Fantastic helmet at a decent price = excellent value
Well I had an HJC CL2 Max in 4X for my large head, but when the lining wore in it became too loose. There was too much movement and wind noise in the helmet so I decided I needed to get a good replacement helmet. Since I wear glasses and based on my riding needs I liked the convenience of another modular helmet.

Willing to spend around $500 I started looking at Nolan, Shoei, and even tried on the Schuberth. The Nolan I tried on was pretty comfortable as was the Schuberth. The Arai was not as comfortable and I did not get a chance to try a modular but tried a conventional full face helmet. Then I tried the HJC RPHA full face helmet. Very comfortable and confirmed the right size I needed - 2X. Based on that experience in a local store I shopped around online for the HJC RHPA Max Align and found it at Revzilla for a decent price. It arrived in less than a week in great condition.

This is a great helmet. The fit was snug at first and is still somewhat snug after a couple of weeks, especially in the cheeks. The rest of the fit was PERFECT for my head.

Ergonomics for this helmet is fantastic. Peripheral vision is much better than with the CL2 Max, and the shape of the sides of the base is such that I can even turn my head to the side more than I ever could before.

Ventilation is great because there is a clear air gap between the top of the liner and the inner surface of the shell. I can even feel the air swirling around up there and moving my hair! The chin vent also allows a lot of air in (even a tiny fly came in once!), and the lining fits closely around the neck so that all the incoming air is pushed out through the rear vents for a nice through-flow. The supplied chin curtain seals off the bottom front of the helmet nicely against the underside of my chin, which is great for noise but traps the warm breath-air below the nose deflector. I like the fact that the chin curtain is attached to the chin bar and just clears the point of my chin without help. Perfect.

The sunshade visor works as designed and has 3 positions, none of which hit my glasses as with some other helmets - major win, since I don't have prescription sunglasses (and could not really be bothered to be switching.

The shield with supplied Pinlock works perfectly - as expected - slick one finger operation to open and snaps shut easily. It swings up fully and is easy to remove and reinstall from the helmet.

I had a Pinlock on my previous helmet and liked it so much that it was a requirement on the next helmet. While I get no fogging on the shield, the nose deflector causes my glasses to fog up on cool mornings and cracking the shield does not help much. No problem though - just pulled off the nose shield and the problem went away.

I transferred my Sena SMH10 system over from the old helmet to the RPHA Max. The cushions were easy to remove and reinstall. The speakers fit in the recesses but were partially blocked by a part of the padding. I feared that would mean muffled sound. Not so. The Sena never sounded better and louder than it does now, and with a fuller music sound. The difference between the old and new helmets was NIGHT AND DAY. I still have to tweak the settings for the phone though, since my wife said I sounded muffled. Granted I was doing 65 mph plus at the time.

I also stuck a GoPro mount on the right side of the helmet and was able to find curvature that suited the curved stick-on base mount. Works well when recording footage.

Weight-wise - the Max Align is not as light as the 2X full face RPHA helmet I tried, which was feather-light - just a little heavier than the Schuberth! But it was still lighter than the CL2 Max.

As for noise - quieter than the CL2 Max that's for sure but I have not worn any other helmets other than these so I have no idea how quiet it is supposed to be. All I know is that at 70 mph on the freeway (where it is usually a bit windy) I can still hear my radio through the Sena speakers, despite hearing a fair bit of wind noise. At least the wind does not appear to be rushing up and in from around my neck! Maybe the Sena is adding to the wind turbulence and the noise but since that is a "must have" on my helmet, I have to live with that.

The graphics are very nice with white, grey and black - good for visibility, along with the reflector on the liner at the back of the neck to aid with visibility when headlights shine on it from behind.

All in all, an excellent helmet for a decent price. Good quality construction, and great value for the money. Buy one!

Very good helmet
I replaced my Shoei Neotech with this HJC RPHA and feel it is just as good for $100 or so less. The fit works well with the shape of my head, thanks to the gear geek on the phone who said my Shoei head would fit well in the HJC. I have worn it riding for about 10 hours so far and after initially finding a few tight spots all has worn in to be comfortable. The field of vision is wide and better than my Neotech but I agree with other reviewers that the sunscreen shield is lighter (not as dark) than I'm used to. My eyes seem to have adapted as I don't really notice it now and I live in sunny south Florida where it is bright most of the time. I am concerned about the spring return feature that moves the sunscreen back to the "up" position. It doesn't have a very solid sound and feels flimsy. I'll see how it holds up. Ventilation is about the same as the Neotech but since I have a windshield, any ventilation is very reduced.
Overall I am pleased with this purchase. This helmet fits well, looks good, provides protection and is a good value.

