Here’s what Shoei says about the helmet itself: “The sequel to 2011’s widely praised flip-up helmet, the Neotec, Shoei’s Neotec II furthers the state of the art flip up technology whilst improving on functionality and comfort. Inheriting the Neotec’s shape and purpose, the Neotec II improves in several key areas, with a more aggressive aesthetic and an option for an integrated Sena Communications bluetooth device. It also continues to push the limits of comfort and protection with the new double shield system designed to prevent any leakage and a newly designed cheek pad that has been proven to be much quieter than the previous iteration. A new locking system has been added to the helmet 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. The original Neotec has been adopted by many riding circles both casual and professional, notably being the helmet of choice for the UK police force, and the Neotec II promises to reach the same level, and push farther still”
