HJC RPHA 90 Darth Vader helmet features and benefits

Here is a look at some of the top benefits and features about this Star Wars themed helmet.

  • Advanced P.I.M Plus (Premium Integrated Matrix Plus)

This iconic feature of HJC helmets produces a helmet that is both extremely strong and exceptionally lightweight at the same time. This fiberglass composite is made up of carbon fiber, aramid, and fiberglass that makes it rigid and light. Not to mention the aerodynamically designed shell structure makes for maximum speed and performance. 

  • RapidFire III Shield replacement system

Switch out your shield effortlessly with this clever tool-less system.

  • 3D engineered ergonomic interior

This creative design gives the HJC RPHA helmet models the title of one of the quietest helmets around. Noise reduction in a helmet is an added safety feature to reduce tunnel wind noise so that the rider can be more vigilant of his surroundings. 

  • One touch open/close locking system

One touch is all you need to open or close the chinbar and face shield. The dials are also designed to be adjusted if you’re wearing gloves.

  • Multicool

The features are amazing on the outside and inside of the helmet. Lined with MultiCool removable and washable interior, this clever technology is not only cooling for the rider, but also has anti-bacterial properties. This technology prevents moisture retention in the fabric and also has quick drying properties. With this added feature, you can be sure to prevent the inside of your helmet from foul smells and keep it hygienic.

  • Pinlock technology

For the ultimate anti-fog system, this technology adds to the safety features of this HJC Darth Vader themed helmet. Inserting a Pinlock will create a sealed chamber of air between the inside of your shield and the Pinlock. This provides insulation to normalize the cold temperature from outside and the hot temperature inside the helmet to prevent it from fogging. The Pinlock basically acts like a second lens between yourself and the outer shield. 

  • Integrated SunShield (HJ-V9)

An anti-fog, anti-scratch, smoke-tinted SunShield that you can deploy quickly and easily. With all these safety features to maximize your visibility, you won’t have to worry about having to stop at the roadside to relief shield from fogging up. With improved vision, you can also be safe from being distracted while riding your motorcycle. 

  • Eyeglass friendly

The HJC RPHA helmet is also designed to fit any type of eyewear for better vision.

  • Double D-ring chin strap

Although considered to be a low tech mechanism as compared to the other ultra-high tech factors above, the double D-ring chin strap are very secure helmet fasteners. Using very few movable parts, they are a simple and effective way to secure a helmet. 

The only downside? It’s one of the heavier helmets out there, so you might want to weigh that in!


With the 9 features and benefits listed above, I think you could guess my verdict on this cleverly designed helmet. Not only will you look like the ruler of a galaxy, you also would not be so easily defeated with its myriad of safety features.

From the specially designed outer shell, to its simple and clever chin-strap, this helmet checks all the boxes in terms of style, safety, and comfortability.
