Since 1971, HJC has specialized in manufacturing motorcycle helmets exclusively. As HJC approaches 45 years in the making of helmets, we pledge again our commitment to provide highest quality helmets to motorcyclists in Europe and around the globe.
In recent years, HJC has focused substantial efforts on the development of new technologies and manufacturing capabilities. The outcome of this commitment is impressive.
With the successful introduction of RPHA 10 Plus with its P.I.M technology, HJC continues to become the brand of choice all over Europe. RPHA 10 Plus is a high performance sport/street helmet designed with input from Moto GP star Ben Spies. And in 2013, with RPHA 10 Plus, we are proud to sponsor 2012 Moto GP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo. With his new RPHA 10 Plus helmet, Jorge has already won 4 Moto GP races including in Qatar, Italy, Spain and in Great Britain. We expect the Champion to win more races with his RPHA 10 Plus around the world.
In Spring 2013, we introduced our all new IS-17. Since its introduction, members of the media have been praising the IS-17 without reservation. IS-17 was ranked as one of the highest in quality and performance by Motorrad Magazine. And coupled with some of the nicest graphics, IS-17 quickly became one of the best selling helmets. And for 2014, we are excited to introduce 6 new models. They are RPHA ST, RPHA MAX Evo, FG-17, FG-X, FG-JET and FG-70s. Motorcycle riders will love the new line up.
In particular, HJC is extremely proud to launch the new model RPHA ST. It is the ultimate Sport Touring helmet with a sleek design and a new sun visor mechanism that riders will fall in love with. We have a feeling RPHA ST will be one of the most popular helmets in the market place in 2014.
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 Europe providing safe, comfortable, quality and stylish helmets.
