HJC RPHA Max Helmet - Solid 4.3 5 65 65
Good Deal, Great Features The RPHA Max has a lot of great features, but you pay for them. I'd say it's a very good value, but if the price point is too steep, look at the HJC Sy-Max III. June 15, 2015
Just Okay This is my third HJC helmet and the second consecutive one that has left me less than satisfied. It is comfortable, lightweight, and water resistant. The helmet kept my head dry and comfortable for an entire day of riding in the rain. However, with the helmet providing a dry noggin it now needs a lube job and is very noisy while opening the face shield and flip-up. My biggest source of dis-satisfaction comes from a constant rattling sound at freeway speeds. Thankfully, I wear earplugs. June 8, 2015
A good choice The helmet fits well, is reasonably quiet and lighter than most modulars. I like it. The one annoyance is that the visor clip is distracting with the visor partially open. That being said, I am happy with the helmet overall. June 1, 2015
Close but no Cigar Well this was a disappointment after all the reading I finally got a chance to find a medium and large copy of this new effort by HJC and frankly I was crushed because on paper it looked like a winner for sure. First of all lets get right away to fit. The departure from the HJC norm was not working for my roundish head shape . It was exacerbated by the compactness (normally a desirable thing) in the Medium which is my size in Arai and other high end examples was just a bit too much in this model. There are two snaps on the top of the cheek pads which drilled into my face and I recalled a similar problem on a Bell Mac 9 I had the misfortune of wasting a couple hundred bucks on recently so this was by itself a deal breaker as I felt sure the Large would eventually work loose and not be safe. Next, and again a deal breaker for me was the Audio. In spite of other reviewers who insisted the Sena 10 was a match for this lid , it was my opinion that it would not be a good fit at all. The pocket , if you want to call it that , is both shallow and misshapen for anything close to the shape of the Sena line of speakers and the rim was not suited for a clamp mount either . Come one people you want to sell lids come up with a better solution for Sena's as that is what most of us use now and even larger speakers eventually will be needed for more bass in the mix. That said if it were not for the snaps putting holes in my head in a matter of seconds and the lack of consideration for Audio this helmet would be a winner . Arai admittedly has spoiled me as they just don't have any issues like this and i buy them for close to the same money from a friend in the bizz so as much as I do not like the scratchy liner in the Neotech, it looks like if I am to add a Modular to my mix ,that one will have to be it . Now if I can just find a DEAL on one of those. LOL Good shopping. Revile Rocks normally but the review on this lid was a bit off in my view ...... May 29, 2015
Best bang for buck modular At this price point...you really can't beat it. It has all the features one can ask for...but at a price that's beats everything out of the water. It's light and comfortable...quieter than most modular. The sunvisor is a bonus but it could be a shade darker. May 26, 2015
This is my 2nd RPHA... Although I like the helmet, be warned....Do Not leave the chin bar open when the helmet is sitting around. My helmet fell about 18in and broke the entire hinge mechanism on one side. My fault, but a very weak area. That said, I replaced it with the same helmet. True to fit, for HJC. Very light, wide view, and fairly quiet, with vents closed. A bit expensive though. May 18, 2015
Rates up there with the Big boys at 1/2 the price. I found this helmet to fit perfect I wear a LG size and this fits better than my 3 previous HJC Modular Helmets. Its the lightest of the bunch . I really like the drop down sun shield. The air flow is the best out of all my full helmets and its as light as my full face and lightest of all my modular. For the money its a real good value and my go to helmet now. It is also a good looking helmet! April 27, 2015
Best Modular HJC has made yet. I waited for a good break-in time before writing a review. I wanted a lot of riding time and to do some thinking about what this helmet is and is not when compared to others on the market in respect to features and not necessarily price. HJC has really hit a home run with the RPHA MAX. Pulling it out of the box I immediately noticed the helmet bag. This "aint no" ordinary bag. This bag looks like one you'd get with a much more expensive helmet. Pulled the helmet out and the flat black gave life to the shape and contours of the helmet the other colors just don't do justice. The style is of course the first thing other people notice and even my boss was blown away when I first rode up to work wearing the RPHA Max in all its flat black glory. I purchased the XL as my previous HJC helmets have also been XL. The overall design of the helmet is smaller and more compact. The outer shell is much smaller than the modular it is replacing. The initial fit was TIGHT, surprisingly tight. This was a little more snug than the usual "new" feeling before break-in. The inner shape is a touch different than the usual round HJC making it even more snug for me front to back. This being said after having worn the helmet for some time and let it heat cycle in the sun and with my head in the shell the inner pads have started to conform to me nicely and the tight feeling has been replaced with a positive snug fit rather than an annoying pressure. This is the first helmet I've had that didn't require the use of ear-plugs of some sort while on the interstate. This is a welcome feature. Is it tomb silent? No. I can still hear the wind a little and of course my loud exhaust ever present but the sound level is not deafening and can be endured for long periods of time. The pin-lock face shield is excellent. This is usually a feature found on modulars that cost much more, but HJC has put this at a great price point. The main shield locks tight and seals well around the entire face cavity killing any wind noise in that area and keeping dirt, dust and debris from entering around it. The inner sun shield is definitely not dark enough. Of course non of the helmets with an inner sun visor are dark enough. A quick trip to the local window tinter and a request for a scrap of tint from another job made the fix cheap and easy. I just tinted the outside of the visor with some high quality 30% tint (30% added to the 50% or 60% that's already there) and the visor is now plenty dark enough to block out the sun. I added the Scala Rider G9x Bluetooth system to the helmet. The construction of the neck roll made this a little tough to get the wires routed, but patience and planning and everything went it just fine. In fact there are nice recesses just above the chin strap and right where the ear sits that allow the small speakers to be placed. The airflow on the RPHA Max is amazing. I do get a little air coming through even with the vent closed. More than likely because of the effectiveness of the scoop. With the vent open I get airflow all the way down to my neck. Since I live in Southern Arizona this will be great in the summer. All in all I would easily recommend this helmet to anyone looking for a new modular. Comparing to the other brands by features you'll save a ton of cash, get a light and safe helmet, and have people asking you where you got such a cool piece of hardware. April 23, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
D E: researched helments, was best deal. May 1, 2015
Simone S: This is for my wife, I have the same one, very good quality for the price Feb 18, 2015
Richard O: Thought it would fit my long oval head -- it didn't, major forehead pressure point. Feb 14, 2015
Scot L: Lots of bang for the buck Feb 2, 2015
John M: Did a lot of research on this one. I have always wore a peanut shell novelty helmet, just to show I wore a helmet. A friend went down, died, left wire and infant behind. Reality slap. Time to get a real helmet with some protection. Never wore a full face, and was skeptical. I got the modular as kind of a crossover for me. Really great helmet for the money. Still a little pricey at $400+, but worth it. Couldn't believe how pricey helmets can get. Still a really good helmet. Oct 12, 2014
Andru H: Friends have this helmet and highly recommend it. Time for a new helmet. Oct 3, 2014
Chris C: Article in race mag. Video. User comments. Aug 3, 2014
Eldrick A: Modular helmet design, low noise level, built in sun visor and very competitive pricing. Jul 11, 2014
Joseph L M: I picked this helmet because of the ratings specifically because of noise isolation, included pin lock shield and tinted visor for glare. Price seems reasonable, but I will have to try this helmet to be sure. Jun 30, 2014
Kurt B: All the features I wanted and great reviews. Jun 28, 2014
Rocky D: I have tried this helmet on in large and extra large. One fits a little tight the other is a little on the loose side it maybe a toss up so the return policy is a big plus,cause my dealer has to order the helmet so if it doesn't fit its on me for re-stock fee and then order the next size and hope it doesn't repeat. Jun 27, 2014
Michael S: Received top reviews for 2014 modulars, my wife loves her HJC modular, reviewer claims very good air flow and weight is reasonable. Jun 13, 2014

