NEOTEC 3 From SHOEI Now In-Store

POSTED: 06/09/2023

The NEOTEC series of flip-up helmets with internal sun visors has been supported by many riders by combining the functions that riders want at a high level. Now the new NEOTEC, which is all brushed up with SHOEI's state-of-the-art technology and know-how, is born as “NEOTEC 3”.

While inheriting the basic functions inherited from the NEOTEC series, such as the characteristic shell design for the internal sun visor housing and the face cover opening/closing system with eccentric axis, every detailed part of NEOTEC II has been reviewed and pursued to improve in comfort and functionality for NEOTEC3; a centre locking mechanism that improves the shield's contact with the window beading and prevents wind from entering, newly designed cheek pads, a new micro ratchet chinstrap that improves wearing comfort, etc. NEOTEC3 meets ECE R22/06 standard, P/J double homologation (riding with face cover closed is recommended)

In addition, the communication system mounting mechanism has been newly designed, with compact base parts on both sides of the shell, it enhances integration with the helmet design when the communication system is installed.

NEOTEC3, which has enhanced functionality and comfort in every detail, enriches the quality of riding in every riding scene, from commuting to long touring. 

Sun Visor

SHOEI's internal sun visor has a reputation for having quality comparable to the European sunglass standard EN1836 and high optical characteristics with little distortion. The NEOTEC3 uses the QSV2 sun visor, which is 5 mm elongated than the QSV-1. Strong wires are used for SHOEI’s sun visor operation mechanism that realizes smooth handling. The sun visor operation mechanism using strong wires and the mechanism that has a stopper function with a click feeling at the fully open position of the sun visor lever to prevent the sun visor from suddenly falling down are unique to SHOEI.


A micro ratchet type chinstrap that boasts high durability, safety, and the convenience of being easily tightened even with gloves on. NEOTEC3 introduces a newly developed micro ratchet chinstrap that has become compact. Made of highly durable stainless steel, it locks with two claws when tightened, and can be released only by raising the lever to a certain angle or more. 

The new micro ratchet buckle is downsized keeping these structures for maximizing safety. By knitting high-strength and high-elasticity high-performance fibre in the chinstrap, it makes it possible to slim down while securing strength, and the fit to the neck has been improved.


The newly designed cheek pad is extended to the back of the head to closely fit the rider's neck. Combined with the noise isolator that covers the gap around the chin strap, it prevents wind from entering from the bottom of the helmet. For the surface of the interior parts, raised fabric that is soft to the touch is used for areas where the rider's skin rubs against when putting on and taking off a helmet, and a high absorption and quick-drying fabric is used for areas where the rider sweats a lot. Ensure riding comfort even when riding for long periods of time. 

Integration with Communication System

In addition to communication between riders touring in groups and with passengers, the kind of riders who enjoy riding by themselves while listening to music, radio, navigation, etc. is becoming more and more popular. Under the circumstances, NEOTEC II and its exclusively designed communication systems have been highly appreciated by riders for their integration in design and convenience. The mounting part of the communication system on NEOTEC 3 is made as compact as possible, realizing a design that has a greater sense of unity with the helmet when the communication system is installed. Each part is equipped with a cover, and the helmet design is not compromised even when the communication system is not installed.

In addition, the base parts located on both sides of the shell reduce the vertical height to reduce wind noise. The same as NEOTEC II, switch units can be installed on both sides of the shell and a battery in the space provided between the shell and the liner at the bottom of the back of the head. It makes it easier to remove and fix the cover for the base parts on both sides of the shell. The battery box is designed so that the charging port for the communication system is placed on the back of the head so that the helmet can be charged while the helmet is placed on a flat surface. The exclusively designed communication system for NEOTEC 3 will be developed by SENA following the SRL series
