Great helmet for the price point
I picked up one of these last season after having spent the season before it with a bare-bones full-face. If I had the budget for it, my first choice would be a Schuberth: but for the price point, I'm incredibly happy with my IS-Max.

Noise: A little more than my old full-face, but nothing excessive.

Convenience: Nothing short of fantastic. I love being able to make a fuel/water/bathroom stop without having to take off my gloves and helmet completely, and putting them back on again. The internal sunvisor lets me keep my eyes protected while getting some wind during the day, and fits well even when I'm wearing my glasses.

Bluetooth compatibility: I ride with a Sena SMH10. It took about 15-20min of fiddling to get the positioning of the clamp right, but it sits pretty damned perfectly. Earphone pockets make room for the speakers very well.

Good value, with a few caveats
I chose this helmet because I love the convenience of a modular helmet, but still wanted something fairly sporty and aggressive looking to go with my CBR. I was debating between this and the Bell Revolver, and in the end I'm glad I decided to go HJC.

It's quiet compared to my previous modular, but still loud as far as full face helmets go. That's par for the course; you can't block every little bit of air coming in through the modular seams. At first I was worried about comfort: I've been ordering medium helmets in various brands for years and have never had an issue with fit, but when I first put this helmet on, it felt tight, especially around my cheeks. I'm happy to report that it has loosened up after a few hours of riding, and now it's comfortable as can be. The feature set for this price point is good, with one caveat (which I'll go over later). Internal sunvisor, room enough for a small bluetooth system, 2 vents.

Now, a few nitpicks.

This helmet does not come with a chin curtain. I believe for a $200 helmet, something so basic should be a given. I ordered one for an additional $12.

The internal sunvisor is great to have, but I am disappointed with how light it is. It helps minimally on sunny days, to the point that you'd probably be better off with a $5 pair of sunglasses -- or if you do most of your riding during the day, just invest in a dark visor.

Last nitpick; the top of the visor does not seal well. There is a rubber border, but it doesn't touch the entire visor and allows air (and noise) to seep in.

Overall, though, I am pleased with the helmet and have confidence it will protect me in the event of an accident. Besides the issues I listed, the fit & finish is excellent. This was my first HJC and likely won't be my last.

Great price
Picked this up since HJC is one of the few that make an XXXL size in modular.

I have to say I'm pleased with the helmet as a whole.

Pros: Nice style, good fit, visor colors, air flow, good price

Cons: Wind noise, vents, slide down visor

The slide down visor is a nice feature and I was psyched to get one but sad to say I hardly use it because it doesn't come down far enough for me and obstructs my view.
There is quite a bit of air flow regardless of vent positions and I personally can't tell if they're opened or closed while riding.

Overall a very nice helmet especially for the price and other than the slide down visor being my main disappointment I can say that I like this helmet.

Multiple features offered in a comfortable helmet
This was my first HJC brand and my first modular I've owned. My noggin measures 59cm/22 1/4in. As with all my previous helmets I've owned, I went with a Large and the fit was spot on for my oval noggin. I've owned primarily Arai in the past, and they do make a good helmet - they unfortunately don't make a modular version. So I went with HJC for the modular preference. I also chose the Anthracite color which looks way better in real life than online. After reading about potential fogging issues, I added the pinlock anti-fog shield and a chin-curtain to this purchase. I haven't ridden in the rain yet with this lid, so I can't speak to it's effectiveness on anti-fogging. But I find a foggy visor to be both extremely annoying as well as really unsafe. So taking measures to curb this makes sense to me. I love the sun shield on this helmet. It is slightly too light, but never-the-less a really welcome feature in a helmet (at this price range.) The modular aspects of this lid work excellent. Easy to use, nice here in Texas at red lights to help get a little cooler air around my face. The venting could be better, although I ride with my visor up - sun shield down while riding most of the time anyway. So for me, this isn't as much of an issue as some reviews have stated. The chin strap is ok. I wish it had one of those cloth tabs on the one D-ring to help manipulate with feeding the strap through the two D rings when putting the helmet on. I've been thinking of adding one homemade tab to mine. The liner feels decent, but could be a little softer. But not a deal breaker at all. Overall I really like this helmet! Very pleasantly surprised with the overall quality in this lid, considering the price! HJC - make the liner softer and the tint on the visor a shade darker - increase ventilation and even with a price increase of $100 making this a $300 helmet would be a very welcome thing in my opinion. Thanks for the assistance and great customer service Revzilla! Much appreciated!

Awsome Helmet for the Price.
I bought two of these helmets for my wife and I, I installed the Sena S20 on both. The helmets fit true to the size and are comfortable on long rides(100+ miles). They do have a little more noise that I like but I can still hear my radio and intercom loud and clear. These are a very good helmet for the price. Thanks for the review on your YouTube channel.