A shopper asked: Interested in the HJC RPHA Max ( modular ). have read about some issues with the sun shade and possible clarity issues with this.
Do you know if this is a real issue or if it is has it been remedied ?.
Also, am curious if it has the ( European) ECE rating ?.
I tried a large on at a local vendor and it was a perfect fit.
Also curious about how it compares to the Nolan N104 9 modular ?.

Ronald M: I happen to have both of the helmets you are talking about. The HJC RPHA Max is great in regards to field of view etc. I had no problems with the sun shade but my use of the sunshade was very limited. The problem I had with the HJC RPHA was that it caused terrible head paint on the top of my head to the point that I had to stop and take it off and I haven't used it since. My helmet only has about 4hrs of riding on it. It feels great for about the first hour and then it literally starts to cause the top of my head to ache. I think this is caused by the fact that they only have one strip of headliner material foam protection on the top of the helmet with a pretty wide gap between the side liner. This leaves space for the hardened styrofoam of the actual helmet to rub your head after settling while riding. I can not use this helmet for long rides because of this. I have no idea if it has the ECE rating or not.
The Nolan N104 that I have is excellent. The only small problem is that the side liner if not positioned exactly correct will tend to pinch the ears after about 2hrs of riding. It's a great helmet with outstanding visibility and very quiet.

