Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories welcome to our review of the all new Shoei GT Air Motorcycle helmet. This is a brand new helmet for 2013 from Shoei. It is actually the first full face shoei helmet that we've seen with an integrated internal sun-visor. So if your familiar with the Shoei Neotec that was released last year that is a modular helmet its gone over extremely well very popular modular helmet they brought over that same sun-shield design into a full faced helmet. So you guys who have been waiting for a high end full faced helmet from shoei helmets that has an internal sun-visor this is your motorcycle helmet. Now a couple of things to talk about with this internal sun-visor while were here , this is the only sun-visor that im aware of that is installed in a motorcycle helmet that actually meets the American National Standards Institutes rating for non prescription eye-wear. So that A.N.S.I standard that you might have seen on safety glasses and things like that , that actually guarantees that this is optically correct shield and its also guaranteed to be shatter proof and it has an anti scratch and anti fog coating on it .Its actually going to function very well as eye protection as well as being optically correct and not creating any kind of distortion or anything. I've actually been able to put about 20 miles on this helmet earlier today. This internal sun-shield is very clear , and its also very very convenient if you've never had a helmet with this type of system inside it it just makes it very convenient. So if your commuting or riding where the light conditions may change if you might go into a tunnel or under some tree coverage and you need to adjust for the light conditions . Its a simple slider switch on the side of this helmet, so the Gt-air helmet has this slider you just slide that forward or back to raise it up or down. Its very straight forward and easy to use and that tinting is just the right amount for bright sunny conditions and like i said for darker conditions you can raise it up out of the way and you have your clear face shield. Now if your familiar with the Shoei Neotec the modular helmet that is what introduced this system for Shoei last year, it went really well very very popular helmet.One thing Shoei helmets did very differently with the Neotec and they brought it over to this model there the GT Air helmet is rather then compromising on the thickness of the EPS liner(which is the foam on the inside of the helmet that is what actually absorbs impact) instead of taking away some of that thickness for that internal shield to retract what they've actually done is they built up the forehead area of this helmet shell and they have raised it up to allow for that a little bit of area a little bit of room inside that is needed for that internal visor to raise up out of the way without compromising the thickness of the EPS liner. So its not going to compromise on the safety of the motorcycle helmet. You have the same integral shell design here the EPS liner is not compromised on thickness. If i actually turn the helmet sideways you can actually see where that ridge is , the raised portion that that internal visor can move up and out of the way without compromising on the safety of the helmet. Were talking about face shields here. This is actually a new shield as well its called CNS1 shared with the Shoei Neotec. Its actually a taller and wider eye port then the Shoei RF-1100 so you have a little bit more vision out of the GT-Air helmet and they actually include the pin-lock insert and the pin-lock ready shield with it. So you might notice there's some little plastic posts on either side of this shield and that is actually for instillation of the pin-lock system. If your not familiar with that we actually have a full detailed review how to install it how these systems work at preventing fog but its essentially a little anti-fog insert. Its a poly carbonate insert that goes inside the shield and installs right between these two posts. It gives you a nice little sealed edge and it creates a bead of air between the inner shield and the outer shield which insulates the out side from the inside which does a really good job at preventing fog especially in colder weather. Ive had one on my helmet all winter long and they are indispensable for cold weather riding, they really help to prevent fogging. The helmet shield is removed with a simple lever system on the side here its a little trigger that you pull and then if you pop away the sides you just have to give it a little pull there its going to pull away. And while we have the shoei shield half way taken off here i wanted to point out the way you use the gaskets on the Shoei GT Air, there's actually a duel bead gasket. You can actually see that there is two layers of material that go all the way across the brow at the top and all the way across the sides and all the way across the bottom . What that does is it actually gives you two layers of protection from the elements like if its raining or if its really cold out or if you want a really good seal or preventing wind noise this helmet actually seals up really really well to prevent any wind or water from entering the helmet. So we have a duel bead system that goes all the way around, and it actually extends pretty far along the sides here and then the top of the shield. Let me go ahead and install this so you can see this because i really like the way that they designed this, to re-install just like up the upper tab here and give it a press and it will click back down if it will line up right. When you close the