Replacing my HJC

Hi all

Going to be replacing my HJC full face helmet.
Had it a few years and now it is letting in wind under the chin
and around the visor. It seems to have lost its aerodynamic quality's,
if that's possible. The seals are probably failing.
On the freeway I feel like I have a square helmet on.
Wind pushes against the visor very hard..
Can anyone recommend a nice aerodynamic helmet with Bluetooth?

Thanks!

I just bought a Neotec 2 and it seems to be a very good helmet. Much better than my Neotec 1. Probably better than my old Multitecs, but I still find them the most comfortable. Shoei fan here. Obviously.

Not sure what your budget is, though.

Speaking of helmets, what do you use to clean you face shield?

I have been using Pledge Multi Surface and Plexus ($$$), both work well.

Anything better?

Just the `waterless` liquid for visor and helmet, I'm not out in rain so don't know how it would affect the helmet Paul.
