet doesn't feel heavy.
Everything about this helmet oozes quality.

Snug, comfortable, great ventilation. Much improved on the Neotec 2.

Thoroughly recommended
Premium quality lid
30 June 2024 by Nige
Been using Shoei GT-Air lids for about 11 years because they just seem fit my head shape nicely. I tried a bunch of other modular lids on the day of purchase but still the Shoei fitted line a pair of comfortable slippers straight out of the box. After first use I noted how much quieter this lid is than the GTAir it replaced, Mainly I think because the aperture for your head (once the flip front is closed) fits a lot more snug around your neck which prevents wind noise. Cooling is excellent from the top vent, it's like having a jet of cool air aimed at your noggin. The visor is top quality, perfect even. The sun visor is very good but doesn't have the clarity (as in optical quality) as the main visor or a good pair of sunglasses. I didn't notice the weight of the lid at all, and it was quite windy out. No neck fatigue whatsoever. Also the first time using a lid without double D ring strap, but the ratchet works well and feels secure. You can easily lengthen the strap to allow for a few more 'clicks'. The only negative is the price!
A good fit
22 June 2024 by James
This helmet fits perfectly, let's put the noise issue away, it's not the quietest, it's on par with my AGV tourmodular. The opening system is easy to use even with gloves on. I can fit my glasses on with this helmet. I love the graphics
How much is your brain worth?
29 May 2024 by Anonymous
I had a Neotec 1. It had issues, lack of ventilation , a visor that could not be adjusted to stay slightly open and rain penetration. I skipped the Neotec 2. Sportsbike let me try 10 flip front helmets. I was pretty determined not to buy the Neotec 3, but did. I have ridden over 10 hours with it now. It's very expensive but the quality is evident. All the issues have been fixed very well. It's comfortable, can be taken apart to clean or install comes easily. The ventilation is now excellent and it does not leak. The visor stays open in several positions. It is quiet but that is subjective and depends on your screen (exhaust note!?) and quality of ear plugs. Really pleased with the purchase. On this occasion I believe you get what you pay for. I want to keep my brain as safe as I can .
Shoei neotec 3
25 May 2024 by Paul B
Best helmet I have ever purchased. So quiet and comfortable. Expensive but worth every penny. Had a Schuberth before this and the Shoei is so much better in every way.
Best Helmet
20 May 2024 by Scott M
Had the Neotec 1 for a few years, so I needed a replacement. So I chose this model after reading all the reviews I could find. I have to say they are right, this is the most comfortable, best fitting helmet I have ever tried. May not be the lightest, but you don't feel it when you have got it on. Very quiet when the visor is fully down, feels like you have got double glazing!
The staff in Birmingham are very helpful, cannot recommend them highly enough.
Seriously if you are looking for a flip lid, at the very least check this helmet out.
Great helmet
11 May 2024 by Chris B
Good upgrade from Neotec 2
Fits well tried the AGV but found Shoei fits me better
It great you can change the cheek pads for free to get a better fit at time of purchase.
If you buy the dedicated Senna intercom at the same time you save the VAT ( it is expensive but I have found it worth it ) Pity the Neotec 2 intercom does not fit.
I found the weight is good and the noise level is low even on a naked bike (although I do wear ear plugs)
I do find the the chin vent is not as easy to use as the Neotec2 but is very efficient
Overall great helmet with good colour schemes Whit or Black saves you a £100 against patterns
I would recommend
Best helmet

Best helmet I have bought so far. Very quiet and comfortable.
It's that good I bought one for my wife.
Is the Neotec 3 better for me than Neotec 2
09 May 2024 by John H
Better in every way when compared to the 2, however the chin strap is rather short and not as good.
Build quality is first class, fit is excellent, ventilation is better and the noise level is much much better.
Overall a better helmet (allowing for the chin strap).
Shoei Neotec 3

Great looking helmet, quiet and comfortable. Visor release button and air vent a bit fiddly to operate with winter gloves on. Great service from SBS
Quality Helmet at a Price
24 April 2024 by Dave
Purchased to match new bike colour, replacing Neotec 2. It's a top quality helmet, although I feel it's a little overpriced. The sizing feels exactly the same as the previous models as I ordered the same size as the 2 and it fits perfectly as before.
I find the Neotec 3 no quieter than the 2 and the thinner strap on the new 3 slightly more fiddly to latch. It's a great, top of the range helmet, but at a price. Great delivery from SBS as always.
Great helmet!

Much better than my old Neotec 1
