HJC IS-17 Helmet

If you've ever thought, "I wish I had sunglasses right now" the HJC IS-17 might be the helmet for you. A centrally mounted slide on the top of the helmet will lower a tinted visor to keep the rays at bay. To keep the sun's energy in check, the IS-17 features a moisture wicking interior liner coupled with generous intake and exhaust vents for channeling cool air in and hot air out. The IS-17 is perfect for the daily commuter or anyone else who doesn't want to fuss with swapping shields in and out.

  • Impact absorbing multiple density EPS liner
  • One-Touch Integrated Smoke-Tinted SunShield (HJ-V7) deploys quickly and easily even with gloves on

  • Optically-Superior Anti-Scratch Pinlock Face Shield (HJ20M) features new 3D design with 95% UV protection
  • Face shield has anti-scratch coating and can be upgraded with optional Pinlock insert (sold separately)
  • RapidFire Shield Replacement System provides ultra-quick and tool-less removal and installation of the faceshield
  • 2-Stage faceshield closure system with one-touch center open/close shield locking system for an extremely tight and secure seal
  • ACS (Advanced Channeling Ventilation System) provides full front to back airflow which flushes heat and humidity up and out
  • SuperCool Interior made from anti-bacterial, moisture wicking fabric
  • Crown and cheekpads are fully removable and washable

This is my second IS-17. Good fit and price. Some noise but I ride with earplugs.
David W on Sep 21, 2015
I have had two HJC CL-16 helmets, the first one saved my life in a crash, the second is still being worn. I purchased this to upgrade to the extra ventilation and drop down visor. Excellent products at a very fair price. Highly recommended.

I like the interior sun shield that comes down and retracts with the press of a button. Very Nice.

An internal shield in a full-face helmet
Carla N on Dec 8, 2014
Based on the reviews, video and explanation. Looking for a touring helmet for an older rider with a rounder head. Price contentious as well. Good visibility with the internal visor.
Michael H on Sep 24, 2014
Two friends have HJC IS 33 models (purchased from RevZilla) and are impressed with the value. I've been wanting a new helmet, so thought I'd try HJC myself.
keith on Aug 1, 2014
HJC brand recognition and having owned HJC in past very good helmet. Also Revzilla helmet review sealed the deal for me.

inside sun visor, good noise reviews, experience with HJC helmets.
David H on May 21, 2014
I have had an HJC helmet in the past and was very satisfied with it. Recently I have been riding with a half helmet but find I miss the comfort from having a full-faced one. Since I'm commuting more with my bike I decided to pull the trigger and get one. THe IS-17 seems to have a good balance of features for the money. I was disappointed that none of the clearance items were available in my size but those are the breaks!
Shawn C on Apr 29, 2014
I did a lot of research looking for my first helmet and I landed on the HJC IS-17. It just seemed like a great deal on a helmet that is cool looking and has good features.
Edward G on Apr 16, 2014
The IS-17 is a good looking helmet with great features and a reasonable price. I wanted a helmet with an itegrated sun shield and good ventilation.
Gary R on Apr 12, 2014
I was looking for a small shell and low profile helmet with the drop down visor feature. Most of the others have a massive shell this one seemed to be low profile and still had every feature the expensive helmets that have different size shells have.
yeoshua l on Apr 10, 2014
I have the HJC FS-10 helmet and loved it,was just in need of a new helmet.
Cedric N on Apr 9, 2014
Have a HJC and like it. Have another brand with the sun visor and like that but not the helmet so decided a HJC with sun visor would be what I really need. Cannot wait to try this one.
Scott H on Mar 26, 2014
it was the cheapest helmet with all the features I wanted
David M on Feb 22, 2014
Least expensive helmet with the features I wanted

Drop down sun visor, quality brand, can't beat it for the money.
Jesse H on Nov 16, 2013
new version of a trusted performer, I will let you know if it is as good as the 16

I like the sun shade option and the fit is right
Renea on Jun 8, 2016
Great reviews. Supposedly fits intermediate oval head.
william o on Mar 19, 2016
Looking at an HJC IS-17 Helmet, what if my head measurement is 22-3/8"? It's between Small (ends at 22") and Medium (starts at 22-1/2). Any suggestions?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have this in XL and and it fits comfortable, so my guess is this helmet runs true to size so I would go with the medium. I once tried a helmet that was too snug and it gave me a headache. As long is it does not fit loose. You'll know right away as soon as you try it on, which would be good to do before taking off the tags in case it does not fit and has to be returned.

