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.
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. 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 circumstances 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 two helmet factories in two 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 2016, HJC became the first helmet company to title sponsor a MotoGP race event. In partnership with Dorna, HJC has sponsored the 2016 Grand Prix Ceske Republiky, the 2017 Grand Prix de France, and the 2018 Grand Prix de France at Le Mans. In 2019 and 2020, HJC will continue to support the highest level of motorcycle racing with the HJC Helmets Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland. HJC’s professional athlete roster includes MotoGP riders Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Iannone, as well as a number of up and coming Moto2 and Moto3 racers.
HJC is also a supporter of professional racing in the USA, with sponsored MotoAmerica Superbike riders Tonie Elias and Garrett Gerloff. In addition to road racing, HJC sponsors FMX rider and X-Games Gold Medalist Nate Adams, who wears the new HJC i50 off-road helmet.
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 lightweight 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. What sets our RPHA 11 apart is that it offers the quality and 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 11, HJC has released the RPHA 70 ST and the RPHA 90. The RPHA 70 ST and RPHA 90 shells are both composed of the PIM+ composite to reduce weight while maintaining superior shock absorption. The RPHA 70 ST is constructed for sport-touring with aerodynamics and adjustable ventilation designed for upright riding. The RPHA 90 is a modular helmet designed for touring, with rider convenience and comfort as the top priorities. The RPHA 90 is a solution to the average bulky and heavy modular helmet, which is crucial for long journeys.
HJC has also teamed up with some of the biggest brands in the world to produce Officially Licensed Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar motorcycle Helmets. The first line of licensed graphics launched in 2016. In 2018, HJC announced a new partnership with DC to expand the licensed graphics line-up with new comic characters, and more exciting graphics to come in 2019 and 2020.
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.
