Best Helmet I've Ever Owned
First of all, I purchased this helmet on a Wednesday night, it shipped Thursday and I received it Saturday...fast shipping!

My first ride with it was the next day, we did about 250 miles and I never felt better. Keep in mind, I was wearing a half shell and 2 reasons I was wanting a 3/4 was for ventilation and to help cut wind noise in my ears. I got exactly that! The helmet was a little bigger than I was used to, but doesn't look weird or anything...besides, I don't care too much what I look like, I'm in it for the ride.

Immediately after taking off, I noticed the air flow. What a difference that made. I used to be in a hurry to get my old helmet off when I got home because I would sweat so much in it. But this one is no problem. I'll leave it on while pumping gas and don't feel any different than if I weren't wearing a helmet...and I live in El Paso and the heat has been over a 100 degrees! So that should say something. I get home now and when I take my helmet off, my head is dry.

Once I got on the highway, the noise control was much better than my half shell. I didn't have all of that wind rushing in my ears and I actually hear the music from my speakers a lot better.

I was a little nervous purchasing a helmet online that I didn't have a chance to try on, but with Revzilla's exchange/return policy and exceptional customer service, I wasn't worried. Fortunately, based on the sizing chart, my head measured out to be right in the medium size so that's what I ordered, fit perfectly. The helmet is snug on my head without causing any hotspots or pain. Plus, riding on the highway, my head doesn't bobble around like it did with my half shell, so the aerodynamics on this helmet are top notch.

I would definitely recommend this helmet to anybody!

Super Comfortable and Flows a ton of air!
I stopped in the Revzilla Philadelphia showroom looking for a new 3/4 open face helmet to match my new 2014 Mysterious Red Street Glide Special. After trying a Bell, a Biltwell and a couple others, I could tell that while they looked great, they weren't for me because I was getting hot spots on my forehead after a could minutes of wear. Their helmet guru, Steve, came over and asked if he could assist me. He took one look at my head and knew the Shoe RJ Platinum R would fit my head shape and that I was a size Medium. He brought it out in what they call their "wine" color. Perfect fit, very comfortable and it matches my bike almost exactly. I ordered it a couple weeks later and when I wore it on my first ride, I was astonished at how well it flows air. It was a 90 degree day and my head was dry when I got to work after my 40 minute commute. The helmet is exceptionally comfortable and it is quieter than my previous 3/4 helmet (an Ed Hardy Captain America 3/4 helmet). I noticed I could turn the volume down an average of about 3-5 notches and still hear it just as well, if not better than before. Absolutely love this helmet and highly recommend it. For size comparison, I also have a Bell RS1, Bell Mag9 Sena, an Outlaw USMC Half Helmet, a Schuberth C3 flip face helmet and they are all size Medium, so the Shoei fits true to size.

Why I bought this Helmet
I really like the inexpensive HJC CS-5N Helmet
A very good helmet, so why buy an expensive helmet.
As you get older protection becomes more important.

Pro
1.muti layer foam, special muti material shell.
gives you a Snell 2010 rating
2.Shoei Helmet excellent quality
3 Is always a comfort to wear.
4.Windtunnel tested.
5. Good with glasses.

Con
1.Helmet is big, slightly bigger than my HJC.
Even with 5 different shell sizes and special material shell
it has to be big in order to get two layers of foam so your head is better protected.
2.Because of the shape of the shell and 5 sizes of shells
It is hard to get on, once on fells great.

Conclusion
If money is not a problem get a Shoei
If not get a HJC CS-5N it is a very good Helmet.

For the features and looks
This helmet was a compromise from my Shoes full face helmet and a brain bucket that i'd like to wear, but never would cause i'd die in a crash.
This helmet does make you look like a cop, esp in white, but it was the visor i really wanted because i drive into the sun twice a day on commute. i do wear glasses and not having to take them off to put my helmet on is a big win.

Excellent Balance between Retro Style and Contemporary Features
I was on the market for a Snell approved ¾ helmet because my full face helmet was too hot for summer riding. Most, if not all the alternatives I examined triggered nostalgic feelings. This was nice but they also appeared to be almost identical to what I was wearing in the 70’s. As their Snell approval indicates, they may be safer; but something was still missing for me.

