Shoei Neotec II Modular Helmet Set for Spring Arrival | Less Noise, More Comfort

Shoei Neotec II Modular Helmet First Look

Ultimate Motorcycling staff members have been fans of Shoei lids for years now, especially those built for the touring crowds such as the Neotec modular helmet.

Our Online Editor Ron Lieback used a Neotec during one of his solo cross-country trips in 2014, and for many trips afterwards. He easily amassed 50,000 miles with it, in pure comfort.

Shoei Neotec IIFor 2018, Shoei has revamped its top-tier touring helmet, releasing the Neotec II. Shoei says the lid, which arrives in America this spring, has evolved in multiple areas, including:

  • Noise reduction
  • Wind/water tight sealing
  • Aerodynamics
  • Face-cover functionality
  • Riding comfort

Shoei also created an Intercom-Ready Design that allows the Neotec II to seamlessly integrate with the specially developed, Sena-exclusive SRL communication system.

“An every-occasion helmet with the adaptability to excel no matter where your next journey takes you, the Neotec II does it all with style and precision,” according to a Shoei spokesan. “The convenient flip-up versatility of a true two-in-one helmet combined with next-level aerodynamics, an internal sun shield, the Pinlock Evo fog-resistant system, and the ability to seamlessly integrate with the all-new Sena SRL Communication System, the Neotec II is the pinnacle of modular helmet design for today’s hybrid motorcyclists.”

Prices for the Shoei Neotec II begin at $699 MSRP in solid colors. For additional information, visit the Shoei Neotec II page.
