Great road helmet, excellent value for money. Really comfortable and sits well at high and low speed Great value for money, awesome features and fit. Very happy with purchase. May 4, 2015
Can't beat it! This helmet is definitely the best bang for your buck! The number of features that it provides for the price you pay compared to high end helmets is a no brainer. The variety of graphics available is also a big plus. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable, safe and budget friendly helmet. March 16, 2015
great product but it definitely look better with a black visor I like alot it would be better if it came with a piece of cloth over the chin January 13, 2015
Excellent choice for under $200 First of all, I think the force graphic is one of the best for HJC. This is my second helmet and the biggest things I can tell from a positive standpoint is that it is extremely comfortable. It just feels right on my head. Keep in mind, I do have a rounder head, so it may fit differently on a full oval head. However, my girlfriend has a slightly oval shape and she says it fits her without any issues. This helmet is also very light compared to my previous Icon helmet. I find it much easier to turn during a head check and there isn't any strain on my neck or shoulders. Also, this helmet has a wonderful field of view. I haven't found any use of the vents yet as it is winter, but as far as I can tell it will do the job. It has two top vents and a mouth piece vent that are easy to access with just a flick of the switch. Another great feature, is the pin lock shield. It is very easy to move up and down and locks down in place with great ease. Plus, it is great if you are wanting to use either hand to move it up or down. The only issue I have with this helmet is how loud it is. Around 45 mph I can start to hear wind noise at a high level and from there it gets worse. It is expected to hear wind noise from a lower budget helmet, but compared to my last helmet it is a significantly high amount of wind noise. I do not mind the wind noise, but if someone does mind please make sure you know this before you buy his helmet. Overall I would give this helmet 5 stars for its many great advantages. January 12, 2015
Nice helmet that is value for $$ Fits well and is comfortable but is one of the nosiest FFH I've ever owned. The finishing and paddings are excellent but the plastic bits (ie : The rear spoiler, vent inlets & outlets) still has some ways to go as the quality looks cheap. The edges are not rounded properly and you can still see the injection lines on some of the bits. Overall quality is still acceptable and is value for $$ December 24, 2014
Great Great for the price, my other helmets are 3 too 400 bucks more expensive but this helmet is equally as well constructed. Pro's Weight Build quality Comfort Cons It's a tad noisy Semi con Limited vents, only 3 but they work well so not really a con just a little niggle. November 24, 2014
Best for under $200 or even $300 This is one of the few, if not only, SNELL approved helmets for under $200. Heck for under $350! The shield provides a pretty wide field of vision. The pattern is pretty neat and provides a pretty neat canvas for application of reflective pinstriping (SAFETY FIRST!). My only complaint is that the shield is slightly resistive to being put up or down, and each 'click' gives you a mini headache. I'm sure the grooves will wear over time and reduce this issue. It is also a fiberglass (FG) helmet reinforced with kevlar so I am pretty trusting of it (and it's SNELL approval). It does not have a chin curtain, internal visor, and only 3 vents, so feature wise it is lacking. I did want a helmet that had some high vis characteristics so in the high vis yellow color I got what I was looking for. I do wish it came in solid high vis as they do in Europe. Why does it seem like Europe is more safety oriented. Would have cost nearly $300 to get one from Europe that was solid high vis, and wouldn't even be DOT approved (technically approved just no sticker). My reflective additions below! October 20, 2014
As a first helmet, this gets my approval! Its light, its SNELL, it's aggressive looking, and it's comfortable. What more can you ask for in a sub $200 helmet? It's pin ready, so you can get some shades or anti-fog visors too! At higher speeds (70mph+) it's a bit loud, and it seems to have a slight whistle, but nothing too crazy. The airflow is really good for not having the brow vent. I would definitely recommend this helmet as a starter and for the experienced rider. October 13, 2014

Mark T: Great value helmet, excellent graphics and features. Apr 17, 2015
JOHN GRILLI J: Mainly the price point along with the features offered! I did get to try it on in the Philly store a couple years ago and it wasn't as comfy as the Arai but then again its not $600 either. Apr 3, 2015
Mary E: Nice look with all the features - most feminine I could find being a female Mar 22, 2015

