Unity of Performance and Design

Main concept in development of new generation touring full-face was a unity of performance including firm safety and stylish design.
While an inner visor which opens and closes makes it possible to correspond to various circumstances, a shell is designed not to compromise thickness of an impact absorption liner, essential factor for an impact absorption performance, and at the same time, not to be unnecessarily large. A lines streaming from side to rear head works as an integrated spoiler and improves aerodynamic performance.
GT-Air creates a new standard of touring full-face.

Main Characteristics

QSV-1 Sun Visor

Always same riding under any sunlight

QSV-1, inner sun visor injection molded and made of polycarbonate, may open and close and is adopted to SHOEI full-face helmet for the first time. This sun visor with minimum distortion has such a high performance as conforming to EN1836, European standard for sunglasses. To avoid a sudden unexpected closing of the sun visor, handling lever is held at the housing location of the sun visor.
A rider encounters various circumstances such as a tunnel, glaring sunlight in summer, afternoon sun in winter and nighttime. A sun visor which opens and closes corresponds to such varying circumstances instantly.

Standardized chin curtain

Standardized chin curtain restrains roll-in of wind effectively. Mesh type is also available as an option.

Uncomfortable noise is not created and blocked to invade inside

Quietness is assured by repeated experiments in in-house wind tunnel facility. In order to restrain fatigue caused especially by noise in a long time riding, attention was paid to all of such factors as a shell in superior aerodynamics, interiors fitting to a head properly without unnecessary gap, ventilation which doesn't create noise, etc. And also, enclosed chin curtain blocks a wind for further quietness.

CNS-1 Shield

To deliver the scenery to a rider as is

CNS-1 shield with minimum distortion is injection molded and contacts closely and firmly to a helmet by 2 step actions of "Down" & "Press". Window beading in double lip structure blocks invasion of uncomfortable wind or rainwater. Very favored easiness of fixing and removing is, of course, maintained. No tool is necessary at all. Fixing and removing of a shield can be made easily by one touch. You can clean dirt during tour with no stress.

A helmet must support a rider even in a bad weather

PINLOCK® fog-free system is standardized to secure a good vision restraining fogging of a shield under bad weather like rain or low temperature. An air chamber between a shield and anti-fog sheet avoids fogging together with moisture absorption nature of the sheet itself. The sheet larger than its predecessor covers up to top end of a shield and is used for CW-1 which is equipped to X-TWELVE, SHOEI's flagship racing model, also. A sheet which can be easily fixed and removed is easy in maintenance also same as a shield.

Micro Ratchet Type Chinstrap

Compatibility of Firm Safety and Easy Handling

A chinstrap is also an important component for safety. GT-Air is equipped with micro ratchet type chinstrap buckle whose main parts are made of high quality stainless steel to secure firm strength. Fixing and removing can be made easily even by gloved hand. And fine tuning is also easy.
Claws hang on latch in 2 points to hold firmly. A buckle can be released only when release lever is pulled to a certain extent to avoid an unintentional release. These are realized by SHOEI's ideas for safety.

2 claws hang on latch.

A buckle may not be released unless release lever is pulled to a certain extent.


Comprehensive control of an air stream realized effective ventilation.

A wind may be felt firmly even inside a helmet

Ventilation can be opened and closed easily by gloved hand by moving large shutter cover. A large front ventilation absorbs an air effectively and, at the same time, exhausts a hot air around a shield. Rear outlet is designed considering riding positions and angles also. It is independent from a spoiler purely for ventilation effect.

3D Full Support Inner IV + E.Q.R.S.

Comfortable feeling for long journey

Inner is assembled various hardness polyurethanes. This 3-D inner give you comfortable and firmly fitting. Surface of fabric consists of highly performance moisture absorption, quick drying and raised fiber with comfortable texture.

3D Full Support Inner IV

Soft polyurethane foam adopted to an area for temples of glasses eliminated unnecessary gap and improved comfortable wearing.

Ear Pad

An ear pad can be removed. A space around an ear may be adjusted.

E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick Release System)

E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick Release System)

In the event that the rider needs medical assistance, this system allows another person to quickly provide medical help. Although prompt action is required when offering medical assistance to the rider, the rider's helmet must be removed with great care. The E.Q.R.S. provides a special ribbon on the cheek pads that can be pulled during a medical emergency to easily detach the cheek pads from the helmet. By pulling off the cheek pad that holds the rider's cheek in place, the helmet can be removed from the rider's head with ease.

*When removing cheek pads for a usual maintenance, do not use E.Q.R.S. tabs.

Pulling the red ribbon at the end of the cheek pad with your finger allows the cheek pad to be removed.
