Shoei RF-1100 - March 18, 2010, 08:28 PM

Just got in the new Sport/Touring helmet that replaced the RF1000.

Along with the lid I also purchased the CW-1 Pinlock shield. A great shield IMHO with inserts to choose from dark to amber. Works great that keeps your shield fog free. Well worth the money...for any helmet.

1st impressions...

Aerodynamic like my X-11. Vents well for only having a chin intake and 2 top intakes. 4 exhaust vents out back and a molded spoiler that works. You can feel it begin working around the same speed as the X-11, for me around 20-25mph. fully removable liner setup similar to the X-11.

The eyeports are really wider, very nice. A nice replacement that almost rivals the old (now with the X-12 debut) X-11. Only item missing imho is a forehead vent that I am accustomed to having.

These are discounted deeply if you look hard enough.

Good review, thanks. Does it feel lighter than the RF-1000?

The x-12 is heavy and I do not like it nearly as much as the x-11

Sadly, the RF1100 gives me an instant headache so I'll need to buy another RF1k instead. I was looking forward to it too.

Have you noticed more ear room at all?

Just compared the 2 earlier and to me it seems about the same weight as my X-11.

The ear areas are roomier than my X-11 (only worn the RF1000 for a short ride) and for those that wear glasses, has nice cutouts for your stems to slide into and hook behind your ears.

The pinlock shield went on B/O so I may just pick up the half tint since I like it for the X-11.
