HJC IS-Max 2 Style Helmet 4.5 5 108 108
Great helmet although a bit snug I really like this helmet. I am replacing a CL-Max 2 that I destroyed in a crash while riding in the Rockies in September...totaled the bike! The helmet saved my life! I am very happy with this new helmet. The only difference between this one and my previous one is the included sun visor. I do find the IS-Max 2 to be a little tighter fit than the CL-Max 2, but I've only been wearing it for about 5 hours so far and the riding season is over here in New Hampshire. All-in-all, a great helmet! October 26, 2015
Great bucket, great value Very comfortable with great ventilation. I wear a 2XL in the Bell Mag 9 but need a 3XL in this one to allow the internal sunshade to clear my glasses and a more comfortable fit for my very round Charlie Brown-like head. November 20, 2015
Functional, convenient, stylish Seems larger than most helmets, but this IS my first modular. The IS model is very convenient, but could be a darker shade of tint. All in all, I'm happy with it. September 28, 2015
I love the helmet I had initially selected a different helmet and called the Revzilla line to ask and was told that this would be a better fit for me. The helmet fit beautifully right out of the box and has been perfect for me, including a 400 mile trip through rain, wind, cold and heat. I recommend calling to confirm that the helmet you choose is right for you. Oh, and it is beautiful! November 9, 2015
Excellent Helmet For a modular helmet, HJC hit this one out of the park! Much better airflow than the previous model and the internal visor works super smooth. My only wish is that they would have included a pin stop lens. Other than that, this lid rocks. October 26, 2015
Great Helmet! This was my first helmet purchase. I read a lot of reviews and did my research, This helmet fits me pretty well. I had to get one size bigger than the suggested size for my head. I like it! October 26, 2015
Versatility of Modulation This is my first modular helmet and I'm loving it. Almost bought an "official" dual sport helmet but why. I've been riding offroad for years with a standard full face helmet so no need to go "official" with a $700 helmet with barely any features. Back to this HJC IS-Max2: it's great having the chin bar up when taking a drink, digging in your pockets, using the facilities, talking to a fellow rider at a stop light, and coughing or sneezing without spraying inside. I'm sold on modular for now on and it's what I'll always wear. As for other thoughts, it gets great air flow WITH the chin bar down. If I'm getting hot all I need to do is stand on my pegs and whoosh the air comes in. Winter is about to hit and I ride everyday all year. I'm a little concerned about it being too cold (especially when I'm on my pegs a lot offroad) but I've got a good balaclava. Vents seem to pull moisture well. I've got an oval head and this is a little too round for me but not a deal breaker. I love the TWO POSITIONING of the internal shield. It's only about a quarter inch further down but that's what you'll need when you've got sun glare coming off your instrument gauges. Fogging is never an issue for me because I use the Pinlock system... it's the only way! Bottom line is this is a good helmet for any kind of riding for a very fair price. October 23, 2015
What you're paying for When you're buying a helmet you're buying something to put between your head and the ground. I went down in this helmet going around 50 mph. The right side of my head made contact with the pavement during my slide and i barely felt it. The compression liner did its job and there are some scratches to the face shield and the immediate area around the face shield. The only real gripe I have is there is nothing to deflect wind from the chin area. October 20, 2015

P A: I'm a HJC fan because they make helmets to fit my big head. I like the design of the helmet too Apr 24, 2015
Brian H: I currently own an HJC and love it. But it is 8 years old I wanted a new helmet with the sun visor and other improved features. I hope I love this one just as much. I was ready to buy the matte black one until I saw this one, it just looks way cool. I also found the reviews on Revzilla very helpful and informative. Apr 21, 2015
James J: Best style helmet per the reviews at a competitive price. Feb 9, 2015
Raymond B: Style, Options....multi-position sun visor, modular design, hopefully comfort and revzilla's no restocking fee if it's not! Jan 23, 2015
Scott H: I really liked the looks of this helmet. The IS-MAX 2 got good reviews and I liked the video review revzilla did. It has great features for the price range I was looking at. Dec 27, 2014
Joseph N asked: So this helmet has conventional helmet chin strap D Rings and well as a snap together male/female clip on the helmet strap. Is the intention of this is for both chin strap fasteners to be used together? If not then how to get rid of the female part of the snap clip? Have never seen a helmet strap like this yet. Nice looking helmet though. May 13, 2015

Ronald F: Not quite Joseph ....as you place the strap thru the double "D"rings and then weave it back thru one of the "D" rings...the excess strap is then folded back on it's self and secured with the snap ...the snap is NOT intended to secure the helmet to you head...the snap keeps the length of strap from flapping in the wind....hope this helps May 13, 2015

Brian H: I have owned this helmet for a few weeks now and love it. The strap is just like any other strap. The addition of the snap is to prevent the end of the strap from slapping you in the face while driving at higher speeds. It actually works too, I really like the feature. I don't always use it, like when driving at lower speeds 20 - 35 mph it is really not necessary. Hope this helps May 13, 2015

James J: The conventional d-ring fastener secures the helmet around your chin. The additional male and female "snaps" on the chin strap is for securing the extra strap not used in the d-ring which when snapped, eliminates any flapping the chin strap might do when exposed to the wind while riding. Hope this helps. May 13, 2015
Reply to James Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Joseph N: Thanks for the replies but the male/female fastener i am referring to is not the snap at the end of the helmet strap but a separate snap together fastener in addition to the d rings. I would post a link to a photo but this Forum will not allow links to be posted. May 14, 2015

Timothy A: The snap is only used to hold the extra length in place after you fasten the helmet. This stops the strap from flapping around and slapping your neck. You should always us both D-rings to faster the helmet. May 13, 2015

Scott H: The helmet strap in a normal d ring strap. The snaps are to keep the end of the strap from flapping in the wind. Hope this answers your question. May 13, 2015

James P: My Max-2 only has the chin D-rings, NO M/F clip. And yes, it's a really nice helmet. May 13, 2015

Scott H: I have a scala rider q2 pro installed on mine. It is a older system, but was easy to install and works great. The helmet has cutouts for the speaker and I don't use a chin curtain so the boom mic tucks into the chin bar with no problem. Jul 29, 2015

A shopper asked: I am looking for a heated visor for is-max2 style helmet. Is there one aviable. Kind of confused, on revzilla, under details, it says hj-17 but while searching for this product, it doesn t say it fits this helmet? Jan 27, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ronald F: if you search Revzilla for a "heated visor" a result showing a HJC IS-Max 2 SNOW helmet will display...looks to be the same helmet with a heated visor...to make sure I would: contact HJC direct - Google HJC helmets for the link...

they're out here on the west coast ( PST), unfortunately Revzilla won't allow "links" to other web sites to be displayed in this message - the contact info on the HJC site will give you both Emails and Phone numbers...hope this helps
