I have a well used Vemar Jiano and am very interested in the new EVO TC.

Colemanskeeper, please post a review once you get your EVO TC.

Whats the incentive to build the better mousetrap with this new ratchet thingy... do people have issues with D-rings? Im not worried about my D-ring fastener failing...


Ive really liked my multitech, and will probably buy the Neotech...sadly, I need a new helmet now, not a year from now.

I'm curious, why the most versatile ? What features does it have that make it the most versatile ? Just curious...

As I was just about to replace my Multitec Im pleased to see this.

Sun visor inclusion is great. Also looks like is might be narrower and less like a Stormtrooper helmet.

Im not so sure about that front vent & how it opens.

Again, I wish the colour options were better. No gaphics, only plain and no blue.

Still, these type of lids are just the best imo so Ill be getting one.

Ever used one? They are convenient. Easy on, easy off, even with gloves. Not that threading a D ring takes forever, but it is nice.

I use the D rings to lock the helmet to the bike, using a Helmet Guardian on the license plate bracket. I realize the helmet could be locked other ways, such as putting a cable around the chin guard, but the Helmet Guardian is so much more conventient. Lack of D rings is one of the main reasons I haven't bought a Shuberth helmet. I have a Multitec now, which I really like, but it's getting old and needs to be replaced. D rings aside, the Neotec sounds like it's made all the improvements I've ever imagined the Multitec could use. Maybe someone can make a lockable ratchet thing that can be mounted to the bike and which can grab the ratchet on the helmet in such a way that it can't be removed without a key.

I am sure more graphics will be released when it comes out in the US.

I was just informed today by Shoei that the Neotec is not a replacement for the Multitec, just another option!
There is also no release date set for the US yet...but it will be released here in the US. This is going down just like the Shoei Qwest did.

Amen.

My Multitec is the most comfortable helmet I own, but I'd love to have that drop-down sun shield.

i did not see the actual weight. Hope it is lighter then the multitech. My RF1000 is due for replacement and I like the idea of the modular helmet just not the heft.

I've been torn between the Qwest and the N103 (if I'm going heavy, noisy modular, I want the sun visor and ratchet strap).

Now this.

Probably buy the Qwest and ponder this later.

I have the Qwest...make sure you get the right fit...it is a little "heavier" than I thought it would be and also a bit storm trooper looking but with the shield closed it is a really quiet helmet...crack the shield and not so much...but then again isn't that the case with most helmets?
