Verified Customer Reviews for HJC R-PHA 90S
This is a great lightweight and quiet helmet. For me the medium size worked again, the size I'd had in previous HJC helmets. Not a problem with the visor, stays open for me at any speed, but I have a large wind deflector. My first carbon helmet and it doesn't disappoint. Definitely worth the extra splurge.
Best lid I've had so far, fast delivery excellent
Great looking and functional only drawback is visor that closes to easy like to ride with it open high ish speeds it closes down.
Having had a HJC helmet in a large this one was tighter so had to go for an XL. Easy to do with SBS free returns and no quibble refunds! I'm impressed with the lid, lightweight and I feel it's quieter than my previous one. Put a tinted visor on to complete the look. Was able to fit a bluetooth headset without any bother and quickly. Chin strap and other features are easy to use. Just watch out for the visor lock it needs a press to engage properly and can get locked with the lock switch, which can be fiddly to open when riding. Other than that I'm really pleased with it.
Nice helmet, especially in blue carbon, very light and quiet, some good features.
Sized slightly smaller than other manufacturers.
Interior not as plush as my X-lite helmet.
Fantastic looking helmet, great quality and so far very pleased with my purchase. I fitted my existing Cardo no problem and it works fine. SBS great customer service as always.
Most of know that different helmet makes suit different head shapes....this is my 3rd HLC and once again is a super comfortable fit. It's quiet too, and the Carbon model very stylish. Flip front works well and visor operation is better than my previous HJC.
Balkan Carbon Blue. Great looking light to wear modular helmet. Lift control easy to use and positive in operation. Peripheral vision is superb, almost as good closed as open. Because it is set up internally to accept a SENA intercom the fitting of my SENA 50C camcom was a doddle. Do check your head size and look at sizing. Fit for me is perfect - my head measurement is 57cm precisely and an M is a very comfortable but very snug fit - might be too snug for a 58 head..
I purchased to use for touring this summer, my other helmets are full face,. To my surprise it has instantly become my favourite lid
Bought HJC RPHA 90s as a replacement for well used 6yr old Helmet. Quality and fit is great and fitted my old Cardo Freecom 4 without any issues.
Excellent service from SBS!
I am so impressed with this helmet. Bought to replace Schuberth C4 Pro which was too tight and uncomfortable. This helmet is light, super comfortable, surprisingly quiet and easy to use. The mechanisms to open the face cover is easy to use. The visor has a metal button. This is also easy to use with gloves on. The sun visor is easy to locate and operate with gloves as well as the vents on the helmet. The helmet is prepared for comms use. The neck/chin blanket is excellent. Works so well and secured in place. This stays out when lifting the face shield and closing it. What I am impressed with most is the comfort. Both from wearing and quietness. It seems to be quieter than some of my more expensive race helmets from Arai and Shoei. I have and had really good helmets but this is up there with the best.
Having only ever purchased fairly cheap helmets for riding short distances around London, this is the most expensive helmet I've bought so far for riding to work 100+ miles, NW London to Portsmouth naval base. I was looking for a robust flip top helmet, very good safety rating, low noise, good visibility including a pin lock. 1st time having used a pin lock on a helmet has been a revelation, so far no issues with fogging up and I've been riding through all weather conditions. I had to go to the store to buy this helmet after I ordered a different HJC cheaper helmet online was simply too tight due to the shape, unless you are ordering a like for like helmet you really need to physically try a range of helmets before buying to get the right fit. This is a streamlined helmet with one nice handy feature which allows for the quick release of the visor for cleaning. Even though I use ear plugs the wind noise is disappointing, I think my old Frank Thomas helmet seemed better this maybe due to less damping material around the ears, air flow is good and the position of the sun visor is better but need to get used to it. It is a firm fit and a size up from the helmet I previously used, also the visor itself locks as per the new regulations. Finally in general I'm OK with the helmet, just not so impressed with the noise suppression which should be much better at this price point. Build quality is good. The flip top release mechanism is very good, The other annoying thing with this helmet which I initially thought would help against noise it a seal that goes under your chin once you drop the flip lid into position, it always rolls up under the chin, either a finger or moving your face around get it into position and does not seem to make any difference to wind noise.
This is a truly beautiful helmet. Lightweight, slimline. Looks good on, even in Small size. Comfort is not quite at Shoei levels, but still comfortable enough for all day riding. Wide visor is awesome and gives great all-round vision. Sun visor is dark enough well, even riding into full sun. Vents work well too. Not a noisy lid, but not as quiet as I'd hoped.
Quality & finish as good as the best out there in my opinion. Sizing is on the snug side of accurate, but fit is always subjective, so try first! Comfort is okay & improving with use. Lighter & quieter than my old Neotec & with less buffeting (on the same bike). All mechanism operate well & are secure. Also fitted my old Cardo comms system, though had to fit to the right side to avoid fouling the sun visor slide. Looked at a Neotec 2, but in my opinion, these are their equal in every way, but far better value.
This is a premium quality helmet and worth every penny. Did not leak or fog up at all in some horrible wet Scottish weather. Easy to fit a Cardo headset with the earpieces in exactly the right place. As quiet as any other decent lid.
The SBS staff superb as always, ordering in plenty of different helmets and sizes for me to try in store.
Having always had sports bikes Ive changed to a Triumph Explorer and fancied trying a flip helmet for a change. After shopping around and changing my mind several times about a flip being the right choice I decided on the 90s. I made a great choice! Its comfortable but secure to wear, some of the reviews mentioned it is noisy when riding I can honestly say I have not noticed this and certainly no different to my full face Shoei's that I have always had before. Definitely recommended and add the HJC Smart comms system to it - the two work brilliantly together!
I am the proud owner of a comically large head, normally size L but had to go up to an XL for this - my first HJC.
Ventilation isn't great and it has a tendency to mist even with the chin vent open and a pinlock installed. It is pleasantly quiet though, the various mechanisms work well, the lining is comfy and it doesn't clamp my swede like a vice. The drop-down sun visor is a bit fiddly and not very optically clear. Overall I'm a happy bunny.
I have never spent so much on a helmet, ever, but worth every penny, looks fantastic, comfortable and quiet, a good fit all round and easy to fit out with Communications system.
An easy helmet to use while riding, both outer and inner visors work well, the outer with a good click when fully shut.
So far so good. One ride to settle in and feel super comfortable. Pin lock is excellent. Overall very pleased
