This was the first helmet I bought. I really liked the comfort level of it, but the airflow was a little lacking in it. That could probably be attributed to the fact that I ride a sport bike though, and this was designed for upright riding. It would probably flow air a lot better on a cruiser, but I wouldn't know.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this for my RF-1100. I love how it looks, and it does a great job at blocking out glare from sunlight and headlights, but it's not as dark as the smoke shield so I'm very comfortable using this shield at night. It gets 4 starts from me because of the price, and the fact that mirror shields tend to scratch pretty easily. If it were more durable or cheaper it would be a 5 star easily.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Shoei RF-1100 Merciless Helmet The Shoei RF-1100 Merciless Helmet is one of the more popular graphics in the Shoei RF-1100 line.

Combining dealer and customer requests with advanced technology and modern testing practices, Shoei's world-class development team threw out the molds to build a brand-new helmet from scratch. SHOEI is pleased to deliver the finest sport-touring helmet that money can buy.

I got this helmet in the matte white, and it's amazing! The graphic is top notch and very durable, and of course Shoei's excellent quality shows through in every feature. It is extremely comfortable, with average wind noise. The air flow is ridiculous with all the vents open! I am in love with this helmet!
Yes, I recommend this product.
