PERFECT FOR THE MONEY
I'm not an experienced rider, I just needed this for the occasional ride on a friend's bike. (I'm a tiny girl, I needed a helmet that would actually fit!) It fits well. It's a little bulky, but too much protection isn't enough! It is a little loud but I don't mind, we don't go on the highway that much. It does fog up very easily though. Other than that it works for what I need. For the price, it's perfect for me!
Also, it shipped wicked fast!

Great Starter Helmet!
I have always had a very tough time finding a helmet that actually fits until i came across this particular one. I know that i am a grown woman that should be wearing adult size... but none of them make me feel safe. The youth sizing feels like my head belongs to the helmet. It is very light and comfortable to wear for a good amount of time also quiet when you're on the highway. I would recommend this for women that leans toward the smaller size to try this helmet. I am very pleased with my purchase, especially with such a good price. It is really hard to find a youth helmet that does not look childish, this one is quite fashionable compare to the other ones in the market.

Great helmet option for an adult with a small head.
I'm a size XS (53-54 cm) in Arai helmets. I purchased this helmet so I can leave it with my bike when I go hiking. I have a small head and a Large fits me perfectly. It's not an Arai but it provides decent protection, looks pretty cool and it's only $80. I'm very happy with it.

Great youth helmet
Bought this for 11 year old son and it's a great helmet for the money. It looks like a decent quality adult helmet - only smaller. This helmet works great with the Sena SMH10 BT intercom system allowing my son and I to talk while we ride.

Great helmet for price
I actually purchased this helmet for my fiance. With her being as small as she is we could not find a womens xxs helmet so we had to go with a youth size. She is about 4'9 and finding gear that doesn't look childish is difficult. This helemet worked out great and she loves it. Given it is her first helmet she loves it. I would recommend this helmet for anyone who has children or exceptionally small significant others haha.

If I could have rated it VERY good I would have-

Good Helmet for Small Heads
There doesn't seem to be much of a selection of youth road helmets, at least that I could find. However, if you need a nice, well constructed, and safe helmet for your kids then this one fits the bill.

It seems just as well made as any HJC lid and I know I feel better with my son wearing it when he's on a bike with me.

Great for adults too.
I recently downgraded to this helmet from a Shoei Qwest (great helmet btw) because I needed a smaller shell. Qwest size small fits almost same size as CL-Y large. Overall I prefer the CL-Y because the shell is significantly smaller than any adult size helmet I've tried. The smaller shell is also much lighter which makes shoulder checks easier and puts less strain on the neck during long highway rides. Although there's a big difference in overall quality - the most notable is the durability and solid feel of the Shoei shield. The CL-Y also allows a great amount of air flow to come from underneath and through the front side vents which cannot close (may try blocking them in Winter). I bought a chin curtain and breath box which help with that a little. The cheek pads were a bit too thin for me so I bought the size small pads that makes the helmet snug on my thin face. Also looks pretty cool with a dark smoke shield - just wish HJC made a more solid shield like Shoei.

NOT A VERY GOOD SELECT OF YOUTH STREET HELMETS, BUT THIS IS FROM A MAJOR BRAND AND THE FLAT BLACK ALLOWS ME TO USE DECALS FOR MY KIDS TO THEIR LIKING VS THE OTHER DESIGNS.

Eric I on Aug 11, 2015
I'm adult looking for a decent helmet that has a smaller shell. Most X-small helmets have large shells with extra padding, which is very hard on a person with a small head and neck. Even manufacturers like Shoei who offer multiple shell sizes have very large shells. Is this shell noticeably smaller in--say--a size large than an adult helmet?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought this helmet for my grandchild. As it turns out it fits my daughter in law quite well also. It is a solid helmet for their use. Nobody likes to talk directly about the reason why one buys a good helmet but, of course, it is a crash. This helmet is great for my 5 year old grandson because his neck and shoulders can't handle the weight of an adult helmet. The weightsavings are in shell thickness and padding-- the two primary elements of safety: impact resistance and shock absorption. If you're a moderate rider or a passenger this should be fine. If not, I'd recommend looking at the entry level offerings of Shoei or Arai. It's your head and it's the part that "sticks out" the most. also, If weight is an issue I'd try a neck cushion to transfer the wieight to your shoulders
What accessories are available (face shield, wind jammer)
A shopper on May 20, 2012
BEST ANSWER: We do carry the faceshields for this helmet at the link below. If needed, we can also source cheekpads, but that would be a special order so you would need to give our Gear Geeks a call at 877-792-9455.
What is the weight of this helmet? Thanks
Cody M on Jul 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My bathroom scale says 3.3 lbs
Is this helmet DOT approved?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, all helmets sold on our website carry at least a DOT rating.
Is there a chin curtain available for this helmet? Will other HJC chin curtains work?

I've purchased two of these in size large. The first is worn by my 12 y/o son and the other by my perite wife. We've installed Sena BT systems in both. Air flow entering from the bottom creates enough noise to trigger intercom VOX and/or results in wind noise transmitted thru the system when we ride with a hot mic. A chin curtain would likely solve this issue.
