Just got my Shoei Rf-1000

Yesterday I finally got my new helmet. It's a new model called the Joust but anyways I'm glad I got it. The first helmet I had was the Skull Icon helmet. That thing is the biggest peice of crap I have ever owned. I think it looks cool but besides that is defintally sucks. Just thought I would share that with everyone.

Congrats!

So how does it feel compared to the Skull? Is it more or less quiet? Better wind resistence? Lighter or heaver?

It's defintally lighter and there's more pads I geuss you could say in the check area and it's not as loud as the skull helmet.

Re: Just got my Shoei Rf-1000

I made a similar mistake in getting a new helmet. Went with a Icon Holligan liked the fit in the store but didn't like the helmet when riding. A month later I went out and got the Shoei Joust and have been in love with it. Should have know better by now. This is mine.

Re: Just got my Shoei Rf-1000

I'm on my second helmet of the year... I got the Shoei TZ-R because I couldn't afford the RF1000 after crashing in my HJC AC-12 Carbon (it was 2 weeks old). No more HJC - Shoei all the way!

Back-to-back testing w/ my buddy's RF1000: there's little difference. He gets slightly better venting but had slightly more wind noise.

Re: Just got my Shoei Rf-1000

had my rf-1000 for almost 3yrs. great helmet until it fell off the bike from vibration recently while i had the bike running and cracked the air foil. The helmet now whistles at higher speeds. should get a replacement air foil.
