Shoei GT Air - Bounce TC-1
Customer Product Reviews
I haven't had chance to go out with it yet but the build quality is fantastic. It's light, fits wonderfully and the lining removes easily to fit my Cardo. I'll add more when I actually tide out with it. Folks at the shop were great. I ordered about six helmets in to try and everyone was really helpful!
Classy looking and so light
As soon as I put this helmet on I was amazed how light it felt. The air vents work a dream and with the pin lock system for the visor the problem with misting is eradicated. The drop down internal sun visor not only makes you look cool but works a treat. Most of all the helmets graphics look fantastic.
Another Great Shoei Helmet
This is my second Shoei GT Air, I'm still using the first one which is only two years old and fitted with the Sena 10U GT Air Intercom system, and as the this range is being discontinued I bought this one so that when it comes time to change I'll simply fit my current Sena system in this one. Works out a lot cheaper than updating to a GT Air 2 and another expensive Sena system. Both the helmet and intercom systems are excellent btw. :)
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.
