    I like mine. It fits better than any other modular helmet I have test fitted. All the others make contact with my chin. Reasonably well ventilated and quieter than other modular designs. I wish it had a removable liner.

    Shoei's seem to fit my head the best, and they are high quality. I've had my multitec for about three months and really like it.

    I purchased one last year to replace my Nolan. Unfortunately, life has thrown me a curve ball over the past year, and riding has been extremely limited. But, I'm happy with the helmet. It's not perfect, but then again--no helmet is. I may have purchased the Schuberth C3, but it was not available in the US at the time.

    As far as head shape goes, I find it interesting to note that the Syncrotec was uncomfortable, while the Multitec is very comfortable. So, the head shape appears to have been changed. Of course it's possible that my head changed over the past five or so years, but I wouldn't even know how to document that.

    No experience with the Multitec, but I had a Schuberth Concept for several years.

    My wife and I each just got a Nolan N90 based on the reviews on Webbikeworld (it won their award as 2010 helmet of the year) and elsewhere. Internal flip down sun shield, pinlock anti fog insert and removable liner as well. I like it better than the Schuberth and at less than half the price it's a bargain. I'd recommend giving them a look.

    I've been with a multi-tec for about two years. The chin bar is a tad close if you deal with any com gear. Otherwise no complaints. I've checked out the Shuberth C3, but the cheeks don't fit quite right.

    Thanks for your input....Looking for a new one also. I've got a Nolan now, and I hope the new Nolan will fit my melon a tad better than my old one. I tried a full face, but I don't like having to yank them on!

    Thanks again

    I've had mine for 3 years now & over 100,000 miles later it still fits perfect. I bought a Scoripion Module a few months ago & it just sits on the shelf.

    I'm a Shoei head as well. There's no question of the quality of the Multitech.

    When the Schuberth C3 came out, I bought one. Within a week, I bought one for my wife. My C3 now has over 30,000 miles on it and I think it's the best helmet I've ever owned.

    You can pick up a Multitech for roughly a third of the cost of a C3. It's certainly the best value between the two but there are features on the C3 that I prefer.

    For what it's worth, I have both the Shoei RF1000 for four seasons and the Multitec for two. I'm using the Multitec almost every ride. I'd recommend it. I'd also recommend getting the Pinlock visor for it.

    I have been a Shoei user for over 30 years. I am currently on my second Multitec after 104k and love it. Shoei just fits me the best, and has not given me any reason to change.

    Every head is different and you might find another manufacturer better suited for you.

    I have a Multitech and a C3. The Shoei fits me well and I think it is as quiet as the C3, just a little bit heavier.