Joseph S: My brother owns the FG17 and loved it when I borrowed it. Comfortable, safe, not too loud. His is the matte black, I went with the Force neon green for the extra visibility that still maintains a casual stylish look. Dec 15, 2014
Cedric N: Value for $ -
Great graphics -
Reasonable protection level -

Robert K: Features and affordable SNELL rated helmet. Nov 28, 2014
Mark P: Great reviews and compared to the CL-17 much more "bang for buck." Oct 15, 2014
Christian N: The video was extremely helpful along with the customer reviews. Ultimately, it's got a great price for a dot & snell approved helmet. A lot of positive feedback from other customers that purchased it and of course nice design/look. Oct 13, 2014
Steven P: returned to revzilla due to conflict with glasses Oct 10, 2014
Dan C: upgrading my cl-16 Oct 3, 2014
Carl B: It had a great look and it is also Snell approved so I know that it provides great protection. All this for under $200, that is a steal! Sep 10, 2014
" ": Because i wanted a safety first helmet with little frills and a good price, after using it for a couple off weeks i would say it fulfilled that role well, vents could be better at moving air but I think the field of view is better than my rf1000. Sep 6, 2014
Jeffrey S: Cause it's badass yo Aug 21, 2014
Matthew W: Based on months of research for products within a similar price-point, this helmet seemed like the biggest bang for the buck and it came highly recommended from the RevZilla team. Thank you! Aug 5, 2014
Christopher L: Good fit, light weight, right price. Jul 21, 2014
Martyn C: It cost less than 200 dollars. It features pinlock anti fog technology and I love the ease of visor removal and replacement. It will be my fourth HJC. These helmets present no problem for me as a specs wearer. I have an FS15 Surge, and AC12 Carbon. My First HJC is so old that I've forgotten the model name. It is very "chromey" and doesn't get used anymore. The AC12 is nearing the end of it's life so the Surge is about to become a workaday commuting lid and the FG will be "for best". Jun 17, 2014
George M: I like HJC . I have been buying there helmets for years. Jun 9, 2014
Emile N: 1. DOT and SNELL certified 2. In my price range May 30, 2014

Aaron F: I chose this helmet because it's high viz but still has style. I ride an all black bike, so visibility has to come from my gear. Haven't gotten it yet, but I'll leave a review when I get it! Sep 18, 2013

Donald S: I purchased the HJC FG-17 Force Helmet about 9 months ago and It was well worth the money. I purchased a Sena Smh10 universal Bluetooth headset dual pack. That included a microphone and speakers. The arrangement fit perfectly. You cannot feel the speakers and the microphone does not get in the way. The wind noise is not a bother. I would recommend this helmet to everyone. Jun 30, 2014

Cesar O: A place for that, it doesn't has, but you can put them stuck inside the helmet, but it can be uncomfortable.
About the soundproof is great, I've got other helmet as Shoei and at the moment HJC is better. All the structure of this helmet is great!

Diego R: Hey unfortunately we returned the helmet and never tested it out beyond the fit. So I took my wife back to try a Shoei RF1100 and even though she was an oval to begin with, the RF-1100 was a much more refined fit. Truth be told it cost more but but it couldn't be more spot on despite the $150.00+ price hike. I don't remember this helmet having the pockets for speakers. My Suggestion is give Shoei a try, Yes it's more expensive but you won't be disappointed. Noise is somewhat irrelevant because you should be riding with ear plugs if you exceed 45-50mph or have a louder aftermarket slip-on or full exhaust. Jun 30, 2014

Aaron A asked: Is it a good upgrade from a cl-17? Oct 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dan C: I upgraded from a CL-16 which was my first full face. Not a big leap. Slightly lighter but otherwise the same. I like the fit. The FG uses a piece on the center of the face shield to lift up versus left side for CL. I got my FG for the hi viz color. And when I went in the Revzilla boutique store in Philly, Bobby showed me I needed a XL not an XXL. When I replaced the cheek pads and liner for my CL I got XL which worked because there are the same size shell.
Hope this helped. I have never had any other helmets so u can't compare to other brands. I do like the pinlock system. Before I got an MX helmet I would take the face shield on and off easily for off road riding.
Basically I can't tell much difference but I don't concentrate on my helmet much cuz it fits and does its job.
