Unrivaled in every feature category, there's not another helmet on the market that truly embodies motorcycling quite like the RF-1100. Building helmets isn't just a means to an end for the people at Shoei, it's a passion that has to be fulfilled daily, which is why Shoei stopped at no end while evolving the RF-1100 into their best seller. Combining customer and dealer requests with state-of-the-art technology and everything learned over 50 years of premium helmet development has yielded the finest sport-touring full-face that money can buy. The groundbreaking RF-1100 - where aggressive styling meets Shoei's unrivaled attention to detail. The Evolution of Perfection never ends.
Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self-Adjusting) base plate system: Includes a locking mechanism that allows you to do just that in a snap - no tools, no hassle, no problems! The QRSA maintains its predecessor's easy-to-use features - like the simple shield release and attachment, and shield preset lever - but offers a significant advantage. Shoei's patented new spring-loaded technology featured in the QRSA eliminates the need to adjust base plates for proper sealing. Every time the shield is lowered, the spring-loaded base plates pull the shield back to contact the window beading evenly, ensuring a wind and waterproof seal.
CW-1 shield: The all-new CW-1 shield is both wider and taller than the CX-IV that it replaces. In addition, the CW-1 shield protects Shoei riders from 99% of the sun's damaging UVA and UVB rays, and the three-dimensional injection-molding process ensures distortion free vision. Another advantage of the CW-1 shield is its ability to work in conjunction with Shoei's optional Pinlock system to deliver fog-free vision in even the most challenging conditions. The new CW-1 Pinlock lens is larger, and offers fog-free viewing to the very top of the helmet's larger eye port.
AIM+ Shell Construction (Snell M2010-approved): Shoei's proprietary AIM+ technology combines fiberglass with organic fibers that are so strong they can only be cut with a laser. The end result is a stronger, lighter shell that will absorb and distribute the force of an impact safely and efficiently.
5 shell sizes: Shoei offers an industry-leading five shell sizes in the new RF-1100 to ensure a custom fit for heads between the sizes of XXS - XXL.
Shell-integrated spoiler: This new technology has allowed Shoei to incorporate the aerodynamic advantages of a spoiler into the shell of the helmet, while maintaining consistent shell thickness to guarantee proper strength and weight. This shell-integrated spoiler works to reduce lift during high-speed riding, just like the spoiler on a sports car.
Variable Ventilation System: The RF-1100's new shell features three (3) intake and six (6) exhaust vents in total. Wind tunnel testing revealed that the optimal location for exhaust vents is actually much higher on the rear portion of the helmet's shell than originally thought. Better ventilation and aerodynamic performance is achieved by separating the spoiler and exhaust vents. The exhaust vent holes have been relocated to take better advantage of negative pressure suction, dramatically improving exhaust ventilation.
Dual-layer EPS liner: Dual-layer liner yields enhanced impact absorption by adjusting thickness and density in key areas. Inner liner features air channels for efficient cooling. Impact-absorbing EPS liner throughout the entire chin bar.
Interior system: Equipped with a fully removable, washable, and replaceable 3D center pad and multi-layer cheek pads. The RF-1100's 3D center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider's head. This 3D fitment allows Shoei to provide a helmet with an extremely comfortable fit, while maintaining the firm hold that is necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding. The RF-1100's multi-layer cheek pads are available in six different thicknesses to allow riders to customize the fit of their new helmet. In addition, the liner features eyeglass channels and an integrated neck pad.
Chin curtain: Can be inserted into the lower edge of the chin bar to reduce wind turbulence and noise.
Breath guard: Can be inserted into the upper edge of the chin bar to help reduce fogging by diverted exhausted breath down out the bottom of the helmet.
Warranty: 5-year warranty from purchase date. 7-year warranty from helmet manufacture date, whichever comes first.
