What's this?

Shoei RF-SR Helmet

The Shoei RF-SR Helmet takes every step possible to deliver a quiet, comfortable ride. The CWR-1 shield is held firmly against the eyeport using a constant tension sprung hinge design; this greatly reduces opportunities for wind ingress. The exterior shell of the RF-SR is wind tunnel optimized and manufactured in multiple sizes to keep the outer envelop as small as possible. A smaller exterior shell translates directly into less turbulence, neck strain and total weight. Elements of the padded liner are interchangeable to dial in the perfect fit. Each RF-SR is handmade in Japan to the highest standards and easily surpasses DOT and SNELL M2015 safety certifications. 

Aerodynamic Shell Design:

  • Aerodynamic properties maximized through extensive wind tunnel and feedback from professional riders
  • Dual-Layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation
  • Four shell and six EPS liner sizes increase fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes

Ventilation System:

  • Two upper air intake vents are positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior; hot air is exhausted through top outlet for a more comfortable ride
  • Lower intake vent absorbs air exhaled from the mouth to help eliminate shield fogging
  • Breath guard and chin curtain included

Lightweight Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+):

  • High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient

Interior:

  • The entire interior lining (cheek pads, upper liner, and chin strap covers) can be removed for cleaning, center and cheek pads can be replaced with optional thicknesses for a customizable fit
  • E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from an injured rider’s helmet, enabling the helmet to be more easily removed from the head
  • Extra comfort provided by removable ear pads, breath guard, and chin curtain
  • Standard chin strap clip neatly secures chin strap

CWR-1 Shield and QR-E System:

  • CWR-1 shield features ribs along the top and bottom to improve rigidity and eliminate bending from wind pressure during opening and closing
  • Improved window beading features dual-layered dual lip construction that ensures a windproof and waterproof seal with every closure
  • Locking mechanism easily engages the shield lock when fully closed
  • Pinlock pins and EVO fog resistant lens insert included
  • Spring-loaded base plates offer quick shield changes
  • Five-stage rotating dial allows fine tuning of the base plate for easy shield adjustments
  • QR-E closure system allows for tool-less shield removal and installation, and provides an air-tight seal intended to significantly minimize wind noise 

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

just taken this for first ride
i didnt buy it at revzilla, but this is the only helmet that fits my head with no pressure points and i can also wear glasses in it. i got it also with the transitions shield and mounted pinlock before first use. the helmet is light and solidly built (i guess shoei stands for their helmet as they give 5year warranty).
chin guard is also inluded.

the orange color fits my ktm well :)

i can only compare it to my LS2 and shoeis' quality feel plays completely different game.

the only downside is the D-ring strap - i wish the strap with D-rings was a bit longer. but i have to get used to it coming from quick release.

Excellent all-around helmet
For starters, I didn't purchase this from Revzilla. I needed a Snell helmet for a track day event and bought it from the store I tried it on at. I spent over an hour trying on every make and model of helmets they had and narrowed it down to this one for it's perfect fit. AVG was very comfy too, but not Snell rated.

My head shape is an intermediate-oval, the same as the majority of head shapes. This fit the same as the RF-1200, along with many Aria and AVG. I was able to stuff my melon into a size medium, but was too tight a fit. But it didn't have any pressure points, which surprised me. I got a size large (head measurements are at the bottom).

I ride around for a bit on my sv650s, and I didn't notice it at all on my head. I turned to look behind getting on the freeway and the helmet didn't do a thing. Aerodynamics are exceptional. There is barely any wind buffering. Closing the visor leaves me in my own little space, the seal and clamping force working so well with the thick, optic-grade visor. The field of view is slightly wider than the many helmets I tried on. The chin is shaped nicely so I don't hit my shoulders with it while looking behind, I would guess it also helps with cutting through the wind.

On my track day, it was 45F, and raining. I didn't have the pinlock in yet, I could say I wanted to see what difference it could make, but honestly I just forgot to put it in. The visor fogged pretty easily along with my glasses. Having to leave it cracked didn't let much water in, but after a few sessions I installed the included Evo pinlock. I still had to leave the visor cracked open while in the pits for my glasses, but once I got going I could fully close it, only using the chin vent. It remained fog free while huffing and puffing in the cold rain. I'm very impressed. The rest of the helmet remained dry, the two front vents sealing out the rain. My neck remained unstrained, thanks to the light weight and great aerodynamics up to 100 mph.

I like the way it looks on me, too. Shoei used more shell sizes like Aria does to tailor the fit. With the size large, I'm not wearing a shell that fits LG-3XL like I was before. The profile is slimmer and weight is reduced. I have the flat black, it was the only one in stock, but it's growing on me.

I appreciate the safety features also, from the emergency release pulls on the neck sides for the padding so EMT's don't have to struggle to remove it, to the multi-layer eps foam.

