HJC RPHA Max Helmet - Solid 4.3 5 31 31
Light, Comfortable, But Noisy Outstanding light weight and shape reduces buffeting at highway speeds over 70. Very comfortable on long rides. Only complaint is the noise level. Even with the vents closed it is noisier than the HJC-CL Max it replaced. Went to the Revzilla Phila store to buy the helmet which was an enormous help. Staff there was wonderful, and really helped with my numerous purchase needs, most importantly the correct helmet fit and selection. April 5, 2014
HJC RPHA Max is very light and low profile The HJC RPHA Max modular is a perfect fit for my intermediate oval head and is very lightweight for a modular. It has a low profile and all the button features are easy to use at speed. The top head vent works incredibly with moving air without noticeable noise. The chin vent however, did create some wind noise when open but did its job at ventilation. The view is uninstructed and the shield is simple to changeout. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the features, weight and price. March 31, 2014
Excellent helmet After long winter and absence of riding, I did decide to retire my 10 years old modular helmet, which is serve me very well, and we have some miles to talk about. I know, there is recommendation to replace helmet every 3-4 years, but in my personal opinion that is a bit over rated, but 10 years for helmet is nice age. Once again this is my personal choice, and you guys should follow MSF recommendations. Did my research ( Thank you Antony from Revzilla TV ) and decide to go with HJC RPHA MAX. Just unpacking helmet there is feel of luxury. Helmet finish and details are flawless. I did have previously HJC 3/4 helmet and it was XL , so i ordered XL size and fit and feeling was outstanding . Nice snug fit without pressure points. Last week went for ride and surprised how quiet is comparing to my previous helmet, Great comfort and feel during a ride, vision is clear and wide. tinted drop down sun visor come handy, and didn't interfere with my eye glasses at all. Ventilation of the helmet is great. during a ride i did give a try of ventilation system. There is 2 vents one on chin bar and one is scoop like on top. both of vents did great job Top vent is generating some additional noise, but i can feel steady stream of fresh air taking heat out. During a ride ten was in 60's and I will give update once heat come back to Chicago !! After ride I did install helmet speakers for some tunes. and thats only thing I wish HJC is left more room for speakers installation, but i have a bit ticker speakers( Iasus 3D ) for better bass response, and don't get me wrong there is plenty of room for other brand speaker install. I may consider new set of speakers in future. Overall great helmet great "Bang for Buck" . Lot of premium features for 1/2 of price of German competitor, well, I will let you know in 10 years how is helmet doing. March 23, 2014
Superb helmet! Fit/finish - Along the lines of the "premium" brands but not as good as the "most expensive modular". Snug fit (good thing). No buffeting and no wobbling with a head check. Tight cheek pads but that's a good thing. Fits well in the crown. Weight - Lighter than I expected. Even lighter than my previous 3/4 helmet. Also, very well balanced. No complaints. Noise - HJC claims 2db louder than the "most expensive modular". I think they're being overly optimistic. I'd say about average for a semi-premium modular. (I've worn quieter and much louder.) I can still hear the stereo well although it's a bit muddled (to be expected with any modular/full face lid). Drop down sun visor - Optically correct but not nearly dark enough. HJC sells 3 different versions (smoke, dark smoke and amber). This comes with the smoke. I'm about to pay $22 for the dark smoke. Pinlock shield - 38* and no visor fogging even when I took it directly from the 70* house to 38* highway speeds. Impressive. Sun visor didn't fog, either. The locking, center mounted closure is handy (and simply unlocking it gives you a good vent to defog the eyeglasses in town) but it's difficult to use with heavy gloves on. Simple and easy with normal (3 season) gloves. Double D ring closure - Mixed feelings about this. Because of the extra neck roll padding (to reduce turbulence/noise), it's a bit difficult to fasten and the snap for the excess strap is worthless as you just can't get to it. I'd much prefer a ratchet closure like Nolan has. Eyeglass friendly - The helmet is too tight (good thing) to easily put on/remove with glasses on. Easier to remove the glasses, put the lid on then put the glasses back on. Fortunately, HJC has made it very easy to do so. I've bent more than a few glasses trying to fit them on after the helmet was on. No problem with this one. Air flow/cooling - I can't comment on that as it's still in the 30s. Overall, I'd say this is a very good, semi-premium helmet. My only real complaints are noise and double D ring closure. For $400+, it should be a little quieter. March 9, 2014
Expensive but feel it's worth the investment I spent more on this helmet than I had initially planned, but when I started shopping around I felt a versatile lightweight helmet that offered the protection of a full face was worth the investment. The matte black is very sharp and the helmet is quality made. We're still in the depths of winter where I live but plan on road testing it soon. The helmet fits extremely well. I'm sure you can spend a lot more but for me this was a great value. The helmet is DOT rated but I don't believe it's Snell rated. Revzilla rocks...good prices, great selection, fast shipping, and great customer service -- Get one today! February 24, 2014
Great value for the dollar Had my first long ride with this new helmet. I am a medium to long oval and this fit very well. It was snug / tight but not in an uncomfortable way. Rode for about 5 hours in all and never felt uncomfortable. Relatively quiet and I noticed significantly less buffeting from my old Shoei. Top vent really lets the air flow. If I had to pick about something, It seems to have slightly less height of view in visor, plenty of view side to side. There is a little distortion when using the sun visor. December 23, 2013
Ouch - for long ovals I have the long oval head shape and have a 5-year old Arai Profile, so I figured it was time to get something new. I had HJC's cheapest modular helmet years ago, so thought I'd try this upscale version. In case I had to return it, I wore it around the house with the tags a few times. Seemed comfy, so I took it on a 2-day ride. Day 2 made clear -- this helmet hurts, with pressure points at the forehead and thin padding up top. The internal sun visor was so distorted that I found myself making any excuse to not use it. It is a good value for a modular helmet -- it just doesn't fit my Arai Profile / Signet-Q head type, feels heavy (maybe because it has to carry its weight awkwardly as a modular) and the sunscreen makes things look wonky. Finding a long-narrow helmet with a sunscreen probably is not going to happen for me. Back to sweet, expensive, but comfortable, Arai. November 4, 2013

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.

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

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
