HJC FG-17 Helmet - Solid 4.5 5 155 155
Great bang for the buck Very comfortable. Somewhat loud but I generally wear earplugs anyway. Very happy for the price point. August 13, 2015
Pretty darn good. I chose this helmet because of the HJC reputation, confirmation from Revzilla folks that's it's a good helmet for what I was looking for, the price point and the positive reviews. I can't speak for true safety because I haven't had it in a fall yet. I hope I never do. But it is also SNELL approved as well as DOT (of course). I am right in the middle of two sizes so I sized down (small). I'm glad I did because I think the size up would've given too much wiggle room. I wanted a snug comfortable safe fit. This "fit" the bill. It's snug and when I first wore it for a full weekend (5 hrs at a time, in the rain both days) it had a hot spot by my ear. I've worn it numerous times since and that spot no longer exists. I don't find an issue with venting or the weight. I've ridden it in 85+ degree temps in the summer with no heat issues at all. I crack the shield open a tiny bit when at 45 or lower speeds to increase airflow (sometimes nice just to feel the breeze). When I was in the rain, the visor did fog up. But I think something to reduce fog if riding in the rain might be good to have. I'm having difficulty finding sunglasses to fit that don't pop up onto the ridge of my brow due to the padding and making the glasses uncomfortable. I'm not willing to adjust the great padding just for glasses so a tinted visor or screen might be next on my search to deal with sun glare. I haven't had to switch out the visor yet so I can't speak to the ease of doing that at this time. Visibility is good. At high speeds (70mph+) there is a bit of noise (sans windshield). Nothing major but I'm sure on really long drives it won't be good for your hearing/noggin. I opted for the silver for cager visibility and well, I just like it. :) I prefer to be seen so I can ride another day. I really like this helmet and would suggest it to the average rider with average sized/shaped noggin. PS: I can't wear earrings with it. It's too snug and will just pull too hard when taking it on/off. In photo also from Revzilla: Jacket (AGV Sport Women's Lotus Leather Jacket); Gloves in my hand (Joe Rocket Women's Cleo Gloves).

