Shoei Multitec

Anybody out there use the Shoei Multitec helmet? What do you think? Does it have space for speakers in the Helmet for Intercom purposes?

Re: Shoei Multitec

I love mine and it has a pocket in the pading right beside the ears made just for a speaker. I have the J&M in mine so you know there is lots of room. Fantastic helmet!!!

Re: Shoei Multitec

Went from a HJC flip (which I liked very much) to the Mulitec which I love. Autocom speakers fit fine and I was able to mount the Autocom mike into the recess in the chin bar and route the wire through the chin bar to the hinge area and into the helmet. Works great. -Chuck-

Re: Shoei Multitec

I'm about ready to pop for one. Wife got one about 6 months ago, around 400 bucks from helmetharbor. She loves that thing, fits her much better than the quantum she was wearing.

Prices look like they've gone up a bit. Dealer has them here in socal for 480 bucks.

where's the best place to get one? for a $40 diff, I'm tempted to pay the dealer for one off the shelf....thanks.

Re: Shoei Multitec

thanks...I checked them out, then remembered about newenuff...

bought one there, about the same price, free 1-day shipping on the color/size i got, pure luck there...

I can't believe I'm buying one of these things, I really like my Aria SM-Z's (flip up shield, open face) but...I can still drink coffee on the fly with this new helmet so it has at least one good attribute!!

by the way, I did try one on in person, I wear a lg in Aria, but this multitec was way too big in L, I got the medium.

Re: Shoei Multitec

Check out this site:

www.parts411.com

Follow their instructions to get the real price. I just checked and a Shoei Multitec is $362.00. I bought one late last summer and their service is great and you can't beat the price. I really like the multitec...probably the best helmet I've ever owned.

Re: Shoei Multitec

Thanks for the feedback. i love my syncrotec but you can not put the speakers in it without butchering the inside. I bought a HJC flip front but hate it. Loud and not very comfortable. I am buying through Helmet house. Using my MSF Discount. Save like a hundred bucks or so.

Re: Shoei Multitec

+1 on the Multitec. Autocom speakers and mic fit right in. Very quiet helmet, and comfortable.

Re: Shoei Multitec

I had no problems with installing the speakers, in fact they were quite easy given other helmets I have owned. The mic was/is another matter. I am still lost in making that work properly. I have the mike fixed in place but the flex and bare wire is another matter operating in a closed position and full open position. That piece I still struggle with.

Re: Shoei Multitec order

I am shooting blanks trying to order a Shoei Multitec from Parts 411. I think I followed the instructions herein but I haven't been able to get the $338. price to come up on the order page. Must I call for a coupon code or is the 30mn51 code correct? TIA for advice.

I suppose IO could wait 'till Tuesday and call the company...
Best,
Ben

Re: Shoei Multitec-- best current price

did a thorough search online for the best price on the Multitec and found, ultimately ordered and received two, priced at $389.95 each! Ordering two also got me free shipping...

***Price shown above was for any color other than black or white- if you like/want white or black the price is $379.95!

Go to: http://www.motodepot.com/product_list.php?cid=1418

(Copy and pasted) DISCOUNT CODE: To get our best price on all our Shoei
products, put your item(s) in the shopping cart, enter
MotoDepot in the Apply Code box, and hit Apply Code.

I called www.parts411 today (Monday) for the coupon code. The sales person was extremely courteous and took my order by telephone at $352 delivered to Texas for a solid color Shoei Multitec. No hassles whatever. He said the helmet would likely be shipped today from Tennessee.

Thanks to those of you who alerted me to this company.

Follow-up. Helmet was ordered Monday PM and delivered Wednesday PM, almost exactly 48 hours later. Of course it came from TN to TX. No hassle, pleasant representative, price as agreed and shipping was included.
