BACK IN 2016, HJC released its original three Marvel graphics: the IS 17 Iron Man, CL-17 Punisher and CL-17 Captain America. Since then, HJC has launched 11 more Marvel-themed motorcycle helmets.

HJC’s Captain America graphics have developed from 2016 to 2019, like his suit developed from the comics to Avengers: Endgame. The new helmet graphic has texture, detail, and a high-tech feel, while still paying tribute to the WWII American hero that fights for everything right in the world. To hold onto authenticity, the RPHA 11 Pro Captain America still features Cap’s iconic “A” on top and his polished vibranium shield on the rear.

The RPHA 11 Pro is HJC’s premium sport helmet. It was designed for the racetrack, with an aerodynamic shell structure composed of HJC’s Premium Integrated Matrix (P.I.M. Plus) shell material, for enhanced shock-resistance in a lightweight helmet. Some of HJC’s MotoGP and MotoAmerica racers will wear the Captain America graphic in their 2019 race season.

HJC announced its newest Marvel-licensed helmet in April, to coincide with the release of “Avengers: Endgame,” in theatres. This special edition helmet is available in sizes XS-2XL and comes with a 5-year warranty. $600.
