Shoei Neotec Helmet Safety
Shoei Neotec Helmet EPS

2012 Dealer Expo Live Report
February 18, 2012 - I met one of the Shoei helmet designers at the
show and he had a cutaway version of the new Shoei Neotec
(review) that was recently reviewed on webBikeWorld.com.
This cutaway sample is very interesting because it illustrates why we
discovered that the upper ventilation is so good on this helmet.
You can see the multiple channels through the EPS; they were painted
blue for better visibility.
Also, the stainless steel "jaws" on the side of the helmet inside the
chin bar that hold the rotating flip-up visor locked are visible.
And finally, you can see the EPS foam and cheek pad material
installed in the helmet also. Very interesting, and not a view one
typically sees on a helmet -- especially a brand-new, flip-up model!
