Shoei GT Air - Bounce TC-1
Customer Product Reviews
Now own 2 gt airs, tried a Bell Star but can't beat shoei for comfort and quality, and the integral sun visor is an excellent feature. It's not the quietest helmet ( I take the chin curtain out which might not help ) and strangely there is no slightly open visor position. Nevertheless, with the discount voucher from SBS this was an irresistible bargain. I drove to Leeds to get this as it was the last size XL in the country. First time not mail order, great personal service In shop. I'd recommend SBS to anyone. My only worry with the helmet is replacement time.... looks like Shoei are dropping the double d fastener .
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 .Happy
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.
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.
Usual Shoei excellent quality, comfortable fit, low wind noise helped with the chin curtain. Pinlock visor is included and with the added bonus of the flip up dark visor. I'm really pleased with the helmet and especially with the huge discount offered by Sportsbikeshop. Many thanks.
Excellent fit, high quality helmet
I was hunting for my first helmet, started with a very optimistic £120 budget. I wanted a safe, great looking helmet with drop down sun visor. The only reason why I gave 4 star, as it is only Sharp 3 star. Due this, I have sent it back and upgraded to a Gt Air 2, hopefully the rating on that will be better! :)
Can't express just how happy I am with this lid. So quiet and resists the wind so well Only minor issue I have is the shell size is quite big but it's a small price to pay for such a light weight and quality helmet Brilliant service from sports bike shop as well and a great price.
So easy to operate air vents ,open and close visor including sun visor with your gloves on,i also find it very quiet compared to my previous helmet this is a top quality helmet at a very low price If you're thinking about buying this helmet then hit the buy button before they are all gone you wont be disappointed.