shield if you look here you can see they actually have a little bit of molded plastic that is part of the base plate, and the shield kind of takes up the rest of the space and then from there that rubber gasket takes over. They have done a really good job sealing up an area that a lot of helmets get a lot of wind noise. A lot of older Shoei helmets have a lot of problems with whistling wind noise for base plates that weren't adjusted right. These base plates are actually self adjusting they will pull the shield tight up against the helmet give you a really positive seal all the way around that gasket. The other thing that i wanted to talk about before we get to the inside of the helmet is the shell construction. Now we've already talked about the shell how its raised up to provide an area for that internal sun-visor to have some where to go and not compromise on the thickness of the EPS liner , so you can actually see that ridge where the front part of the helmet where it is raised up. This is Shoei motorcycle helmets AIM shell its their advanced ingratiated matrix which is a blend of carbon fiber , Kevlar and fiber glass. You'll notice that the shape of this helmet is a very unique shape as well. You have some different details throughout the helmet for aerodynamics, we have a large arrow spoiler in the back and that's just for stability its helps reduce lift or buffeting at all speed like i said i put about 20 miles on this helmet so far and im impressed by how it flows threw the air its also a very quite helmet. Were actually going to do a actual real world review at a later time when Ive actually had a chance to put some real miles on this helmet, and ill give you my actual opinions on how well it actually functions. For my quick little ride it flows really nicely threw the air , i know Shoei has a full size wind tunnel that holds a motorcycle with a rider and helmet and they do extensive testing for both wind noise , lift, aerodynamics ventilation they really test these things very very thoroughly . Taking a look at the ventilation system you have a chin bar vent and i can tell you from my short ride today it is a very effective chin bar vent, a lot of helmets that i have tried if you open and close the chin bar vent you honestly cant tell a whole lot of a difference , well this one actually moves quite a bit of air. You can actually feel it come up threw the helmet, and it actually directs the air right here up onto the face shield which is going to help combat fog it also helps give you some fresh air into the helmet. I did want to point out that this breath deflector is included in the box with the helmet , its not installed on the helmet when you get it out of the box but it does come with it but its a simply pushes in and its held in like a rubber piece and that just helps deflect your breath away from the shield again helping to combat fog. The upper vent is a two position slider and its kind of a ram air scoop. So its stuck up on the top of the helmet which is going to be a great place for those of you who have larger touring bikes or bikes with windscreens that give you a lot air protection. This is actually up at the highest point off the top of your head so its actually going to be in the great place for wind to come down inside the helmet. And it works really well its got two positions half way open and fully open. Slide the whole top piece back and forth . Obviously easy to use with gloves on. When i open this , granted today's only 65 degrees, but when i opened it i really felt it on the top of my head. On the back you have a rear exhaust vent, again just slide,this one is just open or closed. An area of low pressure is created behind the helmet as you ride which is going to help bring that warm air out the back of the helmet. It comes out here and actually at the base of the helmet neck roll there is some more areas for that warm air to come out the back. Now before we pull the whole helmet apart, I do want to throw it on the scale here to see how much it weighs , and every time you add things like internal sun visors and other features it typically adds a bit of weight to the helmet but this ones coming in at 3.7 pounds and this is a size large and that is definitely a respectable number. Here is a size large RF1100 and you can see that is 3.65 pounds . So some how Shoei has managed to make the GT Air with out adding a ton of weight when compared to the RF 1100. Now like i said i did have this one on earlier and compared to the RF-1100 im going to say its the same type of head shape which is typically an intermediate oval for Shoei's , they happen to fit me very very well. In this particular helmet it was a smidgen tighter then the RF1100 is. So keep that in mind i'm not going to say that it is anywhere close to needing to go up or down a size but in my opinion trying these on back to back this one did feel slightly tighter. So if your familiar with Shoei helmets and you know which size fits you best you are going to be reassured that this will fit you pretty well also. Now lets take a look at the inside of the GT Air because they have done some pretty neat things on the interior. First of all on the neck roll here and that's this part that goes all the way around the base of your neck. They've actually created it so that it encompasses the base of your neck and your jaw line and it really raps around the nicely around the back of your head that really works wonders at not only preventing unwanted air from swirling up inside the helmet but keeping the helmet quite. So that's very dependent on your bike by the way no matter what helmet your in , if your bike has a wind shield or a faring that directs a lot of air right at the base of your helmet no matter what helmet you have on its going to be noisy . Where as if your on a completely naked bike or a bike with a substantial windshield where you would have a lot of wind protection where you'll have a lot quieter of a ride. You have a really good chin curtain that is built into the helmet as well and this piece right here comes in right under your chin, provides a lot of coverage prevents a lot of unwanted air from swirling up ,and then the cheek pads have a lot of good jaw line support and then all the way around the back of the helmet which is very comfortable as well. You may notice these red tabs here there's actually a little sticker they include on the side of the helmet for emergency personnel. This is actually their emergency quick release system that they have used on their race helmets like the Shoei X-12 or the off road helmet call the Shoei VFXW and its for emergency personnel to know that if they grab this little red tab and they give it a pull they can actually remove the cheek pads right out of the helmet. What that does it allows them , if you were to go down and have a really nasty accident and your unconscious or they suspect you might have a neck injury , they can actually pull these out while keeping your head stabilized and that has enlarged the opening at the base of the helmet that much further. You can see how much easier it would be for them to now remove the helmet minimizing any movement to your neck to not create any further injury, if they suspect a neck injury. The chin curtain is also removable so if you decide you want to ride without it it warm or hot weather or something like that and you just want some more air flow up underneath you can pull that out. And then the crown liner is also fully removable, so you can pull that out with a few snaps around the front a couple snaps at the back and the crown liner comes right out. Now Shoei does an exceptional job a lot of people question what the extra expense is for and they do a very good job at making sure the liner is going to work with conjunction with the EPS liner( the foam liner that's in the helmet itself). This is their 3d max dry liner its moisture __ its antibacterial and you'll see that they actually use two different types of foam on different parts of the GT-Air helmet. So the top they use a much denser foam in fact if you zoom in there you can see there are different layers of foam that they use and that's to give you that really custom fit where the helmet is really hugging your entire head and staying really comfortable and without creating any unwanted pressure points . Foam that comes around the forehead area a lot of helmets tend to put a lot of pressure some times too much pressure this is a softer foam. So its going to be a lot more comfortable in that area. They've done the same type of thing with the cheek pads they are contoured to hug your face not to make you bite your cheeks or anything like that you can see its a very nice sculpted cheek pad with a nice large piece to go over the ears to keep the GT-Air helmet quiet. Now while were talking about the ears this helmet has something else that i think Shoei has done really well we have these little speaker pockets that is built into the shell itself and they are actually removable so if you grab this here you can actually pull this out and its just a little bit of foam padding with a little plastic ring and that's actually going to help deaden sound what we have actually found is that when you create a cavity by your ear for speakers if you don't have the speakers there to take up that room it tends to make the motorcycle helmet a bit noisier , so what they did was they included a piece of foam and a little bit of padding there to take up that extra room sound dampening material and it really helps keep the helmet nice and quiet . Of coarse you can take that out and you have a nice large area for a speaker if you run a communication system you can easily have a place for your speaker and its going to be right where it needs to be right next to your ear you can hear it nice and loud whether your listening to music or communication or anything like that. Finally looking at the inside of the helmet itself you can see that's the EPS foam liner that black material there that's expanded polystyrene and all those air channels you see is what directs all the air throughout the helmet so you'll see those large intake holes in the top i want you to get a good look at those very large intake holes . That is where that top vent directs air down to the top and like i said with that open i could really feel a lot of air coming down inside the shoei helmet and then those air channels are directing air out the back of the helmet here's those air channels i was talking about earlier they direct air all the way down and out the base of the neck roll and there's also exhaust ports out the top there for a rear exhaust vent. Very well designed ventilation system in this helmet . Whether your a touring rider a sport bike rider or on a cruiser if your looking for a full face helmet that has that drop down internal visor the Shoei GT Air is definitely not one to skip over its a very very well made helmet it does not disappoint. I cant wait to put some miles on this thing to give you my real world opinions on how it preforms but the short little ride that i did earlier i was very very impressed with it i was very happy with it. I'm going to put some miles on it and give you my real opinions on it in the up an coming weeks .

