There is no question that the HJC RPHA-10 is one of the best deals out there when it comes to helmets and we’ve already shown you the models sporting the replica graphics of MotoGP racers, Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies. The RPHA-10 race replicas are not the only options, however, and while already affordable in those trims, they become an even better value in some of the other graphics. We will be giving you a look at them in this thread - starting with the curiously named, but very good looking RPHA-10 Zappy.

The shell of the RPHA-10 is an advanced composite that combines carbon fiber, fiberglass epoxy, aramid epoxy and organic fibers in a precisely aligned weave that excels in strength, energy absorption and weight savings. HJC calls this their Performance Integrated Matrix (P.I.M.) construction and it saves weight by reducing unnecessary overlap and resin build-up. The PIM shell is not only strong and light, but it is also aerodynamic and quiet thanks to extensive CAD design and wind-tunnel testing.

A hot helmet is an uncomfortable helmet, so HJC made sure that the RPHA-10 is able to keep your head cool and comfortable in warm weather. Ventilation comes from two large intakes on the top of the head, and one on the chin. All three are highly adjustable to allow for variable amounts of airflow depending on the conditions. These vents move a lot of air through the helmet without the higher noise levels that can come from some ventilation systems. Inside the shell, the full-removable/washable SilverCool liner helps wick away moisture and features a Gingko extract coating for a natural anti-bacterial guard.

All RPHA-10 helmets come with HJC’s newest HJ-20 Pinlock shield and insert for the best in fog prevention. These shields also feature an easy to use center locking mechanism that prevents the shield from accidentally popping open if you turn your head to look behind you or to the sides.

If you’re interested any of the RPHA-10 graphics, or other HJC helmet, you can get in touch with Brad for expert sizing advice and more information. Feel free to send him a message through this forum or give him a call at 866.931.6644 ext. 810. You can also send an email to FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM and we’ll get back to you right away!

The HJC RPHA-10 Zappy is shown here in the Red/White/Blue, but it is also available in a Black/White/Grey. The Zappy graphic is very sharp and features a red that fades to a slight orange tone from front to back.

Like the look of the HJC RPHA-10 Zappy, but prefer more subdued colors? If that is the case we also have it available in Black/White/Grey. It keeps the same sweeping and angular lines of the Red/White/Blue version that we showed you before, only it swaps the red and blue for black and grey.

Another of the new graphics for the HJC RPHA-10 helmet is called the Combust. This paint scheme features a pattern that is reminiscent of smoke drifting off of a recently blown out candle. The smoky wisps are done in an iridescent, color-shifting paint that changes between blue, teal-green and purple depending on the angle. The base layer is a solid black and the whole this is finished in a smooth gloss.

Interested in the HJC RPHA-10 Combust? Just give Brad a call at 866.931.6644 ext. 810 and he’ll be happy to help you out.
