The helmet speaks for itself, for riding a street fighter motorcycle is excellent. Mostly the review has to go out to the staff at Leeds , the words that come to mind is Exceptional!! Talk about customer service .. absolutely WOW!!!Read more
I researched many lids and ended up at Shoei's door, glad I did its a nice comfy and good fit ,just the right amount of bling graphics wise not too busy and over the top ,and not plain,it has a quality feel ,chin guard stays in ,unlike a lot of others ,and its quiet. Internal sun visor is easy to get at, not hard to open a vent when you need to. It came nicely packaged and protected, which inspires confidence in future purchases, but as usual I've never had a problem with Sportbikeshop .HappyRead more
I do a lot of miles and go through a lot of kit, this is the best helmet I've had in a long time. It's quite, comfortable and, well made. The ventilation is well placed and easy to use, as is the internal sun visor slider. It has a nice plush lining without making it too sweaty on hot days. Very quite and stable at motorway speeds so I don't have to bother with earplugs anymore. Honestly cannot fault it in any way.Read more
I bought this for my wife its her second GT Air she loves her Shoei helmets this one has quality graphics, as usual excellent service from yourselves, thanks.Read more
I find it quite quiet and very comfortable. It's light and the sun visor is an excellent added bonus so no need for sunglasses. I have been wearing it with a silk hood underneath to cover my neck and keep my headphones in. Not ready yet to shell out another £200+ for the Sena bluetooth system which is custom made for this helmet. The pinlock is brilliant but the sunvisor will fog up so cracking the visor open now and then is still necessary (or get an anti-fog spray).Read more
An ok helmet.
A good quality, but certainly not worth the £509 list price. Luckily I bought it with the 30% discount on offer at the time. Fit is very good, but not, if like me, you wear glasses. My old HJC was more comfortable with glasses, and was a lot cheaper.Read more
Very nice helmet!
I've had my Shoei XR-1100 for about 7 years now and I thought it´s time for a new one. I have tested Shoei NXR and Shoei GT-Air.I felt that NXR pressed too much against my forehead and then I tried the GT-Air and it felt much better against my forehead and around my head as well. So I bought GT Air Fable. I haven't tested it on the road yet but I think it´s going to be perfect. I highly recommend this helmet.Read more
Loving this lid!!
This is my 3rd Shoei helmet and as soon as you get it in your hands you can recognise the usual great build quality. The removable and washable inserts are comfortable and feel snug without being overly tight. The visor mechanism is spot on as usual and the internal sun visor feels solid and the mechanism is easy to use with winter gloves. The fact it comes with a pin-lock insert is great and on the cold mornings it has been nice to be able to keep the visor locked down without misting. (my last helmet I never put one in for some reason, so is nice to be fog free and not having to let rain through a gap in the visor). I have found the helmet very quiet at motorway speeds, although at just the right angle there is a whistle from the top vent, but its not loud and does not happen very often. Havent tried this in warm conditions, so unsure how good the air-flow will be in the summer, but so far I really do love this helmet.Read more

The Shoei helmet brand has always been at the forefront of motorcycle helmet technology since its creation, and continues to lead in terms of technical innovation, design, and safety. With over 50 years experience, they continue to manufacture the entire Shoei helmet range in Japan to this very day.

Shoei develop all of their bike helmets with a specific philosophy in mind which they call the Shoei Safety Concept. The thinking behind their philosophy is that crash helmets must be developed to ensure maximum head protection, whilst also providing unrivalled levels of comfort. Ultimately, Shoei believe that a relaxed ride provided through comfort makes a highly important contribution to the rider's safety. The safety elements of each bike helmet come under one of two headings, Passive or Active Safety. Passive safety includes focus on such elements as impact absorption and material rigidity whilst active safety refers to emphasis on ventilation, fit and noise reduction. Shoei are now, truly, one of the most popular and most highly rated helmet brands in the world.See all Shoei products…
