HJC RPHA Max Helmet - Solid 4.3 5 72 72
Great fit and air flow -About 4000 mi. this summer with HJC. -Air flow is the best of the 5 helmets I've owned, I often use only the top vent (I can actually feel the airstream on my scalp when I open the vent). I only use the front vent when the inner shield is down, it directs air into my eyes drying them out. -Fit is great as well, it fits my skull perfectly, no hard or hot spots. It does tend to press on my left ear, but it hasn't seemed to cause a problem even after 800 mile touring days. -Hinge action is very smooth and controlled, but annoyingly, I cannot latch the front without using a hand on both the front and rear of the helmet. The latch mechanism also appears to be rather frail. I'm hoping not to test this feature. -the face shield is very long (tall), I put a couple of rows of black electrical tape at the top as a sunguard and still have ample visibility. -The inner shield works well, but is not very dark. I purchased the dark tinted visor and can use it and the inner shield together and see fine during our Texas summer days. I am able to minimize the light gap at the bottom of the inner shield by holding the release button as I slide the lever to put it into removal mode. The electric tape sunshield blocks the small gap of light at the top. -Shield changes are easy. I like the locking shield feature. -Wind noise is similar to other helmets with top vent open, reduced some with it closed. -I purchased and installed thinner cheek pads to allow more ear and cheek room. September 8, 2015
Great airflow, louder than expected Pros: - Airflow is beyond compare; huge difference between vents open and closed - Good fit - Chin curtain keeps face warm on cold rides Cons: - Louder than advertised; I use earbuds to silence the wind noise - Chin curtain must be removed on warm days or the heat is painful Overall: a good helmet at a great price, I would buy it again September 3, 2015
Great Helmet with a Few Quirks This is a GREAT helmet. I find it extremely comfortable to wear all (I've spent 17 hours in a single day in it with zero complaints), it looks great, breathes well, and has some good features like the pinlock sheild and sun visor. It's very light, especially for a modular, and very quiet. There's no ear pockets for a headset, which seems like a ridiculous oversight in this segment. I had to cut some of the impact liner away to fit my speakers in, which means the sound has to travel through the cheek pad and chin strap. With the volume maxed out on my Sena headset it's just adequate at highway speeds. The other issue is riding in the rain. I can't figure out where it comes from, but water splashes all over my chin and face when in the rain. I have tried covering any seam, vent, chin opening I can find, and it still happens. It will splash on the inside of the visor as well. This means if you wear glasses (like me), you'll have water droplets on 3-4 surfaces to try and look through, and you can only wipe one clean.

Big Improvement over previous helmet I purchased the RPHA Max to replace my Scorpion EXO900 which was showing signs of age by some of the plastic pieces breaking. Decided on the RPHA Max after reading reviews on several sites and watching the videos. I wanted the PinLock feature and also wanted to return to the top-mounted sun-visor control. I wear a size Large normally and that's what I ordered but was a bit concerned that reviews said this helmet ran small as I am on the high end of the Large sizing chart for this helmet (23 1/4) but it fit perfectly. The latching mechanism is night and day more precise and easier to open and close than the Scorpion and the front locks with just a "snick" rather than the "clunk" of the Scorpion. It was so easy and smooth that I wasn't sure I had it latched properly. The top vent works great and I can feel airflow over the top of my head even at lower speeds. I don't feel a lot of airflow from the front vent though. Visibility is very good, I haven't installed the PinLock yet but even without it the shield does not fog as easily as the Scorpion did. The black latch in the center of the shield is a bit distracting if you ride with the shield in a higher position but not terrible and not very noticeable at all in the closed or city (slightly open) position. There are no recesses for helmet speakers but I didn't consider that a bad thing as they generally aren't placed optimally for my ear position anyhow. I installed the SENA SMH10 with no problems and cannot feel the helmet speakers at all. This helmet is WAY more quiet than the Scorpion was. My nit-picks are that the sun visor is not dark enough. Seriously it's difficult for me to tell whether it's even down sometimes. Also I am a little paranoid that the rear vent holes just go straight through to the interior with no screening/mesh to cover them and look like an ideal place for a bee to crawl into. But I've had a previous "bee-in-helmet" experience so maybe I'm just over-sensitive to that. I blocked them on the inside with some adhesive backed mesh anyhow. It didn't seem to affect the airflow. Overall very pleased but it loses a star for the sun visor and the vent holes. August 10, 2015
Interesting Helmet I bought this helmet as an option for a second rider. I ended up wearing this a bit to break it in. I found it a bit tight after multiple rides and then noisy. At first it was fine and now its not. Overall not a bad helmet. The look is awesome and being modular is a plus. I normally wear and Arai XD helmet which is by far my favorite. Overall not bad, just not really for me. September 14, 2015
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. September 7, 2015
A Good Starter Modular This is my first proper helmet since starting riding, and it felt really good. However, as the days went on, I realised more and more small issues with it, though none being dealbreakers. Earphones cutouts were a little too small and shallow and a tad high up, pressing on my temples after fitting a Sena 20s. Small adjustments solved that. After a full year of use, mechanism becomes a little cranky but still very usable and it was not noticed until a change to a new higher-end modular. Love the sun visor with the snap release for a quick keep of it entering tunnels. Shield and lens-locking mechanism is very smooth and intuitive. Overall a good modular for new riders to have a feel and enter the market on modulars at a lower price point. July 20, 2015
Priced right for a quality helmet The RPHA-Max is slightly higher priced than most of the HJC line up, but some features are worth paying extra for. Better composite material (carbon fiber and fiberglass epoxy), lightweight, great ventilation, quiet noise level, wide range of vision, pinlock shield (comes with helmet),chin curtain, and overall comfort. I justify paying the increased price of the helmet due to the fact that it was noticeably lighter than the Sy-Max III (which was the original helmet of choice- with previous helmet being the Sy-Max II). Improvements could still be made to the RPHA Max--better cut out area for in-helmet speakers and a sun visor with less distortion. Overall, you are getting a well made, lightweight helmet, priced considerably less than high end name brand helmets. And yes, I would purchase this helmet again. July 6, 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

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.

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

Bill H: Be careful
My good fitting HJC IS-MAX XL is 61 - 62 cm where for whatever reason the max modular is 60 - 61.. that's 3/8 " smaller.

Of course in HJC world XL does not = XL

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.

Can't answer your other questions.

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

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.

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.

Bao 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. I have taken a few road trips consisting 4 to 500 miles a day with it, and had no negative issues I would recommend it. Sep 6, 2014

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
