HJC FG-17 Helmet - Solid 4.6 5 31 31
Great helmet! Very happy with this. Fits great much better than the agv I returned which was painful to wear. Love it! April 14, 2014
Entry-level helmet, entry-level functionality. This helmet is a great entry-level purchase, but knowing what I know now, I would have sprung for a different helmet all together. My biggest issues are its weight, the narrow-ish vision, and the whistling sound the helmet makes if I turn my head to a certain angle. These make long trips seem like a chore. But at less than $200, it's hard to complain. March 21, 2014
Overall, a good value. Safe, quiet and light. I like this helmet. It seems that HJC helmets run a bit on the tight side, so I got an XL and it's still plenty snug. The only thing I didn't like was how tight it was on my cheeks. Like, WAY snug. I don't have a particularly fat face, but it really pushed on my cheek bones in such a way that I almost had to drop my jaw and keep my mouth open. So, with my mouth open, when I would close it, it was like my cheeks were pushed into my teeth, causing me to almost bite the inside of my cheeks. As you can imagine, that isn't very comfortable. I'd find myself gritting my teeth so I wouldn't bit my cheek when I opened and closed my mouth. I solved the problem by clamping a couple of pieces of wood to the facial pads and leaving the clamps on for a couple of days. It seems to have compressed the foam enough that it's more comfortable now. They say helmets get loose as you wear them and that sometimes is the case, but not always. It's much more comfortable now (after wearing it for some time and clamping the foam face pads down for some weeks). So if you've got a "puffy" face or a wider head at the cheeks (above the mouth, below the eyes), or a "strong" jaw line, you may have a similar fit problem. I love the airflow, and how light this helmet is. I wish the chin strap was attached slightly more forward -- when tight, it digs into the neck rather than fit comfortably under the jaw. Small thing -- I leave the strap a bit looser and it's not a problem. No helmet is perfect. This one is a good value for the price. March 10, 2014
An excellent, visually attractive helmet for a good price I purchased this helmet based on my very knowledgeable colleague's recommendation. I'm impressed. The helmet is light, has a comfortable snug fit, excellent air circulation, and is visually very attractive. I considered the price surprisingly low for the quality of this product, especially since shipping was free. March 10, 2014
Great Helmet This is my first motorcycle helmet. I have an HJC AR-10 II which I use for HPDE's in my car. I was impressed with the AR-10, so I decided to give the FG a try. Ended up getting the matte black version. Unlike the photos, it doesn't come with a solid logo sticker above the visor. Instead, it has a 4 piece rubbery logo instead, which I removed in order to have a logo-less helmet. Despite everything that I have done, after removal of the rubber logo, you can still faintly see the shadow where the logo was. It's not that big of a deal, just an observation. I did end up buying the chin curtain for the helmet, which dramatically helped the amount of noise and wind entering the helmet at speed. There is a slight buzzing noise coming from the shield (I believe) when you turn your head at speed. I don't notice it with ear plugs in, but when I've gone plug-less, I've noticed it. Venting is good. Ended up adding an light smoke shield, which is plenty dark for me. The shield doesn't really stay up unless you lift it all the way up. Not sure if most motorcycle helmets are this way, because my AR-10 II isn't like this. On that one, I can leave the shield open halfway, and it doesn't move at all. If I open this one halfway, and nod my head, it will shut. Not a huge issue, since it's always closed when riding. But that might be something to look at if you like to keep it open. Overall, I'm pleased with it, and would recommend it. February 15, 2014
Mr. Bang for the BUCK! If you are like most people in this world (like myself) you are a middle-class citizen.....do not make millions, work hard for what you have, but like to have nice, working, and reliable things. Obviously all of the people reading this like ok ok LOVE to ride...and you are looking for something that will number 1 keep you safe...well this is a check. It has the DOT/Snell ratings. You also want comfortable, reliable with some nice features. Well again this product has it. For the money this has quite a bit. It has 3 main vents for air (2 top and 1 mouth), it has a nice sleek design made to be comfortable and not super heavy because of the materials it is made from (fiberglass composite), BUT in my opinion the nicest feature of this helmet is the locking system for the face shield and the pins for the 2nd attachable shield to stop your shield from fogging up (and yes it actually works very well). The locking system is nice because it makes pretty much a full air locking system to cut down on noise and the pins are great because who likes foggy shields!??!? NO ONE! again this helmet is the bang for the buck pick for what you get. I have the flat black and it is very easy to clean and I have not have had any problems with using cleaners and keeping it Matte looking (it still looks matte and the cleaners do not give it any sort of glass look what so ever) Great choice people! Have fun and safe riding! -Luke February 3, 2014
Really great product for the price I've owned this helmet since July 2013. I did get into a highside accident going about 40mph and the helmet protected me. There was just one scrape on the lower right part, near my right ear. I have no replaced the helmet yet and have covered up the scratch with a Alpinestars sticker. Style - It is a pretty basic looking black full face. I have the gold mirror lens and it looks phenomenal. I've gotten lots of compliments. Comfort - I can ride with this thing on all day without any issue. I ride a 2011 Kawasaki ZX-6R which is a pretty aggressive riding position. When on the highway I have to look up most of the time and the helmet is not heavy at all. I feel no strain on my neck after a long ride. Protection - Like I said, I highsided at 40mph. Protected my head but my head was also not the one that came into contact with the road the most...my knee and elbow was. Air Flow - Has plenty of flow when you want, and you can block it off when you don't want it. I have yet to learn how to use the vents at the top. I use an Alpinestars Touring Winter Balaclava in the winter and nothing in the summer. I have had no issues in either season. Features - Removable liner, vents up top, vent near mouth, pinlock lens, quick release lens system, and locking lens. These are all fantastic features. Lens doesn't fog, and I like how it locks along the gasket. Noise - I usually have headphones in so I don't notice. Even when I don't use headphones I don't notice the wind all that much...I guess I'm just used to it? Weight - I can ride with this thing on all day without any issue. I ride a 2011 Kawasaki ZX-6R which is a pretty aggressive riding position. When on the highway I have to look up most of the time and the helmet is not heavy at all. I feel no strain on my neck after a long ride. I would HIGHLY recommend this helmet. January 14, 2014
Kinda heavy Helmet is kinda heavy, but still very good helmet and price for snell approved. January 13, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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.

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

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

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
