What's this?

Shoei RF-1200 Parameter Helmet

The pinnacle of perfection, the Shoei RF-1200 Helmet represents the culmination of 56 years of helmet heritage and was designed from its inception to be an industry leader in comfort, performance and protection. The wind tunnel-tested shell is optimized to provide a compact and aerodynamic shape, reducing wind-noise, buffeting and weight. Shoei 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 M2015 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.

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 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 Shoei Helmet: RF1200 Parameter Black/white version.
definitelyJust got this helmet today. This is my first Shoei brand helmet. I upgraded from a Icon Airframe Pro Construct. I noticed the differences immediately. overall the Shoei fit better, was more comfortable to wear, and had better quality workmanship than the Icon.

Fit seemed to be just right. not too snug but not loose just the right amount of check pressure and almost no discomfort on my ears (which the icon was horrible for). I like that fact that you can adjust the position of the check pads to more forward, rearward, up, down etc. as well as having the option to get another pad kit.

Vents worked well. no issues with airflow at street or highway speeds. May have trouble determining if the forehead vent is open or not while wearing it unless your moving (same with the rear vents). Air flow was good. I wasn't dripping with sweat when I got home and took off the helmet. Noise was no issue. couldn't hear much over the Yohsi exhaust anyways.

Style wise black and white seem to go well with just about anything. the graphic went well with my black icon contra jacket and black carbon alpine star gloves. And I love the digital camo scheme as well.

Definitely like that fact that Shoei features transition lens for their visors. I will be upgrading to that in the near future which will save on money of having light smoke and dark smoke lens and time/effort changing them out. wont have to worry about carrying a clear lens if I'm out well into the evening. as well as the cut out for blue tooth. Didn't notice any difference in feel from side to side with not blue tooth installed.

All in all this is a great helmet however I haven't spent much time in it yet (only about a one hour ride so far in southern California weather so about mid 70's low 80's).
I would definitely recommend this helmet to those considering getting into the premium level category.

Well done Shoei
I don't know how to pronounce your name, Shoei, but like two strangers on a train, our parts mesh perfectly in harmony and size. I have a strangely shaped oval head with a flat on the back slant -- it's always the first thing someone comments on after I get a haircut. My mum said she never dropped me but I believe the empirical evidence speaks for itself.

Again, perfect fit, even better fit than my Bell S2R for 4-wheel track days and my POC Receptor Backcountry MIPS for snowboard/splitboard days.

I bought the dark smoke visor and have been using it without the pinlock with great success. Only one rain day so far and it performed well. Bringing up the visor a couple clicks is perfect for breathing comfortably at traffic lights while keeping the sun out. The visor seals well out of the box and I haven't had to make any adjustments from OE clearances or applied any oil to the seals yet.

It is easy to pull the helmet down an inch and drink bottled water. I haven't spilled yet. Wouldn't try it with a wide mouth canteen.

The strap is comfortable when ratcheted tight. It doesn't give me the "chokey" feeling.

The helmet goes on and off quite easily.

It is much lighter than my old budget helmet and the weight hasn't stressed my neck. It's a nice shape and isn't noticeable at speed on a naked bike provided you're not sitting back like you're on a lazy boy. My bike (KTM Duke 390) won't do triple digit speeds so I've no idea how it performs up there.

The ventilation I haven't quite figured out. Opening and closing the vents makes no appreciable difference with my giant mop of head that hangs down to my shoulders at this point. I haven't tried removing any padding to adjust ventilation or to accommodate ear speakers.

The design is pretty cool. Could do without the digital camo but that's what the kids like these days. War enall.

Highly recommended.

Just do it... quit spending money on crap helmets
I bought this helmet to replace my inexpensive speed and strength helmet. You've read the reviews, you already know it's a fantastic helmet. Take the $600 price tag and divide that by the 5 year life span of the helmet, and you can ride in one of the safest helmets on the market for a little over $100 a year. It's worth it to me. JUST DO IT TRUST ME

My go to helmet.
This is the second Shoei RF-1200 helmet I've owned. My last helmet was a RF-1200 and I liked it so much, I decided to go with it again as a replacement. It saved me when I went down. I purchased the Parameter graphic in the gray/hi viz colors. It looks amazing. The helmet is very comfortable and lightweight(3 lbs 8 oz). The air flow is excellent with multiple intake and exhaust vents. The is fit is spot on, follow the size chart. With that being said, it makes for being a quiet helmet. Additionally a chin curtain is included, to form a tight seal and reduce noise level. Vision is very good, as the shield provides a wide view. The face shield is easy to remove and attach. I would highly recommend this helmet.

