Customer Reviews for Shoei GT Air - Gloss Light Silver
This is my first 'premium' brand helmet. I have never had what I would call a quiet helmet, and although I still get some wind noise with the Shoei, it is much better. The ventilation is good and easy to use, as is the visor and sun visor. The whole thing just seems - well, quality.Read more
New to Shoei, not disappointed
Having had several Arai helmets in the past, this time I wanted something quieter. The standard features included on the Shoei GT-Air were the icing on the cake! First impressions were that the fit was slightly larger than Arai, but after much comparison and pulling and pushing I've concluded the helmet liner itself simply feels different. No better no worse. Importantly - comfortable enough to completely forget when your riding. So having just competed a 2000 mile trip, I'm really impressed - visor down the airflow over the helmet is smoother, so wind noise is down, less booming. Visor partially up (I'm liking the click-stop ratchet system keeping it secure even when overtaking etc) and again wind noise is down, with clean lines at the side of the helmet (i.e. no covers). That said, I did notice that having the visor up (more than 25%)did reduce flow to the top/centre air vent. So in warmer climates there's a trade-off with ventilation. The sun visor was perfect - easy to operate, optically perfect, and left me with an uninterrupted view of my dash, looking underneath the shaped lower edge - making reading any LCD displays easy. The chin guard and breath guard were just there - no issues, just contributing to my comfort in the background. This is only week 2 with this helmet, but I've worn it for several long days on the bike already and just forget about it. It definitely feels lighter on my head than my Arai. Lastly, I've fitted comms so have had the liner and cheek pads partially out - this was easy with click-in fittings, making for a secure refit. In conclusion, a quality product, and having ridden with it now - no doubts I made the right choice.Read more
Quiet and light
Light, quiet and stable. On my 1200RT the helmet is very stable at high motorway speeds. This was why I changed from an HJC RPHA ST. The Shoei is better in all areas, it is quieter with less of a "booming" sound when the screen is up. It is lighter on the head and shoulder checks are very easy due to the wide eye port. All in all, very happy.Read more
Pleased I have bought it
What an excellent piece of kit. It fits like an extra layer, it is not too heavy that your head feels lopsided, the sun visor is great and a welcome addition. The helmet is reasonably quiet but have noticed a few wind noises but then I haven't used the silicone yet so maybe that will be eradicated as well.Read more
