What's this?

Shoei RF-1200 Terminus 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 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. 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.


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.


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.


  • Four shell sizes

Looking for a Good Shoei RF1200 Helmet. This one fits the bill. The finish and quality are excellent!

I already have a Shoei and I like it and couldn't pass up the great deal!
Robert S on Jan 30, 2017
My last helmet was an RF-700. Form, fit and function was awesome. I loved it. I used it for over 10 years & was hard to get rid of... But someone bought it at a flea market & I am looking for to the new technology Shoei for life! Ride on !!
Chip U on Dec 15, 2016
my first helmet, and i love it. probably gonna stick with shoei forever
brandon a on Oct 18, 2016
Chose the black version. Previously used the RF-1000 and enjoyed it quite a bit. Needed a replacement so decided to upgrade to the RF-1200. Went with the Gold visor to match the Black/Gold Helmet color. Looks great. Feels great. Has much wider view angle than the RF-1000 did. More vents - great air flow. Noise levels still kept to a minimum.

look and saw good reviews
David Y on May 23, 2016
I have a Shoei X-11 and it is over 8 years old so it was past time to upgrade. Tried the helmet on and it fit my head better than my X-11. Now that I have ridden in the RF-1200 I love it (though the ventilation is not as good as the X-11) but well worth the trade off
Lisa M on May 19, 2016
Fresh graphic, great shape. Very light with lots of vents. The opening for the head is rigid in the back compared to some other helmets I've had but once it's on it's very comfortable.

I was going to get air brush graphic helmet but decided to wait another year. I have a modular Shoei and it is perfect for me. I wanted a full face now and this has the graphic I like and I hope the visibility to get notice by automobile drivers--as a motorcycle rider I want to do whatever it takes to prevent an accident so I hope this and other items will do just that.
LA RUE C on Apr 30, 2016
great looking helmet for sport riding
Steve T on Apr 21, 2016
Used up my RF1000, replaced it with a RF1100 but it has a Production Date of 070227 so the obvious next step is the RF1200. Your video also reaffirmed the positive aspects that I have experienced wearing a SHOEI. Fit, Form, and Function! Add to that, the fact that it looks good

new season
timothy p on Mar 23, 2016
Love my RF1200. Totaled my bike, my RF protected my head but because of the crash I needed a new one. RF1200 is the best helmet I have owned so I just got a little flare this time.
Advgrrl on Jan 20, 2016
the helmet best fit my head shape and has the best safety rating
jesus r on Dec 21, 2015
The looks and comfort. Excellent helmet! I would definitely recommend it.
Paul F on Dec 18, 2015
One of the nicer looking designs for the RF-1200.
Jon E on Nov 12, 2015
heard alot of really great reviews and needed something with great airflow along with comfort. do it once and do it right and nothing beats a shoei helmet
Ian M on Jul 13, 2015
the brand name "shoe" says it all. i ride a harley in hot and humid h-town but i still want good protection for my noggin.
Jehu S on Apr 4, 2015
I picked this helmet because of the quality of the Shoei name, because I was pleased with the previous model RF-1100, and because I like the Terminus art work.
KEVIN H on Feb 21, 2015
Replacement for my GT Air.

Minh D on Feb 3, 2017
Does the 2016 iterations (latest graphics models e.g. Intense) have a different pocket size for speakers (e.g. Sena 10/20S) than older versions of RF1200 (e.g. Terminus)? Any other updates?
A C on Oct 27, 2016
I'm just curious about Wind Noise in this helmet? my current bell vortex is quite loud and I'm looking for a more quite piece.
Chase S on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi there,

I can tel you that this is a pretty quiet helmet. I believe you will be thrilled to move into this one coming from your Bell. The Rf 1200 is greatly improved over its last generation and has a better neck roll, chin guard, and all around dampening than any other helmet I've been in. I ride a loud Ducati Panigale and this Helmet is more than comfortable on 4 hour rides through the twisties. Hope this helps.
Where can I find different sized head pads? Thanks!
A C on Aug 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can order the various size interior padding from Shoei's US website.

Hope this helps.

Do the RF1200 models have speaker pockets in them?
A shopper on Nov 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes they do however if you have the Sena smh10 the speakers are a bit bigger than the pocket which has sort of a taper to it. However once you get the cheek pads in the speakers stay in place.

What size cheek pads come with a medium Shoei RF-1200 Terminus Helmet ?
