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.


  • Four shell sizes

Shoei RF-1200 Phantasm Helmet 5 5 26 26
Awesome helmet I never really liked wearing a helmet but ive been down once before and i promised my wife i would get one. I purchased this one based on Shoei's reputation, Revzillas review and from the advice of the guys i work with who all have Shoei helments. I have to say, i love this helmet and dont mind wearing it at all. Its pretty quiet and the air flow is ok, in traffic i keep the shield cracked open. I purchased the transition shield and highly recommend it as well! Safe riding to all. July 20, 2015
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! July 19, 2015
best helmets for the price My second RF-1200. Other one is in plain white color. Snell rating. Great craftsmanship. interior liners use snaps instead of cheap velcro and all come out (ears and top) unlike other companies where only the ear pieces come out. helmet comes with the pinlock visor, where other companies make you buy it for an additional cost. only complaint is that airflow could be better, have to open the visor a bit on hot days, but it never fogs up and doesn't get unbearable. June 15, 2015
Great Helmet 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. May 8, 2015
This is a BA helmet I love this thing! This is my first quality helmet, after owning several HJC's then stepping up to some Icon's and now this. Everything about it is top shelf compared to what I was used to. Fit as described in the video is spot on. Wind noise is minimal with no whistling to speak of. Graphics are killer. If you're looking to step up into a high quality helmet, look no further! May 7, 2015
Great helmet overall This helmet has excellent craftsmanship, as would be expected. Fit is a little more snug then I expected, but not uncomfortable. Wind noise is greatly reduced, compared to other helmets I've worn. You hardly notice your wearing it, as the weight is evenly distributed, and the visiual field is awesome. I have the transition face shield on it and it works awesome. I highly recommend you purchase this helmet. The $ is a lot, but it's worth it. Also buy the transition shield, you won't regret it. May 4, 2015
My first helmet, thoroughly enjoying it. First off, I had buyers remorse for a good minute because I couldn't debate between solid black or graphics. I am happy I got the graphics as people are always complimenting the chameleon paint job. Also, I wrecked at 75mph on the highway and I scuffed my chin on the highway. I am not hurt and the helmet is still perfectly fine. It is comfortable once broken in, I ordered a bell qualifier dlx as a spare helmet and it works for a passenger, but I can never use it after using my shoei. Surpreme quality, with ahigh price tag. April 25, 2015
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

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.
