HJC FG-17 Helmet - Solid 4.6 5 60 60
Good First Helmet This is my first motorcycle helmet, so I don't have much to compare it to, but after doing a lot of research it seemed to be the best value for the money for a beginner. I measured my head and started out trying a small (I fell squarely into the "small" size range), but found the helmet to be a little big when it arrived. My head wasn't rattling around in it, but after doing a bit more research on how a helmet should fit I found that if you turned the helmet side to side on your head, your skin should move with it, but there shouldn't be painful pressure points. I reordered in an XS and it fits perfectly. I was glad as a girl, that I was able to fit into a helmet that wasn't "girly" looking. Revzilla made the return very easy. September 17, 2014
Best for the money. Bought two; one for me and one for the wife. Fit is good, yet brief ride didn't leave my wife with signs of "helmet head". Helmet is light and well-padded. We are still breaking them in, but the fit is snug yet comfortable. I rode a bit in 90+ degree weather and felt the air-flow was good through the helmet...much improved from less expensive makers. We selected white helmets. Paint looks good and is very visible. Comes with soft fabric helmet bag that's good for storage. Need to purchase smoke replacement shields for sunny days. Thermal lens only comes in clear. So far, we love 'em! September 15, 2014
Not your old HJC helmet! A RevZilla rep recommended this helmet to me and said that this was not the traditional cheaper HJC helmets. It incorporates features from the racing helmets. It was extremely quiet and comfortable. September 2, 2014
LOVE this helmet! I was trying to decide between this and the Bell Vortex and went with this after trying both on. This helmet is extremely comfortable and relatively quiet, and the liner material is excellent quality. I love the clasp for the face shield and the venting is outstanding! All the venting is adjustable and you notice a big difference which allows you to tailor the airflow to the temperature really well. I can ride all day and never even feel like I have a helmet on. The DOT and SNELL rating is a huge plus if you do track days. I would highly recommend this helmet to anyone - it is an outstanding value and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I recently highsided @ about 60mph on the track with this on and it did an excellent job of protecting me and held up pretty well too with relatively little wear despite a decent slide.

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. August 25, 2014
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. August 18, 2014
Good fit and good price This is my first helmet, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I feel very safe wearing it, and I like the anti-fog shield. Bob helped me find the right size, and showed me all the features. There is quite a bit of wind noise with the visor closed once you hit 45 mph, but I imagine that is common unless you have a super pricy helmet. August 11, 2014
Great Value I am a new rider, so getting the snell rated helmet with out spending big money was major factor in my purchasing decision. I am very happy with this helmet. I find it to be comfortable, has decent air flow, is relatively quiet, and I have not had any fogging issues. My biggest criticism is that if I am riding with the shield up and hit a bump the shield often drops down. Not a big deal but still annoying. I would like a helmet that is a lighter, but am not willing to spend that kind of money at this point. The helmet comes with an HJC logo on the front. I thought it was a permanent feature but was happy to find it peeled off with almost no effort or residue (if HJC would like to sponsor me, I will gladly ride around with their logo proudly displayed).

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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
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

walter r: I wear glasses also but no problem for me. The only thing I do not like about the helmet is the strap with the d-rings could be longer. Great helmet for the bucks. 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
