Shoei RF-1200 Dominance Helmet

Dominating the sport helmet market, the Shoei RF 1200 Dominance Helmet represents years of development and evolution of the Shoei RF Helmet series, distilled into one of the most advanced sport helmets available. The RF1200 has evolved through both wind tunnel testing and on-track rider feedback into a helmet that is light-weight, quiet and most of all extremely safe.

Slim And Light Weight Design

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.

Shell Construction

The new slim design of the Shoei RF-1200, with its distinct accent cut line, widens the bottom of the helmet to help ease the process of putting the helmet on or taking it off. Further advancing the comfort of the AIM+ shell is the industry leading four shell sizes that the Shoei RF-1200 comes in. The impact-absorbing dual liner consists of two layers incorporating different densities, helping to effectively balance the potential impact applied to the more rigid shell.


Through advancements in the aerodynamic shape, improved interior linings and a new and improved shield system the rider will experience a very quiet and comfortable riding experience. The interior of the RF-1200 has achieved a balance of a comfortably soft fit and a firm, stable hold. The new design of the cheek pads also improves the motion of the neck, thus helping the rider to check traffic behind him/her for example.

Shield System

The new CWR-1 Pinlock shield features ribs on top and bottom of the shield to improve rigidity and eliminate bending of the shield caused by wind pressure or the opening and closing of the shield. Independent beading in the top and sides of the helmet help to keep the seal of the shield tight and eliminate any excess air. In addition to the CWR-1 shield, Shoei has developed a new base plate for the RF-1200. The Quick-Release Self-Adjusting base plate is spring-loaded and pulls the shield back onto the helmet, sealing it tightly against wind and rain. The addition of a new five-stage rotating dial allows for fine tuning of the base place for easy shield adjustments.


A large lower three position vent, three upper air vent intakes and four uniquely positioned upper exhaust outlet vents combine with the Dual Density EPS liner to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS liner.

Doesn't fit like RF1100 I don't know why Anthony says it fits the same as the RF1100. My RF1100 fits me perfectly, the RF1200 doesn't fit me at all. When I called Shoei asking if an RF1200 could be made to fit like an RF1100 with padding changes, the rep at Shoei told me the two helmets are shaped too differently. It's a great helmet though, just doesn't fit me. April 16, 2014
Perfect Helmet Positive points: great noise seal and great ernogomy. Negative: I didn't notice any. And i felt safer wearing the Shoei. Previous helmet: Arai Chaser 2. I do recommend. April 6, 2014
Shoei RF1200 Black and Green First off, Revzilla just rocks for shipping if you live in Phoenix. I ordered the helmet on a Tuesday at 10:30PM and it was waiting for me on Thursday. Thanks for setting the bar! After an accident where my Scorpion helmet took a hit, I searched to find the right replacement. I really enjoyed the Scorpion 1000 but wow it was heavy but I enjoyed the sun visor. So many people said Shoei is the helmet to get, especially the 1200 due to the small profile, weight and ventilation. They were right! Don't skip, go for the 1200. I went with the green and black to gain a little visibility and to match my new 13 ZX10R. The green is darker on the helmet but close enough. I lost my sun visor but the helmet makes you forget you even have one on so really it was a gain. March 29, 2014
Beautiful This was a Christmas gift from my wife and kids! The best helmet I've ever had. The finish is beautiful . The fit is spot on. I've only had one chance so far to use the helmet so it's not broken in yet. But it is already comfortable. It is very quiet and the field of vision is great. March 17, 2014
Absolutely love this helmet. I bought the RF-1200 Dominance in a medium and it was really tight at first but so far it has broken in perfect, it's comfortable, lightweight, and I love the Dominance Graphic, the photos don't really do this helmet any justice but I have the black/ grey version and most all the grey you see on the helmet is reflective at night and looks awesome. The Pinlock face shield does exactly as it's intended to and I've had no problems with fogging since I installed it. The venting works well and you get a lot of airflow from what I've experienced. It does get a little bit of noise at higher speeds but it's nothing to complain about. Overall I'd buy this helmet again and recommend it to anyone looking to pay a little more for a quality premium helmet that looks great on the road. March 13, 2014
great lid but price sucks! transitioned from a shoei RF-1K so here is my take on it. fit is rock solid for my 23 1/4" noggin' size shoei large. the cheeks are tight but feel good while riding. field of vision is much larger and i dig the stock clear visor for its thickness and rigidity unlike the recent purchase of the dark smoke that feels flimsy. ventilation is adequate and pin lock is on point. i tried like he!! to fog it up on a 12 degree ride but no dice. the airflow appears to be good and that eyebrow vent is a bonus. i love the neck roll and chin skirt which keeps 90 percent of airflow out to avoid that buffeting at highway speeds. the aerodynamics are superb and quick head turns are controlled not thrashing you around at high speeds. all in all, great upgrade from my 1K and my only gripes where the dark smoke visor material and price of lid. happy trails kids!

Another Brilliant Helmet from Shoei I was hours away from buying an RF-1100 when the RF-1200 came to market. I couldn't help myself. This helmet is brilliant. The ventilation is fantastic. The noise is decently good for a road/race helmet. The finish is perfect. Months later, it is just as pretty as when I bought it. I ride with a scala G9 and installation was super easy. No problems there. There is no buffet at any speed on my CBR600. That includes upright and a full tuck. Any speed. I love that I can get the emergency cheek pad release in this helmet without stepping up to a pure race level helmet that doesn't suit my G9 very well. (No ear pockets for speakers in race helmets). When shoei replaces this helmet, I will buy the replacement. Until then, this is the perfect helmet on the market for commute and canyon riding. January 27, 2014
To early to tell The fit is a little tighter than my RF 1100 and GT Air, but it also needs to break in. All I have been able lot to is one short ride for test purposes on Christmas Eve when I received it.....Initial impression is that it flows a lot of air....almost too much for this time of year and temperatures. I really like this helmet...My next challenge is to install speakers/Bluetooth communicator into it...More to follow December 30, 2013

Fred T: My X-Eleven got damaged when someone backed into my bike. The X-Thirteen for Snell 2015 hasn't come out yet so I decided to go with the RF-1200 as it's a new and lighter design with quite a few improvements over my X-Eleven. I commute daily and do track days twice a year in Level 3. Mar 26, 2014

Tim B: This is a pretty high-end helmet and if you're new to the track, expect that you will crash at some point. A crash can completely craze the side of a helmet (and screen) so apart from it being a very bad idea to reuse a helmet, you will probably not want to show up with a trashed looking helmet and will also regret how you damaged your new helmet.

Get a low-end new helmet or good used helmet. After you've come off your bike once or twice, re-evaluate where your skill level is and then decide on a more expensive helmet.

A shopper asked: Hi I currently haven RF1100 in a small, for the most part it fits pretty well. Once in a while I feel pressure on my forehead while wearing the helmet. My head measures 22" which is the large end of the small scale and a little smaller than the small end of the Med scale. One reviewer here says the Dominance fits a little smaller than the RF1100...Ahh!!! Which size should I get?
