Well, my old Shoei multitec was due for replacement. I decided to give the HJC RPHA (pronounced ARFA) a try since my dealer was having a 20% sale, and I got a pretty good deal on the price.
Fit and finish is real nice. Sunshield looks a little lighter than I was expecting but I am going to give it a shot before replacing it with a darker one. Update: Sunshield worked out great so no need for my sunglasses or a darker shield. Very light compared to the Multitec. Easy to use the buttons and releases.
This helmet is supposed to have great ventilation and exceptionally quite according to the Tube reviews.
Update: I have now tested the rideability of the helmet. It has exceptional air ventilation and is very quite at high speed. Open the vents and I get just a slight amount of noise but excellent air.
Also, running the Scala Rider communications wires was the easiest I have ever installed. They run over the inside padding and fit into pockets with padding over them. Very comfortable and I hear much better than I did on other helmets due to how quite the helmet is.
