Love This Helmet!! And the Price!! Used to have a Suomy before my crash. Bought New gear, tried on about 20 helmets and this one was it!! Comfort, style, and legit airflow!! Looking to order another as a spare!!

Light as a feather
I was between this and the Shoei RF 1100 and I am so glad I went with RPHA. I have not spent many hours in it, but already am thrilled with how light and comfortable it is. Also the anti fog feature is very effective and helpful.

Love the weight
This is the 3rd full face helmet I've owned (The other two: Scorpion exo-400 and AGV S-4) and is the most comfortable and best fitting I've ever put on my head. The weight is amazing. It's right on par with my old S-4, but much more comfortable, and with more features. It's more aerodynamic than the EXO, which helps with wind noise, and lane checks at speed, but doesn't seem to muffle noise as much, so I can hear the engine/exhaust better. The air-flow obviously isn't as good as the S-4 (it's vents are wide open, & can't close), but has better flow than the EXO, especially on the top vents. For cooler riding the included chin dam works better than the optional one I bought for the EXO, as it is a little larger. I love the fact I can comfortably wear sunglasses with this helmet, eliminating the need for a tinted shield, and making the transition from day to night riding a simple matter of stowing the glasses. I have two gripes with this helmet: 1, which is least significant, the graphics look cheap. Also if you're worried about matching gear (I'm not), the red/orange/red fade may prove difficult. 2, my biggest complaint, the shield fogs almost instantly at stops and slow speeds (under 15mph), and takes a bit too long to defog at speed. The shield on my exo was much better in this regard. I'll have to apply something to the shield to fix that. All in all I really like this helmet.

Good Lookin'! Comfortable! Great Helmet!!!
This is the most comfortable, quietest and lightest helmet I have worn in over 13 years of riding. The fit (I wear a Medium and have a 58cm head circumference) is slightly loose, but I suspect replacement pads or a liner might address this. But nothing dangerous or annoying - just personally would like a little snugger fit. Air flow is fantastic and the noise level seems consistently quiet for a helmet of this type and ridden at speed.
No fatigue from wearing it for prolonged periods due to its incredibly light weight.
And, the graphics are nice. The red does fade to orange and the blue is dark (almost black).
But for the $$$, you can't go wrong. Have worn two Shoei X 11s and I prefer this! And half the price!

Ohh that Zappy!! It makes me happy.
I needed a new helmet. I wanted a NICE helmet. You don't typically equate nice and HJC in the same sentence. But after trying on every brand under the sun I kept coming back to the fact the HJC lids just fit me best... So RPHA it was.
No regrets. It's a great helmet.
The good: Light weight, great fit, aerodynamic, well vented, good field of view, fairly quiet, and a sweet graphic (red/white/blue).
The not so good: The fit is a tad large. Not a fan of the top roller vents. Pin lock inserts are not for me - I don't like the optical distortion... which means I fog when not moving.
The neutral - It's a track inspired helmet. It works fine for in town riding but you can definitely tell it's geared for a more aggressive riding style/position.
All in all, an excellent helmet. It's one of those things where you don't know what you're missing until you have it.

excellent quality and high performance for sport bike
Is great how fit on your heat, the style a design is great, is very light, is very comfortable, but have one think wen you are riding with your breath can fog your vision even wen the air flow is open, in the free way is just awesome!!!!!!!

Love the helmet fits perfectly and is super light weight. Air flow is perfect, very glad I bought this helmet. Cannot beat the bang for the buck!
Also when I opened the box I noticed a small chip on the vent. I was upset because I paid a lot of money and wanted it to be flawless. I drove down to the store in Philadelphia and explained the story and they exchanged it with no problem! These people are great and truly like what they do. I could not be any happier with the customer service I received! Keep up the great work Revzilla! You have earned a loyal customer!

I love this helmet! It is one of the lightest I have tried on and John in customer service was very helpful in helping me choose the correct size. I have an intermediate oval head shape and it fits great! I went with the white, red, and blue color scheme and although it looks very nice the blue is much darker than the pictures show on Revzilla. I added the blue mirror shield and it looks very sharp! Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.
