What's this?

Shoei RF-1200 Ruts 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.

Great helmet
Very light, I'm not even realizing it is on my head sometimes :)
Fortunately, I've never crashed, so can't tell about protection... But Snell certified keeps me calm.

Great helmet, very round
Amazing helmet have better field of vision then my oakley's. Had tight fit the first few times i put it on, but after breaking in the pads a bit fits perfectly. Love the artwork its minimalist with enough detail to make ya stare. If my only con for it is its lack of sharpness is all, im fine. The weight feels light to me friend said it weighed a ton but its not his helmet so who cares. The price is high but between the shoie rf 1100 the icon variant. The guy i spoke to at revzilla recommended shoie is best quality and th rf1200 is the top one there so sold was just up to deciding graphic.

Amazing Helmet
Extremely light and solid helmet. Fits like a glove and quite comfortable. Vision is wide and it the helmet moves with your head with zero discomfort. Various vents for optimal air flow without sacrificing amazing noise reduction; active highway rider. Highly recommend this helmet, worth the money!

I was hoping for more
I just received my helmet today and took off for a ride. I currently have an HJC CL-17 and I like that helmet but I was looking for a helmet that can adapt a transitional shield so I don't have to wear my sunglasses. Anyway since all I have is the CL-17 to compare it to I will say that this RF-1200 feels a little bigger than the large HJC I currently ride it. Personally, I don't know how people ride with headphones in as all of these helmets fit too snug around my ears when sliding it on and always crush my ears or rip out my headphones all together. They say this helmet only weighs 3.5 ounces compared to the CL-17's 3.9 ounces. I will tell you the scales are off on one of these helmets. This RF-1200 which I will have to weigh when I get home feels so LIGHT and so COMFORTABLE that I could see me riding in this all day and night. I might sleep with it. I am kidding. I would say the only down fall I have experienced thus far is the lack of air when sitting still. I got the white version and so once summer rolls back around in Sierra VIsta, AZ, I will have to give another update. I ride a 2013 Triumph Street Triple R and a huge problem I have with my CL-17 is that going 85-90mph with the southern Arizona winds kicking my ass all over the road my head would bobble side to side or back and forth. Thus far, I have yet to experience that with this RF-1200. My bike is white and black with a little red and so I got this white RUT version paint scheme and I was a little nervous that it was going to look as shiny as it did in the video but it is a sexy matte white.

John R on Mar 25, 2017
Been with shoei for years now. Has always been a great helmet so when it came time for a upgrade it was a no brainer after reading the reviews and watching a couple videos I was convinced. Also got the transitions shield to go with it. Shoei makes a well built brain shield.
brandon l on Mar 18, 2017
I did a lot of research through videos and comments. I wanted a top of the line helmet that I know will protect me and be comfortable. Based on research this was a helmet that can be worn in the upright cruiser position. Plus I like this graphic and think it will match my bike well.
