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.

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.

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.

No buyers remorse!
I don't know what shape of head I have, but I can tell you whatever it is, this is a great fitting helmet. Minimal buffetting, quiet, and extremely comfortable. The mouth vent could let through a bit more air and their is fogging, but no more/less than other helmets I've had.

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.
