Shoei GT Air Helmet - Solid Colors SHOEI introduces the GT-Air, a lightweight full-face helmet with improved ventilation, a fully removable noise-reducing interior, a built-in sun visor and a distinctively stylish shell that is as good looking as it is integral to its performance while on the road. Aerodynamic Shell Design Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel 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 to 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, helping allow for the integrity of the helmets inner EPS liner to remain intact Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is 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 The rear/neck vents allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain included Advanced Integrated Matrix (AIM) High performance fiber materials are 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 helmet more easily removable Standard Chin-Strap Clip Neatly secures chin strap CNS-1 Shield System The CNS-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Includes new redesigned 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 AB rays Safety Certification DOT-218 Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I purchased this for an upcoming coast 2 coast trip. Being happy with my RF-1000, I was between the RF-1100 & the Quest. Then this helmet was introduced. The visor was what sold me I have put around 1000 miles since receiving it, and i am disappointed. The helmet initially fit tighter then what i was comfortable with compared to my RF-1000. I was actually getting a headache from wearing it. But it broke in nicely, and fits comfortable now. The flip down visor is amazing. It works great and is very clear and optically correct. The Pin lock being included is not only a nice treat, but its a must have since Shoei did a poor job with anti-fog on this model. The pockets inside for speakers are nice, and the quick release tabs to quickly remove all the inside cheek pads is a welcome safety feature. My biggest complaint with this helmet is the noise. I expected a much quieter helmet, considering so few vents (only 2, top & chin) and this is not any quieter then my worn out, beat up, falling apart 8 year old RF-1000. In fact it has this annoying high pitch whistle that starts at around 75-80 mph and no matter what i do i can't get rid of it. They give you some silicon gel to get a better seal (apparently they knew of the problem) but it did nothing to silence the noise.
So, overall a good helmet, comfortable after breaking it in, good anti-fog 'only' with the pin-lock installed, loud with plenty of wind noise and whistles to keep you entertained, and nice features like the speaker pockets and the flip down visor.
GOOD HELMET...NOT GREAT...SHOULD BE FOR THE PRICE !!!
