HJC FG-17 Helmet - Solid 4.7 5 49 49
Great price for helmet with lots of features Pinlock shields I like a lot, after having been through a snow storm without one. That was terrifying. Coming from a modular HJC, this one is a bit tighter but broke in okay after a few rides. Cheek pad is too tight though, very much like my Shark RSF3 helmet. I put in a Sena bluetooth system and it made my ears hurt, so I had to take them out. The strap is a bit too short in my opinion and a bit uncomfortable. Those are my complaints but for the price you get really good protection and a pinlock shield. Coming from my Modular HJC, it feels like I am wearing nothing at all during some of my 10-12 hour rides on the weekends. July 21, 2014
Nice helmet at a nice price. I usually wear a 3/4 helmet while riding local, but I needed something to go fast in so my head wouldn't rattle off. This helmet fits nice, is a good price and is pretty comfortable. I think the cheek pads are a little thick, but you can order thinner ones. (if they are in stock). The vents are nice and easy to use. The fog shield thing is really nice. I had a little trouble putting sunglasses on with this helmet though. Maybe when it breaks in a bit more they will fit better.

Best Value for the $ DOT & Snell certified in a sub $200 helmet! Love this helmet- fits great and very comfortable. Added the pinlock insert to help with fogging (definitely need it). June 30, 2014
Great buy! I am really enjoying this helmet. The air flow has been sufficient so far this central Texas summer and I think it looks great as well. At first I was concerned that it might be too narrow for my face but after about a week of daily use the cheek pads seem to have molded to my face. Now i hardly notice I’m wearing it! June 16, 2014
Good helmet, good value. I bought the FG-17 as a summer helmet. It hasn't gotten really hot yet, but it's gotten warm and so far my head hasn't been the sweaty mess I expected. The solid white color (I'm glad this colorway is even available) reflects rather than traps heat, and is noticeably cooler than my black helmet. The venting also seems pretty good, and as this helmet has nothing blocking the air under the chin, I'm happy to trade the extra cooling for a little wind noise. The faceshield feels nice and substantial and is reasonably antifog even without the inserts, and the ratcheting mechanism works fine for me. I don't have a problem keeping it locked in the position I want, and it's easy to move quickly to where I want while riding. I have a good field of view and optical clarity. The latch is also nice to have, and easy to use. The faceshield, when open, doesn't go up and back over the head as far as on some other helmets. The top of this helmet, with its vent structure, is built up somewhat. This issue doesn't substantially obstruct my vision, and might even make for a nice little rain shield (or sun visor, if your faceshield is tinted -- mine's clear). The liner seems pretty decent so far. I haven't tried to clean it yet, but it's also nice that even though I've been riding on warm (not yet hot) days I haven't felt the need to, either. The vinyl on the bottom rolls far enough in that when I set the helmet down, the liner fabric doesn't get mussed, but the soft fabric rather than the vinyl is still what touches my neck. The fit is good and snug without being overly tight. The cheeks, as other reviewers have noted, are pretty snug, though. This hasn't been a problem for me at all, but could be for some riders. I haven't felt the need to compress the pads, though. Despite the fiberglass/Kevlar shell, I don't notice a significant weight savings over my polycarbonate helmet (I haven't made comparisons on the scale). The built-up top seems to give the helmet a somewhat high center of gravity, and this may be the reason my neck doesn't feel any less fatigued. I quickly got used to the center of gravity, though. I don't get much deflection from crosswinds or head turns, but most of the time in the city I'm not going super-fast. The breath deflector is pretty small and a little difficult to insert, but holds its place better than on some other helmets. But anyway, I don't use it so it doesn't matter to me. One gripe I have with this helmet is the chinstrap. Its placement is far enough back that it rubs uncomfortably on my neck if tight, so I have to leave it a little loose. But the bigger issue is that the closure is the old-fashioned double D-ring type (a built-in tab at least makes them easy to separate). This is good for security and reasonably good for adjustability in some ways, but for a street rider is a real pain in the butt for quickly removing the helmet or fastening/unfastening with gloves. I'd much prefer a quick-release, seatbelt buckle type of strap fastener that other helmets have, especially because I can't wear the strap tight anyway. A nice feature the chinstrap does have is a simple snap that allows the user to quickly hand the helmet from the motorcycle. I'm not sure about the snap's durability, though, and keep wondering whether one day my helmet is just going to drop to the ground next to my bike. Anyway, I like this helmet. It's SNELL rated, it's a good value considering the features it has vs. the price of other helmets, I'm glad I bought it and I would recommend it to others. I've also gotten some admiring remarks from other riders who've handled it. June 9, 2014
Awesome Buy This helmet is comfortable and provides good features for the price. June 30, 2014
HJC FG-17 red For the price, this is an awesome helmet. It comes with a lot of great features right out of the box. It's DOT and Snell approved and comes with a pinlock ready shield (mine came with a pinlock insert as well, although I believe the description says it's sold separately). The fit is more of an oval shape and check pads can be a little firm but after you wear it a couple times these soften up and fit snug. I love the center locking shield as well. The design is awesome, matches my bike perfectly. June 26, 2014
Great helmet for the price Turned out to be a great helmet once I got the size right. I just ordered my usual L without using the sizing chart and was way too tight. Return process was easy and exchanged for an XL. Helmet still fits tight in the cheeks but that's just the way it's made. Probably the quietest helmet I've owned and the vents work awesome. You can actually feel them on top of your head when open. Only drawbacks are tight cheeks and the strap is cumbersome to get the snap through the d-rings. June 23, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Steve E: price and features Jul 8, 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
A shopper asked: I always wear corrective eyeglasses. How confortable is this for that ? Jan 7, 2014
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

A shopper asked: The video review mentions that there are not cut-outs for a bluetooth system. Would something like a Sena SMH-10 still be usable comfortably? Aug 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