Mike D: I have had zero issues with the sun shade. I live in the western half of the city, and I have to travel east every morning going to work, and west on the way home. When I first bought the helmet I didn't think it was going to be dark enough, however that's not the case. I used it on a daily basis all summer, and never experienced any distortion or clarity issues. As far as comparing it to the Nolan or any other brand I can't comment on. I bought the RPHA Max to replace a HJC Symax that was damaged in a little scrape with the pavement when I crashed. I didn't even consider another brand based on my previous HJC. I think it's a great value. Dec 16, 2013

Harland G: I wear glasses and have not had issues with sun shade clarity. I do not know about the ECE rating, but I know it performs well in an accident. I was traveling around 50 mph when a deer jumped out in front of me. I tried to avoid but tapped the deer and was ejected. I landed on my left sholder and left side of the helmet. I have a broken shoulder, broken hand, but no head injury. The helmet did its job. I will be replacing with another RPHA MAX, once my shoulder heals and can ride again. The Nolan is good helmet, but I preferred the fit of the RPHA MAX. This is definitely a quality helment. Dec 16, 2013

Jeremy M: I had the RPHA Max for about a year, don't have it anymore due to an accident. The only issue I had with the visor was when It's good and cold out the sun visor had the tendency to fog up if I wasn't rolling. Not a huge deal though, I would just flip up my main visor till I started down the road again. IMO these are excellent helmets for the money. The only other issue I had with the helmet was the gasket around the visor wanted to come unglued from the helmet fairly often on one corner, I think it may be a flaw in the design of the gasket. Easily fixable though. Dec 16, 2013

David H: The sun shield on mine does seem to have a slight imperfection, like a barely perceptible ripple. Not enough to keep me from using it on a daily basis, or replace it for that matter. I have had several modular helmets, and this one is by far the best. I had a Nolan 104 which I quite liked, but this is lighter and quieter. Also the sun shield extends down farther than the Nolan. Deployment is a bit awkward, but you get used to it and the retraction works every time. The Nolan would occasionally balk and the shield get stuck down. Hope this helps. Dec 16, 2013

Arthur W: I have not had issue with the sun visor but I don't use it very often. I prefer polarized sun glasses when needed.
Don't know about the Euro specs.
I tried just about every modular helmet at the Revzilla show room. Price was no object for me and initially I was skeptical of the RPHA. How could it be better than a $1000 helmet? Well at the end of the day I liked it the best. After a year I can say it's fantastic. Extremely aerodynamic. Lite and comfortable.
Hope that helps...

Adam B: If there are clarity issues with the sun visor, I haven't seen it. It has a good feel and is very functional. ECE is very difficult to find in a modular --not 100% but I don't think the RPHA has it. I don't have any experience with the Nolan but I can tell you the quality of the RPHA is very impressive. I'm an Arai guy myself, bought this helmet for my girlfriend after my buddy at a local motorcycle shop kept bragging on it. It is a nice piece. You won't be disappointed. Dec 15, 2013

Brian P: First one I got had a small issue with it. It would catch in the first detent. Second one had no issues. Revzilla took it right back and swapped it out no charge. No clarity issues at all with the visor. A bit difficult cleaning it if it gets wet without removing it.

I love it. Mine fits like a glove too.

For the money it's a good helmet.

thomas s asked: Does anyone know if the clear visor UV protected or not? The reason I ask is I'm looking to get prescription goggles/sunglasses w/transitional lenses but the transitional lenses do not darken if UV rays are blocked (as is the case with the windshield of a car). Feb 25, 2014

Mike D: I cannot tell you for sure if it 's UV protected or not. However my previous helmet was a HJC SYMAX , and I did wear sunglasses w/transitional lenses , and they did darken. When I purchased the RPHA Max that was one of my concerns, because I wear contacts, and my eyes are very sensitive to the sun. I was pleasantly surprised that the inner drop down sun shield works very well for me, as I have yet never needed the sunglasses. I have worn the helmet on a daily basis commuting home to work traveling Ea. In the morning, and West in the eve. Feb 25, 2014

David R: I have transitional lenses and they DO NOT darken however remember this helmet has the drop down visor with it so your glasses do not need to darken. I LOVE this helmet. I have had a few helmets and this one works great with not pushing on my glasses as some do. Feb 25, 2014

Ron L asked: I watched Anthony's video for this helmet and he mentioned speaker space being a bit tight. I am buying this for my wife. I have a Sena 20S which I was planning on installing into this helmet. Are the Sena 20s speakers low profile enough where they will not be banging into her ears?

