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

Shoei GT-Air Journey Helmet 4.6 5 537 537
Fantastic helmet It is pricey, but seems to be a fantastic helmet. I wear earplugs anyway, but it does seem pretty quiet. I like the integrated sun visor which eliminates the need for sunglasses and the PinLock visor operates nicely as well to allow for variable airflow. Airflow is key for me in Phoenix and I'm happy so far. Probably didn't need to pay the extra dough for the racing stripe, but it does look cool. May 22, 2016
What a great, great Helmet! I thought it was important to write a review beings there is alot of discrepancies regarding how this helmet fits. I have a larger some what round head. I was very skeptical on going by the Shoei size chart. According to shoei I am at the high end of XL. I called the Revzilla customer service and asked if I should go to the XXL size because I was close to the mesurment of XXL. The customer service rep assured me to stay with the Xl size. When I got the helmet the fit was spot on. A little tight going over the head but once on it feels great. I absolutly love this helmet. Air flow, visability, comfort, and overall quality are all 5 stars. I would buy this helmet again and again. Another bonus is my Sena intercom system fits great. It seems like the helmet was made to have the Sena installed in it. Highly recomend this helmet. May 13, 2016
Not for Me I have owned this helmet for a few months now. I am very torn on how to rate this helmet overall. The Good and not so bad: This helmet is very quiet. I thought my monster 821 was actually quiet until i cracked the visor open at a light. I can barely hear the bike run until i lean out far and get the engine sound back off the ground. I gauged how close i was to the ground in my old helmet by how loud the engine tone coming back at me was...That is not the case with this helmet. Road noise...other cars...my bike, all are drowned out pretty well. Wind noise isn't bad. Fit and comfort are great for me at least. My head fits in very snug. I'm not sure how my bluetooth will fit in this helmet for this reason. Not well is going to be my guess. The helmet isn't too small, just very snug. I gather the helmet is so quiet in part for how well it fits and insulates my head. Looks, I really love the way it looks. I own it in matte black solid. Matches my monster 821 dark pretty well. Features. The visor is easy to release and re secure with gloves on. No problems finding it, i like that there is no button or release, just a detent that is easy to use. The visor switch is also very easy to find and operate while in motion. The vents are equally as easy to find and adjust. Airflow. Not bad, I was expecting a little more to be honest with how large the intake looks. I find it to be average at best. My other helmet flows better. Its not awful but for the price point i imagined it to be much better. What I Don't Like: Ventilation. Not great while stopped. I have other helmets i don't feel compelled to crack open at every light i sit at for more than a few moments. I feel like i'm suffocating in this helmet at a stop when its above 70 degrees out. It's fairly humid a lot of the time in the area i live in, this helmet does not breathe as well as i would like. Its fine once you get going, but this is a serious issue for me. I don't have this problem with my other helmet. Fog. In piggy backing off the ventilation issue, the next big one is fog. It's terrible. A pin lock is pretty awesome, it keeps the visor totally fog free. Then you drop the shade down and its one big foggy mess inside the helmet. You have perfect vision right until you want to keep the sun out of your eyes. The drop down shade was one of the biggest reasons i purchased this helmet. it was the feature i was after the most and have been greatly let down by it. Between how much this helmet holds the heat /humidity and fogs up with the internal shade lowered...very disappointed. And for how much it costs, thats a very expensive disappointment. This has become my helmet i only use if i think i might stay out passed sun down. I prefer my other helmet to this one. I would definitely not purchase this item again and couldn't recommend it to other riders. May 12, 2016
Great Helmet - One exception This helmet lives up to the hype I read about and scoured reviews on. However I thought I should mention for people interested in the helmet and Shoei for future designs that the drop down sun visor NEEDS to be polarized. I have noticed very little benefit dropping the sun visor down when the sun is in my face - the visor actually creates a large area of glare. I rarely drop it down now unless it's just to cut down overall brightness when the sun in not directly in front of me... This is a fix that needs quick attention - especially for a helmet at this price. May 11, 2016
A bit pricey but definitely worth it! I've had two HJC helmets before this and I was tired of the quality so I decided to splurge and get this helmet. I'll never get anything but Shoei again. Yes, it was a but expensive but it more than pays off. I didn't want to have to worry about getting a tinted visor and switching it which is why I picked this one for the visor. I absolutely love it! The noise level is very low and the over all comfort is just incredible once the pads are worn in a few times. I'd recommend this over and over anytime! May 10, 2016
Excellent Helmet I've now had the Shoei Gt-Air helmet for about a month. I have already used it for commuting to and from work (about an hour each way) and for shorter trips. My first impression is how plush this helmet feels. My previous helmet is a Nolan N44, which is a good helmet, but the Gt-Air has such great features and comfort that the Nolan may now be permanently retired to my closet. I tend to get a claustrophobic feel from a lot of helmets but have not had this issue with the gt-air, and the pads and liners are comfortable and snug, but not too tight. If you have a little more of a round face though, this helmet may not be for you (my husband tried it on and it did not fit him correctly at all, for him the Arai fits his more rounded face much better). I was used to wind noise from my Nolan while riding but this helmet cuts that drastically to the point that you don't really need earplugs, although I still use them since my exhaust is extremely loud. One of my favorite things about this helmet is how well the air flows around it while riding, even at 70+ mph I can easily do a head check now without a ton a wind resistance. I've read a few reviews before purchasing this helmet that said the venting/air flow was not very good but I've had no issues. I live in Texas so even though I've only ridden with this helmet in April and early May, I've already used it on 90 degree afternoons and 55 degree mornings and have always had a good amount of airflow and comfort. The shield of this helmet is extremely clear, to the point that sometimes I forget its down when at a light. And the drop down visor is just as clear. I wasn't always comfortable riding with drop down visors as sometimes in other helmets it seemed to distort my vision but there is no problem at all with this helmet. The mechanism to use the drop down visor works smoothly and I haven't had any issue working it while riding and wearing my gloves. Graphics wise, I got the Cog helmet. I was a little worried it may be too much but wanted to see it in person and it is even more stunning in person. It looks like it has been airbrushed, very impressed that this is a standard graphic as it looks custom. The gears and metal paint are reflective. Already had several compliments on this graphic.

Good helmet but a bit noisy Overall I am pretty happy with this helmet. Did a lot of research before buying this one and had a pretty clear idea of what I was buying. I bought the helmet because I was looking for a good allround fit, something that looked good and had great safety scores. The helmet fits well, the visor locks very well, the vents work great and drop down sun visor does the trick. No complaints there. This is obviously a solid helmet. One minor issue is the air flow in my particular riding position. I ride a Harley and sit up straight. I thought I had read that this helmet was good for both a sport and touring position but in my experience the helmet is not perfect for when you are sitting up straight. Noise from air flow is way louder than when I tilt my head slightly in a downward facing angle but that makes for an uncomfortable riding position. It is not a huge issue and I would still recommend the helmet for all other features. May 4, 2016
Wow, What's not to like? Were do I start.... This is hands down the quietest, best constructed, and comfortable helmet I have ever owned. Yes it is expensive, but what better item to buy a quality product for than your head? Pros: Everything Cons: The only item I could see improvement was if the sun visor was a little longer.
