Bandit Tested feat. Shoei RF - 1200 helmet w/ Aaron Shoei RF-1200 Helmet Review SHOEI Helmet Production

Product Details

Since its introduction with the RF-105, SHOEI’S RF series has evolved through significant changes as a leading sport model helmet. Years of development, wind tunnel testing and on-track rider feedback have contributed greatly to this model’s growth, and it is with great pride and confidence that we present the SHOEI RF-1200®. One of the most important features of a quality helmet is that you hardly know it’s there protecting your head. SHOEI has reduced the weight of the RF-1200 by using a slimmer design and building a distinct line into the side of the helmet that also serves as an accent. As a result, the new SHOEI RF-1200 is lighter than any other Snell certified helmet in the current SHOEI lineup.

RF—1200 Helmet Fit
The helmet is well built, however the fit/size is not like a Shoei RJ Model. Ordered a Medium which was too tight. Had to return it.

Always Shoei
So far so good. It's a tight fit but feels good. I did some reading, finding out that my previous helmet was probably to big. I used that RF800 for years, and with this helmet I realized that the old one was never right, as I went on feel as opposed to correct fit. Bike Bandits videos and sizing charts are most helpful as well.

XXL too small for my big head.
I had the RF-700 for many years. I was very pleased with the RF-700. The RF-700 in the XXL was always tight but usable. When it was time for a new helmet, I looked at the Shoei. I stopped by 3 different cycle shops to try on the RF-1200 to see how they fit. Nobody had the XXl on their shelf. I took a chance and ordered on line. The RF-1200 looked great. But I could barely get the XXL over my head. It was way too tight and the chin section of the helmet hit my nose when I put it on. I had to return the helmet. It looks like there are still some of the RF-1100's around. The RF-1100's come in XXXL size. I'll wait until I see one on a shelf someplace to try it on before I buy one.

Expectation vs reality especially at high speed
I was recommended this helmet by an avid sport bike rider. I already knew to expect the outstanding comfort lightweight and low drag attributes. When I wore it though for the first time, it almost felt like the safest I could ever be in a helmet. Not only the fitting but the reduced noise was unbelievable. I'd recommend this to anyone for sure. The shipping was alsi phenomenally fast!

Looks Great But
The RF 1200 really looks great. It has better venting than earlier models and more of them with a good air flow that really helps in hot weather. The fit is tight on the cheek bones. I'm sure the cheek pads are standard size for a large helmet but may need to order some thinner ones. I have only had it for a couple of weeks so trying to see if I can get accustom to being snug. My last Shoei was a large but with a much looser fit. Also the helmet is shorter doesn't cover the chin as much as older model.

After much research......
Studied, id'd what my current HTC wasn't meeting the mark and researched!

Build and quality is what you expect! But overall it is the right helmet of the man choices. It has a snug fit with my melon but comfortable for the long haul.
Good sound reduction
Good ventilation
Good visibility
Easy use of your own shades

Nice helmet, well designed
My last helmet was an Arai Corsair which is an excellent helmet. It was five years old and I needed a new one. The new version of the Arai is quite expensive and I read about the new design of the RF1200 and wanted to give it a try. I have owned one of the older versions of the RF model and it was a good helmet, fit was ok, but just not as nice as the Arai. The new version is much better and the fit is very good. Shoei has made some great improvements to this line and the price is reasonable. Shipment from BikeBandit is fast as always!

super sleek and comfortable
I bought this helmet to replace an RF-1000 and it is was a great buy. Initially the fit felt very tight but probably because I have had my old helmet for so long. I am a daily commuter and after about a week, it broke in very nicely. This is the lightest weight helmet I have ever owned and the top and rear vents give me excellent air flow. ITs got a great shape, it doesn't move around at all in higher speeds and is suprisingly quiet. It looks great, feels great and was well worth the money. I highly recommend it.

I've owned a few Shoei helmets over the years, I needed a new helmet, so I went with what I know!
Dennis T on Jun 7, 2018
Word of mouth, heard great things from an experienced friend who has rode motorcycles for over 20 years. They swear by this brand and specifically enjoy this model.

I'm looking forward to using it this riding season.

Was looking for a snell-certified helmet, not only for the bike, but also the car on track days.
