What's this?

Shoei RF-1200 Graffiti 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.

The graphic is insane
Honestly, the pictures and video do not do it justice. The graphic on this helmet is awesome! Beyond that, I mean, it's a Shoei RF-1200. Pretty much a benchmark in street helmets IMHO. Light, comfortable, quiet and very true to the sizing chart. I wear a 7 3/4 hat, base on that I needed the XL, got the XL and fits perfectly. Pinlock visor system works great as well. Oh, and this might be helpful to someone out there so I will add this as well. I wear glasses and/or contacts, and I wear both my prescription glasses, as well as oversized sun glasses (Oakley Offshoots) just fine. No pinching or skewed fitment on my optics, which is always a plus.

Helmet Saved My Life
I recently had an off and hit a large rock right in the temple after cartwheeling 30ft through the woods off of trees. The shield instead of shattering popped off (never to be found). The helmet took the hit really well and combined with a full aplinestars race suite I ended up being able to go to work the next day just a little stiff. If it were not for this helmet I would be dead for sure. If not for the suite I would be in intensive care with lots of broken bones and internal bleeding for sure. Needless to say I am getting another one of these helmets.

Overall great, tight in the cheeks!
First, the service at Revzilla is top notch. If you haven't experienced it, don't hesitate.
The helmet is very good on all counts. And the graphics are really creative and fun. It is my hope that they help me to be more visible.
My only observation is that I first ordered a Large and had to return it for an XL and I followed the size chart guidelines. (kudos to revzilla for an easy return). Even the XL was tight in the cheeks and I had to buy the more slender cheek inserts to make it comfortable. I am 6-1, 195 and have a normal (not fat!) head. So, food for thought.... if your are even near the cutoff go larger!

Perfect upgrade
I was looking to upgrade all my gear. Shoei nailed it with this helmet. The graphics are great. The comfort is great. The noise level is so quiet not to mention the added pockets for the Bluetooth speakers was dead on. This helmet is perfect at its price worth every penny.

Cheap helmets no more, love this helmet!
I used to be a modular helmet person, not spending much on them. But then there it was, like an epiphany while on the can late during the night. The Shoei RF-1200 in Graffiti.

Excellent air flow, I wear glasses, I did have an issue with my glasses fogging when I had the breath guard in place. Removed that and we're good to go.

My first Shoei and I feel as though it was money well spent. Comfortable, kept me warm when riding, lots of vents to pop open if need more air.

The Graffiti pattern is nice, it has colors from every manufacturer so you'll always match. Plus it's white and people tend to see white helmets a bit more than other.

Pin lock lens is a nice touch although in the manual it says it's not DOT approved because of the reduction in light transmission... sure.

I have a big noggin', only HJC helmets used to fit and this felt very comfortable to me. There was a little pressure at first with the new pads and generally new helmet but it wore in a bit and is pinch free.

Why are you still reading? Buy the helmet already!

Comfy helmet with good features
I had to replace my HJC helmet, and I wasn't sure whether to step up to a premium helmet or just get a more reasonable helmet. I decided to go for the premium, and I'm happy I did. I'm still breaking in the padding but so far it fits well per the recommendations from the site.

I can see really well through the visor, although I've notice some fogging here and there. Nothing to make me want to send it back. Plus I haven't added the pin lock inserts yet to prevent that. I always wish I could get more airflow out of the vents near the forehead than I usually get, but they aren't bad.

I LOVE the design and went for it as it's not the standard type of helmet and definitely different from what would have normally gravitated to.

I love how it has grooves already built into the ear cups as I've purchased a Bluetooth speaker add on.

the design seems solid, and I definitely recommend this product.

Excellent helmet !!
This is a great helmet. Styling and size is perfect, just follow the sizing guidelines. I was between sizes and went with the larger. The visor works nicely with good incremental clicks and positive lock. It seals out the rain with no leaking. I will be buying the Transitions visor when it comes back in stock.

Love this helmet
I got this as my first helmet. First impressions were i love design of the helmet. I got an XL and it sits alittle big on my head. But my friends AVG Large fit me to tight. There are many vent holes for air flow and I love them all keeps me cool when riding.
Noise lvl is good when the vents are all closed. I have bluetooth and as long as i have music i dont even hear the noise of the wind.
Vision is good only flaw is full tuck and for a 6'2 guy its hard to see at times.

Looks good and cools my head. hopefully it will protect my head if I go down one day.
Rey B on Jul 22, 2017
Best helmet I've ever had. I live in Arizona, so air flow was very important. That being said, I think the air flow could be better, but it is enough to keep my comfortable while moving in the 115+ degree weather here. It's a Shoei, so it's comfortable, feels good even on long rides, and is my go to helmet every day.

Will the sena 20s fit on this helmet ?
Rick C on May 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it fits great! The helmet already has premolded inserts for sena or any other blue tooth device.
Is the base white pearlized/metallic in any way?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's a white base. There is a little metallic in the graphic but not pearlized.
What does the graffiti design say? Can you distinguish the words?
M J on Jan 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't think that it says anything. I think it's just a great looking pattern. It looks custom. However if you look closely at he colored areas ...the areas that you are thinking that are letters, there are faint mathematical formulas in them...no joke.
How quiet is this helmet?
Manuel L on May 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: With the vents closed, it's amazingly quiet, with the vents open it can get a little loud. It flows a fair bit of air. If you close a few of the vents it gets fairly quiet again while still flowing decent air. Of course no venting will beat opening the visor. It's my first premium helmet, my 5th helmet, my favorite helmet.
