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.
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.
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.
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.
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 waterproofing seal.
