What's this?

Shoei RF-1200 Valkyrie Helmet

The pinnacle of perfection, the RF-1200 represents the culmination of 56 years of helmet heritage and 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 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.

Fit and finish is top notch, but??
I have a love hate relationship with this beautiful helmet. Having come from 2 different X11's this thing is very quiet and feels like half the weight. I'm amazed at how small the outer shell feels. The shield fitment is top notch and very air tight. Fit is very comfortable and doesn't move around at speed. What I'm having a problem with is a strange influx of air that blows around at my face and eyes, which seems to be coming in under my chin. It's real bad above 60, closing all the vents has no effect at all. I'm hopefully going to figure out a solution for this annoying issue. I've been riding and racing since the early 80's and have never had a helmet do this.

I really like this helmet!
The blue Valkyrie is beautiful in person. I don't know why they keep showing the grey one as the main view. It's a Shoei RF-1200. Watch the videos. It's reasonably quiet on the interstate although the angle does make a difference. If I drop my chin about 1/2 inch it does get noticeably quieter on the highway. I'm on a FZ-09 which sits a bit more upright. But most of the time I'm running all the vents wide open and wear ear plugs. SAVE YOUR HEARING NOW! My only real complaint is that I seem to exhale and fog my glasses more than I really think it should when stopped or getting ready to ride. Any airflow makes it go away though.

RF-1200 - awesome, with earplugs
Great Shoei fit - slight oval, and tight in the cheeks. This helmet is more a sport fit than a leisurely touring fit.
Pro: Beautiful graphics detailing, solid visor mechanism that is easy to change, includes pinlock insert, high quality liner material, compact shape.
Gripes: Some whistle from the visor mechanism, cheap chinstrap pad, low tech breath deflector and chin insert (why aren't they integrated?), extra visor is pricey.
Overall - moves way more air than my 10 year old AGV, but it makes more noises (that aren't just from the air vents). Ear plugs cover up the high frequency whistles transforming this into a semi-quiet very ventilated helmet.

Quite, Light, Comfortable
After my first couple rides with the RF-1200 I can't stress how great this helmet is. The fit is spot on, the airflow is great, and it's nice and quite. It kind of hits the helmet trifecta. It's a bit tight in the cheeks but expect that will break in after a few hundred miles. My only real complaint is that when putting the helmet it's tight around my ears. If I had hair I might wear a large instead of a medium which would alleviate this issue but as it is I need to do a fair amount of adjustment after I get it on in order to un-bend my upper ear.

Straight away PERFECT!
As always, Revzilla is awesome and their video reviews most helpful. Helmet is pretty much awesome. First Shoei I have purchased and as per my product rating, the overall fit, features and finish are undoubtedly excellent. The design/color scheme is quite beautiful and the price point is a bit nicer than a comparable Arai. Although it is hard to suggest any price is too much for the highest quality of head protection, I think moving forward I will forever be a huge fan of the Shoei for all of the stated reasons.

Great helmet!
This is my first helmet.
It felt real tight at first, but I have broken it in and it fits very cumfterbale now. I get a wide clear range of vision. The pin lock works good, no issues with fogging up. I got the shield that tints with the UV light ??. The helmet does not get pushed around in the wind unless you turn your head. It stays comfortable temperature wise. I have worn it in 95 degree heat.

I called revzilla due to thinking I had ordered too small. They were very helpful and suggested that if helmet was too small that I could actually order smaller padding incerts. I also received my helmet in 3 days!

Upgraded from an Icon Helmet
I crashed wearing an Icon Airmada. That was a decent helmet for less than $150 bucks (sale) but I wanted to upgrade since I had to buy a new helmet and see if it was really worth the extra money.

IT IS

The Shoei fits tighter, in a good way, less buffeting, feels lighter, shield locks down better, with the pin lock it doesn't fog up at all.

I normally wear a medium helmet, but was in a local shop for something and decided to try it on real quick. Thankfully I did and realized I actually needed a small in the RF-1200

I can cruise around 80MPH and this thing doesn't move, buffer, or make my neck tired at all.

Nice Style, Strong Fit, Fair Price
I've ridden with Shoe for years and was looking at AGV or Arai, for change in style and function but the review you guys posted was awesome. Purchasing a new helmet online is concerning and after the quality review you posted I figured I'd just stick with a good fit and updated style and technology that I'm familiar with. The bang for the buck on this $500ish helmet is well worth it compared to some of the other $700+ and it just makes sense.

jamie b on Sep 3, 2016
I love the Shoei RF line and it was time to replace my tried and true RF-1100. I like a quality helmet because I ride almost every day for 8-9 months of the year. I put about 9K miles a year on my bike so I spend a lot of time in my helmet. Comfort and features are very important to me and these work for me better than other brands I have had.

Have had a Shoei helmet for the last 6 years and it's been good to me that whole time. The snap is finally wearing on it, so I decided it was time to upgrade. Went for something that fits the style and color of my new ride and the review I watched on the site sold me on all the features and upgrades from my previous model.

will this helmet accommodated s sena unit without cutting or altering the liner or shell?
A shopper on Sep 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I installed a Sena 10 no problem, the helmet has speaker cutouts so no more speakers crushing you ears.
does the RF-1200 come with the actual pinlock shield? ... or is it just pinlock ready? Thx!
Juan G on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it comes with the actual pinlock shield. I purchased this helmet in December - Love It! I also purchased "Shoei CWR-1 Pinlock-Ready Face Shield" in Dark Smoke; It's Also Great! It's extremely easy to change shields on this helmet!
From the photos, it seems that most Shoei helmets are more of a matte finish, and not glossy. Is this a correct observation?
John B on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have this one (RF-1200 Valkyrie) in red; and it has a glossy/metallic finish to it. It stands out pretty well imo.
Is this a modular helmet?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. This is a full face helmet, but not modular.
I passed up on the rpha11 after reading that there was too much drag in an upright position. I know these helmets aren't designed for it but how does this do on the freeway in a 3/4-upright position?
DEVON L on Apr 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have ridden with this helmet on a Ninja 1000 and a BMW S1000XR, one is a 3/4 riding position and the other is almost upright, I have no problems with this helmet on either bike. Great helmet all around.
Is there a fix for the howling/whistling noise you hear when the visor is in the open position and you are travelling >40mph? Online searches say it has to do with the cheekpads but I don't see any ways to fix it. This is already the perfect helmet otherwise, I just like riding with the visor up a lot.
Chris B on Nov 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I got thicker check pads for a more snug fit and that didn't make any difference on the wind noice. I always use ear plugs. I have a Bell star helmet and it has more wind notice. A nicer he me but noisier.
