Shoei GT-AIR Helmet

The first full face Shoei helmet to feature an internal sun shield, the GT-AIR is a potent offering breaking new ground on the future of motorcycle helmet safety. Not content with just slapping on a sun shield for the sake of convenience, Shoei has reengineered its shell designs to accommodate and improve the concept. Elsewhere, its slippery, wind tunnel tested shape improves ventilation while staying comfortable at buffeting speeds. Pieced together, the completed offering is a superbly competent all a-rounder. From cruiser to sport touring to sportbike, the Shoei GT-AIR is a new beginning in street motorcycle excellence.

Progressive Shell Design
  • Wind tunnel tested aerodynamics for reduced wind and road noise
  • Shell integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag
  • Multi-Piece EPS liner enhances impact absorption while not impeding ventilation
  • Three shell and four EPS liner sizes provide increased fit options that help to comfortably
  • Fit most head sizes
  • Strong, lightweight AIM shell construction uses high performance fiberglass and organic fibers for resilience and rigidity
  • DOT approved
Sun Shield Visor System
  • 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 in one quick motion
  • Distortion-free shield blocks 99% of harmful UV rays
  • Forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, while keeping the integrity of the helmet’s inner EPS liner intact
Ventilation System
  • Large upper and lower vent shutters for ease of use with riding gloves
  • Three intake and three exhaust vents
  • Wind tunnel optimized to maximize airflow and improve negative air pressure exhaust suction
  • Breath guard and chin curtain included
Interior System
  • 3D Max-Dry center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads
  • Three dimensionally shaped to match contours of a rider’s head
  • Interior is fully removable, washable and replaceable
  • Eyeglass compatible interior
  • E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from the helmet for safer removable
CNS-1 Shield & QR-N Base Plate System
  • 3D Injection molded shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces
  • Includes new redesigned Pinlock® Fog-Resistant System
  • Dual-Ridge window bead increases contact with the shield to reduce wind noise
  • 99.9% protection from harmful UV A&B rays
  • QRSA Base Plate System allows smooth and easy shield changes

Disappointed in Very Low Safety Certification

I was very excited about this helmet and I bought it assuming it was the same Shoei workmanship I have relied on for over well two decades. Despite having amazing features -- pull-down sun visor, redesigned vents and flow, redesigned internal padding, etc. -- I was extremely disappointed to discover that it has only a DOT safety certification. I was assuming it would have at least the Snell safety certification that the RF helmets have had going back to at least the early 1990s, but it does not. I'm sorry, but my brain is too valuable to risk in exchange for awesome style features. I returned the helmet, and I will now be looking for another helmet that provides the safety features my brain deserves. I hope that Shoei can increase the safety certification for this new helmet -- I'm not even looking for a SHARP certification, as a Snell would be good enough for me.

better than a scorpion

have not had any fogging issues once i put pinlock device on sheild. it is quieter than the scorpion i was using. the air duct on the front is a little hard to operate with gloves on but can be done. the internal sun visor is awesome almost as easy to operate as on the scorpion. overall seems to be a better design than the helmets i have used in the past. bell scorpion nava....

It's my favorite

Best helmet I have ever owned ! It fits true, it's quiet and I appreciate the integral sun shield. Even though it is fitted with the anti fog layer it fogs up easily!

Very comfortable helmet

-Airflow is very good. When opening all three vents, chin, front-top, back-top you can really feel the air flowing past your head. -Aero on this helmet is really good. With my head sticking out at 80 there is a shockingly low amount of drag pulling my head back. -Granted it's an expensive helmet. You could prob get close to the same features and protection for ~300 with other brands like Scorpion, but all in all if you're looking for a high quality helmet this helmet won't let you down.

Great Helmet. Good build quality and quiet!

I upgraded from a Shoei Qwest primarily for the benefit of greater air flow and the internal visor - very pleased with the decision. Air flow is materially better and the internal sun visor very convenient. One difference I did notice right away is that the back of the helmet has a spoiler effect to it making it more difficult to turn your head from side to side at high speed. Not a big negative but a difference. I ride a Kawasaki Concours sport tourer.

Best helmet I have ever owned

I have owned about ten different helmets: 3/4, modular, and full-faced. This Shoei is by far the best of the lot. The fit is perfect, the air flow is good with the three vents, and it is quite. I ride almost everyday in Texas, and buy a new helmet every few years. I will always by Shoei now.

Shoei GT Air Helmet

Typical great Shoei quality. Fit is excellent, cooling air flow can be felt through my hair, pinlock is excellent as always, the drop-down sun shield is a great feature and overall I could not be more pleased. I have owned Shoei helmets for years from RF1000, X11, X12 and now the GT-Air. You can't go wrong with Shoei and Motorcycle Superstore.

Typical Shoei Quality

It's funny how they put "air" in the name because I think it has less air flow than any of my other Shoeis. The pinlock shield is included because the shield fogs up even in slightly cool conditions without it. The pinlock is required even though the instructions say not to use it at night. The helmet is great. Fits great, no noisier or quieter than any other helmet and the internal sunshield is awesome. I ride every day and the sun visor is really handy and works smoothly.

Nice and quiet Helmet

Good fit for a narrow head. Really quiet and comfortable helmet, perfect for a whole days riding at highway speed. Sun shield works fine and is great for changing light conditions. Best helmet I ever had, will try to get one for my wife too eventually.

Great helmet

I've owned an RF1100 and an RF800 before this. They were great helmets, but this one is even better. It is the quietest helmet I've ever owned. The top of the shield opening is a little higher than the RF1100 giving you a better view, and the padding and fit are great. The vent system is fine - no better or worse than the previous Shoei's I've worn. The sun shield is the perfect finishing touch. This helmet is worth every penny.

Very Happy with my Shoei

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.

great helmet

Fit and finish are great, it's a really well put together lid. Very comfortable and extremely quiet. Doesn't breathe as well as the name might suggest. The tight sealing shield combined with the lack of direct mouth vent gave me insta-fog without the pinlock installed. I'd rather just use the shield, but on this helmet the pinlock is a must. After a few rides I installed the nose deflector and removed the chin curtain and found that it flows much better. I guess it's good to have options.
