Default Bigman needs big helmet!

The site shows sizes up to 2XL.

What about sizes larger than 2XL? 3XL and 4XL?
So annoying that Shoei doesn't think of people with larger head sizes.

I tried one on this morning, usually wear a 2xl, but an xl fit perfectly. First flip face that doesn't squeeze my lips into my teeth. I will buy one.

Call Helmet Country in Rochester, NY. He'll do you right on price.

The $375 ones are gone once Shoei reprimanded them/cut the deep discounters off......

I have one I'll be posting for sale here, shortly. Wore it twice, and put it away. Been through Arai Signet-Q, Scorpion exo 1100, and now (my favorite) Bell RS-1, since.

The Neotec is a great helmet, but, just not for me...

Any ideas on how to adjust the visor? It doesn't adjust like a conventional Shoei, or so it seems. Wish I could return it.

Default Variable fit of the Neotec

It's definitely smaller than the Multitec I had in the same size. However, I will say that it is, just on visual inspection and overall handling, very well built. It just seems so much more solidly constructed than my old Multitec was. Just wanted to make that note for those thinking about buying. The size issue is so individual of course - the RF1100 really fits my head the best out of any helmet I've worn.
Don't forget that Shoeis (and other makes) make only three or four shells and they use inner linings and cheek pads of differing thicknesses. If you find that the fit is too tight then you can order "thinner" cheek pads that will give you the room you need for optimal comfort. But, all new helmets in "your size" will feel very snug at first and over time, with use, the pads will compress a little more easily and they won't feel so tight. Shoei recommends a helmet size that is quite snug to begin with so that there is room for some decompression down the road.

I'm a fan of Shoei helmets - they fit my shape of head beautifully.

Default Neotec vs GTAir

I ordered the GTair, which is the same basic helmet as the Netec without the flip up functionality. I love the helmet, but after a few thousand miles I wish I hadn't saved the 100 bucks and splurged on the Neotec!

That's what Ebay, Craigslist and the forum are for...and TeamZilla cash of course. I will note, the GT-Air is a little narrower than the Neotec if you haven't had a chance to try one on. The Neotec fits more like the Qwest according to my noggin.

Ride safely,
