I normally by the Shoei St. Cruz but since that helmet has been discontinued I elected to go with the RJ and it is great. It still gives me the freedom of open face with just that little bit more protection. I have found the helmet to be comfortable and easy wearing with the same quality as in my other Shoei helmets.
Shoei RJ-Platinum R Helmet.
When you think of word Platinum, you think of the best, and that is what SHOEI has done with the RJ-Platinum R. Shoei has taken a 3/4 open-face helmet and made it the best on the market. >From its contemporary styling, to its improved adjustable fit.

Not your parent’s old lid, the RJ Platinum-R establishes a higher standard for what an open-face helmet should be. Contemporary styling along with an improved and adjustable fit, a fully removable and washable interior, enhanced ventilation performance, and a remarkably quiet riding experience endow the RJ Platinum-R with an elevated level of excellence. Combined with SHOEI’s heritage of fine craftsmanship and benchmark safety technology, you’re left with the world’s premier open-face helmet—the RJ Platinum-R. Since it’s introduction in 1985, the RJ series set the standard by which all open face helmets are measured.

Wrap a tape measure horizontally around your forehead. Select the helmet that is the closest fit to that size. A helmet should fit snug on your head. If it moves while wearing, it is too large. If it is painful to wear, it is too small.

I have owned other Shoei helmets including the Shoei J-Cruise helmet and what I like most is really the fit and comfort. Now I have kind of a big head. I purchased a 2xl and it was still a little tight but overall I would give this helmet 4 stars.
Helmet fits snug and comfortable. As long as you go straight then there is no wind noise but if you turn your head slightly, then the noise kicks in. I usually ride on the country roads where I get up to max speeds of only 45-60mph
My husband loves this helmet. This is not his first Shoei helmet and it won’t be his last. we actually share. I have an odd shaped head and this helmet fits great.
Overall I really love this helmet, it's great quality and its comfortable. It fit well. I just love the thing. ow i will say that I wished that the sun visor was a little lower because at certain part of the day it can be useless because of how high it sits up. Other than that I love the airflow the helmet provides. I certainly recommend this helmet.
I really liked this helmet and it fit well. I did try to find a snap visor for it and was unable to, other than that the helmet is a great buy.
I would definitely recommend this helmet to family and friends. I love Shoei helmets anyways but this one fits perfect and is really comfortable. I really like that it is lightweight. I have nothing but good things to say about this helmet. Great buy.
This helmet fits very well over my fairly large oval head. I love the quality of my Shoei helmet. I have no complaints and would definitely give this helmet 5 stars.
I really like the open face look and feel. I have owned full face helmets in the past when I raced but I went down a few years ago and fractured my collarbone. That’s when I decided it was time to just cruise. Fits nice and snug and I have no wind noise.
This is a winter helmet for me so haven’t had a chance to really wear it yet but when trying it on I found it a bit tight in cheek area but comfort and fit is good otherwise.
I am a fan of Shoei helmets and have a Shoei RF-1100 full face already which saved my life when I went down and skidded about 40 feet. I am hoping that this helmet will do the same. Fit and quality are outstanding as always. I cant wait to try this out on my bike.
This helmet was a great buy. I purchased it back in 2014 and still wear it everyday. I really like the fact that it is a comfortable fit. Thanks Jafrum !
I have always worn Shoei helmets, the fit and finish is great and the upgrades made over the years are very nice. Jafrum handled my order in a timely manner, will order from them again.
At 69yrs old I've had a lot of helmets, mostly SHOEI all open face touring helmets. SHOEI makes the best and every new one is better then the last. Great vents and very comfy !!!!! and the service could not be better . BUY one you wont be sorry.
Disclaimer - I am not qualified to comment on the safety aspects of helmets. If you're really serious about safety, you probably don't want an open face helmet anyway. I'll leave safety to DOT and SNELL, each of which have certified this helmet. This helmet replaces a similar Shoei helmet I have had for 20 years. It has the same high quality and comfort but has some welcome improvements in the areas of ventilation, cheek pads, and shin strap. My hat size is 7 3/4, and the X-Large helmet is very snug, as it should be. My experience on multiple purchases from Jafrum has been positive - the merchandise has been exactly as ordered and has been shipped immediately.
