Taking Shoei’s premium sports touring helmet and revising the design, Shoei have improved an already amazing sports touring helmet and given us the Shoei GT Air 2. The Shoei GT Air 2 features everything that we’ve come to know and love about the GT Air 2 with additional improvements to make your life on the road easier.
The Shoei GT Air 2 is created in an AIM outer shell, a combination of organic and multi-composite fibres woven together to form an incredibly strong matrix. Beneath this AIM outer shell lies a multi-density EPS lining, offering superior impact protection and helping to cushion the effects of a high impact situation by reducing the energy that is transferred to your head. The shell of the GT Air 2 is created in three shell sizes, allowing you to find the perfect fit to your helmet without any unnecessary padding. The linings found within the Shoei GT Air 2 are plush and comfortable, making for a sublime environment for your head and a helmet you’ll be very happy to wear, whether on short commutes or long distance rides. The linings within the helmet are removable and washable, letting you keep that fresh feeling for longer.
This motorcycle helmet is developed for sports touring riders; the newly designed shell shape mimics that of the previous Shoei GT Air but with more aggressive styling, putting the ‘sports’ back into ‘sports touring’. The new shell has been wind tunnel tested and has improved aerodynamics over the previous model, including a newly designed chin bar, effectively slicing through the air and channelled beneath the integrated spoiler, keeping the helmet firmly planted on your head, even when riding at high speed.
The visor of this motorcycle helmet is anti-scratch, anti-mist and is PinLock ready, all set up to accept the PinLock anti-fog insert that is supplied with the helmet. The PinLock insert acts as double glazing for your helmet, limiting the misting up of the visor and leaving you with a clear field of view when riding in cooler weather. The visor features a ‘break-open’ option, allowing you open the visor ever so slightly and allowing a minimal amount of air into the visor, a useful feature for increasing ventilation when riding in very hot weather. The sealing of the visor on the GT Air 2 has been improved, with special beading around the visor providing the perfect seal, keeping out any unnecessary air and rain and leaving you to concentrate on the road ahead.
The Shoei GT Air 2 features a QSV-2 retractable sun visor, operated by a familiar, durable lever system found at the left side of the helmet. This sun visor features two settings, allowing you to choose how far you would like the sun visor to be lowered. This is done with two locking pins found at the inner visor area, allowing you to lock and limit how far the sun visor drops down. These locking pins can also be used to lock the sun visor in place, stopping the sun visor from moving when trying to remove it or when cleaning the visor whilst it is still in the helmet.
With a large chin vent and upper crown vent, the Shoei GT Air 2 features brilliant ventilation, a welcomed feature when riding in warmer weather and stopping you from becoming too warm within your helmet when riding. The helmet also features rear extraction vents, effectively removing the warm and stale air from within your helmet, keeping you cool and fresh within your helmet when on the road. The helmet is prepared to receive communication systems such as the Sena SRL-2, designed by Sena specifically for the Shoei GT Air 2 and fitting seamlessly into the helmet, keeping the sleek, slender appearance of the helmet with a bulky control unit at the side of the helmet that interferes with aerodynamics.
Finally, the helmet fastens using a stainless-steel micro-ratchet system for quick and easy fastening of the helmet. This stainless-steel ratchet is hardwearing and far more durable than plastic ratchets, ensuring many years of continual use.
Available in sizes XS – XXL and in both plain colours and graphics, you’re sure to find the right Shoei GT Air 2 for you.
