Shoei GT Air 3
The Shoei GT Air 3 is the third incarnation of the highly popular GT Air 2 full-face premium helmet from Shoei. ECE 22/06 Homologated, it has a lot to offer with improvements on the previously already outstanding GT Air models.
The highly GT Air 3 shell has a few tweaks to improve the aerodynamics even more for the third incarnation of the GT Air. The shell of this premium full-face helmet features wind tunnel-engineered aerodynamics with an integrated spoiler and multiple venting and extraction points with closable inlets on the brow and chin. An insect filter inside is a handy addition, along with a breath guard and chin guard included. It offers a shock-absorbant and lightweight AIM shell with Shoei's EPS liner system with multiple densities with ECE 22/06 homologation. A wide range of colours and designs means there is something for everyone.
It offers 3D centre pads and cheek pads in different thicknesses. All pads are detachable and washable to keep you feeling fresh and comfortable. It also offers ear pads. An insect filter inside is a handy addition, along with a breath guard and chin guard included. A Pinlock insert is also included. The inner lining is ultra-soft to the touch with high absorption and quick-drying fabric to prevent sweating and ensure higher levels of comfort - even on longer journeys!
The Neotec 3 boasts the Shoei QSV-2 sun visor - which is 5mm longer than the QSV-1 for greater coverage against sun glare. It offers quality comparable to the European sunglasses standard EN1836 with high optical qualities and little distortion. The sun visor mechanism is ultra-smooth yet durable, with a stopper function with a click at the fully open position, preventing it from dropping. It is also ultra-simple to use whilst wearing gloves.
The Neotec 3 comes equipped with a CNS-1C clear visor. The CNS-1 is shaped with both upper ends bent towards the shell for greater unity and cohesion, preventing water and wind from entering the shell. The centre locking mechanism keeps the visor opening smooth with window beading for airtight sealing. It comes equipped with a clear Pinlock insert for even clearer vision!
The Shoei GT Air 3 features an even more sophisticated ventilation system than its predecessors. The lower air intake system offers two resealable intake vents with a filter to prevent bugs from entering the helmet. The upper air intake features a step with the shell and base parts and is simple to operate even with Winter gloves. The vents lead to air channels inside the helmet. The top-air outlet has two exhausts for optimal air circulation and efficient ventilation.
Another area in which the GT Air 3 is improved is its quietness. In addition to a noise isolator reducing wind entry (and therefore noise), the GT Air 3's newly designed cheek pads offer extra volume at the bottom to minimise the gap around the neck and extended back of the head to improve contact with the neck and prevent wind from entering for superior comfort, and also superior levels of quietness. As the visor is ultra-close with a window bead for an airtight fit, this prevents wind from entering the visor opening. Shoei has incorporated parts at the side of the shell and visor to avoid air turbulence and improve the noise quality. The internal structure of the internal sun visor mechanism has been reviewed and moved from the rider's ear for maximum quietness.
A micro ratchet closure system is ultra-secure and durable. It is adjustable and easy to operate while wearing gloves. This is a newly developed micro ratchet that is more compact. Made from highly durable stainless steel, it locks when two claws are tightened and can be released only by raising the level to a specific angle or more. The newly developed micro ratchet is made from high-strength, high-elasticity, and high-performance fibre knitted together in the newly downsized strap for an improved fit while keeping security despite downsizing.
The mounting of the communication system on the GT Air 3 is ultra-compact - more than ever before - and, as such, features a greater unity with the helmet shell. Each part has a cover, and it does not affect the aesthetic, shape or aerodynamics of the GT Air 3. The base parts located on both sides of the shell reduce the vertical height, reducing wind noise. Like the GT Air 2, the units can be installed on both sides of the shell, and a battery in the space provided between the shell and liner at the back of the head. This made it easier to remove and fix the cover for the base parts and is designed so the charging port for the battery is placed on the back of the head so this can be charged while the helmet is on a flat surface. SENA is developing a new communication system specifically for the GT Air 3 following the SRL series.
