Shoei GT-Air Expanse 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 Expanse Helmet Runs small...Maybe order on size up
It's a great looking helmet! It matches my CBR paint scheme perfectly. But must importantly is the fit and safety rating of the helmet. My head-size is on the border of size small to med. I ordered a small just to ensure a snug fit. When I tried it on for the first time I thought my head was going to explode! It was very snug, more so then I've ever experienced with a Shoei in times past. I had to exchange the check pad set with Shoei to the thinner set, also I purchased the thinner top crown pad. After I installed these pads in place the helmet fit glove-like without the extreme head-popping pressure. Just be forewarned, this helmet does run smaller then older model Shoei's.

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.

Great Helmet but a little tight when putting it on
My overall impression of the helmet is very good. The vents are awesome and they are easy to open and close while you're riding wearing gloves. The helmet is also quiet, more so than my RF-1200. My personal downside to this helmet is that it is very tight fitting as you put it on. I have to wiggle the helmet and turn my head from side to side once I have it on in order to unfold my earlobes.

Favorite helmet - ever
I tried all the high-end helmets and liked the GT-air the best out of the lot. It does run small and ended up ordered an XL, while I normally wear a LG. I also added a little extra padding in the top and it now fits perfectly. Glad I got the Expanse, red, green, white one. Complements my Ducati MTSE very well.

Wow. Totally Impressed. Quiet, high quality.
For comparison, I owned a RF1000 since 2007. Used if for 3 years, retired from riding for 8 years and bought a bike again recently. I have a 42mi commute mostly highway with a CBR300R sportbike. To be fair, I also started usign a tank bag at the same time, so aerodynamics could have changed, so might need to amend the review after I take it off.

Pros
Really, really quiet. Like I'm going 15mph slower or have a taller windscreen. SO quiet my stock exhaust sounds great can really hear the induction noise that makes the little single sound like a sportbike.
Stability/turbulence - huge different especially following other cars.
Excellent quality, you get what you pay for.
Really like the bright red and white color scheme. Not boring, high visibility without being high viz yellow and still matches the bike.
Internal visor is smooth operation and large coverage. Could be darker.

Negative
Screen fogs up easier (haven't installed pinlock yet) than my RF1000. Could be the tank bag though.
Lower detent is a little high.
The neck padding that makes it quiet, makes it harder to get on, but I'll take it.

Fit seems about the same as my RF1000.... just not broken in yet. I would advise against going up one size. Nothing is worse than a loose fitting oversized helmet once broken in. Actually I suspect that those with noise issues, went one size too big. Neck needs to be snug and totally gap free aroudn hte sides where turbulence creates most of hte noise and sounds reaches your ears.

Shoei is simply the BEST
Ordered this helmet on Closeout and even then it is the priciest helmet I have have purchased. But in this case I figured that my head is worth more than 500 bucks. As others have mentioned it is one Shoei Helmet that runs a bit small compared to let say even the Neotec. I tried both on in a store and the Neotec fit perfectly in XL but the GT-Air uncomfortably tight in XL. Tried on an XXL and it fit like a glove. The Quality is First Rate. I really wanted to buy the Neotec but at close to $200 dollars more it was a no brainer to buy the GT-Air Expanse in Red and Black. Great color but not my first choice. I have a Matte Black and Kawa Green Vulcan S Cafe and really wanted a helmet to match but it wasn't available in my size. The helmet itself is super light and very quiet. I was wearing an inexpensive HJC CL-17 and there is no comparison. The HJC feels like a brick compared to the Shoei and I didn't realize how much noise it lets in until I was riding with my Shoei. Day and Night difference. Field of vision is also way better and the pull down visor is a nice touch which safes me from wearing sun glasses or switching to a tinted visor. Airflow is very good to exceptional and with the Pinlock insert in place there is no fogging at all. Well, to be honest the pull down visor does fog up a little but only on very cold or humid days. I will be adding a Sena 30k in a couple of weeks and it should be easy with the ear cut outs for speakers. Seems Shoei thought of everything when designing this helmet. Comfort, Style, form and function. Bravo Shoei, Bravo!

