HJC RPHA 10 Combust Helmet
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!

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.

I was hesitant to try this model after being a long time Japanese manufactured brand wearer. I wanted to try something different and after reading the reviews on the RHPA 10, combined with the price, I decided to try it. Gotta say I'm surprised at how good this helmet is. It vents well, fits comfortably, and isn't any louder than other helmets I've worn, and I'm comparing it to high end helmets. For the money I don't think you can beat this helmet. Also, replacement shields are much cheaper than other high end brands, and they are very easy to change.

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.

Probably the best bang for the buck
Was in the market for a new helmet and did not want to compromise much on features, looks and functionalty, yet did not want to drop $500-600 for one. I did look at all models, including last year's SHOEIs and ARAIs etc. Some just don't fit right and make the decision easy....others were great but just so, so expensive. Then I tried this RPHA10 on and was flabbergasted at how comfortable and light it was. Add to that the great looks and features and I was sold. Rode 950 miles the first weekend I owned it. Fantastic comfort (it's low weight helps with that), great sound muting for my SENA, great visibility etc.
I'd buy it again tomorrow.

This is a good helmet. Expected more air flow from previous hjc models. If your taking the helmet to the track air flow is great but if your street riding, air flow is isn't that great. It's a track helmet so you get more protection though. Graphics are great and overall a solid helmet. Super light too.

Love the helmet. The style, features, and aerodynamics of it is stellar. My only gripes are that the description states RED, white, and blue, and the red is actually a bright orange. The other issue is that this helmet has limited air flow to make the helmet a quiet ride, so the helmet is extremely hot compared to my cheap $80 one.
I still give it a 5 star because it's an awesome bargain price for this level of quality.
