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.


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.

Best bang for the buck! For the price you get cool graphics (not flashy w/ a little sinister), light weight, pin lock lens right off the box, snell and dot certified. March 3, 2015
comfort and style This helmet is not a flashy helmet. I love the design. Most of all, I love its comfort!!! November 17, 2014
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? 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). September 23, 2014
Great fit and comfort. This helmet is light, fits great, looks great and provides the protection necessary. Highly recommended. September 22, 2014
Great Product I used this helmet mainly for canyon carving and city riding. Overall I think it's a good helmet. My first Shoei so far. I definitely love the style and designs. Much best quality than my cheaper AGV K-4 and SevenZeroSeven I previously owened. It feels slightly heavy but then again I have their XL helmet . Visibility is great and visor seals tight. It has a bit of road noise at freeway speed but still better than cheaper brands. I would recommend this helmet for those focus and quality and safety. August 2, 2014
GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR Doesn't get any better than this. Great Air Flow, Quite, and Weightless. July 14, 2014
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! 2013 Yamaha YZF-R6 June 30, 2014
Great helmet, adjustment needed for fat face I am 5'11" and 260 lbs. So yeah i am an overweight guy with chipmunk cheeks. This is for you fat faces out there like me. The helmet is absolutely beautiful. And by far the lightest helmet i have ever owned. The only downside for me is the fit. If you have my chipmunk cheeks then you will not get a perfect fit. Normally i would prefer the large for a perfect fit around the crown of my head, but even with the 31mm pads (smallest pads) the fit is way too tight on my cheeks. So i have an xl helmet with the 31mm cheek pads. Now my crown is a bit looser than i would like, but my cheeks fit perfect. Its not enough to make me return it, but its just enough to bug me. The overall comfort though is amazing ( minus the slight looseness). The extreme light weight, softness of the liner, pads and chin strap just make this helmet a joy to wear. It was raining the day i got mine in the mail and the wife was laughing while i sat there with my helmet on watching tv all night and cursing the rain. It was that comfortable. June 10, 2014

A shopper asked: 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? Jan 26, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dale M: 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 Jan 30, 2014
Reply to Dale Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Nghia P: My best recommendation prior to buying any helmet is to try it on in a local store however, if this isn't possible then I would say go for a medium. As always, Revzilla does offer free exchanges so if it isn't completely perfect when it comes to a medium size then you can try either a different size or a different brand like Arai that'll better suit your head shape. I hope this helps! Jan 29, 2014
Reply to Nghia Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Isaac T: Go with the medium. I've been wearing mine a couple weeks now and it's no longer too snug. The padding should break in eventually for a better fit. You can also buy different size cheek pads, from what I remember. Ask a local dealer who carries Shoei about different insert sizings if it's still too tight after a couple weeks. Jan 29, 2014
Reply to Isaac Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Visham R: Buy different sized cheek pads and replace stock with ones that fit your head.

Good luck . This helmet is far better than the RF1100.
