HJC IS-17 Helmet 4.4 5 19 19
Tough to beat for the price! This is the second HJC Helmet that I have owned with the internal visor, the first was the IS 16. Both helmets are incredible values and offer a lot of bang for the buck! On the plus side; The helmet is lightweight and offers great visibility, visor and sunshade are easy to operate and it is really comfortable to wear. High level of fit, finish and materials at this price point! On the minus side; Controls on the vents are a little small and can be difficult to operate with gloves on. There doesn't seem to be a lot of airflow in this helmet. The visor is not as dark as I would like. I usually end up putting sunglasses on if it's a really sunny day which at times makes me wonder why I didn't just go with their regular helmet vs spending the extra on the sun visor. For less than $200 this is definitely a tough deal to beat! August 1, 2014
excellent product Stylish great fit and great value item. One push sun visior is awesome feature July 28, 2014
A lot of helmet for the money This is a really nice helmet for the price. It seems to be made from high quality materials and has a nice finish. I like the central latch for the face shield which allows use with either hand. The vents are easy to operate but less effective than I had hoped they would be. On really hot days I have to leave the shield open one notch to increase air flow. One of the best things about this helmet is the built in sun shade. Some reviewers say it isn't dark enough, but I think it's OK. You could combine it with a smoke colored screen to get more protection. My head measurement falls right between L and XL so I went with L because that's what I have worn with other brands. The fit is perfect for my slightly oval shaped noggin. I found the cheek pads to be too tight so ordered a thinner pair. My only real complaint is that this is a pretty noisy helmet. On most rides I wear foam ear plugs which reduce the harshness of the noise without getting in the way of hearing traffic. The IS-17 is a great helmet for anyone on a budget. July 16, 2014
Great Helmet Had a CL16 was in an accident walked away with concussion, went back to HJC love the IS17 because I wear glasses and can't just throw sunglasses on when it's bright. Only thing I would like to see would be a SNELL approval. It is SHARP 5 star rated only downfall I have yet too find with this helmet. Doesn't feel any hotter from the CL16. Great buy would just love too see a Snell from HJC for next year. July 7, 2014
Great buy Love this helmet the sun shades never get in the way with my glasses and air flow is great no fogging June 23, 2014
great value Looking for bang for the buck this is the way to go. Wish it came with a chin curtain, and the tinted visor included is a very light smoke. I would upgrade these two things. I don't think it's too loud though, I love it! June 12, 2014
great helmet for the price Just got this helmet yesterday and I love it. I wanted/needed a sun visor and i did not want to spend a lot of money. This fit the bill perfectly. Feels snug and comfortable, almost as nice as Icon's helmets. Sun visor is amazing, air flow is great, weight is not noticeable. I would buy again. June 8, 2014
Good Full Face Helmet It's a decent full face helmet. It is the first full face i've owned. I don't like the low visibility but I can't compare it with any experience. I think it is a solid product though. May 20, 2014

keith: 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. Aug 1, 2014

David H: inside sun visor, good noise reviews, experience with HJC helmets. May 21, 2014
Shawn C: 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! Apr 29, 2014
Edward G: 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. Apr 16, 2014
Gary R: 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. Apr 12, 2014
yeoshua l: 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. Apr 10, 2014
Cedric N: I have the HJC FS-10 helmet and loved it,was just in need of a new helmet. Apr 9, 2014
Scott H: 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. Mar 26, 2014
David M: it was the cheapest helmet with all the features I wanted Feb 22, 2014
Rodger G: Least expensive helmet with the features I wanted Jan 30, 2014

A shopper asked: 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? Sep 26, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
John M: 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.

A shopper asked: With the sun visor adjustment on the top of the helmet has anyone had issues with water leakage riding in the rain? Jul 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matthew M: 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. Jul 8, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joseph B: 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 Mar 24, 2014

Camilo S: no it doesn't. in my case i have a cardo g4, i have to use the sticky mount. didn't want to praye the helmet in order to put the clamp mount. however the sitcky mount did not worked to well Mar 24, 2014

A shopper asked: 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?
Thanks.
Jun 25, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
zach n: 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.
Jun 26, 2014
Reply to zach Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Gary R: The visor will stay open at highway speeds when set at the first click. The visor's detents are pretty firm and it will stay wherever you put it.

The smallest opening is about 1/4". I almost always have it set at this position on hot days.

There is a chin skirt available. It is made of a mesh material so I cut a piece of thin closed cell foam and placed it between the skirt and the lower rim of the helmet. The IS-16 has a rounder shape at the front than the IS-17 so I'm not sure if the skirts are interchangable.

I hope this helps.

yeoshua l: The visor does stay open under speed, it's fairly solid and has a nice variety of options. I don't know the measurement but it is a nice range of motion and fairly sturdy in each Jun 26, 2014

Scott H: The smallest opening is about an inch gap. I tried it this afternoon and it snapped shut at about 35.
No idea on the chin skirt.

A shopper asked: 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. Jan 21, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
STACY C: 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. Jan 23, 2014

A shopper asked: 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?

Shawn C: 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! May 29, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Paul M: 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. Apr 16, 2014

David L: Can't answer about the FG. I have the HJC. I ride a Yamaha FJR1300. So I am riding behind an adjustable wind screen as well as upright. I live in the Cincinnati Ohio area so we have yet to have steamy weather. So far I like the helmet very well,and would recommend it to any other rider Apr 21, 2014