I think Shoei's quick release/install visor system works okay, but just make sure it's fully on and closes. I thought I had it secured, and when I flipped it down it popped off. Used to do the same thing on my RF-800.

The replacement visor selection is not ideal, a faintly metallic silver or gold costs 1/4th the price of the helmet! And that's not including the pinlock!!! But wow are they perfectly made, and the helmet feels like quite a bargain that an extra cool visor is not that extravagant.

Just for you, I used two framing squares as calipers to measure my head: front to back is 8 1/8", side to side is 6 1/8" Circumference is 23.5"

Safe riding!

Chris

RF-SR not same size as RF-1200
Guys I just bought this helmet so this a short review.
Anthony says the sizing for both the RF-SR and the RF-1200. This is not true. The RF-1200 had a much narrower fit. The cheek pads were so tight I was literally biting down on the insides of my cheeks. It was solved by changing the pads size which was an extra $50. The pressure on the back of my head was also tighter.
In the end I took the SR. mainly because if the price differences. But the helmet feels slighted larger and am actually on my way back to Revzilla for larger pads.
In a Nutshell these two helmets do not have identical sizing.

Great Replacement for Shoei Qwest
Ok. I pre-ordered this helmet on Revzilla. Once I received it I heard that it wasn't as good as the RF-1200, there is a whistling sound and not that quiet. Took me a little longer to get my bike so was nervous I spent 399 here and wouldn't be able to exchange it.

Well worry no more. Picked up my Z650 and rode out with this helmet. Once I dropped the visor, very little sound. The most I did was 50 mph and still was quiet and no fog. Its a great improvement of the Shoei Qwest. Hands down.

The way the helmet fits is snug but comfortable. After awhile of riding I forgot I had a helmet on.

My First Shoei Helmet, and I LOVE IT
Ridding Conditions:
I ride in Portland Oregon, so we get plenty of rain and decently cool days. Rain is the big one here and this helmet does not leak from the top vents or visor when slightly open to completely closed. To be fair I have a full fairing on my old BMW r100rt, so that captures a lot of the wind to begin with.

Bang for your buck:
Absolutely worth every penny as this helmet is packed with great features such as the E.Q.R.S, chin curtain, breath guard, and many more features you typically don’t get in a mid to high end motorcycle helmet for this price point. The overall weight is just right for my upright ridding style.

Protection & Durability:
Thankfully I have not laid my bike down or been in any accidents so I can’t give an honest account on the Protection but Durability seems to be good thus far. I have just about put a full season of ridding in this helmet from hot summers to cool rain and it breathes and keeps me nice and cool. The only minor complaint I have is with the color that I chose which was flat black. This is going to be prone to scratches but thankfully the helmet bag they provide in the box has done a good job keeping those at bay.

Features:
Many features and my favorite is without a doubt the visor with pinlock and overall visibility. Lets be honest here we are not going to be putting on a helmet for the hell of it we want something to protect us and we also want the ability to see without something blocking our peripheral vision.

Comfort:
This helmet in the summer time is alittle tight around my cheeks, but I could upgrade the cheek pads to take care of that so no issue there. Remember I have a medium helmet. The overall comfort for ridding a full day is absolutely perfect. Its honestly gotten to the point of wearing your favorite hat you just want to wear it.

Style:
Your probably not going to blow your friends away with the way this looks, but there again it serves its purpose. It doesn’t have fancy racing spoilers and crazy designs and to be honest I’m thankful that it doesn’t. The style is perfect for $399.

Noise Level:
I have no complaints with this helmet when it comes to noise level. Its quiet and can actually hear myself talk without being drowned out by wind notice or raindrops hitting the top of my helmet. This helmet is very quiet but you can still hear traffic around you so your not completely numb to your hearing senses.

Finally Overall Recommendation:
I would say you should certainly try this helmet on first, as it seem to be tight at least for me in the cheek area. With that aside this helmet is absolutely perfect in just about every way. It has every feature I love especially having the pinlock system and that is provided in box. Please do note though that on the outer edge of the pinlock, which is hard to see unless you really try will fog up every once and awhile. Simple fix for that is to creak your visor open and it will clear right up. I fully suspect that this isn’t the only helmet that has this, so I don’t consider this an imperfection and it in no way impedes my vision while ridding. I would highly recommend this helmet for not only its price point, or Shoei’s great attention to detail, but just for the fact that this helmet really is comfortable, quiet and will get the job done. The D ring on the chin strap is near to impossible to close with ridding gloves on so fair warning, put the helmet on before putting your gloves on that simple.

