Jorge Lorenzo isn’t typically known for outlandish helmet designs, but he definitely did things a little differently during his home race this year. He and HJC teamed up with Spanish artist Anna Vives to bring out something special for the Grand Prix de Catalunya, and the result was the Graffiti. The original, race-worn (and race-winning) helmet was auctioned off and sold for more the $35,000, with the proceeds going to Anna’s charity that benefits of those suffering with Down syndrome. This graphic is now available as the HJC RPHA-10 Lorenzo Graffiti helmet and HJC has agreed to continue their partnership with Anna’s charity by donating a portion of the proceeds earned from the sale of each replica as well.

About the HJC RPHA-10 helmet:
The shell of the RPHA-10 is an advanced composite that combines carbon fiber, fiberglass epoxy, aramid epoxy and organic fibers in a precisely aligned weave that excels in strength, energy absorption and weight savings. HJC calls this their Performance Integrated Matrix (P.I.M.) construction and it saves weight by reducing unnecessary overlap and resin build-up. The PIM shell is not only strong and light, but it is also aerodynamic and quiet thanks to extensive CAD design and wind-tunnel testing.
A hot helmet is an uncomfortable helmet, so HJC made sure that the RPHA-10 is able to keep your head cool and comfortable in warm weather. Ventilation comes from two large intakes on the top of the head, and one on the chin. All three are highly adjustable to allow for variable amounts of airflow depending on the conditions. These vents move a lot of air through the helmet without the higher noise levels that can come from some ventilation systems. Inside the shell, the full-removable/washable SilverCool liner helps wick away moisture and features a Gingko extract coating for a natural anti-bacterial guard.
All RPHA-10 helmets come with HJC’s newest HJ-20 Pinlock shield and insert for the best in fog prevention. These shields also feature an easy to use center locking mechanism that prevents the shield from accidentally popping open if you turn your head to look behind you or to the sides.
