Compact – Lightweight - Aerodynamic Design.
The state-of-the-art wind tunnel facility at SHOEI's Ibaraki factory is an integral part of the helmet design process. Thanks to time well spent in the tunnel from its very beginning stages of development, the RF-1200 boasts a more compact and aerodynamic shell than its predecessor, earning praise and appeal as SHOEI's lightest Snell-certified full-face model to date. Additionally, the RF-1200 offers a reduction in wind noise without blocking the road's "informative sounds" thanks to its optimal shell aerodynamics and liner components that have been designed to prevent unwanted road noises from entering through the bottom of the helmet.
Utilizing SHOEI's wind tunnels to help reveal the optimal balance between airflow and silence, SHOEI engineers equipped the all-new RF-1200 with a large, three-position lower vent shutter for ease of use with riding gloves, three upper air vents for optimal air intake, and four uniquely-positioned upper exhaust outlet vents to take better advantage of negative pressure suction-all yielding dramatically-improved cool–air intake and hot–air expulsion.
The RF-1200's CWR-1 shield provides a vast field of vision that rivals helmetless peripheral. In addition to protecting against 99% Of the sun's damaging UV rays, the CWR-1 shield offers a distortion-free view throughout the entire range thanks to SHOEI's 3D injection-molding process. Additionally, innovative new ribs on the top and bottom edge of the shield improve rigidity and eliminate the bending that may occur from wind pressure and during the opening and closing process, and an improved shield locking mechanism rounds out SHOEI's most advanced shield system to date.
Q-RE Base Plate System.
Coupled with the CWR-1 shield, the RF-1200's all-new QR-E base plate system facilitates quicker shield changes than ever before. Once a shield is installed, the strengthened spring-loaded base plates pull the shield back against the dual-lip, dual-layered window beading to ensure a wind and waterproof seal with each and every closure. Add to the mix an all-new five-stage rotating dial that allows fine-tuning the base plate's function more precisely than ever, and you're left with the most advanced base plate/shield combination on the market today.
Pinlock Anti-Fog System.
The all-new RF-1200 comes equipped with a Pinlock Fog-Resistant System, offering the most effective anti-fog protection in existence. A simple, one-step installation process makes every Pinlock lens easy to install.
Multi-Ply Matrix AIM+ Shell.
Few characteristics of a motorcycle helmet are as critical as its first-layer defense, which is precisely why the new RF-1200 features the SHOEI-exclusive Multi-Ply Matrix AIM+ Shell construction. Combining fiberglass with organic fibers, the RF-1200's proprietary AIM+ Shell is not only incredibly strong, it is extremely lightweight and compact. The RF-1200 is Snell M2010 and DOT approved.
4 Shell Sizes.
While some of our competitors rely on foam padding for fitting a wide range of customers, SHOEI offers an industry-leading four shell sizes in the RF-1200 to ensure a custom fit for heads between the sizes of XS-XXL.
Borrowing technology developed for SHOEI's groundbreaking VFX-W and X-Twelve racing helmets, SHOEI equipped the RF-1200 with its exclusive Emergency Quick Release System that allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from an injured rider's helmet. With the cheek pads removed, the helmet can be safely lifted from a rider's head without creating unnecessary strain in the neck area.
3D Max-Dry System II Interior.
The RF-1200 is equipped with a fully removable, washable, adjustable, and replaceable 3D Max-Dry System II interior. The 3D center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider's head, allowing for an extremely comfortable fit while maintaining the firm hold necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding. Additionally, the RF-1200's 3D-shaped cheek pads are available in multiple thicknesses for a customizable fit, and SHOEI's exclusive Max-Dry System II liner material absorbs and dissipates sweat and moisture twice as fast as traditional Nylon interiors.
Dual-Layer / Multi-Density EPS Liner.
The RF-1200's Dual-Layer, Multi-Density EPS liner not only provides enhanced impact absorption by utilizing varying densities of foam in key areas around the rider's head, it is designed to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS, further enhancing the RF-1200's superior ventilation characteristics. In addition to enhanced impact absorption and ventilation, the precise placement of multi-density EPS liner material yields a more compact, lightweight design.
The chin curtain can be inserted into the lower edge of the chin bar to reduce wind turbulence and noise.
The breath guard can be inserted into the upper edge of the chin bar to help reduce fogging by diverted exhausted breath down out the bottom of the helmet.
The RF-1200 is equipped with removable ear pads.

Each helmet model has small differences in its shape that ultimately affect the fit. For this reason, it is essential to test a helmet before buying it. Test whether it sits on your head properly by putting on the helmet and moving your head to the left and right, as well as up and down while holding the helmet firmly with both hands. If your head can move too freely within the helmet, we recommend that you try a smaller size. If you feel local pressure points, then choose a helmet that is one size larger, or perhaps try on a different model.
Wrap a cloth measuring tape around your head just above your eyebrows and ears. Pull the tape comfortably snug, read the length, repeat for good measure and use the largest measurement.
