Great find! I've been hunting for a deal on a proper Shoei for years, and they even have human sizes in a range of color options.

RF-1200 looks to be their entry level helmet (which is still safer than any other helmet you'll find on the market).
GT-Air has a built-in sun-visor, but doesn't list Snell approved. Not sure if they didn't want to pay for the testing or if they couldn't pass the testing. Hard to imagine a Shoei not passing any test thrown at it.
X-Twelve seems to be more for racing with provisions for tear-offs. I expect accessories will be expensive and hard to find in a few years.

I picked up a GT-Air since I wear glasses and can't easily add sunglasses. They didn't even charge sales tax!

Not sure why you're getting all the thumbs down. I just paid $700 for my gt-air.

Its either people thinking a ~$50 DOT-approved helmet from Wally is comparable, or deal snobs thinking anything under 50% off is a waste of time. Slickdeals can be disappointing at times.

When a company has a superior product, they don't need to discount and rarely do. I'd be happy at 20% off for a Shoei.

What an awesome deal... I bought my GT-Air for $1200 CAD just over a year ago. This makes me sad. Maybe I'll pick up a second one just in case. Legit the best helmet that money can buy. Added in my SENA and I can jam out all day while riding. I have the striped decal but looks like they're not offering that in this sale. Still, what a nuts of a sale

The only reason I bought my gt air from RevZilla was because the pendulum wasn't on sale here.

I'm still thinking of grabbing the rf1200 vessel from mc closeouts. Bought from them several times with zero issues.

Great deal OP. Thanks for posting. I think you are getting TD because you have price listed as $37333, which is a bit off Stick Out Tongue

My GT-Air arrived yesterday.

Can confirm no Snell sticker on the back, just DOT (as described for that model). Other than that it is flawless: precision design placement and not a stitch out of place. Also came with an anti-fog shield insert that I wasn't expecting.

These come with 2 SHOEI stickers so I can "upgrade" my old helmets and flip them on Craigslist. Not really, though the used helmet market is strange to me. Yuck.

Yeah I'm guessing it has something to do with the visor. I haven't worn mine on a ride yet as I'm waiting for some stupid BMW harness.

I noticed that it's very well made but the inner visor rattles ever so slightly.

Snell does not approve any helmets with internal sun visors. They want the EPS foam to be one uniform section
