Shoei RF-1200 Flagger Helmet


The Shoei RF line of helmets has become one of the most ubiquitous helmet styles in the world since their introduction in 1983. After decades of refinement, we find ourselves at the RF-1200, easily the most dialed in offering from Shoei, and a perennial favorite at RevZilla.

Shoei RF-1200 Flagger Motorcycle HelmetNew for Fall of 2016, Shoei has given the RF-1200 a new skin in the form of the “Flagger” graphic - perfect for the rider who was leaning towards a black helmet, but can’t quite bring themselves to pull the trigger on something so basic. The Shoei FR-1200 Flagger Helmet is a mix of classic pinstriping and futuristic tech graphics. This would be perfect for the rider looking to coordinate their helmet with their motorcycle or gear. You get a splash of color in red, blue, or hi-viz depending on the flavor you prefer.

Of course, the RF-1200 has not changed at all, only the graphic on the shell. You are still getting an ultra-premium, do-it-all helmet, coming in at a lightweight 3.5 pounds and still managing to satisfy the rigorous SNELL M2015 standard. Slim, aerodynamic, comfortable, well-ventilated, and as safe as you could ever hope for, the RF-1200 is a helmet I would never hesitate to trust with my life. Take advantage of this limited edition offering and pick up a “Flagger” graphic, an perfect blend of classic lines and cutting-edge style.

Get out and explore!

Shoei RF-1200 Parameter Helmet

Aggressively styled, yet with a mind for long-range riding. That is the Shoei RF-1200. Premium materials, expert craftsmanship, and with a pedigree that is rarely matched in any industry. It is a staple of road riding, and is one of the best lids in the game. The Parameter graphic (new for Fall 2016) is one of the latest additions to the RF1200 lineup for riders who want a bit of extra style.

Shoei RF-1200 Parameter Motorcycle HelmetThe Shoei RF-1200 Parameter Helmet brings together a traditional go-fast graphic with a bit of digital camo. In the strategic use of high-contrast colorways and skilled shading, the Parameter graphic provides a uniquely designed look that stands out in just about any crowd. Additional features of the RF1200 Parameter Helmet include a lightweight Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus outer shell and a reduced profile for better aerodynamics (as well as less of a bobblehead look!), as well as a 3D Max-Dry System II liner, an emergency quick-release system, and an aerodynamically tuned construction aimed at reducing noise throughout the ride.

The best are the best for a reason. They do their job, at a high level, all of the time. The Shoei RF-1200 has been doing just that since it was introduced, and will continue to do so for years to come.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…

Shoei RF-1200 Helmets: Ruts and Intense

Tony - Content Coordinator

It’s one of the most popular helmets of the past few years, and for good reason. Ther RF-1200 is a juggernaut of the road and performs very well throughout a variety of riding scenarios and styles. For the Fall of 2016, a handful of new graphics extend the line for those in search of something a bit more than standard colors.

Shoei RF-1200 Ruts Motorcycle HelmetThe Shoei RF-1200 Ruts Helmet is designed to look much like the type of pavement that riders want to avoid. Through skillful shading and master artistry, the Ruts graphic provides both perceived depth and texture to the RF-1200 shell. In a notably asymmetrical design, the RF1200 Ruts Helmet provides a bit of uniqueness in the world of motorcycle helmet graphics as it allows for a full-helmet experience that leads to increased visual intrigue throughout.

Shoei RF-1200 Intense Motorcycle HelmetFor riders in search of a bit more traditional graphic, the Shoei RF-1200 Intense Helmet provides precisely that. Heavily favoring Pink throughout, the swirling nature of the Intense graphic works well to mimic an enjoyable ride . Aside from the graphical aesthetics, as is the case with the Ruts helmet as well, the main features of the RF-1200 helmet are noted in the crafting, construction, and materials of the helmet itself.

Great helmets. Great graphics. Shoei Fall 2016. Simple as that.

Shoei GT-Air Helmets: Decade and Pendulum

Tony - Content Coordinator

Time and momentum. They are integrally intertwined, and equally as important. One we move through, and the other determines how we do it. New for the Fall of 2016, Shoei brings both to the forefront with the GT-Air Decade and GT-Air Pendulum.

Shoei GT-Air Decade Motorcycle HelmetThe Shoei GT-Air Decade Helmet is a throwback design draped over a modernistic frame. Taken straight out of a classic motorcycle race movie, or stock footage from a bygone era of two-wheeled racing, the Decade graphic is one rooted in nostalgia. However, at the same time, the GT-Air blueprint that it covers is anything but old. Constructed of some of the best helmet shell materials in the business, the GT-Air Decade also features a max-air ventilation system (as the name would imply), a 3-D Max-Dry center pad, eyeglass-compatible interiors, and a CNS-1 shield system for optimal optics.

Shoei GT-Air Pendulum Motorcycle HelmetMoving through the decades are one thing, moving through them with a bit of force is another entirely. To provide a bit of precisely that, the Shoei GT-Air Pendulum Helmet is a graphic that has been designed in a way that expresses movement, even while sitting still. With three high-contrast colorways available, the GT-Air Pendulum provides that not only serve to add a bit of visual vibrancy, but also to make riders more visible on the road. Just as with the Decade helmet, the Pendulum features all of the great GT-Air amenities, such as a built in drop-down sun visor and an Emergency Quick-Release System.

New graphics are always fun to see. There’s nothing like injecting a bit of aesthetic excitment into an ultra-premium lineup. For the Fall of 2016, that is exactly what Shoei has done with the Decane and Pendulum GT-Air helmets.

Have fun out there, have fun, and as always…

Shoei X-14 Helmets: Rainey and Lawson

Tony - Content Coordinator

Retro jerseys are the new rage. Throwbacks to a bygone era. A glimpse into the history of our favorite sports, franchises, and players. For motorcyclists, however, the jersey’s get left at home -- our retro is all about the helmet.

Shoei X-14 Rainey Motorcycle HelmetThe Shoei X-14 Rainey Helmet is a homage to the great Wayne Rainey. Taking its aesthetic from the graphic that the racer notably rocked during some of his most legendary rides, the X-14 merges the style of one of the greatest motorcyclists of all-time, with the contemporary, ultra-premium construction of a modern race juggernaut. In addition to the sheer style and class that comes with the Rainey graphic (and the swag of a 3 time 500cc World Champion), racers get one of the most renowned racing lids in the game in the X-14 blueprint upon which the graphic resides.

Shoei X-14 Lawson Motorcycle HelmetFollowing suit with the retro-racer theme, the Shoei X-14 Lawson Helmet gets its style from that of 4 time Grand Prix motorcycle racing world Champion, Eddie Lawson. It is fitting that the two helmets are being released as the same time as the both legends have remained friends to this day. As with the X-14 Rainey, the X-14 Lawson helmet is a rooted in the past as it is precision-crafted for the future. Additional features of the Shoei X14 Lawson helmet include a high-performance Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus shell, a max-air ventilation system, and extensively researched aerodynamics for top-end performance at the track.

Every sport has its legends. That is part of the fun. In looking back at the long lineage of great motorcycle racers, both Wayne Rainey and Eddie Lawson definitely reside in such territory.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
