I would like to post a question as to what is the helmet everyone are using along with your blue tooth setup
I’m having a hard time paying 700 dollars for a Shoei helmet but I’ve found them to be the most comfortable and quiet is there an equal out there
I just got a Shoei Neotec 2 (modular) that fits very well. The previous helmet is an LS2 Strobe modular ($150 two years ago) and is VERY similar. I have taken both apart further than "users" are supposed to and inspected them very closely. Both are sized for "long-oval" head shapes, have the drop down sun visor, ratchet chin strap, are modular-type, have quick disconnect face shield, and excellent fit-and-finish. They weigh about the same, too.
The only real differences I can find are that the Shoei is a little smoother aerodynamically (possibly quieter) around the edges of the face shield hinges and the LS2 had a slight problem with the attachment of the chin curtain at the chin bar release button. It would sometimes come partially loose there and I would push it back in place. Both have good ventilation.
The Shoei Neotech 1 was $500 at CycleGear but does not have the ratchet chin strap, otherwise very similar. The Neotec 2 has channels and compartments specifically for a Schuberth comm system that can be installed and fully contained inside the shell.
I have used two different Cardo systems (Packtalk and G9x) on both, no problem.
So, why did I buy the Shoei?? I can't figure it out either. The LS2 is a VERY good helmet (for me) for the money.
Hope this helps.
