Taking the incredibly successful GT-Air model even further, the Shoei GT-Air 3 brings a host of revisions and improvements to an already stellar sports touring helmet, and features ECE 22:06 approval for your peace of mind that you are riding in the very best in protection and performance.
The Shoei GT Air 3 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 introduction of the ECE 22:06 helmet safety standard introduces additional considerations for protection in motorcycle helmets such as low-speed impact testing, multi-directional impacts and the transferal of rotational energy to the rider. The new Shoei GT-Air 3 has passed these standards of testing with ease, awarding the helmet it's ECE 22:06 certification and giving you peace of mind that you are riding in a helmet that offers a truly advanced level of protection when it is needed most.
The shell of the GT-Air 3 is created in three shell sizes with four EPS sizes, allowing you to find the perfect fit to your helmet without any unnecessary padding. The linings found within the Shoei GT Air 3 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 retain that fresh helmet feeling for longer. The outer shell of the new GT Air 3 helmet retains the now iconic GT Air profile with subtle changes to the outer shell to increase its performance. Features such as the narrower chin bar area help the GTAir 3 helmet to cut easily through the wind when travelling at speed to reduce turbulence and excessive wind noise when riding, along with the newly designed side bars that sit beneath the visor mechanism, which helps with energy transferal at the side of the head as well as effectively channelling air around the helmet.
As part of the introduction of the new ECE 22:06 helmet standards, the Shoei GT-Air3 features a centrally locking visor mechanism with a button release, included to minimise the chances of your visor opening in the event of an accident. The visor is opened by simply depressing the button at the chin to release the pressure, allowing you to then open the visor. The GT Air 3 features a clear outer visor as standard, which is anti-scratch coated, optically correct and ready to accept the Pinlock anti-mist insert which is included with your purchase. 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 Shoei GT Air 3 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.
Rather than simply wind tunnel test their helmets when they are completed, Shoei's design engineers develop their helmets in the wind tunnel, carefully sculpting their helmets to perform perfectly in every situation. This dedication to the craft of motorcycle helmet development sets them apart from every other helmet brand. This wind tunnel development allows the engineers to ensure the effectiveness of their ventilation system, which has been improved by relocating the top vent further forward to channel more air than ever before, maximising the airflow into the helmet when riding in warmer temperatures and a welcomed feature for summer riders. The large capacity chin vent of the Shoei GT Air 3 channels large amounts of cool air up to the visor area to help with demisting while the rear extraction vents encourage warm air to escape from within the helmet for a complete cooling experience.
Shoei's partnership with Sena Intercoms continues from the original concept found in the GT-Air 2 to the slimmer, sleeker offering showcased here on the GT Air 3. Retaining the neat and integrated functionality with an even slimmer profile, the Sena SRL-3 intercom fits seamlessly into the helmet and ensures that you can stay connected to your riding partners without interfering with the aerodynamic or safety properties of the helmet. Finally, the Shoei GT-Air 3 closes with an adjustable stainless steel micro ratchet which is easy to operate even while wearing thicker winter gloves and features reflective stitching to help further improve your visibility when riding in low light conditions.
Available in sizes XS – XXL and in both plain colours and graphics, you’re sure to find the right Shoei GT Air 3 for you.
