GT-Air II Helmet Features

The features of these new dual sport helmets will simply blow your moto mind! Certainly, we’re talking about more than just aggressive styling and aesthetics. Because the GT-Air II’s progressive shell shape is compact and uniquely streamlined. As a result, it reduces air resistance and drag.

Additionally, an improved, airtight window beading brings the calm. Not to mention the enhanced internal sun shield system that prevents unwanted wind noise inside the helmet. So adventure touring communications have some pristine clarity to them… Which is awesome.

But we’re just getting started!

GT-Air II Helmet | Ventilation Performance

The GT-Air II is wind-tunnel optimized to maximize airflow and reduce unwanted noise. So it stays nice and quiet for your use of dual sport accessories like mp3’s etc. Moreover, the GT-Air II’s three (3) intake and five (5) exhaust vents are strategically shaped and positioned! Which gives improved cool air intake and hot air expulsion. Shoei has also redesigned the upper air intake shutter. Which combines with an enlarged lower air intake opening to yield greater airflow throughout the entire helmet.

GT-Air II Helmet | Shield System

The GT-Air II’s advanced shield system provides a large, distortion-free view. Furthermore, it facilitates smooth and easy shield changes as needed for your motorcycle eyewear. It also features an all-new “first position” shield opening, and comes equipped with a lengthened internal sun shield for optimal relief from sun glare in one quick motion.

GT-Air II Helmet | Safety

Few characteristics of motorcycle helmets are as critically important as its first and second layers of defense. Which is precisely why the GT-Air II features the Shoei-exclusive Multi-Ply Matrix AIM shell. And the Multi-Piece/Multi-Density EPS liner. It’s all critical to Shoei’s renowned combination of comfort and safety.

GT-Air II Helmet | Comfort

The GT-Air II is equipped with a fully removable, washable, adjustable, and replaceable 3D Max-Dry Interior System. Which is capable of dissipating sweat 2x faster than traditional nylon interiors. It’s not unlike much of the newer, vented motorcycle apparel, but inside the helmet! Also, there’s multi-layer cheek pads for comfort and helmet stabilization along with premium two-tone interior fabric. Lastly, red stitching accentuates the GT-Air II’s unmatched fit and finish.
