Shoei GT Air Journey 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

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

Shoei GT-Air Journey Helmet 4.6 5 558 558
A quality helmet that is snug fitting and light. This is a perfect fitting helmet for me. It is snug, but not a tight fit nor uncomfortable.....also it still needs to be broken in. According to Revzilla's size table, my measurements were just below the recommended "medium" category. I followed the advice of the Revzilla sales agent and bought a medium which fits me well. I also have another Shoei (Neotec) that is a medium. The GT Air actually feels a little lighter than the Neotec (although the measurable weight of the two are very close....less than 1/4 lb) I was hoping for stronger ventilation from the top of the helmet, but then I ride with a tall windscreen on both my motorcycle and scooter. Overall, the ventilation isn't much different between the GT Air and the Neotec. The helmet is well made and I'm glad I spent a little more for the Journey graphics., I felt that the solid colors were drab (particularly the white) and I wanted a lighter colored helmet to reduce heat build-up in the summer. The graphics with predominant white on the Journey is perfect. I received my order quickly from Revzilla. July 13, 2016
Shoei GT Air Very quiet - the best sealing helmet I have ever had. Definitely keeps noise and noisy air out. I ordered the 31 mm cheek pieces...still a little tight on the cheeks...there is a point in the helmet in front of the center of the cheek. I would have though for the price there would have been more options for cheek pieces...and the cheek pieces are expensive. The ear speakers were easy to install. I selected this helmet for the built in sun visor...I have quite a collection of visors for my older Shoei that I had to take with me when I traveled - prefer 1 built in visor. July 26, 2016
Expensive helmet, but a good one Purchased this because it fit more comfortably than my previous one, and because I wanted an integrated sun visor. My older helmet was fairly noisy, but this one is noticeably quieter and the sun visor is great. No complaints, except for the higher price tag. July 26, 2016
Awesome in every way! This is my first helmet from shoei and I have to say that I love it. Great fit, comfortable, great field of view, and flows a ton of air. Was hesitant because of the price at first, but soon realized after wearing it that it was well worth the money. On top of all of that it looks great too! July 26, 2016
I love the sun visor The helmet is very comfortable once I get my ears straightened out. The helmet is a little snug when I put it on and it folds my ears over. Once I grab the front of the helmet and kind of roll it around my ears flip back and then the helmet is comfortable. I thought about going to the next larger size but as I stated, once I get my ears straightened out the helmet is fine. I have only driven about 500 or 600 miles with my new helmet so far. I haven't taken any long rides yet (one hour commutes to and from work) so I will update my review once I have ridden for several hours straight. I'm hoping once the helmet gets broke in a little more, the ear problem will go away. I absolutely love the flip down sun visor. I ride to work in the early morning heading straight into the sun. Comfortable and beautiful, you can't go wrong with Shoei. July 20, 2016
Shoei does it right! I have been a long-time user of Shoei helmets. I rode with the RF900 for years and it was (past) time for an upgrade. I considered the RF1200, but opted for the Shoei Air for its internal sun visor. This has been a great added feature. The visor is nice and dark and goes over my glasses without issue. I also like the pin-lock feature, though it doesn't stop my glasses from fogging up. The air flow is less than I expected, but only marginally so. The vents are easy to operate and offer multi-position openings. My only critique of this helmet is that the first click up on the visor is too high to leave open when in stop and go traffic. My old helmet had a toggle prop to keep it open only a few centimeters. I have installed the Sena 10 communicator in the helmet and it fit like a glove. The ear pockets were deep enough to facilitate the speakers and still left room for my ears. Overall, I find this to be a superior helmet and worthy of the Shoei name. July 19, 2016
Great Helmet Da bomb! Very nice helmet. Fits my XXL cranium quite well. Wasn't sure about the drop down sun visor but when I ordered, but I really like it, and was pleased not to have to ride with sunglasses. Air flow was magical. Field of vision is also very good. Shield is a little stiff but that's always been my experience with Shoei. Sunvisor easy to flip up & down. Tried an XXL Bell and found it to be a little too snug. Shoei was on the money for me. Like the look and it's the most quiet helmet I've every had. July 15, 2016
By far the best sport-touring helmet I had I ride a z800 which is more of a semi upright position and was looking for a long distance helmet and the GT-Air ticks every box Inner sun visor so I don't have to swap visor or wear sunglasses Comes with Pinlock which is very important in colder weather Recessed ear area for bluetooth so that speakers doesn't constantly rub my ears Tons of vents for warm weather Aerodynamic during high speed The helmet feels substantially light to avoid fatigue during long rides It sits higher in the back so it doesn't rub against my riding jacket And last, it offers good view for upright riding position. The helmet does buffet over 100 mph but probably it's more due to my bike's lack of wind protection and at over 120 mph I have to stick my head on the tank to avoid buffeting. No more head shake when I stick my head on the tank but I have to shut my mouth vent because the wind keep pushing my lips Wind noise is absent during low speed and I can enjoy music from my bluetooth clearly, but just like any helmet there is no cure for wind noise during high speed except for earplugs. Overall I am absolutely satisfied with the helmet but just one gripe, the visor feels hard to open let alone cracking slightly for additional vents. I have to force to open it which can be a hassle during rides. However, I do feel that the harder it is to open the visor the more protected I become especially during the unwanted happens July 12, 2016