    GT AIR - JOHNNYRR   WI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Weight, fit, finish and quiet
    Cons: pricey

    300 miles of highway time and Shoei GT Air is everything it is advertised to be. Flip down sun visor is excellent . My ride is a Triumph Tiger 1050 so I am upright and wind under chin is minimal.

    Shoei GT Air - Terry Z   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: fit, apperance, air flow, inner sun visor, quality, low noise all good
    Cons: The little snap for the strap end is a bit too close to the helmet

    I've mostly worn Shoei helmets because they fit my head so well. I've had various RF's, the Quest and a Vemar Carbon fiber, Bell And Fulmers back in the proverbial day. This is simply the best helmet yet.


    Below are more Shoei Reviews from our online customers.
    Hopefully they can help you find the right item and make the best buying decision.

    Great helmet, delicate finish - Robert   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Lots of ventilation and built in sunglasses
    Cons: Mat finish is delicate

    This helmet replaced an Arai. The built in sunshadesunglasses is a great convenience. I like the looks of the helmet hi-vis yellow with mat finish but some bug stains will not come off. I called Shoei and they said to be very careful when cleaning no solvents as you can rub off the mat finish.The helmet fits great and the removable pads for the speaker pockets is a welcome feature for the installation a bluetooth set.Shield removal for cleaning is fairly easy, but the Arai system is still the best. The shield and the sunscreen are optically perfect...no complaints.

    Shoei J Cruise - Tony C   WV Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great ventilation Quiet for a 34 helmet
    Cons: [None]

    I purchased this helmet to add a com system, the shield has no wind noise at all. I'm still debating on what sytem to add. The sizing matches my Shoei full face exactly. The integrated sun visor operates flawlessly, and the helmets' ventilation lets you feel the air flowing across the top of your head. The styling allows great forward and peripheral vision. This helmet may seem a bit pricey, but with Shoei, you do get what you pay for.

    RF-1200 is awesome compared to RF-1000 - Chad R.   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Comfortable, great product video, fast shipping, pin-lock shield
    Cons: [None]

    Well after a couple years of riding with the Rf-1000 I bought back in 2010 I decided to step up to the new RF-1200 and boy am I happy I did.. It is so much lighter feeling on my head and much quieter. The vents work well and I love the pin-lock shield system. What a life saver for those moist days and cold mornings. the fit of the rf-1200 was a perfect match for my head and the same Large fit me just like the reviews said. Shipping was very fast and getting the Cash Back was a nice kicker.

    Love the RF-1200 - Patrick3912   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: quiet, light, difference cheek pad options, FREE pin-lock included
    Cons: [None]

    Well after years of waiting for my Arai to die.. I decided to make the switch.. I've always wanted a SHOEI helmet and couldn't have picked a better helmet in my opinion. In my time I've worn quite a few helmets and this helmet is by far the most comfortable. The cheek pieces are a little tight, so I ordered the next smaller size with my Cash Back.. The FREE shoei pin lock system is awesome I tried to make it fog up and couldn't. I don't know what else to say about this helmet other than is is a great helmet and IMO you won't be sorry if you decide to buy one.

    Red shoei RF-1200 Matches my Ducati - Rick998   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great red color, light weight, quiet, comfortable, good value
    Cons: [None]

    I bought this helmet to replace a bell vortex and it is a huge improvement. I would equate the noise level to wearing an Bell with ear plugs. The fitment is a bit different though. I had to buy the 33 mm cheek pads to replace the supplied 35 mm ones that come with the small helmet. The original pads pressed on my face and the bottom of my ears really hard causing significant discomfort after 30 only minutes. Luckily for me the smaller pads fixed that problem. The RF-1200 helmet fits perfectly now and the helmets smaller frame makes head checks so much easier. I definitely will recommend this helmet to other riders who are looking for a great helmet.. Not just a cheap one..

