Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Review

Been thinking about a Modular lid? I've spent the last 9 months commuting every day in this Shoei Neotec. Tune in to see how it held up!

Re: Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Review

But is it quieter than a Schuberth C3?

Hi-

I don't know. I got many questions about the C3 on this review - as in, people want a comparison. I have no experience with the C3, but I'll try to get one for review....

For some answer to a question like that, I like to look at the reviews on WebBikeWorld. Their reviews are very complete and covers all areas, including noise!

Here is the review on the C3 Pro : Schuberth C3 Pro Review - webBikeWorld

You can compare that to the review of the Neotec: Shoei Neotec Review - webBikeWorld

I also use the Neotec, and it IS very quiet, but I still wear earplugs!

What had sold me on the Neotec, beside lower price, is the outstanding ventilation!

Re: Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Review

I use the Shoei Neotec, excellent ventilation, quiet, however, I still use earplugs also.
When I purchased the last one, I also tried on the Schuberth C3....just didn't fit my head right....
Try both, buy the one that fits your head shape and is most comfortable for you...

Re: Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Review

I have the Neotec. I tried both the Shoei and the Shuberth. The Shoei was much better fitting (for me) and more versitile as to communication stuff, although there are probably other systems for the Shuberth I wasnt shown (dealer showed me the SRC system and didnt reccomend it). I bought the Sena 10U which is OK, Great sound but the microphone is all up in the way and irritates the crap out of me. The Shoei does have great ventilation and seemed lighter than the Shuberth. I also ordered my helmet from a European supplier as I prefer the latch on the chinstrap to the US version with the double D rings. Steve
