HJC FG-17 Lorenzo X-Fuera Helmet
Perfect Helmet for Round Head
This is the first new helmet I've tried that fits my large, round 3XL head perfectly. The helmet fits and comes off without pinching the cheeks too much, yet is comfortably snug on the head. The chin strap is a little closer towards the neck than my beat-up RF900, but don't notice it while riding. The visor has 1 strong detent in the full-up position, and the other positions are weak detents (besides the "cracked open" position), but that doesn't bother me at all since with the pinlock insert you can keep the visor down or clamped without having to worry about the visor fogging up at a stop light in cooler weather. Great visibility for doing head-checks in traffic. And a nice paint job. Very happy with my HJC FG-17 X-Fuera.
P.S. Kudos to Revzilla's super-fast shipping.

Muy buen casco por el precio
El FG-17 es un excelente casco, muy como y con extrema comodidad para las orejas (no quedan apretadas).
El nivel de ruido es aceptable.
La tranca de la visera central es sumamente practica para subirla o bajarla con cualquier mano
Es muy simple abrir las entradas de aire y la frontal genera un flujo muy bueno para el verano.
El sistema de fijación de la visera es excelente, se cambian las viseras en segundos sin ninguna complicación.
El único detalle (que no es con el único modelo que pasa) es que la visión no es TAN ancha como en otros cascos (NEXX por ejemplo).
Le faltaría una tela para la zona de la pera, porque queda muy al aire y se podría hacer un poco mas alto el protector de la nariz para que no toque la cara.
Solamente detalles que no afectan a un excelente casco
El diseño de Jorge Lorenzo es muy bueno, muy buena calidad y brillo.
Yo soy talle M en otros HJC y en este sigue siendo lo mismo.

Excellent for price
This helmets fit great. A good snug fit. Very narrow feel and very light for style and build. Liner is very nice and comfortable. The graphics and durability is very good quality. Ventilation is very good, and still mildly quiet. Over all for this helmet OUTSTANDING. For the price and it being just under the top of the line HJC helmet. I would recommend and purchace again.

Great price on the Lorenzo and I really like the graphics. Not the most comfortable of my helmets but certainly well within the realm of acceptability. My biggest complaint is that the chin strap needs to be a bit longer (see Arai) for ease of use.

Finally got a helmet I'm 100% please with.
After trying many helmets in this price range I got this one, and for me,.. It is everything I wanted.
To start, the inside lining feels very good quality and very comfortable, the airflow is very good and still being reasonably quiet, the helmet feels so light that when turning my head while riding it feels like I'm not wearing a helmet.
I also love that I don,t look like a "bobble head" because the shell of the helmet is not over size. Also.. the design is sweet, is stylish and looks just awesome, specially with a dark tint shield on.
And not to forget,.. it comes with the anti fog pinlock shield insert that works perfect.
I would give it even better rating but I have not had it that long.
I just love this helmet.

This helmet is awesome, One bloody gripe, the face sheild adjustments to move the face sheild up or down are a bit weak..Not that they break. if you have it half open and start riding, the face sheild plops down - it won't stay open at spead unless its in the complete up position. It takes a little getting used to but it stays open a crack to let enough airflow come in. Also, make sure when you buy one, it is snug, it conforms to your head shape after a few rides and fits very very well..I think it's a fantastic buy for the money..very comparable to my Arai & Shoei's

My new permanent helmet
Definitely love this model. From the first time I put it on, definitely true to size. Minimal wind noise and road noise. The windshield lock does a great job at sealing out the noise and lets you just concentrate on enjoying the ride. I used to ride with ear plugs before this, but not anymore.
