HJC CL-17 Mech Hunter Helmet 4.7 5 12 12
Great style and protection What a great helmet with snell and dot approval for a bargain price. Receive a few compliments on the helmet, before my first wreck. I intially didnt like the limited head mobility with the shape on the helmet being alittle larger shell than an offroading helmet that Im used to. Went into a slide barely tapped the helmet against the pavement, barely visible scratch, but the same limiting head mobility that I complained of really saved my neck from a great deal of whiplash. The shape of the helmet offered alot of neck support that really surprised me. The visor locking switch is very difficult to engage and disengage. I got a Medium following the sizing chart, but if you head measurement falls at the maximum measurement for the sizing then definitely go up a size. Otherwise follow the chart. I got it in green and the style is pretty amazing. Im getting another one in gold and black soon for my girlfriend and her scooter. Her open face helmet doesnt offer alot of protection. They graphics are really awesome. Can't recommend highly enough. July 31, 2015
Comfortable and stylish Got this for my wifeand she had really loved it. The air flow is good and overall it has a good fit and finish. Great safety rating July 28, 2015
Great entry level helmet for a new rider I started out with a helmet from Walmart to hold me over until I received my order for this helmet from Revzilla. I thought the simple helmet from WalMart was pretty decent for what it was, but man I was wrong. With the HJC CL-17 you can feel how much more 'engineered' it was when compared (for not that much more money). The fit was great and true to sizing charts, snug in the right places. Wind noise was reduced significantly and is comfortable at speed as far as airflow goes. My only gripe is that sometimes the shield does fog up slightly at lower speeds where I think it should be performing okay, but that could be because I get hot easily. Great first helmet, DOT and SNELL rated at an affordable price. Happy riding. July 14, 2015
Fantastic Helmet I got to wear this helmet for all of two days before I had to put it to the test against the pavement. I'll start off with the fit and features, and then move on to how it faired in a crash. First off, this helmet is exceptionally comfortable. The pads are nice and cushy, but not too much that it feels like it's rattling around on your head. As far as weight, it has a little heft to it, but it doesn't feel like work to keep my head up/stable. The two added openable/closable vents on the top sides of the helmet are amazing if you live in a hot climate. The ventilation on this helmet is amazing, I had no issues whatsoever. The lock on the visor is more or less useless to me, but it's neat if you're the type who doesn't constantly open and close it during city driving. I find it to be somewhat nosier than my last helmet, which had a piece of mesh protruding from the chin about an inch, that dampened wind noise entering from the bottom of the helmet (something the CL-17 lacks). I kind of wish that the CL-17 had this mesh wind breaker, but it's definitely not unbearably noisy, just a little irksome. I've found it's quieter when you're in full tuck (go figure). As far as sizing, it fits pretty much exactly as expected, and appears to be a slight oval shape, and when I say slight I mean slight. The field of view is fairly wide, I don't find my self having to constantly turn my head to see things like I had to with my previous helmet (an older Z1R Phantom). Now on to the nitty-gritty. I was in a wreck about two days after buying the helmet (I'm alright, bike not so much). I was thrown a few feet from the bike, and bounced. I definitely smacked my head at least one time, because there are indents in the shell where it hit the gravel pieces on the road. The shell, however, is intact. It did it's job incredibly well as I made it out of the incident with no head injuries or pain. The padding kept me pretty comfortable throughout the slide and bounce, not to mention safe. I'd recommend this helmet to anyone looking for a good helmet at a decent price. I'll be getting another one myself. May 4, 2015
Great Helmet! My first helmet around 11yrs ago was am HJC CS-11. I admittedly kept that helmet for far too long because it just fit and performed so well for me. After deciding it was time for another helmet, I purchased a mid-level helmet made by a manufacturer with a four letter name, that begins with B and ends with 2 Ls. This replacement was such a terrible fit, loud, insanely bad aerodynamics, and heavy that I couldn't even keep it for a year. This HJC is an improvement in literally every way, even a huge leap forward in looks. I highly recommend this helmet for someone looking for a great helmet at a more than fair price. Oh and I also bought the Green/Tan color combo and it is VERY unique, I love it! May 4, 2015
Love it. Just got the helmet the other day. Love the look of it. Doesn't get to hot and good airflow. Very good bang for your buck and I replaced the clear HJ-09 with the dark smoke one. Looks way better, then the clear. April 30, 2015
Good price, good product Wind noise can get loud at highway speeds, chin part of the helmet gets dirty from carrying since that part is white, not much airflow unless the visor is cracked open, visor doesn't lock at ~.5 inch/only ~ .25 cm. I got an HJC mirrored face shield and it got scratched up real quick. Even if you take really good care of your stuff, if you get a mirrored face shield from HJC for this helmet the mirror finish will scratch and flake off, get a smoke face shield. April 1, 2015
A very good backup helmet Pros : Cheap, looks like a $400+ helmet, reasonable quiet, quality finish. cons : at above 80mph feels like a very heavy rock is tied to your head. March 23, 2015