First modular helmet, couldn't be happier.
This is my second helmet, and my first modular.
It is leaps and bounds better than my last helmet, an old HJC full face. Being modular, it is extremely convenient when I need to speak to someone at stops, and can't be bothered removing the helmet from my head. The internal sun visor has proven to be an excellent feature, as I don't need to bring my sunglasses with me anymore when I ride, and I don't need to keep taking them on and off when stopping. A simple slide to activate, and press to hide. Amazing.

Regarding the airflow going in, I've found it to be a little lacking compared to my other HJC, but I think this is offset by the fact that the vents at the back work really well so even if there isn't that much air coming in, it's not hot inside because the hot air is vented really well.

One complaint I have is that it does not come with a pinlock insert, but I can just transfer the one that came with my previous helmet to this one.

Great product, would definitely recommend. Thanks HJC and thanks Revzilla!

HJC IS-Max 2 Helmet - Solid
Great Helmet, Great Price. Had all the features I was looking for and then some at the price point I was looking for.
Did not feel heavy at all, no wind noise to complain about.
The Sun Visor comes in handy! Since I wear prescription glasses, don't have to worry about flipping back and forth between regular and sunglasses. Just flip the Sun Visor down
and you are good to go!
Also nice to do all operations with one hand.
Great Job HJC!

Great price for a full-featured helmet
Revzilla gave a great price, and delivered it in a few days, very well packed. The helmet is tight on my jawline, even after getting it 1 size bigger than my measurements.
The airflow through the little hole in the front, and the little hole on the top was very weak. It was getting hot inside.
The visor knob on the top of the helmet broke off on my second ride, when I pushed the knob fully forward. The visor snapped back up into the helmet. I don't know what to do to fix it...
Wind buffeting is noticeable and the wind noise is there, but not too loud. The button to open up the shell works very well. The strap is cheap. The windshield tightens down when in the fully closed position, and holds all positions firmly.
The helmet feels very light, and the vision is superb.

Moving from a XXXL Nolan N104
The 4XL HJC IS Max 2 is a nice helmet for my larger than average head. I have tried on many helmets (almost every brand and model Modular 2 3 4 XL Helmet on display at the 2014 Orlando Motorcycle expo. The Nolan N104 XXXL was the best fit.

After about 6 months and a few thousand miles I found I could never get rid of the Nolan hot spots. Also the Nolan was not an easy fit for my SENA 20S system.

PRO
The HJC IS Max 2 fit better, flows more air, works better with the physical mounting of the Sena 20S than the Nolan (For my head). The Nolan also rattles through the top vent. HJC is lighter than my Nolan.
CON
Visor not as smooth in operation or clear as the Nolan
Lining and chin strap better on the Nolan
Customer service at Nolan is world case compared to HJC
More lower chin area wind noise than Nolan (no chin wind guard on the HJC)
If you live in cold areas the Nolan is warmer, but in Florida it is not needed as much as the higher ventilation the HJC has
Only has standard D rings compared to the quick release on the Nolan
The visor on the HJC is closer to my nose than the Nolan

OVERALL

I wish I found the HJC 4XL Is Max 2 before the Nolan N104. I hope 6 months from now I am still as happy as the first 100 miles usage of my new HJC helmet.

I got this because even HJC doesn't make their top-line helmets in XXXL sizing anymore. It is "o.k." as I don't have any choice of a full quality helmet in this size. It is a noisy lid. Modular is nice to have, and this one works, but it is made of soft plastic. It is far from confidence inspiring coming from years of Shoei helmets, but they quit making them in sizes that fit my head. The internal sun visor is not sized properly for someone with a XXXL head and hits my nose.

Great Revzilla review for the money. Lot's of features and a sharp look. Very good consumer reviews also. It's exactly the same helmet that Harley sells in stores, just minus the Harley Graphics for about $60 less.

It is a four star rated "SHARP" helmet which is good for a modular. I already own one. I have big ears and the ear holes are good for me. It fits both me and my wife so I bought another.

Definitely a really good helmet for the price. Snug, quite enough, and comes ready for a pin lock anti-fog system. My head is definitely more oval than round, and this helmet fits me perfectly. I would label it right on the edge of intermediate oval and long oval.

Wwouldnot recommend this helmet really noisy
Bert O on Jun 4, 2016
This helmet runs very small compared to the one I replaced, which was the same model and supposedly the same size. Good value for the money - but double check your size before you buy.

The price was right and the video review was great. I really wanted a Kabuto, but it was on closeout and not in my size. I'm hoping this helmet will live up to the reviews posted.

Best quality vs. price helmet on the market

Decent priced modular helmet. Only surprise was that the chin curtain wasnt included however I would highly recommend purchasing the chin curtain along with the helmet. The fitment is great it is a fantastic looking helmet. Not as agressive as some the other options.

I choose this helmet for my wife, she likes HJC helmets as they seem to fit her the best all so dealing with Revzilla has always been a great experience for me. First store I always go to

My primary riding helmet. I have a really, really round head. This helmet was about as close as I could get.

