                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't know a helmet could be this good An all-around fantastic helmet, I didn't realized that a helmet could be this well fitting and comfortable! Great air flow, soft padding, a fairly wide field of view, and a pinlock included. I was nervous about buying a higher-end helmet online but the size guides are spot-on for finding your fit, after a few hundred kilometers riding it has only gotten more comfortable.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from First impressions. Just got it! Looks fantastic, great design, feels strong. Love the ridges on the shield that makes it stiffer. Seems to have plenty of ventilation. Fit is great too (size Large for me). My previous helmet was a Shoei RF-700 that is still in excellent condition, but time made the inside foam too soft to continue using it (though was stored for about ten years in its original box). Weight of the RF-1200 is only 63grams less than the RF-700, but it feels like it's more than that. I will report on my "while riding" thoughts later, I live near Montreal and we just got another 10cm of snow dumped on us yesterday...

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I have owned I've owed 20 give or take motorcycle helmets in my life. This one is the best so far. Very stable at speed, light, functions all work as they should. But IMO needs more venting. More quiet than most I have owned. High quality premium helmet. Very happy ;)

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally plunked down the cash for a Shoei Worth paying little more to get a quality product. I went from a Victory Modular helmet that I thought had great features and comfort for half the price, was wrong. In the long run it cost more to buy a cheap helmet first then switch up. How much difference could there be, right? I measured my head and it came within the XL size, I tried on a GT air which was my other choice but having the drop down visor on the Victory I didn't use it much at all and prefer sun glasses on bright days. When I received the RF1200 I quickly tried it on and wow was it tight on the cheek pads compared to the GT Air I tried on. I looked up new cheek pads and didn't feel like spending another $100. Took the pads out and laid the half that contacts the upper most part of cheeks between a box of flooring for couple hours. Re-tried fit and much better. First ride was without ear plugs to compare. Helmet is definitely quieter, still wind noise but notice big difference! I also opened the vents one at a time and you can hear and feel a difference, not tons of air moving through but works very good compared to old helmet which didn't feel like anything going through. The biggest difference, no neck strain!! I don't feel my head being pushed back like old helmet while going 70 MPH. In fact depending on wind direction it sometimes feels like not wearing a helmet. Awesome!! Then with ear plugs in it is very quiet. I really wish you didn't have to wear ear plugs in any helmet. Having the raised bottom on helmet above shoulders also helps with shoulder checking, my old helmet would snag my jacket when turning head to side to check. Note, I ride on a Victory CrossRoads - no windshield at all, so each bike or rider will be different. Bottom line - Worth paying more for quality, comfort and safety!!!

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good helmet I bought this helmet to replace my RF-1100. Though it is comfortable (a bit tight at first but normal), high quality, offers good visibility, just don't expect it to be so much greater than the RF-1100 which was already a pretty decent helmet. They've improved the visor (much more rugged and simpler mechanism), but the helmet isn't more silent than the RF-1100 (keep in mind I ride a Scrambler so no wind protection). The chin vent produces a high pitch whistle (on my RF-1100 it was the visor). So all in all, it's a great helmet, but just don't expect it to be more quiet or to feel lighter. Someone coming from a cheaper helmet will most likely see a huge improvement, but I'd say it's about 5% better than the RF-1100 :)

                  Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost perfect This is my second high-end Shoei. Overall it's very nice. I have an issue with the chin vent, it sits crooked with the slightest of bumps and looks like it's broken. Everything else functions OK. Photo chromatic lens is great but scratches very easily. Almost perfect.

                  Does the liner allow the wearing of eyewear? Is there enough of a slot to allow the arms to pass though?

                  Asked by: Bcbc
                  There is no problem to me. But maybe i need more bigger size.
