Had been wearing the RF-1100 for a while and when the temperature started to drop the lens started to fog up. I did all the research like everyone else and decided to drop a few more bills on this helmet and buy the pinlock shield and lens.
What a difference it made! I even tried to fog it up and couldn’t. I recommend this system to anyone that is having a fog problem.

When I first receviced my RF-1100 I wore it for a couple of weeks allowing it time to break in, but I was still riding around feeling like a kissing fish with my lips pushed out by the cheek pads. Spent the money and got the smaller 31mm cheek pads and it made all the differance in the comfort of the helmet.
I just think that shoei should have a rebate on these if you send the stock ones back to them.

Needed a smoke lens for my RF1100. This one was installed in less then 30 seconds and works great. It is dark, so no riding in at night with it.

I have been looking for a higher end helmet for a while, and had come down to buying either a Arai or Shoei. I ended up springing for the Shoei RF1100. As soon as I received it I put it on and took it for a test drive around the neighborhood. Loved the helmet and could not wait to wear it on my ride to work the next morning. Next morning was 56 degrees outside and the helmet starting fogging up on me, but I noticed that the cheek pads were very tight. I gave them a week to break in and they did not get any better. So like others that have reviewed this helmet I had to buy the smaller cheek pads ($37) from here at Revzilla. The new cheek pads feel great and my ride back and forth to work is more enjoyable. But there was still a fogging issue. I have now ordered a Pinlock lens and insert ($79) from Revzilla. I hope that this fixes the fogging isssue.
I really like the helmet, it cuts throught he air so much better then my HJC-IS33 and I dont have a bobble head going down the interstate. It has great air flow, opened all vents when it was 95 degrees out and head felt great. Helmet is quit when vents are closed but when all are opened traveling a highway speed it does create some noise about like my HJC did with the vents closed.
I do recommend this helmet and would buy again if I had to do it over. I just think the chin pads sould have been a free exchange with Shoei.

I needed a fall and spring glove. I measured my hand and it is 8.5 inches around the knuckles. I originaly ordered a size meduim and they were a little tight and my thumbs did not have great range of motion for the controls. Sent them back and exchanged them for size large. They fit great and I feel as though they have great protecton. As always RevZilla ships fast even on the exchange.

I Needed a pant that was easy to get on and off over my work clothes. The full leg zippers are of high quality and easy to zip without getting hung on the fabric. This is a great overpant.
I wear 34x34 pants and ordered Size Large Long and when I received them they were to long. Did the return on line and in no time the were exchanged out for Size Large regular. They fit snug (Not Tight) in the waist for me with a pair of jeans under them. I have worn them on a few cool mornings with temps in 40's and I did not feel any wind cutting throu them.
Yes, I recommend this product.
