Shoei RF-1100 full-face helmet buyers are eligible to receive a bonus shield until May 31, thanks to a new promotion from Shoei and Helmet House.

The Shoei Factory Authorized RF-1100 Free Shield Promotion, running from April 12 through May 31, enables any U.S. resident purchasing a 2012 RF-1100 full-face helmet from a U.S.-based dealer or e-tailer to receive their choice of one of four bonus accessory face shields with proof of purchase.

RF-1100 buyers need to fill out the promotion form available from authorized Shoei Helmet dealers and online retailers in the United States and mail it in with proof of purchase to receive their choice of a clear, light smoke, mellow smoke or dark smoke tinted accessory face shield directly from Shoei and Helmet House.

“Dealer and consumer response to this promotion has been very strong," said Shoei president Hiro Mizushima.

Shoei’s RF-1100 helmet is targeted at performance street and sport-touring riders. For 2012, the RF-1100 is available in nine different graphics along with solid, metallic and matte color ways. The RF-1100, according to Shoei, offers a highly advanced variable ventilation system with enlarged venting all fully developed and engineered in Shoei’s on-site wind tunnels; a shell-integrated rear spoiler made from Shoei’s exclusive shell forming technology; an enlarged CW-1 shield over a larger eye port in concert with Shoei’s Quick Release Self Adjusting Base Plate System (QRSA) to keep the face shield in constant adjustment against the eye port’s window beading for a secure, noise-free seal. The RF-1100 comes in five shell sizes across its size range of XXS to XXL.

Dealers may receive full details on this RF-1100 promotion directly from Helmet House at, or by contacting their Helmet House account representative or by calling 1-800-421-7247. Quantities are limited.

“ Dealers have very little to do, just provide the needed form to RF-1100 buyers at time of purchase, Shoei and Helmet House will take care of the rest. Consumers also have little to do to qualify, just fill out the one-page form with proof of purchase of a 2012 RF-1100, and mail both these items in to receive their free face shield, which has an MSRP of over $50,” said Gary Ramlow, managing director of the Shoei business at Helmet House.
