SHOEI GT-AIR ii

DESIGN CONCEPT

With the innovative and highly-acclaimed GT-Air as a baseline, the all-new GT-Air II was destined for greatness from the very start. Advancements in design, functionality and performance have further evolved SHOEI’s premiere full-face touring helmet, yielding even easier adaptation to the ever-changing conditions throughout your journeys. Featuring a lengthened internal sun shield for optimal sun-glare protection, all-new “first position” shield opening for advanced ventilation and defogging, enhanced aerodynamics and noise-reduction technology, and the ability to seamlessly integrate with the all-new SENA SRL2 Communication System, the GT-Air II is equipped to accommodate your every need.

GT-Air II Design Concept

VENTILATION PERFORMANCE

Wind-tunnel optimized to maximize airflow and reduce unwanted noise, the GT-Air II’s three (3) intake and five (5) exhaust vents have been strategically shaped and positioned for improved cool air intake and hot air expulsion. A redesigned upper air intake shutter and enlarged lower air intake opening yield greater airflow throughout the entire helmet.

Ventilation Performance

AERODYNAMICS & NOISE REDUCTION

More than just aggressive styling and aesthetics, the GT-Air II’s progressive shell shape is compact and uniquely streamlined to reduce air resistance and drag. Improved, airtight window beading and an enhanced internal sun shield system prevent unwanted wind noise inside the helmet.

Shield System

SHIELD SYSTEM

The GT-Air II’s advanced shield system provides a large, distortion-free view, facilitates smooth and easy shield changes, features an all-new “first position” shield opening, and comes equipped with a lengthened internal sun shield for optimal relief from sun glare in one quick motion.

SAFETY

Few characteristics of a motorcycle helmet are as critically important as its first and second layers of defense, which is precisely why the GT-Air II features the SHOEI-exclusive Multi-Ply Matrix AIM shell and Multi-Piece/Multi-Density EPS liner.

COMFORT

The GT-Air II is equipped with a fully removable, washable, adjustable, and replaceable 3D Max-Dry Interior System capable of dissipating sweat 2x faster than traditional nylon interiors. Multi-layer cheek pads for comfort and helmet stabilization along with premium two-tone interior fabric and red stitching accentuate the GT-Air II’s unmatched fit and finish.

Bridgestone Launches BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41

Bridgestone Corporation has announced the launch of the BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyre, a new addition to its line-up of adventure touring motorcycle tyres. The newest offering in the BATTLAX tyre line features superior off-road performance and durability. Scheduled for release in the U.S. and Canada in January 2019 and in other regions in February 2019, the initial line-up of BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyres will include four front tyre sizes and five rear tyre sizes.

Adventure Motorcycling

The Adventure Touring Motorcycle Tyre made Specifically for Adventure Enthusiasts

The BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyre is engineered for predominantly off-road driving. This tyre’s superior off-road performance is the product of a high-rigidity compound as well as large blocks on the tyre’s perimeter that enable the tyre to exhibit strong traction on muddy surfaces. In addition, the BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 front tyre employs a new technology that optimises the block wall angle for added durability.

Tread Pattern


The BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyre boasts a block cross-section area roughly 30 percent larger than the previous generation tyre. This gives the new offering high grip and traction.

 Block Wall Angle Optimisation Technology (Front Tyre)

Bridgestone utilises a block wall angle optimisation technology in the design of the BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyre. Tyre engineers used this technology to optimise the block shapes in the tyre’s tread pattern to limit uneven wear. This technology is also utilised in front BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyres to prevent uneven wear and improve durability.
