AGV Diesel Hi-Jack Helmet

The Italian jeans company Diesel has teamed up with Italian helmet manufacturer AGV to produce a line of designer helmets. Diesel takes the helmet company in a different direction to their typical racing fare. The helicopter pilot style Hi-Jack helmet is dedicated to fans of customized equipment and riders who love life on the road while wishing to remain in line with the unconventional Diesel style. The attractive look, the range of chromatic variations in the graphics, and the unmistakable curve at the sides develop the aeronautic design that inspires the Hi-Jack helmet even further. The helmet is completed by the concealable visors in different tints that let the helmet be adapted to the needs and style of each and every rider and make his or her look even more decisive and rebellious.

The AGV Diesel Hi-Jack was inspired from the world of helicopter pilots, it is intended to those who want an original helmet that does not remain unnoticed. The seductive look, the graphic colors, and the side curved parts accentuate the new "aerospace" design that inspired that helmet. This helmet features a retractable face shield, also available in smoke and iridium silver versions, which allows to adapt its usage to the motorcyclist style and requirements.

Features:

  • Shell: Fiberglass ACF
  • Number of shells: 2
  • Fabrics: Dri-Lex with hygienic treatment
  • Internal padding: Removable and washable
  • Visor: ISV2 Anti-scratch
  • Visor: Multi-position, retractable shield tucks away into shell
  • Visor mechanism: Visor removal and replacement in a few seconds without the use of tools
  • Retention system: Micro-metric adjustment buckle

Note: Diesel Hi-Jack Helmet ships with clear face shield only.

Style & Comfort together I'm loving the new helmet. I was looking for something to wear this summer. I have another helmet (full-face) which is great for protection and during the cold months but is just to hot in the middle of summer. The Diesel Hi-Jack allows me breathe and feel the cool breeze when riding. I love the pull-down visor, it's just enough to keep the wind out of my eyes. I've read for some it doesn't do enough to block the wind but I haven't experienced that problem. Anyway, I can't say enough good things about it. Great style (although I wish it was just a bit less bulbous), comfortable, easy to put on and take-off (even with glasses), great air flow, and very light. Love it. June 9, 2015
This is a very sexy helmet, better suited for some bikes more than others. Good for a bobber, cruiser or cafe bike. Even a scooter. May 26, 2015
Great ! for hot season ! extra light Extra Light, and fresh helmet . maybe you will need a "bandana" to avoid the pollution. May 4, 2015
I feel like I'm at work. I got this helmet as I am a helicopter pilot and wanted that same look on my bike. The effect worked. I've actually had a number of people ask if it were a real helicopter helmet, especially with my boom mic on it. Overall, its a great helmet that I am very pleased with. Sizing went right along with their recommended measurements. I've had it over a year now and here are a few things to note: -It does have a bit of a mushroom effect, but buy a dark visor and you look pretty darn tough anyway. -Even with the visor down, a bit of airflow gets up to the eyes and I wear some glasses under it anyway to keep my eyes from watering. -While the helmet seemed the right size, on the highway I was getting hotspots on my forehead. I just didn't like the headliner and lack of padding on the front of it. I took out the headliner and put in a gel zetaliner from one of my helicopter helmets. It fit perfectly and is super comfy now. -Noise level seems about right for a open face helmet. -Due to the construction of the helmet, my clip-on bluetooth comm had to be installed a bit far back on the helmet placing the boom mic too far back. My comm unit also included a wired boom mic and that gave it enough distance to reach my mouth. It might be an issue with other units without that option. -The removable earpads don't seem to stay snapped in very well. They were constantly unsnapping, so I glued them in place. April 3, 2015
Not good Virtually impossible to get a communication system installed into this helmet. Size is smaller then indicated on chart. Would NOT bye this helmet again. March 10, 2015
Wicked style I really like this helmet, it is probably the most comfortable helmet I've ever had. It is just nice and cushy around the head and easy to get on. I love the unique styling and the colors/paint are really nice. My only complaint really is that unless it is positioned exactly perfectly on my head the shield seems to channel air directly to my eyes. I can usually adjust the helmet sort of forward to remedy the problem. It is also easy to pop on a pair of sunglasses underneath which solves the issue. I don't own any goggles but have also tried on some bobster goggles and put the helmet on over the strap and that worked well in the store anyway. If you want a unique Italian styled helmet I definitely recommend the Hi-Jack. Next purchase for me will be the tinted face shield! March 5, 2015
Too bad video review did not showcase the guy wearing it I wanted to like this helmet given the Italian design and Scooter heritage. Somehow I assumed it would not be big. But turns out this thing is shape like a ninja turtle head and similar in size and outline. I bought it to replace my Harley open face but when I put it on my missus started to laugh uncontrollably so loud and hysterically that my kids left their computer game midstream and joined her. Weren't it for the 220 bucks I just spent I would have joined too.. March 2, 2015
Great helmet!!!! It is a great helmet, the visor is crytal clear!!!! The airflow once you get to 90 mph it start to pull you back. But other than that it is a great helmet, it is light and a real nice one!!!! November 24, 2014

