Great helmet for the price
Moving from HJC's CL-17 as my main helmet - the first thing that struck me is how light this helmet feels.

The fit was a bit tight, but this is a medium and I'm right between M and L - so I don't think this helmet is sized small. Also, unlike the CL-17, this model's medium and large size share the same shell - so if break-in isn't enough to loosen it up to a comfortable level, I can always swap out the liner and pads. So I decided to keep it and take to the roads, which I did.

The vents are a lot easier to find and manipulate than the small ones on the CL-17. The sun visor is easy to operate with a gloved hand also - though not as easily as the integrated sun-shield in the IS-33 (which uses a spring loaded slider along the crown of the head to deploy and a button to retract).

The fact that there is included a pin-lock insert in the box is awesome. Easy to install and it just works. No muss no fuss no fog.

While this helmet does seem to block out more engine and road noise than the CL-17 there is a lot more wind noise caused by the top vent. When I reached up to the vent with my hand, the noise stopped- but unfortunately the noise was the same whether the vent was closed or open once I took it away. Leaning forward into more of a 3/4 position did lessen the noise, but that's not going to work for me.

One of the main reasons I chose this helmet was it's billing as a touring helmet good for 3/4 to upright riding, so the wind-noise is a disappointment. I'd still recommend it though, in every other way, it fits the bill.

New rider's first helmet
I finished the motor cycle safety course and knew I had to get a good helmet before heading out on the roads on my own. It was tempting to get the cheapest model, especially not knowing it I was going to stick with the sport. I read lots of reviews on many helmets and decided that going up a notch in quality and cost was going to be worth it. I've only been on the road a few times, but I have to say, I barely noticed I was wearing a helmet, so that must be a good sign! Very light, comfortable, and a wide range of vision. I didn't really get going fast enough to comment accurately on air flow and noise. So far I'm happy with my choice.

Boom, here's your bang for the buck!
I purchased this helmet based on certain criteria but mostly due to my desire for an internal sun visor. After considering the Shark Speed-R, Nolan N86 and Shoei GT Air, I ultimately went with HJC's RPHA ST. My decision was based on a review from a UK supplier called Two Wheel Centre (see their YouTube video). The RPHA ST is also the test-winner of the new MOTORRAD Magazine helmet test, in front of such prestigious models like the Schuberth S2, X-lite X-702 GT and Shark Speed-R. I've ridden nearly 400 miles with it now and can say that it's a very comfortable and well-made helmet. My only gripe would be that there is significant wind noise while at freeway speed, even with earplugs. I'm assuming that the noise is coming from the unusual side air foils, which help vent the helmet very well. The external shield is high-quality and crystal-clear and the internal sun visor is sufficiently smoked for me. All in all it's a great helmet, despite the wind noise, considering it's a couple of hundred less than its comparable alternatives. Once ordered, they had it to me the very next day... thanks for the great customer service Revzilla!

Lots of features but not bluetooth communicator friendly.
I am pretty happy with this helmet. Looks good and the HJC's have always given me a good fit. Great thing is that you get the pin lock shield included inthe box. Also the integrated sun shield is very helpful . No need to change glasses for sunny days/night riding. My only gripe and it's a decent one is that this is not a good helmet if you plan on setting up a bluetooth comm. system. For a helmet that is advertised as a sport touring helmet you would think they would give you deeper pockets by your ears to fit speakers. I had a pair of U Clear speakers and they did not fit. When I slid the helmet on my ears would bend over from rubbing against the speakers. The Sena speakers seem much thinner so maybe they will work.

Overall a decent helmet
I upgraded to the RPHA ST from my IS-16. I'll compare the two now.

Pros: I love the included pinlock shield and center locking mechanism! It is more of a round oval which gave me that little bit extra room so my Scala Rider mic is not pressing against my face like with the IS-16. The internal visor works differently than the one in the IS but works effectively and the stock tint is fine for my rides in and out of sun/shade.

Cons: I personally don't feel extra air flow over the IS-16. I do get blasted with air with my stock bike screen though so some air comes up into the helmet from there vs through the RPHA's vents. The lever for the visor is smaller and on the side, a bit harder to access with gloves compared with the center lever on the IS-16. I'm sure they moved the lever to try to improve airflow. No cut-outs for comm speakers. Padding feels thinner. Worst aspect for me is the deep groove the forehead pad leaves on my forehead for hours after wearing it. There is a large horizontal seam through the middle of the thin pad. I mostly commute to work and would prefer to look 'normal' soon after the ride. Maybe it is a badge of honor.

Overall it is a decent helmet. If I didn't need the more oval shape, though, I would have tried the IS-17 and paid for the pinlock upgrade which would have saved a few dollars.

Great Bang for the Buck!
For the money you really can't ask for any better. Purchased this to upgrade from my intro level Bell Arrow, and it's much more aerodynamic and quiet. Also wanted the internal sun visor so I wouldn't have to switch out the lenses on longer rides and it works like a charm. I was looking at this helmet and the Shoei GT-Air because it's hard to find a high quality, truly functional full face with the internal sun visor in the lower price ranges and now that I've put some miles on it I'm happy with my choice and the amount of money I was able to save running with the HJC as opposed to the much more expensive Shoei. No complaints!

Great Helmet
I was looking at a lot of the cheaper alternatives to this helmet but quickly realized it was worth the money. I love this helmet, it fits great is quiet, but haven't worn it going over 60 mph yet. great air flow. I would recommend this to others.

Nice upgrade from my entry-level helmet
I'd purchased an HJC CL-16 about two years prior, and am happy that I've upgraded to this RPHA and retire the CL-16 for passengers.

I've been commuting and taking a few 2-3 hour rides on the weekend, and overall have been happy. It beats my previous helmet in every category and I enjoy the center latch for the visor and drop down shades.

The fit is more snug than I'm used to, but I believe it'll loosen a little once I break in the cheek pads a little bit.

Got the blue reflective shield to complete the look - love it.

I wanted more of an oval helmet for my head shape and really liked my HJC IS-16 with internal sunscreen but it was getting old and didn't have enough room for the Scala Rider mic inside the helmet. The RPHA ST gained me that extra room and still provided the internal sunscreen (plus it came with the Pinlock shield included!). Downside: the inner liner has a massive seam along the forehead which leaves a dent for several hours (even after only 20 min of helmet use).

First it is for my girlfriend so I wanted her to have the most comfortable helmet and with my comparison between the rpha-st and the is-17 I felt this one would be the better choice. Safety and reliability are important so I made my choice based on that as well.

I'm trying to decide between the RPHA ST and the less expensive IS-17. One of the main complaints from reviewers of the IS-17 is that the internal sun shield isn't dark enough. Have you found the shield on the RPHA ST to be adequate? I wear prescription glasses/sunglasses and I'm trying to eliminate the switching.

More generally, if anyone has cross-shopped the IS-17 and RPHA ST, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: This is probably a very late answer, I can't see when the question was asked.

I ride with a mirror shield so it has a light tint inherently. I've got semi-sensitive eyes so the internal sun shield was a must for me. I find myself riding about half the time with the internal sun shield. The combination of the two is like a nice pair of sunglasses but the tinting on the sun shield itself is about equal to a light-tint visor as opposed to the dark tint ones
