Snug Fit
24 February 2024 by Melanie H
Have worn HJC helmets for many years and they are great quality. The RPHA 70 has the inner tinted visor, Pinlock and lots of vents but note they are snug fitting with the cheek pads being quite firm. Am hoping these will bed in with wear.
Great premium helmet

Great premium helmet, finish is quality and so is the design. Liner and foam feel plush and brand is reliable.

SBS service was 5* as always
Great helmet - Great fit

Good quality light helmet - I had an older HJC flip front before and like the brand HJC. This one seems really good with some nice features like the positive snap shut visor and the detail around the vents. Hoping it will be much quieter than my other helmets due to the good snug fit of the padding. Internal sunglasses have a nice actuation mechanism

A great helmet, quiet and comfortable
Good option for glasses wearers
05 December 2023 by Jack P
Very impressed with this helmet. I wear glasses and after removing the ear pads, they fit great. No issues when using the internal sun visor either. (Recommend removing breath guard if wearing glasses).
Feels very premium and worth it for the relatively low cost compared to the bigger name brands.
Great helmet as expected

What a great helmet an upgrade in a previous HJC - it's so quiet and fits perfectly snug. The visor mechanism is smooth and much easier to operate.. all round great helmet
HJC RPHA 70 Carbon
20 October 2023 by Neville G
Fantastic helmet, that is light and comfortable to wear all day. I recently did a 430 mile day while wearing this and got off the bike feeling like I'd never had a lid on my head.

I bought this to replace my Arai Dark Citizen lid, which cost far more, and although more plush inside, weighs a tonne.

The fit, finish and sound proofing are all good - this is my second HJC helmet and it won't be the last.

My Sena 50R intercom fitted easily and the speakers were far enough away from my ears to avid contact all day.

Overall, I am delighted with my new HJC.

Surprisingly, very, very good.

1st non Arai lid I have purchased in 20 years. £249 in the sale, feels more like a £500 helmet.
Very light, did a 6 hour ride with it on the 1st wear. Minimal neck ache. Vents are well placed and kept me cool in the heat. Visor mechanism is excellent and, came with a pinlock insert. The drop down sun visor is a revelation, so easy to use, great when filtering on a hot day.
The only thing I missed from my Tour X4 was the peak, riding west into late afternoon sun. That being said, if I went for a long ride today, I'd be grabbing the HJC. Great bit of kit.
Great helmet

Really like this helmet. Fits well with good ventilation.

SBS were really helpful in sizing too.
Looks and feels great, go up ONE SIZE
03 September 2023 by Nicholas S
My previous helmet was an HJC it was a comfortable fit at Large 59-60 (as all my helmets are), I bought this in same size and I nearly couldn't get it on my head, go one size up. I got XL and it's still snug but feels right. Lovely helmet the Matt finish looks amazing, the vents are really easy to use and all the materials are top quality. I've taken one star off because so far the pinlock hasn't worked very well and I can't seem to close the visor fully without steaming up, so I will have to try adjusting.
Great helmet

Third HJC I've bought. Highly recommended. Had problem with this Kate's one which Sportsbikeshop sorted impressively quickly.

HJC RPHA 70 Carbon
15 July 2023 by Steve A
I usually wear shoei or AGV so this purchase was a bit of a gamble for me.
Quality is good, nice and light and has a premium feel to it.
Fitting is quite snug compared to a shoei, so something to bear in mind. Not as quiet as I had hoped but better than my last modular helmet that let in too much noise.
Style: Reple Carbon Black
Comfortable and great value
12 July 2023 by Scott
This was a replacement for my RPHA-70 Gaon which my girlfriend dropped 15 months into its life…
This is a 'cheaper' version that I found but there is no compromise in quality, the comfort is perfect and the vents keep the lid nice and cool in the summer. The integrated pin lock and sun visor are great additions and I can wear my glasses without them becoming uncomfortable. I haven't quite worn it in yet but there are no pressure points and I haven't experienced any discomfort. I went for the same size as previously and it is a perfect fit as expected. I really like the matt titanium colour too. The only difference with the previous version is that the pin lock was already installed in the Gaon version but I did buy it from a different store. Changing the visors was simple instead of fitting the new pin lock.
Overall, 10/10, no complaints at all.

Great helmet

Very comfortable and quiet, build quality and materials great throughout. Upgraded from Shark helmet and while not a night and day difference it's well worth an upgrade if your budget allows.
Decent quality and comfort
30 June 2023 by Nicolae C
Only wore this one 4 or 5 times and the fit and comfort are spot on.

It is light being carbon fibre shell but unfortunately is not as soundproof as the reviews say.

Visor offers great visibility and the fact that it has that lock, once you close it you're sure that no matter how fast you go it will not open but the the top left vent doesn't really want to stay closed. It clicks when you open it but when you try to close it, it doesn't have that feel to it like the one on the opposite side has.