So far so good My last hjc was a large and was a bit too big. Bought this in a med and it is a bit too small and squishes my cheeks. August 31, 2015
Great helmet for the price. A little loud though. This helmet is an amazing deal for price! I don't feel it getting pulled any direction with wind gusts. The vents flow a great amount of air. My only two gripes are: 1) The cheek pads fit a bit snug. 2) The wind noise is a little louder than I would like. For the price though, I definitely recommend! August 31, 2015
Great helmet for the money I was using a gmax modular helmet before I bought this one, and it was way too big and heavy. I read lots of reviews, and this helmet seemed to be a good choice. I wanted a DOT and SNELL approved helmet that was lightweight, without breaking the bank. This fit the bill perfectly. It is very comfortable, and lightweight. The visor mechanism holds the visor securely, so if you need to leave it clicked open slightly to reduce fogging, it works great. Even at high speeds. I wasn't a huge fan of the graphics online, but I was more concerned about the features and safety at the price point so I didn't care. It actually looks better in person though, so I was pleased. I don't think you could find a better helmet for the price. August 26, 2015
Looks Sharp! And performs well. Out of the box, the helmet is mint! Design is sharp and very cleanly done. inner padding is removable (big plus). And is also fairly light. Aerodynamics are pretty good, for this price point. They definitely improved upon previous models. Good ventilation, but will still fog ever so slightly in the morning dew hours. However, they do provide a Fog lense insert with the purchase (big plus). And it works as it should. Only negative: I have sharp facial features, and find the strap a little uncomfortable when i first throw it on. But once I jump on the bike and get going. It either adjusts to the right location, or I'm just enjoying myself too much to notice. August 18, 2015
Overall, a good intro helmet This is my first helmet so I don't have a benchmark to rate it against. I've had the helmet for a little over a year now and have put about 10k miles of riding on it including 7200 mile trip this summer. The helmet fits great and the interior has kept up well. However, the exterior yellow paint has faded quite a lot since my cross country trip. The helmet feels really bulky but doesn't weigh enough to make it awkward. The helmet is very noisy at high way speeds even with the chin curtain (sold separately). I'm not sure if the majority of helmets are this loud but it was deafening without ear plugs and I could barely hear my Sena 20S at full volume (without plugs of course). The upper venturi vents provide a noticeable cooling effect. The front vent blows directly up and into my eyes. Since there are no screens on the front vents, small bugs and dirt can be blown directly into your eyes if you are not wearing sunglasses underneath. The visor has a very well made front latch that is easy to open and close. It makes an audible click when locked. The visor does not have very secure base plate positions between fully open and fully closed so it will begin to close in high winds. Finally, I dropped the helmet about a third of the way into my trip and the visor broke out the locking clip on the base plate and the visor was scratched up pretty bad. From Texas to California and back to North Carolina, I stopped at every cycle shop and dealer along the way; not one of them had the base plates or visors in stock. Most brick and mortar locations do not carry HJC parts or accessories. Overall, I am happy with the price paid and the overall build quality for a first helmet. August 17, 2015
Works for me This is the first full helmet I have owned so I waited a year to review. I have a 55 mile commute and no issue with helmet when I arrive. I think it is very comfortable, and lightweight. A little noise at 70 mph on the road but again I have nothing to compare it to, I now wear ear protections and noise is not a problem. Bottom line I like this helmet. August 13, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Jeremy F: Good reviews and good price. Also the videos are very informative and helpful. Jul 25, 2015
Kevin O: HJC Helment saved my life when I hit a deer one night at 55 mpm , head to Helment with the deer than Helment to the pavement . A very good product at a very good price!! Jul 20, 2015
Alyse B: The air flow through this helmet is great, especially for a full face. The representative at Revzilla highly recommended this helmet, as it's the helmet he wears as well. I'm very happy with this choice. Jul 8, 2015
W M: shield replacement technology Jun 15, 2015
Carrie R: Head shape, full face, reputable brand, rated well. Jun 4, 2015
N A: great value, needed a fullface helmet, simple design and solid color, accepts pinklock visors too May 3, 2015
Jenifer T: Reviews and expert recommendation Apr 6, 2015
ismael r: apparently this helmet is suited best for me due to the rounder head I may have Feb 22, 2015
Ramy H: I would highly recommend this helmet. Jan 15, 2015
Michael P: SNELL 2010 rating at a good price, a lot of bang for your buck here. This also fits my head shape, where the Bell Vortex did not. Sep 27, 2014
Matthew S: SNELL 2010 and DOT certified with semi-quiet riding. Sep 15, 2014
George H: Step up from fiberglass for reasonable investment. HJC has excellent reputation for quality product. Helmet shape is said to be "neutral", which should bring a good overall fit. My first HJC purchase with Aug 25, 2014
Daniel M: First helmet and was within my price range. No regrets Aug 3, 2014
M C: My previous helmet was an older HJC that my brother had picked up with his GSXR a few years before - he had upgraded his lid, and I needed something to replace my open face. The HJC shape works for my head shape, and the FG is a lighter, better vented version of the old lid. It's been, so far, fog free, with great visibility, good venting, and generally high comfort. Jun 18, 2014
Daniel G: Excellent reviews, seems to be an excellent built fiberglass helmet. Simple and relatively featureless but with the right amount of protection for a newbie. Jun 15, 2014
A S: I had an general idea as to the type of helmet that I needed. However, I'm a novice who's about to take the basic rider course; so I decided to give RevZilla a call. I had the pleasure of speaking with Tony who was knowledgeable and immensely helpful. For the features that this helmet offers (fiberglass shell, pin-lock, etc...) nothing comes close in it's price range. May 20, 2014
Benjamin B: Good Starter price. Good reputation. Fit very well. May 2, 2014
Alexander R: Had the same helmet before and needed to replace it after a low speed fall where I slammed my head onto a rock. Helmet did great on that fall, and visibly only has a scratch on the outside, however it's not worth risking to still use it. Apr 21, 2014
Julio C: I have another HJC FG-17, and crashed in it. It was a good helmet at a great price. Fits better once I change the cheekpads. Apr 6, 2014
Nathan W: Good reviews. Good price point for the benefits. Mar 30, 2014
john c: i live in sw az we often ride in 100 degree plus temps. i bought this helmet for my wife because i went to a helmet store and tried on several helmets and bought this model for myself because i liked the style ,fit , light weight , locking visor , and last but definitely not least the COOLING VENTS they're a life saver. Mar 28, 2014
Jurg W M: Recommended by a trusted friend Feb 20, 2014
Jacob L: This helmet had the best bang for the buck from all the helmets I looked at. Sure the CL-17 is about $40 cheaper, but the lighter weight, softer lining, middle face shield release, and superior venting makes this a very reasonable step up. Feb 17, 2014
Yosef H: This helmet is amazing. At first its a little tight but as you wear it, it molds to your face and fits very comfortably.

