HJC RPHA 10 Lorenzo Replica Helmet
A great helmet with few downsides
I've only been using the helmet for 3 months but so far it's performing well. The only real problem I've had is visibility when the pinlock is fitted to the clear visor. Because I use this for racing and spend a lot of time crouching & looking through the top of the visor the line at the top of the pinlock cuts the visibility a little. I've never had it fog up so maybe that's a small price to pay

Great trackday helmet.
Bought this helmet mostly for track days. Great air flow easy to check behind you going at speed on track. Not moving, you can easily fog up your windshield when closed. Would definitely recommend a anti-fog windshield, it is better if you take the chin curtain off. Overall great track day helmet and stunning looks.

I started ridding motorcycles about two weeks ago and picked the RPHA 10 as my first helmet. All of the reviews were awesome and the fact that it was DOT AND SNELL certified only made it more convincing. Three days after getting the helmet I was riding at night going 35-40mph coming to a soft turn with the recommended speed being 30mph. The front of the bike started to slip and in an effort to get it back up I pull to the other side but there was a median and it didn't allow me the space that I needed to prevent a fall. The from tire hit the median and sent me flying side ways. I credit the helmet and it's incredibly comforting interior that all I had was a small neck strain. According to other riders that were with me I landed right on the left temporal region of my head. The helmet performed excellent. It's supper comfortable inside, the field of vision is good, noise level is acceptable, air flow is pretty good and overall an awesome helmet. I will take a couple of points off for two things: 1. The lack of wow! effect of the graphics. Was not impressed. 2. The shield will fog in cold temperatures around mid 50's and that's not too cold. You will need an insert in order to remedy that. A PLUS!!! And this is a big one... I was able to fit my sun glasses with the helmet on and it did not created any pressure points and made the helmet uncomfortable. Overall, because of its performance in the real world of motorcycle and crashing I can recommend this helmet and will buy another one for myself. Ps. My girlfriend ones one, I own one, and a couple of bodies one this helmet. Everyone agrees it is premium and well made.

Good deal, great helmet!
I am a HJC guy. Have worn their AC-12 Carbon since 2006 and it has been simply the best helmet I have ever worn. From RT66 to Patagonia and South Africa, it has always been ready to explore and enjoy. Can't get liner parts anymore, so decided to go with the top of the line RPHA. LOVE it! As always, fit is perfect from the start with no hot spots. Lighter that I expected And the icing on the cake...got it on sale and saved 1/2.

Picking up a second!
What a fantastic lighweight track ready helmet. HJC really gives a lot of bang for the buck with this helmet!

Lifesaving helmet - Highly recommended.
Strong, Lightweight, little fogging, great visibility, average noise (full tuck)
At the end of the day a helmet's job is to save your life; and this helmet did exactly that. This helmet was extremely comfortable to wear in all riding conditions and its lightweight ensured there was no fatigue on those extended rides.
The helmet protected me when I crashed at approximately 50 mph to where I had a direct landing on the front/visor part of the helmet. Between this helmet and my Alpinestar jacket; I had very minimal damage on what would have been a very nasty wreck.
The ONLY thing that would have made this helmet better would be if they developed a shield that changed based on light conditions; as changing shields is a PITA when the weather/time of day changes.

Massive bang for buck, SNELL rated, lightweight
Coming from an HJC CL-16, I heavily considered this and the RF1200 helmet. Both fit well, but at nearly half the cost, this helmet is almost every bit as good as the RF1200. Solid feel on the visor action, and the liner feels just a hair less quality than the Shoei. Bonus that this helmet includes the chin-curtain, breath guard.
Much quieter than the CL16, 90% less tweaking when head-checking, this helmet offers a lot for the money. Way lighter too, and comparing both Larges, this is packaged much smaller.
Those with glasses may bump into the breath guard just a bit, but it's fine once it's on your noggin'. The guard + curtain does make glasses fog up quite bad/quickly when the ambient temps are below freezing. (no the visor) I'm no scientist, but I think it's simply not enough circulation at that point. (can be fixed by opening vents/cracking the visor, but it's too cold when below freezing to do so).
