Shoei RJ Platinum-R Helmet
I tried moving to something less expensive, but couldn't find anything that fit as well, was as comfortable, and (of course) nothing at a lower price carries the Snell rating. My head is more oval, and XL fit great here when it didn't with others. I only wish it could be matched with a short shield. You can with an aftermarket shield, but you can't use the Shoei visor as well because its snaps aren't adjustable. An aftermarket visor solves that. Both inexcpensive.

Best 3/4 I've worn. Exceptional comfort - love the snap-in liner and pads. You won't be disappointed.

Quality product with nice features for price.
The primary reason for selecting this helmet was the high safety rating for an open face helmet. I have been riding in cool weather (Wisconsin in Nov.) with vents open, thought I would really feel cold air but do not, guess I'll have to assume they help in warm weather. Fits well and is light, forget I have it on while riding.

This is a really comfortable helmet very light good airflow (but it is an open face helmet) the only thing I can kick on it looks big and goofy when you put it on Shoei could have made the shell smaller. But for the price and comfort and the fact it's snell rated I can live with it. B

Extremely Well Engineered
Just bought this a month ago after using a couple of less expensive alternatives. Gotta say....fit, feel, sound softening and ventilation .....all top notch.
I must have a pretty standard head shape because the fit for me is perfect.
I wear a size medium which fits really well.....snug but not too tight.
The only problem that I have is genetic....you have to get it over your ears which in my case is no little chore :)
Love the helmet.

A great simple helmet.
For a basic helmet, this lid goes a long way toward doing it all.
The fit is good for anyone with a roundish to med. oval shape head. My head is opposite of long oval shape, I can always get a finger up between forehead and front liner on Shoei full face helmets, and others that are complementary to long oval heads. Not the case with RJ, it fits me well on all sides.
I use foam ear plugs at all times and this lid is quiet on a naked bike, Moto Guzzi California custom, 1400.
This is my go to hot weather helmet. It doesn't lift at speed. It is very comfortable and I recommend it.

Best helmet I have had yet. Fits like a glove and is very comfortable. Air flow is good, after riding my head is usually wet but with this one it stays dry. RECOMMENDED
