  • The new Shoei Neotec 2 is at the dealers now. has anyone seen one with the SRL Sena installed:

    Has anyone been able to see one with the new SRL BT Sena unit installed? Better yet, have they been able to try it with the new wing? I put my hands on the helmet today at a Cycle Gear store near me and I really like the look and feel of the helmet. I didn't try it on as I'm experiencing an episode of shingles on my head and face of all things.

    That's painful. I haven't shopped for a helmet in awhile, this helmet you're talking about has the Sena built into it?

      yes, well not built into it, but it has compartments already molded to accept the sena without a big lump hanging off the side.

    Happy Saturday,
    I bought the Bilt Techno 2 modular helmet with Sena built in at Cycle Gear. Quite the bargain at $220.00. Since you can adjust the sound settings that also affect the blue tooth helmet sound I think the music quality is quite good and gets plenty loud.
    My 2 cents..

      Can't help you on the helmet but good luck with the shingles. No fun and can be very painful especially if close to your eyes.

        I just bought the helmet. It's a great fit and the features are definitely an improvement over the original Neotec. I've ordered the Sena SRL and will post a reply when I try it out with my new Blue Tour DCT that I take delivery of Tues!!

        WingConVette-I'm guessing you ordered the Blue Neotec2? I did just hope it comes close to matching the Hawkseye Blue. Back order til Mid May for the SRL I have been told.

          Well, that would have been the smart thing to do, but I paid extra for the Black/Neon one for visibility.

            The reporter testing 2018 GoldWing DCT/Airbag from Australia in these reviews is using the Neotec II with SRL on his 3 article test as solo rider and is very happy with helmet and communicaiton set, but has not used in combination with passenger or other drivers.

            http://www.mcnews.com.au/around-the-...nda-gold-wing/

            Based on this and other users positive reports, I have the Shoei Neotec II with SRL on order since last week to replace my Schuberth C3Pro with Bleubike bleutooth. Altough already available in Europe for a couple of months, due to high demand for certain colors/sizes and SRL headset in short supply.

                  Love the Neotec2, few learning curves with the install of Sena but now I would not want to ride without it!

                        So I too have two Neotec II helmets with the SRL in both. Used them this weekend for the first time and great set up but has anyone figured out how to not have the music cut out when you are talking back and forth? Frustrating to say the least when you are listening to music or Podcast.

                          I'm pretty sure mine automatically does.

                          BTW, the one issue I had with mine was resolved by a call to SENA and they walked me through to a resolution.
