 Shoei RF-1100 Helmet - Solid (2XL Only)
Shoei RF-1100 Helmet - Solid (2XL Only)
Shoei RF-1100 Helmet - Solid Colors SHOEI is proud to introduce the all-new RF-1100 Helmet, which is built on the strongest pedigree in the motorcycle helmet business. The Shoei RF-1000 has enjoyed great success since its 2003 inception, but that didnt stop SHOEIs world-class development team from throwing out the molds to build a brand-new helmet from scratch. Combining dealer and customer requests with advanced technology, modern testing practices, and fifty years of helmet-building experience, SHOEI delivers the finest sport-touring helmet that money can buy. The all-new, groundbreaking Shoei RF-1100 - where aggressive styling meets SHOEIs unrivaled attention to detail, and the evolution of perfection is once again met. AIM+ Shell Construction Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and professional riders feedback High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient 5 Shell Sizes and six EPS liner configurations present increased fit options that comfortably fit most head sizes A third generation Tail Fin, integrated into the bottom rear beading in combination with the Shell-Integrated Spoiler, allows smooth airflow that reduces drag and lift CW-1 Face Shield The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self-Adjusting) Base Plate System Q.R.S.A. base plate allows for tool-less face shield removal and installation. Every time the shield is lowered, the spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly, ensuring a wind and waterproof seal between shield and helmet Variable Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Top outlet vent is separate from the Shell- Integrated Spoiler, allowing it to be positioned for optimum flow-through ventilation Four rear outlet vents allow for adjustment of airflow based on riding position Enlarged lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation The rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain included Interior System The entire interior lining (cheek pads, crown liner and chin strap covers) is easily removed to allow cleaning Each component of the inner liner is ergonomically designed to offer the ultimate in safety, fit and comfort Eyeglass compatible Tech Specs 5 shell sizes Weight 3.54 Pounds / 1604grams (based on size medium / solid color) DOT and Snell M2010 approved Need help with sizing Check out our sizing video or read our Shoei Size Chart for more help.

some decades back i got to find out just how good a helmet can be, the shoei brand saved me.
but i like this bucket, fit is spot on, i just go for the plane jane color. this winter i need to try the pin shield.
i have great field of vision and this one does not impead at any point in my view.
but the visor step and lock down works great at keeping the cold air out (i do ride at night when it gets below freezing).
i try to keep out of the rain, but have been caught out in it and no leakage at the visor.
a bit higher on the sound thin i like, but that is do to nerve damage in my ears (ringing) so i plug up and all is good.
bad: the vent covers like to fall off to easy.
.
Yes, I recommend this product.

AXO Air Cage Armored Shirt AXO's best value in upper body full coverage safety. The Air Cage uses a specially designed overlapping PU molded back plate system that leaves no open gaps even when fully flexed. Securely pinned to a open foam base the back PU, chest plates, biceps and lower arm areas cover all first impact areas of the upper body. A built in kidney belt holds the lower body in check and reduces the amount of movement of the Air Cage on the waist area. The forearms and shoulder cups can be held in place with the stretch Velcro straps. A center zip aids in putting on the Air Cage while the stretch mesh under body base conforms to the natural movement and shape of the body.

have not worn much (work), but fits great,
get one size larger then normal for you i am 5foot 10 at 200 pounds and the EX is a great fit.
using this for under on the street can never have too much protection on.
but if i have to have a get off, this will keep most if not all harm at bay.
only thing i see "bad" so far is the front zipper should drop lower "ie" closer to the belt area. and the two front belt "grabbers" appear to be not so great but will see as time go by. hope they hold up to years.
worth the price.
Yes, I recommend this product.
