Shoei RF-1100 Helmet

A motorcycle helmet of utter predictability, the RF-1100 is Shoei’s latest offering that exemplifies sport touring excellence.

Shaped and reshaped with precision, every facet of the shell and interior has been carefully looked over by Shoei to make sure the riding experience is as comfortable and safe as possible. From the aerodynamically aided venting to the EPS liner and the hand crafted shell, the qualities of the RF-1100 add up to outshine anything else out there. A best seller for a reason, the Shoei RF-1100 is the finest street motorcycle helmet available today.

RF-1100 Pearl Grey

This helmet is great. Super quiet, so quiet in fact that I have to get to the difference in engine noise for the purpose of shifting. Ventilation is great as well. With the fronts open you can really feel the air moving inside the helmet, even at very low speeds, < 5MPH!! I've only had the helmet for a week or so but so far so good. I would highly recommend this helmet to anyone looking for a new helmet. The only issue I have had is when I put the shield down, but do not lock it. At speed there is a high pitch whistle, but locking the shield fixes it right away.

Cool helmet

My last helmet was an XL Scorpion EXO-700. Good helmet, but I discovered that it wasn't fitting me properly - too much pressure on my forehead. I went to the Arai site, watched the video about fitting a helmet, measured my head and found I was actually a large. I highly recommend that video. So I was looking for an Arai, I went to the local store and tried on a bunch of helmets. None of the Arais fit well. The Shoei fit great, but wasn't what I was expecting to buy. I came home, found it here for a great price, and bought it. You know how on some helmets, you can open and close a vent and never feel a difference (even at 90mph)? That's not the case with this helmet. You notice the air from every vent, and with all of them open this thing moves some serious air. It is light, comfortable, and fits me great. My only gripe is that with all vents closed, it fogs almost instantly, and with the chin vent open (which keeps the visor completely fog-free all by itself), it flows more air than I would like. Oh well. I love this helmet, and I recommend it strongly to anyone who fits it.

Shoei - RF-1100 Solid Helmet

I wear nothing but Shoei helmets, I think they are the best! I`m very happy with this purchase. The price was $120.00 cheaper than any of the motorcycle stores where I live!

Hands down best helmet I have ever owned

My last helmet was an ARAI so I started shopping for an Arai replacement. I went to a store to try on a new Arai when I saw the new RF1100, I thought I would at least see how it fits. I could not believe how much better it fit than the Arai I was looking at and it was hundreds of dollars less. I was never really a Shoei fan but now I see why people that buy Shoeis swear by them. The helmet is super light and feels so steady at speed that it almost feels like I don’t have a helmet on, and I can see better out of this helmet than any helmet I have ever had. I used to bad mouth Shoei all the time and now I am eating my words. They really made a great helmet. I’m saving now for an X12. The helmet is not cheap but like my friends say, what’s my head worth?

Black RF-1100

This is an awesome helmet - a great step in the right direction. I had owned AFX, HJC, and now this. I own a blacked out CBR, so the black went well with it. It has great features. The visor lever allows you to crack the visor forward, or lock it in place for added safety at high speeds. The base plate pulls the visor back for a good seal, and makes it easy to change out visors. A lot of positions to have the visor open. Three positions on the top intake vents - closed, half-open, or fully open. Two positions for the exhaust vents - open or closed. This allows you to vary the air flow to your liking. Of course it gets noisy with all the vents open, but closed, it's quiet but not a whisper neither. The aerodynamics are smooth. Besides looking straight up, you can turn your head anyway and it won't shake. Even at my top speed of 161 mph. Definitely worth the price, especially for your brain-bucket. I will get another one if the time comes and I have to.

Great Helmet

I first bought a Shoei in 2002. After 8 years I thought I'd better get a new helmet. The RF1100 is even better than the internet ad indicated. Visibility, fit, and features (breath guard, chin protect, added peripheral visor cut, and vent system) all combine to make this a great upgrade. If you need a helmet, this is it.

This helmet is a vast improvement over the RF-1000 which I used prior to this helmet. Great ventilation, comfortable and reasonably quiet.

Super stoked on this helmet! All vents perform awesome and are easy to operate with gloves on. Shield lock lever also convenient and simple to use. I went with a medium and my cap size is 7-3/8”. It was a little snug at first but after several rides it has broke in nicely and is very comfortable.

Very Nice!

This helmet lives up to its name. Being a new rider, I was in between just buying a decent mid-price helmet and this 1100. I tried on many and loved this 1100 fit from the beginning. I decided to go for the bit more expensive Shoei and I can truly say I'm very glad I did. You cannot go wrong with the protection and features of this helmet. I was told to pick the smallest size helmet that would fit snug with no pressure points on the head. I measure 23 7/8 (the high end of a medium) and it fits GREAT!

Shoei RF-1100 - Great Helmet!!!

This is one great helmet. I had the RF-1000 previously, and this one is an improvement all around. It fits better than the 1000 did for me (bought the same size, Large, as with the 1000). And, the noise level is certainly not any greater than the 1000. I actually like the air flow options better as well. Finally, I like the appearance a lot better than the 1000. As you can see for me, big improvement and great helmet!!

Good quality, Good airflow, Good aerodynamics, Good looks, Good price

I have a rather oval shaped head and the fit is perfect. The cheekpads were very tight when I first tried it on, and I actually ordered the smaller ones, but after just a week of riding, they molded to my face, and now they are perfect (I ended returning the smaller pads that I ordered - also from Motorcycle Superstore). I also ride with the Arai Corsair, but the aerodynamics seem to be better with this helmet at fwy speeds. It is also MUCH quieter than the Corsair with the chin cover in place. It ventilates pretty well, although it fogs up pretty quickly with the chin cover and cooler 60 degree temps here now at stops. I have to crack the shield open. Quality is very good - pads and liner can be completely removed. The shield can be swapped in literally seconds. I change it every day when I ride to work in the morning (dark smoke shield) and back home at night (clear). The helmet weight is just average, not terribly heavy, but there are much lighter helmets out there. Has recessed area near ear for 2-way communications - very cool and thoughtful!

If you are considering upgrading...you cannot go wrong with this helmet. I bought on-line after carefully measuring my head-size and it worked well. The helmet is tighter than the HJC I bought a few years ago and it takes some getting used to, but after a month of use my Shoei feels like part of my head when I am riding. Great feeling. Airflow over the inside of the shield is excellent. Nothing bad to say about this helmet.
