I can't believe I paid what I paid.
Bobby from Revzilla spent an hour talking helmets with me last year, and told me about the unbelievable helmet HJC was releasing in the coming months. He was dumbfounded at the quality and features of the sample FG-17 helmet he had seen.

Low and behold, 1 year later, I'm looking for another helmet - this time for my unfaired Triumph Speed Triple. The second I slipped this baby on, I was sold. The fit and finish are on par with helmets twice the price. I was impressed with the materials chosen overall. From the liner to the vents to the shell...this helmet is a steal. The visor hardware is simple, uncomplicated and works every time. The helmet feels super light. I was amazed at how quiet it was at highway cruising speeds without a windscreen. I can hear myself talk without ear plugs in. I like the look of the white with the dark smoke visor.

I took this helmet on a 6,500 mile road trip without a windshield, and I am still impressed. I hope HJC continues making these in 3 years when I will be looking to replace this one.

Pros:
Quality
Weight
Quiet
Looks

Minor Gripes:
There is a slight whistling from the center latch, but only at very high speeds.

The strap could be a little longer, and the pull tab sometimes gets in the way when threading through the d-rings.

Wish List:
A photo-chromatic option would be nice to eliminate the need to carry two shields.

I wish the HJC logo were a decal or painted on, it is a PITA to pick bugs out of it.

This helmet is a great deal
This helmet has almost everything that I was looking for. I was going for safety and expecting to spend a lot of money, and then I found the HJC. At first the helmet was a little tight, but as I started breaking it in, the fit was almost perfect. This helmet is literally the best bang for your buck. If you want a safe helmet and your a beginner or experienced rider, this is the helmet for you.

Good value, quiet, well constructed.
This is an excellent value in a helmet and relatively quiet compared to other helmets in the price range. I ordered a reflective pin lock faceshield to replace the clear stock faceshield, and those are a bit overpriced. The reflective shields are tinted but not strongly so. The pinlock system does work as advertised as far as keeping the fogging away.

The venting is noticeable at the top, and welcome. I do wish this had a chin spoiler. And, I would prefer a quick release strap, but that may not be allowed for the Snell rating. The fit is relatively narrow. Overall this is a very decent helmet that buys you 90% of what you would get with a much more expensive model.

Satisfied!
Sub $200 Snell rated - what more to say? This more to say:

I was on the top end of XL with my head measurement. I went with the XL rather than 2X. It fits great, but after about an hour of wear I start to feel some uncomfortable pressure on my forehead. This has not stopped me from being out for 4 and 5 hours at a time.

Vents are decent, but seem designed for a more forward riding position than I take. I often ride with the shield open or cracked.

Pinlock insert is great, has not foged on me yet, even on a warm rainy ride.

Disclaimer: noob writing, this is my first helmet. Little to compare it to, but overall very satisfied.

Great helmet for the price
Was between a handful of helmets, and concluded on this one mainly because I found a closeout design that knocked a substantial amount off the price (would highly recommend going that route).

So as far as the good goes: The helmet breaks in nicely, the vents work well, it's fiberglass, so it's good protection and it's light enough that it doesn't leave my neck craned at the end of a ride. It's good looking, the visor is easy to remove, I presume it's aerodynamic (unless you're behind an 18-wheeler!) and the pinlock readiness is a very nice feature.

The bad: It doesn't come with a chin curtain, and you'll need one to keep wind from blasting through, the regular visor without the pinlock won't stay fog-free, so you'll need one before riding, the wind noise is a little bit much at a certain speed, but the chin curtain helps. This helmet's cheek pads are also pretty big, I've contemplated buying a new pair to swap them out with. A minor thing: it's doesn't have as many vents as you may want, just two on the top and one at the chin. Lastly, it doesn't have cutouts for speakers like a few similar helmets that this price-point have,

Bottom line: I'd recommend this helmet, especially if you get it with an older design on a closeout deal, but it's important to keep in mind that you're looking about about $35-65 bucks in extras if you want it to perform at it's peak (pinlock visor, chin curtain, possibly new cheek pads and other add-ons)

I just started riding and wore this helmet yesterday. I was able to keep the shield slightly open to allow more air flow while riding in the warmer temps. It was pretty quiet and not heavy. Great first helmet!

Nice helmet
This helmet is light and offers a wide view fits very snug around cheeks (but will loosen up after a few uses) Air flow is ok, I usually ride with visor open one notch. The only problem that I have found so far is that the top of the helmet needs more padding it seems to have a pressure point after about a hour or so, but nothing major. I would buy it again

Awesome Helmet
This helmet has been fantastic. I'm a daily rider in Boston and have used this for 3k miles. I have 2 other helmets but this blows them away- HJC 3/4 helmet and the Speed and Strength SS700 Dogs Of War.

This is one of the safest helmets on the market and under $200. I find it truly comfortable and have done rides over 500 miles long straight through with no issues. The screen provides an excellent view. I bought a black smoke screen for summer riding and the helmet looks mean with that on, absolutely love it.

The noise is pretty standard but I use foam plugs regardless of helmet which greatly enhances the ride. The foam is still in excellent condition and the helmet is yet to smell (I do use a bandana). The screen can fog in certain conditions as any helmet does but it is minimal and easily fixed by raising it slightly or putting in the pinlock lens insert.

The matte black look is great, the helmet feels very secure/safe, and the features are solid. It is easy to change screens, the screen is easy to open up even with gloves, and the airflow is good.

I certainly recommend this product to anyone, especially if you are on a budget but want the best in safety.

It's my first helmet, so I can't really compare to anything other than what I tried on to compare the night I bought it (in the retail location here in Philly). I do know it was a great buy compared to others at this price point.

Daniel M on Aug 3, 2014
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.
M C on Jun 18, 2014
Excellent reviews, seems to be an excellent built fiberglass helmet. Simple and relatively featureless but with the right amount of protection for a newbie.
Daniel G on Jun 15, 2014
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.
A S on May 20, 2014
Good Starter price. Good reputation. Fit very well.
Benjamin B on May 2, 2014
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.
Alexander R on Apr 21, 2014
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.

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.
Jacob L on Feb 17, 2014
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.

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.

Adam T on Sep 9, 2013
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

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?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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!
Thought I posted this before, but how well does the 1st detent hold the shield open @ 1/2 inch? Tony indicated the detents could be better. Thanks.
David S on Nov 22, 2014
I always wear corrective eyeglasses. How confortable is this for that ?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Why is the pinlock lens not included? It is available on every other site for this helmet.
shin l on Apr 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does it comes with a chin curtain ?
Bruno M on Feb 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't or at least mine didn't. I think it's like 6$ to add one
Is the hjc logo a sticker that can be peeled off?
