Best Helmet I've Ever Owned
First of all, I purchased this helmet on a Wednesday night, it shipped Thursday and I received it Saturday...fast shipping!

My first ride with it was the next day, we did about 250 miles and I never felt better. Keep in mind, I was wearing a half shell and 2 reasons I was wanting a 3/4 was for ventilation and to help cut wind noise in my ears. I got exactly that! The helmet was a little bigger than I was used to, but doesn't look weird or anything...besides, I don't care too much what I look like, I'm in it for the ride.

Immediately after taking off, I noticed the air flow. What a difference that made. I used to be in a hurry to get my old helmet off when I got home because I would sweat so much in it. But this one is no problem. I'll leave it on while pumping gas and don't feel any different than if I weren't wearing a helmet...and I live in El Paso and the heat has been over a 100 degrees! So that should say something. I get home now and when I take my helmet off, my head is dry.

Once I got on the highway, the noise control was much better than my half shell. I didn't have all of that wind rushing in my ears and I actually hear the music from my speakers a lot better.

I was a little nervous purchasing a helmet online that I didn't have a chance to try on, but with Revzilla's exchange/return policy and exceptional customer service, I wasn't worried. Fortunately, based on the sizing chart, my head measured out to be right in the medium size so that's what I ordered, fit perfectly. The helmet is snug on my head without causing any hotspots or pain. Plus, riding on the highway, my head doesn't bobble around like it did with my half shell, so the aerodynamics on this helmet are top notch.

I would definitely recommend this helmet to anybody!

Super Comfortable and Flows a ton of air!
I stopped in the Revzilla Philadelphia showroom looking for a new 3/4 open face helmet to match my new 2014 Mysterious Red Street Glide Special. After trying a Bell, a Biltwell and a couple others, I could tell that while they looked great, they weren't for me because I was getting hot spots on my forehead after a could minutes of wear. Their helmet guru, Steve, came over and asked if he could assist me. He took one look at my head and knew the Shoe RJ Platinum R would fit my head shape and that I was a size Medium. He brought it out in what they call their "wine" color. Perfect fit, very comfortable and it matches my bike almost exactly. I ordered it a couple weeks later and when I wore it on my first ride, I was astonished at how well it flows air. It was a 90 degree day and my head was dry when I got to work after my 40 minute commute. The helmet is exceptionally comfortable and it is quieter than my previous 3/4 helmet (an Ed Hardy Captain America 3/4 helmet). I noticed I could turn the volume down an average of about 3-5 notches and still hear it just as well, if not better than before. Absolutely love this helmet and highly recommend it. For size comparison, I also have a Bell RS1, Bell Mag9 Sena, an Outlaw USMC Half Helmet, a Schuberth C3 flip face helmet and they are all size Medium, so the Shoei fits true to size.

Excellent Balance between Retro Style and Contemporary Features
I was on the market for a Snell approved ¾ helmet because my full face helmet was too hot for summer riding. Most, if not all the alternatives I examined triggered nostalgic feelings. This was nice but they also appeared to be almost identical to what I was wearing in the 70’s. As their Snell approval indicates, they may be safer; but something was still missing for me.

First of all, I was looking for ventilation, even if an open face helmet was in question. After all, ventilation channels can always be switched off but they are useful on hot weaher and/or at slower speeds. Secondly, I was seeking out a more beautiful helmet than the 70’s offerings, without compromising my nostalgic feelings towards the era.

The Shoei RJ Platinum R was just what I was looking for: Snell approved, ventilated and very beautiful IMO. Since I was confident that Shoei would not offer a low quality helmet and since quality comes at a price, I pulled the trigger. I am now so happy that I did.

The fit can be either true to size or maybe very slightly large. I am not certain because unlike full face helmets, the cheeks flex a bit. This flex may be misleading me towards wondering if it is slightly large. I purchased an XL for my 62 cm (24.40 inches) head and it fits like a glove. Since my same size Arai Quantum ST full face helmet fits a bit tighter, I may be thinking that the Shoei RJ Platinum R is a bit on the large side. However, once it is on my head, it nicely presses my cheeks and it does not move laterally or vertically, even if I try to move it with my hands.

It feels quite light and it is extremely comfortable. The inner materials are velvety with a soft tactile feel which is not skiddy. In other words; perfect. The ventilation is a big bonus for me. I can feel a light breeze on the top of my head if I desire so. I do desire so most of the time in hot weather. I did shut the ventilation off a few times during night riding. Please note that I wore it only above 15?C (59?F) so far, behind the tall windshield of my Harley Road King. I cannot comment on cold weather comfort but I wouldn’t think it would be any different than other ¾ helmets.

