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 our 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.

I bought the Nolan N-104 from Powersport Superstore thinking it would be a decent alternative. Boy was I wrong! The Shoei is far superior in every way; finish, comfort, ease of use, etc.

Great helmet for those on-the-go.

I had a Schuberth C3 for several years and I recently changed to the Shoei. In many ways its a superior helmet. Ventilation is exceptional and when helmet is above windshield level you can feel the flow of air. Shield (raising shield from closed position does require some effort) stays in place at various heights and does not drop with the wind. Free pinlock system works perfectly and you experience no fogging. Mounting an intercom system is easy (I use a Sena 20s) and it fitted perfectly on helmet. This is a very quite helmet with shield down with no noticeable wind noise and the lining wicks moisture away nicely. Only two things kept me from a 5 star rating: (1) it uses the D-ring system for chin strap and not the European ratchet system which is more difficult with gloves and (2) it does not offer different size cheek pads for fine tuning fit (There are only 2 size cheek pads with only 1 for normal size range and 1 for XXL). I find the cheek pads in my medium size helmet to fit snug. Otherwise this helmet is truly worth the purchase price.

Fits great

This is my first motorcycle and thus my first true dedicated motorcycle helmet. Therefore I do not have a reference point, but I figured that I only have 1 head so I might as well spend the extra bucks for a good helmet. I also wanted the visibility (yellow) and it also looks good. I tried them on at the motorcycle shop and then bought from Amazon.

Excellent quality helmet. Fits very well
{Motorbike safety helmets are common for both protection systems along with looking fashionable as you are operating ones bike. In addition, they just do not have to end up being pricey.

- Deciding on the ideal Motor bike Helmet: Find the motor bike head protection that matches your personal conditions best. Ones head protection should provide fantastic fit, protection, convenience, and also be fairly priced.

- Quite a few Factors to consider when deciding on your personal Motor bike Helmet

Sizing: For the very best safety, typically the dimension of one's head protection is certainly very important. Lots of people procure helmets that are a bit too large. A helmet ought to not enable your head to move very much, and also ought to really feel protected.

COMFORT: A helmet needs to genuinely feel secure without feeling too loose-fitting. A person should really be prepared to use your motor bike head protection for extensive amounts of time while not experiencing any sort of soreness.

COST: The greatest head protection is one which protects your brain from force and also one that may be purchased at a wise cost. A very good head protection doesn't need to end up being highly-priced.

TRYING YOUR HELMET: Headgear styles change so it is best to check out just before you acquire. If you order ones motorbike helmet online, try it on the minute it's provided, should the size is not correct; just exchange it for the actual right size. Assuming the return back policy permit returns.

RIDING SUITABILITY: Make sure your personal head protection satisfies your personal cycling style. No matter whether you ride off-road, enjoy recreations driving, or perhaps drive on normal roadways and roads, ensure to decide on the right motorcycle helmet to suit ones

Motorbike helmets are of 5 types and so are secured towards the rider's head using a chin strap. The objective of using them in addition to their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap just isn't secured.

Full Face Motorcycle Helmet: The entire face helmet covers the entire head around the skull base and is among the most protective of all the helmets. It features a swiveling cutout band, termed as a visor, created from transparent plastic throughout the front in the eyes and nose. Some helmets include vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and deficiency of wind. Full-face helmets which are popular for motocross or off-road rides do not sometimes possess a face shield nevertheless the visor and chin portions are extended. A helmet with less coverage is less safe.

Off-Road/Motocross Motorcycle Helmets: Mototcross/Off-road Motorcycle helmets have extended visor and chin portions. The lack of a face shield permits the rider to wear goggles and allow more airflow that's needed is during strenuous off-road rides. The visor protects the rider's eyes from flying debris and keeps the sun's rays's glare off of the rider's eyes during jumps.

Though off-road helmets did not have a chin bar earlier on, modern off-road helmets possess a chin bar to protect the face from impact during crashes. By putting on such helmets along with goggles, the equivalent protection as from full face helmets is possible.

Modular/Flip-Up Motorcycle Helmets: Sometimes known by the name convertible, the modular helmet is often a hybrid relating to the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is on the pivot and could be moved upwards to resemble a face helmet. Anybody wearing the helmet may thus be capable of eat and drink while not having to take away the chinstrap. They're favored by motor officers who're moving around.

Modular Motorcycle helmets are usually kept closed while riding and also the chin bar is maintained only once not riding the motorcycle. When the helmet is kept in the open position while riding, the risk of neck injury is greatly increased in the eventuality of an accident. However, those modular helmets which are dual certified as full face and open face helmets give a great amount of protection even when used in the open mode.

Open Face Motorcycle Helmet: Outdoors face Motorcycle helmets cover the back in the head, the ears and also the cheeks along with possess the chin bar that a full face helmet possesses. Many of them have provisions for visors to be snapped on. The security towards the face is minimal when working with these helmets.

Supplementing facial protection by putting on goggles or snapping on the face shield protects the face from flying debris, strong wind and insects.

Half Motorcycle Helmet: Famous through the 1960s and also known as the pudding basin helmet in britain, a half Motorcycle helmet or &lsquoshorty' was popular among road racers. The design is practically much like a face helmet without worrying about lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet doesn't offer a great deal of protection and also the rider has got to wear goggles to protect your eyes. Because of the decreased safety they offer, several Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned using this half helmet.

Headwear Not Included Inside The Realm Of Motorcycle Helmets

Informal headwear including beanies and brain buckets cannot be included in mean motorcycle helmets. Most of these headwear are not certified for safety and so are lighter and smaller than conventional helmets. They don't have safety measures such as the energy absorbing crash foam. Inside their best, such novelty helmets may prevent the scalp from sunburn or scalp against abrasion. However, they can't avoid the skull from the impact of your crash.
