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.
The 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.
For 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.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
