Anyone have any experience with either of these helmets? I'm also open to suggestions of other models to look at. My big criterias are: 1) NOISE, 2) water proof, 3) weight, 4) fogging, 5) ability to use a pin-lock visor (if fogging is an issue), etc...
If you're going as high as the Neotec, I'd suggest also looking at the Schuberth. I've got the latter. It's extremely quiet and comes with a pinlock visor and one insert. Pretty light too. However, part of its quietness is due to a lot of padding around the ears, which some find uncomfortable. Plus, if you remove the main chin curtain to make it cooler (I haven't done this), it will be a bit noisier.
Personally, I'd pick either the Shoei or the Schuberth based on fit. Morton's I think carries both; if so you could try them on.
