HJC CS-R2 Contrast Helmet
Fantastic helmet for the price. After having several helmets, I keep coming back to HJC. It is the most comfortable. It stays in place, noise is about average with other helmets. I like the graffiti-style design.

Great Bang For Buck
For so little, this helmet does a fantastic job.
The style is simplistic, yet nice.
It is very comfortable and snug.
I've dropped the dang thing so hard while tripping that my friend thought I had thrown it onto the pavement, yet it sustained very minor scratches. No dings or broken pieces.
Airflow works great, rarely fogs the visor.
The strap works perfect and is easy to put on even if you are an impatient human being like myself who forgets it until after the gloves are on and the bike is started.
Slightly loud if you have an exhaust pipe that seems to find the natural frequency of everything in the planet at any RPM.

Great for the Price
I got this helmet for my wife, who only rides on the back of my bike. The fit in the cheeks was a little tight and not adjustable (without buying new cheek pads), but at this price point, it is a great helmet. It will only see limited use, but she had no criticism of the helmet. I wanted her to have the maximum protection of her noggin at a minimum price. This fits the need perfectly.

Tumble proof ☺
I'm just learning how to ride... my very first time on the bike, I was wearing my new HJC CS-R2 Seca Women's Helmet and I skidded out on some dirt, got scared and released my clutch... for any experienced rider, you already know what happened to me☺.
Good thing I'm little! I did this tick and roll maneuver, so thank heaven my ninja didn't land on top of me. Instead I went head first into a side walk☺.
...And guess what, 2 weeks later, I'm here and well with nothing more than a bruised knee.
I guess sometimes we have to learn from experience. That being said, even when I become a more experienced rider with thousands of miles under my belt, I'll always wear a helmet. I will never want to take a fall like that again without gear on. No way, no how.

Great Choice for Basic Helmet
I just started riding again after many years and didn't know how much I would ride, so didn't want to spend hundreds on a helmet. This helmet is very reasonably priced, stylishly shaped, comes in some good visible colors (I chose candy red and really like it), and shipping was free and fast.
Like some others I found the helmet to run small. According to the size chart I should wear an XS, but ordered a S instead. Also like some others, I found the cheek pads to be way to thick for me (they are 35 mm) so ordered the 20 mm pads and now have a very comfortable helmet.
I have been riding several times a week, and do sometimes have a little fogging, but I just pop the shield open a slit. All in all, I am very happy with this helmet.

Good but felt a little misled
When i bought this helmet in read this:
Built-in Communication Speaker Pockets
3.48 lbs / 1580 grams based on size medium
to mean it had small recesses for speaker and it does not.
other than that everything from fit to finish was excellent
would still recommend this helmet... but be warned speakers may not fit as well
Fiance really does love it

This is a quality helmet if you're a bit slim on funds.
I think the look of it is cool. Matches the paint scheme on my bike.
