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 Faceshield 4.7 5 14 14
This product has good features. My original was scratched when making modifications to the cheek pads. I needed a replacement. April 7, 2014
exactly what I was looking for Scratched my original, got this replacement. Fits perfectly February 12, 2014
Good clear screen locks in tight, and with pinlock installed, is fog free. December 2, 2013
Replacement shield...it works Not a big shocker of a review but the replacement shield from Shoei for my GT Air fits perfectly. I needed to replace my original shield as some a$$hat gravel truck kicked up some rocks at me and I ended up with some good nicks and scratches on my once clear faceshield. I never ride with the faceshield open, ever...case in point!! The new shield fits perfectly and it is optically nice and clear. I have yet to use the pinlocks for the fog shield but others who have say it works well. You can't really go wrong with an OEM replacement, cheers!! November 18, 2013
It Works! Well, it works. Fits the helmet it was designed for. It won't fit a helmet it wasn't designed for. September 23, 2013
Works as Advertised Seems to greatly reduce the amount of fogging. Much better than spray/wipe on chemicals. September 2, 2013
exactly what it says on the tin I bought this to replace the shield that came on my GT-Air (bought elsewhere, shame on me) when I scratched it. Not sure how I did it, but the scratch was in the middle of the view field and it was intolerable to ride with. Shipping was fast of course, installed in seconds, and I have a clear view again. Pinlock installed easily thanks to video tutorial from Revzilla. August 26, 2013
This was a replacement after scratching the original the rating are for the helmet. Very pleased m Love the Neotech. I have used it for about 12,000 miles included 8600 miles from Kansas to Fairbanks Alaska and back. July 22, 2013

A shopper asked: Are they still not making a tinted face shield? How about a tinted pinlock insert?? Aug 29, 2013

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: Does or will Shoei build a tint, or better yet a mirror tint shield for these? So far Its the only helmet I can't find a mirror tint lense for. Feb 21, 2013

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
