    New Shoei Neotec for 2018

    Anyways I'm sending it back so they can exchange, there's a finger print mark in the lacquer the pictures on the dealers sites are misleading, the lids looks matt on the web however its Gloss finished, exactly what i wanted

    There's 20% off at the mo @ lids direct, use this code - NEWSLETTER20





    The comms arrive sometime this month, Quality looks exceptional and certainly better than the C4 I purchased that fell to bits.
    I’ve just ordered a Neotec 2 for me and the g/f.

    That NEWSLETTER20 discount still works at Lids Direct,ta.

    Need to sort the comms on the Neotec 2,as need custom audio ear plugs as can’t hear much using helmet speakers if wearing normal ear plugs.

    I had a C4 with SC1 comms kit but couldn’t hear them very well with normal ear plugs in so want to go back to custom audio plugs like I had when I used a Scala Packtalk.

    But those were UE Soundears that are no buggered so need to find another supplier.

    Has anybody got the Neotec 2 with Sena SRL fitted ?
    If so,can you hear the speakers if you wear ear plugs ? Ta

    Let us know your thoughts once you have tested it. No reviews anywhere on the net as of yet.

    A cautionary note for potential mail order buyers: We tried the new Neotec on. Usual Shoei quality. However, after having several Shoei lids over the years, all size large, it seems that with the Neotec 2 we’re somewhere between Large and Medium. Efforts by the shop to source the various crown and cheek pad alternative sizes revealed a lack of availability until late April.
    Cheers

    I tried one on today. I first tried my usual 58/59 which is L in this helmet but I soon realised that the fit was too loose.

    I then tried the 56/57 M and it fitted well, albeit a little tight across the forehead. ISTR experiencing this tightness initially with previous Shoei helmets so not concerned about that.
    I’m really struck by the softness of the padding and comfort of the fit.

    J&S in Aberdeen reckon May for the comms system at a price of circa Ł265.

    Your right, I am also large and have been so in all shoei helmets in the past. My thought are the same the large is fine in the skull cap but the cheek pads are slightly loose, more so than the original neotech for sure. The helmet is very comfortable, quality excellent, but I will be purchasing the slightly thicker cheek pads once they have been released which is mid April according to the importer. The medium shell was simply too tight for me across the forehead so this was not an option. A good word of warning and definitely try before you buy.

    The shop should fit the helmet to your head size, by changing the skull cap and cheek pads if necessary (there are several different sizes of each for each helmet, so you could have a thinner skull cap and thicker cheek pads, etc, etc), this is free from shoei, if done before you take the helmet away. If you buy a shoei helmet and later decide to change either the skull cap or pads, you’ll then have to pay for it, So get the helmet sizing right before buying. If the shop say they can’t do this, they are providing a crap service so go somewhere else.

    The skull and cheek pads are due next week from Shoei in to Feridax, I've just got the helmet and liking it so far not so sure on the SRL as I've always had a Sena with in ear monitors.
    The SRL works fine and connects to the GS TFT ok, it re-connects to music quickly as well if another channel opens while listening to music ie satnav or SR10, but the audio multi-tasking only works with the intercom which I expected it to work all the time

    Great thing about Lids Direct, if it don't fit they will refund or replace it for another size and even pay for the return postage.

    Strangely im a medium in the previous Neotec, the bod at the nec said im a small in the new'un so bought a small however after sitting with it on my head for 30 mins the skull foam felt tight and pinched my forehead and i had red patches (hot spots) so sent it back for a medium, the medium is not as snug as the previous neotec, but ill overcome this by changing the skull inner foam.

    Feridax, said early to mid may for comms .

The Coms kit will be sub Ł250 but if you buy form Infinity motorcycles you get -20% discount if purchased at same time (ie single transaction), which is basically a VAT free as there is no VAT on helmets and if coms kit is installed at same time, which now become "one" unit hence the discount.

    I have tried new neotec 2 on a couple of weeks back, and it felt very nice and comfy. Last year I bought Schuberth E1 with Sena 10U coms to replace my 5 year old C3 pro with SRC system. and that is nice to but since !0U become Schuberth branded, it no longer came with remote control and in order to start bike to bike conversation, one has to open the visor, fiddle with buttons mounted atop of cheek pad (not fun in the rain) and so on. Neotec has buttons mounted on the outside of the lid which makes me want one just for that reason, not to mention, other good reasons to go Shoei.
    All the best.....