ZiLg0: It has a internal tinted shield that is easy to raise or lower while riding. The tinted shield is fixed to the helmet, if the face is opened the tint is still covering your eyes. On the exterior it comes with a clear shield that is treated with anti-fog agent. Exterior shield removal/replacement is super easy, their are additional options available to order that apply additional tinting. Jun 11, 2012

jranania: It does NOT come with a tinted visor. Too bad. The visor doesn't block the wind very good by itself, anyway, so I have to wear sunglasses underneath. It DOES come with the most awesome helmet bag ever. It's a military-style miniature duffel bag that you can throw over your shoulder to carry your helmet AND some extra things. Neat bonus, but not tints. Feb 18, 2013

Will07: Comes with one visor shield installed (my was clear -- I can't remember if you can chose the shield tint when you order) and a very nice carrying bag -- has a shoulder strap, good padding (thin), and snap buttons -- that could be used as a small shopping bag. Jun 25, 2012

Will B: Based on my electronic bathroom scale (not 100% perfect), I did a couple tests and came to approximately 2.6 pounds. By holding the helmet, it is very light in my opinion.

Harout D: I haven't weighed it so I can't give you the exact weight but it's pretty lightweight. It's lighter than my Shoei J-Cruise for comparison purposes.
One thing to pay attention to with the Hi-Jack is sizing. I have 3 other AGV helmets, all medium sized and all fit perfectly, so naturally I got the Hi-Jack in medium size. It fits fine but is on the tighter side, and on longer rides, I start feeling pressure on my forehead and temples. If you're considering medium v/s large, my recommendation would be to err on the large side. Maybe the fit won't be as snug but it'll be more comfortable with no pressure points.

Bahumut: My daily commute is 40 minutes each way and I cruise on my bike at about 70 MPH for most of it. I have no windshield or fairing on my sportster but the helmet works fine. The internal eye shield does NOT protect the eyes from the wind above 50 MPH, but with eye glasses or sunglasses, it works fine. No weird buffeting, even during head checks. May 7, 2013

jranania: Absolutely. It's pretty quiet at speed, because it is pretty smooth all over. But it is a BIG shell, and there aren't any vents, that I can see. The visor doesn't block the wind much. I have to wear some good wind-blockers underneath. Feb 18, 2013

jranania: You will have to wear sunglasses under the visor. There aren't any tinted visors that I've seen, and I don't think it would be easy to change it out, anyway. Plus, even though the overall design is very aerodynamic, the visor causes turbulence - just enough to make your eyes water is you don't wear something underneath.
Speakers? I don't know. I wear earbuds, and there is room for me to reach in there if I need to adjust things. I've never had much luck with helmet speakers.

David T: I don't advise buying this helmet at all - although it is a cool design and pretty in the pictures, it's flawed when it comes to performance .. The visor let's air flow it from the sides and eventually gets marred and scratched from going up and down.. Not to mention that it hits your the bridge if your nose. Don't even think of riding with out glasses as the air flow comes up and directly into your eyes .. As for room - yeah you could fit small speakers or an inter com in there. Most likely you won't hear much at high way speeds due to the sound resonating up and into the helmet - but that depends Sep 26, 2013

Bill F: I own an AGV Diesel Hi-Jack helmet, but have not really looked into adding speakers. I'm really enjoying my helmet, it fits well, but it is a snug fit and an intercom system may be pressed for space. I would say that you would need to look at one yourself and make a decision. Sep 25, 2013

PDXgearhoarder: My Diesel just arrived a week ago. Since seeing your question I've looked everywhere. I've looked on their website http://www.diesel.com/helmets/collection/hi-jack and their Legal Notices. Nothing. I'm stunned. Not one single mention or notice of SNELL or SA or DOT certifications. Wow. I even called their Los Angeles press office and couldn't get ahold of anyone, so I left a message.

Welp, I guess that means I'm not really going to be pinning my ears back with these bad boys on like I thought I was!

They are stupid cool looking though. Enormously big. I'd buy them again.

