With the popularity of sport and adventure touring at an all-time high, the advancement of the incredibly versatile modular helmet segment was a must for Shoei engineers. Though still a respected part of the 2012 helmet lineup, the Multitec's modular design was used as a backbone, analyzed with scrupulous eyes, and tweaked ever so slightly to yield the most progressive flip-up helmet on the market today - the all-new Neotec. Boasting improved shell aerodynamics, a wider and taller field of vision, a reduction in wind noise, an internal sun shield, and a fully removable, washable and replaceable liner system, the Neotec is the next level of modular helmet design for today's hybrid motorcyclists.
Flip-up chin bar and face shield: Utilizes an enlarged lock release button. Its lightweight chin bar and face shield rotate with smooth precision on a single axis point, yielding the seamless versatility of a true two-in-one design.
Internal sun shield: Built-in QSV-1 sun shield that gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion. A large, easily located switch activates the 3D injection-molded inner shield, and the distortion-free view blocks 99% of the sun's damaging UV rays just like the CNS-1 external shield that lies ahead. Unique to the Neotec, the forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, allowing for the integrity of the helmet's inner EPS liner to remain intact. The QSV-1 sun shield exceeds the ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyewear.
CNS-1 Shield & QR-N base plate: CNS-1 protects from 99% of the sun's damaging UV rays, and Shoei's 3D injection-molding process ensures a distortion-free view throughout the entire field of vision. Coupled with the Neotec-exclusive QR-N base plate system, shield changes and base plate function have never been smoother.
Pinlock(r) Anti-Fog System: Pinlock(r) Fog-Resistant System, offers the most effective anti-fog protection in existence. A simple, one-step installation process makes every Pinlock(r) lens easy to install.
360deg Pivot Locking System: Road tested and made of high quality stainless steel components to ensure a safe and secure closure when the Neotec's chin bar is in the down, locked position.
Shell-integrated spoiler: Shoei's exclusive, state-of-the-art shell forming technology incorporates the aerodynamic advantages of a spoiler right into the shell of the new Neotec. Maintaining a consistent shell thickness to guarantee proper strength and weight, the Neotec's shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding, yielding a stable, less fatiguing ride.
Noise reduction design: Neotec owners will enjoy a reduction of wind noise without blocking the road's "informative sounds." A dual-ridge window bead and the chin bar's "Vortex Generator" lip also work together to reduce noise and manage airflow around the helmet.
Ventilation performance: Shoei engineers equipped the all-new Neotec with a large lower vent shutter for ease of use with riding gloves, a strategically-placed, three position upper vent for optimal air intake, and uniquely-positioned upper exhaust outlet vents to take better advantage of negative pressure suction - all yielding dramatically-improved cool-air intake and hot-air expulsion.
Fully removable interior system: The Neotec is equipped with a fully removable, washable, and replaceable interior system. The 3D center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider's head, allowing for an extremely comfortable fit while maintaining the firm hold necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding. The Neotec's multi-layer cheek pads are available in different thicknesses for a customizable fit.
Dual-layer EPS liner: Provides enhanced impact absorption by utilizing varying densities of foam. It is also designed to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS, further enhancing the Neotec's unmatched ventilation characteristics.
3 shell sizes: Shoei offers an industry-leading three shell sizes in the new Neotec to ensure a custom fit for heads between the sizes of XS - XXL.
Chin curtain: Can be inserted into the lower edge of the chin bar to reduce wind turbulence and noise.
Breath guard: Can be inserted into the upper edge of the chin bar to help reduce fogging by diverted exhausted breath down out the bottom of the helmet.
Warranty: 5-year warranty from purchase date. 7-year warranty from helmet manufacture date, whichever comes first.
