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 5 569 569
Love This Helmet I was in Europe on a long work trip and I decided to rent a motorcycle, but I didn't have my RF1200 with me so I decided to splurge on the GT-AIR. WOW, I just can't say enough good things about this helmet. It's so much nicer than the RF1200 in every way. Quieter, more comfortable, the sun visor is great, and the air flow is fantastic. August 24, 2016
Love my Shoei I recently purchased the Shoei GT-Air Expanse (Red/White/Green...best color, sorry Anthony) helmet and love it. You get the quality & protection you expect out of a Shoei. I love the looks, style, feel, and comfort from this helmet. The pop down visor feature is great. Something I was unsure of before purchasing, but it really is a great feature. The only issue I have/had about this helmet is the fact that it does not carry the Snell certification. For some people this is a deal breaker. I decided to take a chance after some additional research on Snell vs. DOT certification and decided it wasn't a deal breaker after everything was said and done (or researched and done?). I also purchased this helmet knowing I was planning on buying a Sena 10U, which fits great, works great, and looks great on this helmet. Overall a great helmet and I don't think anyone would be disappointed by purchasing. August 24, 2016
A+ This helmet is A+ across the board. The colors, the design, the comfort, the durability... everything on this helmet just so awesome. August 23, 2016
Great helmet This helmet fits great and provides excellent protection. The air flow could be better, particularly across the inside of the visor since it has a tendency to fog even with the nose-piece in place and all vents open. Also, the paint is fairly brittle and mine has chipped in a couple of places simply from being bumped by the helmet of my passenger. Overall, I love it! August 22, 2016
Larger sizes don't "Break-in" as stated in the review In the video review it is recommended that if you are between sizes you should purchase the smaller size because the helmet will break-in about 10%. This may be true of the smaller sizes, which use thicker cheek and top padding, but it doesn't seem to be the case of the 2XL. I'm right in the dead-spot between the 2XL and the 3XL so I ordered the 2XL assuming that it would loosen up a bit. After using the helmet for a couple of months I can say that it is still just as tight as when I first put it on. I think this is because the padding is all very thin on this particular size of helmet. I think it's a great helmet but I suspect I'll have to spend $$$ replacing it with the proper size after wearing it for as long as I have. August 11, 2016
Best helmet yet I had a slightly bigger HJC CL-17 and after losing some weight needed a new lid. My head is rounder than the "Shoei" fit so I had to purchase some cheek pads (XL cheek pads are interchangeable) and after those, this fits great. If the rim around your forehead fits and the cheeks are too tight, I suggest this modification. With the zilla bucks it's only $20 more and a great adjustment. The noise level is really quiet if you use the chin skirt and amazing air flow without it but slightly louder. I'm extremely happy with this lid, even at 100 mph I can turn my head without any wind pull so the aerodynamics are killer. August 9, 2016
Great Helmet Overall I really wanted a great helmet with a drop down sun visor. The Shoei GT-Air fit the bill. Love Shoei helmets! My previous helmet was an RF-1100, which I thought was a little more comfortable. Overall, I feel like the RF-1100 has a better fit and finish to it. The liner material in the GT-Air doesn't seem as nice, but it is close. If it had the comfort of the RF-1100 I would have given it 5 stars. I'm not saying the GT-Air is uncomfortable, just not quite as nice as the RF-1100. The GT-Air does have thicker foam, so +1 for safety. The drop down sun visor is fantastic. Easy to work with gloves on. Easy to find, even with my Sena 10C sitting under it. Unlike the amazing pinlock visor, the sun visor can and does fog up from time to time. I've never had a pinlock visor before and I'll never have another helmet without it! Awesome technology! The pinlock visor and the drop-down sun visor push this helmet to the top on my personally owned helmets list. August 4, 2016
Shoei Very good helmet for the price your paying. Very comfortable, stylish, the built in sun visor is very nice. August 2, 2016
