Shoei GT-AIR 2 Matte Black helmet


SKU: N/A Categories: ,

Product description Shoei GT-AIR 2 Helmet Matte Black

The new Shoei GT-Air 2 helmet is the long anticipated successor to the very successful original GT-AIR. The GT Air II is a sports touring helmet. Meaning it is an all-round full face helmet that has the comfort of a touring helmet. It has the looks of a sports helmet. Where the Shoei X-Spirit 3 is a real race helmet and the Shoei Neotec 2 is a real touring helmet, the GT-Air 2 kind of sits in between those two. It does both the jobs very well, but if you are looking for a full face to fly around the track with, the Shoei X-Spirit 3 is probably a better choice. And if you are regularly taking weekend trips on your touring bike, the Neotec 2 might be the better choice. The GT Air 2 will perfectly cover you for everything in between. The original GT-Air was one of the best fullface sport touring helmet, so it was quite a task to improve this. But we at Champion Helmets believe that Shoei has done a great job in making several improvements to this stable and comfortable helmet.

Shoei GT-AIR vs GT-AIR 2

One of the most visible differences between the old and new GT AIR 2 helmet is the design of the outer shell. The GT-AIR II has a more aerodynamic design than its predecessor. The spoiler is bigger. They tested it in Shoei’s windtunnel and made the spoiler in a way that it contributes to even more stability and silence. It produces less drag and make the airflow go around the shell smoothly. Another difference compared to the original gt air is that the integrated sun visor has become slightly longer for even better protection against the sun. This was one of the few things that came back as feedback from riders across the world on the old GT Air. Shoei took this feedback and translated it into a slightly longer internal sun visor. Especially on those shorter days at the end of the summer when the sun is very low, it is a great feature. It is perhaps good to mention that Shoei has left the number of layers in the inner shell complete and everywhere equally thick when installing the sun visor, the same as with the original GT-Air. With other brands, often a layer is left out to be able to build in the sun visor. Shoei has not compromised on safety here. The outer shell of the Shoei GT-AIR 2 comes in 3 different sizes, resulting in a compact helmet with an optimal fit.