Great Bang For The Buck !!!!
The fit of this helmet was spot-on with what the video review said. The overall build quality and finish is superior and the appearance of the helmet is fantastic. I really liked the fit and comfort. Since I wear glasses, pressure on the temple area can't be so tight that it jams the temples of my eyeglasses into my head. HJC did a great job on this and the padding is just right. If you wear glasses, be sure to give this helmet a try.

Great helmet
I bought this helmet after a lot of online research. It is close to the lightest modular helmet available and has gotten very good reviews. I commute to work on my 2006 Yamaha FZ1, about 34 miles round trip, and I have done a couple of multi-day road trips wearing this helmet and it is holding up very well. I would give it nearly five stars after almost a year of regular use. The ventilation system is the best of any helmet I have ever owned. On one road trip last summer, we were riding in temperatures ranging from 94 to 98 degrees, and the ventilation was so good that I had to close the top vent because the hot outside air was overheating my forehead! Very nice to be able to flip open the helmet when stopped in warm/hot temperatures. In less extreme temperatures, the vents work very well at keeping a noticeable amount of cooling air moving through the helmet while riding. One thing that I noticed right away with this helmet is that it is very stable at speed and is not as subject to buffeting as the KBC modular that I previously owned - and substantially lighter on the head as well. I have never owned a helmet with a pinlock visor system before. The pinlock visor system works amazingly well at eliminating fogging. After 38 years of holding my breath at stops during cool/cold weather to keep the visor from fogging, I found myself still doing that for the first couple of months after I bought this helmet, only to discover that the visor does not fog up at all, even when breathing normally at stops. It comes with one pinlock visor insert - a $35.99 value. Visor changes are easy, with a well engineered, simple and stout quick-release system. No worries about breaking off tiny little molded plastic parts with this system (been there, done that.) The chin strap is well padded and very comfortable – again, the most comfortable of any helmet I have owned. The only item that I cannot speak to is riding in heavy rain, as I have not yet done that with this helmet. No leakage around the visor or through the vents in the light to moderate rain that I have ridden through. The few nits that I have with this helmet are very minor – the moveable tab on the double d ring isn’t as easy to use for releasing the chin-strap as the fixed tab on the Arai’s that I have owned in the past, the internal dark visor does fog up when using it and stopped in cool/cold conditions (Yes, I am spoiled now by the pinlock visor.) Deploying the internal visor requires a firm push forward which rolls the helmet slightly forward and down on your head, so the helmet needs to be repositioned (pushed back up slightly) afterward. Same with closing the face piece on the helmet. But that happens on any modular helmet. Too bad it isn't offered in more colors. I bought my first full-face helmet in 1977, a Bell Star, and have owned a number of different brands since then, including AGV, Shoei, mostly Arai’s and most recently (before this helmet) a KBC modular. If you have not owned a modular helmet before, you really should try one - I don’t think you will go back. This state-of-the-art helmet is light, comfortable, stable at speed, reasonably quiet and very versatile with the modular design, pinlock visor and retractable internal dark visor. I consider this helmet to be an excellent value.

Feels Good
Just finished 400+ miles wearing this helmet and no stress on the neck from weight. Good visibility and the sun shield comes to the right level to provide eye protection from sun. Great fit, true to sizing chart. Next is the installation of SENA communication system. Super service, ordered on a Sunday night and it was delivered on Tuesday, Thanks Revzilla.

Didn't love it.
I am an admitted gear head, and own no fewer than five helmets. The RPHA Max, while well built and attractive, just didn't do it for me. The biggest deal breaker was the shape. I have a "Shoei head," and the RPHA Max in my size (62cm, so XXL) had ample space at the sides was but pressing on my forehead. First, though, some positives. What a great looking helmet! The paint was flawless, and in the sun literally sparkled. The shell is pretty small, so you don't look like an Apollo astronaut with it on. The liner was comfortable as were the pads, though I wouldn't put them in the same category as Shoei for sheer plushness (but then again, nobody else is). All the controls were very easy to operate even with gloves on, and seemed sturdy. The top vent has huge channels and nothing to block the air flow, so should work well. Now, my negatives. While the face shield was perfectly clear and free from defects, the sun visor was distorted. That should never, ever happen on a helmet in this price range. I also thought the stock sun visor was nowhere near dark enough, but maybe that's personal preference. It was a "light smoke" at best. The face shield latch is positioned dead center, and while it is easy to manipulate and positively latches, I found it to be distracting in my field of view, especially if the shield is open even a small amount for venting. Also, while offering a great field of view from side to side, I found the FOV to be quite narrow top to bottom. Now, admittedly, all of these (except the distorted sun visor) are subjective. I ordered this because I dropped my Lazer Monaco and did some structural damage to it. Thought I'd try something different and ordered the RPHA Max. Maybe, MAYBE, if the shape had suited my melon I'd have gotten used to the rest (except the distorted visor, which I detested), I found nothing about the helmet so negative as to prevent me from recommending it (except the..well, you know...) but it just wasn't for me. So, in the vein of trying something different I ordered...another Monaco. But this one is carbon fiber, and a different color than my old one ;-)