willie s: I personally live this helmet. I primarily use a Bluetooth adapter connected to headphones for listening to music, gps, etc. I did mount some speakers in the helmet also, but the sound quality isn't the best(cheap speakers), but clearance was not too bad. I chose to remove a little Styrofoam to give slightly more clearance though. Very simple to do, and unnoticeable afterwards. Nov 27, 2014

John C: I have always worn Large helmets and I purchased this in a Large and it is very comfortable and there was no "break in" period. You will know immediately if it is too small, it hurts and makes you light headed. A tight fit is not bad if it does not cause pain. For the record I don't consider my Large a tight fit at all. I have a XL HJC helmet that came with a motorcycle and it is like a Darth Vader helmet, way too big. I hope that helps. Also, I have no complaints for this helmet in the cold, rain or heat of Texas. I would buy it again. Nov 18, 2014

UtahBill: I can't state that for sure, not having fitted your previous helmets to my head, but my head is more of an oval shape than round and this helmet fit my head really well out of the box. Most helmets place so much stress on my forehead that I have to work really hard to make them fit without crushing my forehead. Thus, this helmet is clearly an oval shape. What amazes me is that most of the people I know have oval-shaped heads yet most of the helmets I've tried on are round. Nov 5, 2012

Bao Duy T: As an owner of gtr HJC alpha max for 2 years now. I personally think that the alpha max has a more premium feel and construction to it. Owning 3 hjc helmet from least expensive to this one. The alpha max Is light weight, built better, even though I own the modular version. It's has less wind noise but after 80mph it's get a little more noticeable with wind noise but it's not much.
The sum visor is a plus. I alway use it during city rides or on a hot day. It's dark but not to dark where I can't see at night. It perfect to me. Blocks the sun and during a hot day, with it down and my visor up. It's keeps me cool.
I believe that it's worth every Penny cause trust me, you can't go cheap with something that protecting your head.
If your looking for something that solid and sturdy, I say go with the best. Hjc alpha max.

Mike D: I wear contact lenses, and my eyes are very sensitive to the sun, so I was very concerned about the inner shield being dark enough as well. Happy to say the inner shield works good for me. Most of my riding consists of commuting too, and from work going east on the way, and west on the way home. I've had the helmet for about 2yrs. and I am very satisfied with it.

Frank V: Hello,
I purchased the RPHA Max helmet in 2013 and I am extremely satisfied with it. I honestly do not know how much it weighs - but it is not heavy - It is extremely comfortable, relatively soundproof (motorcycle engines are just LOUD), and very reasonably priced. Actually, I bought two helmets - one that was recommended to me by a professional rider (and I did NOT want a sunshield because I wear glasses), and the RPHA Max. I purchased the RPHA Max because of the sunshield (for the other rider who does not wear glasses). It was a smart investment. I highly recommend the RPHA Max helmet. Safe riding!

Harland G: It is one of lighter modular helment. The aerodynamics really makes the difference. May 2, 2014

A shopper asked: Older HJC modulars allow you to open the chin bar despite the shield position. With the single hinge on this model, does the shield need to be closed to lift the chin bar? Oct 2, 2012

RevZilla: The faceshield does not need to be closed to open/raise the chinbar. For visual aid, see this YouTube video from HJC. Oct 2, 2012

A shopper asked: i really like the matt black helmets. ive been told by a local motorcycle shop that the matt does not reflect light and is very hot when riding in the summer, makes sense but wanted another opinion on it? Mar 2, 2015

Frank V: I love the helmet - and it does not get hot - the ventilation is exceptionally good. However, I have a candy apple red bike - so I got a matching helmet. My friend bought the same helmet in silver and says it does not get hot on a sunny day. So I would highly recommend the helmet - regardless of the color. Good luck. Safe travels. Frank Mar 2, 2015

Albert M: I purchased the PPHA max in matte black two years ago. This is now my go to helmet, I love it. As you I liked the matte and do not notice any difference from prior helmets I have owned when driving in the summer. Plenty of air flow through this helmet. Good luck on your purchase. Mar 7, 2015

A shopper asked: I heard HJC and Sena were getting together to make a BT setup to fit this or a similar helmet. The H-Talk. Is this an option? I really want a flip face that has integrated BT (Schuberth is the only other I have seen). Thanks. Apr 15, 2014

Arthur W: I am an actual customer. I don't work for HJC or Sena so I cant tell what they might be planning. Its a good Helmet though. I tried them all including the Schuberth and liked the RPHA the best. Apr 16, 2014
