Shoei RF-1200 Helmet Review

shoei rf-1200 helmet

Nominated as one of the top ten full face motorcycle helmets of 2021. Not only by Pick My Helmet and Two Motion, but also and many other notable motorcycle gear review sites. The Shoei RF-1200 sits comfortably near the top spot of Shocked Sockets best motorcycle helmets for 2021.

The RF-1200 racing helmet followed on from the Shoei RF-1100. An already vastly popular model with incredibly difficult shoes to fill for any successor. Taking most of the pros from the RF-1100 but improving upon the model’s wearability and comfort.

Design, protection & comfort

The Shoei RF-1200 Custom Fit motorcycle helmet is available in four different shell sizes. This means that you can choose the exact size you want and do not need to worry about the helmet looking too big on your head. It will give you the same level of protection in the smaller versions, as well as in the larger versions of the helmet.

This helmet is equipped with the revolutionary AIM+ technology for high speed races and adventure trips. The structure of the helmet is extremely lightweight and flexible, providing maximum protection. This resulting from layers of compounds like fiberglass, organic fibres and more.

If there is one thing to define this helmet it is the comfort. The interior lining of this spectacular helmet is just as high quality as you would come to expect from Shoei. Every piece of the hypoallergenic inner lining can be removed and washed. The helmet also features an amazingly soft and comfortable lining in the lower half of the helmet.

Shoei RF-1200 Visor

The Shoei RF-1200 comes with a state-of-the-art version of the shield you will find in its predecessors. The CWR-1 shield not only has a quick release self adjusting base plate, but it has excellent features to make off-road riding easier and safer.

When the weather turns nasty, you’ll be glad to have the Shoei RF-1200 motorcycle helmet. This adventure-ready helmet features an advanced Pinlock anti-fog system to keep your line of sight clear in all conditions.
