 Shoei RF-1100 Pious Helmet
Shoei RF-1100 Pious Helmet
Shoei RF-1100 Pious Helmet The Shoei RF-1100 Pious Helmet is one of our favorite graphics in the RF-1100 line here at RevZilla. The cross and fleur-de-lis pattern with hints of red is crisp and striking against the black background. The Shoei RF-1100 is the next generation of helmet, building on the success and popularity of the RF-1000. Combining customer and dealer requests with advanced technology, modern testing practices, and 50 years of helmet-building experience the world-class designers at Shoei have molded a brand new helmet from scratch. Their attention to detail and aggressive styling makes this helmet the next step in the evolution of perfection. Tech Specs 5 shell sizes Weight 3.54 Pounds / 1604grams (based on size medium / solid color) DOT and Snell M2010 approved 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 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 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 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 Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I've been wearing this helmet since mid January so about seven months now. I've owned many brands and models over the years and this is by far my favorite. It's extremely well balanced and aerodynamic. It's easy to forget you're wearing it on long rides and your head doesn't get jerked around in high winds or at high speeds. The venting is amazing! I live in Nevada and this helmet does great in high heat. If you're looking for a new lid a RF1100 is a great way to go.
Rides: 2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000
Yes, I recommend this product.
