I love this helmet. I wear a size small in Bell and Icon. Had to order a size medium in this Shoei. Fits perfect. Was pretty tight at first but now its broken in and fits snug, but not too tight. This helmet is extremely comfortable and decently quiet compared to others i have worn. (Bell Star Carbon, Icon Variant, Scorpion Exo-400). The pinlock is amazing on cold mornings. This shield never fogs up at all, it's like magic. The internal sun visor is great. When it's really hot i can pop the face shield up and drop this down and still have some eye protection and a lot of airflow.
This helmet is exactly what I was looking for; sporty, lightweight, quiet, and a beautiful fit. This GT Air is the real deal to protect your cranium.
Definitely recommend this product.
Good fit. Using the size chart I ordered an XL and had to change out the cheek pads to the thinner size. Fits better but believe I should have gotten an XXL.
Love the styling and it's the most aerodynamically stable helmet I've worn yet. Even drafting soccer moms doing their slow thing in the fast lane, it's not affected as much by the buffeting as I'd become used to.
Have spent several thousand miles in it already, including three long duration trips and haven't had any discomfort, hot spots, or neck soreness.
Mounted my Sena SMH10 in about 5 minutes. Mount fits flush with no issues running the speaker wires. Everything about this helmet makes it a great commuter and touring helmet.
Venting is superb, even tempering the hot, humid Alabama summer days. There is a bit of noise heard when the vents are open. I first thought it was just some static in my speakers but after a while, realized it was the upper vents flowing air.
The helmet is very quiet, minus the quiet but audible hiss of venting air at speed and the pinlock system does great at keeping the visor crystal clear (wish it were a couple mm wider).
Only two issues I've had with it:
1. The pinlock system keeps the main visor fog-free however, the internal shaded visor doesn't have this same protection so it can fog over. It's only done this on some of the colder mornings so it hasn't been much of an issue.
2. The pinlock system creates some weird reflections at night. Can be false illusion inducing depending on where you're riding.
The internal shape is biased towards the "Slight Narrow" part of the spectrum, with narrower sides and lots of forehead room in the top.
