This is my first Shoei helmet before this i had a Icon Alliance, Bell Revolver and a Nexx XR1R Carbon.
The Nexx was my usual helmet because of its looks, light weight and airflow (i live in South Fl) great helmet overall but the Nexx only has 3 shell sizes (if i am not mistaken) and I am a xs. SO what happens when your in that far end of the spectrum is the shell size maybe a small and they just use extra padding to make it a xs, same thing with the bigger sizes they will either use extra or less padding between the L and XL sizes.
For people like me it creates a "bobble head" look as the helmet looks disproportionate from the rest of my body even with full riding gear, (jacket gloves etc.) With the RF1200 they have 4 shell sizes so the xs helmet uses a xs shell = perfection. Plus the helmet is great when it comes to airflow & comfort, the visor is really nice as it has a bunch of detentes. Something the Nexx is a bit missing and the once that it does have are very loose. Head checks at highway speeds are great with the RF1200 no buffering or anything. There is a little wind noise mostly when doing head checks but its not that big a deal to me as there is always noise from the road, the bike's engine etc. 1 thing i find odd is the chin strap retainer snap, its a bit to high i think as it sometimes is hard to find/snap in once you strap the helmet in. I feel like it should be a bit lower or its just something i need to get used to.
The paint/graphics on the Phantasm helmet is really awesome, it has a matte finish with these subtle 3D ish graphics on it that really show up in sun light.
Overall its the best helmet i think i have thus far.

Best Shield ever, changes to light conditions, no need for sunglasses unless you want to protect your eye when you lift the shield up for some air flow at low speeds on hot days.
Yes, I recommend this product.
