HJC Introduces the Revolutionary RPS-10 Helmet Advanced Protection Just Got a Lot Lighter

The RPS-10 is a fully-featured, race-ready, Snell 2010-approved helmet weighing in at less than approximately 1500 grams (3.3 pounds). HJC's Premium Integrated Matrix (P.I.M.) fiberglass composite shell is made from a unique woven blend of three pre-preg materialscarbon, fiberglass and aramid. In addition, Spectra Dry fabric is used for additional strength.

Designed in the HJC wind tunnel, the RPS-10 is extremely stable. It has been tested during development by Ben Spies and he is currently wearing it in MotoGP competition. Dial-adjustable top vents, an innovative center lock shield mechanism and a SilverCool Plus® interior are just a few of the other unique features.

RPS-10 Features
• Advanced lightweight P.I.M. (Premium Integrated Matrix) fiberglass composite shell for superior fit, performance and comfort using advanced CAD technology.

• Adjustable maximum airflow top vents with variable control dials work with the 'ACS' Advanced Channeling Ventilation System to provide full front to back airflow. Countless hours of development and testing conducted inside of our advanced wind tunnel have resulted in extremely smooth airflow both inside and outside. The reward is low wind resistance and maximum ventilation.

• Comfortable SilverCool Plus® interior is removable, moisture-wicking and odor-free with advanced silver anti-bacterial fabric. Crown and cheek pads are fully removable and washable.

• Optically-superior Pinlock®prepared 2D flat racing faceshield features our innovative center one-touch open/close locking system for an extremely secure seal.

• RapidFireII Shield Replacement System is a simple and secure shield ratchet system that provides ultra-quick, tool-less removal and installation for efficient operation when timing is critical.

HJC Technology
HJC utilizes industry-leading CAD 3D modeling programs to design helmets that are lightweight, aerodynamic and extremely comfortable. HJC R&D; specialists utilize a state-of-the-art continuous single return atmospheric wind tunnel to fine-tune the aerodynamics of every helmet they make. Designs are constantly being evaluated to reduce noise and turbulence while enhancing airflow through the vents and improving overall comfort. Every HJC helmet model is subjected to some of the toughest, most intensive scientific impact testing in the industry. Our helmets are tested in a wide variety of impacts, under extreme temperature conditions from -4º to +122º F, to ensure optimum performance in any riding scenario.
