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!

Lightweight Helmet With Great Features
I purchased this helmet as a replacement for a Shark Evoline - I know that they're very different. I was focused on getting a substantially lighter helmet that would still have the drop down sun visor - or some similar sun blocking feature - and an effective means of preventing fogging.
The sunvisor isn't as dark as I would like, but it does remove the glare well and allows it be deployed a little later into the evening than normal. The mechanism is solid and the coverage is great!
The pinlock system is AMAZING! I've tried to make this system fog and I can't. In fact, the only fog that forms is on the sunvisor, not the main shield. Watch the instructional video on how to install the pinlock system and it should be fairly easy.
Other good features are that the shield engagement and lock is positive and easy to operate. The vents are effective and also easy to operate. The shield disengagement mechanism is also very user friendly. It also worked well for me with a Sena SMH10R Intercom. There was plenty of room for the speakers.
The only negatives I have are somewhat subjective. The rubatone matte black gets oily really easily when handled but that's to be expected. When I fitted my intercom system into the helmet, a couple of the snaps for the liner on the helmet side seem to be coming loose from taking the liner in and out. This is the only quality escape I've noticed though. When I first tried the helmet on, there were a couple pressure points at the rear #where the snaps are) and a little pressure at the front) probably because my head isn't as round as I thought. After wearing it for a couple hours in the house, leaving it over night then trying it the next day, I found that it already started to break-in. It seems like the helmet has a considerable amount of break-in give.
Overall I couldn't find another helment with these features in this price range. I'm very impressed.

At the latest test of the magazine MOTORRAD regarding sportive full-face helmets for sports-touring riders HJCâ??s premium model RPHA ST performs as best and became test-winner in front of such prestigious models like Schuberth S2, X-lite X-702 GT and Shark Speed-R.
