Oval Head Dandy

This is my first full-face helmet. It's great. My head is oval-shaped. With previous standard, round helmets, I'd get forehead pain after an hour in the saddle. Not the case with this helmet. Its very comfortable, no forehead hotspot, great ventilation and noise reduction, very comfortable, NO FOGGING, no problem wearing sunglasses. The sizing is good, 2XL fit like a 2XL. Compared to other high-end oval-shaped helmets, this one is a great buy and I highly recommend it.

Best helmet I ever owned. Often when I buy a new helmet I have to peel back the forehead lining and hammer down the hard foam to accommodate my Star Trek alien forehead. Light, quiet and deadly looking. Well worth the money. Fogs up a bit at red lights. Reviewer advice to buy a size up on this helmet turned out to not be true for me.

I love this helmet, it is a high quality helmet that is only made better with he transition lens. Comfortable fabric on the inside, great venting, and the lens feels secure when in the up or down position.
Not for long oval heads.

Really cool looking helmet with great features and the transition lens is an awesome concept, but the helmet hurt like crazy. If you have a long oval head, you may want to reconsider. I now wear a Signet Q and am happy.
Nice Helmet !

Seems quite well made and quieter than my RF1000 and much more than my X1100 Shoei's. They are a PERFECT fit for me and this RS-1 is close. I use an L in Shoei and the L in the RS-1 is too tight. Goes on okay but I get a general headache after about 1 hour. I ordered an XL and it is fine but slightly looser (still okay) than either Shoei. The only complaint is the D-rings seem more fiddly than other helmets I've had. Tough to get it hooked up with gloves. Pretty quiet and nice airflow.
Great, Awesome, Superb Helmet

I was about to bite the bullet and spend the $700+ on the Schuberth S2. It's a good thing I didn’t; I am loving the RS-1. Its super quiet and I can hear myself think when on my loud S2R. Looking forward to taking it on its first tour this upcoming weekend.

I wear a Large in Shoei and the RS-1 is slightly too small for me. Felt good all-around except for being too tight. Quieter than my Shoei X11 or RS1000. Shield is VERY easy to take off and put on. Seems like a nicely made helmet all around and well worth the money.

This helmet fits well, and allows for glasses. Except at an absolute standstill the airflow keeps the helmet cool and my glasses are fog free. It is noisy, though I found it less noisy with all the vents open. I definitely feel the drag when I turn my head to the side, wish that affected my head less dramatically.

Fit is very comfortable and headliner is excellent for ventilation and moisture. Weight is perfect, balanced. Angle of attack for airflow is right where I want it, riding a 2012 CBR 1000RR.

Looks amazing fit and finish is top of the line. First helmet I received had a small crack on the back wind diffuser but got that one exchanged for a new one. The sizing runs a lot smaller than the Bell Arrow, not sure of why, but I wear a Small in the Arrow and that is even slightly large on me, whereas on the RS-1 I wear a Medium and it fits quite snug.