Again behind the windshield, it is not as noisy as I expected. In fact, it is less noisy than my Arai Quantum ST with the windshield fully open. This is not a fair comparison as the fully open windshield of a full face helmet swishes in the wind but I wanted to give an idea on the noise level. Needless to say, my full face helmet is significantly less noisy when its windshield is closed. The visor of the Shoei RJ Platinum R does not seem to swish, nor does it make my head wobble. On the other hand, it does not help much when facing the sun, either.

My regular sunglasses stay securely put in it even if I rotate my head at speed. It is easy to put sunglasses on and off when wearing the helmet, thanks to the purpose built conduits. Nevertheless, I ordered goggles with polycarbonate lenses as regular sunglasses would injure my eye if a solid object hits at speed. As far as I know, there is no bubble shield for this helmet. I don’t know if universal ones or the ones from other manufacturers would fit or not. So, beware if this is your intention.

After about a total of 1500 km (930 miles) with this helmet in nice weather, I decided to expand the temperature range I had in mind for using it. I ordered a neoprene half face mask and a neck collar and I already have a balaclava. I am so comfortable with it that I reckon my full face helmet will be on call only in really cold weather.

All in all, I can recommend this helmet to anyone who is looking for an open face helmet in this price range.

Product description & fit for medium was right on.
Very nice helmet,with good fit for me in medium,sizing chart was right on.I find it best to take my glasses off when putting the helmet on as it will tend to drag my bows off my ear,but once on there is no problem.

I really like this helmet!! Feels very good with glasses (no pinched ears). Vent system works great. My HD communication system fit in ear area very well. Feels much safer than the 1/2 helmet I was wearing. Great product.

Excellent Open-Face Helmet
Ordered this helmet to enjoy with my custom cruiser on the backroads. My interest was in the review of how comfortable it was and the exceptional airflow for those hot summer days. I was not disappointed.

This helmet is incredibly comfortable, and I have wore some very uncomfortable ones. The cheek protection provides added wind - and thereby noise - protection. Very comfortable to put on and take off - no cheek burns. Fits like a dream.

I have a bit of a long, oval head shape, so I was worried about the fit - I had a hard time finding a helmet brand that focused on this head shape. Although this is a bit noticeable on the sides, the helmet stays put and never bothers me with a loose fit - and without pressing my head at forehead and back until I have a headache. The padding is perfect and keeps the helmet stationery on my head.

The noise dampening is pretty good, but I am comparing it to my time in a helmet that did not cover my ears at all. I can hear all I need to hear, and the rest just sounds like background airplane noise. Got used to it quickly, as it really does not bother me.

They styling is superb and I get plenty of complements on the looks with my cruiser. The open face is not for everyone, but I don't hit the highways, just the backroads. 50mph (80kph) is my typical limit and the open face works fine...outside of a rain storm.

Love this helmet in every way!

Shoei RJ Platinum-R delivers both comfort and style
I'm pleased with my selection of this Shoei RJ Platinum helmet for a few reasons. Number one is the overall comfort of the product as well as the fit and finish. I prefer a 3/4 helmet for the level of protection it provides. The volume of air flow through the top of helmet is adequate to maintain a cool head in warm weather. The D ring chin strap design.is easy to secure and release. Overall the product is superb and would recommend it to others on those long cruising rides.

All that it claims...
I got this helmet to have a "top of the line" make to ride with on my cruiser... I'm very pleased. The helmet looks awesome and is very comfortable. I have fairly loud pipes on my ride and the helmet keeps the sound well below annoying. Airflow is good and doesn't make a lot of difference in the noise factor when open. Overall, this helmet is everything I was expecting from my first Shoei...it is a "top of the line" helmet. I recommend this product at the highest level available. Revzilla's response to my order was fast (a couple days from order on line to receipt). I will continue to use Revzilla for all my motorcycling accessories.

I wanted an open-face helmet without a face shield. Shoei's reputation, along with the looks of this helmet and what I learned of it through your video, convinced me to give it a try. (Since I won't have a face shield I plan to wear glasses for eye protection. The channels for eyeglass frames were therefore attractive to me.)

What are the snaps on the side of the helmet for?
I've seen those snaps on multiple open face helmets, but none of them mention what the snap is for.
Would it be for some type of goggles? If so, can someone recommend some goggles that work with that snap-style attachments?

