HJC IS-17 Helmet 4.2 5 67 67
Great Features for Under $200 I upgraded to this helmet after using a HJC CL-16 for 5 years, the CL16 in large had always been a bit big on me so I went to a medium for this helmet, which after a couple hours of riding was just the right amount of snug. For a helmet in the sub $200 category its nice having the flip down visor, and the quick shield detach seems much more durable and smooth than the older HJC shield locking system. Wind noise isn't the best but definitely better than other budget helmets I've worn. Overall very happy with the helmet. November 15, 2015
Good entry level helmet I bought this helmet for the internal sun visor, and because of Matte Black. Fits well, but pretty noisy. Visor works well, but I would prefer it a bit darker. Comfortable, and room to install a Bluetooth speaker system. October 19, 2015
A real let down. I have an IS-16 (daily use) that needed to be replaced. I also have the LS-17 for long adventures and thought the IS-17 would be an improvement over the IS-16. They really talk it up but it is really bad. It is the loudest helmet I have ever used, including MX, 3/4, and 1/2 helmets. The paint is very thin and rubs off. It does not flow as much air as the IS-16. The LS-17 flows more air than both but has no internal visor. The new visor is a little better but still not dark enough. It is way overpriced, It would be ok for $100 less. Still looking for a good commuter helmet... November 16, 2015
Excellent Helmet for the money with one complaint This is a fantastic helmet considering what I paid. Comfortable, good fit, looks nice. My only complaint is that the internal visor isn't tinted very strongly, so I find myself shopping around for a darker visor. I would have been better off with the CL-17. September 30, 2015
Could be 5-Stars if I did not have to fix some issues out of the box I was a little disappointed initially with this helmet. 1. The pressure boom inside was intolerable over 40mph for rides longer than 45 min. It literally felt like my head was going to explode after a long ride. Installing the HJC Chin Shield fixed this. HJC, its $5, just put it in the box with the helmet. So buy this with the helmet (Link Below) 2. Visor fogged over pretty easy. Installing the clear Pinlock made fog a thing of the past. Buy it with the helmet (Link Below) 3. Horrible clicking noise from the left side of helmet. After the third ride with the helmet I could not take it anymore. I called Revzilla and spoke with Josh. He offered to take it back under warranty but suggested that I look at the visor pivot first and make sure it was factory seated right and there was no slag in there (Had not removed it at this point to install pinlock visor). Sure enough I remove the visor and reinstalled and the clicking is gone. Go Josh!!! I have removed and installed the visor a few more times and it has not come back, so I think we are good. 4. Internal visor is not a replacement for sunglasses and that is a HUGE disappointment. I am tempted to buy the dark smoke IS visor but reviews state its not much better. This is a disappointment as this is the real reason I bought this helmet, to wear with my prescription glasses on long rides. 5. Inside the helmet there is a small cushion liner at the top. At speed this liner would bounce between the top of my head the top of my helmet. I fixed this with a piece of Velcro between the cushion and the foam core. Problem gone. Now that I have fixed some of the initial issues it is a very nice helmet save for the internal shield that is too light and reviews saying the dark shield is not any better. Again, a Big disappointment. I have gotten a few compliments on its design and looks. It is very comfortable, maybe a tad tight on my cheeks. September 24, 2015
Good value This helmet is a great value for the price, and the retractable sun shield is indispensable. Wind noise is a bit loud inside. Two things are different from my old IS-16: the XS is quite a bit tighter (could be my old XS stretched out over time), and the sun shield retractor seems not so good. In my older IS-16, the sun shield snapped up and down reliably and solidly (although the lever on top broke off easily when i dropped the helmet once from about 2 feet off the ground). On my new IS-17, the sun shield retracts slowly and not completely. I have a feeling these parts are not made to last, but we'll see. Overall, it's still a good looking helmet and a good value. September 8, 2015
