NEW GEAR AND PROD­UCTS

New for 2018, Shoei has un­veiled its up­dated Neotec II flip-front hel­met to fill the shoes of its pre­de­ces­sor, the very suc­cess­ful Neotec I.

De­spite its name, the Neotec II is much more than a sim­ple up­grade. In­stead, it’s jam-packed with in­no­va­tive new tech­nol­ogy – with var­i­ous im­prove­ments in safety, ven­ti­la­tion, iso­la­tion, vi­sor mech­a­nism, vis­i­bil­ity and com­fort. More specif­i­cally, the new Neotec II is made from Shoei’s ex­tremely strong AIM (Ad­vanced In­te­grated Ma­trix) ma­te­rial, and fea­tures a shock ab­sorp­tion liner. The in­ner shell of Double Den­sity EPS is en­gi­neered to ab­sorb dif­fer­ent im­pact sce­nar­ios, help­ing the Neotec II to of­fer un­ri­valled pro­tec­tion.

An­other ma­jor change is the new Neotec’s com­pletely re­newed acous­tics. The Shoei ‘noise iso­la­tors’ which sit in the cheek pads of the hel­met help to of­fer a big im­prove­ment, plus all air flow
