Shoei Unveils the Next Evolution in Motorcycle Helmets: Neotec 3 and GT-Air 3


Shoei Introduces the Latest Advancements in Motorcycle Helmets: Meet Neotec 3 and GT-Air 3

Shoei, the renowned name in motorcycle helmets, is raising the bar with the introduction of two exciting new models: the Neotec 3 and GT-Air 3. These helmets represent the third generation in their respective lines and come with significant enhancements, most notably in the realm of ventilation.

The Neotec 3: Elevating Modular Helmet Design

The Neotec 3 is Shoei's latest offering in the world of modular helmets. It meets the rigorous ECE 22.06 safety standards, both with the chin bar raised and lowered, offering versatility and peace of mind.

Furthermore, the ventilation system is now customizable, thanks to multi-positionable vents. will soon be offering helmet-specific chin mounts for both the Neotec 3 and GT-Air 3, allowing riders to capture their adventures from a unique perspective.

Ventilation is of paramount importance for full-face touring helmets like the GT-Air 3, and Shoei has made it a central focus in this model's design and construction. New intakes and exhaust ports have been meticulously developed in Shoei's own wind tunnel to optimize airflow efficiency. The operation of the vents has been improved to accommodate glove-wearing riders, and their design has been refined for easier differentiation between open and closed positions. will soon offer helmet-specific Chin Mounts for both the Shoei Neotec 3 and Shoei GT-Air 3, enabling riders to easily mount action cameras or other devices for capturing their rides from unique angles.

Just like its counterpart, the Shoei GT-Air 3 comes in three different shell sizes, accommodating riders from XS to XXL.
