Shoei RF-1200 Mystify Helmet

It’s not a mystery as to why the Shoei RF 1200 Mystify helmet shines. 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.

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 Mystify Helmet 4.8 5 516 516
Worth the money - just make sure it's right for your head shape. I ordered the RF-1200 after reading all of the good reviews. I wanted a safe helmet that was DOT and Snell certified, that wasn't too bulky. The helmet delivered in the looks and build quality department. Unfortunately, I have a head that is oval-shaped, which I found out after wearing the helmet and getting a painful hot spot on my forehead. Revzilla recommended going to a the 5mm center pad (the helmet comes with a 9mm pad), which alleviated some, but not all of the pain. (After 20 minutes of riding, I still had a sore, red spot on the middle of my forehead.) The vents in the helmet are ok - I couldn't really tell if it was flowing a lot of air. Also, the visor tends to whistle when it's fully raised and you're riding anywhere over 30 m.p.h. I ordered a medium, which was snug on my 23'' head. If I had a round or slight oval head, I'd be keeping this helmet. As it stands, I'll be selling it at a loss, and trying the Arai Signet-Q that I've ordered. August 25, 2015
Great but loud This is a great helmet, fit, weight, air flow, aerodynamics all A+ only real down side is the wind noise is really bad. You would think for this price point they would have this issue resolved. I rode with the Icon airmada before this helmet and that helmet does a much better job in the noise department. helmet manufactures need to get together so we can get helmets with all the features needed in one helmet not just a few in each. August 25, 2015
Great helmet. Awesome helmet. Great design. Amazing color. Just wish the shape would fit a little better to my weird head. August 24, 2015
I love it! Great helmet! Great helmet! I am upgrading from an older RF-1000. I ride an R6. The biggest bit for me is the added visios I can get in a full tuck. It feels like the rear of the helmet is a little higher so it doesn't contact a jacket/suit which helps me look farther ahead. Also the aeros are much better. Wind does push my head around nearly as much. Moral of the story every time I ride with this helmet I say to myself "why did I wait so long?". Great great great! August 24, 2015
Great all round helmet. I've had all kinds of brands of helmets. My first helmet was a Shoei RF-1000. Back then, the RF-1000 didn't feel 'premium'. It was more of an entry level helmet. A helmet that paves the way to better, higher spec lids. Anything below an RF-1000 was junk. Enter the RF-1200. It's a great all rounder for every day wear. You can tour, do trackdays, cruise, whatever your heart pleases with this helmet. Built quality is top notch. Easily leagues above the older models. It feels very solid. Tolerances are tight. Dare I say, it's close to the same build quality as an Arai, if not the same build quality. It's overbuilt. Crazy overbuilt. I could barely flex this thing. It's a solid shell. Paint quality is wonderful. So much so that I wish my bike had the same paint quality as the RF-1200. It's nice and thick. Painted like a German car. Fit is great, but that's very subjective. My head fits most helmets except for the extreme shapes. No hotspots. No pressure points. Nothing too tight. Nothing too loose. It fits just right. The fabric and padding are quite comfortable as well. Ventilation is great. I have a lot of race replica helmets. Those only vent effectively when in the full tuck position. The RF-1200 vents in any position which is great. I can feel the air on the top of my head, which is a nice. Sound wise, it's noticeable quieter than any of my race replicas, but I would still wear hearing protection due to wind noise. Field of vision is also quite nice. Not AGV Corsa wide, but wide enough. The clarity of the face shield insanely clear. Probably the clearest I have ever seen through. I have the dark smoke, and good lord, it's so clear! Weight wise, it's about average. Lighter than most on the market. But not as light as a race replica. Overall, the RF-1200 is the jack-of-all trades in the market. It does everything well, and generally does nothing wrong. Price-wise, it definitely has increased since the RF-1000 days, but what you get is a helmet that has been moved up to the premium stage. This helmet should be everyone's every day helmet. August 20, 2015
Awesome Helmet! Great helmet! I tried on multiple Arai helmets but none of them fit the crown of my head as I would have liked so it had me looking elsewhere. I ended up ordering this in matte black with the dark smoke shield and it's an awesome combo. Looks great and more than comfy for longer rides. Very aerodynamic, decently light and super quiet. I'm a 58cm head, right on the cusp of med/large so I got the medium. It's a perfect fit if only a bit snug and I assume it'll break in and loosen just a tad. Would definitely recommend it! August 17, 2015
Great upgrade over RF-1000 Have had the RF-1000 for 5 years and decided it was time to replace it. The RF-1200 fits just like the RF-1000, and feels much smaller and lighter (which it is). Air flow seems much better and the visor locking mechanism is much better. The chin vents really moves air across the visor to keep it fog free. Out of the box I took it on a 3,000 road trip on the West coast and it performed excellently. Definitely quieter than the RF-1000, I did all day rides at or above 60mph with no ear plugs, which is something I couldn't do with the RF-1000. August 17, 2015
Awesome Helmet The helmet is a little pricey but worth every penny! I'm fully satisfied that I purchased it and it looks great. Very lightweight too. August 17, 2015

