    I recently bought my first Neotec 2 and overall im pretty pleased with it. Its not the lightest of lids and does feel heavier on my head than my GT Air.
    I would say it does have a tendancy to mist up a little even with the pinlock. However, if i look around the area of the visor thats not covered by the pinlock its a lot lot worse so its obviously doing something.
    I did a lot of research when looking for a new lid and one of the things i did come across a lot was reviews saying that flip front helmets are quieter because the neck roll can seal better but a possible down side to this is less airflow and potentially more misting issues. Usually can be resolved by opening vents.
    Another lid i considered was the very highly rated HJC R-PHA 90. Supposed to be very quiet.

    The two pins that hold the inner visor in place are actually excentric adjusters to ensure the inner has a snug fit against the outer.
    Without that snug fit the visor won't seal to give that double glazed effect and will mist over.

    ps. I use the Neotec II and I'm more than happy with it.

    I do have very similar impression about Schuberth helmets. Checked out few models when was looking to replace GT Air. Ended up with GT Air II.

    I used to own a C3 en switched to a Neotec II a few seasons ago.

    I only have 2 dislikes about the Neotec II:
      The visor has no decent fixed "city position" for ventilation. This means choosing for fogging up the visor or get rain into the visor and obstruct the view on the speedo etc.
      The chin straps strafes my skin which is pretty annoying.

    I was really hoping the C5 would be a good option to replace the Neotec in time.

    Schuberth do seem to have gone downhill since the C3 - I own the C3 Pro that I've put a lot of miles on and it's getting tired now. My other flip front helmet is a Shark Evo One. That has the advantage that the flip can go right over the back, and the helmet is rated to be used that way - fairly unique, and the reason I got one to try. It's really useful for pottering around when it's hot out, or when I need to speak to people without taking my lid off. I tend to pull the chin bar back into place once my speed goes up to protect my face better against both insects and a high speed off.

    The quality isn't quite as good as the C3, but that is reflected in the price.
