I only have the HJC Sy-Max II and Sy-Max to compare it to..but I can tell you it's much, much quieter then those two. The first thing I noticed when I rode home.Let us know how you like it after some extended use. I'm
interested in the noise level. Thanks
Kool..............I thought they were over $600, so it sounds like you got a good deal. I want to get something more upscale than my HJC Sy-Max.......hard for me to let go off 600 clams, but maybe one will show up used in a few months or so..........??? I would also get the white version......mark444: It's Shoei's new Neotec..expensive~!.$555 I picked it up from Competetion Accessories, only a 20 mile home..but I like it so far.
Looks like the Shoei weighs 4lbs in an extra large, and a Sy-Max is just alittle less the 3 oz lighter in a extra large. My Sy-Max II is at the office, since I couldn't bring it back yesterday, but it's a 2xl. I don't really notice..short thick neck...:mrgreen:How did the weight compare to your other helmets?
No it's just white..I think it's the reflection from my desk or the lighting.Very nice! I have the Shoei Multi Tec & really like it. It's getting a bit long in the tooth though(6 yrs). I like that White. Is that the "pearl" white?
I may have to start shopping :yesnod:
Drop down visor works well..very simple..I just needed to get use to the placement. Very short throw to drop and raise compared to the Sy-Max II. I don't wear glasses, but did try it with sunglasses, and there was no problem with clearance..I like the slots for the temples..my sunglasses fit where they were suppose to, They rode too high with the Sy-Max.how does that drop down sun visor work for you as far as taking up room in front of you? Would wearing glasses be a problem with the visor? thanks, I have been waiting for shoei to make my perfect helmet and I think they have.
