Over the last couple of months, I’ve ridden close to 2000 miles in the updated Neotec II lid – and, honestly, I’ve got nothing but positive things to say about it. From the ice topped mountains of Austria, to the sunshine baked coast of Northern Spain the updated helmet has held its own and handled a range of changes in temperature and humidity, and plenty of hammering rain. In short, it’s very capable. In fact, I actually had the previous generation Neotec I, and was hugely impressed with it at the time. It became my go to lid for over a year, thanks to its comfort, ventilation and flip-front versatility – and the Neotec II is even better.
