Product Details

Can you hear that? That’s the call of the open road. Few things in life can match the unbridled thrill of mounting your steed and spending the day exploring your surroundings while Mother Nature’s elements rush by. And though the unknown is often a welcomed part of the adventure, SHOEI’s all-new GT-Air makes it easier to adapt to the ever-changing conditions that lie ahead. Features like the convenient flip-down internal sun shield, free-flowing yet easily adjustable ventilation system, superior aerodynamics, and Pinlock Anti-Fog System ensure greater comfort and thus more time in the saddle than ever before. So what are you waiting for? Answer the call of the open road in SHOEI’s first internal sun shield-equipped full-face helmet—the progressively stylish GT-Air.
   
   Features
   
   Aerodynamic Shell Design:
  • Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing and professional rider's feedback
  • Multi-piece EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation
  • Three shell sizes and four EPS liner sizes provide increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes
  • Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift as well as diminishes pressure on the rider's neck while riding at high speeds

   Sun Shield Visor System:
  • Built in QSV-1 sun shield gives rider instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion
  • Visor meets ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyeglasses
  • Large and easy to reach switch activates the 3D injection molded inner sun shield
  • Distortion free shield blocks 99% of harmful UV rays
  • Forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, helping allow for the integrity of the helmet's inner EPS liner to remain intact

   Ventilation System:
  • Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior
  • Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance behind wind screens
  • Easy to operate large lower intake vents
  • Lower air intake/ defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation
  • The rear/neck vents allow for effective air exhaust

   Advanced Integrated Matrix (AIM)

   Interior System:
  • 3-D Max-Dry center pad and multi layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads
  • Chin curtain prevents wind entry and reduces noise
  • Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance
  • Eyeglass compatible interior
  • E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick Release System) allows emergency medical responders or personnel top easily remove the cheek pads from the helmet of a rider involved in an accident, in turn making the helmet more easily removable

   Standard Chin Strap Clip
  • Neatly secures the chin strap

   CNS-1 Shield System:
  • The CNS-1, three dimensional curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces

        Comments about Shoei GT-Air Solid Full Face Helmet:

        I've worn Shoei helmets for a long, long, time. I've tried out a couple of other quality brands and found that they never fit me quite as well as the Shoei's do. Something about the shell shape being well matched to my head.

        That's kind of normal. Everyone's head is shaped a little differently, and I apparently have a Shoei shaped head.

        The Air GT has almost the same shell shape as the RF1100, which was the helmet this Air GT replaced. The RF1100 has very slightly better ventilation than the GT, but the GT has a slightly larger viewport and has the built in sun visor that you can slide down with the flick of a slider on the left side of the helmet.

        Pinlock visors are standard from Shoei with this helmet, and the GT includes the emergency release system they developed for their racing helmets.

        The coolest feature is the built in sun visor, activated by a slider on the helmet's right side. The only down side to it is that the forehead vents are mounted a little higher to clear the retracted visor. Also, this is also NOT a Snell certified helmet - entirely because Snell doesn't certify helmets that have visors like this, or flip fronts like the Neotech. (At least that's my understanding of it.)

        This only matters if you need a Snell certified helmet for racing. The helmet itself is at least as well made as the other Shoei lids, so the lack of a Snell tag doesn't matter to keeping your head safe.

        This helmet is as comfortable as, and quieter than, the RF1100 it replaced. Overall, the only bad thing I can say about this helmet is the cost. Shoei's aren't cheap. But the build quality is hard to beat, and the comfort and quiet makes them worth it in my book.

            Comments about Shoei GT-Air Solid Full Face Helmet:

            Great helmet, I wouldn't expect anything less from Shoei. Like that I don't need to carry a spare shield to work. Flows good air on hotter days, anti fog insert works well. If you are looking for a all around good quality helmet and don't want to keep changing your face shield this is a great option.
