The state-of-the-art wind tunnel facility at Shoei’s Ibaraki factory is an integral part of the helmet design process. Thanks to time well spent in the tunnel from its very beginning stages of development, the RF-1200 boasts a more compact and aerodynamic shell than its predecessor, earning praise and appeal as Shoei’s lightest 2015 Snell-Certified full-face model to date. Additionally, the RF-1200 offers a reduction in wind noise without blocking the road’s “informative sounds” thanks to its optimal shell aerodynamics and liner components that have been designed to prevent unwanted road noises from entering through the bottom of the helmet.
The RF-1200’s CWR-1 shield provides a vast field of vision that rivals helmetless peripheral. In addition to protecting against 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays, the CWR-1 shield offers a distortion-free view throughout the entire range thanks to Shoei’s 3D injection-molding process. Additionally, innovative new ribs on the top and bottom edge of the shield improve rigidity and eliminate the bending that may occur from wind pressure and during the opening and closing process, and an improved shield locking mechanism rounds out Shoei’s most advanced shield system to date. Pinlock EVO fog-resistant system The all-new RF-1200 comes equipped with a Pinlock EVO fog-resistant system, offering the most effective fog-resistant protection in existence. A simple, one-step installation process makes every Pinlock lens easy to install.
QR-E Base Plate
Coupled with the CWR-1 shield, the RF-1200’s all-new QR-E base plate system facilitates quicker shield changes than ever before. Once a shield is installed, the strengthened spring-loaded base plates pull the shield back against the dual-lip, dual-layered window beading to ensure a wind and waterproof seal with each and every closure. Add to the mix an all-new five-stage rotating dial that allows fine-tuning the base plate’s function more precisely than ever, and you’re left with the most advanced base plate/shield combination on the market today.
Utilizing Shoei’s wind tunnels to help reveal the optimal balance between airflow and silence, Shoei engineers equipped the all-new RF-1200 with a large, three-position lower vent shutter for ease of use with riding gloves, three upper air vents for optimal air intake, and four uniquely-positioned upper exhaust outlet vents to take better advantage of negative pressure suction-all yielding dramatically-improved cool-air intake and hot-air expulsion.
The RF-1200 is equipped with a fully removable, washable, adjustable, and replaceable 3D Max-Dry Interior System II. The 3D center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider’s head, allowing for an extremely comfortable fit while maintaining the firm hold necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding. Additionally, the RF-1200’s 3D-shaped cheek pads are available in multiple thicknesses for a customizable fit, and Shoei’s exclusive Max-Dry Interior System II liner material absorbs and dissipates sweat and moisture twice as fast as traditional Nylon interiors.The RF-1200 is also equipped with Shoei’s exclusive Emergency Quick Release System (E.Q.R.S.) that allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from an injured rider’s helmet.
