HJC CL-17 Helmet 4.5 5 43 43
Great value, great price Although a little on the large size, the helmet fits comfortably and the adjustable venting allows for appropriate air flow. At this price and safety rating, you really can't beat the value and you'll still look and feel pretty good donning one. December 8, 2014
Looks like a helmet, works like a helmet, must be a helmet Great price for excellent comfort compared to other helmets that I tried on my head. Pretty noisy, Don't ride with the visor up or it will whistle like crazy. I start to notice the weight of the helmet quite a bit after a long ride. All in all, what a value! November 11, 2014
Best full face helmet for the money....no question Bought two of these, one for my wife and one for my daughter. WOW! What a great helmet for so little money. The fit and finish are so much better than expected. The only small complaint was that at first the cheek pads are really snug. But after a little squish time and a couple wearings, they settle in and feel pretty good. The weight and airflow are much better than expected. Throw in the Snell rating and this is an amazing value. It's such a good value that I might just get one for me too. November 3, 2014
Great value I owned one HJC CL-type helmet in the past and liked its fit. When I got back on 2 wheels, I went back to HJC and found the CL-17 to be a great value being DOT and SNELL rated. This is a good all-purpose helmet; it's primarily being used for commuting. I am right at the threshold between Small and Medium. I chose to go with the Small; while it is snug, it does not give me a headache so I decided to keep it. It's tighter on my cheeks but I am confident the pads will adjust over time. As always, I received great advice from the Revzilla staff on sizing. The Matte Anthracite is beautiful! October 22, 2014
Great helmet at great price! I only have a few rides with the new helmet so far, but I'm happy with it. It almost feels like my head isn't going to fit through the hole in the bottom, but once it's on it's perfect. Airflow was good enough to keep from fogging up on a 38 degree morning as long as I kept moving, and I did not notice any unexpected drafts. I haven't really found myself missing having more positions on the visor, but I will note that my CL-14 I had before had much more adjustability at the visor. One thing to keep in mind, and I saw this mentioned elsewhere, is that the helmet seems more designed for the upright "cruiser" seating position than the "sport" position. On my FZR600 when doing highway/interstate riding (70ish MPH), I notice a lot of wind noise when I duck down, but it is almost completely silent if I sit up really straight. I wear earplugs anyways, so it's not a deal breaker for me, but I'm thinking of trying a chin curtain with it to see if it helps. October 21, 2014
Overall, a good value. Looks good and fits well. Overall, I like this helmet, but why must HJC put this enormous fattie logo right on the front? It doesn't even look good. OK, yeah, you want folks to see your logo, but does it have to be so stupid large? Or can you do something that actually matches the color scheme of the helmet? It's like a little kid stuck this big stupid sticker on the front of the helmet. NOTICE ME. So, if any designer from HJC happens to be reading these reviews, I'd pay $10 more if you took the logo off, or if you made it attractive and subtile rather than cheep and billboardish. October 13, 2014
Great deal for lower priced helmets Going from a Shoei RF-1200 to this is like night and day. The CL is larger, and heavier. I fit a medium Shoei, but can still get into a small CL-17. For a cheaper helmet though, I'd recommend it. October 13, 2014
saved my life Two days ago i got in a motorcycle accident .I was driving at 45mph when a car intersected in my way causing me to apply my breaks and my bike sending me flying, and the first impact i took was my head. Luckily thanks to this amazing HJC C-17 helmet i left the accident without a scratch or bump in my head. It protected my head at 100%. Not so lucky for my shoulder but this helmet works and i highly recommended. Thank you Revzilla for selling such high end products that actually save lifes. September 29, 2014

Brian W: Price, matte black Dec 11, 2013
steve f: I bought this helmet to replace the $350 Shoei qwest I bought a year ago that didn't live up to my expectations. I looked at several other brands, but was shy to spend $350 again in fear of the same scenario. My first ride wearing this HJC made it clear that it fit right - when I hit 145 mph on my ZX-10r it did not lift at all, and was easily just as quiet as the Qwest and had better ventilation. Sold ! Dec 10, 2013

A shopper asked: Considering the HJC CL-17 helmet. I see that it is "pin lock-ready". What is that and how can I order the helmet WITH pin lock? Jun 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Lester L: Pin lock is no joke, it works as advertised. When you buy your helmet select a pin lock lens in the color you want and your good to go. Don't order a pin lock ready shield, order the pin lock lense. I use light smoke but will also be ordering a clear as well because although the light smoke does it's job during the day at night it's a little too dark for my taste. Jun 20, 2014
Reply to Lester Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert H: It is an "anti-fog" mechanism. The helmet comes with pins in the shield but not the second piece of plastic that is held on by the pins. You need to order that separately. It's useful especially for weather changes with cool mornings and warm noon times. Jun 20, 2014
Reply to Robert Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kyle F: It uses the pin lock face sheild. I bought the helmet then bought a pin lock face sheild smoked and then the little pin lock visor that goes inside to prevent fogging is clear Jun 21, 2014

Gregory R asked: For the HJC CL-17, I see that it is "pin lock-ready". What is that, exactly (the dealer said it prevented fogging). How can I order the helmet WITH pin lock? Jun 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Patrick F: Pinlock ready means that the face shield comes with the ability to accept a pinlock lens insert. All you would need to do is order a pin lock lens insert for the HJC CL-17 and then pop it onto your face shield and you're good to go! Jul 13, 2014

Luke S asked: Are there thinner cheek pads available for this helmet? And is there a chin curtain for sale as well? Oct 7, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Brian B: I don't know about them a cheek pads. I haven't checked for that was but I would be interested in it too because the helmet fits rather snuggly.

the chin curtain will be available soon but since its a new helmet they are available in stores yet.

Melissa H: My husband wears this helmet to commute. He too, wears glasses (with the magnetic sunglasses attachment). His helmet is a tight fit, and it is not easy to add the glasses to the equation. HOWEVER, he likes the fit once the glasses are in and the helmet strapped. The snugness makes everything feel secure, and he never has to worry about the glasses wiggling due to vibration or sweat. Helmet also never moves around on his head; a good feel.
Hope this helps!

David M: I always try to test fit in a store first to compare size. I got a M. I tried both M and L and as you say the smaller size was tight but the L was a bit too loose. I always prefer a tighter fit as they always loosen up about 10%. I'd say if the L is snug that's good. I'd wear it for 10-15 min in store and if you get a headache then the larger size is probably a better fit for you. Hope any of the rambling helps. Ride safe Jul 2, 2014

Robert S: I bought a large and it was tight. I wear contacts but I did try with my glasses and they fit. It's a good helmet. Was in an accident and it took a straight shot to the chin. Cracked a little but saved me from what could have been a bad injury. It never shifted or felt like it would come off. Jul 2, 2014

Alexander F: My wife wears a HJC CL 17 with sunglasses without any problem. Maybe you need to try a different model helmet as opposed to a different size of helmet. Have had plenty of experience with helmets whose liners do not accommodate the use of glasses of any form. Good luck. Jul 2, 2014
Reply to Alexander Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Tim M: I would suggest no. I've had a cl-16 and cl-17. Both required a wear in period for the padding to shape to your head. After a few hundred miles with the helmet the padding will loosen up. Jul 2, 2014

Michael T: Absolutely, I had to go to a much larger helmet than my older ones but eventually I found the right size and I have no problem with sunglasses, Bluetooth headsets, etc.. Jul 2, 2014
