The noise isolator covers the chin strap gap, ensuring a peaceful and enjoyable ride. The interior materials are carefully chosen for comfort and functionality, with soft fabric where your skin touches and high-absorption, quick-drying fabric in areas prone to sweating.

Sun Visor

Functionality Meets Innovation

Flip Front Mechanism
The face cover's mechanism is a critical feature in flip-up helmets. The Neotec 3 continues to use the eccentric axis and easy-to-operate unlock button. A center locking mechanism improves shield contact with the window beading, and the face cover stays in two lock positions, ensuring convenience and safety during rides.

Visor
Equipped with the CNS-3C shield, the Neotec 3 prevents water and wind from entering around the shield and face cover. The shield's center locking mechanism ensures smooth handling, and the airtight sealing enhances durability and contact with the shield.

Ventilation
Efficient ventilation is essential for a comfortable ride. The Neotec 3 features lower and upper air intakes and a top air outlet, meticulously designed to improve airflow and maintain optimal riding conditions.

Quieter Rides for Ultimate Enjoyment

Quietness
Quietness is crucial for touring helmets, and the Neotec 3 delivers. Newly designed cheek pads and parts on the shell minimize wind entry and air turbulence. The internal sun visor operation mechanism's structure reduces wind noise, ensuring a peaceful and immersive riding experience.

Revolutionary Chin Strap and Communication Integration

Chin Strap
The micro ratchet type chinstrap introduces high durability, safety, and convenience. The compact micro ratchet buckle ensures a secure fit, and the use of high-performance fiber maintains strength while enhancing comfort around the neck.

Integration with Communication System
For riders who enjoy communication and entertainment on the go, the Neotec 3 seamlessly integrates a communication system. The mounting mechanism is designed with aesthetics and practicality in mind, maintaining the helmet's sleek appearance even when the communication system isn't installed. This thoughtful design allows for easy installation of switch units and a battery, making communication effortless and hassle-free.
