GT-Air II BONAFIDE – Features
The SHOEI GT-Air II BONAFIDE helmet features aerodynamic properties. It’s an enhanced feature created from extensive wind-tunnel testing. It comes with a multi-piece EPS liner that enhances ventilation and impact absorption.
SHOEI integrated a molded air spoiler to the GT-Air II BONAFIDE to decrease drag, lift, and dimensional pressure. It helps keep the riders neck comfortable and strain-free while driving.
The GT-Air II BONAFIDEs remade upper air intake vent is positioned adequately for proper ventilation. It helps maximize the flow of air into the helmets interior.
For the extended lower intake vent, it helps decrease shield fogging while further boosting ventilation. Both the lower and upper intake vents are easy to shift even when accessing them with gloved hands.
When it comes to its neck/rear vents, it allows for improved air exhaust. Hence, the presence of three intakes and six exhaust vents.
