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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My first expensive helmet. Really wanted the drop down sun shield and love shoei reputation. I made a good choice.
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.
