Shoei GT Air Journey Helmet 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

Coming from race helmets Bell Star Carbon and Arai Corsair V, I was Jonesing for a quieter helmet. One that would allow use of a bluetooth communication system that I could actually HEAR my passenger's voice. The GT Air fits the bill.
Downsides: No magnetic strap retainer, sun shield doesn't go down far enough, graphic choices are extremely limited, it's a very expensive helmet for not even being Snell approved, and it took a full week to arrive because Revzilla shipped it from the Left Coast and I'm opposite of them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Everything we were looking for except size. I'd say they run about a size and a half too small. For example, my wife wears a size Medium in Euro gloves. She ended up with a Large and it was still tight but wearable. We're hoping for some stretch. After one return, the process gets sort of old, even though Revzilla makes it pretty easy, and not horribly expensive, although the return shipping fee does represent a sizable percentage of a small purchase such as gloves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Wiring harnesses have just been improved. Previously I used a non-adhesive PVC wrap with electric tape securing the ends. This stuff is waaaaay better. I plan to buy a couple more rolls. Good stuff!

The video stated that the fit is bigger than the RevIt! Ignition 1. I don't see it. I had a 54 with the original and it was a bit bulky in the chest. The size 52 Ignition 2 fit's perfectly. I'm a 44 chest, 5'10", 185 pounds. A size 50 fit snug in a t-shirt and without any of the zip-in accessories.
I miss the bicep zipper vents from the old jacket. The collar on the new jacket is higher which I like, but it doesn't have the fleece as advertised. The zippers on the sleeves also are not the one-way race zippers as advertised. Finally, I don't like having to unbutton the sleeve snaps every time I take it off or put it on. Didn't have to do that with the old style. But then you don't have to snap/unsnap the belt every time with the new jacket. I miss the big inside pocket. The new one has a Nepolian slit pocket but I prefer the bigger standard sport-jacket-style pocket with a zipper of the old one. With that one, my phone and wallet would fit. Not so with the new slit pocket.
Other than I now have the correct size, the Ignition 2 is a step backwards from the original version.
Yes, I recommend this product.

SAS-TEC Back Protector Cutting edge SAS-TEC material is intelligent armor constructed from visco elastic soft foam smart molecules. It has earned the highest CE rating available (CE level 2), during an impact, the armor freezes and hardens, absorbing the shock and distributing its force over a large area to reduce the risk of fractures. The protector is not destroyed by impact, but reverts back to its original state and maintains its capability to protect from multiple impacts. SAS-TEC Armor has a soft and pliable exterior (as opposed to rigid KNOX armor) which offers a great deal of comfort and mobility. This protector is anatomically designed and fitted to provide superior spine and back protection as well as the base of the neck /between the shoulder blades. SC-1/11 fits Women's Turbine Jacket SC-1/12 fits REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Jacket and Turbine Jacket REV'IT Gore-Tex Jackets have different shaped back protector pockets depending on the size of jacket, see the size chart for fitment information SC-1/16 should only be used for XYL or larger Gore-Tex Jackets SC-1/11 Measurements (approximate) Height 15 3/4 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/12 Measurements (approximate) Height 19 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/16 Measurements (approximate) Height 21 3/8 Width (at widest point) 13 3/8 Thickness 3/4

Nice product. It trimmed up easily with an exacto knife to fit my RevIt! collection. My only complaints are (1) it's heavier than any other back protector I've come across, and (2) it doesn't flow much air. The composition seems to really reflect body heat and tends to hold it in. I moved it to my race suit for this reason as it was too hot inside my leather+Mesh jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.

After wearing the RevIt! Ignition Jacket (Mesh/Leather) and Gear Pants for the season, I was sold on the RevIt! brand, it's detail and design/build quality, and how versatile they are. I was in the market for a race suit but these Tarmac jacket and pants offer similar protection yet wasn't over the top to allow for some street duty as well. The speed hump isn't "gawk-at-me huge what's wrong with that guy", and being mostly black you won't feel like a squid who sold his soul to advertisors and sponsors when you walk into the pub.
I already know what size I needed and that's another good thing about RevIt! - there's lots of choices, including length with the pants. I had to try on two sizes of each but it was WELL worth it. Perfect fit!
This is a great outfit that works well on both the street and the track. Just do it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
