What's this?

Shoei RF-1200 Brigand 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 RF-1200 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.

Quietness

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 Shoei RF-1200 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.

Ventilation

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.

Features:

  • Four shell sizes
  • Dual density EPS liner
  • Superior ventilation
  • 3D Max-Dry System II Liner
  • E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) CWR-1 Shield System
  • Neatly secure chin strap
  • Includes Pinlock pins and lens insert
  • Includes breath guard and chin curtain
  • Snell M2015 and DOT Certified

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

SAVED MY LIFE
Guys I wanna tell you something for those fathers boyfriends husbands Wives mothers ect. DO NOT BUY A DIFFERENT HELMET. I crashed and this thing saved my life.

I was riding down the roadon my cbr 600rr and me and my friend decided to race ( I know young stupid kid on bike ect I get it now) We hit about 120 when I hit gravel. I went down hard having my helmet nail the ground. As I skidded along the surface with my helmet being chipped away at at 120mph. I saw a sign come into view, I hit it hard. This helmet got me through without even a concussion let alone a destroyed face. Please get this helmet (or better) and be safe for your families/loved ones.

Sincerely - The guy who can still marry his girlfriend.

Insane looking helmet
I went with the Shoei RF-1200 Brigand Helmet in typical male fashion, form over function. This thing redefines sexy. As sick as it looks on the internet, it looks even sicker in person. It's very light, I'd compare it to my brother's carbon FS-15 helmet. I haven't worn it for a ride yet so i cannot comment on wind noise, buffeting, etc. I don't really care about the noise thing as i have a pipe on my bike and ride 95% of the time with my visor up anyhow. It's tight...especially the cheek pads, it's made snacking at home nearly impossible while watching tv. If you can manage to get a chip into your mouth, it's definitely mixing with some blood when you chew since a good portion of your cheek will be in the line of fire when you chew. I wouldn't worry if you have the included chin curtain installed however, it can handle quite a bit of crumbs and any leaking saliva or blood. I'm confident it's not going to move around at excessive speed without tearing my head off, it's tight... The visibility out of the helmet is great too, can see the entire TV without pivoting. I can't wait for my wife to see the charge on the CC statement for this overpriced head bling, should be an epic, menopausal, hormonally enfused rampage...hence wearing it around the house...gotta be ready for anything....

This is the best helmet I've ever owned
ROI: No complaints since I got it on sale, so I'd say it's a very good ROI.

STYLE: Love it! The Brigand design looks great and when I had a chance to stop in the few days I've had it, I've gotten a few compliments.

COMFORT: When I initially put it on, I thought, "man, this is TIGHT!", but after riding around for a few days, the perceived snugness I felt is barely noticeable.

PROTECTION & DURABILITY: Can't speak to it yet because I like to keep the rubber on the road!

AIR FLOW: I must have had just bad helmets in the past, because this is the first helmet where I actually feel air moving across the top of my head. It's fantastic! It was 80F (26.6C) when I went to work today, and my face wasn't melting off when I arrived.

FEATURES: I can actually use my BT headset without it feeling like the speakers are digging out new patterns into my ears thanks to the speaker cut-outs. And as far as noise goes, this is a really quiet helmet, comparatively-speaking, to the ones I've owned in the past. Now I commute with ear plugs in and music playing; I can still definitively hear cars and big rigs around me at highway+ speeds.

Would definitely recommend this helmet!

Great Product.
Its not as quiet as I wanted it to be so I would say its average on the noise level. Everything else is perfect. All I need now is a transition visor.

Great helmet
I looked for two weeks trying to find the right helmet. It is tough deciding on a helmet over the net. I decided on this one. I am really happy with my choice. Great fit. Great features. And it looks great.

I maybe like my helmet more than my bike
I love this Helmet. mainly for the graphics and the air flow. I have been riding for 5 years now and I finally found a helmet I like. Also this is my first pinlock and i love that it came with it. I rode a lot this summer with temperatures reaching up around 98 and although nothing much would keep me from sweating in my helmet less riding without one. It definitely performed better than my HJC and Bell . I would absolutely recommend the RF-1200

excellent quality
The Shoei RF-1200 is an amazing helmet. I wasn't sure if it would be worth it to spend $500+ on a helmet; I am certainly glad that I did. This helmet is light weight and has a good amount of air flow without being extremely noisy. The graphic of the Brigand is stunning to look at, and looked even better with the dark smoke face shield on it. With the pin-lock shield in place, there is absolutely no fogging. After all is said and done, this helmet is of excellent quality...I am certainly glad that I took the chance and bought this helmet.

I love Shoei
Coming from an year old RF-1000, this is a great successor. I expected nothing less from this manufacturer. Although, have ONLY tried my brother's Bell helmet for the cheaper alternatives, I will never stray away from a Shoei. The RF-1200 is definitely quieter than my older 1000, but that may be because the padding isn't as tight anymore (gigiddy). Airflow is great if not better. I'm waiting for it to get colder to test out the pinlock system. The older RF-1000 was very good at defogging when moving and I suspect this new helmet will do the same since I can feel the airflow from having the lower front very open as opposed to being closed.

I absolutely love this helmet
You can finally get the safety and functionality of a SHOEI with the a more cryptic darker style. I wear this helmet full-time while riding my harley and it's nice to have options more then a solid color. I highly recommend it to anyone no matter what they ride.

Fred R on May 18, 2015
Had an RF-900 orbit and loved it ... picked this shoei R F - 1200 for performance, price point, and looks. It's a little pricey, my old r f - 900 was about $100 less, but I had bought that in 1999, was a great lid, but I expect more from this one and every dollar spent to protect my cranium is a dollar well spent.

can I where prescription glasses with this helmet?
Julius G on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I wore glasses regularly under my SHOEI RF-1200 Brigand in the 2015 season. No issues. But my glasses are half frame and thin, and my helmet is size XS. The glasses' frame never touched the sides or face shield. However if I recall correctly, it was a slightly tight fit between the padding and ears. Again, that part of my glasses are basically wire thin. On thicker framed glasses or wider ear pieces it may be slightly uncomfortable in the beginning, but I'd expect that the padding would wear in over time. My advice would be to try it out. Wear it at home with glasses for about 30 minutes and see what you think. Revzilla is a great company to work with and you would be able to return it if doesn't work out. I had to do this with an AGV helmet before getting my RF-1200. Hope this helps. The RF-1200 has been a great helmet for me. I'd recommend to anyone who has the proper head shape for it.

What do you use to clean the matte finish of the helmet? Have you noticed any pitting or little dents in the helmet? I've always owned a glossy finished helmet that is pretty easy to clean and keep looking new especially with the all in one cleaners that can be used both on a helmet and bike for easy cleaning. I'd really appreciate any info you guys could pass on.
A shopper on Mar 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use a water based wash and polish called bullet polish. It's awesome on every surface and great with matte finishes. Anything with out polymer in it should be fine on the surface. And no pitting ... So far
