Hey fullmonte. I've spent a bit of time in the RF-1100, and compared to the GT-Air, they do actually feel fairly similar. In the video we weigh a Large RF-1100 at 3.65lbs, and the Large GT-Air was 3.7lbs. Obviously the biggest differences are the GT-Air has the internal drop down sun visor, a different outer shell shape, and a different ventilation system. The top scoop on the GT-Air bring in a LOT of air, but it's right up on top of your head, whereas I feel the RF-1100 might have a bit more of an even ventilation throughout the helmet.

In terms of fit I felt that the GT-Air was a little on the snug side compared to the RF-1100, with the same overall internal shape.

So I guess the short answer would be... kinda. If you have any other questions feel free to ask!
