This year, Shoei released the new high-end Shoei Neotec modular helmet. According to Shoei, the Neotec will not replace the Shoei Multitec, which will still be available as a less expensive alternative to the Neotec.
The Neotec helmet offers significant improvements over its predecessor the Multitec. It offers a superior ventilation system that includes a new front chin vent and a larger top vent. The Neotec offers a higher reduction in wind noise, achieved by better sealing around the neck and the flip-up parts. Another new feature in Neotec helmets is the washable, completely removable liner—in Multitec helmets, the lining is fixed. Other improvements include better shell aerodynamics and a wider and taller field of vision.
The only downside is the higher price, which is just below $600.
Neotec helmets come in several colors—black, matte black, anthracite, silver, white, wine red, brilliant yellow. Watch the Shoei’s official promotional video of the Neotec below.
