Shoei Neotec now in UK dealers

Firm's first helmet with drop-down sun visor hits the UK

SHOEI'S new Neoteh is now available in UK dealers. The new helmet, which is aimed directly at Schuberth and BMW's offerings, is priced at £470 and is Shoei's first helmet with a built-in drop-down sun visor.

Here's what Feridax (Shoei's UK importer) have to say about it:

The New Shoei NEOTEC – Fact File:

  • See clearly in safety – Shoei’s first built-in, drop-down sun visor boasts additional space within the shell with no compromise of safety in the front  absorption layer. The replaceable visor is anti-fog and scratch coated, offers 99% UV blockage and a special lever offers easy handling, even when wearing gloves
  • Safety lock – The micro-ratchet system is constructed of 100% stainless steel and is easy to adjust with a simple open and close fluidity
  • Pure ventilation – Specially designed vortex generators offer 276% improved ventilation and airflow over Shoei’s Multitec helmet and a flush surface offers less wind turbulence
  • Shock Absorbance – A 5-ply AIM multi-composite fibre shell ensures a combination of high strength, light weight and optimum elasticity for total peace of mind
  • Safety In Comfort –  A 3d-centrepad is detachable and washable as are the cheek pads, while ear pads reduce noise and the adjustable chin strap is also easy to maintain and clean

The NEOTEC helmet is a product of Shoei continuing to listen to the needs of their customers, before delivering a solution which offers the riding comfort of an integral sun visor without the overall safety being  weakened by a compromised shell density.

This has been achieved through a shell being placed outside of the helmet surface, while the thickness of Shoei’s proven inner lining, remains unchanged.

The Shoei Neotec helmet also looks every bit as good it performs, being available in 6 finish and colour options of metallic, white, silver, wine red, black & matt black and three outer shell constructions for the perfect fit of (1) XS – M (2) L (3) Xl – XXL.