New female rider This is the first full face helmet I have used, keep that in mind with my ratings above as I have nothing to compare to. I did much research on helmets and got lots of feedback that this was a great first full face helmet. Thus far, I have been very happy with it. I started off riding with just a half helmet and this helmet has done wonders for making me feel safe and confident in my riding. The only strain on my neck was for about the first two hours of wear, and then it was a non-issue after that. Going from the half helmet to the full helmet, I was worried about my field of vision, and although I definitely think the field of vision could be a little wider, we should be turning our heads anyway. I absolutely love the drop down visor. It leaves just enough room on my nose and cheeks to not cause any field of vision issues looking down. It could be a little darker, but it does the job. Also works fine with a few different eyeglasses I have. I like the mechanism a lot too. Occasionally it doesn't retract fully, but we're talking maybe 2 centimeters and it is in no way impairing vision. I have noticed there is a small rattling now, and I think it's this visor. Occasionally I find it annoying but I have a music earbud in most of the time anyway. I'm not sure if the locking visor is any different from a helmet that doesn't have a lock but instead has a tight gasket, but I like it. I think the locking mechanism is easier to find and use than finding a small plastic tab that most other helmets have. In the month I've had it, I have ridden in 90 degree weather, 50 degree weather and rain (welcome to buffalo). I didn't find my head sweating in the heat, but I also didn't feel any significant ventilation unless the visor was open. In the pretty heavy rain there was no fogging and vision wasn't impaired at all. One 50 degree night I had no problem with the visor fogging up, then the next night I did. I'm not sure what that was attributed to. I did notice though that if you just crack the shield for a second then close it, it doesn't begin to fog back up again. The vent definitely needs to be open though if the visor is closed. Which wasn't a problem even in the cold temperatures. I am very picky about what is touching my neck, and I love how comfortable the strap is. I also love the breath guard. Small features but important for me. My biggest issue with this helmet that would stop me from buying again is the lack of a quality chin skirt, even as an additional purchase. In the cooler weather the only part of my body to be cold was my chin/upper neck. When I used my own underarmour type sleeve to cover my neck up to my mouth, it must have blocked the venting and I was unable to ride with the visor closed without it fogging up. October 1, 2015
Great sub $200 dollar helmet I bought this helmet for a number of reasons, first the integrated sun shield is a must. There is no substitute for not needing to wear sunglasses under your visor. For those that are considering tinted visors instead, just wait until you want to block out the wind and keep debris from you eyes, but its either; nighttime riding, cloudy, under an overpass, fogged. The integrated sun shield allows you to use the always cover your eyes, while using the clear visor during those times above when you want to see every aspect of the road to avoid potholes and such, but also keep your eyes clear and blocked or on those sunny days, or if you want both. Great quality helmet, for a great price. And the matte black looks awesome! August 11, 2015

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.

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 ?

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?
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 (2) 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.

A shopper asked: 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. Jan 31, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Frederich T: 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. Feb 3, 2015
Reply to Frederich Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
David L: If you refer to the interior shield it is smoke. I bought the dark smoke for the exterior shield which I like a lot. I ride an FJR so I can put it up at night if needed. Great helmet by the way. Feb 4, 2015

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

Michael H: I did not find another darker shield; I went to an auto store and bought shade material for windows. It was easy to apply the film and works great! 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

PAUL B: I've never used the gmax but the is-17 has minimal venting. I can't imagine that the gmax would be worse. May 29, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm torn between getting the HJC IS-17 or the FG-17. Which one has vents better suited for an upright riding position? Apr 16, 2014

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

A shopper asked: HJC IS-17 VS HJC FG-17. Which one is one is better in terms noise level, scratch resistant and comfortable in your head?. FYI HJC FG-17 not easy to get in my country. Hope someone can comment here. Thanks Mar 12, 2015

David L: I only have the one style of helmet. Noise level is not loud at all to me. Not sure what country you are from but I am sure that "scratch resistant" is the same in any country. If you don't take care of your stuff...it's gonna get scratched. I have owned my helmets for over a year, not one scratch! Mar 13, 2015
