Great product, and great value! You can tell how well it was built by the fit and finish. the Akrapovic exhaust gives a nice rumble but does not drone at freeway speeds.
does give it a little power boost over stock, but would really shine if it was a full system.
would not hesitate to buy again!

Shoei GT Air Helmet Enjoying the ride is what motorcycling is all about and having a helmet that is comfortable and safe just facilitates that joy. The Shoei GT-Air has been designed from the ground up to be the ultimate all-rounder. With a fully adjustable ventilation system, drop-down internal sun visor, fog-free Pinlock CNS-1 face shield and Shoeis legendary comfort and quality, the GT-Air has all of the features you need to keep your focus on the road instead of on the discomforts a lesser helmet can cause. The GT-Air was developed using wind-tunnel testing at Shoeis state-of-the-art facility in Japan which led to an aerodynamically-tuned tri-composite shell that mitigates buffeting, as well as wind and road noise. The plush liner is comfortable, quiet and removable when you need to wash it. Light, safe and comfortable, the Shoei GT-Air Helmet meets and exceeds the needs of contemporary riders, allowing them to enjoy what they love most: the ride. Aerodynamic Shell Design: Aerodynamic properties maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing and professional riders feedback Multi-piece EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation Three shell and four EPS liner sizes provide increased fit options that help comfortably fit most head sizes Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift as well as diminishes pressure on the riders neck while riding at speed Sun Shield Visor System: Built-in QSV-1 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 switch 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-Airs inner EPS liner to remain intact Ventilation System: Upper air intake vent positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance behind wind screens Easy to operate large lower intake vent Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation Rear/neck vents allow for effective air exhaust 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 Interior System: 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 Standard Chin-Strap Clip: Neatly secures chin strap 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 Scratch-resistant shield coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A&B rays Safety Certification: DOT Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

Great for hot days, and commuting. Love the Pinlock insert, EVERY manufacturer should include one. Drop down visor is nice to have so you don't have to swap out shields all the time.
Noise level is about the same as an AGV K4 Evo, which is about what I expected. but there is a slight whistling noise from the visor lock notch I think because it goes away when I turn my head slightly. It does buffet a little bit in the crosswinds and during head checks, but its manageable.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I purchased this helmet because i wanted a new one. Its super light, wonderful peripheral view, the added pinlock insert makes a world of difference riding in questionable temps.
Things i dont like, no D-ring to secure the helmet, the chin curtain helps, but does not block out all airflow when cooler out, and a hair louder than my other helmet, overall, great value for a helmet with some good italian styling.
Yes, I recommend this product.