A shopper asked: On the Revzilla review video Anthony describes the fitment of the helmet to be intermediate oval head shape, but when I read user reviews and ratings most riders are rating this helmet as a more round shape helmet.
Does this mean that the fitment of the helmet is a rounder neutral like fit or does that rating refer to the physical shape of the helmet?
I'd like to purchase this helmet, but I have a feeling that I will have a hard time wearing this helmet due to my neutral round shaped head. The HJC IS-17 fits my head like a dream and I wanted to know if anyone could give me an idea or be able to predict how this would fit me or if I would even be able to wear rhis helmet at all.
Thank you everyone for your time and replies in advance.

nick n: I dont believe that youll have problems with the head shape. I have a fairly spherical head and the helmet fits perfectly. However @ highway speeds sometimes air can get in between your head and the helmet but tightening and angling the helmet forward work to remedy that. Also unless im doing slow city riding i dont find that the visor is enough and need seperate eye protection for the highway, i have hade minimal experiences with the visor affecting turbulence behind my sunglasses but that only happens when my head is at a 90 degree angle with the bike and with some lens shapes. Its a phenomenal helmet and i would buy it again in a heart beat. I had similar concerns about headshape when i purchased but it fits very well and sizing is spot on. Enjoy the ride mate May 16, 2015

Mariano M: flip the visor all the way down and then pull it straight out, doesn't take too much force. Its a little weird at first but when you get the visor out you'll see how it works. There are plastic "slip clips" that connect to the visor hinge. To get the visor back in just line the slip clips back up with the hinges and push the visor back in. Oct 9, 2012

RevZilla: With the visor fully in the lowered position, hold one side of the visor near the temple and pull straight out. Repeat on the other side of the visor. Reverse the process to insert the new visor. Removing the visor should not take much force. Sep 11, 2012

Copperstate: The shield is UV protected so your progressive lenses will not darken.

I live in AZ too and the dark smoke works for me, the iridium seems like it is not as dark when I looked at them in the store but maybe the reflective coating helps, either way I wasn't willing to spend the extra $$ for what appeared to block less light.

Steve C: Not sure on that color but the green & black one has Diesal written across the front. I bought mine, tried it on in the house and put it back in the box. I'll be returning it to the Philly store soon. I can't get over the "Great Gonzo" look, plus the large was slightly too loose on me and the medium I tried at their store was too tight.

A shopper asked: I picked up a size large today at the Phila. PA store. Tried it on in the store, felt good, maybe just slightly loose. Of course I didn't try on a medium for the hell of it.

My head measures an exact 23 inches. Got the helmet home and noticed that I'm at the short end of the strap end that inserts into the ratchet closure. The strap does keep the helmet secure to my neck area but if I needed to go smaller, I could not.

Doing the head shake test with the helmet on, my head does move somewhat inside the helmet.

What's your thoughts on the sizing and the no adjustment in the neck strap??
Sep 4, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
A s: I can't believe you have no adjustment in the neck strap. I have a good amount of adjustment left. My gut feel would be the strap size wouldn't get shorter going from a large to a medium.
I have a 23 1/4" head and I am using a medium. Initially a little tight but has loosened up nicely.
All shape and sizes.

joen p: Mine's a perfect fit at size medium. have no issues with the strap. i have a bit of trouble though with removing the visor. i've already scratched my helmet in the process of doing so. Sep 25, 2013

A shopper asked: I measure 23 3/4 at the widest part of my head so I look to be in between LG and XL. Which would one would you recommend? Aug 4, 2012

WCWinger: I measured 24" circumference and ordered the XL; it's just a bit large on me. But I think the Large would have been a bit too snug. My suggestion for you is go for the Large rather than the XL since your head is smaller than mine.

Since there is no re-stock fee for returns, and all you would need to pay is return shipping (or bring it to the Philadelphia store if that's possible) I think the risk is low -- order the Large and try it on. It can be returned if it doesn't fit right.

Also: Shoei helmets are more suitable for an "oval" shaped head whereas Arai fits a "round" head better. There IS a difference, although it's not really apparent. But Arai no longer makes an open-faced helmet, so I bought a Shoei instead. The looseness I can live with.

Jonathan F: large. the pads are thin-ish, meaning the sizing of the helmet overall feels somewhat larger than normal. if you're between sizes, i'd say try the smaller of the two. Aug 7, 2012

Joshua G asked: The description says this helmet has two shell sizes but doesn't specify which sizes fall under each shell. Does anyone know what they are? S-L and XL-up? Apr 3, 2015