First of all, I was looking for ventilation, even if an open face helmet was in question. After all, ventilation channels can always be switched off but they are useful on hot weaher and/or at slower speeds. Secondly, I was seeking out a more beautiful helmet than the 70’s offerings, without compromising my nostalgic feelings towards the era.

The Shoei RJ Platinum R was just what I was looking for: Snell approved, ventilated and very beautiful IMO. Since I was confident that Shoei would not offer a low quality helmet and since quality comes at a price, I pulled the trigger. I am now so happy that I did.

The fit can be either true to size or maybe very slightly large. I am not certain because unlike full face helmets, the cheeks flex a bit. This flex may be misleading me towards wondering if it is slightly large. I purchased an XL for my 62 cm (24.40 inches) head and it fits like a glove. Since my same size Arai Quantum ST full face helmet fits a bit tighter, I may be thinking that the Shoei RJ Platinum R is a bit on the large side. However, once it is on my head, it nicely presses my cheeks and it does not move laterally or vertically, even if I try to move it with my hands.

It feels quite light and it is extremely comfortable. The inner materials are velvety with a soft tactile feel which is not skiddy. In other words; perfect. The ventilation is a big bonus for me. I can feel a light breeze on the top of my head if I desire so. I do desire so most of the time in hot weather. I did shut the ventilation off a few times during night riding. Please note that I wore it only above 15?C (59?F) so far, behind the tall windshield of my Harley Road King. I cannot comment on cold weather comfort but I wouldn’t think it would be any different than other ¾ helmets.

Again behind the windshield, it is not as noisy as I expected. In fact, it is less noisy than my Arai Quantum ST with the windshield fully open. This is not a fair comparison as the fully open windshield of a full face helmet swishes in the wind but I wanted to give an idea on the noise level. Needless to say, my full face helmet is significantly less noisy when its windshield is closed. The visor of the Shoei RJ Platinum R does not seem to swish, nor does it make my head wobble. On the other hand, it does not help much when facing the sun, either.

My regular sunglasses stay securely put in it even if I rotate my head at speed. It is easy to put sunglasses on and off when wearing the helmet, thanks to the purpose built conduits. Nevertheless, I ordered goggles with polycarbonate lenses as regular sunglasses would injure my eye if a solid object hits at speed. As far as I know, there is no bubble shield for this helmet. I don’t know if universal ones or the ones from other manufacturers would fit or not. So, beware if this is your intention.

After about a total of 1500 km (930 miles) with this helmet in nice weather, I decided to expand the temperature range I had in mind for using it. I ordered a neoprene half face mask and a neck collar and I already have a balaclava. I am so comfortable with it that I reckon my full face helmet will be on call only in really cold weather.

All in all, I can recommend this helmet to anyone who is looking for an open face helmet in this price range.

Shoei RJ Platinum-R delivers both comfort and style
I'm pleased with my selection of this Shoei RJ Platinum helmet for a few reasons. Number one is the overall comfort of the product as well as the fit and finish. I prefer a 3/4 helmet for the level of protection it provides. The volume of air flow through the top of helmet is adequate to maintain a cool head in warm weather. The D ring chin strap design.is easy to secure and release. Overall the product is superb and would recommend it to others on those long cruising rides.

Great open faced helmet
I own a Shoei Qwest full face in 2XL and this RJ-Platinum in 3XL fits my head a bit better. I have a wider, rounder head and the absence of the chin bar gives me a little bit of give that makes the helmet more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time. I like to use the RJ-Platinum for around the house driving, and still prefer to wear the Qwest on the highways/freeways going 70+.

I wish companies like Arai, Shoei, et al., invested in a few lines that cater to people with rounder heads. Based on what I've read, companies used to have a few lines for rounder heads, but everything is moving towards the middle of the bell curve, i.e. intermediate oval/neutral. I wouldn't mind spending more on a smaller batch produced helmet if it fit my head perfectly. As it is, I have to try on 30+ helmets to find something that works.

Love that the RJ-Platinfum is a SNELL certified helmet, one of the very few SNELL certified open faced helmets on the market today. Extremely well made, same shell and interior materials as the higher priced Shoei helmets, but without some of the advanced features, e.g. internal visor, more quiet, etc. At around $300, though, this helmet is great value for the $.