Want to return this Helmet
Where do I start? I really want to return this helmet but the box got wet in the rain. I am stuck with it now. First thing I really don't like is the sun visor. It doesn't block out any sunlight. I purchased the dark grey one shade to see if it would block the sun but the results are the same. The so called darker one is almost the same as the stock shade. Waste of money. Second thing I don't like is the to vents on the rear of the helmet. I was riding through phoenix AZ, when I encounter rain. Rain entered the two air vents on the back of my helmet. The water dripping down my neck was freezing and cold. Not so pleasant.. This helmet is not comfortable at all. The padding is so spaced out in the inside top of the helmet that my head hits the Styrofoam. Not comfortable at all. I have a Goldwing and I ride long distance on every trip. The good thing about this helmet is its weight. No rain, short trips, need something light weight, then this is the helmet for you..

Best helmet I have ever had.
I am a 63 year old veteran rider. This helmet is quieter than any helmet I have had, however, wind buffeting on my VStrom does cause some noise. Not sure any helmet can eliminate that issue so I am ordering a larger windscreen. When I duck down behind the windscreen I am in a quiet world with road and engine noise pleasantly controlled. This helmet is light! My neck is not sore at the end of the day as it has been with my many previous helmets. Everything works smoothly and the quality is quite good as is the price. I hope this helps in your quest for the perfect helmet. Safe travels!

Light, quiet, comfortable - best way to describe this helmet!
I replaced my Nolan N103 for this helmet and the difference is amazing. The weight, or lack thereof, is instantly noticeable. Getting it on and off is easier than the Nolan and the padding conforms well with my cheeks which reduces wind noise much better than any other helmet I've owned. Airflow (venting) is also much better than the Nolan. The only minor complaint and the reason I gave only 4 stars for features is because the inner visor fogs way too easily. The pinlock shield is fog-free but with the visor down, I have to crack the shield and open the chin vent to clear the visor. Small price to pay for an otherwise great helmet.

This is a very good helmet for the price
I have worn it for several hours on 2 rides. I ride behind a fairing and windshield. The only negative issue is with the penlock shield. In the rain and 50 degree weather I experienced some fogging. This is of course no fault of the helmet. The light weight, fit and noise level are much superior to the $200 price range helmets I have always purchased. I am a fan of HJC and own several of their helmets. They did a good job on this one. Over all I am very happy with the purchase.

Features, reviews, and price. I use a Sena SMH-10 which eliminated the Nolan N104 and Schuberth C3 from contention due to the placement of their sun shield levers. I own a Lazer Monaco and love everything about it except the noise at highway speeds. Though I'm not expecting Shoei plushness, I'm not sure I'll notice enough difference between this and a Neotec to justify the extra $200. The WebBikeWorld review was also mostly positive, particularly in the ventilation and quietness categories.

Can the integrated sun visor in the HJC RPHA Max Align Helmet be used if you wear eye glasses?
Nigel S on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes
I have a round shape head, will this be too narrow for me and pinch my temples?
Victoria M on Mar 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have not had any pinching after wearing for two years. It may seem a little tight at first but will get better with wear. Just be aware that you will get comments about its looks, enjoy.
Is the RPHA Max the same as the ROHA Max Align? Is it just the color scheme that is different? If so, do the make a model that is carbon fiber?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I Don't know anything about the ROHA Max helmet. I have the RPHA Max and it has a layer of carbon fiber but it is not visible.
Revilla!

I presently have an RHPA 10, which on my naked bike is great but on my ADV bike I can barely stand for more than an hour. I think it has to do with the windshield height - the wind gets to the top half of the helmet (creating downforce) but not the bottom half (so no lift). With my very tired N102, this wasn't an issue.

What I'm hoping is the Max's aero-profile creates less downforce. Has anyone used both that can comment?

Thanks, Jim W
A shopper on Sep 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My VS650 has an aftermarket windscreen on it that is quite tall but I still get wind hitting the top of my RPHA. I don't notice any downforce on it but my windscreen is a big improvement over my stock screen, and my RPHA is a BIG improvement over my former helmets!
