Our Two Cents
The RF-1100 Glacier helmet from Shoei it new for the fall of 2012; it has aggressive lines with a made-for-speed look. There is a greater degree of visibility with this helmet; the CW-1 shield is both taller and wider than the CX-IV it replaces. The variable ventilation system has three intake and six exhaust vents, allowing riders to adjust the airflow to whatever condition they’re riding in while keeping noise to a minimum. Shoei makes high quality helmets; this one is no exception. The graphics on the Glacier are simple and very nice looking and the finish is well done.
