HJC IS-Max 2 Helmet - Solid 4.7 5 15 15
Excellent, as expected. I have felt for some time I need a full face helmet to keep my contact lenses from drying and popping out...a very bad circumstance... so I have an older Helmet...HJC SyMax (no number, Just SyMax). I have always appreciated its fit and function. Its old now and I really need a bit more cooling for Texas riding... and the IS Max II (2?) is exactly what I needed. Superb venting...even with the vents closed. This will make the spring and autumn rides WAY comfortable. Noise control is impressive...so much so I forgot my ear plugs and didn't remember until 75% done with my ride. I only remembered as I thoughtfully regarded the helmet I was wearing and realized I was spongy-doodleless. The next day I realized I was being buffeted by 10-15 mph crosswinds and wasn't really hearing the harshest buffeting inside the helmet. I thought I must be mistaken and maybe it had something to do with the wind direction...but a crosswind is just that. WONDERFUL HELMET! This is a 9 month Texas helmet. I purchased an IS-33 for the summer(other 3 months). Contact lenses or not...the venting, fit, construction, functions, and field of view are great in the SyMax II and the IS-33! March 2, 2015
Excellent Value This is my third HJC helmet, and I will continue to use their product. The IS-Max 2 provides great bang for the buck. Seems to offer everything the high end helmets offer, but at a very affordable price point. I use the modular version for street riding solo on my v-strom, and an open face HJC for riding a Can Am with my wife. I also have a Nolan N-2, and really can't place one over the other except for the Nolan being a little quieter. March 2, 2015
Versatile Great all around helmet. My size 3XL melon is not easy to shop for but HJC fills the bill here. March 2, 2015
pros: fair price, nice style, quiet, good weight, great ventilation, drop-down shades. cons: chin curtain not included ($4.99) pros: fair price, nice style, quiet, good weight, great ventilation, drop-down shades. cons: chin curtain not included ($4.99). shades could drop down a tiny bit more March 2, 2015
A great helmet for the price. My wife and I are fifth year riders. We started out with 3/4 HJC helmets, then went with Harley half helmets. I decided that we needed a lot more protection. Looked at full faced and didn't even consider modular at first, The wife got a little claustrophobic with the full face, tried the modular and she said she could do this. Since we'd had HJC helmets before we tried the IS MAX 11. Our measurements indicated a small for her and a medium for me, but we ended up with a medium for her and a large for me, they run a little small. Have only rode about 4 hours with them so far. Very quiet, little or no wind buffeting, and good ventilation. The left cheek pad bothered me after a while. I called revzilla about different size cheek pads, they recommended compressing the pad to speed up breakin, haven't had a chance to try it again (still snowing). Really like the helmets and revzilla is great to deal with. February 24, 2015
Little noisy. Definitely need the chin curtain. Otherwise, I love it. Good product, worth the price. With the chin curtain it will be good to go. February 9, 2015
Love the Modular This is my first modular helmet and I love it! So much easier to stop for a drink now and also easier to have a conversation without screaming. The one complaint I have is it seems like the top vent is always slightly open... On a cold day (30's) a constant flow of air to specific point on my head was not a good feeling... But other than that, a total home run. February 2, 2015
Fit a little small but great helmet I had to return the first and go for 5xl. By measuring my head I should have been a 2 or 3xl. Maybe my head is strangely shaped. I have had an Max 1 helmet for 3 seasons and loved it. This one seems more of the same. Comfortable, quiet enough, even lighter. I got a chin curtain to make it even more quiet. Overall, a fantastic helmet for the money. January 26, 2015

Byron D: Best overall value. I own other HJC brand helmets.
Has the features I want.
Feb 10, 2015
Ed F: Cost, features, past experience with HJC. Wouldn't mind having a Shoei or Nolan, but can't find the difference in value. Have a Nolan full-face, have had two HJCs; happy with both brands, but unable to differentiate in comfort, noise control, ventilation, etc. Really like the Nolan quick release, but I can add one of those for $10. Not $150 - $200 difference. Feb 9, 2015
Wilson C: The great video and detailed information provided on the pros and cons of the helmet. The great price didn't hurt either. When I need a product relating to riding, I will consider Revzilla first. Feb 9, 2015

Arnold K: Currently have IS Max I helmets. Have served us well for past 5 years or so. Also appreciated the video review of the IS Max II helmets. Looking forward to wearing them. Nov 25, 2014
L U: it's modular and has a retractable sunshield...also based off reviews on how quiet it is vs previous version(s) and other helmets in this price range, also the pin-lock ready visor. Nov 8, 2014
Richard C: I had tried one on and liked the style and comfort this helmet affords. After discussion with a RevZilla CSR to get a few comparison questions answered, I decided to make the purchase. I believe it's an excellent helmet for the price. I do a lot of tour riding and I purchased two of them, one for me and one for my passenger. I am having an integrated communication system installed in both helmets to facilitate our communication as well as enjoy music while riding. Oct 23, 2014
A shopper asked: 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? Mar 5, 2015

Charles P: 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. Mar 6, 2015

Arnold K: Not to worry. I rode many miles in a HJC IS Max (the original) in all kinds of weather without a leak. The inner shield opened the same way. I don't anticipate any leaks with my new IS Max 2. Mar 6, 2015

Richard C: I have had my helmet for several months now and have had no issues with it leaking. It's comfortable, reduces road noise and does well in the rain. I'm very pleased with it. Mar 6, 2015

Thomas B: I have only been in rain a couple of times and have never had a problem. I like the helmet and based on what you get for the price I would purchase this one again. Mar 6, 2015

A shopper asked: will scala riders fit well in this helmet? Dec 30, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Richard C: I'm not familiar enough with the Scala rider system to determine if it will mount properly on the outside of the helmet. I took my helmet to J & M and had an internal system installed which works perfectly! There is plenty of room between the face shield and your mouth for the microphone. It is also a very comfortable helmet with or without the intercom system. Dec 31, 2014

A shopper asked: I was just wondering if this helmet fits pretty true to size? I measured and my head is 22.5in. Which would make me a medium. I just want to make sure that I should actually order a medium and not a large just to be safe. Oct 28, 2014

timothy r: I was right at the high end of the xxl. In the warm months my hair is very short. Right now its 27ish in the morning when I leave for work. My hair is longer and I wear a neck wind break that goes under my helmet which makes it right. If you are only going to ride when warm just measure and go for it. If you are planning cold weather extra head gear go a size larger. ... In my opinion anyways Nov 11, 2014
Reply to timothy Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Richard C: I ordered a large after trying one on at a local retailer that had one in stock but not the color I wanted. It fit perfectly! I was so pleased with the chat I had with the RevZilla rep who answered all my other questions I had concerning the helmet that I bought one for my girlfriend as well. Hers fit perfectly also. I am currently having intercom systems installed in them. Nov 11, 2014
