Shoei GT-Air Inertia Helmet

Enjoying the ride is what motorcycling is all about and having a helmet that is comfortable and safe is just facilitates that enjoyment. The Shoei GT-Air has been designed from the ground up to be the ultimate all-rounder. With a fully adjustable ventilation system, drop-down internal sun visor, fog-free Pinlock CNS-1 face shield and Shoei’s legendary comfort and quality, the GT-Air has all of the features you need to keep your focus on the road instead of on the discomforts a lesser helmet can cause.

The Shoei GT-Air was developed using wind-tunnel testing at Shoei’s state-of-the-art facility in Japan which lead to an aerodynamically tuned tri-composite shell that mitigates buffeting, as well as wind and road noise. The plush removable liner is comfortable, quiet and removable when you need to wash it. Light, safe and comfortable, the Shoei GT-Air meets and exceeds the needs of contemporary riders, allowing them to enjoy what they love most…the ride.

Aerodynamic Shell Design:

  • Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing and professional riders’ feedback
  • Multi-Piece EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation
  • Three shell and four EPS liner sizes provide increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes
  • Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift, as well as diminishes pressure on the rider’s neck while riding at speed

Sun Shield Visor System:

  • Built-in QSV-1 sun shield gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion
  • 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
  • Distortion-free shield blocks 99% of harmful UV rays
  • Forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, allowing the integrity of the GT-Air’s inner EPS liner to remain intact

Ventilation System:

  • Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior
  • Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance behind wind screens
  • Easy to operate large lower intake vent
  • Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation
  • The rear/neck vents allow for effective air exhaust
  • Breath guard and chin curtain included

Advanced Integrated Matrix (AIM):

  • High performance fiber materials are combined with elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra-lightweight, rigid and resilient

Interior System:

  • 3-D Max-Dry center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads
  • Chin curtain prevents wind entry and reduces noise
  • Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance
  • Eyeglass compatible interior
  • E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from the helmet of a rider involved in an accident, in turn making the Shoei GT-Air more easily removable

Standard Chin-Strap Clip:

  • Neatly secures chin strap

CNS-1 Shield System:

  • The CNS-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces
  • Includes Pinlock Anti-Fog Lens for more coverage of the CNS-1 shield
  • Dual-Ridge window bead increases contact with the shield to reduce wind noise
  • Scratch-resistant shield coating
  • 99.9% protection from harmful UV A&B rays

Safety Certification:

  • DOT-218

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, the GT-Air Helmet and other Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

