GT-Air II Design Concept.
Released in 2013, as SHOEI's premium touring full-face helmet with an internal sun shield, the original SHOEI GT-Air established this type of helmet as a functional and stylish alternative appreciated by many riders, owing to its convenience and aggressive, refined design. SHOEI has now released the all-new GT-Air II, a helmet that evolves the GT-Air's functionality, performance, and design primarily for touring use to a new, higher level of experience.
The SHOEI GT-Air II integrates the optional SENA SRL 2 Bluetooth communication system seamlessly into the concept of this helmet. The GT-Air II is also equipped with a CNS-1 face shield and baseplate system; allowing the face shield to open slightly more in its "cracked open" position to reduce fogging of the shield at low speed. The GT-Air II also uses an all-new extended QSV-2 inner sun shield for improved coverage of the rider's face in bright sunny conditions. Inheriting the functionality, performance, and design of the GT-Air, the GT-Air II further enhances the performance of the internal sun shield, full-face helmet.
Aerodynamic Shell Design:
Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind-tunnel testing and professional riders' feedback.
Multi-piece, multi-density EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation.
Three shell and four EPS liner sizes provide increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes.
Shell integrated spoiler reduces drag and lift, as well as reduces fatigue to rider's neck while riding at high speed.
Sun Shield System:
Built-in QSV-2 sun shield gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion.
Sun shield meets ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyeglasses.
Large and easy-to-reach switch activates the 3D injection-molded inner sun shield.
Distortion-free shield blocks 99% of harmful UV rays.
New locking mechanism holds the visor firmly in place in the down position for easier removal / installation.
Redesigned upper air intake shutter draws in more fresh, cooling air.
Enlarged lower air intake opening allows greater airflow into the chin bar area.
Large lower and upper vent shutters for ease of use with riding gloves.
Three (3) intake and six (6) exhaust vents.
Wind-tunnel optimized to maximize airflow and improve negative air pressure exhaust suction.
Multi-Ply Matrix AIM Shell:
Proprietary technology integrates a multi-ply matrix specifically designed to meet DOT standards.
Hand-laid interwoven layers of fiberglass with organic fibers and resin.
Shell-integrated spoiler with consistent shell thickness ensures proper strength and weight.
3-D Max Dry Interior System:
Fully removable, washable, replaceable, and adjustable.
Exclusive Max-Dry material absorbs and dissipates sweat two times faster than traditional nylon.
Three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider's head.
Multi-layer cheek pads for improved comfort and helmet stabilization.
Optional interior components available in different sizes for a customizable fit.
Micro Ratchet Chin Strap:
Patent-pending 100% stainless steel interlocking mechanism.
Quick and smooth closure and release.
Comfortable and easily adjustable.
CNS-1 Shield System:
The CNS-1, three-dimensionally curved shield offers a wider and taller field of vision.
Comes equipped with a Pinlock(R) EVO fog-resistant system.
New airtight window beading drains / prevents water from entering helmet.
Scratch-resistant shield coating.
99.9% protection from harmful UV A and B rays.
The ultimate all-rounder has been updated to meet the demands of today’s rider. The shell design of the new Shoei GT-Air 2 has been evolved but remains true to its aerodynamic and stable roots. Featuring an improved ventilation scheme, the GT-Air II includes the lengthened QSV-2 drop down sun visor which provides 5mm more coverage for instant sun relief.
Like its flip-up cousin, the Neotec 2, the GT Air 2 has a micro ratchet chin strap and is designed to integrate with the GT-Air II specific SRL 2 Bluetooth Communication System by Sena for a clean and low profile installation.
Aerodynamic Shell Design:
Aerodynamic properties maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing and professional riders’ feedback
Multi-piece EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation
Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift as well as diminishes pressure on the rider’s neck while riding at speed
Sun Shield Visor System:
Built-in QSV-2 sun shield gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion
Visor meets ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyeglasses
Large and easy to reach slider activates the 3D injection-molded inner sun shield
Distortion-free shield blocks 99% of harmful UV rays
Forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, allowing the integrity of the GT-Air’s inner EPS liner to remain intact
Redesigned upper air intake vent positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior
Enlarged lower intake vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation
Upper and lower intake vents are easy to operate even with gloved hands
Rear/neck vents allow for effective air exhaust
Three intake, six exhaust vents
Breath guard and chin curtain included
Advanced Integrated Matrix (AIM):
High performance fiber materials combined with elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra-lightweight, rigid and resilient
Three shell sizes: XS-SM, MD-LG, XL-2XL
3-D Max-Dry center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads
Chin curtain prevents wind entry and reduces noise
Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance
Eyeglass compatible interior
E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from the helmet of a rider involved in an accident, in turn making the Shoei GT-Air more easily removable
Micro Ratchet Chin-Strap:
100% stainless steel interlocking mechanism
Quick, smooth and easy to operate
CNS-1 Shield System:
CNS-1 three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces
Includes Pinlock Anti-Fog Lens for more coverage of the CNS-1 shield
Dual-Ridge window bead increases contact with the shield to reduce wind noise