Thanks!
A shopper on Jun 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The snap is for a snap on face shield that covers the whole face. The face shield uses all the snaps on the helmet.
Besides the white or black air vent what's the difference between white and crystal white? Hard to tell with laptop or ipad.
A shopper on Dec 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have the Crystal White. Has a bit of flake to it and is a bit "creamier" in color. Hope this helps :-). Great basic 3/4.
I have a Shoei Qwest helmet - in Large, which fits me perfectly (oval-ish head). I'm looking for an open face helmet for the summer. Would the Shoei RJ Platinum fit similarly. In other words, should I order the large size?

thanks
Steven F on Jul 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have the Neotec and the RJ Platinum-R in large. They seem to fit the same and I really like both helmets. If you get the RJ helmet too big it will seem to lift when you ride. I think that you will be good with the large and I'm sure that you'll love the helmet.
Good luck
Jimmy
will the RJ platinum fit mx goggles and do any models you carry that would fit better then others?

thanks
A shopper on Sep 24, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Should fit!
I am looking for an open face helmet that is comfortable and does not give me a major sore spot in the top center of my forehead. I have a Harley Davidson open face now that just kills me after an hour in the saddle. My buddy has the same helmet and same problem, so I know its not me. I looked at the video for the Shoei RJ Platinum and the interior padding looks very similar to the HD helmet I have. Can someone advise if this is a problem or comment on a comfortable open face?
Larry
A shopper on Jul 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: A couple of things about this helmet, one is the size seems to run alittle big,normally I wear a medium helmet and this Shoei is lose on my head,should have ordered a small. My hat size is 71/8. Secondly, it fits a round head better than an oval shape. My stepson hears it and it makes a sore spot in the center of his forehead. His head shape is more oval than mine.Other than the size I do like the helmet, sturdy visor and quality materials. Hope this helps.
Does the Shoei Plantinum-R open face helmet have built-in space in the ear area for a communications system?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The ear section is recessed and has room for most speakers. Will need to see if your paticular equipment will fit. I used to use a communicator with speakers but now I use molded ear plugs. On my fourth generation of that model helmet.
How is the fit around the cheeks? I have another brand modular and the cheek shape makes my jaw ache after a while. I want the protection but not have the cheek pads so tight......
A shopper on Apr 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Shoei RJ Platinum Helmet fits nicely around your cheeks ... snug but not tight. A first, the cheek pads may seem tight but give it a little time for break-in and you will have a nice comfortable fit for many years. I own two Shoei Helmets and this one is my favorite because of the fit and weight. Hope this helps.
Shoei RJ Platinum-R Helmet.................Need to know few things about this helmet, I have had problems finding the right size for helmets, it's always been an issue for me, I wear a large size on full face n never had issues with them, but recently I ordered large open face of Bell Rogue helmet and it was tight and very uncomfortable, firstly because of the less padding and secondly it didn't fit completely without hurting my top part of my head if I fully pulled it down, btw I am completely bald, I shave my head, so got no extra cushion from my hair hehe :P.... so I don't know if large will fit me? And about the padding, is there more padding than other open face helmets? The problem is as I don't live in U.S, it will be hard for me to return it...As I will ship it to my cousin's place in Virginia and he will be coming here. and the helmet will reach me 10 or 11 of Feb. So Can you please help me out

BEST ANSWER: I boyght a large and fit right. I also wear large Arai full face helmets. I assume the large Shoi will fit you fine. I prefer the comfort aspect of Arai's shape over the Shoei, but they don't really make a nice open face.
I also spend 12 hours a day in a Shoei RJ. I do get a pressure mark on my forehead but it doesn't hurt. It's not something I get with any Arai helmets.
I hope this helps you. Good luck.
Hi
I am looking for an open face. I ride with glasses only and am looking for a helmet with two things in mind, quiet and comfort under $200 what do you recommend?

BEST ANSWER: I purchased the Shoei RJ Platinum helmet for knocking around the village in. Helmets are required but I didn't want to squish a full-face on for running to the coffee shop or market. This Shoei fit the requirements perfectly. I wear eye or sun glasses with it (also required by law) and it works well. It's not as quiet as a full face (but not at all noisy); it is comfy, wearable for long rides. It feels good on because it hugs my face a little, but not restrictive. The only downside in my opinion is that it is meaty, with lots of protection, a lot of helmet, and it has a bulby top. I just think that's because it is Snell as well as DOT, giving more cushion.
Hi,
Have query about size. Have tried the Large ( I have 2 Lge full face Shoei's) but the fit feels a bit looser than the full face and I'm concerned about whether I need to go to a Medium for when the helmet 'beds' in? Any advice as to how the helmet wears size wise when used a bit?
Cheers

BEST ANSWER: I have the RJ Platinum-R and the Neotech in large. The fit feels very similar. You could always replace the cheek pads with the thicker ones as the original ones wear. My original RJ helmet was an XL and it would seem to lift slightly at highway speed so I replaced it with the Large. I hope that this helps and you'll love that helmet.
