NeoTech 2 owners

I'm trying to figure out if there is something wrong with my new neotech 2. I was pretty impressed when it was colder but now that it has hit 60 - not so much. Even with the front and top vents open, the helmet is hot as hell - at 75 MPH when it is 60 degrees out. Cheeks and chin sweating like crazy. Is this normal? Some 3rd vent or summer mode I am missing?

After some searching around online I found that they sell another set of cheek pads that have less noise dampening (Type A), so hopefully that will take care of the cooling problem. As it sits right now it is an awesome snowmobile helmet ;)

I replaced a Schuberth C3 Pro with a Neotech 2 last season and the venting was an improvement with the Shoei. Have you had the lining out? I removed mine to install the Sena system and made sure the vents through the helmet were not obstructed when putting them back. There is also the breath guard that can be removed to help the breeze move through the helmet.

No, I have not taken the lining out but I'll give that a shot.

I have a neotech 2 and a neotech. There is very little I like about the 2 compared to my original.

I don't have a NeoTec but I do have a Nolan modular. A proper fit has the cheek pads pressing in on your cheeks. This would stop any airflow from the front vent which is designed to move air up and into the visor not the cheeks. This also prevents air from blowing down to your chin. The chin curtain is there to reduce air flow which would cause wind noise.

My Nolans are very similar and when it is very warm I will crack open the visor to bring in air for cooling.

With my shark I could ride with the visor cracked. Withe the neotec it puts wind in my eyes.

I did pull it out and the holes were fine. I didn't have the breath guard installed but I did remove the chin curtain and that made a lot of difference in the cooling of the helmet.
