HJC RPHA 10 Lorenzo Replica Helmet
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).

Great helmet, bang for the buck BUCK not for people with glasses
I started wearing cheap helmets when I first started riding about three years ago, I was wearing a HJC r2, it was good. Then to a bell helmet, better. Sold all of them and got myself an Arai vector 2 on close out. WHAT a DIFFERENCE !!...wrote that since then for 2 years and I ordered this HJC RPHA Ben Spies helmet....love the number 11... Very well made.. I have to say for that north of 300, 350 range ... I actually expect this helmet to be made in Europe or Japan but it's made in Korea. Love Koreans, my wife is Korean, nothing against them but I would hope like some agv made in Italy, arai and shoei made in Japan.
Tried it on few nights ago when it was about 45 degrees out. Immediately when I was breathing, the breath guard would bounce my breath off to my glasses and fog right up. It was pretty hard to ride with the helmet. Why did it do that ? I took the cheek pads off my arai for cleaning and they weren't dry yet. So the next day, I took the breath guard out and it wasn't fogging up as bad, I have yet to take the chip curtain off because the arai has no breath guard and chin guard. I'm wondering if those are the factor.
To get no wind on your face, you HAVE to snap the center closure to get no wind. Leave it unsnapped, you will get a little air, I guess for venting.
The finish isn't that impressive compare to my vector 2 or my agv gp tech simonicelli. It just doesn't have the WOW factor
Last of all, I am Asian I have a rounder head, HJC fits perfect, my head is 23 inches, I wear a large and large in arai, agv and this one as well. And yes, this helmet loves the tuck more than the vector 2 which is more street.
By the way, Revzilla price matched me when an another site had it for a little cheaper.....four paws up Revz
DOnt wear the size helmet guys !! Stay snug and ride safe
PEACE !!!...... I know I talked too much.....

really great helmet for the price.
Was just at California Superbike school CODE race.
Much more comfortable than my old CS-R2, especially at track when constantly putting it on and removing it.
A lot lighter also. Great vision and the airflow. lower sound levels as well.

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.

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.
