Shoei RF-1200 Mystify Red/Black

I bought this helmet the day I picked up the 959. I love this helmet. And I think it looks good with the red 959. I got the photochromatic shield for it also. It's really cool how it darkens as it's exposed to sun and clears back up when there isn't sun. For bright sun you definitely also need sunglasses. But I'm really enjoying it so far:
Shoei CWR-1 Transitions Pinlock-Ready Face Shield - RevZilla

I attached a bunch of pictures of the helmet. I can post some pictures of the shield darkening if people are curious.

On the street I use a Suomy SpecR Gambler which I love... For racing CCS I use a Shoei RF, only because I needed a lid with a newer born on date.. The shoei lid IMHO sucks ass... it is loud!! even with ear plugs on.

Good info to know. I was looking for a "transition" Pinlock Lens Insert but it does not seem to be available. That's why I have the outside Pro-Shade on my Corsair. However, I have since tried-on the AGV K5 and it's just as comfortable as my Arai and it has an interior sun shield that's great for street riding. To my surprise, it feels as light or lighter than my Corsair V and looks better also. I can't comment on its sound suppression yet but suspect it will be much quieter than my Corsair.

Need to get one of those photochromatic shields for my Suomy apex so I don't have to change the visor between night and day riding.

I agree but as Avigil mentioned it's still not the best solution until those photochromatic shields goes from totally clear to very dark. IMHO, if cost is not an issue, it's best to have one helmet for the street which has a built-in dark retractable screen (among other road worthy features) and another helmet for the track. Changing shields can be a PITA and can also be a safety issue if you're caught riding with the wrong shield because you did not carry the opposite shade.

Probably need to at some point. It's a PITA to change out the visor. Probably another Suomy since it's the only one that fits my oddly shaped head.
