Shoei RF-1000 Quick Review
Shoei’s superb-looking RF-1000 is, literally, function dictating form; the shell is actually more compact than any other full-face helmet, and offers excellent aerodynamics. I prefer a Shoei because, when tucked into a racing crouch, the front of the helmet shell does not block my eye line and, at three pounds, six ounces, the RF-1000 is one of the lightest helmets available.
In the right/wrong circumstances, a motorcycle helmet can be the gift of life. No matter what kind of motorcycle riding you prefer, we believe a helmet is an indispensable piece of your riding ensemble.
Low speed riding can be used by cruisers to justify a less-protective helmet that focuses on a lifestyle appearance. The minimalist Bell Drifter retains its DOT approval, and has detail features we appreciate—a rear goggle strap stay, optional ear pads for cold weather riding, and great styling.
