New helmet

Shoei Neotec 2 in white - sooooo conservative. Lovely and comfortable. Strangely for a flip front you also get a breath guard.

In the winter when the front and visor are both down and you are riding in the rain the breath guard will make sense.
I like my Neotec the flip front is very handy when doing marshaling or even when on road rides. The inbuilt Sena comms work great although I think the buttons are fiddly. I do prefer my Hornet X2 for dirt road riding though. Cant wear goggles with the Neotec.

It will certainly be on my replacement list when my current Neotec 1 (and Cardo SHO-1 comms) needs replacing. Only thing is the facility for the built in Sena system though as I currently personally prefer the Cardo Packtalk comms.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

I agree, had my Neotec 1 for a while, so need to move up to Neotec 2 soon.  :028:

I was surprised at how much better the Neotec 2 was compared to the Neotec 1.

You'd recommend the comms then?
