Up date from 3 years ago
1st I had to replace the one I reviewed 3 years ago because the Harley fell on it. It appeared to have only cosmetic damage but in a few weeks things quit working right and upon investigation I found several critical fasteners had been damaged rendering it unuseable although I found no fault in the helmet shell. So after over 60 K miles, 3 liner replacements, and no incidents the RPHA MAX is heading to Alaska this summer. I found a plastic lubricant that solved the sticky gear plate issue and checking for loose fasteners when relining the helmet seems to keep things working. I bought an extra pin lock lens and 2 outer shields and all are still serviceable. The venting works well with the padding for cooling. The negatives, air flow over the inside face is not good enough as I still have fogging issues at times in the rain Once a pin lock broke on one side when riding in high wind and heavy rain. Easy to fix, unsettling when it happened. Overall good value, plenty of features, and I would recommend this helmet.

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.

Tried to kill me
Do not buy this helmet if you ride a naked bike in wet weather, i loved this helmet until I went from my K1200RS to a F800R, riding home in the rain it flows right into the lock clip for the visor, getting water on the inside of the shield, and then the air pushes it in continuously and can get road water into your eyes, this almost caused me to crash. Very disappointed in HJC for this, should have found this defect during testing.

Small and light, perfect for small heads!
After searching for a modular helmet that is significantly lighter than fiberglass models and doesn't make me look like a bobble-head doll yet still contains the features I want, I have finally found it in the HJC RPHA Max Helmet.

My previous helmet was a Scorpion Exo900, bought because a representative at Scorpion assured me that it was manufactured in 3 shell sizes and I thought it would be a smaller profile. Nope, same big profile and even heavier! Also, it came down too far on my head, so the ear pockets were too low.

Fast forward 2 years to purchasing the HGV RPHA Max from Revzilla. I tried it on at a dealership in size Small, so I knew I'd need an Extra Small. This helmet fits my tiny head (hat size 6 7/8, head circumference at forehead 21.5 inches (55cm). The width and length of the helmet fits perfectly, ear pockets in exactly the right place, smooth function of the modular front, integrated "sunglasses" behind the visor, and about TWO POUNDS LIGHTER than any other modular helmet I have worn.

Regarding the low profile of this helmet:
* 8" across the widest part of the front (eye level) of the helmet with the modular face open. The Exo900 is an inch wider
* When the face mod is flipped up, the helmet is still a full inch shorter than the Exo900
* 22. 5 inches measured from the padding at eye level, run around the back of the helmet to the padding at the other eye. Essentially, a partial circumference measurement and again 1" shorter than the Exo900.

Not only do I NOT look like a bobble head doll when riding anymore, but also riding with a much lighter carbon fiber helmet makes my neck feel much better. If you have herniated discs in your neck, too, the HGV RPHA Max will ease the stress due to it's feather weight.

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

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.

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.

Best lid I ever owned.
I previously only purchased low cost helmets...I mean...why pay more if a helmet is DOT approved ?*
*Stupid question I know...don't flame me A hole!
8^)

I recently had an insurance settlement for a motorcycle accident with a cager, so I had some extra cash. As part of the deal they retired my helmet and put me in the market for a new one.
Price:
I ride my bike almost daily...so this time I thought I'd finally drop some coin on a quality helmet. I found the HJC RPHA Max and it has all the features that interest me at a reasonable price.
Fit:
Nice snug fit wih the cheek pads and the neck padding keeps noise down. Nice secure feeling.
Cooling:
When you open the vents you can feel it trying to suck your hair right out of the vents! Awesome.
Shields:
The front face shield is latched/unlatched easily with a gloved hand but my favorite feature is the integrated sun shield...It got real old paying $30 for a mirrored face shield every two months with my previous helmet. I have at least 10 shields laying around that used to have the mirror coating on them. Thats almost the cost of a new helmet. A slide on the top of the helmet brings the sun shield down and a spring loaded button to easily retract it. The integrated sun shield is protected from road debris by the primary shield and I expect the sun shield will last the life time of the helmet....keeping money in my pocket! Fantastic!
Style:
This is my first modular helmet and is an excellent convenience! Smooth lines...you can't even tell it's a modular.
Weight:
It's crazy light weight! which saves on muscle aches after extended rides. There isn't any head stability issues with wind buffetting at speed.
Visibilty:
Large area of view even when turning your head to look behind before making a lane change.
Noise:
I gave it a 4 out of 5 for noise cancelling...I thought my previous helmet was a 2!...so I am very happy with the 4.
Summary:
Now I never had a Schuberth so I can't compare it to the RPHA MAX, but compared to the low end helmets I had before, this is the shat!

HJC RPHA MAX, hj-25 smoke shield, and quick releasae
Great people to deal with! RPHA seemed slightly small returned for the next size larger NO PROBLEMS. Rather than wait for the return I was permitted to buy anothed RPHA and when the return process was completed my credit card was credited with in hours This company will go the extra mile for their customers,which is why I keep returning. This is really a great helmit for the money, with many great features. Especially the ease in which the inner liner can be removed for cleaning. I would highly recommend this product!

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.

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.

I have used several other HJC helmets including ATV, street motorcycle and Snowmobile, all in size XL, which works well for me. Should I expect the RPHA in XL to be sized the same shape and fit?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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 ?.
A shopper on Dec 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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).
thomas s on Feb 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
As I know there are logos "R" or "HJC" on RPHA Max helmets. Is it "R"? I think it looks better.
A shopper on Feb 24, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It is an R - but it can be peeled off without leaving any glue residue. Looks VERY clean and slick without the logo.
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? I am spoiled by my Nolan N104 which had perfectly sized cutouts... Don't want the speakers pressing against her ears all the time!
Ron L on Nov 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Hello… I've read here and there that the size runs a bit small so my question is how small does it run if it does at all? I am very comfortable in my Arai Corsair V- size L… will this one fit true to size similar to my Arai? Any input would greatly be appreciated!
Mark H on Nov 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm a large in Arai and a large with the RPHA too.
I'm struggling to decide between the HJC IS17 and the HJC RPHA MAX Evo 2014 model. why should I pay more to get the RPHA? Is it worth it? any comparison possible between these models? Is the internal sun visor darker enough and if not, can it be changed to a darker one?

BEST ANSWER: 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.
how much does this helmet weight?

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?

BEST ANSWER: The faceshield does not need to be closed to open/raise the chinbar. For visual aid, see this YouTube video from HJC.
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?

BEST ANSWER: 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
