Coefficients of neoclassical transport in tokamaks and stellarators with non-axisymmetric equipotential surfaces mis-aligned with magnetic flux surfaces are derived for the 1/ν regime. In the general case, they are given by integral expressions including field line integrals similar to those defining the effective helical ripple [V.V. Nemov et al. // Phys. Plasmas. 1999, v. 6, p. 4622]. For small mis-alignments in a tokamak with a simplified geometry, they are reduced to simple analytical expressions.
