Shoei CNS-1 Pinlock Ready Faceshield

The CNS-1 Pinlock face shield fits Shoei Neotec and GT Air helmets and provides a wider and taller field of vision than its predecessor.


  • Protects against 99% of damaging UV rays
  • 3D injection-molding process ensures a distortion-free view throughout the entire field of vision
  • Coupled with the QR-N base plate system, shield changes and base plate function have never been smoother
  • Spring-loaded base plates pull the shield back against the dual lip window beading to ensure a wind and waterproof seal with each and every closure
  • CWR-1 Pinlock Inserts sold separately

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

Shoei CNS-1 Pinlock-Ready Face Shield 4.6 5 27 27
Wind Noise I bought the helmet to vent well and have great protection. The helmet is great except for the fact the wind that intakes my helmet is loud. There are too tiny cut out gaps on the visor that allow wind to sweep right in and pass my years. I feel the visors should have been modified to resist this. The helmet has enough airflow.An improved visor can simply resolve my noise issue. October 31, 2015
Does the job I bought it as a replacement for my shield that had scratches. It is amazing how much better the view is and how much my eyes tolerated. My only gripe is that Pinlock no longer makes a replacement for the CNS-1. With the new face shield I elected to go without the pinlock rather than put the old one back in. September 21, 2015
Replacement Visor for Neotec This Shoei OEM replacement visor was as expected. The fit was perfect and the visibility very good. The price of Shoei products continues to be high. September 21, 2015
It's the OEM faceshield for the Shoei Neotech helmet There's only one source for the Shoei Neotech faceshield -- Shoei. So, of course it fits as designed. You can buy this products from several sources, but this review is really about RevZilla's service. And it is very good, no... Excellent. This order, placed online, was delivered in two days. I will continue to buy from RevZilla. August 10, 2015
appreciate the pinlock feature for the film attachment bought as a replacement for scratched visor. the pinlock feature for the film attachment is much appreciated. proves very useful to control fogging. having the film attached also makes the helmet look nicer in general. Comes in handy especially for cold environments and sudden temperature changes August 10, 2015
If you need a new screen. then here's a new screen! I wish it was a little easier to install but I am an admitted not handy person. January 23, 2015
Quick replacement, scratches easy. I received my new visor the very next day! I was very happy with how fast it shipped. It fit just as I expected onto my Shoe GT-Air, connecting snugly against the entire seal, except for a small area on the left which is causing minor whistling. I have no idea how I did it, but I managed to scuff it within a week of putting on the new visor (Dang it!) It seems that these things can't withstand much more than bug guts at 70mph because man, oh man, do they scratch easily. Other than that, I love my helmet, it's FOV and how the visor functions. I would recommend this to any first-time rider. November 17, 2014
Great product I had to replace the face shield because my (brand-new) Shoei helmet was dropped to the floor during the recent Napa earthquake and the face shield cracked. The new shield is very wide, gives great vision and is easy to install if you follow the instructions. September 15, 2014

A shopper asked: Are they still not making a tinted face shield? How about a tinted pinlock insert?? Aug 29, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Peter F: As I understand it from Shoei, due to the fact that the Neotec has a built in sunshield as part of the helmet's construction, the use of a tinted face shield or pinlock insert would not be advisable due to safety concerns especially at night and during poor weather conditions. I would write directly to Shoei for their feedback, but that was the last word I got from them.
Hope this helps!

John W: As far as I know at this time, Shoei is not planning on making a tinted shield because the drop down sun shield is already in the helmet. Personally, that sounds like lawyers may have got involved with a tinted shield and the drop down shade making it too dark?? I use a couple of strips of black electrical tape across the top of the clear shield to provide an added amount of sun relief. Aug 30, 2013

farooq h: I looked for one to begin with too, however to the best of my knowledge they aren't making this. Additionally I was looking for the visor for the shoei GT Air, which has a sun screen that operates behind the visor, hence the clear one works for me. Aug 30, 2013

Trinh Phan (Tu N: I don't think they are going to make Tinted CNS-1, the J-Cruise comes with built-in Tinted one inside already. Like you just said, you can get anytime a Pinlock Insert for the purpose.

Aug 30, 2013
David M: The Neotec helmet comes with a built in dark shield that can be flipped up or down depending on light conditions. The pin lock system is clear and very effective. Aug 30, 2013

A shopper asked: Is there a tinted version of this shield available for my Shoei Nutec? Apr 24, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matthew N: Actually the answer is yes. They are not sold in the USA though. I bought mine direct from Japan. It is a dark smoke and also is a genuine Shoei product not a knockoff. Jun 3, 2015
Reply to Matthew Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert P: I am assuming that you are actually referring to the NEOTEC model, as I have never heard of a ''Nutec'' model, to my knowledge the only face shield and pinlock available are the crystal clear ones that are shipped with the helmet. Actually the interior drop down sun visor is so dark and so effective in it's coverage that in my last 3 years of usage with my NEOTEC I see absolutely no reason to have anything else. The included exterior shield has no distortion, neither does the interior dark drop down sun visor which offers unsurpassed coverage and sun protection.

Just love my NEOTEC, best helmet I have ever had in 46 years of riding ! Would buy another one in a split second.

P.S. If they ever do offer anything else I hope it is photochromic transition shield.

michael m: I asked the same question. The answer is no. With most riders wearing sun glasses and then lowering the inner tinted shield, Shoei believes that to lower another tinted shield would seriously compromise the riders ability to see clearly. Apr 24, 2015

John I: I have also been searching for an Iridium or tinted CNS-1 visor. It would appear that they are in fact in existence now (very recent) although I have only been able to find one supplier at racevisors in the UK.

Does this mean they are available only in the UK and not the USA?

RevZilla: Shoei does not have any plans to make a tinted CNS-1 Faceshield because the Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet comes with a drop down sun-visor. Looking through a sun-visor and a tinted shield has the potential for a field of view that is too dark and dangerous. Feb 22, 2013
