HJC RPS-10 Review - September 25, 2013, 10:12 AM

So I was always a little skeptical about going back to an HJC helmet since I didn't really like my first one but after trying one of these on a few months ago, I thought I'd give them another shot. So I bought the RPS-10 Ben Spies Monster Replica the other day for $305 shipped which I thought was a pretty solid price. Today was the maiden voyage as I was going to ride to work today.


Fitment:
To me, it seems to fit somewhat similarly to the RF-1100 in terms of head shape. It's nice and snug but the padding is evenly spread and doesn't push in any one area. The cheek pads pull out enough to give a good fit and doesn't move in high wind.


Ventilation:
One word, amazing. I have never had a helmet which actually channels in air over the top of my head better than this one. Also, the chinbar vents do a great job of allowing air in to de-fog the visor incredibly quickly once moving.


Visibility:
Much better than my AGV K-3, Scorpion EXO-700, etc.


Weight:
Lightest helmet I've ever put on my head. Even lighter than my AGV which is supposed to be one of the lightest out there because it's not SNELL 2010 certified.


Overall Impression:
Great lid! If you're looking for a decently priced, incredibly light helmet that is really quiet considering the ventilation it has, go for this one.

I have gone through a lot of helmets and by far in terms of performance and comfort, the RPS-10 is my absolute favorite by far. BTW, the RPHA-10 and the RPS-10 are basically the same, only a change in name and graphics.

Surprisingly good for how much ventilation this helmet gives.
