HJC RPHA Max Align Helmet 4.4 5 48 48
Nice helmet albeit a bit pricey Seems like a sturdy and well built helmet. Noise level is surprisingly good. I love the look of this helmet with the reduced shell size HJC uses. I only have two minor complaints so far: 1. The top mounted sun visor control is kinda awkward to use while riding. I would much prefer a side mounted control. 2. The price is a bit steep for HJC. They are pushing into the Shoei range without the reputation. Of course I'm not qualified to say if the quality matches Shoei or not. November 17, 2014
Very Happy I bought my RPHA-Max as my first modular helmet. I'd been wearing an IS-16 up until that point. I've been wearing the RPHA-Max for just over a year now. I have a very long head, so most of the typical modulars are out for me. I was very happy to find that the fit of the RPHA-Max is quite different from the Schuberts and so forth because it actually fits me. So if you are struggling to find a modular that doesn't press on your forehead, try the RPHA-Max. It has gotten noisier over time - no where near as noisy as my IS.16, but certainly noisier than when I first got it. This has built úp over time, and it may just be that I notice the wind noise more now due to the helmet being otherwise very quiet. There is plenty of room for my comm speakers and mic. The only issue I have with it is occasional water intrusion. I have no idea where it is coming from, but it rains inside during really heavy downpours or at higher (60+mph) speeds. Just enough to be annoying. Overall, I love it! October 11, 2014
Not much better than IS MAX My comparison is to the IS MAX BT which I retired and replaced with RPHA. RPHA wind noise is slightly less than IS. I use earplugs with both. No difference to me between internal material. Comfort and absorption is equal. RPHA airflow is equal or slightly less than the IS. I have found the best GoPro mount to be my helmet because the video is smooth and without vibration. The RPHA does not have a mountable surface on top. One would need to figure some awkward side helmet mount. The RPHA sun visor is said to be less dramatic. However, I did not mind the quick snap of the IS. RPHA recoil on the sun visor is so lax that I need to manually press the visor back into its helmet cavity. Stability of the helmet is much better at speed than the IS. However, this may be due to the IS being a size large and the RPHA being a size medium. Both visor and internal pads of RPHA are slightly more difficult to remove compared to the IS. I don't have a need for the Pinlock system, so it is not an advantage to me. Overall, I would choose the IS over the RPHA and save a few dollars. Perhaps I got use to the IS and was expecting more by paying more for the RPHA. Not so except being more stable at speed. I have a Shoei helmet too. I rate the Shoei a decorated tin can compared to both my HJC helmets. August 4, 2014
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 ;-) July 17, 2014
Good product Works as advertised. I should have have paid more attention to the sizing information. After a break in period the helmet is slightly too large now. Wind wants to move it around my noggin a little bit. Great helmet. August 4, 2014
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. May 27, 2014
The helmet is stylish and very functional The ease of disassembly and reassembly is crazy. The visor comes off with one slide and locks back in effortlessly. The dark interior visor is full cover and provides excellent eye protection. It fits snuggly around the cheek bones and jaw line but is not uncomfortable. Excellent helmet! July 7, 2014
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. April 17, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Chris P: 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. Jul 11, 2014
Eric L: Exterior design, sun visor, flip-up chin bar, HJC experience. May 7, 2014
S K: Light, Quiet, Graphics, Price (could be lower!) but based on reviews and cost of other upscale helmets, this seemed ok. Mar 11, 2014

S K: My glasses do fit with no problem but I think that it depends on each type of glasses and the shape of each face/nose wearing them. It does help to have the two different positions for visor which you select as you move the drop down lever to either the higher or lower position. That is a nice feature of this helmet. Jun 2, 2014

A s: Yes it can but unfortunately while holding it at my side I dropped my helmet approximately 2 feet and it landed directly on the tab that slides the visor down. It no longer works at all. Could have been a little sturdier if you ask me, for the money. Jun 3, 2014

DAVID A: I cannot answer positively, however I found this to be an extremely tight fitting/ tight quarters helmet. Not a lot of room inside. My guess is that you can not. Jun 3, 2014
Reply to DAVID Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark C: Yes, I tried my wire rim glasses and the shape of the sun visor allowed about an inch of room between the sun visor and the glasses, my helemt size is XXL. Jun 4, 2014

martin h: YES! I wear glasses and it does not interfere with mine. When you retract the visor there is no shaking or noise, super nice helmet. Jun 2, 2014

A shopper asked: 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

S K: 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! Sep 13, 2014
