There is a reason why HJC considered as a leading brand of motorcycle helmets. From top-to-bottom, there is something unique and common in HJC helmet series. Availability is also very important in helmet industry. Otherwise, it doesn’t matter how good a helmet is if it is not available on the market. But, HJC also stands in this category.
Today, we are giving you a review on HJC RPHA 10 Pro Helmet. This street helmet won many hearts. This street helmet comes with very cool designs and graphics which are perfect for young generation motorcyclists. Some may find this helmet a little costly. But, if you are not into graphics then you can choose solid models which are comparatively low.
Nevertheless, it is just an opinion. But, I believe once you go into the details of HJC RPHA 10 Pro, you will find it completely comfortable, reasonably quiet and worth of a single penny. On top of that, it meets the DOT and SNELL M2015 safety standards. So, without wasting any more time, let’s take a look at HJC RPHA 10 Pro Helmet Review.
HJC RPHA 10 Pro Helmet Review 2018
Shell Design & Protection Level
HJC RPHA 10 Pro comes in 4 graphic designs and 5 solid colors which are aerodynamically stable. It features Advanced P.I.M. (Premium Integrated Matrix) technology which you will only see in premium helmets. It is composite of Carbon fiber, aramid, fiberglass, and non-woven fabric which creates a very strong and lightweight shell which is specially designed for maximum impact absorption and superior fit. This quality makes HJC RPHA 10 Pro one of few lightweight full-face premium helmets to serve you in any circumstance.
HJC RPHA 10 Pro features AC-S (Advanced Channeling Ventilation System).
That means, maximum ventilation even in hot summers with temperatures around 90-95 degree Celsius. This AC-S helps you stay cool by flushing heat and humidity full front to back and up and out. For maximum airflow, the top venting system has 2 roller wheel to open and close the vent ports. All you have to do is control them as per your requirement. Once the air starts flowing, the helmet will fill with cool air.
But, don’t worry. It’s always open rear exhaust vent (diffuser) throw hot air from the helmet and maintain the airflow. In that way, you can control noise level and airflow in the helmet without any problem. However, the chin vent is not as effective as top vents. The horizontal vent is not too wide. On the contrary, the appearance is too small on the front of the chin bar.
So, overall the ventilation system of HJC RPHA 10 Pro helmet is quite good. But, it could be more effective.
Face Shield & Visibility
With HJC RPHA 10 Pro helmet nothing will get in your way. It has both wide and taller eye port. It will give you racing sports experience on the streets. Not just that it comes with Optically-Superior Pinlock 2D Flat-Racing Shield which gives 95% protection from Sun’s UV rays, anti-fogging system, and anti-scratch coating etc.
Innovative Center One-Touch Open/Close Locking System designed for the extremely secure seal. And for simple and quick tool-less removal and installation of the shield, it has the most effective RapidFire II Shield Replacement System which is very efficient.
SilverCool Plus Interior is the reason for an outstanding interior facility providing HJC in RPHA 10 Pro Helmets. This premium interior wicks away the moisture from the helmet and give you soft feel all day. SilverCool Plus is an advanced anti-bacterial fabric with Ginkgo extract. Moreover, the crown and cheek pads are totally washable and removable.
Anyways, the interior padding fit varies with different people. So, I would suggest you measure your head size to confirm right fit.
Notable Features: Ventilation, Interior, Lightweight
Best Suited For All-Time Use
One of the major plus points of HJC RPHA 10 Pro is it feels extremely light. It is one of lightest helmets out there. The interior is another factor that puts this helmet on the top. It has an immediately comfortable interior, unlike many other helmets. You can also remove and wash the crown and cheek pads. The ventilation is fantastic in there as well; the SilverCool interior is moisture wicking advanced anti-bacterial fabric that plays a significant role in keeping you cool in extreme heat. It has an Advanced Channeling Ventilation System meaning a full front to back airflow that flushes out heat and humidity, in order to keep your head cool.
Even though light, the matrix of carbon fiber, aramid, fiberglass and organic non-woven create a durable and remarkably protective shell which as we mentioned earlier is extremely lightweight. So, the helmet gets a heads up when it comes to safety as well. The RPHA-10 Pro Helmet is a more aggressive style helmet when compared to other helmets in the RPHA (Revolutionary Performance Helmet Advantage) family. It is an impressive piece, as there isn’t much negative to say about it. RPHA 10 Pro definitely gets a thumbs up from us.