Definitely recommend.
Dec 11, 2013
ryan l: Listed as one of the best helmets for under 300 dollars on rideaparts article. Nov 20, 2013
"" ": Picked out by Kat. Thank you so much for your help! SNELL 2010 rated. All white for visibility and less heat from sun. Quiet. Pinlock and shield system is so extremely simple to remove/add visor. Had to remove breath deflector. Too small, it kept hitting and poking the bottom of my nose. Sep 15, 2013
Adam T: it was recommended Sep 9, 2013
Ron Witherspoon P: I chose this helmet as an upgrade from my HJC-CL16, size large. What an upgrade! The helmet is substantially better in that the wind noise is much lower, the weight is lighter, and the fit is tighter than the CL-16 (I had to purchase an XL with the FG-17). Padding in the cheeks is higher on the cheek line and gives a sense of protection in the unwanted event of a fall. The face shield fits snug with a locking clip to keep it closed. Smooth in raising and lowering shield. Good investment Aug 28, 2013

Steven S: I have not used this helmet with the SMH-10, but from my past experience with it, I don't see why not. The mic should be able to fit easily, while the inside of the FG has recesses where I'm sure you can fit the speakers as well. (Depending on how large your ears are, but maybe changing out the inner liner can help with comfort if this becomes a problem?) Hope this helps! Sep 3, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
A s: I wear contacts so I don't know how helpful this might be, but when wearing sunglasses about 1/2 of the pairs I've tried kind of ride up due to a seam in the padding which can be very annoying. The other half I've tried, usually the ones with straight arms tend to work ok. This is a great helmet otherwise and this problem could just be due to my head shape. I'd recommend putting one on with your glasses and moving your head around for a minute or two to see if you would have the same issue. Jan 7, 2014

brandon m: I usually wear sunglasses with the helmet and can't tell a difference. I would feel fine wearing glasses, as long as they aren't bulky or big. Hope that helps. For what it matters, I have tried multiple helmets, and this one is by far the most comfortable and best fit for me. It's a solid helmet. And, Revzilla made it easy to return and exchange the others. If in doubt, I would order it and try it out. Jan 7, 2014

Nick S: I wear a pair of sunglasses inside the helmet so I don't have to switch out the visor when it's sunny vs night. Plenty of room, never digs into my face/head at all. You should be fine. Jan 7, 2014

shin l asked: Why is the pinlock lens not included? It is available on every other site for this helmet. Apr 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
brandon m: I am not sure why it is not included now. When I purchased the helmet last year, I received the pinlock insert at no charge. That may have been a promotion or special at the time. I apologize that I do not have a more definitive answer for you.

That being said, I love this helmet. I went through three or four other helmets without finding a good fit. This one fits me perfectly, as I do not have any of the standard head shapes. It is comfortable and the ventilation is good.

I haven't used the pinlock insert, as I have found that wearing my sunglasses is more convenient.

A s: There is one lens included but because the other ones are polarized and colored they are more expensive. I did not mind paying extra for the pin lock lens because the helmet was so cheap. The helmet feels like a real quality helmet for such a cheap price. Apr 27, 2014
