GT-AIR 2 – The Answer For Every Condition
Sporty Touring Helmet
The full face helmet SHOEI GT-AIR 2 is the perfect partner for motorbike journeys or extended tours. Its integrated sun visor provides an optimal view at changing light conditions, the extraordinary ventilation a comfortable climate inside of the helmet. Thanks to exchangeable interior pads the helmet is adjustable to individual head shape. The micro ratchet fastener made of stainless steel allows the chinstrap to be closed and opened quickly and comfortably. An optional SRL2 intercom system made by SENA® provides information and entertainment while driving. It can be integrated easily, rapidly and almost invisible to the helmet shell.
Its outer shell from AIM (Advance Integrated Matrix) in combination with a composite polystyrene core with its elements different in density provide an optimal impact protection.
Thanks to a quick-exchange mechanism the standard CNS-1 visor with its wide field of vision can be exchanged quickly and tool-free. The mist-retardant PINLOCK®EVO lens from the delivery scope of the helmet provides a clear view even under difficult weather conditions.
The chinstrap with micro ratchet system is easy to handle and keeps the helmet in place safely.
In an emergency the cheek pads can be removed easily with the EQRS-system (Emergency Quick Release System) and thus a gentle removal of the helmet is provided.
The SHOEI GT-AIR 2.6 fulfils the high requirements of the ECE 22/06 test standard, valid since 2021.
With 3 different sizes of the outer shell (XS-M | L | XL-XXL) the SHOEI GT-AIR 2 enables an ideal proportion from helmet size to riders head size. Its relatively low weight relieves the neck muscles and reduces the fatigue effect, whether in sporty short-distance use or on extended tours.
The center pad, designed for an effective ventilation, as well as the tree-dimensional preformed cheek pad and the chinstrap cover are completely removable and washable. Cheek pads and center pads in different thicknesses are available for individual adjustment of the helmet. Detachable ear pads contribute effectively to noise reduction.
The high-quality, integrated sun visor QSV-2 of the SHOEI GT-AIR 2 is steplessly extendable. Compared with the sun visor of the predecessor model it was increased. It can be replaced easily and tool-free by an optional yellow tinted version with contrast enhancing effect. The extra visor thus ensures optimal sight for many purposes and weather conditions.
Recesses in the ear area as well as prepared cable grooves and installation positions allow a simple und quick mounting of the SRL2 intercom system made by SENA®, available from the SHOEI accessories range.
Several air intakes and air outlets reduce the temperature and humidity inside the SHOEI GT-AIR 2. Even when using the helmet in warm countries or in cold season a comfortable climate prevails inside the helmet and the driver is supplied sufficiently with fresh air. The modified visor mechanism allows by a new first step position a gap-width opening of the visor and thus an extra of fresh air.
An integrated spoiler contributes to the aerodynamic performance of the SHOEI GT-AIR 2.
For the SHOEI GT-AIR 2.6 visors in a range of tints and mirror coatings are available and can be used under consideration of the ECE homologation regulations. The helmet is originally equipped with the visor type CNS-1. In all visors of this type mist-retarding PINLOCK®EVO lenses can be attached, of which one is included with the helmet. The integrated dark tinted QSV-2 sun visor can be replaced easily and tool-free by a yellow tinted version with contrast enhancing effect.
In the SHOEI spare parts range cheek pads and center pads in different thicknesses and sizes are available for replacing the original pads or for individual adjustment of the helmet. Just as a chin strap cover, a breath guard, and a chin curtain.
With the SHOEI GT-AIR 2.6, the SRL2 intercom system by SENA® from the SHOEI accessories range can be integrated. Once paired with a mobile phone, a navigation device or another intercom system it offers the possibility of information and entertainment while driving.