Great Helmet for Scooter riders!
I ride a Vespa 300 GTS and I needed a helmet for upright riding that was light weight, good field of vision, and quiet. It is not an easy task to find all 3 qualities in a helmet that was also for an upright scooter rider. I tried 2 half helmets but when I went over 55 miles per hour the wind noise was too much. Then I tried the Bell Bullett and it was good but also the wind noise was too loud. So after spending about $900 on a few helmets I bought the Shoei RF-SR helmet and it's the perfect helmet. Now when I travel 75-80 mph the wind is not an issue. If you're a cafe racer or a scooter rider this is an awesome helmet. It's not too sporty looking and it's quiet at freeway speeds. Love this helmet!

Great product.
I bought this for my Bonneville, which leaves the rider in the wind. The helmet is very quiet, light and comfortable. It's easy to see forward when I'm tucked down on my tank as well. I got the orange, beautiful do finishes and paint. I could not be happier with the product and the price is right for the overall quality.

My first Shoei
First of all, I did not buy this from Revzilla, sorry. I got it for the same price from another supplier, but I was able to try it on in person alongside of many other helmets. I wore this helmet around the store for probably half an hour before taking it home. Felt no pressure points and still can report that this is a great helmet. Fits great, feels great (and it looks good - the matte blue is SHARP). This helmet fits my similar to the Arai Signet X. TBH, the Arai was like wearing a cloud on my head, but this Shoei is $200 less and fit within a few degrees of the Arai. I don't know if that makes me a round oval or round head, but I am mixed Asian-American and previously HJCs fit my head the best, probably because they're a Korean company making helmets based on the heads they know. I did try the RF-1200 because they have great style and tons of amazing reviews, but it was TOO tight in the cheeks and across forehead. It felt like it was stretching my vision. If you find the RF-1200 to be a little bit too tight, maybe because you're not full Western European descended, this might be your answer.

Active airflow was surprisingly good despite only having 3 intake vents: 2 on the head and the chin vent.

I don't know really how quiet this is. There's definitely wind noise, but not so loud that I'm completely in a tunnel, but sometimes when I read reviews about the quietness of a helmet, it sounds like we're all expecting zero wind. Maybe one day we'll get there, but not today. The wind in this helmet is not really noticeable until around 50 mph. Then it sounds like being in a car with the windows down. Which, as I understand, is normal. No weird whistlings or anything like that.

The visor is great and comes with pinlock. The visor has a good field of vision and strong detents. Love the detents! My HJC's detents would slam down on me as soon as I got going over 10MPH.

I'm really pleased with this purchase and my only regret is that I didn't get it from here.

Great replacement to Qwest but louder
I replaced my Shoei Qwest with the RF-SR. As far as $400 helmets go, this is about as good as it gets. Build quality is on par with other Shoei helmets. Definitely louder than the Qwest but way better airflow.

My YT video comparing the RF-SR and Qwest: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWcwHBIr8sU

Pros:
-Awesome airflow
-Snell and DOT approved
-Pinlock visor and insert included
-Very comfortable
-Easy to install Bluetooth communicators

Cons:
-Louder than most $400 helmets (louder than my Qwest)
-Only solid color ways

Better than Qwest
I bought this to replace my Qwest and i'm pleased i did. Its nice and quiet and comfortable and i feel safe and secure wearing it. No real buffering when riding the highway at 60mph plus. I've had several helmets and this is one of the quietest. Cheek pads were tight when new but they compress fairly quickly with use so don't worry. If you have tried on the SR 1200 buy a size smaller in this as the internal shape is different and its def more roomy.

It's a Shoei. Very good quality. New model with price point in my budget. Very quiet and light.

After trying on the current selection of Shoei helmets to include the Qwest, RF1200, and RF-SR...I found the SR to be the most comfortable fit for my head shape. I wore several RF900 models for many years. The SR has a very similar fit and internal feel.

Right color - orange. Well ... what I wanted was traffic-cone orange but all Shoei had was this pale wanna-be orange that's more like Shoei wants to pretend it isn't really orange. And it's a Shoei, whose helmets I've been wearing for many years so it's super-high quality, fits my head, and Shoei helmets are quiet. Also, in my rather extensive experience, Shoei helmets have minimal wind buffet; they don't induce oscillations at speed.

Is this replacing the Qwest?
A shopper on Oct 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's right in the middle between the Qwest and RF 1200. It's tuned for every day commuting and casual riding (like the Qwest) yet has emergency quick release cheek pads and shield system as the RF 1200. Depending on how you look at it, the RF SR is either an upgraded Qwest or a more affordable 1200. Looks and shell shape are smack in the middle as well.
is the fit same as RF1100 ?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes same fit, but I think the RF-SR fells better/more comfortable.

Does this helmet take the same cheek pads and top helmet liner as the RF-1200?
Christian L on Nov 21, 2016

Is this a replacement for rf-1200?
