New for this year is a pinlock shield system with what Shoei calls the best anti-fog system available. As Shoei explains it, the shield acts as dual-plane glass, in that the shield has two layers of material with an air-bubble seal. As well, Shoei is coming out with a new Transitions shield design, which will transform from completely clear to almost a dark tint in about two minutes.

Shoei boasts that the EPS liner in the RF-1200 contributed to the small size of the helmet. Shoei says it was able to reduce the size of the liner without sacrificing any of the impact-absorbing performance.
