    Thinking of upgrading Helmet.

    any views on the Shoei Neotec - kind of like the versitality but concerned that it may be noisy

    appreciate any comments
    Cheers

    Haven't ridden in a Neotec but they review well. I have a GT-Air which has the same internal sun visor as the new Neotec and I love it - and it is a lot quieter than my old XR1000s and X11. The new Shoei shields seal a LOT better than Shoei helmets from a few years ago (external shield is also shared with the Neotec.

    What helmet(s) are you currently riding with? It may help people who have used a Neotec to give you an idea of quieter/louder in comparison to what you currently use.

        Also contact Helmet House and they'll help with fitting. They're a sponsor on here.
        Just be mindful that Shoei may not fit your head shape so be prepared to look at other brands.

          I bought one for the longer trips and find it quieter than my ARIA,
          the only downside is a bad case of helmet hair after a couple of hours on the head (looks like its been in a jaffle iron, short hair)
          Great otherwise

            I have one.

            Have it as my daily. It's a nice and comfy helmet but it's a little on the heavy side I guess. Don't get wind noises but that's because I have a music on all the time. Love it during the hot days that I can lift up the chin bar.

            As [MENTION=11284]gus96[/MENTION] said. Triple Mohark look if you have wet hair.

              You won't get an exceedingly quiet flip face, it's to be expected from a design that requires you to add more ridges that catch wind. Mine's quieter than my multitec was, but nothing like quiet. The GT Air on the other hand is designed to be a quiet helmet.

                I got one, you get used to the weight quite rapidly. All in all very comfortable love the top vent which really works well, not forgetting the tinted inside visor.

                      GT Air is indeed quiet, but one thing I have noticed compared to my X11 and XR1000 is that it catches the wind a lot more when head checking, etc. Will get used to it I guess.

                      (I've been spoiled with race helmet aerodynamics I suspect, but I certainly don't miss the noise).

                        I'll keep that in mind with the GT Air. I've been meaning to pick one up, but given the current time of year wearing the neotec every day seems to knock time off my commute getting RBTed going through Gosnells... Which I certainly have no objection to, there's a Muzz Buzz there, and it seems every other time I go there I see people literally staggering out of the pub, into their cars and driving off...
