HJC R-PHA 11 Vermo - Black / Blue
Customer Product Reviews
The helmet itself is a great fit and very lightweight. The only problem I have is that the 2 top vents seem to let air in even when their closed. Sportsbikeshop were brilliant. The helmet was returned to them for inspection at no cost to myself and then returned to the suppliers, but unfortunately there was no fault found. So now I have a helmet which lets in air and water which is not ideal especially in Scotland where we do get our fair share of rain. I do not hold Sportsbikeshop responsible for this as usual they have been brilliant.
Very comfortable lid
Previous helmet was an AGV K3, I liked it but quality wasn't great. Decided I would try something different so got the RPHA 11, it seems to be very well made, its light and fits well, no pressure points. It is very tight fitting at the moment but I am hoping that that the lining loosens up after a few weeks wear and then it should be all day comfortable.
Excellent performance / nutter graphics
The RPHA 11 comes with both clear and light smoked road legal visors, which are pin lock ready and includes a pin lock visor The fit is good similar feel to my Shoei GT air. Venting system very active when fully open. The silvered front chin vents are opened from the inside, but the middle vent between has an external open. The wheeled vents on the to are easy to find and operate with a gloved hand Visor quick change system is easy to work and change when arriving at a track and a dark visor is needed The venom graphic looks the package with my dainese kyalami black/white/red and my mt-10 ice/red
HJC - helmet size.
Size, if you need a medium (I. E.) 58, it would be better to go for a 57/58 and NOT a 58/59. As it comes in the two sizes for the one size. IT also comes with a slight tint visor as well as the clear one. Visor change is very easy, done in seconds.
This my 3rd HJC Helmet. My last RPHA 11 was subject to a slide and tumble down the track at significant speed. Although I retired the lid, it did it's job in protecting my skull from the multiple collisions with the track surface. HJC do offer various size cheek pads for their lids however sportsbikeshop don't seem to offer this option. I have a medium lid with larger cheeks pad which offers a more snug fit. I cant compare wind noise to other brands as I have only ever used HJC due to their value for money and wide range of graphics. Highly recommended. Sportsbikeshop service top notch as usual.
Usual quality from HJC
I gave up on Arai a long time ago after one too many vent breakages and Arai just weren't interested, and don't get me started on their ridiculous visor system so it's another HJC purchase - the RPHA 11 to replace an ageing (but still good) RPHA 10. Great comfort, improved ventilation and (in my opinion) the best , easiest visor change in the business.... Top helmet!
Light, Sleek, super venting, nice helmet
Bought to replace an expensive Arai with a stonechip. first impression was how light it felt. snug fit. the venting is so good it feels like an open face lid, visor mech is easy. all in all a lovely lid with good features: pinlock, emergency outs, tinted visor etc It is a bit noisy and I've had to run the supplied chin curtain because flying insects seem to want in. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
Firstly the delivery response by Sportsbikeshop was very prompt. The helmet's description on the website was very important to me. I need to Wear specs for riding, which this helmet has a specific feature, and it works well. It's a light weight and good fitting helmet. All well described on the website. I can't really fault this helmet. Superb! To complement the excellent helmet performance it comes with a light grey visor and pin lock lens. What more do you need!
Cracking new version of this helmet
I've had an R-PHA10 for about five years now and decided it was time to update. The original was a great helmet and lasted really well, so I was hoping this would be the same quality. Pleased to say it's even better - great fit, quieter than my last one at speed and the vision is superb. Great product and would recommend it to anyone!
Super Quality , Super price , Super design
This helmet is awsome in every way . HJC have just reinvented the helmet . From its futuristic design to the quality of build . This helmet fits me like a glove and it is so light in weight .It almost feels like you haven't got it on . The materials used are of high end quality . changing the visor takes litterally 20 seconds . The air vents work extremely well ( no fogging on visor even when mouth vent was closed ) The top air vents filter air through into the top and back of the helmet keeping you cool . Both can be closed using the small wheel which is really smart . Take it from me folks this is one amazing helmet .
I had my doubts with this helmet before I purchased it since HJC's sizing on this helmet makes near to 0 sense BUT if you order a size up from your stadard size then you'll find yourself in a breezy helmet that stays stable at high speeds, weirdly enough I actually find my head aerodynamically more comfortable in this helmet than the Arai RX-7V. The venting on this lid is also second to none. perfect for summer and traffic/commuting. - I personally commute with this lid and the included SkipFog insert so far has been better than any pinlock I've ever had BUT that being said if your preference is pinlock they're easy to get.
I've had the previous model, the 10 for years and it was great. The 11 was after trying many other helmets still the best option for fit and weight for the price. I bought mine from the clearance section (outgoing graphics) so the price of £ 230 the best helmet for the price.
