Best helmet I have ever bought.
Used to buying Shoei Helmets, but prices are substantially higher now. Had to replace my Shoei Helmet I've had since 1990, (Yes, I said 1990). Have a newer helmet I bought 4 years ago also. This helmet is kinda a pain when putting glasses on and is kinda heavy. Bought this modular HJC and was very surprised what I got for the money. Helmet is light, has much less wind noise than all other helmets I've owned, side vision is greater, and I can get my glasses on with no problems at all the first time, every time. Has same features as helmets costing 2 or 3 times more. Best helmet I've ever owned!!!! Definitely would buy HJC again.

Perfect fit for riders with dreads
I'm ecstatic about this helmet! Having dreads made it difficult to find a helmet that fit comfortably. I've gone through about 4 helmets, all leaving my mouth pressed against the inside, making it impossible to talk on my Sena bluetooth. Even though I had to get a 5XL, it was a perfect fit for me with my dreads and the mic for my Sena fit inside perfectly.

the helmet sizing needs to be worked on
the helmet fits a little tight, and I ordered a size bigger than the recommended. the padding will wear in I'm sure. other than the snug fit, I love this helmet.

Great helmet, small fit
I love the style and look of this helmet. Runs very small though. I normally wear a 2X in all helmets, but had to order a 3X in this helmet, as well as order the 5X cheek pads to make it more comfortable.

I like the new look. It also gets good airflow throughout the helmet. Although I haven't gotten to try during the summer yet, but so far so good.

One of the best helmets for the price
This was a great buy., My only complaint is the visor fogs a little more than it should. Comfortable, grate features, great wind protection.

Great helmet
All around functional and comfortable helmet. Dont think you get any more options to a helmet than the IS MAX II. Only problem I have had is that the silver side screws fall out periodically (never yet while riding). Love the inside slip down/up visor. Both wind shield and inside visor remove easy without any tools.

Great modular, great price
This is a great helmet. My second modular. The first one (a Scorpion) fit poorly and the chinbar wouldn't stay locked in the "up" position.

This one works perfectly. I rode up a rocky dirt fire road with the chinbar up and it didn't fall once, even though it doesn't "lock" up. It's a friction joint, but it is solid.

The rest of the helmet works great and is comfortable. The $4 snap in chin curtain is a must, if you are going to use a bluetooth communication system, because it's windy in there. I can't say if the helmet is loud, I wear earbuds attached to my sena. I will say, with the chin curtain, most people never know I'm talking to them on the phone while riding.

The top vent flows good air, I can feel it at speed.

Good value.

Easy to put on and take off with glasses
I have been shop for a modular helmet to buy so I wouldn't have to take my glasses off the put my helmet on. I have a HJC full face helmet. I am enjoying being able to ride with this great feature. It was exactly what I was looking for. I did buy the same size as my old helmet, but had to return it for the next size. The return and reorder was smooth and fast.

Was in the market for a modular and this one has a lot of features for the money. I especially like the internal sun visor and its three position settings. This was a must for me since I wear glasses.

STYLE AND FUNCTIONALITY AT A FAIR PRICE.
Alejandro R on May 24, 2016
Great modular helmet and price. I was very pleased at the way it fits and how versatile it is. I like the fact that it really fits well when wearing my eyeglasses. I still love my Shoei RF 1200 Dominance though.

After watching the video I felt it was a wise choice. Will provide a high level of protection and looks good as well. The videos you folks provide are spot on by the way.

great reviews from other customers
William W on Apr 25, 2016
After crashing in my Bell Revolver EVO, figured I'd give the HJC a shot. The EVO shape gave a pressure point on my forehead on longer rides. Not the reason I'm ditching the EVO... the face shield and front of helmet don't close properly after going down. Not a point against Bell... the helmet did its job!
Wildcard on Apr 19, 2016
Hoping the blue accent color matches the motorcycle. Her previous helmet was the IS Max BT so she is used to it. Couldn't tell any difference with helmets up to $650, so why spend more than you need to?
2wheeladdict on Apr 16, 2016
Its fairly light and comfy a little noisy but most helmets are. This helmet has pretty good ventilation although the visor actuation does take a little getting used to, the buttons are all very close to the same size so you have to try remember the order they are in. I would like to see the visor come down about a 1/4 to a 1/2 an inch further and be a little darker, but other than that, for the money its a great helmet. 4 out of 5 stars.

modular....sun visor...fit ( I already have an HJC and it fits great)
John O on Nov 9, 2015
I chose this helmet because it seems my head was designed and built by HJC. I already own the FG-Jet that I use for daily commuting but wanted a little more protection and quiet for long rides. I also looks very cool with 2014 CB1100.
neracode on Oct 29, 2015
I bought a smaller on and decided to get one larger and change the graphic at same time.

This helmet is comfortable and reasonably priced for a modular that also has a built in sun visor.
Chauncey L on Jul 28, 2015
Price point in a modular. This is my first modular but I have had many HJC Helmets and always been satisfied. This is the best HJC that I have had as the benefits of modular plus the drop down sun shield are amazing.
Shaun T on Jul 20, 2015
updating my IS-BT Max lid with this new one and am giving the hi-viz graphic a try. I also like that it is not to wild for a 52 year old guy riding a bmw.

I watched many youtube videos on helmets. the Nolan N104 evo and the scorpion transformer 900x both seemed inferior helmets This should be eyeglasses friendly and should be able to use a sena clamp for my aftermarket bluetooth instead of a sticky mount.

How reflective are the decals on the side? Is the green just as reflective as yellow/"hi-viz green" ?
Jonny O on Aug 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not as reflective.
What is the difference between the Elemental and the regular IS-Max 2?
A shopper on Mar 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Looks like the difference is the color/pattern of the helmet.
How many shell sizes does this helmet come in?
A shopper on Oct 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 3
What does it weigh?
A shopper on May 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I put mine on our kitchen scale and it weights 4.0 LB and it is a XXL! I have been riding with it for a week and am very happy with my choice!
Does this helmet come with a Chin skirt?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. It does not have a chin skirt.
I have the original Is max helmet and almost coming up on time to replace this helmet. Does anyone know the difference between the Is-Max and Is Max 2?
Ryan P on Jul 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are the same in function. The IS Max 2 has more ports to draw air through the helmet. It has the inner shade visor and easier chin latch to flip the face shield up. The face shield seem to be further from my glasses which kept them from pushing against my temples. One draw back to me on the ISMAX 2 was the noise level inside was louder than the IS Max.
How does this compare to a LS2 strobe?
ryan k on Jul 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure about the LS2 strobe, but love this helmet
Is this helmet Bluetooth compatible?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not sure if you're asking if it has Bluetooth or if it will fit. I put the Sena 10R in this helmet and it works fine. I did accidently rip out the microphone when I lifted up the modular face, but I replaced it with the boom mic and that works better.
Can you please share how much it weighs?
A shopper on Mar 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: don't know exact weight, but helmet is extremely light for it's size. Great helmet I like it.
I own the HJC CL-MAX II in a size 4XL. Does anyone know if the IS-MAX II/Elemental runs the same size/fit as the CL-MAX II? If so I can buy in confidence. Saw the comments on running small compared to other brands but wonder about other HJC Models.
Simon C on May 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: it fits the same as my other HJC helmet.
