Shoei GT-Air II Shield System

The GT-Air II’s shield system was designed to provide a large, distortion-free view, and doesn’t require tools to swap out. It has an internal sun shield, and the outer shield has a new “first position” opening that’s optimized for venting and defogging without allowing in excess wind. The outer shield has an airtight window beading to keep water from getting into the helmet.

Shoei GT-Air II Aerodynamics and Ventilation

The compact, wind-tunnel-optimized shell shape reduces air resistance and drag. The improved, airtight window beading and the internal sun shield system aid in minimizing unwanted wind noise inside the helmet. The GT-Air II has three intake and five exhaust vents that have been shaped and positioned for improved cool-air intake and hot-air expulsion. A redesigned upper air-intake shutter and enlarged lower-air intake opening yield greater airflow throughout the entire helmet.
