HJC RPS-10 Helmets – In stock and Ready to Ship

HJC RPS-10 Ben Spies Monster

Finally, you can have something in common with the three-time AMA Superbike and World Superbike Champion Ben Spies!

The HJC RPS-10 Helmet was released late in 2010 and is one of the best Full Face Motorcycle helmets we have tried.  The interior is soft and wicks moisture well and the RPS-10 helmet is extremely light.  One of the biggest surprises for us was how quiet the helmet was.  Usually sportbike helmets have plenty of vents which add noise.  The more vents and air flow, the more noise.  As a result motorcycle racing helmets like the HJC RPS-10 Helmets are typically louder than a similar sport/touring helmet, but not in this case.  The HJC RPS-10 remained quiet at highway speeds and above.

HJC RPS-10 Patriot

The HJC RPS-10 Helmet has a claimed sub-1500-gram, composite-shell design.  Now available with a limited-edition HJC RPS-10 Ben Spies Monster Replica graphic  is said to be lighter and more aerodynamic than any other full-face HJC. Dial-adjustable top vents, centralized-lock RapidFire II shield mechanism, ACS Advanced Channeling Ventilation System and SilverCool Plus interior are among the high-tech features. Each helmet also comes with a Pinlock-prepared 2D flat racing faceshield. This is the same as the HJC R-Pha 10 Helmet in Europe.