Be careful with sizing!
I'm a big fan of Shoei helmets, especially the GT-Air because of the internal sliding sunscreen visor. Additionally the helmet has good sound protection from wind noise (although I don't recommend riding without ear plugs at highway speed), excellent visibility, and the pinlock visor layer actually does a great job at eliminating fogging (compared to a Shoei Qwest helmet without pinlock). I love the graphics on my GT-Air Expanse (red and black). However, the main reason for this review is to warn you about the sizing. I bought the GT-Air Expanse in XL thinking it would fit just like my GT-Air (standard/solid color)--wow, was I wrong. An XL in the GT-Air Expanse is basically one whole size smaller than the same size in the standard (solid color) GT-Air. So if you wear an XL in the standard GT-Air I recommend you get XXL for the GT-Air Expanse. What is the point of standardized sizing if you can't even get the same sized helmet in the same model from the same manufacturer just with different graphics? Unfortunately I removed all the labels and packaging and put the helmet together before realizing that the sizing was completely off so I'm going to have to live with the manufacturer's error. Hope this helps you get the proper size!

GT-Air is flowing
I have been using this helmet now for about 3 months. I have used it in varying temps from 40-90 degrees. The airflow of this helmet is fantastic. I previously had a Shoei X-11 that I felt had great airflow, the GT-Air may be slightly better in terms of airflow.

Moving from the X-11 to the GT-Air there are some subtle differences that I had to get used to. First, the mechanism that is used to hold the end of the chin strap to the buckle is completely different. In the grand scheme of things it isn't a big deal, but it took a few weeks to really get used to the new clipping mechanism. The other big difference is on my X-11 I could crack open my visor about an 1/8" and it would stay there, on the GT-Air the minimum you can open it is nearly an inch. When the visor is cracked on the GT-Air the air flow seems to hit me right in the eyes, luckily the air flow in the helmet is good enough that I really don't need the visor cracked.

Now, the real reason I bought the GT-Air was the integrated dark visor. First impressions, I would never buy another helmet that didn't have it. I ride to work early and as I'm travelling I go through sections that have shade from trees that I really don't need a tinted visor, so this helmet is great I can easily switch between the tinted and clear visor quickly. The one downside that I have noticed is that the tinted visor tends to develop a haze on it that clouds your view. If you regularly clean the tinted visor its not and issue, but cleaning it isn't nearly as easy as cleaning the main visor.

In summary, overall love the helmet, it has great air flow and the tinted integrated visor is fantastic except for its propensity to develop a haze and how difficult it is to clean.

does it have a roam if i put my bluetooth sena S20?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. The sena's antenna is a little close to the sun shield control but it will get by.
How reflective is this color scheme? In the video review for the Dauntless Anthony mentions the reflectivity of piping/stripes quite a bit. Does this Expanse in Red/Black/White have this feature or other reflective elements.
Paul C on Feb 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought the Red/White with the green accents. the silver accents might be reflective, but they are not very large. But the white red contracts should draw your eye, being so unnatural. One reason I got it. Not are striking as fluorescent orange or yellow, but should be better than black, silver or a more neutral or solid color.
Can I wear glasses with this helmet?
Perri S on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Perri, I purchased this helmet because I could wear my glasses with it comfortably. There is room inside the helmet so for me there is no ear pinching. I also have the anti-fog pin lock lense installed and my glasses do not touch or hit the visor. Also, I only wear my regular glasses with the helmet - no need to wear sunglasses anymore because of the drop-down internal sun visor. This is a great helmet! Cool with venting, speaker pockets to add a comm device and comfortable on my head and neck. Enjoy!
I currently own the GT Dauntless in blue and it is Awesome. Looking at the GT Air in red .. is the figment between the 2 helmets the same? .. Thanks
Brett U on Feb 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would say No. I have tried on a lot of different Shoei helmets before buying the GT Air and all of them I tried on fit me perfectly in Extra Large (XL) . The GT Air didn't fit me well in XL and I had to go up a size to XXL in order to make it fit. The Quest or the Neotec fit perfectly in XL. I had Shoei helmets in the past and the GT Air is the first helmet that I had to go up a size on.
