Size Guide

Shoei's latest flagship helmet, the RF-1400, combines top-notch quality, sleek design, and exceptional comfort and safety. Since its debut in 1984, the RF series has been a favorite in the motorcycle community. Decades of research and development have led to improvements in safety, design, comfort, noise reduction, and overall quality, all of which Shoei is known for.

Design Concept The RF-1400's aerodynamics and ventilation were fine-tuned through wind tunnel tests, resulting in a 4% reduction in drag and a 6% reduction in lift compared to the RF-1200. This compact, aerodynamic shell maximizes ventilation and is the lightest SNELL-approved full-face helmet in Shoei's lineup. Despite being lightweight, it doesn't compromise on features like wind noise reduction, thanks to Shoei's new noise reduction technology.

Quietness The shell's shape, designed in a wind tunnel, provides a quieter ride. The new CWR-F2 shield system, with Vortex Generator technology, reduces wind turbulence. An airtight window beading system ensures a windproof and waterproof seal. The RF-1400 also features larger cheek pads and removable ear pads to minimize wind noise.

Shell and EPS Liner Construction Shoei's proprietary technology combines interwoven layers of fiberglass and lightweight organic fibers to create a strong, elastic shell that meets SNELL M2020 and DOT ratings. The dual-layer, multi-density EPS foam liner enhances impact absorption and allows unrestricted airflow through the helmet. The precise placement of the EPS material contributes to the RF-1400's compact, lightweight design.

Shield System The RF-1400 features the new CWR-F2 base plate system for quick and smooth shield changes. The redesigned baseplate gear includes a "first position" shield opening feature for improved venting and defogging. A locking mechanism distributes shield forces evenly, enhancing security. The 3D injection-molded CWR-F2 shield provides a distortion-free view and protects against 99% of UV rays. The included Pinlock EVO lens eliminates fog and improves lateral visibility.

Interior The RF-1400's interior is fully removable, washable, replaceable, and adjustable, made from Max-Dry materials that absorb sweat twice as fast as traditional nylon. The soft, durable cheek pad fabric provides a comfortable fit, and the multi-layered material enhances stabilization and reduces noise. Optional interior components are available in different sizes for a customized fit.

Ventilation Performance The RF-1400's ventilation system features three channels and six air entryways for optimal airflow. The center/forehead vent has an additional air hole compared to the previous model, and the larger side vents increase air intake. The three-position lower vent shutter is easy to operate with gloves on, and the enlarged exhaust vent with four outlets expels hot air while bringing in cool air.

Summary Shoei's RF-1400 is a superb helmet that offers a perfect blend of timeless design, aerodynamic performance, ventilation, quietness, ease of use, comfort, and high-quality materials and manufacturing. This latest addition to the RF series sets a new standard in the market.
