Welcome to our detailed breakdown of the Shoei RJ Platinum-R open face helmet. Now, this is going to be a great option from the application side of things for really a cruiser upright riding, touring, for someone who doesn't want a full face helmet that typically just wants a visor. There is no shield available for this guy. So really, a helmet like this is going to cover you with a pair of sunglasses or a pair of Bobster eyewear or something that's suited for motorcycle riding. But you have to think about that going into it.
If we take a peek at this and what's going to make this special in that low $200 price point is really looking at a helmet that's using some of these same protective features that you're seeing in the full faced or higher end models of Shoei's. It's an AIM+ composite shell construction. It's going to be Snell 2005 rated for double impact throughout the shell - obviously not the open face area. If we take a peek at the ventilation system, obviously you have a ton of air coming in through the front. You have a very similar open and close venturi vent system here on the back. The nice part is they've added two little, two positioned chimney vents here on the front, above the visor that are going to vent directly to your scalp. The channel is built in to the inside of that. They are open and closable. But really with a helmet that is full faced like this, in my opinion, having them be open and closable is a bit moot.
The other nice thing is if we look at this, this is that wine red color. You've got 10 available color options here in the RJ Platinum-R. I'm going to pull over our Shoei donut, what we lovingly call our "shonut." We're going to show you the interior guts of this. The first thing you want to think about is fit. It's going to be that intermediate Shoei oval shape. But whenever you discontinue that chin bar there, it's going to be a slightly different level of tightness around the face. So just like a modular, just like any other open faced helmet, if we look at it, it's going to be slightly loose around the outside of the face. The thing I like about this, using their AIM+ shell, is... look how stiff that is. I'm really pushing on that. A lot of times, just see with open face helmets that when you don't have the connected chin bar, you lose a lot of rigidity through the opening.
We look at this nice neck roll, removable cheek pads, fully adjustable liner. It's nice that you use the brow fit system here for the front. What that does is it gets you away from having to have a snap up in the forehead region. It creates a more seamless design. It's the 3D molded comfort liner that comes out and has cut outs for the air channels. The chin straps are going to have a liner connected to them. As we look, you can see the ventilation holes, you can see the EPS, and you can see the channels that run along it.
Again, you're getting a good amount of functional features that when you're riding, it's going to keep you cool, keep you protected, keep you comfortable. When you're comfortable, your gear is not distracting you and you're enjoying your ride more and you're also safer.
