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.

Internal Sun Shield:

  • The GT-Air comes equipped with a built-in QSV-1 sun shield, giving riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion.
  • A large, easily located switch activates the 3D injection-molded inner shield, and the distortion-free view blocks 99% of the sun's damaging UV rays just like the CNS-1 external shield that lies ahead.
  • Unique to SHOEI, the forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, allowing for the integrity of the helmet's inner EPS liner to remain intact.
  • The QSV-1 Sun Shield Exceeds the ANSI Z80.3-2010 Standard for Non-Prescription Eyewear.

CNS-1 Shield and QR-N Base Plate:

  • The GT-Air's larger CNS-1 shield provides a wider and taller field of vision than its predecessor.
  • Additionally, the CNS-1 protects against 99% of the sun's damaging UV rays, and SHOEI's 3D injection-molding process ensures a distortion-free view throughout the entire field of vision.
  • Coupled with the QR-N base plate system, shield changes and base plate function have never been smoother.
  • The spring-loaded base plates pull the shield back against the dual-lip window beading to ensure a wind and waterproof seal with each and every closure.

Pinlock® Anti-Fog System:

  • The all-new GT-Air comes equipped with a Pinlock® Fog-Resistant System, offering the most effective anti-fog protection in existence.

Progressive Shell Design:

  • Few components of a motorcycle helmet are as critical as its first-layer of defense, which is precisely why the new GT-Air features the DOT-approved AIM shell construction.
  • Combining fiberglass with organic fibers, the GT-Air's shell is not only incredibly strong, it is extremely lightweight, and comes in an impressive three shell sizes to ensure a custom fit for heads between the sizes of XS-XXL.
  • In addition, SHOEI's exclusive, state-of-the-art shell forming technology incorporates the aerodynamic advantages of a spoiler right into the shell of the GT-Air, thereby eliminating the need for a traditional plastic spoiler.
  • Reducing lift and drag during high-speed riding, the GT-Air's shell-integrated spoiler yields a stable, less fatiguing ride.

Noise Reduction Design:

  • Thanks to time well spent in SHOEI's in-house wind tunnel, GT-Air owners will enjoy a reduction of wind noise without blocking the road's "informative sounds." In addition to optimal shell aerodynamics and liner components designed to prevent unwanted road noises from entering through the bottom of the helmet, a dual-ridge window bead helps to reduce noise while providing a wind and waterproof seal.

Ventilation Performance:

  • Utilizing SHOEI's wind tunnels to help reveal the optimal balance between airflow and silence, SHOEI engineers equipped the all-new GT-Air with a large lower vent shutter for ease of use with riding gloves, a strategically-placed, three position upper vent for optimal air intake, and uniquely-positioned upper exhaust outlet vents to take better advantage of negative pressure suction - all yielding dramatically-improved cool-air intake and hot-air expulsion.

Fully Removable Interior System:

  • The GT-Air is equipped with a fully removable, washable, and replaceable 3D Max-Dry interior system.
  • The 3D center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider's head, allowing for an extremely comfortable fit while maintaining the firm hold necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding.
  • Additionally, the GT-Air's 3D-shaped cheek pads are available in different thicknesses for a customizable fit.
  • As if that wasn't enough, SHOEI's exclusive Max-Dry liner material absorbs and dissipates sweat and moisture twice as fast as traditional Nylon interiors.

Multi-Piece EPS Liner:

  • The GT-Air's Multi-Piece EPS Liner not only provides enhanced impact absorption by utilizing varying densities of foam, it is designed to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS, further enhancing the GT-Air's unmatched ventilation characteristics.

Three Shell Sizes:

  • SHOEI offers an industry-leading three shell sizes in the new GT-Air to ensure a custom fit for heads between the sizes of XS - XXL.

Chin Curtain:

  • The chin curtain can be inserted into the lower edge of the chin bar to reduce wind turbulence and noise.

Breath Guard:

  • The breath guard can be inserted into the upper edge of the chin bar to help reduce fogging by diverted exhausted breath down out the bottom of the helmet.

Five-Year Warranty:

  • Five-year warranty from purchase date. 7-year warranty from helmet manufacture date. Whichever comes first.

DOT Certified.

Excellent Helmet!

I have only had this helmet for a short time, but I have enjoyed it so far. Pretty much all the reviews I have read about this helmet are true. Very lightweight, good looking, and well made. Only a small complaint...you must keep the little breath guard in place. Even on warm days with it removed, the lens will fog up when you are stopped. Like I said though...not really a big deal. I put it back in and it was fine. As most people say, the cheek pads do make it a little tight, but I feel like they may be loosening up a bit so I will wait a while before I decide on whether or not to order the smaller cheek pads. I love the drop down sun shade! Overall...EXCELLENT helmet! Would definitely recommend!!

Excellent Helmet

The ventilation in this helmet is great, you can actually feel the difference when you open the vents up. The vents themselves are fairly big and easy to use with gloves. Fits well, similar to other Shoei helmets I have owned. The included pinlock takes a little time to get used to looking through, but it's worth it for a shield that never fogs in any conditions. My favorite part is the internal sun visor - it's not really that dark, but it's enough to cut down on irritating glare. Never having to change shields, worry if you'll be out after dark, and not messing with sunglasses is a huge convenience. Not cheap but it's totally worth it.

Nice Helmet

Just started wearing hope the fit loosens a little. I may need to go with the smaller cheek pads. the XL was to big for the top of my head so I went with the large.

Great Every Day Helmet

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.
