HJC RPHA 70 ST Iron Man Motorcycle Helmet Review
The HJC RPHA 70 ST is a pinnacle in the field of sport and touring rides. It is because HJC’s RPHA 70 ST Iron Man helmet has the qualities of being lightweight, having an excellent airflow, and performs like a racing helmet, as well as having the comfort and quietness of a touring helmet. On top of that, it is one of the officially licensed Marvel products using the graphics of Iron Man, which really suits this helmet. As we discussed previously, the HJC IS-17 was used as the Iron Man helmet, which, in fact, was “a really remarkable helmet” and is still popular among the young motorcyclists who want to fulfill their passion of wearing an Iron Man helmet as a motorcycle helmet and enjoying the ride.
Both helmets are really amazing in their own ways. It’s as if HJC gave so much time on selecting “THE HELMET,” which was the perfect fit to become an Iron Man helmet.
Let’s get to the point and see what the capabilities of this helmet are! Besides, the HJC RPHA 70 ST is also the latest version of its predecessor the RPHA ST. So, it would be really exciting to see what the difference is this time?
As far as we know, HJC is always making improvements to their products and constantly try to make them better and better. And we have seen various examples so far.
As we previously mentioned, this helmet is good for the sport and touring riders. One of the reasons is the advanced shell construction of the HJC RPHA 70 ST helmet, which, by the way, is the Premium Integrated Matrix Plus (P.I.M Plus). This is a matrix of reinforced materials, such as carbon and carbon-glass hybrid fabric that provide enhanced shock-resistant performance, extra-comfort, and lightweight, which is required for both types of riding.
However, the HJC RPHA ST model is equipped with a P.I.M shell. So, as you can see, HJC took the shell construction to the next level, which explains the extremely strong shell and extra-comfort. To achieve this level, this helmet has gone through various rigorous tests for certification as a safety helmet. The results, all sizes from XS~2XL are DOT and ECE certified and have a 5-year warranty.
Face Shield & Visor
The HJC RPHA 70 ST has an integrated Anti-fog coated smoke tinted sun shield, which is controlled by a bottom-positioned newly operated system.
Unlike the spring-loaded noisy operation, HJC finally designed a new operating system, which is completely silent and quite easy to open and close by using the lever on the left side of the chin guard.
So, we believe this is a huge, positive step for HJC in making certain improvements. And we are happy to see that they also accomplished it.
The result is that you can quietly deploy it whenever you need and can fine-tune the positioning of the sun shield. Plus, it also includes a high-quality anti-fog insert lens.
A dual-purpose top vent is a reason why the ventilation system is so great in the HJC RPHA 70 ST Iron Man helmet.
The top intake and exhaust vent work in sync for full front-to-back airflow. The cool air passes from the top of the helmets and travels through the EPS and the excess heat is exited from the exhaust vent, which is located at the rear of the helmet. On the other hand, the chin vent allows cool air to enter and pass through the visor to the face area.
Plus, the top front and rear vent can be easily controlled for the level of airflow. The result, the noise level is also very low despite the lightweight of the helmet. So, if you don’t like earplugs then you won’t have to bother wearing them.
First, we talk about safety, which we can’t compromise, no matter what. And one feature is the E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick Release System). Most of you are familiar with this term since it’s generally used in motorcycle helmets of any class. It is an important system that allows a rider to safely and quickly release the cheek pads in an emergency situation. This emergency release kit (cheek pads) won’t add any additional harm to the rider’s current injuries.
So, there’s no way we can leave this out without mentioning this to you.
Anyways, now let’s talk about comfort because I have a feeling that you’re eager to know. So, for a rider’s comfort, HJC equipped the RPHA 70 ST with a Multi cool interior, which is an advanced anti-bacterial fabric providing enhanced moisture-wicking and quick-dry functions.
This fabric is skin-friendly and will not harm your skin in the case of excessive sweating. On the contrary, it will dissipate any kind of moisture from the cheek area and keep you clean and dry even for long periods during a long ride.
Oh, yeah, one more thing!
The cheek and crown pads are totally removable and washable. So, you can remove them for cleaning purposes whenever you see fit.

Safety Airflow Comfort Noise Value
There is no doubt that the HJC RPHA 70 ST Iron Man is a remarkable state-of-the-art helmet that has all the premium features to protect you for sports riding and provides extra comfort during touring rides. The only drawback that I see here is the cost of the HJC RPHA 70 ST helmet, which is quite high if you opt for the Iron Man graphics.
I couldn’t agree more. After all, it is an official licensed MARVEL product. So, stating the obvious, of course, it is going to be expensive.
But, if you look at the graphics then you will see that it is totally worth having an Iron Man motorcycle helmet even at this cost.
Nevertheless, the decision is up to you.
