Shoei GT Air Pendulum TC-6 Helmet
SHOEI HELMETS PROGRESSIVE DESIGN
Few components of a motorcycle helmet are as critical as its first-layer of defense, which is precisely why the new GT-Air features an AIM shell construction. Combining fiberglass with organic fibers, the GT-Air’s shell is not only incredibly strong, it is extremely lightweight, and comes in an impressive three shell sizes to ensure a custom fit for heads between the sizes of XS-XXL. In addition, SHOEI’s exclusive, state-of-the-art shell forming technology incorporates the aerodynamic advantages of a spoiler right into the shell of the GT-Air, thereby eliminating the need for a traditional plastic spoiler. Reducing lift and drag during high-speed riding, the GT-Air’s shell-integrated spoiler yields a stable, less fatiguing ride.
The CNS-1 protects from 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays, and SHOEI’s 3D injection-molding process ensures a distortion-free view throughout the entire field of vision. Coupled with the QR-N base plate system, shield changes and base plate function have never been smoother.
Pinlock® ANTI-FOG SYSTEM
The all-new GT-Air comes equipped with a Pinlock® Fog-Resistant System, offering the most effective anti-fog protection in existence. A simple, one-step installation process makes every Pinlock® lens easy to install.
The GT-Air’s built-in QSV-1 sun shield gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion. A large, easily located switch activates the 3D injection-molded inner shield, and the distortion-free, anti-fog, scratch-resistant view blocks 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays just like the CNS-1 external shield that lies ahead. The forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, allowing for the integrity of the helmet’s inner EPS liner to remain intact. The QSV-1 sun shield exceeds the ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyewear.
Utilizing SHOEI’s wind tunnels to help reveal the optimal balance between airflow and silence, SHOEI engineers equipped the all-new GT-Air with a large lower vent shutter for ease of use with riding gloves, a strategically-placed, three position upper vent for optimal air intake, uniquely-positioned upper exhaust outlet vents to take better advantage of negative pressure suction, and a multi-piece EPS liner with cooling air channels... All yielding dramatically-improved cool-air intake and hot-air expulsion.
The GT-Air is equipped with a fully removable, washable, and replaceable 3D Max-Dry interior system. The 3D center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider’s head, allowing for an extremely comfortable fit while maintaining the firm hold necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding. Additionally, the 3D-shaped cheek pads are available in different thicknesses for a customizable fit. As if that wasn’t enough, SHOEI’s exclusive Max-Dry liner material absorbs and dissipates sweat and moisture twice as fast as traditional Nylon interiors.