First Helmet
Multiple searches led me to this helmet. It's very tight at first, but after a few rides that will start to break in. Once broken in, it's comfortable as can be. Would advise that you try this on in store as you can truly get a feel for what size suits you the best. It's definitely not a budget, but for those who can afford, why not get the best money can get you without costing the entire motorcycle?

Third Time I have Purchased an RF 1200
I was recently in an accident where my helmet did its job, and with the money from the insurance I could have chosen any helmet but bought another RF1200.

The only complaint I have ever and still have is Shoei could come up with some better graphics.

High quality for high cost
This is the first and only helmet I've owned. I've put 3.3k miles on my bike so far with this helmet, so you can take what you will of my experience based on this information.

Aesthetically, this helmet is awesome. I think the black and white is really the only way to go (obviously this is purely opinion based) considering the color scheme of the digital camo portion. That said, if you like the helmet in picture form, you will love it in person.

The padding in the helmet is very comfortable all around. In the lower jaw/cheek region the padding is very dense, but also very soft and nice against your skin. It wasn't hard to get the helmet on initially, but it did require a firm pull down as you would expect. Four months and 3k miles later it's a lot smoother on and off as the padding has broken in, but I still feel confident in it helping to hold my head in place in the event of a crash. The padding in the upper region of the helmet isn't nearly as dense and allows for a lot more airflow around your head, and I still feel happy with the quality of protection it offers.

When you're wearing the helmet the vents open by sliding the vent switch to your left (for forehead and back of your head). I've read review of people not being able to tell, but if you're at highway speeds and you get one open you'll know... The airflow is blatant when you ride with the vents open and there's a lot of circulation especially in the face area between the chin and forehead vents. I don't notice the airflow to the back of my head really, but I always open it anyway...

At 60 mph and below this helmet is relatively quiet (vents closed and chin skirt on), but it gets kinda noisy at highway speeds. I don't have experience with other helmets, but when I ride with earbuds in I have to set my volume on max. When I listen to my music on the train I usually have it at about 70% max volume and 100% is waaaay too much. So the fact that I max out the volume when I ride, and it doesn't really bother me, makes me feel like the wind noise is pretty frickin intense at speeds over 80mph.

This helmet is also pretty light. I've ridden around for hours with this thing on and my neck doesn't get fatigued and I never really notice it, and that's as a skinny dude with a big ol' head.

Lastly, I really recommend you go somewhere and try on helmets before you buy one. I have what the call the intermediate head shape, and I think my head is kinda big along with that, and this helmet works for me. I don't get that hot spot at my forehead like I got with helmets in my MSF course, and that's why I was willing to spend the money on this helmet.

Awesome helmet from Shoei
Its been a year since I bought the Shoei RF-1200 helmet.
My 1st higher end motorcycle helmet.
Its so much lighter than my HJC that I owned prior. Great design & airflow if vents are open and with Hi-Viz color I feel safer. I think it looks amazing. I'm very pleased with this & will def buy another when this needs replacing in several years.

It's not quit as advertised
All other aspects of this helmet were exceptional. I returned it because one of the most critical factors for me was that it would be quitter than my Shoei, Neotec Modular. I commute 3-4 hours a day on my bike and having music is very important on a day to day basis. The Neotec was pretty good, but I wanted better. Well, once you open the chin vent on the Parameter, you might as well forget hearing any audio. It is quitter with the visor up than with the chin vent open. It really is a shame because otherwise, if loved this helmet.

SHOEI RF 1200
Helmet looks great, light, vision is good but not as good as old open face modular helmet. Its a bit narrow on my face but I have chubby cheeks.....but getting use to it. I do feel safer with this helmet......you only have one skull. This is my first full face helmet. I would buy it again.

Is the Parameter (black/white) matte finish?
Julie E on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it's all gloss coat finish.
If I purchase a helmet in the US can I still legally wear it in Queensland, Australia? Apparently it just needs Australian standards (AS/NZS1698 or AS1698), or the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe standard (ECE 22.05) when riding
A shopper on Jun 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The helmet will say if it's ECE approved. This one is DOT and Snell, but not labeled ECE.
Is the black/white/blue matte or gloss?
Jason R on Apr 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My helmet has the same kind of style as this one without the blue and it is matte. So I'm gonna put my money on the one you're looking at to be matte as well.
Does the RF 1200 come with Bluetooth?
A C on Jun 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No the helmet does not come with Bluetooth, but it is easily added with a SENA headset.
I wear 2xl size for my first helmet and it fits ok and is hard to get in to. but according to the size chart I need a large or XL. I'm afraid that would be too small. What should I do?