Jamie S: I don't know about the RF-1100 sizes and how they changed for the RF-1200. I did find this chart on Web Bike Worlds web site. Very good unbiased reviews. I read those then buy from Revzilla.

The RF-1200 shell sizes...
Head Size Uses this Shell Size
I know for a fact the RF-1200 runs a little small. Based on my head measurement I should be a XL but it was too small. XXL fits me fine.

Hope this helps.

A shopper asked: The Shoei RF-1100 specifications indicate five (5) shell sizes and the Revzilla table indicates six shell sizes, with helmet size - shell size as follows: xxs-xs, xs-xs, s-m, m-m, l-l, xl-xl, 2xl-2xl and 3xl-2xl. The Shoei RF-1200 specifications indicate four (4) shell sizes but Revzilla only includes the old table. What helmet sizes go with what shell sizes for the Shoei RF-1200, and, specifically, what is the shell size for an XL helmet size (hopefully the XL helmet size continues to have its own XL shell size as opposed to using the same shell as the 2XL)?

Brandon R asked: Is the Shoei RF-1200 good for glasses wearers? Mar 30, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark L: That depends on the type of glasses. There is a channel in the pads that allows the arms of the glasses to settle into. I almost always wear sunglasses with the helmet, but some styles are more comfortable than others as the pads can put extra pressure on the glasses if they are too large. Mar 30, 2015

George D: Perfect No. Acceptable Yes. I wear bifocals and progressives and have no issues with the helmet. I do need to adjust the glasses after the helmet is on however. Awesome helmet,I love it. Mar 30, 2015

Randall H: I wear sunglasses with reading lenses with my RF1200. Works just fine and is comfortable. There is adequate room around the temples and the earpieces of the glasses do not cause pressure spots. I also have a wireless communicator installed in mine, and the speakers do not cause any discomfort with glasses. It's a great helmet. Mar 30, 2015

A shopper asked: I wear size M[edium] in a Shoei Neotec. When I tried the RF1200, i could barely get my head in it and found size L[arge] to be the right size for me in this model. Has anyone had similar experience with different model sizing? aka. Does the RF1200 run a size small? Thanks in advance :) May 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Marty B: I found it to be very consistent with mediums. I couldn't wear older Shoei's becaus I have a elongated head. I found that both the Arai and the the Shoei to be close. I chose the Shoei because it's smaller and quieter
I really like it and as I said the medium was spot on, at least for me
Hopefully that helps.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Parker F: If I recall correctly after watching all the product video's by Anthony on the RF1200 I'm pretty sure all of them had some sort of reflective striping on them to some degree. Some were more subtle, and others had a more pronounced stripe that reflects. What was interesting was the way Shoei incorporated the reflective material into the design without it being noticeable until light was shinned on it. Feb 6, 2014
