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. July 26, 2014
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. July 23, 2014
One of the best bangs for the buck! I followed the sizing chart and didn't run into any sizing issues. The high-viz scheme stands out great. Helmets pinlock insert is nice for preventing fogged lenses. Overall, if you're not looking to spend Shoei prices, then consider this helmet as it's a great price for being DOT and Snell approved.

Great value. You could buy every color and still have money left. Great value. I bought it for a spare. I have one al ready. June 9, 2014
First Helmet This is my first helmet and I really enjoy using it. July 14, 2014
Comfortable Fit Really Stands Out I purchased this product in the Hi-Viz yellow. Pulling it out of the box it immediately jumps out at you. After testing for fit, I set to the task of installing the anti-fog insert (which comes with the helmet). The cleaver design of the shield snapping mechanism made installation a breeze! I then placed helmet back onto my head in an attempt to fog up the shield (an attempt that failed, by the way). Before riding my bike with the helmet, I wore it as I drove my car as I didn't want to risk finding a fatal flaw in fit or vision while I was on my bike. Finding no flaws, I took it out on my bike. The field of vision is great and I saw no major problem with air flow. Like many others, I have noticed that it is a bit loud when you go fast (I took it up to 85), but I think it is a bit foolish to ride with ear protection anyway. Also, if you want to ride during the day (which I am guessing you do) you may want to invest in a darker shield. Your sunglasses with be able to fit snugly under the helmet, but the pinlock insert will not stop them from fogging. I purchased the blue mirrored shield and it works fantastic (be sure to get your second shield pinlock ready as well). Overall, fantastic helmet. May 29, 2014
Very happy with my lid Bought this in high vis to replace my 5 year old Scorpion. Much lighter, good visibility and better ventilation with this HJC. I rode in cold weather and the pin-lock double glaze shield would not fog in a downpour that included hail and snow. Outstanding fit, snug but not tight. Love this helmet. May 25, 2014
CL-16 Hi-Viz Great helmet. Last helmet was a store brand. This is a far superior product. The padding is soft and fully encases my head. Downsides are the helmet doesn't have airflow that I would like. The top vents seem to be rather small and I can't tell the difference between when they're open or shut. Love the Hi-Viz color. I know drivers can see me. May 12, 2014

Brendan S: The HJC helmet is a steal- for right around a hundred dollars, you get full face, snell-endorsed protection. I chose the machine helmet specifically because it comes in high-viz yellow, but would certainly recommend any of the HJC CL-16 helmets to beginners who want protection and decent airflow, but are willing to give up a little in the bells-and-whistles department for the sake of having an affordable helmet that still covers all the bases in safety.
