Shoei GT-Air Wanderer Helmet

SHOEI introduces the GT-Air, a lightweight full-face helmet with improved ventilation, a fully removable noise-reducing interior, a built-in sun visor and a distinctively stylish shell that is as good looking as it is integral to its performance while on the road.

Aerodynamic Shell Design:

  • Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel 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, helping allow for the integrity of the helmet’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 helmet 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 new redesigned 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, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

Shoei GT Air Wanderer Helmet 4.7 5 52 52
Great helmet with only one minor nitpick. Great helmet overall and great service by Revzilla. My only gripe is that being between sizes I went for a small as recommended, which fits my head perfectly, but the cheek pads were crazy tight. Having to purchase additional ones to tweak the fit in what was already a very expensive helmet was a little bothersome, but I'll bet I'm more the exception than the rule. April 10, 2014
Failed to Meet Expectation - My AGV was superior. I bought this to replace my AGV skyline. Frankly I think I assumed expensive = superior, when searching for helmets with an internal visor. Comfort, noise, style, are all inline with the AGV. My internal visor NEVER fogged with the AGV, nor did I need to pinlock for the external visor, whereas the SHOEI is terrible with fog on cool days. The visor toggle on the AGV is also smoother and easier to use with gloves than the SHOEI. Thus far, one pro of the SHOEI is that the cheek pads haven't come loose, though I don't think the AGV did that either for the first year. April 4, 2014
Quiet, Stripey Goodness Full disclosure: Offset/asymmetrical stripes are kind of a thing with me. I'm a sucker, sure, but this helmet is a stunner. Clean, classic, professional, yet just a bit on the cafe/sport side. My previous helmet is an HJC IS-Max-BT modular. There's no comparison. The Shoei is so much quieter. The head shape is more intermediate oval, so the pinch point at the front of my forehead is gone. I'll echo some of the other reviewers and agree that out of the box cheek-pad sizing is really on the snug side, but I'm going to give it a few weeks to break in before passing judgment too harshly. Vents are easy to manipulate, as is the sun visor. Very happy with the purchase. No regrets. April 1, 2014
Extra money equals extra features Previously I was using a $200-$300 Bell helmet which seemed fine. However, I decided I wanted the feature of the internal sunscreen and wanted a safer and quieter helmet. In addition, since I don't have a windscreen, I felt an aerodynamic helmet would be helpful to avoid wind buffeting. So I bought this helmet and it has perfomed excellent, better than expected, on all counts. I'm very happy with it. This helmet proves the adage, you get what you pay for. March 26, 2014
expensive helmet with few options I like shoei helmets for their fit and reputation when it comes to safety. I tried getting another brand and ended up taking it back because it just didn't feel the way a shoei does. I was pretty excited about getting a slightly styled helmet that appears to be a high end model, based on price and other features listed. however after receiving the helmet, buyers remorse quickly set in. I still feel the helmet is great as far as safety is concerned, but for the price (~$600) theres no options for tinted shield, the graphics aren't as engaging as I hoped, the air noise is very noticeable, you NEED the pin lock because it fogs sooo easily. Just overall not happy with spending that much on a helmet and feeling like I'm stuck with it March 17, 2014
Amazing helmet the style is designed perfect and really catches the eyes on bystanders, and has a true professional look. while at the same time as looking good it also preforms great, super comfortable helmet and quiet. The best feature in my eyes is the adjustable sun visor March 13, 2014
Amazing helmet This is a great helmet. Very light & comfortable. The sun visor feature is excellent. February 23, 2014
Another Great Shoei Helmet For those of you that are on the fence with regards to sizing.. Go with the size you normally get in a Shoei. The only difference I could tell is in the checkpads, they are definitely a tighter fit than previous models, however they will break-in with use. If you go with one size up, the helmet will be too big and therefore be unsafe. You can always purchase the smaller check pads if you have to. When I first got mine I said "NO WAY" but after riding a few times I noticed the helmet was already starting to fit better. I'm glad I listened to what some of the other riders said and went with the size I normally get in a Shoei. Everything else is typical Shoei, you won't be disappointed. My only gripe is the racheting system on the shield is not as smooth as some of the other models, but hopefully it too will break-in with time. Remember, a good helmet is like buying a pair of boots, they may not fit perfect at first, but once you break them in, you won't want to give them up. Just FYI I am a solid medium in a Shoei, and I wear a 7 1/8 hat size. February 23, 2014

