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 4.8 5 24 24
Shoei GT-Air My old helmet was about 8 years old and needed replacing. So I started the search for helmets. I tried on multiple brands and through reading countless reviews here and elsewhere I decided on the GT Air helmet. I've had the helmet for about a month now. The initial fit was quite snug. I wore an XL in my old helmet and continued with an XL with this one. I felt the cheek pads were pretty tight but over the last few weeks, the break in time allowed them to settle in. I doubt I'll have to order the small cheek pads. The helmet is fairly quiet. Much more so than my older helmet but then again I had multiple problems with my old one that let a lot of air in. With the face shield down, it's very quiet. No need for ear plugs right now. Airflow I would say is good with the top vent. Mediocre with the chin vent. With the top vent open, I can feel the air on the top of my forehead all the way back. It works well. With the chin vent, I can't really feel much in the way of airflow but my previous helmet wasn't gushing it in either. I lowered my windscreen on my GS which has helped a little more with the airflow. The helmet comes with the Pinlock antifog shield which I haven't put on yet. At speed, the shield remains fog free but at colder temps, the pinlock shield will be needed. They say you can keep the shield open slightly to allow more ventilation by not fully locking the shield but it's pretty minimal at best. Keeping the shield open at the first detent works well although it 's open about an inch. The noise when open is not all that bad and I notice decreases when you drop the integrated sun visor down. Btw, the sun visor is great. Darker than the previous one I had. No real need for sunglasses although I keep a pair on hand. Will give an update when I get more miles in it. Of note, the price is a bit much, but will see if you get what you pay for. July 14, 2015
Great Helmet, Looks even better in person Staying true to Shoei tradition this helmet is high quality and is worth every penny. The graphics on it are even better in person, the photos don't due it justice. One thing to keep in mind is that the helmet is on the snug side, (not uncomfortable though) especially when putting on or taking off. The built in pin-lock makes a world of difference on the chilly morning rides in Northern California. I definitely recommend this helmet! June 8, 2015
Great Helmet Fantastic ! ! The included pinlock is a great feature, and the helmet is very comfortable now that I bought the 31mm cheek pads. May 18, 2015
Nice! I switched from a Shoei Quest to this helmet. The airflow across the top of my head is fantastic. The airflow from the front "face" vent is not noticeable to me. The visor still fogs up. I haven't installed the pinlock shield yet, so I don't know if it would make a difference. It's easy to lift the visor up just slightly to let some air in if the visor fogs. There is a surprising amount of wind noise, but maybe that's just because most other noises are dampened so much more than the Quest helmet, so that's about all I hear now. The fit is narrow and long. I noticed the padding at the top of one of my ears by the end of the ride, but it wasn't bothersome. I love the built-in sun shield -- one of the main reasons I switched. There is still enough room to still wear my regular sunglasses on those bright mountain spring days with snow on the mountains and blinding glare. It's nice to have the option of 2 layers of sun protection. I haven't tested the protection or durability, so my rating is based on the condition of my last helmet after 3 years and the Shoei reputation. April 30, 2015
Comfortable, good fit, quiet. I've had a full day of riding with the helmet. It fits good, tight around the cheeks, but good. I can tell it's loosening up. I find it to be very comfortable. I like the vents, they are easy to operate with gloves. I've never felt air going through any vented helmet, but I do feel at least a little with this one. I like the very positive stops in the face shield. I always leave mine open, and I found that a couple of clicks down from fully open cuts the wind noise noticeably. The helmet is, however, pretty quiet. What noise there is, is not a roar, but on the soft side. I still wear earplugs anyway. I ride behind a BMW R1200RT windshield, so I don't get a lot of wind, and the helmet feels stable, no buffeting. The face shield is a pain to remove and replace, but I'll get used to it. I do feel my view is not as good as my old helmet when doing a head check. I notice it not at the sides, but in the lower viewing area, like 45 degrees. The helmet has a high quality look and feel, feels solid and compact. I recommend it, in fact a friend purchased the same helmet from Revzilla after seeing mine! March 25, 2015
Worthy Upgrade Coming from a 6 year old RF-1000 I expected some improvements, but nothing too earthshattering. The materials that makeup the helmet are all top quality as expect from Shoei. I have what I consider a pretty standard head shape and size and coming from another Shoei I wasn't surprised by any sizing differences. A large in the RF-1000 translated into a large in the GT Air. The helmet is snug in the cheek pads though. I don't feel pressure in the top of the head or any other areas of the helmet. The helmet comes with the chin skirt preinstalled and the neck roll area seems a little smaller in diameter than the RF-1000 opening. Let's just say that it's a deliberate act to put this helmet on. Unlike my RF-1000, this one requires a bit of effort, but not forceful effort. This snugness translates into a "tailored" fitting helmet that feels great once worn. The snugness, the chin apron, solid face shield closure and the wind tunnel aero testing all translate into a quiet helmet. If I had to quantify it, I would say 20% quieter than the RF-1000. The added plus is the balance and stability afford the helmet as a result of being aerodynamically shaped. Raising my head, lowering it or turning it side to side (especially in the 120+ degree range for the lane change look back) feels completely stable and controlled with no buffeting at all. The pin lock system is amazing at removing any possibility of fogging. The integrated visor is genius, but could be 1/4 to 1/2 inch lower to be perfect. Styling is a matter of taste, but I've never been let down by the fit and finish of a Shoei helmet. Top notch details all around. Buy with confidence! It's pricey, but your melon is worth it.

Excellent Helmet I have used this helmet for about a year. Its fit is very comfortable with some wind noise when everything is sealed but it still allows good audio with Bluetooth music going (Sena module) During the summer at temperatures of 100 degrees plus it did well with good ventilation. Had to crack the clear visor on the front with the inner (dark) visor down. This worked okay at speeds less then 50mph. At temperature down to 23 degrees it does very well with the chin skirt removed. With it installed it works to well by fogging the lens. even with the insert installed. The fit is tight around the cheeks so I purchased the smaller cheek pads. This will be the only negative as I think it should be included or at least exchanged for the price. Finally Its a purchase that I am very happy with and would recommend it. January 29, 2015
Great Helmet! Could do without the sun visor. The fit and finish of the helmet is outstanding. I have an Arai Profile I was using before I purchased the GT-Air and the GT-Air is as good or better than the Arai in craftsmanship and quality. The fit of the helmet is great. A little snug to get on, but perfect aster that. I was told I have a long oval head and the Arai Signet-Q would fit me best in a large, however the XL GT-Air fits perfectly. The helmet seems very quiet and it is easy to hear my music through my Bluetooth Intercom. The helmet has speaker cutouts and they were an excellent fit for my UClear speakers. With all the positives said about the build quality and overall design, I will not be buying another sun visor helmet. Before this helmet I usually wore sunglasses and open the face shield at low speed for ventilation. As sun visors became more popular in helmets, I have just been waiting for an excuse to get one and not have to wear or carry my sunglasses anymore. The problem is the sun visor is not tight enough on my face to leave the face shield open. It creates turbulence that irritates my eyes and the gap underneath puts a line in my field of vision when checking my blind spots. No more built-in sun visors for me, but this is a great helmet.

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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
