Shoei has gone one step further to bring us the new Neotec 2, a modular fiber helmet with the latest technological advances. A reference helmet in the motorcycle world market that comes with this new improved version. It is not easy because the first Neotec left the bar very high.
The shell of the Neotec 2 is manufactured in AIM (Advanced Integrated Matrix). It is an organic fiber composite and multi-layer fiber composite that absorbs impacts with optimal rigidity.
The EPS consists of two densities, like the previous model, offering a high degree of shock absorption.
One of the big differences with its predecessor is that now the helmet has the double homologation P/J, so that we can move with it safely in integral mode and jet mode, something that is appreciated when we perform many kilometers and in the hottest days. In addition, it is sold in three sizes of outer shell for a better fit to each size.
As for the pivoting mechanism of the chin bar, it is made of 100% stainless steel, which provides great safety, optimum performance and total durability. As usual in Shoei, its mechanism is very functional, designed to maximize the comfort of the rider.
The ventilation system consists of an air inlet in the upper area of ââthe shell and another in the chin bar. In addition, the helmet has two exterior exits, one in the back and another in the neck.
In this section we find one of the great differences with the previous model. The air flow and aerodynamics have gone a step further and have improved over the previous model.
On the one hand, the introduction of the Vortex Generator in the area of ââthe chin guard avoids the entry of air inside the helmet, in addition to reducing noise. On the other hand, the integrated double spoiler, tested in the wind tunnel, minimizes turbulence at high speeds.
The new CNS-3 screen includes a Pinlock anti-fog system, offers a somewhat wider field of vision and also ensures 99% protection against UV rays.
The solar visor, meanwhile, is called QSV-1, is one of the most advanced on the market and is approved according to DIN EN 1836, complying with the European standard for sunglasses. In addition, it has anti-scratch, anti-fog and 99% UV protection. It can be easily operated even with thick gloves.
Inside the helmet we find a 3D central padding to achieve maximum comfort, a special padding in the area of ââthe ears that reduces noise from the outside and logically all interior padding is completely removable and washable.
Closure and details
The helmet closing system is micrometric stainless steel retention, improving safety, extending its proper functioning and useful life.
In addition, the strap of the closure is removable, washable and replaceable, an improvement that is also appreciated when we have made use of the helmet for a long time.
Finally, it should be noted that the Neotec 2 is ready to integrate the Sena SRL communication system, which is sold separately and is fully integrated with the helmet without affecting its aesthetic.
In short, the Shoei Neotec 2 arrives on the market with the aim of remaining one of the reference helmets in the modular sector. Despite being a modular helmet, the Neotec 2 stands out for its compact design, reduced weight and superb soundproofing, more complete than in the previous model. Without a doubt, this is a helmet with magnificent features and finishes that make it a perfect product for all kinf of situations.
