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.

These features combined with a new, modern design create the new standard for open face helmets.
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.
Comment: 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.
Shoei open face helmet review
Comment: 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.
Does this helmet have a face shield and visor, the helmet is the Shoei RJ Platinum R?

Best Answer:I use a generic flat plastic face shield that you can find easily. It snaps on to the three snaps on the helmet. I have a tinted one for day and a clear one for night. They interchange in a couple of minutes and I keep the one I'm not using in the saddlebags. It has a visor that came with the helmet, but it doesn't work with the face shield so I never use it.
It does have a visor but no face shield. At least as it came to me. I don't know if one might be available as it was not something I wanted and did not inquire. I will say that it is the best open face helmet I've ever owned. I'm very pleased with it!
