HJC CL-17 Mech Hunter Helmet

The HJC CL-17 Helmet hits the same safety ratings as the big boys yet comes in at hundreds less. This is a helmet designed to keep you cool. Advanced ventilation channels do most of the work but a moisture wicking interior liner is there for backup. Out of the box this helmet comes with a Pinlock-ready face shield. Adding on a Pinlock lens gives you the most fog-free riding experience out there. Shield changes are a breeze thanks to the tool-less RapidFire Shield Replacement System. Replacement shields are available in virtually every color of the transparent or metallic rainbow so you can fight the sun, match your bike or match your mindset.

  • Advanced Polycarbonate Composite Shell is lightweight and features superior fit and comfort by using CAD technology
  • Anti-Scratch Pinlock ready Faceshield (HJ-09) features new 3D design with 95% UV protection
  • Side faceshield lock mechanism for an ultra-secure seal
  • Pinlock-ready (Pinlock insert sold separately)
  • RapidFire Shield Replacement System provides ultra-quick and tool-less removal and installation of the faceshield
  • 2-Stage faceshield closure system with one-touch center open/close shield locking system for an extremely tight and secure seal
  • ACS (Advanced Channeling Ventilation System) provides full front to back airflow which flushes heat and humidity up and out
  • SuperCool Interior made from anti-bacterial, moisture wicking fabric
  • Crown and cheekpads are fully removable and washable
  • Integrated air deflector is included
  • All CL-17 cheekpad sizes are interchangeable for a custom fit

Extremely Noisy
I love the way the helmet looks but it is so loud that it is uncomfortable to use. The medium helmet comes with cheek pads that I think are too small. So I went a size up on the cheek pads for fit and noise. It helped with the fit and a little with the noise.

I also bought the chin curtain to help with the noise. It just seems like the neck roll isn't designed well. There isn't enough contact at the neck to keep wind out from creating constant turbulence.

It's a shame because this helmet could be great but it's not.

My Shoei Hornet DS has no problem with the neck roll and noise on my bike so I know it's not my windshield. I don't want this to be a $500 helmet but the neck roll and pads could have been a lot better.

Great value, cool looking, and SNELL approved
I have a Shark Raw Soyuz that I wear most days for commuting. I needed a second helmet without a tinted visor and with full face protection for night and aggressive riding. Style, price point and SNELL rating sold this model for me. The helmet fits snugly, and is of a slightly oblong shape. I'm used to my Shark / Shoei helmets that fit my head a bit more comfortably, but this still fits and feels much safer than the Shark. It flows good air with good visibility, but the single lens fogs up quickly when I'm stopped. The colors are much more muted in the matte finish than the picture shows, and I think it looks better than it does in the pictures. I would recommend this helmet specifically for anyone looking for their very first helmet as they learn to ride, or a second / passenger helmet. I can't imagine more bang for the buck.

It's very comfortable and for the price you really can't beat it
Bought the hjc helmet when it was on sale. Very happy with the feel and air flow. Feels protective and keeps you warm on cold rides. Look of helmet is sleek and if you want a "cool" factor, this is for you. Replacement of visor is awesome easy and lots of choices from antifog to mirrored. Overall great helmet.

Great looking helmet, excellent value though one glitch
I purchase the yellow/grey/black graphic which looks even better in person. Much better design than my old IS-16 as the CL-17 seems to have better vent mechanism quality. I am a bit disappointed it didn't come with a chin curtain like my IS-16 though. Shipping was very quick to Canada without hassle. The helmet did have one defective base plate visor mechanism that would not stay in the open position when removing or replacing the visor, hence the hit on durability rating. I contacted Revzilla and within a day they had found a solution that didn't cost me a dime. They managed to avoid getting me to send the helmet back (which would be expensive from Canada) or having to deal with HJC directly. A+ to the helmet but A++ for Revzilla customer service.

Great low budget helmet
I really like this helmet... It fits me great and matches my bike... The only design issue that I have had was that it does fog up sometimes.

Fantastic Purchase and great looking helmet.
For me I'm partial to HJC helmets. They've always been a great buy whether you're getting an entry level helmet or a high end helmet. The Mech Hunter helmet is one of the best entry level helmets I've bought. The dual top vents do an amazing job at moving air across the top of the head and you can definitely feel them working at speed. The fit is spot on as i have a round shaped head, no movement and it's sleek and aerodynamic. I purchased the olive and tan scheme and love these graphics, I've definitely turned quite a few heads while riding. The wind noise is a little high BUT that is an easy trade off I would make to ensure that I have optimal air flow while riding in the warm summer months.

Being a first time rider, this product is the best band for your buck. The fit is great, it's light and the design is second to none. Overall the features and fit are awesome. Most importantly this helmet design had the size to fit my fat head.

Great helmet for the price
I haven't had to test the safety of this helmet (luckily) but I feel it will protect my head well. It has lots of vents for great air flow and I love the design. The visor is easy to pop out and clean. This is my first helmet and I love it so far. It is high quality for the price.

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!

The green/tan helmet is what i wanted. And it seemed to have a few better features compared to the Icon Alliance Dark.

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.

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.
Justin B on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
My head measures 22 1/4". This puts me right between a small and medium sized helmet. What size should I go with?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I also wear a 7 1/4 baseball cap and I have a size Medium. I had to change out the cheek pads to a different size and it is now perfect.

Be sure to take out the cheek pads and try the helmet with just the top pad on. It should feel like wearing a snug hat. The other stuff can be changed.
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 :)
A shopper on Mar 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
