The Shoei Neotec II flip up helmet is the successor of the popular 2011 model. It offers a host of new features, including an integrated communication system. Its revolutionary design and innovative technology have made it the benchmark in the flip up helmet segment. This review takes a look at the Neotec II. Let’s take a closer look. The Neotec II is a highly versatile, stylish, and safe flip up helmet that can be used by riders of all levels.
The Shoei Neotec II’s exterior shell is constructed of Advanced Integrated Matrix, which uses fiberglass composite to offer high-density protection. The shell is adjustable and has three different scale sizes. This enables the helmet to accommodate all sizes of heads. The interior is filled with high-density EPS foam, with shock-absorbent liner, stainless steel Micrometric closure, and double density EPS. The Shoei Neotec II is available in several colors, including black, orange, and white.
The Neotec II features a removable liner and a chin strap that is adjustable and easily replaced. The interior of the helmet is well-padded and has eyeglass-friendly cheek pads. The visor is distortion-free and the ear plugs are adjustable. This helmet has a wide range of accessories. Its lightweight, aerodynamic shell makes it ideal for racing and everyday use. It also comes with a removable EPS liner.
When SHOEI first introduced the NEOTEC in 2011, riders worldwide realized not all modular helmets were created equal.
With its lightweight, highly-aerodynamic shell, advanced noise reduction, and optimal vision protection, all combined with an ease of use (critical to a modular helmet), SHOEI had indeed achieved new heights in head gear design.
But that was just the beginning.
Now, with the NEOTEC II, SHOEI has not only improved on already outstanding features, but also introduced design advances to bring their premiere modular design into a whole new era.
