Shoei GT Air Helmet

The Shoei GT-Air has been designed with a fully adjustable ventilation system, drop-down internal sun visor, fog-free Pinlock CNS-1 face shield and Shoei’s comfort and quality. The GT-Air has all of the features you need to keep your focus on the road instead of on the discomforts a lesser helmet can cause. The GT-Air was developed using wind-tunnel testing at Shoei’s state-of-the-art facility in Japan which led to an aerodynamically-tuned tri-composite shell that lessens buffeting as well as wind and road noise. The Shoei GT-Air Helmet exceeds the needs of today's riders, allowing them to enjoy what they love most.

Aerodynamic Shell Design:

  • Aerodynamic properties maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing and professional riders’ feedback
  • Multi-piece EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation
  • Three shell and four EPS liner sizes provide increased fit options that help 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 speed

Sun Shield Visor System:

  • Built-in QSV-1 sun shield gives riders 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, allowing the integrity of the GT-Air’s inner EPS liner to remain intact

Ventilation System:

  • Upper air intake vent 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 vent
  • Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation
  • Rear/neck vents allow for effective air exhaust
  • Breath guard and chin curtain included

Advanced Integrated Matrix (AIM):

  • High performance fiber materials combined with elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra-lightweight, rigid and resilient

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 personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from the helmet of a rider involved in an accident, in turn making the Shoei GT-Air more easily removable

Standard Chin-Strap Clip:

  • Neatly secures chin strap

CNS-1 Shield System:

  • CNS-1 three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces
  • Includes Pinlock Anti-Fog Lens for more coverage of the CNS-1 shield
  • Dual-Ridge window bead increases contact with the shield to reduce wind noise
  • Scratch-resistant shield coating
  • 99.9% protection from harmful UV A&B rays

Safety Certification:

  • DOT

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

I have always worn a Shoei medium. I had to return this in medium as it crushed my head. However, the large was a perfect fit for me. Otherwise an excellent helmet. Fantastic quiet ventilation, very comfortable. Sun visor is a very nice feature. Plenty of room to install a Bluetooth headset.

PROS: Good Visibility, great ventilation, Fits Snug, Void Of Pressure Points, Comfortable Padding

CONS: A Bit Pricey

Awesome product!
Awesome lid! I wish the graphic versions were a little less expensive. The speaker pockets work great to fit my sena speakers in. The optically correct visor is much better then my old helmet!

PROS: Good Visibility, Lightweight, Fits Snug, Void Of Pressure Points

BEST USES: Everyday Rides, Protection

No regrets for Shoei GT-Air
I tried every helmet available in the store and simply chose the one that fit the best. I also wanted solid red. Well, it's a radiant Bobo-red if you like that kinda thing. I do. I was in it five hours the first day I used it and had no surprise pressure points or scratchy spots in the lining. Granted, it cost a small fortune but I really wanted something nice that I would not have to go through the "wish I'd gotten this feature" or "wish it was more comfortable" blues. My "buyer's remorse" is now over.

PROS: Adequate Ventilation, Fog Resistant, Fits Snug, Comfortable Padding, Radiant Color, Lightweight, No Bad Pressure Points, Sunvisor Works Well, Nice Even Fit, Good Visibility, Safety Access For Medics, Options And Functions

Very Happy with my GT Air
After trying on every Shoei and Arai helmet, along with a bunch from other brands (Scorpion, HJC, Nolan, Shark, Z1R), I went with the GT-Air. Wanted a drop down visor to deal with changing light on long rides, something safe, high quality that will last, an aggressive full face look but works with my hog, and my dome is a bit tough to fit (long and narrow, usually right between L and XL). Very happy I did. It's very quiet, feels great as its broken in (initially tight at forehand but well spaced out), and looks good. it is pricey, but you pay for quality/safety. The airflow at the face is a bit tight vs. my old helmet, need the pin lock installed and will keep playing to find best combo of breath guard, chin curtain, etc.. Highly suggest everyone go try things on, what I thought I would get initially wasn't this, what fits for you is what wins. And my local Cycle Gear was great for this, along with ordering the color/size combo I wanted with no shipping in only 2 days. They also give a 7 day trade in case you don't like it. Awesome.

PROS: Good Visibility, Void Of Pressure Points, Lightweight, Fits Snug

CONS: Poor Ventilation

BEST USES: Protection, Everyday Rides

Great Helmet!
This is a great helmet. It fits nicely and is quieter than other helmets I have owned. The snap is a little awkward position, however if you use your index finger instead of your thumb to snap it, it's not bad.

PROS: Adequate Ventilation, Good Visibility, Lightweight, Fog Resistant, Ventilation, Fit, Fits Snug, Comfortable Padding

CONS: Snap Position

BEST USES: Protection, Everyday Rides

Great fit, ventilation, protection
Waited a couple months to post. Wore this for my first really long trip - two 550 mile legs, through windy Wyoming to MT. Used daily for everything from interstate high speed to off road (dual sport) rides. Found it comfortable and well ventilated for highway rides in the upper 90s, good with sunglasses and visor open for off road in the 50s and 60s.

Thanks to Brandon in Draper, UT, for the advice, info and fit!

PROS: Quiet, Adequate Ventilation, Lightweight, Comfortable Padding, Good Visibility

CONS: Prone To Fogging

BEST USES: Protection, Off-Road, Everyday Rides

Everything one would expect in a Shoei
-Everything one would come to expect from a Shoei helmet.
The fit was tight at first but conformed well after a few hours of use to fit my head like glove. The GT is light and performs well with very little buffeting. The only complaint I have is that I'd ask for a little more ventilation on the 90+ degree days. In cooler weather and rain though, the helmet works great.

PROS: Comfortable Padding, Good Visibility, Lightweight, Scratch Resistant, Fits Snug

CONS: Ok Vent - Could Be Better, Tight Inital Fit

PROS: Comes With Pin Lock, Good Visibility, Fog Resistant, Comfortable Padding, Void Of Pressure Points, Lightweight, Adequate Ventilation

CONS: Matte Black Scuff Easy

Pricey but you won't regret it
Comes with a pin lock shield, which prevents fogging, and that is awesome. The drop-down sun shield is super-handy as well, making this a versatile helmet for day or night riding. Comfortable, light weight, well vented.

PROS: Comfortable Padding, Fog Resistant, Adequate Ventilation, Void Of Pressure Points, Lightweight

CONS: Noisy

BEST USES: Everyday Rides, Poor Weather, Protection
