What's this?

Shoei RF-1200 Phantasm Helmet

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.

Quietness

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.

Ventilation

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.

Features:

  • Four shell sizes
  • Dual density EPS liner
  • Superior ventilation
  • 3D Max-Dry System II Liner
  • E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) CWR-1 Shield System
  • Neatly secure chin strap
  • Includes Pinlock pins and lens insert
  • Includes breath guard and chin curtain
  • Snell M2010 and DOT Certified

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

Best Helmet So far
Have rode in this helmet for about 100 miles and I am in love with it. I am coming from a Varient and this helmet is head and shoulders above it. My head barely moves with any sort of gust of wind. Drove by a field a felt the wind push my bike, but my head stayed in position. Pick lock system works just as advertised, as it's getting down in the 40's here in New England the pinlock really shows you how awesome it is. Rest of the shield was fogged but not the pinlock section. The weight of the helmet is very light as well and SUPER quiet, I found it crazy how quiet it was, communicator speakers are so much clearer, I find myself turning the volume down.<br>I would recommend this helmet to anyone looking for the best of the best, I can't find one thing I don't like about this helmet. Maybe wish it was a few bucks cheaper, but even that I find it well worth the price for all the advantages you get with it. Well done Shoei

Phantasm graphics are awesome
This helmet fits very comfortably. Air flow is not that noticeable but does work. Air flow might be different for me because of +100*F temps. With all vents open this helmet is somewhat noisy. No worse then any other helmet I have owned. Not sure if something like a Sena bluetooth would have good sound with the wind noise. I wear ear plugs so does this really matter? Field of view is really good. I like the thick shield and the mechanism is solid. I have the Phantasm graphic and it looks really trick. Great helmet besides the wind noise but with ear plugs no problems.

Amazing Helmet
This is my second helmet, but my first name brand one. This helmet is like having a pillow around your head. It is comfortable. it's a little snug at first, but thats to be expected when pulling it out of the box. I haven't used it in cold weather yet, but it does come with the chin curtain and the face guard thing. This helmet is amazing, super light, awesome graphics, but most importantly...my head is protected!

Awesome helmet
After about an hour of search for the best-fitting helmet, I decided on the RF-1200. This helmet fits extremely snug initially, and after hours of use ends up forming perfectly to your head and face. The ventilation system keeps your head cool, while not sacrificing the quiet design. A fairly light helmet, which causes no strain to your neck after hours and hours of use!<br><br>2013 Yamaha YZF-R6

I've been using this helmet for 6 months now and have found this helmet to be very comfortable, and relatively quiet. Highly recommended I even installed bluetooth with little pain and suffering.

Love this helmet!
When I started shopping for my first motorcycle helmet to go with my first motorcycle it was a toss-up. Should I go with the entry level priced helmets, the outlandish graffic helmets, or listen to the elite and go with Shoei or Arai? It all came down to going in for a helmet fitting and letting the Shoei RF-1200 grace my head with it's glory. The fit is superb, the interior fabric is plush, the peripheral vision is awesome, and the list goes on. I feel extremely comfortable in the RF-1200 with it's weight, aerodynamics, and air flow while riding my naked FZ-07. Aside from the ever plenty DOT/Snell/ECE standards, that's what choosing a helmet is all about right?<br>Even if there ever is an instance where I do go down, I know Shoei has got my head covered (the emergency cheek pads are a nice addition to safety too).

Shoei RF-1200 Phantasm Helmet
I have owned many helmets throughout my riding career starting off with(in chronological order) HJC, Shoei RF-1000 diabolic, Arai RX-Q, Arai Signet Q and now my new ShoeiRF1200 Phantasm. I have to say I don't if if it is the shape of my head but this is by far the best fitting helmet I have ever owned. I have plenty of room in the mouth/nose area unlike the Arai. It also leaves room for glasses if you happen to wear them or you want to leave the visor up and ride with sunglasses.<br><br>My measurements came in exactly at the very top end of a size medium so I that is what I ordered. It fits perfectly snug around my crown and the cheek pads are slightly tight but remember that the helmet will break in 8-10%. I love the graphics on the helmet as they look much better in person than they do in the video or in a picture. I love the pinlock idea because I cannot stand when a visor fogs up whilst riding.<br><br>In any case I not only have I owned a few helmets I tried on almost all the new models out there before making the decision and this was definitely the one.<br><br>I just traded in my 2011 Triumph speed Triple Se for the new Aprilia Tuono V4R ABS in white an this helmet couldn't be more a match. Shoei really out did themselves on this one!

Worth The Investment
*Previous helment owned: Sparx*<br>I bought the RF-1200 a week after its release and since then I have nothing but positive comments to write about it.<br><br>Pros: Lightweight, aerodynamic, sturdy feel/quality, fitment is superb.<br><br>Cons: Price (?)<br><br>For those that are looking to buy a local commuter helment can easily go for the RF-1100 which is greatly cheaper but for those that may possibly go for track days should invest in this helment. I'm very satisfied with my investment because protecting my head is top priority and Shoei sure nailed with it with this product.

Dominic S on Apr 24, 2014
I chose this item because I was looking for a smaller, more fit helmet. I had help from the Revzilla team who have helped me narrow this helmet down to my exact "want's". I also purchased a dark smoke CWR-1 shield with this just to give it that extra style and better visibility during the day.

Does this ship with a tinted visor, or just the clear one?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Just clear visor but tinted visors can be purchased from Revzilla also. Good thing is new visors purchased can be used with existing pinlock lens that comes with helmet.
I'm in between size. Medium is small and have several hot spot and large is loose. What's your recommendations for a comfortable and safe fit?
A shopper on Jan 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would get the medium and break it in with a soccer ball put the ball inside this helps with it being to tight in your cheeks. I was in between sizes to and I got the small when I first put it on I thought I would have to take it back it hurt bad to take off it was really tight and after wearing it a couple time and putting the soccer ball in it. I'm glad I stayed with the smaller size it fits perfect now its so comfortable and if you have a hard time taking it off because it hurts your ears get a helmet liner its the heat out body cooling system helmet liner its from Bilt
What is the weight of this helmet?
banks619 on Oct 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Size medium Shoei RF1200 weighs 3lbs 7oz
Is the skull print on the back of the helmet reflective (where the DOT sticker usually is)?
Tom H on Nov 11, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It's midly reflective but not a whole lot due to its matte finish.
