Shoei RJ Platinum-R Helmet
Best helmet I ever owned!
This helmet was everything you guys said it would be in your video demonstration. The helmet arrived quickly and was not only beautifully packaged, but well packaged. My ride got even better with this great helmet.

Moved from Full to Open faced
wanted an open face but love the feel/fit of my, now stolen, Shoei full face and this is a great match. I don't trust bucket hats on an LA freeway, but now my vision is wider and air flow better and all the confidence of a well made helmet. I like the look of the visor and don't mind the lack of moving parts like face shields and visors. Best part is not taking glasses off to put on or off.

Helmet looks like a mushroom, hurts my jaw
I would the shell is to big in this day and age, Right of fthe bat my riding buddies said I looked like a goldwing rider :(
I rode 4 hours using this helmet came home and my left jaw bone was swollen up from the pressure the cheek pad put on my jaws.Cheek pads way to hard, should have used memory foam. It's all I can do to put the helmet over the top of my head, the bottom is too small but the crown fits perfect. I bent my subscription sunshades pulling the helmet over my ears, Have to place it on my head then put my glasses on.
I did like the air vents in the top of the helmet.
This helmet was my second choice, the Bell I wanted was out of stock.

This product is great for the price. Awesome helmet.
Shoei helmets are the best. This product is exactly what I was looking for. I ride a Harley Davidson Street Glide. Light weight, adjustable, comfortable. Right air flow. Highly recommended.

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!

Great quality and value.
Super comfortable fit on my large slightly oblong head. Liner feels very premium, soft yet durable. Air flow is great and really felt a difference when I opened up the back exhaust vents on 90 degree plus days. Vision is great with a wide perspective. Minor gripe is how tall it sits on you hear and not a low profile as my Bell C -500 which super low profile, but again just an astetics call. The helmet does a great job of keeping out a good amount of road noise while still allowing to here what going on around you and my stereo. Feels like a full face with the amount of coverage, yet still plenty of open face feel. Would definitely buy another one.
