My Scorpion AT950 visor is easy with 2 large screws that a coin can loosen and tighten.  I HAVE had one of those come loose and fall out one time, but fortunately I found it later.  The Neotec is definitely the second quietest to the Schuberth I used to have and very comfortable.

Been a flip-front/modular user for as long as I can remember.  Maybe even longer.  Last 2 helmets HJC RPHAs.

New Neotec 2 arrived this morning, spent about an hour faffing about removing the Visor,
fitting the Pinlock shield to it, and then refitting it to the Helmet - Fiddly isn't it ? !

I've also fitted the Sean SRL-01 Comms Pack, updated its Firmware to the latest version,
and connected it all up to my Trophy and Garmin 595 GPS like this :

My iPhone Paired to the Garmin 595, using "Mobile Phone Pairing", with "Smart Services" enabled.
Sena SRL Headset Paired to the Garmin 595 using "Mobile Phone Pairing",
Sena SRL Headset Paired to the Trophy "DEVICE" Channel, using "Second Mobile Phone Pairing".

It all works as I want it to :

I can take and make Phone calls via the Garmin touch screen interface,
I can listen to music from the Garmin Media Player Memory Card,
I can listen to the Trophy Audio system ( Radio and my add on DAB Radio, or USB ),
Any GPS Voice Navigation instructions, or Media Player music if I play it,
interupt and taking priority over the Trophy audio system Music,
which switches back to the Trophy Audio when the Voice Nav, or Media Player stops.

Hope to get out and try it on the road tomorrow to see how it all sounds on the move !  :028:

Cheers  :821:

Congrats, Coconut. I think you will like this helmet very much. I love mine. I got the Metallic Anthracite color. 7 months in and it still looks like new.

Yep Coconut! Know you'll be happy with your new Shoei...Congrats!
Hard parts done...visor install! :174:

Let us know your opinion after a few rides! The vent system is great, imo.

Bought the Neotec II TC5, black and silver, to go with bike here. For some reason Shoei doesn't sell this color choice in the states.

I really like the Neotec also but just a heads up. Whenever you have the visor off, check the hinge screws for tightness. I had one back out on a trip but luckily it was unable to exit the helmet but did result in a floppy lower until I could stop to repair. Once home, I used a little thread lock - nail varnish - on the screws just for peace of mind.
