I'm a bit of a helmet snob, so when my Arai needed to be sent in for a repair issue, I needed to grab a helmet as a backup.
I decided on the HJC RPS-10 Patriot as the price was reasonable and the reviews were good. I have to say that this helmet did not dissapoint. Great fit, comfort and looks coupled with a very light weight. Easy to exchange the stock visor to the tinted version.
I do have one gripe however, (I hope HJC is reading this) the chin strap is wayyyy too long!! Even with the snap holder it creates a very big loop that just seems odd. It also feels a little cheap compared to my Arai. The material seems a little thin and the metal buckles feel cheap and light.
That said, this is a really nice helmet that may even replace my beloved Arai. But please, HJC, make the strap shorter and use heavier metal buckles and you will have a perfect helmet. Bravo HJC! Oh, and The Zilla is always top notch! Best price too!
Yes, I recommend this product.
