HJC has launched its latest lid in the UK – the RPHA 11.
Costing £459.99 the helmet is available in two colours; red and black/black and red.
HJC says the the helmet is a completely new helmet in every aspect. New shell, new visor, new interior, new EPS and new ventilation have all been newly-designed for the RPHA 11. A lot of the design for the top-end helmet has come directly from development with racers so we’re expecting the helmet to be a good performer at speed.
Here are some of the details on the new lid:
Still comes in 3 shell sizes, but an XXS (52cm) size has been added due to demand.
Still made from HJC’s unique Premium Integrated Matrix, but re-shaped to save weight to compensate for all the additional features added to this helmet.
Extremely strong but only 1300g fully loaded.
Complete overhaul of approach towards ventilation.
Additional (adjustable) brow vent, additional chin vents (adjusted from inside), additional exhaust vents, redeveloped top vents with rubberised wheel adjusters and full internal seal to prevent water or wind ingress when closed, new rear vents under spoiler designed for maximum suction, new moulded channeling through EPS to connect all of the above vents.
VISOR / SHIELD
Dual Shield Lock System. HJC has kept its very popular central locking mechanism for the visor – so easy to use because anyone can find the centre of their face (where the mouth is). But they have now added a ‘deadlock’ in case racers should hit the tarmac face-down and de-latch the mechanism.
