Shoei GT Air 2 - Emblem TC-1

Product Code:

Shoei® GT-Air II Emblem TC-1. The Shoei GT Air 2 is a great full face helmet by Shoei for Adventure/Touring, Urban/Street riders. Compared to any other style helmets, full face helmets provide the best overall protection as they cover you from top to chin. This is why you only ever see full face helmets on the track. When deciding on a new helmet and safety is your top priority you cannot go wrong with a full face helmet.

The Shoei GT-Air II motorcycle helmet replaced the original GT Air and has been around since in 2019. In that time, it’s received plaudits from customers and awarded a Ride magazine ‘Best Buy’ green triangle.

GT Air 2 the ultimate all-rounder has been updated to meet the demands of today's rider. The shell design of the new Shoei GT-Air 2 has been evolved but remains true to its aerodynamic and stable roots. Featuring an improved ventilation scheme, the GT-Air II includes the lengthened QSV-2 drop down sun visor which provides 5mm more coverage for instant sun relief.

Like its flip-up cousin, the Neotec 2, the GT Air 2 has a micro ratchet chin strap and is designed to integrate with the GT-Air II specific SRL 2 Bluetooth Communication System by Sena for a clean and low profile installation.

  • AIM multi-composite fibre construction.
  • Mist resistant CNS-1 Pinlock system (Pinlock insert included).

  • Detachable and washable centre pad and cheek pads.
  • Noise-reducing ear pads.
  • Prepared for intercom installation (SENA SRL2).

The Shoei GT-Air 2 Emblem TC-1 is a superior touring full-face helmet, featuring an aerodynamic AIM+ shell, optimised ventilation and an internal sun visor. The successor to Shoei's most popular full-face motorcycle helmet, the GT-Air 2 is designed to be their most innovative and ground-breaking helmet yet, the GT-Air 2 is built to be the answer for every condition.

The Shoei GT-Air 2, like all of Shoei's helmets, is built from the ground up taking the successes from previous helmets and fine-tuning other parts to make improvements. Similar to its predecessor the GT-Air 2 uses multiple layers of organic and multi-composite fibres built around an impact-absorbing AIM shell, that offers incredible protection as well as abrasion resistance. With 3 options for shell size and varying cheek pad sizes to give you a customized and personal fit that is ideal and perfect for you.

Shoei has subtly tweaked and modified the design of the GT-Air 2 to streamline the helmet further and have also poured more effort into improving the aerodynamics vastly thanks to repeated testing at Shoei's wind tunnel facility. The helmet features an integrated top spoiler as well as a fully newly designed chin spoiler that reduces buffering and relieves pressure on your head and neck at higher speeds.

The ventilation system of the Shoei GT-Air 2 has been drastically redesigned and improved to allow more airflow through the helmet without increasing drag and wind noise. Inlets on the upper head and chin areas of the GT-Air 2 work alongside a new slightly open visor position to allow for great airflow into the helmet and to fully circulate around cooling your head but all without misting the visor.

The helmet has been built with modern communication in mind and so utilizes a very low-profile space to fit a Sena SRL2 Communication device that allows for seamless integration for the comms kit without any awkward wires. It also features the newly designed QSV-2 Visor that offers an enlarged field of view, but it is also Pinlock ready.

The helmet is another revolution from Shoei, building on all the things they got right with the original GT-Air but putting a huge amount of effort into improving it even further. Shoei has brought their A-game to the modern full-face motorcycle helmet, the Shoei GT-Air 2 motorcycle helmet may just be the new benchmark for full-face helmets.
