Modular design: 360-degree Pivot Locking System employs stainless steel jaws that wrap around stainless steel pegs, securing the EPS-lined chinbar in the down position. Large, front-of-helmet release button is easy to manipulate while wearing riding gloves. Smooth, single-handed up/down action.

Changing shields is a snap with the new Neotec-exclusive QR-N baseplate. Included anti-fog Pinlock insert is likewise easy to install and effective, but, technically, is illegal for night use because it does not meet VESC-8 light-transmission standards.

Ventilation: Large shutter-type lower chin vent is effective and can be opened or closed while wearing even thick gloves. Same goes for upper intake (three positions) and exhaust vents. Deep channels molded into dual-layer EPS liner move cooling air through the helmet.
