Customer Product Reviews
Love this helmet, only one gripe which isn't a massive one but, it's not easy to open visor with ya gloves on. It has a tiny lock switch right on the opening clasp, so it's a lot off faffing if u stop for a min and need to open quickly.. Besides that I love it defo needs pinlock insert if u dont have it in, steams up straight away.. Beyond that looks amazing on and had a couple of compliments. Fits well and comfy... A little nosey but what helmet isn't at speed. Had another HJC and wasn't half as comfy as this one... Defo make sure u you get the right size this one is very snug.. Padding is right on jaw and next to the D ring so if ur inbetween sizes it might force u to get a bigger size but that's my opinion.. Overall I love it. Will defo buy again from this site, packaged well and delivered when it said it would be and the emails kept me well informed!!! Perfect
For £250 (on offer at the time unsure if it still is) an absolute barging as expected from HJC the build quality is much more than you expect. The drop down visor is easy to find along with the vents. The accent colour is very bright/vibrant so it stands out more it also has reflective material on the padding at the rear. However the helmet is quite loud compared to others at the price points but if you listen to music or have earbuds in im sure it would be a lot quieter. Over all well worth the money.
Brilliant all round helmet
First off, top notch service from sportsbikeshop. Best customer service I've ever came across. I measure a 57cm head and chanced a small size but had to change for a medium which fits perfectly. There's brilliant ventilation on the helmet, I usually leave the top vent in the middle position as fully open you really can feel the air on your head. It's a very quiet helmet, I always wear ear plugs but have done a few trips on it without and was very surprised. I always recommend ear plugs thought. I got this helmet for a great price due to sportsbikeshop price matching another site. The fabric feels great and overall I'll own these helmet for years. I recommend you get the aftermarket pinlock insert as most people suggest. The visor has a very wide field of view and the helmet is very light at 1450grams
Back to biking after a good layoff and was ready to go back to my usual Arai. Tried this HJC on recommendation and can quite honestly say it is fantastic. Nice and light, good features and really quiet. Love the colour and style for my naked bike and the fit is so comfortable. I have a small head for my size and the small fits great. A true HJC convert, am now looking at another for my son!
The fit is great compared to the AGV K3 I had previously. Feels comfortable and quieter than that last lid with good ventilation through the top vent. Drop down sun visor operates easily and is very effective. Only gripe is the screen fogs easily in relatively high temps of 15 degs - noticeably different to the AGV which never fogged at those temps. The difference being I think, how much closer the visor seems to be to your face. Not sure how this will cope when temps are in low single digits but it does come with a pin lock.
What a bargain, Unberlievable Quality
Wow, I normally go for a Shoei lid and often pay £400+ but this little beauty only cost £285 and it ticks all the boxes, the fit is perfect, a tad tight for the first few rides then just seams to mould round your head and becomes very comfortable, the drop down visor is a nice little touch and easy to use and comes in very handy on sunny days when you blast round a bend and the sun hits you direct in the face, overall finish is extremely good, with excellent visibility, I really did not think that this lid would be half as good as my Shoei, oh how wrong I was , its perfect and nearly £200 less, and of course lets not forget the Excellent service again from SBS
HJC R-PHA 70
I brought this helmet in XS it's the first helmet I've brought that actually gives a good snug fit. This shell is an XS where normally it's a packed out medium or small casing. Visibility is excellent with the large visor area. Top air vents bit of a pain as they can get knocked of easily when the helmet is being carried. Still trying to get them right as I keep geeked a chill to the top of my head. Overall very pleased with the helmet.
Already have a RPHA 11 and wanted a more sports touring helmet. This one is excellent. Even with the integral sun visor it's relatively light weight, Slim and sporty, but much better on my z1000SX. Ordered a medium which was a bit tight at the beginning but it's loosened up for a perfect fit now.
Good as Arais I've had
This is my second hjc 70 and find it as good as my other one.sizes are different to my other hjc rpha 11s.xl should be 61/62 but the 70s are 60/61 which makes them more snug but after use they bed in ok. Quality first class and finish just as good as Arais I've had. Definitely an avid hjc user.
I have absolutely fallen in love with this helmet. Great looks, great comfort and nice and light. Only gripe I have with it is the noise isn't as quiet as I would've liked, but its miles better than my previous helmet... No ringing ears after a long ride. Fit is tight around the cheeks, but should get better over time.
This is my third helmet from HJC but I wanted something lighter and easier to put my glasses on. It's a great design, lightweight and it's really quiet and cuts out a lot of wind noise. The sun visor is great and it can be positioned where you want instead of being in a fixed position. It has made putting my glasses on very easy without struggling. The was a bit tight fitting when I first put it on but it soon but soon settled down and it's very comfortable. The vents do a great job like all the HJC's I've had and this helmet does keep you a lot cooler and without sweating a lot. The only downside was the anti mist visor so I bought a Pinlock anti-fog visor which works much better. Overall, it's a brilliant helmet and would highly recommend it.
My first helmet
My first bike helmet, bought for learning to ride on, take tests etc. Has all of the features I was looking for, eqrs, internal visor etc at a great price. £100+ saving on an motorcycle shop where I tried it for sizing. Excellent service from Sportsbikeshop also. Will def be using them again.
Very good with minor flaws
Helmet is very good, silent and fits nicely. However it does tend to fog up even with Pinlock inserted (with the one included in the box, which is not max vision). Ordered max vision Pinlock to see if that will fix the problem. Also field of view is kind of disappointing as in order to do proper life saver I need to turn my head quite a bit. Previous Caberg helmet had much wider fov. Maybe that's why this helmet is quiet - smaller visor means less noise. Apart from that very good helmet. Would recommend it for sure.