Great video review and nice upgrades from the IS MAX BT
Michael C on Mar 28, 2016
My husband chose this particular helmet because of the benefits of the modular helmet. We always had a full face helmet in the past but with now needing new helmets, he tried the HJC modular and knew this was the purchase he would make.

I have the HJC IS-max-II helmet and I was wondering where I could get a different face shield color. If I buy a HJC IS-max (previous model) face shield, will it fit on my helmet?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Just goggled and found out the HJ-17 shield fits. see on revzilla
HJC HJ-17 Faceshield
Replacement face shield for HJC IS-MAX, IS- Max 2, IS-MAX BT, CL-Max 2 and SyMax 3 Helmets.
Hi. I was wondering if anyone has the Is-max 2 in the anthracite color? I'm trying to tell if it's more of a blue gray or more of a dark silver. Thanks for any answers.
A C on Feb 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I agree. It's more of a dark grey. But there is a subtle blue undertone vs. brown undertone which is also common for anthracite.
This is the first helmet I bought. I try others on in the Harley Store to determine I need a medium. After getting this one in the mail it was surprisingly tight on my check bones and squeezed my check flesh together. I picked this one because i have what i believe to be a round head. But now I'm not sure.
Do I need to get a more round helmet or do I need to go up in size?
lloyd e on Mar 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought this helmet for my girl friend after buying her a Shark Evo-line ( that didn't fit no matter that size). She had HJC before so keeping her in helmet that I knew fit was my best choice. A proper fitting helmet in my experience will be a little tight in the beginning on the cheeks. The helmet expands overtime to conform to your head better As long as your not getting pressure point on the fore head and your cheeks are not getting squeezed so that you have fish lips. It should be a great fitting helmet.
Which SENA Bluetooth communication kit is suitable for this helmet?
A shopper on Aug 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a modular helmet -- the best mic to use is the wired boom mic (I have a 20s). The wired mic is the hybrid mic between a wired mic (best for full face) and a boom mic (best for 1/2 helm). You place the wired boom underneath the check padding so the boom mic is dead center of the front. Works great in both full face and 1/2 helm mode.
Will a SENA SMH 10 fit well on this helmet ?

BEST ANSWER: Yes it will,I have had one on my helmet since I purchased it.
I was interested in possibly purchasing the HJC IS Max 2 Modular Helmet and noticed that the mechanism to lower the internal visor is located on the top of the helmet. I was wondering if I should be concerned with it eventually leaking after long term use or is there some type of seal that totally prevents this?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have been using this helmet a couple of months now, and I'm a daily rider. Though I have been in the rain with it a few times, I have not had any leaks. However, I also use the internal sun visor very little as I prefer to wear sun glasses on bright days. As for whether or not frequent use of the visor would eventually produce a leak, I can't say I know. But, I would imagine that on rainy rides, you wouldn't be using the sun visor, so perhaps in its raised position, the control would "seal" and prevent leakage. As a whole, the helmet is much lighter that the previous modular helmet I had (Scorpion), which makes it much more comfortable, and still feels solid. The ventilation is great, and I added a chin curtain, which does a great job keeping the wind out on those colder days.
I have a CL-16 and always ride with a dark smoke Pinlock. I carry a clear shield and Pinlock in my gear bag, but I'm curious about using the internal visor with glasses. Does anyone have experience with glasses behind the internal visor?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use the internal visor and it seems a little tight but starting to loosen up. I have an older version of this helmet and when I used the sunglasses because the visor broke because a friend did not take care of it, the sunglasses actually gave me a headache because they were pressed hard against the head. However, now that I have this one the shades part is awesome. They are perfect for the sun and I lived in NC when I used it on sunny days and here in MASSACHUSETTS. The fact that you were glasses though I don't think the internal visor is close enough to the glasses to properly bother them so get a size bigger so it wont be pressed to hard against your temple.
I currently use an HJC FS-3. I'm thinking of replacing it with HJC IS-Max II. My current helmet is medium, should the fit on the IS-Max II I be the same? Also, how is the side viability on the IS-Max II?
Thanks
A shopper on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I had the HJC IS-BT Max, they fit very similarly as far as size. The IS Max II is a bit more snug in the cheek area, but feels better constructed. Which is good because my old one held up like a champ during a low side about 2 months ago. Protected my face from being eaten away by concrete.
will scala riders fit well in this helmet?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Scala ear phones are smaller than Harley's so they should fit just fine. I really like this helmet!!
What are the knobs sticking out of the visor for? They are on the left and right of the visor.
Shawn R on May 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Shawn, the knobs are the mounting posts for something called a pin lock. That's a piece of plastic that mounts on the inside of the visor like a second layer to prevent the visor from fogging up when completely closed. I commute daily by motorcycle year round. I used to have a different helmet without a pin lock and would commonly get visor fogging, especially on colder, damper winter days. Now, with the pin lock, I get no fogging at all. I highly recommend it!
