HJC CL-17 Helmet 4.4 5 29 29
Good budget helmet. Good value for sure. I bought this helmet to replace another helmet i bought when i started riding. The old one was borderline too large and noisy. I went with this helmet because of good reviews and decent price. The helmet is comfortable and breathes well. It's a bit noisy, but i expect that with a budget helmet, so i wear ear plugs. The helmet finish is very nice, and the visor mechanisms work great. Easy to get the visor on and off. July 15, 2014
If you want to start out on a cheap helmet... this is the one Great helmet for the buck.. almost perfect, the only flaws I have with this helmet is how uncomfortable it gets when you wear it for too long, not including chin curtain and how much wind gets in through the visor... July 7, 2014
Best bang for the buck This is my first helmet and have been in it for about six weeks. I have put right at 500 miles on the bike in this helmet. For the price point the CL-17 cannot be beat. It is a little on the noisy side. Slight whistle sound with the face shield up at 45mph and up. With the face shield down there is wind noise but not enough to be distracting. It was over 100 degrees today and the helmet flowed air reasonably well. I wear a medium and it was tight for the first couple of weeks. After six weeks the helmet is snug and comfortable. Snell rating and under $150, best value out there for the budget minded rider. July 1, 2014
Better than Expected For the money you simply can't beat this helmet, very, very quite and the clarity is superb. It fits slightly smaller than I expected, I got a Xl and maybe need a XXL June 23, 2014
Excellent Present for Hubby's B-day! My hubby has been riding open face helmets for 50 years (literally), and was reticent about trying a full face. However, he wears it for commuting, and loves it! It adds protection, warmth (a big deal), and has none of the issues he was worried about (extra blind-spots, fogging). We are both very pleased with the purchase. June 2, 2014
Great bang for the buck Very impressed with this helmet for the price. I have a giant head and the 3xl fits me perfectly. It's a little on the noisesy side but so is the next level up. The flat black finish is pretty tough, I dropped my helmet but was able to cushion the fall with my foot yet the helmet still rolled on the blacktop and not so much as a scratch. Face shield did fog up like any other shield does so I bought a pinlock visor and the fog is a thing of the past. June 2, 2014
Love it Coming from a very budget $50 full face helmet this was a massive improvement for me. I found it a good weight and flows a large amount of air which is great for Florida weather. It does fog a bit when at a stop light but quickly disappears once your moving again. I found it very snug when new but after only a few rides it has relaxed to a great fit. And the Snell approval at such a low price was a big plus for me. Overall I definitely recommend this helmet. The low price is a big bonus. May 27, 2014
Worst CL ever Having used several of the CL series helmets over the past 8 years I'll be returning to the more expensive Shoei. This new version has vents that leak horribly at highway speeds and the company knows it. That doesn't seem to make any difference however as they don't fix the problem. I bought one and they won't take it back not that it would do much good since most, if not all, share the same leaky vent closures. The CL-16 was a far better vent design if you like to have them closed. At least my head wasn't cold. May 21, 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
BENZELL F: I've used HJC CL helmets in the past. I chose this helmet because the HJC CL helmet is the only helmet that fits the way I like, has the recommended safety features, and is reasonably priced. Nov 29, 2013

Gregory R asked: Tried-on a CL-16 - XL at the dealer. It fit, but it was SO tight I couldn't get my glasses (or sunglasses) on after putting on the helmet. Should I opt for the 2XL? Jun 19, 2014

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

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

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

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

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

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.
