HJC RPHA 10 Cage Helmet
Excellent Helmet! Crash Tested!
This helmet is super comfy and sports a similar fit and feel to the Shoei RF1100. Has excellent FOV and ventilation. A lightweight helmet that is meant to be for race or aggressive street applications. Love this helmet.
I crashed in this helmet at the track doing about 50mph +- 5MPH. I went down on my right side, landing shoulder, then back of the head first. I remember my first thought at impact, it was, daaaang, that was really soft. Thats how comfortable yet protective this helmet is. There is no question about the quality of this helmet. I wouldnt hesitate to buy this helmet again. HJC knocked this helmet design out the park. Its a race helmet with all the perks at an excellent price point to match.

I love this helmet. I was in the market for a new helmet when I purchased my 3rd bike this summer and my uncle recommended me this one. It is very easy to change the face shields out on so you can have numerous ones depending on the weather. The helmet is also very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.

As expected for the money
You're probably looking at this helmet for its cool looks.. well what you see is what you get. Graphics are hot! Comfort is good, I like the materials used for padding and inside of the helmet. Sizing is good, make sure you buy tight! First time I put it on I was surprised (this is my first helmet) at how tight my size was, as I was told my "correct" size at a dealer that measured my head. It definitely broke in though - it feels perfect now! I have a narrow head and I can feel more pressure on my forehead than the sides of my head - this helmet is a pretty solid intermediate oval. But thats nothing that cannot be adjusted on the inside of the helmet. Thought ventilation would be felt better, I mean I feel a little bit but not much. Noise level is quiet I would say. Overall solid product, I am very satisfied.

Stylish and packed with goodness.
After weeks of searching for a new helmet, I finally landed on the RPHA 10 Combust. It is Snell approved, full face, well ventilated, and snug. I bought this helmet to replace my Bell Star that I've had for almost 6 years. The shape is very similar to the Bell Star, but the fit and viewing angle is much better. To top it off, this bad boy is quiet as can be! I haven't needed to use the pin-lock system yet, but the rest of the features are fantastic. I highly recommend this helmet to anybody needing a Snell-approved, full-face, high-quality helmet for a worthy price. Get some!
On a side note, Revzilla was great for my needs. I ordered the helmet on Friday and received it on Tuesday--even with Monday having been a holiday. Great job, fellas.

Top notch helmet
This is my second helmet from HJC and I love it. Great bang for the buck. It's super light, very comfortable, great vision, and the inbox pin-lock is a big bonus. Fits nice and snug like a race helmet is supposed to. Air flow sitting up isn't great, but as soon as you bring it in to a tuck you can feel it REALLY start to pull air through. Picked it up in the Spies III graphic and it looks spectacular. If you haven't seen it in person, the color scheme is a fade from red along the forehead to a high-vis orange on the crown which is hard to tell in the pictures and could come to some as a surprise. Overall, a fantastic helmet that's worth a good look.

Very light weight
Fits me perfectly (I have a more narrow shaped head), I tried on many brands at a motorcycle show, this fit me the best
Wind noise is average.
The included pinlock work great, no fogging.
Really the only thing I would like to be better is airflow.
I have had a lot of high end car helmets and it is amazing the features/performance/value this helmet has!

Hey fellow riders. I've put around 1000 Kms on this helmet. Let's start with the bad first since there's only two things I can say I don't like about it. First thing is fog! Pin lock system and all and I still get fog while sitting at traffic lights. Second thing and this is a big one for me is the noise from wind. It seems to be mostly on the right side for some reason. Vents open or closed it dosent matter it's very loud. I have to use ear plugs on long rides. Ok now for the good stuff and the list is long. Comfort this helmet is light,soft,snugg fit on the cheeks which I like,a nice wide view, venting cools you down immediately. Chin strap sits right In the middle of my jaw and is perfect for round heads. Comparing this helmet to my corsair five it's very close and I would recommend this bucket to anyone. Bang for the buck to say the least. The price is very reasonable, you get a great product for you money. All and all I really like this product I only hope they sort out the noise issue in the future. I'll be keeping my ear out for changes in that department when considering my next helmet. Thanks to revzilla for making it easy to return my original order of the wrong size. They have great customer service. I give the helmet 8 outta 10 and revzilla a 10 outta 10. Thanks again. Keep your two wheels down and you right hand cranked.

Great product, great price and great service
This is my first HJC as I've been almost exclusively an Arai guy for the latter part of my 40+ year riding life. I tried an RPHA in the store and was amazed at the quality of fit and comfort as well as the overall quality of the product. The lightness of the helmet was also an attraction.
As far as the great price and service comment goes, I had already ordered my helmet from Revzilla (and it had already been shipped) when I received an email from a competitor that the very same helmet was in stock and in my size for an even better price than Revzilla's. I called Revzilla customer service and was given a refund to match the competitor's price, no problem. This is all I could ask of a retailer and I'll be back because of that excellent service.
FYI: I usually fit a large Arai but the medium RPHA fit perfectly.
