2. Shoei RF-1200 Helmet – Solid (Red)

The pinnacle of perfection, the Shoei RF-1200 Helmet represents the culmination of 56 years of helmet heritage. The RF1200 was designed from its inception to be an industry leader in comfort, performance and protection. The wind tunnel-tested shell is optimized to provide a compact and aerodynamic shape, reducing wind-noise, buffeting and weight.

Shoei not only designed the RF-1200 to be one of the most comfortable helmets on the market, but also one of the safest, meeting both DOT and SNELL M2015 safety standards.

Whether you are a track day enthusiast or cross-country cruiser, the RF-1200 will allow you to ride with confidence, freeing you to concentrate on the road and, most importantly, enjoy the ride.

Slim And Light Weight Design

One of the most important features of a quality helmet is that you hardly know it’s there protecting your head. Shoei has reduced the weight of the RF-1200 by using a slimmer design and building a distinct line into the side of the helmet that also serves as an accent. As a result, the new Shoei RF-1200 is lighter than any other Snell certified helmet in the current Shoei lineup.

Shell Construction

The slim design of the Shoei RF-1200, with its distinct accent cut line, widens the bottom of the helmet to help ease the process of putting the RF-1200 on or taking it off. Further advancing the comfort of the AIM+ shell is the industry-leading four shell sizes that the Shoei RF-1200 comes in. The impact-absorbing dual liner consists of two layers incorporating different densities, helping to effectively balance the potential impact applied to the more rigid shell.

Quietness

Through advancements in the aerodynamic shape, improved interior linings and a new and improved shield system the rider will experience a very quiet and comfortable riding experience. The interior of the RF-1200 has achieved a balance of a comfortably soft fit and a firm, stable hold. The design of the cheek pads also improves the motion of the neck, thus helping the rider to check traffic behind him/her for example.

Shield System

The CWR-1 Pinlock shield features ribs on top and bottom of the shield to improve rigidity and eliminate bending of the shield caused by wind pressure or the opening and closing of the shield.

In addition to the CWR-1 shield, Shoei has developed a new base plate for the RF-1200. The Quick-Release Self-Adjusting base plate is spring-loaded and pulls the shield back onto the helmet, sealing it tightly against wind and rain. The addition of a five-stage rotating dial allows for fine-tuning of the base plate for easy shield adjustments.

Ventilation

A large lower three-position vent, three upper air vent intakes and four uniquely positioned upper exhaust outlet vents combine with the Dual Density EPS liner to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS liner.

Features:

  • Four shell sizes
  • Dual-density EPS liner
  • Superior ventilation
  • 3D Max-Dry System II Liner

The integrated shell spoiler is repositioned to reduce lift better and drag at speed, while the Aero Deflector along the chin bar adds stability. A micro ratchet chin strap makes securing the helmet and removing the helmet quick and easy. Noise Isolator cheek pads improve the seal along the neck opening of the helmet to keep turbulent air out.

The 360 Pivot Locking System secures the chin bar in the locked down position and a multi-piece EPS liner made out of varying densities of foam absorbs impact energy. The Shoei Neotec 2 is designed to integrate with the Sena SRL Communication System for a clean and low profile installation.

How We Choose Our Selection of Coolest Motorcycle Helmets

Now we have presented you with our list of the coolest motorcycle helmets out there, you may be wondering about how we chose our selection in the first place. Well, there were a number of different elements to consider, which we will run through in the following section. Obviously, style comes high on the list of considerations, but this is no good without a helmet that is practically functional as well.

Graphics and Overall Style

When someone sits up and takes notice of a helmet, it is the graphics and design that they pay attention to first. We like to think that we have included a little bit of everything in the list of coolest motorcycle helmets. There are products inspired by movies like Predator and Iron Man.

There are those that have a retro feel that could have come from a different era. There are helmets with unique graphics and artwork. We have also chosen helmets that offer a more simplistic design, but one that still exudes the elements of cool that you would want.

No two people like the same thing, which is why we have tried to offer a wide range of scope in our choices. Some of them may be a little too out there for you, but we are sure that there is something that suits our list.

Uniqueness

This falls into a similar category as the previous one, but it is not exactly the same. And that’s the point. We have tried to look out for unique motorcycle helmets that offer something different rather than just the same old off-the-shelf mundaneness. We have tried to choose some that are not popular with all other riders, so you are not going to look exactly the same as other riders. Many of the helmets feature specially commissioned designs from different artists. And while some of the helmets don’t have as many product reviews for this reason, we were looking for coolness, which means that not as many people will be wearing the helmet and you can really stand out from the crowd!

Base Helmet Quality

There is no point in a helmet being cool if it doesn’t do the basic job of protecting your head. We have chosen helmets that offer good quality and reliability. Many of them have lightweight frames but can still redistribute any impact damage evenly.

Also, there are plenty of helmets that have gone through vigorous safety testing to ensure the quality, so look out for any accreditations that have been presented. This will give you a better idea that you have a product that will properly protect your head from getting injured – which is the whole point of a helmet in the first place!

Cool Features

There are other features of cool motorcycle helmets beyond the style. For example, many of the helmets we have discussed have visors that are scratch-proof, glare, and fog-resistant. This helps to enhance your visibility levels when you are out on the open road, as well as looking cool when the light shines off them.

There are also helmets that offer a Bluetooth connection, so you can communicate with others and hook up an audio connection. Ultimately, the features that are most important to you vary from person to person, so you should look closely at what is being offered. You don’t only want to focus on the style alone. There needs to be some substance to make it worthwhile.

Comfort

You need your motorcycle helmet to be comfortable in order to have the maximum coolness effect. Otherwise, you are just going to look uncomfortable while wearing it! So, we have tried to choose helmets that offer good internal comfort through padding and moisture-wicking technology.

If you have to keep taking your helmet off for adjustment, all the coolness in the world is not going to lessen that irritation. Also, we have often looked for helmets that have a simple fastening to put on and take off again. This way, you don’t have to be fiddling around with buckles and belts too much, and you can concentrate on looking your best!

Recent Development

Motorcycle helmet technology is developing all the time, so we have tried to choose helmets that don’t date from too far back in time. Not only is this important in terms of safety, but graphics are always improving all the time as well. Innovative technology features highly in many of the helmets on our list. Even the ones that look a little more retro and vintage generally have the kind of features that put them right into the 21st century.

Different Sizes and Styles

Before you choose your helmet, you need to check all the dimensions carefully to ensure that it fits your head well. We have tried to select helmets that provide a vast array of sizing options. It is worth double-checking to make sure that you get your measurements right as you don’t want to have to go through the time and effort of sending it back to get a replacement if this can be avoided. Some of the helmets that we have chosen also offer different styles and color choices, giving you the maximum freedom to choose the motorcycle helmet design that perfectly suits your personality.

Varying Types

There are plenty of different types of the helmet out there including full face, open face, and half helmet, as well as those that are specifically made for sports like motocross. We have tried to give a wide scope of choice as we know that different people prefer different types of helmet.

All of them have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Cool full-face motorcycle helmets are certainly safer if you get into an accident as they offer more complete protection. However, other people like the look and feel of an open-face helmet. If you are not sure, it is worth trying different styles out until you settle on the one that is right for you.

Conclusion:

So we have presented 9 of the best helmets in red for you. Thanks and see you again at German Helmets.
