Our Two Cents
Well the EXO-GT3000 is a modular helmet but unlike the EXO-900X the chin bar is not removable. The GT3000 is going to be your more traditional flip up chin bar style helmet. A few things really jump out at me just looking at the exterior of the helmet. The first is the shape of the helmet. It has a very sleek and aerodynamic design to it. The other feature is the venting. It has a large chin vent and two top vents controlled by a single cover. There are also two rear exhaust vents. They sit just behind the ridge of the spoiler of the outer shell. This causes an area of low pressure with helps draw air out of the vent and promotes better air flow through the helmet. The interior of the helmet has removable padding that can be washed or replaced if they ever wear out. When you pull out the cheek pads you will find speaker pockets for a communication system. The speaker pockets have foam plugs in them when not in use. The fit of the helmet to me felt like a pretty standard fit maybe just a hair on the snug side. I am typically a medium in most brands and the medium EXO-GT3000 fit my head really well. Helmets that have an Intermediate Oval or Neutral Round shape fit me best so I would say the GT3000 falls under that shell shape. If you find yourself between sizes then I might suggest going up in size. The EXO-GT3000 also features the AirFit liner inflation system. This gives you the ability to tweak the fit and snug up the cheeks and neck roll for a good custom fit. It also helps create a good seal around the base of your neck and along the jaw line to reduce wind and road noise. The aerodynamics and design of the GT3000 is going to be for your street, sport touring, and commuting rider who will be in a more upright riding position. The release for the chin bar and the lever for the Speed View drop down visor is easy to find and operate even with gloves on. The EXO-GT3000 is much lighter in weight when compared to a lot of other modular helmets on the market. Overall I am really impressed with the quality and build of the GT3000. – Aaron 04/15/2015
