A helmet line that goes back to the early eighties, the RF is the helmet that helped build Shoei’s reputation. The RF-1100 was one of the best all-around street bike helmets and now its successor the Shoei RF-1200 enters the market to take its place. Easily capable of sport riding, touring and commuting, the RF-1200 embodies the saying solidly built. From the liner to the air vents to the click of the face shield locking, this is a helmet that defines quality.
Shoei’s name means that as a company they are naturally expected to make a great touring helmet and thankfully, the Qwest can handle this pressure. Shaped by what Shoei claims to be countless hours in their very own wind tunnel, important details like shell design and foam placement have been refined to cancel out noise and reduce drag and lift. The ventilation system is also wind tunnel tested and this has resulted in large upper intakes and rear exhaust vents that maximize the Venturi effect. The proven ORSA shield carries over from other helmet models like the X-Twelve and when combined with Shoei’s typical knack for quality, the Qwest becomes a very, competent touring helmet.
The Speed and Strength® SS1600 Cruise Missile™ full face motorcycle helmet comes lined with a removable and washable Cool-Core® moisture wicking liner and is built with an A.T.P.A.™ Advanced Thermo-Poly Alloy shell that meets or exceeds DOT and ECE 22-05 standards. The 1550 gram motorcycle helmet contains a Lockdown™ shield security system and an Air Strike™ direct course ventilation system providing proper airflow circulation. A DVD™ Drop Visor Design is included for sun protection and an All Clear!™ optically correct, anti-scratch, anti-fog and UV resistant clear face shield. Tinted shields are sold separately and are for daytime use only.
The shell shape is both stable at speed and quiet while inside comfort is helped with 3D shaped padding that is plush and easily customizable and replaceable. For the rider limited to one helmet, the RF-1200 wins out with excellent safety, comfort and style. And to match almost any type of bike, the RF is available in a huge number of solid colors and graphics.
Easily one of Bell’s most anticipated helmets, the MX-9 Adventure sees Bell finally enter the ADV segment and they’ve created a very appealing first time effort. Based closely on the new MX-9, you get the same aggressive looking polycarbonate shell and venting system. However, naturally Bell has created a new, more aerodynamic visor and a large flip up face shield to go with it. Equally capable on the street or dirt, you get a design that likes fast riding on both surfaces. The colorways are all extremely sharp looking but this is overshadowed by the price point which is sub $200. Definitely not a bad thing.
