Initial Impression: HJC RPHA-10 helmet

At the last CMRA round, my old HJC-fs15s helmet was "aged-out." Ok, fine, I bought it on clearance 4 years ago for $150. Time for a new helmet. As i've had good luck with the fit of HJC helmets (as posed to, say, KBC at the same price point...nothing wrong with these helmets they're just shaped differently), I decided to replace it with another HJC.

I ordered an HJC RPHA-10 as a replacement. SIGNIFICANTLY more than my clearance-priced previous helmet, but still not quite shoei/arai territory. As a racer, I probably should care more about my head, but I just can't stomach crash-and-replace $700 lids.

I must say, this is a much, much nicer helmet than my previous HJC. It's more comfortable as far as the padding goes, and so much lighter that I thought I was shipped an empty box!

I'll update this thread after I've warn it for a few trackdays.
A motorcycle is a joy machine. It's a machine of wonders, a metal bird, a motorized prosthetic. It's light and dark and shiny and dirty and warm and cold lapping over each other; it's a conduit of grace, it's a catalyst for bonding the gritty and the holy.

Love and have worn the RPHA-10 since release around November of 2012. I absolutely love it and it doesn't cost as much as Shoei or Arai's, but gives you plenty of bang for your buck. Highly recommend and now a good amount of my fellow riders use it. You are right about the weight, it's even lighter than the newly released Shoei RF1200! The RPS-10 is what started it all. =) Glad you are happy with your purchase.
