Always been a Shoei fan and have had a half dozen of them including my current Neotech I and prior to that the Multitech. I recently added a Bell SRT Modular which I'm finding out is a great helmet and an even greater value. Seems to fit me the same way as the Neotech and in the same labeled size. One of things that led me to choose the Bell is the availability of a transitions face shield. This way I can drop the internal shade and have some extra shading from the transitions shield. Living on the west coast (literally) means I'm always riding dead nuts into the sun at the end of a day's ride. Even with the Neotech's internal shade I'm still holding my hand up to block the sun. The Nannys at Shoei will not make a transitions, or even just a regular tinted shield, that will fit any of their helmets equipped with and internal shade.
