Shoei RF-1200 Marquez Black Ant Helmet

Celebrate the youngest MotoGP rookie-champion since Kenny Roberts with the Shoei RF-1200 Marquez Black Ant Helmet. Rock it like Marc.

The pinnacle of perfection, the RF-1200 has been designed, from its inception, to be an industry leader in comfort, performance and protection. The wind tunnel tested shell has been optimized to provide a compact and aerodynamic shape, reducing wind-noise, buffeting and weight. Shoei has not only designed the RF-1200 to be one of the most comfortable helmets on the market, but also one of the safest, meeting both DOT and SNELL M2010 safety standards.

Whether you are a track day enthusiast or cross-country cruiser, the RF-1200 will allow you to ride with confidence, freeing you to concentrate on the road and most importantly....enjoy the ride.

Please Note: Wearing the Shoei RF-1200 Maquez Black Ant Helmet does not guarantee pole position performance on the track.

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.

Shoei RF-1200 Marquez Black Ant Helmet 4.8 5 697 697
Love it I love this helmet Premium helmet at the right price. Quite than most others and excellent wind flow. Highly recommend it. July 20, 2016
Nice overall but very loud Having owned several Shoei models, I settled on the RF1200 to replace my current helmet. The classic shape and overall design are very similar to the RF1100. The comfort and fit is also what I've come to expect from their products Pros: Wind drag and weight are very negligible even at high speeds. The redesigned visor and ratchet system have been beefed up and provide more solid operation and less vibration (especially when riding with the visor open). The modified interior chin area and reduced weight are also notable improvements. Field of vision is good. Cons: Very loud. Even with the visor sealed, the wind noise is considerably louder than the RF1100 (this is particularly relevant on cruiser or non-fairing bikes where the rider's chin is raised). The new ratchet design also deletes the visor "lock" system which was useful in conditions where the visor was prone to fogging. The visor is not interchangeable with earlier models. Overall, I'm happy with the improvements developed in the RF1200 and would recommend it for most riders. If it were not for the noise level, I would easily rate this a 5 star product. July 19, 2016
Awesome! 1. I trust the Shoei brand. 2. Their helmets fit my head (roundish, and runs snug). 3. The wind noise is ever so slightly louder than the Shoei Qwest, but with good earplugs, the difference is negligible. 4. Careful with the Sena SMH10R, the units don't fit in this helmet. I found out the hard way; with some modifications (took off the plastic housing on the SMH10R speakers), they fit nicely. 5. Matte black is sexy. 6. The helmet arrived in one-day even though I didn't ask for one-day shipping. Shoutouts to Revzilla. July 19, 2016
Great helmet Riding with this helmet I feel protected and the best part is like I am not wearing it it feels light and comfortable. July 19, 2016
Great Helmet Great comfort and light weight while providing great protection! I had the unfortunate opportunity to test the protection features of this helmet a few months after I received it while riding on the freeway, and it did very well. I will definitely be replacing my RF1200 with another one! July 19, 2016
Model of a great all-around full helmet This helmet is a solid example of an outstanding helmet without breaking the bank. Vision and air flow can always be improved, but as this helmet has it, I'd give it an 8 for both as I am sure improvements can be made. The size chart worked perfectly for me and I was able to order the right size the first time. I trust the Snell and DOT rating and hope I never have to get the firsthand experience. You already know Revzilla will get it to you yesterday. Visors are available and switching them is easy as well. I gave a 4/5 for features since there are a good amount of air intakes and the capability to have electronic equipment on it but no pre-installed tech on the helmet. July 19, 2016
Superb helmet Replaced my worn out Shoei X-12 with the RF-1200. The RF is lighter, has better airflow and a bit better vision. The major improvement is base of helmet shape: indented a bit so head turns do not hit jacket shoulder pads. Fit is a bit tight, but the helmet will break in with time. Superb helmet for the cost. Shoei quality is second to none. Very pleased! July 19, 2016
Finally found the right combination... After having ordered, tried on and returned half a dozen full-face helmets (thanks for your patience, Revzilla!), I finally found the combination of safety, quality, weight and comfort I've been looking for. I've typically ridden with a three-quarters helmet but as I continue to ride harder (and drivers behave more aggressively) I want the increased protection of full face. The RF-1200 delivers it without feeling like I've strapped a load of bricks to my head. Venting works very well (the front vent is a little noisy so I keep it closed). Added bonus is a reasonable price point. A real value, in my opinion. July 13, 2016
