HJC IS-Max 2 Style Helmet 4.5 5 95 95
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
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. September 28, 2015
Good basic helmet but fragile controls I bought this a couple months ago to replace my 7 year old Sy-Max II and really like the helmet itself. It's comfortable, the air flow is better than the SyMax and it's lighter. The first click open is at a perfect width for extra airflow without getting debris in my eyes or snapping shut. The Pin-Lock pins took some getting used to as they are within my peripheral vision. My biggest complaint is that the control for the sun visor snapped off after catching in the lip of my pannier, so it's essentially unusable. The construction was incredibly flimsy, with maybe 1mm of plastic holding the control in place. One side simple broke away. The SyMax was a one-piece design that was very durable. I can't understand why they would go to this new one as it seems it would be more expensive to produce, but it is very inferior. September 24, 2015
awsome helmet with hidden perk This helmet is great, fits snug and came with a hidden perk I didn't know it had. built in sunglasses, I love it. I were glasses myself so it worked out great. September 21, 2015
excellent value Built solid, no rattles (great for a modular) and functions and Fits, as it should ! September 21, 2015
Great helmet, Great value Very happy with this purchase. This helmet met all expectations for a mid-range modular with all the bells and whistles. Design is excellent and chin bar locking/unlocking is a breeze. Noise level is a little on the high side, but I notice it decreases when I ride in a more upright, heads-up position rather than somewhat tilted down as in a sport riding posture. Airflow is adequate but could be better. My only major complaint is echoed by many other reviewers: the drop-down sun shield is not dark enough. I ordered the Dark Smoke shield, which was a minor improvement, but still too light. HJC really needs to offer a darker tint option on the sun shield. Other than that, very pleased with the value. Revzilla buying experience is the best, BTW! September 21, 2015
Very satisfied with it! HJC helmets are the right shape for my head. I bought my first helmet last January, a FG-Jet that I really like. But after my first 8 months riding I realized that I wanted a quieter helmet for longer highway rides, better protection for my face but keeping the ability to expose my face to aerate when it gets hot. Come MODULAR. The IS-Max 2 was the winner because it's an HJC, has glasses channels in the padding, it is the same weight as the more expensive Symax, and the elemental red matches my NC700x beautifully. It is still a little on the tight side on my jaw but that is only after one ride. I expect the padding to give and ease the pressure. Lots of good prime features at a middle of the road cost. What's not to like? September 18, 2015
Nice helmet for the low-price range. One of the few "big lids". FYI... if you're wondering which size to buy (3/4/5xl). All components of the 3 sizes are the same. The 3/4/5xl size is achieved by thickness of the liner/cheek pads. My head is ~65.5cm but I went ahead and bought a 5xl... fit's fine. If, after a year it starts to feel too loose I'll just buy replacement 3 or 4xl cheek pads. Solid helmet w/many pros. Cons: flimsy shield, poor-avg venting, chin curtain not incl, chin strap is thin/un-padded and features an out-dated d-ring. September 16, 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

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

Ronald F: Not quite Joseph 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

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

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

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

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 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