Shoei GT-Air Inertia Helmet 4.6 5 482 482
very good helmet I'm using GT now for about a year and are overall very happy with it. Airflow is very good and so far it hasn't really fogged up at all. I also love the build in sun visor. Overall a very good helmet. September 21, 2015
Perfect if it were 1/2 the price I've owned 3 of these since they first came out. I wear a L in Arai and Bell, but need a XL with fatter cheek pads with the GT-Air. Like all helmets, I buy an assortment of liners and cheek pads to get as good a fit as possible using factory components. Coming from top of the line racing Bells and Arais, the GT-Air was tons quieter which is to be expected when moving from a full race helmet to a Sport/ST helmet. I like the internal visor and the pin lock is dead-nuts clear sailing on cold mornings. Guys that say it don't work probably leave it in all the time. I've found you need to put it in only when needed. Here's a hint: Go online and pick up a tinted visor from Europe. They're pricey but I have a blue-mirrored visor and looks awesome and works beautifully in bright sun. The bonus is to drop the internal visor about an inch and it works well as a sun shade without darkening the road and traffic. The Sena bluetooth 10U for Shoei GT-Air as the perfect compliment for an integrated comm solution without having a big lumpy growth-looking flat-black knob on the side of your beautiful helmet. Hint: buy it on Amazon, it's $40 cheaper that elsewhere. Overall, this would be a perfect helmet if you:\ 1) get the correct size (too large-noisy) 2) buy the correct comfort liner and cheek pads 3) install a Sena 10U for Shoei GT-Air 4) Buy it on sale. The price is way too high for a DOT helmet CHEERS! September 21, 2015
Nice helmet This is a well-balanced and comfortable helmet with excellent features. I love the drop-down visor, it's really easy to use and blocks out the sun very well. It's also very appealing to the eye! Only complaint is that the cheek pads are a little tight and my jaw is sore after wearing it for awhile. So if you have a thick jaw, expect tightness. September 29, 2015
Wonderful styling, great fit and comfort, awesome... Although I am a newer rider and this being only my second helmet to ride with, I am totally impressed with the comfort and features. Excellent padding, ventilation, and with the flip down sun-shield, i would highly recommend. September 28, 2015
Great helmet! Great helmet... build quality a lot better than my last HJC CL10 helmet. It def feels like a $500 helmet. The large in HJC fits just as well as a large Shoei. The cheeckpads are brain sqeezinlgly tight right now after 10 hours and a growler sitting in it when off head, but Im confident it will loosen up. Airflow is alot more than the CL10, as road noise is reduced greatly also. The Sena 10u fits perfectly. Love my new helmet, wish it was a little bit less expensive. September 28, 2015
Bad air flow managment, fogs up and not a fan of the pin lock I have an Aria XD4 and bought this because I was planning on doing much more street riding. Compared to the XD4 this things fogs up like nobodies' business. Neither helmet design seems to account for people with glasses. This helmet comes with a rubber breath deflector that is supposed to help keep you breath off of the windscreen. It sort of works but forces your breath onto your glasses instantly fogging them up. On the XD4 I can crack the windscreen open a little to help with fogging ant this works fine on all but the coldest days. The pin lock on this helmet forces the windscreen open a minimum of about a 3/4in. I should be able to just crack open the windscreen. When I do this it seems like all of the wind hitting the front of the helmet gets sent directly into my eyes. There doesn't even seem like there is much difference in wind hitting your eyes if the windscreen is minimally open or fully open. The vents flat out suck. I notice very little air coming into the helmet riding city speeds and that is where I will be doing 90% of my riding. The XD4 is a much better designed helmet for the kind of riding I do. I just wish it came in better colors and graphics. The external visor on the XD4 adds a little noise but it actually works at blocking direct sun light and I need it most mornings. The tinted internal visor on this helmet works ok but sun glasses and a real external visor are a more practical solution. The XD4 is a better commuter helmet and the vents actually work, even on hot days at slower speeds. Maybe this helmet is better at highway speed but that makes it more or less useless to me. I will be returning it if possible. The only reason I even gave it 2 stars was because of the cool graphics and weight of the helmet. Other reviewers seem to live in much drier areas so the fogging may not be as much of an issue for them. I deal with it every morning and there seems to be a fair amount of biased brand loyalty and I think they rated it higher because they haven't tried any other brands. September 23, 2015
Very please with the Helmet...light, quiet and no buffeting Sooo I just got done putting about 150 miles on this brand new helmet. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. I've never owned a Shoei before...only ridden Arai for the last 20 years. While looking to upgrade my aged-out Arai Quantum/f, I was torn having to choose between my Arai brand loyalty (Defiant Pro Cruise) and the innovation of the internal sun shade (GT Air). I currently ride a Hyper and was looking for something that removes the whistle and wind buffeting I suffer with my Quantum design. I have found the solution in spades! FYI...both helmets fit snug...I have a 22 7/8" nugget, right on the cusp between Med and Large and went with Medium sizing. I think I will order the thinner Shoei cheek pads (31mm)...but will give the helmet a few more weeks to pack in before doing that. Performance: The GT Air feels very light. There is no buffeting, no whistling and no humming. It is much more quiet than my Quantum, but that's older technology so perhaps a poor comparison. The integrated shade is the s#*t. That single feature sold me on this helmet vs the Defiant. The wanderer graphic is very classy touch to finish off the looks of the GT Air. BL: I would recommend this helmet to anyone looking for an integrated visor for any type of riding, but especially upright adv/tour or naked bikes. September 23, 2015
would buy this helmet again Great fit, lightweight with wide field of view East fit for those with glasses Pinlock was easy to install Would appreciate a high visibility version that was not a graphic The safety yellow is not quite high visibility but it is easy to see having seen others in it as well Minimal to no head buffeting at legal speeds September 21, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
R O: Coming from a 10yo RF1000 Shoei and have been impressed with the quality so though I'd stay with what I know. The GTAir gets great reviews for SPORT Touring. I ride an FJR. Sep 30, 2015
Todd B: I'm initially trying this helmet based on a lot of the reviews. I've tried this helmet on along with Arai, Nolan, Scorpion, HJC, and Schuberth to name a few and this one seemed to fit the best. The Shoei Neotec also fit well but I'm not sure I'm read for a modular helmet yet. Here's hoping! Jun 20, 2015
Attn: Craig K: I chose this based largely on it's reputation for being quiet. I was not disappointed! Jun 2, 2015
Charles B: Color scheme, tinted visor mechanism and Shoei quality. Mar 14, 2015
M A: Because of all the good reviews, and I want a premiun helmet to replace my oid nexx xr1r.
It's not as quiet as I expected, but it feels very solid, and it's comfortable one you put your head in.

Monte M: Hello. I'm not sure about the Quest as I've never owned one but I do own the rf1100 & 1200, which both fit a little bigger than the GT Air. The GT Air is very snug even though it's the same size as my other Shoei helmets. Hope this helps. Jul 5, 2014
