HJC RPHA 10 Lorenzo Graffiti Replica Helmet
really is bang for your buck helmet for motogp protection
Had this helmet for about 4 months now of hard riding, cruising, and just plain going fast at the track.
pros: It definitely shines on the track, peripheral vision is amazing to look ahead on apex's, venting is crazy good you feel and hear how much air its passing. Interstate/freeway use is also awesome cause you're passing so much air, and the silver cool liner is just plain comfortable to be in. visor changing system is super easy.
Cons: fairly loud (cause the amount of air it passes), brow vision could be better but im just nitpicking (not as bad as the gp-tech, but not as good as a corsa) it still works well on a full tuck. careful about sizing, im more of a neutral, slight round shaped head (I wear a small in arai's, medium in agv's and xlite/nolan's) and the Rpha I shouldve gone with a small cause its a bit more longer to the front and back. its still snug, dont get me wrong, but it's just not a "race fit" snug like my xlite or arai. helmet shape is a bit "bulky". visor changing system is easy to use but feels a bit plasticky/flimsy. chin venting could be better
note: get tearoffs, its make a world difference when riding.
overall: amazing value for sub $500, you're getting performance and safety derived features from a 2 time motogp champ. purty amazing getting motogp level protection for this kinda money.

Excellent helmet.....striking design
I currently wear an HJC FS-15 Carbon Fiber helmet but after 4 years it was time for a change. I tend to have a narrower noggin but my previous HJC fit ok so I went with the HJC RPHA-10 after I saw the Lorenzo Graffiti Replica design....wow, a very striking design, you either love it or not. It jumps out when seen in the flesh....many little details pop out and the colors really pop, a picture just doesn't show the depth of the design and execution.
The fit size is neutral and to my head is just a shade on the longer oval side of things. The interior is luxurious and very comfortable and fits tight to the face although I can still slip on my sunglasses. Little touches like the Lorenzo seal, and the 'Think Positive' embroidered on the strap are cool touches.
I immediately noticed how quiet the helmet is while wearing earplugs, and the ventilation from the chin vent and top vents is strong, when you open the vents while moving you can definitely feel the airflow. The new style face shield fits extremely tight but easily raised by the center release tab, changing it is similar to the Shoei design, extremely easy.
Overall I would rate this an excellent top of the line helmet, very comfortable, quiet, great features, and the fit and finish on the shell and hardware is every bit as good as the top Japanese helmets from Arai and Shoei. If you want a top line lid consider the RPHA-10.

I can have any helmet $900+ or more, I choose this one because...
At first glance this was a helmet I wanted to own, still I didn't let that determine my decision. I went through every review possibly out on the web as we speak and put it off for about a whole season. Personally the quality of the paint and reflectivity of the "X" immediately pops, all while hitting the attack/aggressive position. Surprisingly very quiet, reaching higher speeds of 110 plus. I do want to add that the view caught me off guard, only because I own the ICON Variant (big game). In other words I had to apply more energy to observe my surroundings. None the less, I recommend this particular design for men, women and those who welcome a spectacular, sexy, beast of a helmet directed to our generation.

My new HRPA 10 Lorenzo Grafitti Replica Helmet
Just received it a few days ago from another stores as I have a problem in purchasing it from the United States as we are usually coming in Canada.
Anyways, the helmet arrived together with my Alpinestar Atem Leather Jacket. I am actually more excited to receive the helmet than in my jacket. Why? Well, when I saw the replica, I was literally fell in love in a way that I have never felt before in some of my gears upon seeing it online. I told to myself that I have to get it no matter what and no matter where. Therefore, I have phoned all my friends and acquaintances in the USA and in Canada and told them to buy it for me. Eventually, one of my old shipchandler said, "Okay Captain, I'm gonna do it for you," which her wife did.
The helmet arrived and wrapped in a good-looking box with the graffiti graphics similar to Lorenzo's graphics in the helmet. I am quite impress by its packaging. Now, on opening the box, the helmet looks stellar! I mean, it shines! The finish is very shiny and it looks like that when a fly made a landing on the shell, the fly is gonna slide all the way down! (Okay! That is sooo much!)
I have a fairly large head. When I took my measurement just above my brow, I have a 23 1/2" size of head. I took the XL as the last time I purchased a Dainese K3 Gothic helmet, I took the L size and when I received and try to fit it, geezzz! My ears hurt. I e-mailed revzilla and told them about that incident and they told me that the cheek pads usually break-in to about 50% of their original size. But too late! I have already sold the helmet to one of my crew and he took it without second thought.
When I bring it out to some of the crew who are enthusiast, they said, wow!!! It looks cool!!! And I said, oh yeahh!! The finish looks astounding. The cheek pads is soft and the helmet is so light. Far from the local helmet that I am using although I bought it for P5,000 (more than a hundred US $) in our country.
I am not a big fan of Lorenzo. I am more on Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi. But their replicas are way too much for me and their replicas don't have the Monster Energy logos which are a big plus for this helmet. Not mentioning that this is a limited edition helmet and there might be a very few of us having this helmet in our country.
The visor can be replaced without using any tool. They use the Rapid-Fire system and you could just replace it spot-on. I love what these manufacturers are making nowadays to their products. Everything can be done now without breaking any sweat.
There also some stickers accompanied in the box and you might want to stick it anywhere you want if you are a die-hard fan of Lorenzo.
As a whole, I am completely satisfied with this helmet. And oh, by the way, the helmet was made in Korea and not in China. Korea nowadays is very close now to the quality of Japan compare to China where they made trash.

Bought this helmet because I am a huge Lorenzo fan, however when I received this product I was surprised and delighted. This helmet is absolutely perfect! The graphic is amazing, I love it so much I started giggling when I put on the helmet. One downside is the DOT sticker covering the graphic. The fit is bang on. I am a S in Shoei and Arai, bought S in this helmet and fit perfectly. It is so comfortable I didn't want to take it off. I got so much compliment on this helmet, everyone loves it!
