Hi Steve,

Yeah, I've saw the video!
Very tempting, but it's a little beyond my budget.

Do you think it may worth the extra money?

thank you.

I just mounted a Sena SMH10R headset and it sounds great with this helmet. The speakers fit perfectly behind the ear pads.
This is my first Shoei but I do like it right now. I did try on the Schuberth before buying this. It did not fit my head at all.

Hi,
I already have a Scala G4 I want to move to my new helmet.
How easy it was to mount/position the Sena mic on the Neotec?
thank you.

Hi
Last year, when I was in US, I planned to buy a Shoei Multitec, but that time I was traveling with three women and it was virtually impossible to visit more than one dealer, since I was not driving (I've lost my driver's license ), so I ended up buying my helmet at the first place we went (a bwm dealer at Escondido/CA)...

Sure, Multitec is a very good option too.

thanks

Modular helmet recomendation

Toniguedes,

Bom Dia! Don't worry about your English. There are plenty of Brasileiros in Rhode Island and Boston, mostly from Minas Gerais. I spent 8 years in Boston and there are no true "discount" stores there for motorcycle gear but plenty of dealers. A few recommendations in the Boston area: Greater Boston Motorsports (Arlington, MA) and Riverside Motorsports (Somerville, MA). I recommend going to one of these OR buying online through Revzilla or Motorcycle Superstores once you know your size and what you want.

There are some good Brazilian restaurants in Cambridge and Somerville Massachusetts (churrascaria). Check out the Midwest Grill in Inman square, Cambridge. It is close to Riverside Motorsports.

Good luck!

Rich

The Sena mic fit perfectly behind the cheek pad. There is a nice flat area on the plastic that the cheek pad snaps into. It allows the velcro pad a nice flat spot to stick to. The mic is centered exactly in front of my mouth and I do not have to move it to remove the helmet.
I removed the ear pads and used the self adhesive pads to stick the speakers right on the helmet shell. There are nice recesses for the speakers. The pads install nicely over the speakers and they do not put any pressure on my ears at all.
I am so impressed with this helmet. The sun shield lowers to the perfect position for me. Does not come close to my nose as other brands have in the past. The pin lock installed easily and the shield removes with little effort when needed.
2 thumbs up!

Hi Rich,

Thanks a lot!
That changed my options a bit...

I'll be in the U.S. only for two weeks, and as there are no discounted places there, I 'm thinking of buying through Revzilla to be delivered to my hotel a little before I get there, so if there are problems with the fit and size I'll have enough time to exchange it for another or try other options at one of those places that you showed me.

I must confess that after a few days in the U.S. I miss our food here in Brazil, so I am carefully writing down your suggestions on my travel book.

Best regards

Toni

Great info.

If there is no fitting problem I'll buy a Neotec!

Thanks

Bom dia, Toni. No worries, your English is 100 times better than my Portuguese.

I will agree with all who said fit is most important - there are few bad helmets anymore, only those that lack features you want or that don't fit.

Greater Boston motorsports in Arlington (outside Boston) carries both the Schuberth and Neotec. They'll knock 30 or 40 bucks off the price if you ask, but that's it. I tried both, found the Neo a much better fit, and will pick one up in the spring.

Good luck.

I just recieved my new cheek pads today for the Neotec.
It came with 35mm pads and I just installed the 31mm pads.
What a difference! This thing is so comfortable. It has no pressure points at all. I think it will still seal fine and not be too loud around the cheek area with the new pads. Great purchase and I am very happy with it.
Hope yours fits just as well.

Sounds like you have a good plan, ordering from Revzilla. We don't have anywhere in Rhode Island (or nearby CT/southeastern MA) to try on the models you're looking for. I would suggest you order a couple of different styles and return what doesn't work. Revzilla has great customer service.

As for food, there are a lot of Brazilians living in the area. Your son needs to get out more so he knows where to take you :)

Hope you have a wonderful visit, and find a great helmet.

There's also a lot of people of Portuguese descent around Providence, so it shouldn't be hard to find Portuguese speakers.

Only analog watches here. I only bought analog watches for the kids too, some of their friend's still have trouble reading one and it's not because of polarized lenses.
