Shoei RF-1200 Mystify Helmet

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

First Motorcyle Helmet and it is Fantastic I spent weeks researching and ultimately had to drive 130 miles to do a real head to head comparison between several helmets. When all was said and done, this one fit the best. Initially I was concerned that the medium was going to be too tight but it has settled in nicely and now I don't even notice I'm wearing it. I'm still learning to ride and my speeds have been relatively low so it is hard to determine how well the vents flow air through the helmet. Wind noise is very low and I was still able to enjoy the roar of the Monster engine. The white red and green finish on this model is simply stunning and the reflective areas of the paint are a nice touch. April 7, 2014
Fantastic Helmet! This is my first Shoei helmet. I was previously riding with a Nexx Carbon XR1R, which was a very nice fitting and light weight helmet. That said, the Shoei RF-1200 is far superior. It might weigh a little bit more than the Nexx Carbon XR1R, but it's much more comfortable to ride in. It has less windage/wind buffeting. It feels lighter when worn. It offers better visibility. It is quieter and has better ventilation. It's a step up in every sense, and it cost less than the Nexx. The R&D that Shoei put into this helmet really paid off. I'm very pleased. The RF-1200 has easily become my helmet of choice. One more thing. Even though the RF-1200 is nominally heavier than my old Carbon XR1R, because I wear a size S in the Shoei, my RF-1200 might actually weigh less than the more expensive Nexx helmet because the RF-1200 is manufactured in multiple shell sizes. The Shoei certainly has less windage, which alone makes it significantly more pleasurable to wear. March 18, 2014
An improved version of an already great helmet! I recently "tested" my RF1100 in a low speed crash, and it performed well. The protection is worth the price ten fold. I replaced my 1100 with the RF1200 Mystify, and I am very pleased with the changes. From the protection standpoint, I expect this helmet to be at least as good as the 1100. The 1200 is a little bit lighter, and the shell is smaller. Because of the new shape, the helmet seems to be much more stable at speed when you turn your head. cuts through the air better. Airflow through the helmet is just as good as the 1100, which I thought was amazing, but the 1200's redesigned liner seems to make quite a difference in lowering wind noise... another big plus! The 1200 also adds the pinlock shield and speaker recesses for your Bluetooth speakers, which are both great updates. Great flow, more stability, fits great, less noise, anti-fog pin-lock shield, and speaker recesses are all big plusses to me. The only drawback I have seen is that the liner is connected to the outer shell, so a Bluetooth headset with the physical clamp cannot be clamped to the outer shell. My Cardo Q2 Pro has an adhesive mount, but with the "cutaway" on the lower shell (nice touch otherwise) keeps the adhesive pad from fully contacting the shell. hence, the cardo pod isn't as securely fastened as I would like. Other than that minor issue, this is a great helmet. Well worth the money. March 17, 2014
Great Helmet Helmet has great aerodynamics, head doesn't get jerked when doing a side check. Padding on the inside of the helmet is very comfortable and visibility is good. March 17, 2014
The best helmet I've ever purchased by far!! I've been looking at helmets for over a year trying to decide on one!! After watching numerous reviews on many different brands and models I went with the RF1200 Mystify !! Best decision I ever made. Fits perfectly and it's the lightest helmet I've ever worn! No negatives from me on anything about this helmet !! If your looking to replace or up grade this is the helmet to really consider!! Can't wait to get the photochromic lens to finish it off !! February 17, 2014
A solid step forward I'm very fond of my RF-1100. But the 1200 is a significant improvement. Venting (apparently copied from the X-12) is a good deal stronger. The neck roll, which looks like it was cloned from the GT-Air, results in a significantly quieter ride. Aerodynamically improved. Head checks result in little or no “pull”. And the included pinlock is always a plus. An altogether worthy successor to the already excellent RF-1100. February 8, 2014
Top of the line lid for less than x12 or Arai Corsair. Fits like every other shoei you've ever worn. Which is awesome. If you where an xl in any of the other rf model helmets order the same size and rest assured it will fit perfectly. Its super quiet and the pinlock works great. 100% recommend. January 27, 2014
Oval Head & a Large Jaw I'm just going to review fit. Since I am new to full-faced helmets, I'm not qualified to judge the 1200's performance. I've always used an open-faced HJC and thought it was the right shape for my head. However, when I tried on the 1200, it fits like it was custom made for the crown of my head. Turns out my head is medium/intermediate oval, which the 1200 is designed for. I measured my head, had my mom measure, had my friends measure, and everyone came up with a 23 1/2" circumference so I got the Large, even though I wear a 7 5/8" hat. SHOEI recommends an XL for a 7 5/8 hat. As I said, the Large fits, but it is pretty tight. I tried on an XL at the local shop, and it was just a little too loose. Here's the thing; I have full cheeks and a large square jaw. The cheek pads are super-tight, and even if they break in 30%, they are still going to be very tight. Sooo, if you have a full round face, you might have to get some smaller cheek pads down the line. This issue doesn't bode poorly for the quality of the helmet though. It's just something to consider. I got the white/red/green version and it is stunning. Really a beautiful helmet and design. Classy. I'm 43 and not into showing off, and this design/color is striking without making me look like a squid. The Revzilla experience was awesome. It really is as good as all the other reviewers say!

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

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.
