Shoei GT Air - Fable
Customer Product Reviews
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.
Very comfortable crash helmet. Rode 300 miles in one day this week and there was no discomfort at all. I'm normally a size 60cm crash helmet, on account of my massive brain, and the 59/60 size was perfect. The top vent is very effective and all vents and visor controls can be operated easily with gloves on.
Always had AGV helmets in the past, but decided to splash out a little more that I would normally on the Shoei GT-Air. Best thing I could have done. Superior in every way, great build quality / fit / style / light weight etc... The drop down visor is very easy to see through (not distorted like others) and offers great protection from the sun (unlike others that are just lightly smoked) as well as being easy/smooth to operate. Noise in the helmet is also hugely reduced. Around great bit of kit - Shoei all the way from now on (sorry AGV, we had some good times), and would recommend product and service from Sportsbikeshop.co.uk. Free TCX boots are also spot on (I am a size 10 normally so ordered a 10.5 and they are nice and snug but comfy).
Best helmet yet
My first helmet ever was a Shoei, since then I've tried a few different brands, my latest was an AGV with internal sun visor which is one of the handiest features ever. But the build quality wasn't there so I came back to Shoei and what a difference. It's an expensive helmet. But it really feels like you are wearing a top grade piece of equipment everything from the positive last clunk when the visor shuts down to the pure plushness off the padding it seems a level above the rest. It's a fairly quiet lid, nice aerodynamics which create minimum buffeting even at speed. There is a good through flow of air if you choose there to be. 5*
Great helmet and really comfortable. Went for white to be more visible but also love the design. Drop down visor works well but does fog up easy. Stable and quiet at speed even on a naked bike. Removable ear pads with indents in the helmet make it perfect for using a Bluetooth communicator. Only negative would be that the visor can be quite stiff/hard to open especially with one hand.
The best helmet I've ever owned by far. Beautifully made, stunning design, looks great. Very comfortable and light but a good snug fit, Pinlock visor gives great vision and easy to use the vents with gloves on. Haven't used the sun visor yet but great to have it and this is a very quiet helmet. Don't think about it just buy one you won't regret it.
Shoei and Sportsbikeshop do it again
Another excellent Shoei product. Great fit and comfort straight from the start. Love the style and paint job. Expensive? Yes but worth it - even better value with the extras included by Sportsbikeshop - Thanks guys for the excellent fast service as usual.
Super helmet, fantastic service
Lightweight, fantastic quality, easy to use vents and visor with 'gloved' hands. As soon as I put this on I felt it was a high quality helmet. I've worn Arai for the past 15 years but was really disappointed with the quality of the last one I bought (especially because the high price should reflect quality). However I feel the Shoei GT AIR does tick all the boxes. I tried it on in a store first and then ordered the same helmet (but with the bonus of a cool design at a sale price) from Sportsbikeshop - who as ever were fantastic, quick delivery, robust, safe packaging; all round super service!