Good value, BTW. I like mine.
What is the difference between this model and the IS-16?
Nicholas Q on Oct 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Lighter, better ventilation, but most significantly is the new dropdown sunshade which retracts more quietly than the 16.
I own this helmet and like it allot however, I would like to have a darker sun visor. Do they make sun visors for the IS17 that are darker than the stock visor. Or is there a film that maybe I can use over my sun visor to make it darker? Thanks.
A shopper on Jan 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I dont think you could use a film tint on the internal visor mainly because of the double contour, and I dont think they offer a darker internal visor, you might check in the helmet accessories I do think they offer a tinted outer (Main) shield.
With the sun visor adjustment on the top of the helmet has anyone had issues with water leakage riding in the rain?
A shopper on Jul 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It doesnt rain much where I live, like 2 inches a year :P SO maybe I am not a good person to be answering, thught I'd help out though. However I have had no issues with that. We do get microfine dust storms though and not a bit of an issue. I will say though in temps above 100 it is warm inside, but really what helmet isnt at that temp ? I rather sweat than not wear a helmet though.
Will the visor stay open under speed if it's clicked to the smallest opening?
What is the measurement of the smallest opening you can set the visor to?
Can you purchase a chin skirt or do you think the one from my HJC IS-16 might fit?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: To answer first question yes it will stay down at high rates of speeds I have gone 95 + with mine and it never moved.

Second question I do not know the measurement but you can leave a very tiny gab and you can not notice it at all. And it will stay at that gab and not move.

Third question I don't have answer for that one. When i ride in colder weather I use a full face ski mask and that works great with the helmet.
I hope this helps you also the sun visor is amazing I love it and I have to wear glasses and the visor clears them completely.
Does the IS-17 have cutouts or space for communication system ear speakers?
Jeffrey D on Mar 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: there are no specific cutouts, however, I installed the smh10r in my is17 and there was plenty of space to fit the speakers behind the ear padding... while wearing the helmet, you would never know they were there
Is the stock sun shield smoke or dark smoke tint? Feedback on the internet is unclear, some say that they ordered the dark smoke shield separately and it was the same as the stock shield.
A shopper on Jan 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is really somewhere in between. I live in Texas and when I am on the road during the hours of 10:30am and 5:00pm the tint by itself is fine. When the sun is rising or setting I must where my dark tint sunglasses as well. I would suggest the yellow tint for all occasions in addition to sunglasses during the day and regular glasses at night if needed.
Which helmet breaths better for 20-40mph hot summer atv riding, HJC IS-17 or Gmax GM11?

I've tried many helmets locally and a medium HJC IS-16 fit perfect other than being just a tad tight. I have not tried any Gmax helmets and really like the dual sport look. I have yet to find a single dual sport helmet to try on locally. I am also torn on what size to get. I use an old large Vega full face on my daily commute to work that fits perfect and a tad tight as well. The last helmet I bought was a $300 medium Pyrotect Full face helmet for drag racing that was so tight my face hurt and I couldn't wear it longer than 10 minutes and had a hard time getting it on and off. My head measures 22-3/4" I figured on getting a size large helmet, but the Medium HJC IS16 fitting perfect threw me off and now I don't know what to get.
what do you think?
A shopper on May 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey there! Just bought the IS17 recently so I haven't had it on in hot weather just yet. I commute on a 2012 Shadow Sabre with no windshield. I've noticed that air does flow gently through the helmet. It should help exhaust the heat pretty well. I had owned an HJC CL-12 years ago and was always satisfied with the fit and comfort and that was in Florida heat and humidity. The design has definitely improved since then so I anticipate that this one will prove comfortable too. Hope this helps!
I'm torn between getting the HJC IS-17 or the FG-17. Which one has vents better suited for an upright riding position?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I cant comment on the fg-17 but Im very satisfied with the is-17. I have a street triple r, which is a bit more upright than your standard sport bike, and I always have a cool head, temperature-wise anyway. Where Im at, the weather this spring has fluctuated from the low 70's to the high 50's and the climate in my helmet has been very pleasant.
Which pinlock is compatible with this helmet? I bought the HJ-17 pinlock screen and discovered that it didn't fit. Can't find anything anywhere.
Phillip L on Nov 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: HJ-20m Max vision will work with this helmet with its stock shield.
