My first introduction to HJC helmets was not for use on a motorcycle. I purchased my first HJC helmet almost twenty years ago for snowmobiling. It was a modular helmet with dedicated features for snowmobiling, including additional wind protection and a double lens electric visor to eliminate frosting and fogging.

Since that time I have had three HJC helmets including the RHPA Max, which was the first modular helmet in the RPHA series of helmets and is a predecessor to the HJC RPHA 90S reviewed here. The main reason I kept coming back is the value for money that HJC provides.

So when the opportunity came up to try the new RPHA 90S Carbon, I jumped at it.

I hoped to use the helmet for some spring riding. Sadly, this spring would be a repeat of last spring, but this time would be wave three of Covid 19. In the province where I reside a Stay-at-Home order was implemented with the request for no non-essential travel. Although there is no ban on riding, I felt it was best to restrict my riding in support of all those fighting the virus.

At times restrictions were eased and I felt comfortable heading out for rides. Even with these changes, and with most motels and restaurants having restricted availability, most rides were limited to day trips. I have been lucky enough to ride around 1000 kilometers with the HJC RPHA 90S Carbon.

About HJC Helmets

HJC has long been known for very good helmets at a reasonable price. In 2012 HJC launched a new helmet brand called RPHA, which stands for Revolutionary Performance Helmet Advantage (pronounced “arfa”), it represented a line of premium helmets that feature Premium Integrated Matrix Plus (PIM+).
