 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.

My size XL Shoei Qwest helmet has gradually become a little too loose in fit over the past 3 years so I decided to replace it with an RF1100. I bought the RF1100 in a size large to better fit my head over the long run (apparently all helmets gradually get looser over time).
The size L RF1100 is slightly lighter than my Qwest and the shell looks a little smaller than the XL. I do notice a little more wind noise with the RF1100 than with the Qwest, however the ventilation is also noticeably better in the RF1100.
The exhaust vents on the RF1100 are stiff and difficult to slide open. I could not open them while riding with a glove on. Maybe they will get easier to open with more use?
The fit of the RF1100 seems to fit my more oval head better than the Qwest as well.
One bonus for me is that the Qwest and the RF1100 both use the same CW-1 face shield so I can use my old tinted and pin lock shields on my new helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Wolfman Peak tail bag is a convenient size and shape for it's intended purpose. The materials and workmanship look good. My major criticism is that the four tie-down straps are attached near the top of the sidewalls of the bag. The sidewalls are somewhat flexible so if you try to cinch the bag down tight (to put tension on the metal hooks that fasten to your bike) the sidewalls will deform and partially collapse. If the sidewalls collapse you lose the tension needed to hold the metal hooks in place on your bike. Even if you don't use the metal hooks and just cinch the straps together under the tail of your bike (using the supplied strap extensions) you can only tighten the straps a moderate amount before the sidewalls deform.
Design Suggestion: Sew the four attachment tie-down straps at the bottom of the sidewall to eliminate the problem. Adding elasticated tie down straps would help with maintaining tension so the hooks don't come loose.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Steady predictable grip, better that the Bridgestone Battlewings they replaced. Not much use off road, but I wasn't expecting them to.

I have about 7000 miles on these gloves and they still look and feel great. They have molded into a perfect riding position and have not stretched or deformed. With the heated grips and handguards on my R1200GS these are true 3-season gloves for the NE part of the country. I can't judge the airflow really well because of the handguards but when holding the glove out in the airstream they do seem to flow air very well through the perforations between the fingers. I like them well enough that I am buying as a back up pair to use when the other pair gets soaked in the rain. I followed the size up recommendation and the XL fits me snugly so I feel I have excellent feel and control.

I bought a pinlock shield and a clear pinlock lens for night time and a dark smoke lens for sunny days for my XL Shoei Qwest. The lens covers almost the entire opening (~95%) of the helmet and there are only very small areas at the sides that aren't covered. It was important to me to get a tinted lens that covered the entire field of vision so that no distracting sunlight would penetrate the helmet around the lens and this lens works very well with my Shoei Qwest to do that. There has been absolutely no fogging even riding in 33 degree F weather so the visibility is great.

I bought this product for those occasions when you forget to unplug your Gerbing gear before getting off the bike and end up tripping on the wire or yanking it out of the socket. This acts as a shock cord which will flex even if you forget to unplug.
