THE EVOLUTION OF PERFECTION

The Evolution of Perfection is a fitting tagline for the longest-standing, most decorated full-face helmet model in the SHOEI lineup, the RF. The process of improving is a constant evolution, and with a world-class team of designers and engineers leading the charge, we pushed our resources and technologies to the brink, utilizing our state-of-the-art wind tunnel facility, extensive array of proprietary materials, and the industry’s most stringent quality assurance practices to develop the all-new RF-1400. SHOEI’s lightest and most compact SNELL-approved full-face helmet model, the RF-1400 has evolved the pursuit of perfection to the next level.

Learn More
  • Evolved design, functionality and performance over its predecessor
  • Wind tunnel-tested and refined aerodynamics and ventilation performance
  • Compact, aerodynamic shell shape with integrated spoiler
  • SHOEI’s lightest SNELL-approved full-face helmet model
  • All-new shield and base plate system for optimized visibility and performance
  • Noise-reduction technology reduces unwanted wind and road noise

AERODYNAMICS

Developed and refined in SHOEI’s state-of-the-art, in-house wind tunnel facility from the very beginning stages of life, the RF-1400 boasts impressive improvements in aerodynamic performance, including a 6% reduction in lift and a 4% reduction in drag (as compared to the RF-1200). Optimal shell aerodynamics not only improves the helmet’s ability to cut through air, it also contributes to a welcomed reduction in wind noise without blocking the road’s valuable informative sounds.

Learn More
  • Developed and refined in SHOEI’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel facility
  • Compact, aerodynamic shell shape with integrated spoiler
  • Strategically-shaped air intake and exhaust vents help streamline the overall profile
  • Boasts impressive improvements in aerodynamic performance and reduces the forces placed on a rider’s head
  • Lift reduction (upward lift forces): -6%*
  • Drag reduction (forward drag forces): -4%*

* Reference value comparison measured using SHOEI’s in-house wind tunnel testing facilities (RF-1400 vs. RF-1200).

ADVANCED NOISE REDUCTION

 

  • Optimal shell aerodynamics reduce wind noise around the helmet
  • Vortex Generators on the sides of the shield reduce wind turbulence
  • All-new, airtight window beading provides wind/waterproof seal
  • New, voluminous cheek pads and removable ear pads further restrain wind noise inside the helmet
  • The RF-1400 provides an incredibly quiet riding experience without blocking the road’s informative sounds

VENTILATION PERFORMANCE

Utilizing SHOEI’s in-house wind tunnel to help reveal the optimal balance between airflow and silence, SHOEI designers relocated the center/forehead vent, and also equipped it with an additional air intake hole, to help increase the volume of cooling air entering the helmet. Additionally, a new, enlarged exhaust outlet vent helps take better advantage of negative pressure suction at the rear of the helmet, yielding improved hot-air expulsion.

  • Wind tunnel-optimized to provide the perfect balance between airflow and silence
  • Relocated center/forehead vent is equipped with an additional air intake hole for greater airflow into the helmet
  • Upper air intake holes have been enlarged for optimal performance
  • New, enlarged exhaust outlet vent for improved hot-air expulsion
  • Large 3-position lower vent shutter for ease of use with riding gloves
  • Features six (6) air intake vents and four (4) exhaust outlets

SHIELD SYSTEM

The all-new CWR-F2 shield system features improved visibility, functionality, and performance over its predecessor. The 2D “flat” outside surface combined with 3D technology inside offers an aggressive look with optimized visibility for a more natural view, Vortex Generators on the sides of the shield improve aerodynamics and reduce wind noise, and an all-new center locking mechanism helps to evenly distribute shield forces across both spring-loaded base plates.
