Shoei has introduced a new line into their popular GT-Air model motorcycle helmet with the production of the all new Shoei GT-Air II or Shoei GT-Air 2 helmet.
With all new cool designs, the GT-Air 2 helmet evolves the original GT-Air helmet's functionality, performance, and design primarily for touring use to a new, higher level of experience.
Straight from Shoei:
"With the innovative and highly-acclaimed GT-Air as a baseline, the all-new GT-Air II was destined for greatness from the very start. Advancements in design, functionality and performance have further evolved SHOEI's premiere full-face touring helmet, yielding even easier adaptation to the ever-changing conditions throughout your journeys. Featuring a lengthened internal sun shield for optimal sun-glare protection, all-new "first position" shield opening for advanced ventilation and defogging, enhanced aerodynamics and noise-reduction technology, and the ability to seamlessly integrate with the all-new SENA SRL2 Communication System, the GT-Air II is equipped to accommodate your every need."
Wind-tunnel optimized to maximize airflow and reduce unwanted noise, the GT-Air II's three (3) intake and five (5) exhaust vents have been strategically shaped and positioned for improved cool air intake and hot air expulsion. A redesigned upper air intake shutter and enlarged lower air intake opening yield greater airflow throughout the entire helmet.
AERODYNAMICS & NOISE REDUCTION
More than just aggressive styling and aesthetics, the GT-Air II's progressive shell shape is compact and uniquely streamlined to reduce air resistance and drag. Improved, airtight window beading and an enhanced internal sun shield system prevent unwanted wind noise inside the helmet.
The GT-Air II's advanced shield system provides a large, distortion-free view, facilitates smooth and easy shield changes, features an all-new "first position" shield opening, and comes equipped with a lengthened internal sun shield for optimal relief from sun glare in one quick motion.
Few characteristics of a motorcycle helmet are as critically important as its first and second layers of defense, which is precisely why the GT-Air II features the Shoei-exclusive Multi-Ply Matrix AIM shell and Multi-Piece/Multi-Density EPS liner.
Some additional features incorporated into the new GT-Air 2 helmet include:
- Shield houses new airtight window preventing water from entering helmet
- Shell integrated spoiler reduces drag and lift
- 3-D Max Dry Interior System
- Five-year warranty
- And, of course, DOT Certified