Great quality and value.
Super comfortable fit on my large slightly oblong head. Liner feels very premium, soft yet durable. Air flow is great and really felt a difference when I opened up the back exhaust vents on 90 degree plus days. Vision is great with a wide perspective. Minor gripe is how tall it sits on you hear and not a low profile as my Bell C -500 which super low profile, but again just an astetics call. The helmet does a great job of keeping out a good amount of road noise while still allowing to here what going on around you and my stereo. Feels like a full face with the amount of coverage, yet still plenty of open face feel. Would definitely buy another one.

This helmet is great and high quality. My brains are worth every dollar.
B G on Jun 13, 2017
In need of a new open face for summer. Love the fit and finish of my RF 1200 Indy Marquez and expect the same from this one.

Shoei reputation for safety / good compromise between full face and half helmet

I have owned several Shoei helmets and I have liked all of them alot. They are more comfortable than other brands I have owned and I have been riding for almost 50 years.
Charles L on May 2, 2017
Great helmet. I'd owed Shoei helmets before and I love this helmet for everything except summer riding when I wear a half helmet. After about a year of riding with it, I still love it.
Dave K on Apr 30, 2017
Hoping it fits like my Neotec. Tried two other open face helmets before this...and sent both back.
Kristian W on Apr 25, 2017
Larger field of view than full coverage helmet, lighter and easier on my neck. Also, 3/4 helmets with shields are louder with the shield down than with it up, at least on my R1200RT. I figured I would just forgo the shield altogether and just wear sunglasses since my bike has a great windshield.

This is the only real choice for an Open Face Snell 2015 helmet for autocross. The others were more expensive or had unnecessary features.

Current helmet is a Shoei RF1100 and have been more than happy with it. Having worn Scorpion and AGV in the past, I've found Shoei to be my favorite one.
Jesse H on Mar 25, 2017
Had two just like it before and know the quality and fit of this helmet.

I have Shoei RJ Wine colored helmet that I have used for over 20 years with my Honda Aspencade. I love it!
Rich M on Mar 8, 2017
I love my Shoei RF-1200 I bought from you, and I wanted an open-faced option for riding in the heat. Fit and quality is superb!.
Jeff T on Feb 13, 2017
The best open face helmet on the market.
Randy M on Feb 3, 2017
I've had this hat for many years. I'm replacing the exact same helmet after 10 years! Wore one like it as a motorcop years ago. Great helmet, wide visibility, grest visor and overall good looks. A helmet similar to this saved my life as a Motor cop. I have another Shoei full cover for long trips.

The Shoei line of products have always been one of quality in both fit, finish, and materials of construction. The price point on the Shoei RJ Platinum-R Helmet with the features offered was within my budget. The RJ Platinum-R helmet was exactly what I was looking for to use with a Sena 20s when riding my 2016 Harley Davidson Street Glide Special.

Good reputation for a quality helmet at a reasonable price
Timothy P on Sep 14, 2016
Fit is awesome light and comfortable! air vents are a plus. Ear room is great, even with 20s speakers with the added felt...which installs easy btw. Glad I spent the coin...well worth it
Marlin C on Sep 13, 2016
I've owned other Shoei products and like them. Needed an open face for my scooter. looking at upgrading my Neotech to a Schuberth or latest modular from Shoei.
DAVID W on Aug 17, 2016
Fit and Finish are excellent.
Best open face that works for me.
Its a Shoei
Wes B on Jul 31, 2016
I ride a Harley Road Glide in FL during all four seasons. I have a Shoei GT-Air for winter, but needed a cooler helmet for summer that provides comfort, protection and style like a Shoei.

Great fit, look, and safety. Quality product.

Wanted a retro look that still provided protection with the option of a plastic face shield if desired.

wanted a great quality open face, Shoei is a known brand and I wanted the capability to add headphones or an audio intercom too
jon k on May 13, 2016
It gets VERY hot in Louisiana during the summer months. Love an open face helmet but wanted something with additional ventilation. I have read great reviews for this helmet. Time to find out for myself.

What are the snaps on the side of the helmet for?
I've seen those snaps on multiple open face helmets, but none of them mention what the snap is for.
Would it be for some type of goggles? If so, can someone recommend some goggles that work with that snap-style attachments?

