What's this?

Shoei RF-1200 Indy Marquez 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 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 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 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.

My First Premium Helmet
This is my first premium helmet, and if I had known how much better this was than the inexpensive helmets I had been using I would have bought one years ago.

It has made riding more enjoyable.

Great Helmet and great price!
This helmet was on sale and I couldn't believe it! RF-1200 Shoei! Fits nice and snug, it's lite and the style/color is really nice. Wide vision is a must on a sport bike and this is perfect. I've been riding sport bikes for 18 years now and Shoei is my favorite helmet, most bang for the buck!

Now I know the difference.
Between a $200 helmet and a $500 helmet. I purchased a sena 20s and installed it on my Scorpion helmet which I loved until I realized it was the reason I couldn't hear the sena at all. A friend of mine had the RF1200 and the same sena and said his was loud, so I bought one and he was right. I can now hear the sena perfectly as well as other things outside the helmet which is hard to explain but it works for me.

I did the review on my iPad so I couldn't adjust the sliding review bars but the helmet is awesome. Very quiet and very comfortable. I wore a large in my scorpion but I'm a medium in Shoei.

Thanks Revzilla!!

Great fit and design
A comfy, stylish helmet which I am confident will protect me if I need it.

The helmet fits snugly but does not squeeze the head or the cheeks at all. Airflow is good, with all the vents open you can really feel a steady rush of cool air at 50+ MPH.

The pinlock visor system works really well, and coupled with the visor rapid release system, changing a visor is done in well under a minute after some practice.

The only thing I'd point out is that the paint is easily scratched, so be careful carrying the helmet and don't bump your head!

Another quality helmet from Shoei
Upgraded from my RF 1100 that I had for about 5 years. Enormous upgrade from the RF 1100. A lot lighter and much more aerodynamic. Also a lot quieter. Now I can talk to myself, and hear myself clearly, while riding 80 MPH. My other RF I had to wear ear plugs but this one is actually quiet enough where I don't really need them. Talking aerodynamics, I can hardly feel the wind at 80 on my naked GSXS1000. Huge improvement over the RF1100. It's an expensive helmet, but then being comfortable is very important on long road trips. An inexpensive helmet, that's neither aerodynamic or light, can almost convince someone to give up riding. Smooth, light, comfortable, safe.......that goes a long way to making motorcycle riding enjoyable. So, don't sell yourself short, don't skimp on a helmet. I'm telling you that the helmet is one of the most important comfort factors to riding and can make or break any ride.

Just a great helmet from Shoei
As already known, the RF-1200 is one of the best street helmets available on the market. I had been looking at buying one for a while, and when I saw that Shoei had upgraded the Snell rating to the M2015 standard, I decided jump on it and buy the RF-1200 with the Indy Marquez graphic. Compared to my old, entry-level helmet, this has been a night-and-day experience.

The first thing that really surprised me was the weight. It is extremely light. Even just picking it up with my hands I was shocked by how little it weighed, and that translated to how light it felt on my head as well. Longer rides don't tire out my neck as easily, and combined with the superior aerodynamics of this helmet vs my old helmet, quick head movements (such as for lane checking# are easier on my head and neck, and gusts of wind don't catch and lift the helmet as easily.

The RF-1200 has a huge amount of airflow options, as well. On colder days I have to shut some of the top vents because I can feel my scalp starting to get a bit chilly, and even warmer days don't cause me to get sweaty as long as I can keep rolling and have some airflow to the helmet.

Considering the massive amount of airflow this helmet offers, I was extremely surprised to see how quiet it is at speed. The included chin curtain really helps to quiet down any wind noise. Sometimes, under the right conditions with the top vents open, I can hear some buzzing/humming from the top of the helmet, but closing the vents causes the sound to go away.

Finally, for the comfort and fit of the helmet - I had to step up a size from my old helmet. My old helmet was a Medium, and I had to step up to a Large RF-1200. I didn't experiment with different pad thicknesses as the stock pads on the Large fit me just fine. The helmet is very comfortable, thanks in part to its light weight, and I haven't had any issues with hotspots or pain anywhere. The only issue I've had with fit is the provided speaker pockets are just slightly too small for my Sena SMH10R headset speakers, so I had to use the Velcro spacer pads included with the Sena headset in order to make the speakers fit in the pockets. This pushes the speakers out closer to your ears, and I can get some discomfort in my ears if the helmet isn't positioned just right. It's not really the helmet's fault, but it's something I thought should be mentioned in case you want to use a Sena headset with the RF-1200.

All in all, this helmet has been a great investment and worth every penny. The graphic is extremely eye catching #which hopefully helps with visibility!) and I have gotten many compliments on it. Overall, I would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone.

Aerodynamic Helmet
This helmet is comfortable and quiet but the best thing about it is the way it slips through the air at speed. My last helmet had the aerodynamic qualities of a brick. The area I live in is often windy and this helmet makes my ride more comfortable and stable even in crosswinds. I definitely recommend it.
