Gear review: RPHA X Nate Adams replica helmet
Having manufactured motorcycle helmets exclusively since 1971, HJC has protected the heads of thousands of motorcyclists during their riding careers. Among these riders include freestyle motocross superstar Nate Adams, who is running HJC's all-new RPHA X helmet.
Not only did Nate Adams sign with the helmet manufacturer, he worked with the brand on designing his own replica helmet. The end result was a clean and cool looking helmet with all the safety features riders would want.
WHAT IT IS
The RPHA X Nate Adams replica helmet is the all-new offering from HJC helmets. By far HJC's most distinct design to date, the RPHA X helmet features an advanced premium integrated matrix construction that mixes carbon fiber, aramid, fiberglass and organic non-woven fabric to create a remarkably strong, yet extremely light shell designed for superior fit and comfort.
The comfort features don't stop there; its "ACS" Advanced Channeling System promotes front-to-back airflow, flushing heat and humidity up and out. Add in a large eye port for maximum visibility and superior goggle fit, complemented by HJC's "Cool4Ever" interior and this might be the brand's strongest helmet yet.
WHY IS RULES
Two things really caught our attention with this helmet, the Cool4Ever interior and obviously the graphics. The helmet's Cool4Ever interior is lightweight, removable and washable. Its innovative new fabric offers a self-cooling system, which cools down faster than other major fabrics, proving to be most important for those long hot motos.
And how can you ignore this artwork? HJC and Nate Adams hit the design out of the park giving you that Monster Energy pro rider look with a bit of Deft Family flair on the back.
WHERE TO GET IT
With a suggested retail price of $399.99, the HJC RPHA X Nate Adams Replica helmet is available through their distributors Sullivans and Helmet House.