Thanks!
A shopper on Jun 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The snap is for a snap on face shield that covers the whole face. The face shield uses all the snaps on the helmet.
What type of face shield can be used with the RJ Platinum helmet?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Any standard three snap on face shield either clear or tinted, My preferred style is the solid bubble over the flip up curved. But that's just me. You choose what works best for you.
Besides the white or black air vent what's the difference between white and crystal white? Hard to tell with laptop or ipad.
A shopper on Dec 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have the Crystal White. Has a bit of flake to it and is a bit "creamier" in color. Hope this helps :-). Great basic 3/4.
I have a Shoei Qwest helmet - in Large, which fits me perfectly (oval-ish head). I'm looking for an open face helmet for the summer. Would the Shoei RJ Platinum fit similarly. In other words, should I order the large size?

thanks
Steven F on Jul 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have the Neotec and the RJ Platinum-R in large. They seem to fit the same and I really like both helmets. If you get the RJ helmet too big it will seem to lift when you ride. I think that you will be good with the large and I'm sure that you'll love the helmet.
Good luck
Jimmy
will the RJ platinum fit mx goggles and do any models you carry that would fit better then others?

thanks
A shopper on Sep 24, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Should fit!
I am looking for an open face helmet that is comfortable and does not give me a major sore spot in the top center of my forehead. I have a Harley Davidson open face now that just kills me after an hour in the saddle. My buddy has the same helmet and same problem, so I know its not me. I looked at the video for the Shoei RJ Platinum and the interior padding looks very similar to the HD helmet I have. Can someone advise if this is a problem or comment on a comfortable open face?
Larry
A shopper on Jul 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: A couple of things about this helmet, one is the size seems to run alittle big,normally I wear a medium helmet and this Shoei is lose on my head,should have ordered a small. My hat size is 71/8. Secondly, it fits a round head better than an oval shape. My stepson hears it and it makes a sore spot in the center of his forehead. His head shape is more oval than mine.Other than the size I do like the helmet, sturdy visor and quality materials. Hope this helps.
Does the Shoei Plantinum-R open face helmet have built-in space in the ear area for a communications system?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes is does. I am using the Sena SMH10 with the standard boom mic and it fits perfectly. The helmet is a great buy and I love mine when the weather is a little warmer. Hope this helps.
How is the fit around the cheeks? I have another brand modular and the cheek shape makes my jaw ache after a while. I want the protection but not have the cheek pads so tight......
A shopper on Apr 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Shoei RJ Platinum Helmet fits nicely around your cheeks ... snug but not tight. A first, the cheek pads may seem tight but give it a little time for break-in and you will have a nice comfortable fit for many years. I own two Shoei Helmets and this one is my favorite because of the fit and weight. Hope this helps.
Shoei RJ Platinum-R Helmet.................Need to know few things about this helmet, I have had problems finding the right size for helmets, it's always been an issue for me, I wear a large size on full face n never had issues with them, but recently I ordered large open face of Bell Rogue helmet and it was tight and very uncomfortable, firstly because of the less padding and secondly it didn't fit completely without hurting my top part of my head if I fully pulled it down, btw I am completely bald, I shave my head, so got no extra cushion from my hair hehe :P.... so I don't know if large will fit me? And about the padding, is there more padding than other open face helmets? The problem is as I don't live in U.S, it will be hard for me to return it...As I will ship it to my cousin's place in Virginia and he will be coming here. and the helmet will reach me 10 or 11 of Feb. So Can you please help me out
A shopper on Jan 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I boyght a large and fit right. I also wear large Arai full face helmets. I assume the large Shoi will fit you fine. I prefer the comfort aspect of Arai's shape over the Shoei, but they don't really make a nice open face.
I also spend 12 hours a day in a Shoei RJ. I do get a pressure mark on my forehead but it doesn't hurt. It's not something I get with any Arai helmets.
I hope this helps you. Good luck.
Hi
I am looking for an open face. I ride with glasses only and am looking for a helmet with two things in mind, quiet and comfort under $200 what do you recommend?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the Shoei RJ Platinum helmet for knocking around the village in. Helmets are required but I didn't want to squish a full-face on for running to the coffee shop or market. This Shoei fit the requirements perfectly. I wear eye or sun glasses with it (also required by law) and it works well. It's not as quiet as a full face (but not at all noisy); it is comfy, wearable for long rides. It feels good on because it hugs my face a little, but not restrictive. The only downside in my opinion is that it is meaty, with lots of protection, a lot of helmet, and it has a bulby top. I just think that's because it is Snell as well as DOT, giving more cushion.
