I'm also very dedicated to modular helmets. And I am very concerned about getting as quiet a helmet as possible. The Shoei and Schuberth are both reviewed as the quietest and general owner comments support this. The Fortnine review is good. There was also a comparison done by a guy in Holland, and he felt the Neo II was quieter than the Schuberth.
As a bit of a hi-fi guy, and a musician, I'm quite concerned about hearing protection. Additionally, I saw how isolating and depressing it was for my mother to have seriously diminished hearing in the last years of her life. Being deaf or having really poor hearing is a very big handicap. Anyhow...
I have a Shoei Neotech and will be replacing it with at Neotech II.Maybe this year, but the next for sure, as it is about 5 years old. I like the Schberth, but it just does not fit my head. The Neo II is by all accounts better than the Neo I (in terms of noise isolation. edit)
BTW, I tried on the new AGV carbon modular at the Vancouver MC show a few weeks ago. Very light- amazingly so, and very pretty. There was another fellow there who has both the AGV and the Neo II, and he says the Neo II is quieter on the road than the AGV.
2017 DL 650 and maybe another Vespa?
I'm having an adventure- so, its an adventure bike.
Now that summer is here, I'm retiring so I can ride full time.
