HJC unveils its latest addition to the helmet lineup, the HJC RPHA 12.
- The new HJC RPHA 12 was built upon the success of its predecessor, the RPHA 11.
- The new offering promises significant improvements and features that cater to rider safety and comfort.
The HJC RPHA 12 boasts a Premium Integrated Matrix Evo (PIM-Evo) shell, combining carbon-aramid hybrid and natural fibers for enhanced shock resistance, comfort, and reduced weight. While the overall shell design remains similar to the RPHA 11, it introduces several key upgrades and adjustments.
One notable enhancement addresses the visor mechanism, a previous pain point for RPHA 11 owners. The RPHA 12 incorporates a new HJ-42 visor with a Pivot Ratchet, ensuring improved movement and sealing, as claimed by the manufacturer.
Ventilation has also seen an update, with the helmet featuring updated chin, forehead, and brow vents. The exhaust vents, however, have been reduced in number, totaling four intake and three exhaust vents. The familiar spoiler from the RPHA 11 makes a return with slight updates, emphasizing its “aerodynamic shell structure for extreme performance at maximum speeds.”
Additional features include a wide eye port, an emergency release cheek pad system, an interior with advanced anti-bacterial fabric and moisture-wicking properties, and a package that includes a Pinlock 120 anti-fog insert, a dark smoke visor, a chin curtain, and a breath deflector.
The HJC RPHA 12 is available in various options including the flagship carbon version, which is expected to be particularly appealing. The initial graphic choices include Ottin, Lawin, Spasso, and Enoth, with more options expected in the future, including licensed designs.
For motorcycle enthusiasts seeking an upgraded helmet experience, the HJC RPHA 12 is set to provide an enticing option, combining safety, comfort, and style. Stay tuned for further developments and additional graphic choices from HJC.
