Gone are the days where you had to send out your helmet to get a custom communication device installed. Sena created the 10U Communication System for several premium motorcycle helmets, including the Shoei Neotec. This article covers the features of both products, as well as how to install the Sena 10U into the Shoei Neotec.
Shoei Neotec Borealis Modular Helmet
One of the best modular helmets on the market today, the Neotec is now available with high-visibility graphics. The Shoei Neotec was designed with long-distance riders in mind.
The Neotec is a modular helmet, which means that the face shield lifts up if you choose to do so. In addition to a multi-position face shield, the helmet has an adjustable sun visor built right in the helmet. The Neotec comes with a Pinlock visor, which is easily removable for changing shields.
Shoei’s Neotec has a high-quality ventilation system to provide the rider with maximum comfort. The 3-position top vent takes in air while the new adjustable exhaust vent expels unwanted warm air. Additional ventilation is also found on the inside of the helmet, with several funnels built right into the EPS.
The interior of the helmet is completely removable and washable. Made with Shoei’s 3D liner, it is comfortable for long rides. There are even notches in the liner for eye glasses. Additionally, the liner has removable ear pads to create room for a communication system like the Sena 10U. The chin curtain is also removable on the Neotec.
The Shoei Borealis Neotec is available in sizes XS-XXL.
Sena 10U Communication System w/ Handlebar Remote
Invisible from the outside, the Sena 10U Communication System allows you to talk with up to four people within 1.6 kilometers thanks to Bluetooth Technology. You can also listen to your favorite radio station by activating the integrated programmable FM tuner.
The Bluetooth Handlebar Remote is easy to use with gloves, allowing you to focus on the road rather than the device. The 10U is equipped with special noise control that blocks out distracting sounds such as wind, while still allowing you to be aware of your surroundings.
The Sena 10U is available for several different helmets, not just the Shoei Neotec. The 10U compatible helmets are:

One of the best qualities of the Sena 10U is the easy installation process. We will walk you through how to install the device on a Shoei Neotec.
To begin the installation, remove the helmet’s ear and cheek pads. Next, install the snap holder and speakers by inserting the speaker into the designated cutout on the helmet (see second image below). Repeat on the opposite side.
To install the battery, insert the battery piece between the shell and interior, as shown in the image directly below.
To insert the antenna, insert the straight end between the shell and interior on the side of the helmet (see second image below).
Lastly, to insert the microphone piece, simply insert the part with the controls between the shell and interior on the opposite side of the antenna, as shown below.
