Shoei's RF line has a rich heritage, dating back nearly four decades. Always focused on innovation, Shoei released the 1400 model in 2021. This road riding helmet was tested in Shoei's wind tunnel facility, where aerodynamics and ventilation were examined and refined. Six air intake and four exhaust vents are designed to keep your head cool, while upward lift and drag were reduced in comparison to its predecessor, the RF-1200.
A new, airtight window beading offers a wind and waterproof seal of the shield. A clear view and protection against the sun's damaging UV rays is also provided by the CWR-F2 shield, and the release button is located in the center of the helmet for a smooth lift.
Multiple layers of fiberglass, along with a dual-layer, multi-density EPS liner are engineered to deliver protection during impact, and the exclusive Max-Dry interior material absorbs and dispels sweat two times faster than conventional nylon interiors. The liner is also removeable and washable. Weighing 3 pounds 10 ounces, this Snell M2020D and DOT approved helmet is available in multiple colors and graphics.
The name SHOEI has long been synonymous with "premium" in the motorcycle helmet market-a credential that hundreds of loyal men and women in our Japan factories wear with great pride. The evolution and production of our world-class helmet line is a meticulous process that combines the very latest in technology with consumer feedback, modern testing practices, advanced materials, and 60 years of helmet building experience. Just like the very first SHOEI helmet built by our founder back in 1959, every SHOEI today is still handmade in Japan utilizing a sophisticated process that involves over 50 people for each and every helmet.

SHOEI prides itself in building the very best helmets that our state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies will allow, but we also maintain the core belief that good old fashioned field research yields the highest performing, most functional helmets producible. SHOEI helmets are the result of countless hours of conceptualization and R&D, but equally as important is the time spent testing with the most hardcore critics of them all-our professional racing team. From our MotoGP race team service to world-class racers like Marc Marquez and Josh Grant, our helmets are put through the ringer, resulting in the fine-tuned masterpieces that await you on this website.
