Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great helmet I have had this helmet for over a year. A wide variety of shield colours are available. Pin-lok works perfectly. Bought the chin-curtain as well - it really knocks down the noise. Well ventilated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing but good!!! I bought this HJC IS-17, for an incredible sale price that I would never see in any stores around here, Scarborough, nor have I seen this colour. I mean, with tax, a $400 helmet on sale for $180? Are these guys great or what? I ordered from Fortnine Monday, and I got it on Thursday! I'll keep getting my gear from here, Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the interior sunglasses. light weight. The only issue I have is the bottom of the clear visor prevents you from a clear view when worn at eye level. Also the sunglass portion could be a little darker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value Bought this for my girlfriend to ride pillion this year and probably get her own bike next year. Build quality and features are great for the price range. My only dislike is the sun visor mechanism. It's a relatively stiff spring-loaded mechanism, which in my experience is possibly susceptible to wear. I prefer my 5 year old Shark with the little lever on the side - gravity and a simple linkage, less to go wrong! Finish on this is excellent, and graphics are tasteful without being eye-wateringly pink. Shield is thick and optically clear (I.e. Not cheapo) and the mechanism for this seems solid. It clips shut which, in my opinion is unnecessary but it seems to be what manufacturers are doing these days. The clip is solid and easy to iterate with gloves on, so you couldn't all any more really. Hard to comment on the fit as we had tried on a lot of helmets and just knew hjc medium was good for her, so didn't measure and compare or anything. All things considered, a great helmet for a great price. It's not Arai or Shoei, but for the price, it's very good. I even considered grabbing one for myself to replace my daily helmet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great graphics I bought this helmet last summer and I'm on my second season with it. Yes its noise compared to other brands I owned, but I'm happy with the fit, the cool orange graphics, the sun visor, and weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I just recently bought this helmet and for the price it does an awesome job. Too all the cry babies who complain about noise, what do you think is gonna happen? You're on a bike doing 60 to 110kms/hr. Its not that noisy people. Some people just complain way to much and for the price of this helmet its great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!! I absolutely adore this helmet! It fits super snug the padding is so comfortable I could wear the helmet day. The whole integrated visor was a big convincing factor for me, now I don't have to wear sunglasses that end up moving around with every head movement I make. It does fog up a little bit when I'm sitting at a red light but I just pop it open a crack and it goes away immediately. some people may complain about the noise but it doesn't bother me at all, I like hearing the wind while I ride.

I just bought a HJC IS-17 XL helmet & it's pretty dark tight. Sure have problems putting eye glasses on after helmet is on. Wonder if I shud do what the other did & go one size larger (which'd b XXL) & where a beanie if I have to (like him).

Asked by: hap777
Hi, If you wear your helmet around the house and find it is not comfortable, we would suggest going up a size. Please take into consideration that the padding will go down slightly after some wear. It is suggested that you wear nothing under your helmet and it fits your head snugly to provide the correct protection. ~Danielle, Customer Service, Canada's Motorcycle

Does this helmet fit speakers for Bluetooth?

What year are these helmets? I was told that the 2014 has the double d chinstrap and the 2015 model has the ratchet strap.

Asked by: highfye
Not sure of the manufacturers date but I purchased it a couple years ago and it has a classic single strap, double ring loop. Just wish the tint was a little darker like my previous helmet. Other than that, great helmet.

How many stop points are there for the visor? I am looking for a helmet that has a stop point to keep the visor open a crack at the bottom to allow a little more air flow. My current HJC doesn't have a position where the visor is open just a crack.

Asked by: MikeyW
There are 5 opening points. I often use the first point which opens about 0.5 cm or about 0.25 inches
