The BEST helmet I have ever owned!!!
> It comes with a kind of cover to install under the chin. This is great to help suppressing the noise which wind produces on the helmet. I even hardly hear the engine sound! Also the helmet design itself reduces enormously the wind noise.
> It has enough inner room for the “legs” of sunglasses (how’s the name for that thing btw?). Wear whatever sunglasses style you like, it wont be never uncomfortable on this helmet!
> The vent pads really works! Once they’re open you can feel the wind coming thru your head!
> The helmet is really lightweight. It feels VERY comfortable!
> This Multitec version comes with flip-up front to become an open helmet. I love this feature, especially when I stop or when I need to talk to someone; I open it and I feel “free”. Also, the front goes up and closes up very easily, even when wearing gloves. WARNING, never ride with the front opened!!!
> My Suzuky GS 500 is black, so I bought my Shoei helmet black as well. It looks gorgeous! 🙂
I recommend highly this product, it is really FANTASTIC!!! A+++++
i love it
is an excellent product arrived in excellent condition and is beautiful and high quality.
the color is perfect
thank you !!!!!
The Shoei Multitec helmet is lighter, quieter, more aerodynamic, has the little lever that lets you crack open the visor so it doesn’t fog, has lots of room for glasses/sunglasses (without them getting all cockeyed), flows air WAY better than that old Bell (some of the vents were cosmetic only – what were they thinking!), and I am very pleased.
I took one star off my rating because I do feel some wind getting in at around 75-80mph on cold mornings, and I am worried that this will be a problem as the mornings continue to get colder. I think you can adjust the way the visor is attached (loosen a couple of screws and push it tight), but it should have come set up better, especially on a premium helmet brand.
Also, my head size is exactly between Shoei’s medium and large chart, so I went to Cycle Gear to try it on. All they had was the Neotec (see note below). My experience is that I could wear the medium but it hurt my ears to pull it on with the face down, and it was just too tight with the face up. The large still isn’t exactly easy to get on with the face down, but it’s a breeze with the face up.
I got this helmet instead of the Neotec. The guy at my local Cycle Gear said that the Neotec has a little more room in front of your face and has the flip down sunglasses/visor thing inside. It’s also $550 vs. $310. I can wear $10 WalMart sunglasses and pocket the the other $250, thank you very much.
Finally, the color of this helmet (wine) is almost an exact match for my bike, so that satisfies my OCD quite nicely.

~ Five Kinds Of Motorbike Headgear
Motorbike helmets are of five types and are secured on the rider's head using a chin strap. The objective of putting them on and their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap is just not secured.
Full Face Motorcycle Helmet: The full face helmet covers the entire head up to the skull base and is regarded as the protective of all the helmets. It possesses a swiveling cutout band, referred to as a visor, made of transparent plastic through the front in the eyes and nose. Some helmets include vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and lack of wind. Full-face helmets that are commonly used for motocross or off-road rides tend not to sometimes have a very face shield however the visor and chin portions are extended. Head gear with less coverage is less safe.
Off-Road/Motocross Motorcycle Helmets: Mototcross/Off-road Motorcycle helmets have extended visor and chin portions. The absence of a face shield permits the rider to use goggles and allow more airflow that's required during strenuous off-road rides. The visor protects the rider's eyes from flying debris and keeps sunlight's glare off the rider's eyes during jumps.
Though off-road helmets was without a chin bar earlier on, modern off-road helmets have a very chin bar to safeguard the facial skin from impact during crashes. By putting on such helmets in addition to goggles, the same amount of protection as from full face helmets is possible.
Modular/Flip-Up Motorcycle Helmets: Also known from the name convertible, the modular helmet is a hybrid between the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is on a pivot and can be moved upwards to resemble an empty face helmet. The individual wearing the helmet may thus be able to consume while not having to get rid of the chinstrap. They may be liked by motor officers who are on the road.
Modular Motorcycle helmets are likely to be kept closed while riding as well as the chin bar is kept up only if not riding the motorcycle. In the event the helmet is kept on view position while riding, the potential risk of neck injury is greatly increased in the eventuality of