    RF-1200 helmet review - Shoeiman   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent Helmet for Price, Light weight, easy to wash, quiet
    Cons: [None]

    This is my 1st helmet, so I wanted a good one. the RF-1200 paint is easy to wash and put together. Very quiet for the most part depends on the vents you use. Some of the pieces that come with the helmet may have to be replaced if you use it every day like the chin guard. The face-shield is also a nice feature as it is super quick to take on and off. Overall the RF1200 is an excellent helmet for the price.

    Matte Black was perfect match for HD - Harley Man   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Comfortable, Light, good vision, quiet
    Cons: [None]

    I have a Harley Iron 883 and wanted a Matte Black helmet to match. After looking around I decided on this one because of the reviews and the fact it was a Shoei. The matte Black color is great and it looks even better with a Dark smoke shield. Great buy. Shipping was ultra fast and the Cash back was great too. I used the money for a pair of Black sliders jeans.Thanks to the crew at Comp-A

    Shoei RF-1200 Matte Black - Bought a Matte Black Large   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good fit, light weight, more of a narrow shape, Great vision
    Cons: expensive, but my head is worth it

    I love this helmet... However, it was a bit costly. Nevertheless, the rule I've been told is Buy a hundred dollar helmet for a hundred dollar head. So I'm glad to pay if it means safety. With this helmet, I have more faith in that safety. The RF-1200 shoei as a cool look and temperature, and fits my XL head wonderfully. I haven't owned many helmets, but this feels much more substantial than others.

    Awesome Motorcycle Helmet - Jake L 79   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Lightweight, comfortable, Free Pin-Lock Insert, Great Vision
    Cons: [None]

    Only complaint anti-fog shield doesn't work as well as I'd hoped. Certainly not as bad as with it off though.I definitely noticed the top-notch features of RF-1200 when I put it on for the 1st time. Light-weight that doesn't strain your neck. Large outward vision. Good ventilation during hot weather. Soft, removable interiors that fit snug around the cheeks and ears--not a problem when wearing shades. Slick visor that's easy to remove and snap back on. Above all, sick looking helmet.

    HAPPY BOYFRIEND - Loving Girlfriend   HI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: New Shape
    Cons: A little heavier than the RF1000

    My boyfriend has had his Soumy for five years and before this one he had the Shoei RF1000. He got the Soumy after he got into an accident with his Shoei. He and I both have to look for the lightest helmets because he get bad headaches from our necks. He loved his Soumy but loved the Shoei more,so knowing he needed a new helmet, I got him this one. I looked into the Shoei and liked the design of this helmet. I had it mailed to my boyfriend by surprise. He was so surprised and said it looks WAY better in person than online. He tried it on and said it was a little heavier than his first Shoei but when he used it on a ride he called me so excited and so happy. He said it maybe a tad heavier but with the new design, his head doesn't bobble and just head over heels about it and trust me he is very critical about things.

    Very expensive well made helmet - Crash   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Quiet, Comfortable, inner shade is there when you need it, well ventalated
    Cons: Just on the expensive side but well worth it

    I really don't like riding with a Helmet, that being said I never ride a Sport bike without one. This helmet takes out the wind noise, allows you to see, which is always a good thing, I even think it would protect your head if the bad happens.It is also way too cool and nice, I find myself always stowing it in the Cover to protect it from scratches.

    Shoei GT Air Motorcycle Helmets - Savannahd   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit nicely, quiet, the inner sun visor look very cool and functional specially facing the sun.
    Cons: Fog up when stop at traffic light.The Pinlock lens help a lot but suffer from distorting incoming light

    I ordered a medium size according to the measuring scale but the helmet was so tight. Just packed everything back neatly in the box then sent it back to Com Acc with a note asking to exchange for one size lager. Four days later, received a large size helmet which fit perfectly.This helmet is light and functional. It is very good for riding. When stop, I have to crack the visor open to prevent fogging. It is very quiet when the top vents are closed. Don't want to find out how well it can protect my head but will buy another one.

