HJC RPHA 11 Pro Helmet [Review]
The HJC RPHA 10 and its predecessor, the RPS 10, may have both been huge successes but wait until you see what the HJC RPHA 11 Pro helmet has in store for you! Yes, your guess is as good as mine. HJC’s motorcycle helmets just keep getting better! You might be wondering how something so wonderful like the RPHA 10 can be further improved but that’s exactly what HJC did with the RPHA 11. Are you ready to learn what makes this helmet the cream of the crop? Let’s start by taking a closer look at what it has to offer.
HJC RPHA 11 Pro Helmet: What Makes It Tick?
Any avid motorcyclist will agree that the RPHA 11 Pro has what it takes to make every ride an adventure of a lifetime. It took all the good features of the RPHA 10 and tweaked it some more to come up with a more finely tuned helmet designed to thrill the most serious sport and track-day enthusiast.
So, is it merely an updated version of the RPHA 10 Pro? Well, no. The HJC RPHA 11 Pro helmet is an entirely new helmet with features fit for even the most elite motorcyclist, and is DOT and ECE approved for your ultimate safety. What else do you get when you decide to get yourself one of these gems? Here’s a quick rundown of its features.
When you first try the RPHA 11 Pro on, you’ll notice that it is lighter than most motorcycle helmets. This is because it is made from a unique blend of carbon fiber, fiberglass and aramid. But don’t let its lightweight nature fool you. The RPHA 11 Pro is as solid as it gets and can deliver extreme performance at maximum speeds, thanks to its advanced PIM+ (Premium Integrated Matrix Plus) fiberglass aerodynamic structure. It also features an improved rear spoiler design to further improve its overall aerodynamic performance.
The RPHA 11 Pro comes in 3 shell sizes (XS-S, M-L, and XL-XXL) and is available in solid colors (black, white and semi-flat titanium) and in several colorful graphic variations (e.g. Spiderman, Riberte, Venom and Star Wars).
The RPHA 11 Pro features an optically correct, Pinlock-ready, eyeglass- and sunglass-friendly 2D face shield for better visibility and UV protection. It utilizes Rapidfire II Shield Replacement System to safely secure the shield while providing fast, easy and tool-less installation and removal, and has an enhanced shield dual lock system to provide better protection during high speed racing conditions. As an added bonus, it comes with clear and dark smoke shields, and an anti-fog insert to prevent precipitation from forming on the face shield.
Unlike other racing-oriented helmets which provide a slightly narrow fit, this helmet has a more neutral internal shape that comfortably fits most rider head shape. Its advanced MultiCool interior guarantees that you’ll stay cool and be virtually sweat- and odor-free! The helmet also features fully removable and washable cheek pads which are interchangeable throughout all shell sizes, built-in communication speaker pockets, breath guard and chin curtain.
To further improve the ventilation system in the HJC RPHA 11 Pro helmet, HJC optimized the shell design and added two mouth vents and a forehead vent in the design. The RPHA 11 Pro is the perfect motorcycle helmet for hot and humid days. With its Advanced Channeling Ventilation System (ACS), flushing heat and humidity out is literally a breeze!
The HJC RPHA 11 Pro helmet may cost more than the average HJC helmet but considering all the great features that come with it, it can easily beat most high-end helmets – for less the cost!
