Since 1971, HJC has specialized in manufacturing motorcycle helmets exclusively. The combination of this extensive specialized manufacturing experience, innovative ideas, and reasonable pricing resulted in HJC’s success in worldwide markets. It is HJC’s continual goal to provide high quality, comfortable, and reasonably priced helmets to motorcyclists around the world.
As a direct result of this mission, since 1992, HJC has succeeded in maintaining the status as the #1 helmet brand in North America. (Refer to Motorcycle Industry Magazine 1992-present) More importantly, motorcyclists worldwide make HJC their brand of choice. And with a wide selection of helmets in the mid to high end range, HJC has expanded consumers’ choice in helmets.
In the modern era of helmet manufacturing, HJC is proud to say that our helmets are constantly tested in both laboratory testing as well as in “real” life for quality assurance. HJC is only one of very few helmet companies that are equipped with its own state of the art wind tunnel testing laboratory to test for aerodynamics, ventilation, noise, etc. Further, HJC has 2 helmet factories in 2 different countries; Korea and Vietnam. These factories provide strategic venues to produce high end, mid, and entry level products to satisfy the demands of consumers around the world.
In the fall of 2012, HJC expanded its range with the introduction of RPHA, a series of premium helmets that feature Premium Integrated Matrix Plus (PIM+) construction for an extremely light weight shell, and superior aerodynamics and comfort. This model showcases our technical capabilities and innovations such as our advanced ventilation channeling system and our unique composite shell designs. The RPHA 11, our most recent release in the RPHA series, is being worn by professional racers including MotoGP rider Jonas Folger. What sets our RPHA 11 apart is that it offers all the features of high-end helmets at prices that are accessible to the average consumer, an accomplishment our high-end competitors have not been able to do. The RPHA 11 helmet offers extremely light weight for rider comfort. In fact, it is one of the lightest in its class.
In addition to the RPHA series, which focuses on street riding, HJC also offers a line of off road helmets. Our new FG-MX helmet is worn by X-Games Gold Medalist and FMX rider Nate Adams, as well as on the Supercross track by Mike Alessi and Kyle Chisholm. HJC recently launched the DS-X1 for dual-sport adventures on and off road.
HJC has also teamed up with some of the biggest brands in the world to produce Officially Licensed Marvel and Star Wars Motorcycle Helmets. The Marvel line launched in 2016 and the Star Wars helmets followed in 2017, with more graphics to come in the near future.
HJC won’t stop here, as we work to incorporate technology into helmets in order to lead innovative features in the industry. With the addition of the helmet models mentioned above, it is clear that HJC continues to be a brand that is friendly to motorcyclists around the world providing quality, comfortable, stylish and affordable helmets.
