Shoei Neotec II launched at Eicma

The only flip-front crash helmet I’ve chosen to wear is the Shoei Neotec, so the launch of the II version is of great interest to me. 


One of the big improvements is thst it is preapred for an integrated Sena Communications bluetooth device, operated by simple to use buttons. 

It also features a composite fibre shell, Integral sun visor, a newly designed cheek pad that is claimed to make it much quieter than the previous. 

A new locking system has been added to the helmet too, to make sure that the front is secured when flipped up, important as the Neotec II is the first Shoei system helmet to feature dual homologation – that is as both an open and full face. 

To be available in six sizes from XS to XXL in three shell sizes, we look forward to trying one when they arrive in 2018. www.shoeiassured.com
