HJC CL-16 Machine Helmet
Great helmet for the price
I was looking for a Snell rated helmet for a good price and this one fit the bill. I made a point of trying one on at a local deal to get the correct size and all was well.

Excellent for price
Great buy, have had many compliments on the hi-viz. Only major complaint would be the visor, it only has three positions when even cheap walmart brand helmets have more. Other than that great buy, would recommend purchasing a darker visor for the day rides.

Awesome bang for the buck!
This helmet is very solid, has cool graphics and is SNELL approved! This is without a doubt the best helmet you can find until you get into the more expensive higher end helmets and brands. Love the shield replacement process, super quick and super easy.
Venting works great, I live in Bakersfield, CA and for those of you who don't already know the weather here, it is H.O.T. as in 100 degrees at least once a week and mid 90s every other day.
Overall, this is a 5 star helmet for a 1 star price, I would get one ASAP! Even if it is just a back up!

What a great value on an awesome helmet!
This helmet is such a step ahead when replacing my wife's cl-10. She loves the comfort and overall fit.
Happy wife-Happy life!

Bright, eye-catching, comfortable
This is my first helmet, that I personally own. I can say that it fits me well. It's snug and I like the extra padding at the base of my skull and jaw bone. The high-viz gets attention from people in cars. I've only been out for about an hour at a time and it was comfortable. Noise seems reasonable. Weight also seems reasonable. The Hi-viz and Snell certification at a very good price were what sold me. I'm very happy with my purchase. I'd recommend it to a friend.

Super Helmet for a great price
Comfortable, very quiet, simple screen replacement, interior simple but effective, both DOT and Snell approved, graphics very good. Pin Lock screen is super and the first I drove with, particularly effective in our maritime climate where fogging is always possible. Overall an excellent product. I have used Arai and Icon helmets and this helmet holds it own quite well with these brands.

Great helmet at a great closeout price!
This is a great helmet. Granted I have been riding with a Fuel I bought at walmart which was too big and the last helmet before that was an Arai that I had 20 years ago. My head measures at the top of a medium and the beginning of a large. I bought the large and it fits perfectly. Wind noise is better than my old helm but still present. I love the pin lock and the venting is good which is saying a lot as I live in GA and it is HOT here in the summer. I highly recommend this lid especially if you are on a budget like I am. I bought the neon and people notice me at intersections which was what I wanted. Bottom line is it's a great helmet at a great price.

Great starter Helmet
almost all of the sliders are in the neutral position; this is because I haven't owned any other helmets. I have no limiting of my vision laterally, however, when wearing the helmet, and so I can comment on the FOV. This helmet is an entry-level helmet, and should be treated as such. It's a really good entry level helmet, though. It's SNELL approved, which is a strong vote of confidence that it will keep your melon whole, though it doesn't have the bells and whistles of other helmets. There is a chin intake vent and a forehead intake, and exhaust vents on the back of the neck, and that's about all that's going on. There's no blue tooth, there's no wifi, and you don't get a built-in rear-view mirror. It's just a helmet, and it's good at being a helmet.
I picked this helmet because I wanted the certainty of a SNELL-rated helmet without shelling out hundreds of dollars, and I wanted something in hi-vis yellow to match my jacket and help me stand out. It works- I've already had a touchy situation where not being glow-y yellow would have lost me the edge on being seen, and I get compliments all the time on how cool my helmet looks. If you're looking for a helmet that is just a helmet, but is really good at being a helmet, look no further- and please, do yourself a favor, and get it in yellow.
