HJC IS-17 Genesis Helmet 5 5 2 2
Fun, quality helmet! I purchased the IS-17 Genesis as a replacement for an old HJC CS-12; I'll be using this as my primary comparison, though I've worn a few others as well. Color and graphic look great. The orange is bright and highly visible and complements my cobalt blue FZ-1. The construction seems tight and solid, even though the helmet shell is comprised of "plates" rather than one encompassing outer shell. Helmet shape is a slender, long fit. What this means (at least for me) is that getting it on and off over the ears can be a bit uncomfortable but is snug and unmoving once on. The medium fits my head perfectly, even better than the old helmet which is broken in for my head shape. Chinstrap isn't the most comfortable I've ever worn, but is fine with some adjustment. Visibility is good and wide. However, downward visibility seemed to suffer some from the old helmet. The visor attachment system is MUCH improved over the old one. Visor pops on and off with ease and no fear of breaking the holding tabs; yeah, that happened to me in the past. Access to the integral sunshield is easy in deploying and retracting. Perhaps a little cumbersome one-handing it while in motion, but not too bad overall. The tint of the integral sunshield is a very light smoke, so I'd still recommend a tinted visor; I sprung for the dark smoke. Airflow is average at best, which I found strange considering the helmet has front to rear flow venting. My old helmet didn't have rear vents other than at the neck but seemed to have superior air flow at high speeds. This helmet is also pretty loud compared to the old helmet. Lots of wind noise. All things considered though, I feel I'm being a pretty harsh critic. The helmet is fun and awesome and feels great on my head. I love the one-of-a-kind look and asymmetric graphic. July 25, 2014
Awesome! The new helmet lock and detents on this helmet are awesome! I have never had an expensive helmet but I consider HJC to have minimal wind noise and this one has minimal wind noise. Very nice popping colors (orange). Just a well made helmet that fits my round head well. The improvements on this new model are great! If I had to nitpick, it does not come with a chin curtain and the one you can order is very small. My eyeglasses sit up off the cheekpads some as well. I tried a Noland helmet and it was very noisy compared to the HJC. April 12, 2014
