Does anyone here own a Shoei Neotec 2 ?
I’m going to retire my Schuberth C4 and am thinking of moving to a Shoei.
I’ve owned a Neotec (gen.1) back in 2012 and i remember it’s great quality and robust feel.
The C4 Pro has recently been released but the color scheme i like won’t be available for at least 3 months.
Obviously there is no stock of either of those two new models here in Mallorca
, so I can’t see/try them.
As such, i was wondering if anyone on this forum has first hand experience with one or the other?
Color-wise, I like the Excursion TC3 on the Shoei and Tempest Carbon yellow/black on the Schuberth.
Online there are no direct comparisons between the C4 Pro and Neotec 2. But solo reviews point towards the Shoei being superior in almost every respect.
The gen.1 C4 has had its issues and I feel slightly let down by Schuberth for niggling QC issues with the helmet itself and built in comms. Nothing major but enough to make me look at other brands, such as Shoei and AGV (modular helmets).
I did see the AGV, but was put off by the (big) shell size for my size S head and lack of integrated comms option. I also wasn’t crazy about the available color schemes.
Thanks and I appreciate any input that can help me make a decision.
