Here comes Shoei RF-1200 helmet which exceeds the previous ever popular RF-1100. This helmet is extremely popular now cause of the many improvements making it the must have helmet today.

What is Shoei RF 1100 known for?

This helmet is known for its charming simple look and aerodynamic design and the price is pretty reasonable too. In 2003, this charming helmet was launched and from then on this helmet has been known far and wide. This helmet is designed to captivate regular motorists because of its streamline design, aerodynamic design, vision clarity, and great ventilation as well as its noise reduction capability.

Why is Shoei RF 1200 better?

When it comes to surpassing its predecessor, it might be hard but the makers did a splendid job and surpassed any expectations. Let me give you some features why I have said that.

1. How does it Fit?

Fits to most people because of its oval shaped internal intermediate fit
Not available for people with football or spherical shaped heads.

2. Comfort

It is comfortable because of its hypoallergenic lining that Is removable and washable.
Softer fabric is used on the lower half and a much tougher upper part
When it comes to reducing sound and sealing wind away from the face, this helmet made a pretty good job because of its thick neck roll that hugs perfectly

3. Clarity of Vision

Outstanding vision because it uses CWR-1 shield
Gives you full view including peripheral vision which is a problem to most helmets.

4. Weight

When it comes to weight, this helmet is incredibly light. In fact they strongly claim that it is one of the lightest lid certified by Snell.
This is quite small too because they have made the external size smaller to medium and made it more stable

5. Ventilation

It actually has the same system it uses with the RF-1200 but they added a vent at the forehead

6. Graphic

Elegantly designed
Great paint job
Solid clean lines

7. Price

This is a steal, cause despite a bit more expensive than its predecessor –believe me it is all worth it.
The price is still in the middle range but is worth every penny because of its excellent upgrades

Personal Good Review of the New Shoei RF-1200 Motorcycle Helmet

The visor that this new helmet uses is an improved version as well. It is more durable and will not flex easily unlike other helmet visors that bends and breaks fast by simply opening them up. Another good innovation is that they use a better quick release mechanism attachment that makes it very simple to use. There are also 5 ratchet adjustment positions that enables the motorist to reduce noise and seal out wind inside the helmet.
When it comes to its physical appearance, its simplicity will elegantly captivates you. It has its classy clean look that is quite a stunner especially its white color.

Shoie also made it a point to make opening the vents quite easy . It is well made give you a hard time to adjust it.

The cheekpads can be removed easily as well which is quite handy in emergency situations as makes it quite easy to remove the helmet.

Another thing I love about this helmet is the low noise capability and wind noise disturbance. This is very useful when driving cause you can hear better sounds especially horns and sirens.


For me, Shoei RF 1200 is a definite winner when you are looking for an excellent helmet with a sporty look at a reasonable price. It is very good for all types of riding, may it be commuting, touring or just plain riding, this helmet will meet your expectation. It will give you good value for money that gives the rider a sense of security cause of its great innovations as well as comfort. I strongly recommend to buy this helmet in Top Helmet 2017.
