Shoei GT-Air Helmet

Posted on: April 9th, 2013 by Road Rider MCA

The Shoei GT-Air ist the first and only Shoei full-face helmet with an internal, drop-down sun shield, but that’s not the only thing that sets it apart. Renowned for being incredibly quite and cutting through air with spot-on aerodynamics, the GT-Air is sport-touring perfection in a sleek package.

The GT-Air’s shell design is the product of exhaustive wind-tunnel research that has honed the quietest, most aerodynamic, and effectively ventilated helmet possible. It features the wide and tall, distortion-free CNS-1 shield, which blocks 99% of UV rays. The GT-Air is equipped with a Pinlock shield and visor, which is usually an optional upgrade. Pinlock is considered by many to be the most straightforward and comprehensive fog solution available. It works by trapping a small amount of air between your visor and the thin Pinlock insert.
