Shoei GT Air Helmet - Solid Colors Enjoying the ride is what motorcycling is all about and having a helmet that is comfortable and safe is just facilitates that enjoyment. 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 Shoei GT-Air was developed using wind-tunnel testing at Shoeis state-of-the-art facility in Japan which lead to an aerodynamically tuned tri-composite shell that mitigates buffeting, as well as wind and road noise. The plush removable liner is comfortable, quiet and removable when you need to wash it. Light, safe and comfortable, the Shoei GT-Air meets and exceeds the needs of contemporary riders, allowing them to enjoy what they love mostthe ride. Aerodynamic Shell Design Aerodynamic properties are 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 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, allowing the integrity of the GT-Airs 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 Shoei GT-Air 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 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, the GT-Air Helmet and other Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I loved my RF1100, but when it came to features, it was a bit lacking. This GT-Air gives me a built in sunshade and pinlock, making it perfect for year-round commuting and fun riding. I didn't have to spend $50 on an aftermarket pinlock, and I didn't have to spend $50 on an extra dark smoke shield. I'd say the extra cost for those features isn't really an extra cost at all if you'll actually use them. Fit is snug, just like the 1100 was when it was new, so I expect it to wear in about the same as well.

The latch mechanism is a little annoying, it's big and easy enough to use with gloves on, but sometimes it doesn't quite want to latch. You also can't latch it unless the key is in.
Inside, the document holder inside the lid is rather hard to use with any regularity as it is very hard to open and then re-latch.
Other than these two things though, the case is great. The buttons to open and to release from the rack are big, good feel, and easy to press. The case is solid when latched shut, I don't worry about someone being able to open it without my key.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a good, simple suit. It doesn't have a ton of extra features like locking zippers or velcro around the wrists and legs, but it does have all the right armor and stretch panels and necessary bits. I feel comfortable and safe wearing this suit.
Yes, I recommend this product.
