Shoei Neotec II Respect TC-5
Shoei Neotec II Respect TC-5 description
The Shoei Neotec 2 is the successor to the already extremely popular Shoei Neotec flip up helmet. This state of the art helmet has received a completely fresh upgrade and a few innovative improvements. The Neotec 2 is a flip up helmet that marries comfort and safety with each other, and it’s very suitable for many different styles of riding: from long tours to riding in the city.
The handmade outer shell is made from Shoei’s extremely safe and aerodynamic Advanced Integrated Mix. This is a combination of lightweight but exceptionally strong glass fibres. The outer shell is available in three different sizes which ensures that a helmet size ‘small’ doesn’t have the same shape and size as a size ‘extra-large’ (this requires less filler material). The EPS inner shell has a dual density which slows down the motion during an impact.
Neotec 2 comfort
The fully removable and washable interior of this helmet is very comfortable, 3D pre-shaped, and available in different sizes (cheek pads and centre pads). This way you can always optimize your helmet according to the shape of your head. The finish with leather provides the helmet with a very luxurious appearance.
Neotec 2 ventilation and aerodynamics
The ventilation has been completely redesigned. The chin bar presents an air intake we have never seen before. The wide opening lets a lot of air in and it is very easy to control with a button in the inside. The top and rear ventilation also have large airways which offer a comfortable airflow and exhaust for the warm air, without the aerodynamics of the helmet being reduced. Two spoilers on the helmet improve the aerodynamics.
Seen as there are no gaps in the helmet and due to the fact that the underside of the helmets is extremely compact, the helmet is very quiet and noise resistant. The helmet is nearly fully closed at the underside due to all the new improvements.
Neotec 2 communication system
They have developed a completely new communication system in cooperation with Sena especially for the Shoei Neotec 2. A small module is placed on the side which does not alter the wearing comfort of the helmet at all. The rear of the helmet offers space for the battery. The microphone and speakers still need to be installed.
The renewed visor of the Neotec 2
The patented Shoei CNS-3 visor is another pearl from the new Neotec 2. Very large, very clear and of exceptional quality. When opening the helmet the chin bar moves forward a little, the same happens when you lock the chin back upwards into its top position. This ensures that the visor sucks itself against the rubber and is completely integrated into the helmet. The anti-fog Pinlock EVO lens comes with the helmet and the Shoei Neotec 2 also features an integrated sun visor. The beauty of this sun visor is that it slides over the top of the outer shell and doesn’t interrupt the structure.
Last but not least this helmet has a dual homologation (P/J certification) and can be used as an open face helmet as well as a full face helmet. The locking chin strap buckle is made from stainless steel, which is strong enough to withstand large forces.
