HJC RPHA 10 Cage Helmet
Good job HJC.
RPHA 10 is a really nice sport riding helmet beyond my expectation. It feels light and fits snug. Graphics & finishing is good quality. I've had Arai, Nolan, AGV, Suomy and a Schubert S1 before . This helmet is a real bargain for the money I paid. My only concern is , it is not so quiet as most people review (Especially when you open the top vents.)

Lightweight with good protection
This helmet is comfortable, lightweight and runs a tiny bit small for a large. It took a little break in time before it fit my large head well.
It comes with a pinlock shield and an insert, and once that was installed, there was no issue with fogging.
I gave mine the roughest test, which was a 130 mph crash. I went down hard but the helmet did it's job and I did not have a concussion. I've just purchased another one to replace the rashed helmet. I've never liked a helmet enough to do that in my 30 years of riding.

This helmet exceeded my expecations!
I recently purchased an HJC RPHA Evoke 10 helmet, to use when racing my Dirt Oval Kart. I purchased this helmet because of the Pin Lock feature that came with it. I had recently researched how to stop a helmet from fogging up and the best suggestion, or proven method, was to use a Pin Lock. I had tried every trick in the book to stop fogging up to this point so figured what the heck. During my first race using this helmet I was truly AMAZED, NO FOG! Not only could I see, but the helmet was so comfortable and the amount of airflow made it so much easier to concentrate on racing. This helmet was exactly what I had hoped for and truly exceeded my expectations.

Quality is amazing for the price
I really like this product and its quality, especially considering the price. It is also very quiet to my surprise.

Excellent Value at Sale prices
I've put about 1,000 miles on my bike since getting the RPHA-10, in 100 degree temps down to 40 degree temps, and think I have a fairly good feel now for its strengths and weaknesses.
Pros: Safety, I have no concerns about protection in the event I need this helmet to do what it was designed to do.
Quality, everything on the helmet feels quality, works well, etc...
Airflow while riding, there's a comfortable amount of air flowing to keep you from arriving drenched in sweat. At winter temps, there's almost too much air, even with the vents all closed up, but a headsock/balaclava takes care of that problem.
Fit against cheeks is super snug, this is probably a safety thing but other helmets I've worn are much more comfortable around your cheeks. I like snug, but this is maybe 1-2 mm too snug.
Airflow while standing, I have to put the visor up when sitting at stop lights, etc... otherwise, my visor fogs up instantly and combined with previous con, things get pretty claustrophobic fast. There is no difference with the plastic guard in or out.
Minor con, the Vent dials. The product info touts the easy to use dials but they are pretty small which makes them hard to find on the fly especially with gloves on. I had to make note of which direction to roll the dial with the helmet off, and then make a mental note of their location, before using them became more intuitive.

Great alternative to Shoei or Arai!
Graphics and finish are excellent, exactly what you'd expect from a "high end" lid.
Fit is good, for comparison I usually wore a Medium in Shoei's and Arai's, and a medium is what I have in the RPHA-10.
Comfort liner is soft, and doesn't irritate my skin anywhere. A big plus for one with irritable skin.
Airflow could be better, and the shield tends to whistle at times.
The anit-fog insert is a kind of a pain to install/uninstall. And when it is installed it tends to make contact with the shield here and there, creating an effect similar to when tint bubbles up in auto glass. Not very pleasing. So, I just use an anti-fog spray, which seems to work just fine as long as it's applied often.
Overall, I'm very happy with this helmet. HJC just needs to do some fine tuning for the next generation.

This is a very good helmet at a very good price.
I have used this helmet the HJC RPHA 10 Evoke for about three months. the helmet has very good air flow for the hot summer months, and for the cooler months like now with the vents closed the helmet is air tight and very warm. the helmet is light and does not move around in the wind even when you are behind a truck on the highway, and that makes it a whole lot easier on the neck on a long ride. All in all the HJC RPHA 10 is a high quality helmet and I would highly recommend this helmet to anyone needing a new one!!

A Great Helmet for a Great Price
This is a great quality helmet that is DOT and SNELL certified for a great price. It flows air well through the mouth and top vents. The liner in super comfortable and easily removable for washing which is a plus. The shield has a great seal which keeps out water when getting caught in the rain. One issue the helmet has is fogging, but that is only if you do not install the pinlock insert. The helmet feels secure at high speeds and there is minimal buffeting. The best part is that the black/orange buzzsaw graphic matches my KTM perfectly!
