HJC FG-17 Thrust Helmet 4.5 5 156 156
Great affordable helmet I find this helmet light, super comfy, and breathable. The vents flow a lot of air and are easily operated. Vision is great and comes with pin lock visors. Interior pads are easily removable, washable, soft, and transferable if needed. Aerodynamics are fairly good keeping your head stable at speed, until a tractor trailer comes of course. And the snell rating of course of very desirable. July 23, 2015
Great for the Price, However Understand the demands of matte paint. So, Your looking for a full helm, we know that already. You want to go above and beyond the lousy DOT rating you want to be part of the SNELL club. Coming in at under $200 the FG-17 Packs a valuable punch, with its snell rating; Its comfortable, not overly loud, has a good locking visor, two brow vents, and a mouth vent. The DOT, and snell ratings on the back are stickers so you can opt to remove them if you don't live in a NAZl state. Almost all of the interior padding is removable for washing or even replacement, Pretty cool ehh? The visor is also removable and you can get a whole slew of different ones, I went with the smoked visor for under $20 that's a worthy investment. I opted for the Flat Black Option, what a BAD CHOICE. Trust me, If I could go back I would. One slip off your bikes seat going tumbling through a bob evens parking lot and you beautiful helmet will be scuffed for life (I never liked bob evens anyways). Even though the flat black helmet matches my Harley with "Denim Black paint" nearly perfectly, the upkeep for matte paint is more than I think most of us are willing to invest in a helmet (Not to mention the fingerprint magnet the matte paint is). I would like to see a magnet strap instead of a snap for something in the $200 price range, and after about 6 months of riding the padding is still comfortable as month 1. As to the safety of the helmet, well I haven't wrecked in it. So I can't really attest to how it holds up in a wreck. We're just going to have to trust SNELL on this one. September 2, 2015
So far so good My last hjc was a large and was a bit too big. Bought this in a med and it is a bit too small and squishes my cheeks. August 31, 2015
Great helmet for the price. A little loud though. This helmet is an amazing deal for price! I don't feel it getting pulled any direction with wind gusts. The vents flow a great amount of air. My only two gripes are: 1) The cheek pads fit a bit snug. 2) The wind noise is a little louder than I would like. For the price though, I definitely recommend! August 31, 2015
Great helmet for the money I was using a gmax modular helmet before I bought this one, and it was way too big and heavy. I read lots of reviews, and this helmet seemed to be a good choice. I wanted a DOT and SNELL approved helmet that was lightweight, without breaking the bank. This fit the bill perfectly. It is very comfortable, and lightweight. The visor mechanism holds the visor securely, so if you need to leave it clicked open slightly to reduce fogging, it works great. Even at high speeds. I wasn't a huge fan of the graphics online, but I was more concerned about the features and safety at the price point so I didn't care. It actually looks better in person though, so I was pleased. I don't think you could find a better helmet for the price. August 26, 2015
Excellent helmet for the price This being my first helmet I do not have much experience rating helmets, however, it is a very comfortable, well designed helmet, similar helmets would easily cost an extra hundred or more. This helmet was an excellent purchase. July 6, 2015
Looks Sharp! And performs well. Out of the box, the helmet is mint! Design is sharp and very cleanly done. inner padding is removable (big plus). And is also fairly light. Aerodynamics are pretty good, for this price point. They definitely improved upon previous models. Good ventilation, but will still fog ever so slightly in the morning dew hours. However, they do provide a Fog lense insert with the purchase (big plus). And it works as it should. Only negative: I have sharp facial features, and find the strap a little uncomfortable when i first throw it on. But once I jump on the bike and get going. It either adjusts to the right location, or I'm just enjoying myself too much to notice. August 18, 2015
Overall, a good intro helmet This is my first helmet so I don't have a benchmark to rate it against. I've had the helmet for a little over a year now and have put about 10k miles of riding on it including 7200 mile trip this summer. The helmet fits great and the interior has kept up well. However, the exterior yellow paint has faded quite a lot since my cross country trip. The helmet feels really bulky but doesn't weigh enough to make it awkward. The helmet is very noisy at high way speeds even with the chin curtain (sold separately). I'm not sure if the majority of helmets are this loud but it was deafening without ear plugs and I could barely hear my Sena 20S at full volume (without plugs of course). The upper venturi vents provide a noticeable cooling effect. The front vent blows directly up and into my eyes. Since there are no screens on the front vents, small bugs and dirt can be blown directly into your eyes if you are not wearing sunglasses underneath. The visor has a very well made front latch that is easy to open and close. It makes an audible click when locked. The visor does not have very secure base plate positions between fully open and fully closed so it will begin to close in high winds. Finally, I dropped the helmet about a third of the way into my trip and the visor broke out the locking clip on the base plate and the visor was scratched up pretty bad. From Texas to California and back to North Carolina, I stopped at every cycle shop and dealer along the way; not one of them had the base plates or visors in stock. Most brick and mortar locations do not carry HJC parts or accessories. Overall, I am happy with the price paid and the overall build quality for a first helmet. August 17, 2015
