Safe, hi-viz, great helmet with a few small flaws
Got this helmet mostly because of its 5-star SHARP rating. And for the internal sun visor and the hi-viz. Safety is super important, there is up to a 70% difference in the safety of helmets, and it doesn't depend much on price. Check out SHARP.
A solid color hi viz would have been nice, but this graphic is enough and very bright. It's a beautiful helmet. I am going to add a few more hi-viz stickers to finish it out.
I have never owned another street helmet, so I have nothing to compare to, but this helmet seems loud and buffets around in the wind. Not a big deal.
The eye opening is kind of small as far as top to bottom. Good for blocking the sun though lol.
The internal visor is cool although it's not very dark. Mine doesn't retract perfectly. However its a very cool feature.
Pinlock ready is a cool feature, and especially because it takes an extra large Max Vision pinlock insert so pretty much the entire field of view is fog free when you install that.
Fogs up really bad in cool weather so I'm getting the pinlock. A little soap works pretty well too, how to do that is online.
In the end its a very safe (5 star SHARP rating) hi-viz helmet with a sun visor for less than $200. It's not perfect but it's great.

Good helmet for a very reasonable price
This is my second HJC helmet. The first one began falling apart after five years! I'm ok with that. This one is quieter and the Hi Viz is really cool looking on an FJR. My only complaint is that the mechanism that actuates the internal visor does not work as smoothly as I would like. When you hit the button to retract, it only retracts 90% of the way, and you have to fuss with it sometimes to put the visor down.
Working with Revzilla over the phone was awesome!

I've taken the Hi-Viz version of IS-17. Never tried Pinlock before - found this feature very usefull.
One bad thing about sun visor. After about 5 times of use it became bad-working.

A D:I think the noise level is about 3. But I haven't tried other helmets, this is the second one. I can't speak over Bluetooth on speeds over 50 miles/hour becouse of the wind. And when you close the visor ventilation it starts to whistle, so I ride with chin vent hole always open.Sep 1, 2014