Jameson N: Best bang for the buck I could find. and I also love the reviwes May 1, 2015
Colt M: Bought a motorcycle that was green wanted the helmet to match Jan 9, 2015
Heath L: Because the other helmet FG-17 Mambo is apparently a smaller XXXL fit compared to the CL-17, so trying this one as it didn't fit. Dec 3, 2014
Justin B asked: Does it have cutouts for speakers to go in for something like Sena? and Does it have a chin guard? The last full face I had did not have one, and always felt like the helmet was trying to be ripped off. Apr 24, 2015

Steven C: No specific cut outs for something like a Sena. Not really sure what you mean by the chin guard question. It is a full face helmet (as you can see) with a full frontal impact protection...including your chin. Aerodynamically it does very well on the highway and does not pull on the strap (therefore your neck) as long as you aren't looking at the sky doing 90mph :). If you are referring to the chin strap comfort, I find it to be very comfortable. Doesn't pinch or choke, just keeps the helmet in place if need be. Although I think if you have the right fit, you shouldn't really need to rely on the strap. I found this helmet to be an enormous upgrade from my year old Bell. Highly recommend this helmet.

Justin B: Thanks for the info! My current helmet has what I guess is actually called a wind screen that cups the chin. My old one did not and it made it feel like the helmet was being pulled off. Do you think Sena speakers would fit comfortably in there? Apr 24, 2015
Steven C: Listen to Andy L I guess lol. Had no clue there were cut outs for speakers and such...guess i need to explore my helmet more haha Apr 24, 2015
Logan T: It doesn't have the wind breaker. I sort of wish it did though. May 4, 2015
Justin B: Looks like you can buy one for it on the site. May 7, 2015
Andy L: Justin,
Revzilla just asked me to help you with your question. I just purchashed the HJC CL-17 Mech Hunter (Black and Yellow) a week and a half ago. It fits perfectly and it snug all the way around. There are cut outs for speakers but I'm not sure if Sena will be the right fit or not. Also there is a chin strap with two D-rings and a button to fit the end of the strap to so it doesn't blow in the wind. Other than that the colors are what they look like and the visor gives great visibility. I bought the Black Smoked visor for replacement (HJ-09) quick release works wonders. Best of Luck!

Justin B: Hi Andy, thanks for the information. How are the cutouts? Do they have a decent Depth, and does the padding have a net over it? And apparently the word I was looking for was Chin Curtain, does it come with a chin curtain? Apr 28, 2015
A shopper asked: I got the medium, and it is way too tight- what concerns me is that all of the larger sizes all share the same shell. How much bigger is the bigger shell (L+) than the smaller one (XS-M)? I don't want to look like the great gazoo :) Mar 26, 2015

Sean F: I got the XL and it fit just a tad tight the first week or so, but after wearing it a bit it's extremely comfortable. If your helmet is flat out too tight then you might want a larger size, but in my experience it took about a week to break in and really fit. Mar 27, 2015
Reply to Sean Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
James S: Thanks. Even the large is pretty tight, I can't close my mouth without biting my cheeks :| Looks like I might need to go with a bigger size (still), or try a different brand. Was the XL the one that the size chart indicated for you? Apr 4, 2015
