Shoei RF-1100 Transmission Helmet

The RF1100 Transmission is a sleek new graphic built upon the award-winning RF-1100 chassis.  

AIM+ Shell Construction:

  • Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and professional riders’ feedback
  • High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient
  • 5 Shell Sizes and six EPS liner configurations present increased fit options that comfortably fit most head sizes
  • A third generation Tail Fin, integrated into the bottom rear beading in combination with the Shell-Integrated Spoiler, allows smooth airflow that reduces drag and lift

CW-1 Face Shield

  • The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces 

Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self-Adjusting) Base Plate System

  • Q.R.S.A. base plate allows for tool-less face shield removal and installation. 
  • Every time the shield is lowered, the spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly, ensuring a wind and waterproof seal between shield and helmet

Variable Ventilation System

  • Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior
  • Top outlet vent is separate from the Shell-
  • Integrated Spoiler, allowing it to be positioned for optimum flow-through ventilation
  • Four rear outlet vents allow for adjustment of airflow based on riding position
  • Enlarged lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation
  • The rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust
  • Breath guard and chin curtain included 

Interior System

  • The entire interior lining (cheek pads, crown liner and chin strap covers) is easily removed to allow cleaning
  • Each component of the inner liner is ergonomically designed to offer the ultimate in safety, fit and comfort
  • Eyeglass compatible

Tech Specs

  • RF-1100 Transmission Graphic
  • 5 shell sizes
  • Weight: 3.54 Pounds / 1604grams (based on size medium / solid color)
  • DOT and Snell M2010 approved

Shoei RF-1100 Transmission Helmet 4.8 5 629 629
Great Buy! My 1st Helmet and i sure did my homework on them... I recommend that you check out the sizing guides and actually use them. i bought a small and at first it was a bit tight but that's how they are suppose to be! and now it fits great after a few uses it conforms to your face... Quiet helmet, Great Retro style old school :) i get allot of comments on how cool it looks... RevZilla is awesome! April 28, 2014
Excellent, just a few minor squaks Really like this helmet, it was a little tight in the cheeks when new but now I'm used to it (or the pads are broken in). Absolutely rain-proof when the vents are closed (fairly quiet when the vents are closed also). Too bad it didn't include a pinlock-ready shield. May 6, 2014
Well Worth the Price I have long been wanting a Shoei helmet so when these went on sale I knew it was time. I really wanted something that was a little more racy looking, DOT and Snell approved but also looked like it belonged on a Harley. This helmet did not disappoint! Got the matte black and purchased a Shoei CW-1 Spectra Face Shield. And now I'm the coolest looking chick on the block! (Well, I think so anyway...heh) The review and videos for the Shoei said it would be a bit louder than a touring helmet but I was still a little surprised as to how much louder it was than my old HJC. In fact, I do get a whistling sound when the wind hits me just right or I turn to my head to look over my left shoulder (and I only get that when looking left, oddly enough!) Still, for the quality, price, look, feel, fit and safety it's is something I can live with. This helmet fits like a glove and I went off the measurements listed on the web site as to the size I needed. So they were very true to size in that respect. Overall, a winner! May 5, 2014
Great helmet, glad I got sale price. I originally ordered a small size and found that I actually needed an XS so I would say it's not true to size, because I should have been a small size. The noise level is alright, I'm sure it's better then a $50 helmet but I honestly thought it was going to be a little quiet then it is. I definitely feel protected & know if something happens & I crash, this helmet is going to take care of my head. I do recommend this product but I wouldn't have paid the full $550 it originally sold for. May 5, 2014
I was amazed at how quiet the helmet is. It really keeps the the wind out. I really like the helmet. I would recommend this to friends. By far is the best helmet that I have owned. May 5, 2014
Good fit, Good value I'm glad I chose this helmet, it was well worth the money. The sizing was exactly as expected, I measured out to an XL on the sizing chart, and the XL helmet fit quite well. It's amazingly comfortable, sometimes I forget I'm wearing it until a bug pings off the face shield. The airflow is very good, if I open all the vents at speed it's almost enough to make my eyes water. On chilly mornings with the vents closed, it's plenty warm. The chin curtain is a nice bonus. One of the biggest things I've noticed is how well it performs in the wind compared to other helmets I've tried. It doesn't try to lift and it doesn't fight me when I turn my head to do shoulder checks. On a long ride it makes an amazing difference. I'm also impressed with the fit and feel of the controls. Opening and closing the shield and opening and closing the vents all have a smooth solid feel, and they're very easy to operate with gloves on. April 29, 2014
RF1100 Great fitting helmet and looks great but the whistling noise is bothersom. April 28, 2014
Great deal on closeout My old Arai helmet is 14 years old so I started looking for a replacement last fall. The RF 1100 had excellent reviews and I was intrigued by the soon to be available CW-1 Photochromatic Transition shield with Pinlock capability. The helmet is quiet with excellent airflow and superb visibility. The only negative is my glasses frames are held by the helmet and do not stay down on my nose. April 28, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Adam K: Excellent helmet. Very comfortable and light. Great outward vision. And it was on sale. Bought one for myself and one for my wife. (She loves hers too) May 10, 2014
Ray W: Shoei's reputation is very good. Anthony's video review praised it. Apr 24, 2014
Mark S: The Rf1200 fit too snug and honestly small all around in the way it fit on my head. I actually like the slightly bigger shell on the 1100, as its what Im used too. And I got a great graphic for 100 $ less than a plain 1200. Video reviews at zila are really awesome for research, but nothin like actually tryin it on your noggin! Mar 30, 2014
Abu R: wanted to upgrade to a premium helmet and the price and look was right with this one.
I have to say the pictures don't do justice for this one. I got the red color one and its a really good looking helmet.

Jacob C: I've always wanted a Shoei but they are a bit expensive. I couldn't pass up this closeout price...not to mention I love that clean, old school graphic. Jan 24, 2014
Matthew V: The Red/Black/Silver color scheme makes this helmet stand out (without having to wear fluro!) and that's what you want....you want the other drivers to see you not blend into the background. I had the unfortunate experience of coming off my bike because someone pulled out from their driveway without looking as I was coming around a blind right hander, might've had something to do with me wearing all black!! Jan 1, 2014
Andrew H: Great closeout price on an excellent product. Even though there is a newer model this one is still very good and should last for years. Dec 28, 2013
Mats L: Great price and free shipping
Easy to use website and you do paypal!!!