T H: Best overall touring, sports helmet on the market. Shoei name, attention to detail, internal sun visor, pin lock system, excellent padding and safety rating (DOT). The color scheme is completely beautiful (compared with Solid), and fits the bike perfectly. Aug 12, 2013
Richard P asked: I'm looking to purchase this helmet pretty soon. I'm an intermediate oval at 21 3/4 which puts me in a SM (21 5/8 on the small end). However, I was wondering if it would be better to pick up an XS (21 1/4 on the large end) to allow for break in or should I just go with the SM? I was told to try the XS first and go from there, but I'm hoping someone has had personal experience with being close to different sizes. Sep 23, 2013

Matthew C: I too am an intermediate oval and measured a L at 23 1/2. I originally bought a L helmet (my first Shoei) and found it fit ok but felt it was going become too loose once it broke in. I wore it for a week or so around the house and then finally decided to opt for the smaller size.

After dropping down to a M, I could not be happier. It was tight in the beginning but after break-in it's the perfect amount of snug. I first thought I may need to change to a smaller cheekpad size before it broke-in but have since reconsidered and after clocking over 5K miles of ride time, I am glad I went to the M.

NOEL C: Hi Richard P

Good day, let me tell you that this product has great quality and is very cool!!! if you are thinking of a SM size I recommend you choose a size slightly greater because these helmets in this brand come in a little small measurement.... I ordered a XS and had to change it to a SM, and yet, I feel it pretty tight, but I like to use it in a tight snug fit because I'm not so tall and the large Shell helmets hinder your movements!!!

luck with your purchase!!!

Mityo S: The fitting of this helmet is pretty small....I usually wear M in other helmets but for the GT Air I've chosen size L and I it's still pretty snug after 1 month of occasional use. Still hoping that it will break in a little more...Definitely go a sizer larger!!! Sep 23, 2013
Reply to Mityo Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael S: I'd go with the SM first and maybe see about getting larger cheek pads to get it right. Tough call but for me 1/4 in too big is better than 1/2 in too small. Sep 24, 2013

A shopper asked: Would you be concerned that the GT Air is AIM and not AIM+? I really want this helmet but if I am going to pay this much for it, I am afraid they are going to come out with an updated version with AIM+ in a month and I am going to be frustrated. Feb 13, 2014

Peter N: The GT-Air is AIM not AIM plus like the X-twelve and new RF-1200
Not sure the quality is any less and the most important factor is how it fits you.
Also not SNELL certified probably because of the internal sun visor

A S asked: Should I be concerned that the GT Air shell is AIM and not AIM+? I really want this helmet, but if I am paying this much for it I want to make sure I am getting the best. Also, I think I read something about the liner not being quite as good as the RF 1200? Any thoughts? Feb 13, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alvin C: I feel very secure about the AIM shell. It feels solid, much more than the other helmets I've used over 10 years (Lazer, Suomy) and it helps in noise reduction. The helmet feels a little heavier than the other helmet shells by other brands that I've used (which, though light, feels slightly hollow in comparison). I have never worn an Arai, so I cannot compare this to Arai but I would definitely buy Shoei again for the rest of my riding life (in fact, I've the J-Cruise and bought the Neo-Tec for my pillion). For the inner lining, I have no issues - very comfortable and little maintenance needed in terms of washing - use an inner lining for the head/face or a balaclava. I did not try the RF1200 so I cannot comment. I use the GT-Air for daily commuting as well as on the track. Feb 15, 2014

John R: I love the helmet. No problems. Best helmet I have owned or purchased. I have had it for a year now. Feb 13, 2014
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Trent S: the difference between AIM and AIM+ is an additional layer of "Special Fibers" per Shoei. Do some research on line regarding different reports on helmet safety and come up with your own conclusion, there's a lot of info out there, and not all of it points in the same direction. The quality of liner in the GT Air is excellent and the features the GT Air provides over the RF 1200 were important to me when I chose it. The retractable sun visor is great, and the convenience of being able to flip a lever to shade your eyes while moving is outstanding. I've always had excellent service from Shoei helmets, the GT Air replaced a X-11. You won't go wrong with this helmet and I was equally satisfied with the customer service of Revzilla. Feb 18, 2014

RevZilla: The sunvisor is indeed removable. To replace it, you would need the Shoei QSV-1 Sun Visor (part number 890056).

A shopper asked: I am a little uncertain based on the videos. Is this helmet designed for long distance riding in the upright? How does the sound compair to my scheuberth C3 Feb 17, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The GT Air is certainly geared towards long distance touring - with a big nod to ventilation (that's why "Air" is in the name). As experiences teaches us, if you have more ventilation, you have more noise. It's tough to say anything with certainty at this point since we haven't ridden in the GT-Air, but my guess is that the Shoei will be cooler than your C3, at the cost of some peace and quiet.