    Very nice helmet - DuaneO   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Quiet, Sun Shield, Very Aero, Good Ventilation
    Cons: Chin Vent

    If you have a slightly narrow or oval head shape, I doubt that you could do much better than a GT Air. Previously, I had a Arai Quantum II. The first thing I noticed when I put it on was how quiet it was, and that was before I put the chin curtain on. The chin curtain makes it even quieter, but reduces airflow into the helmet. The sun shield is outstanding, easy to operate with gloves on.When moving, the airflow through the helmet is very good, can easily keep you cool on warm days. The chin vent only puts air onto the visor so when gong slow or stopped, I find I need to crack the visor to get some air when it is warm.The aerodynamics are very good. With the Arai, I would get some buffeting when the windscreen was all the way down. With the GT-Air, I haven't noticed any buffeting. When I turn my head at speed, the wind is much less noticeable than with the Arai.The comfort is very good, it has a plush liner. The ear pockets, for me, feel a bit crowded. Maybe my ears set higher, they touch on the top, but I only notice it when I first put it on. Also, the chin curtain rubs across your forehead, nose and chin when you take the helmet on and off.I was suppressed to see that it actually weighted less than my Quantum II. size mediumI installed my Sena SMH5 and it went on pretty easy. I did have to put a thicker rubber pad on the clamp to get it to secure in place.It is expensive, but I really think that you get what you pay for

    Great helmet - F Quinn   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: High quality fit and finish, great fit ability, love the adjustable shade
    Cons: [None]

    I love he removable interior, made it easy to install an intercom set. Plus the cheek pads come in three thicknesses, so I bought the thinner set that perfected the fit. I have owned 2 Shoei RF helmets in the past and this is the best one yet,

    VFX-W saved my Life - Robbie   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: light, comfortable, safed by head in a crash
    Cons: little small

    I crashed HARD, head first at my last race. The helmet definitely did its job. No concussion or injury of any sort except for ripping up my shoulder a bit. I am very pleased with this helmet. The ONLY complaint I have about this helmet is it runs a little small. I normally can fit tightly into a large in other helmets and most XL's are a touch to big. In this helmet, I good fit into an XL. Other than that, the helmet is awesome. I get compliments all the time on the way it looks. I own the VFX-W Helmet in matte black and also an Shoei RF-1100 in Matte Black for the street. They both are great.

    Shoei GT Air Review - Craig Lestina   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great ventilation, Internal sun visor works great, Large shield, No fog
    Cons: None

    I upgraded my RF1100 for the GT Air. Both helmets are great, but the GT has increased ventilation, better visability and the internal sun visor. The weight is about the same. Very comfortable. Overall, in my opinion, it is the best full face helmet on the market.

    Quietest helmet yet - Andrea S   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Quiet, Well Made, Awesome Looking,sunshade, wider field of view, light
    Cons: Needs to break in, padding keeps out sound but is a bit tight at the begining

    This is my third Shoei helmet, and they just keep getting better. The fit and finish of this helmet did not disappoint. I purchased a small white and black and my husband a medium black and white Wanderer. The white and black has a very nice finish, and is pearl like in the sun while the black one is a flat black but when in the sun has panels of finish that seem to glow a dark metallic green. We are very pleased with the looks.Now, on to the function. The helmet at first try seemed much tighter than my prior Shoei helmets of the same size however, after a few uses has already broken in and is getting more and more comfortable. Shoei put a little more padding around the base of the helmet and this is where it seems to be a bit more form fitting-but I assume also the source of the more quiet ride. I would still recommend that you order your normal Shoei helmet size and just be patient with break-in.The air vents are great, the best design ever. They are large and easy to use with gloves. As are the shield and sun-visor controls.The helmet I had prior to this was an RF-1100. Once I saw that this new GT helmet had a sun shade, I put my RF-1100 on Ebay and ordered this guy. The RF-1100 was a great helmet, but if you can trade up to this helmet you won't be disappointed. The sun shade is an awesome idea that I can't believe isn't more common in other helmets.All in all, these helmets are a bit on the pricy side-but the quality and the workmanship is 5 star. This is a great product, I would recommend.
