HJC IS-Max 2 Style Helmet 4.5 5 84 84
Great helmet for the price Love this helmet. It is my 3rd JVC. Great product. Love the design. Everything works smoothly. First time I've had the built in sunshades. Wonderful. Love them! Venting is good. Stays relatively cool, important here in the Southwest. Love the two pins that hold down the front. A definite improvement over the old style that I have had. Lining is easily removed for cleaning. The only fault I would find is that my head in longer than wide. My forehead is pressed to hard at the front when the sides are adjusted properly. It is breaking in to my head - slowly! But the sizing is accurate. August 10, 2015
Good deal, nice fit, looks great, could be quieter, useless integrated sun shield I had full-face HJC before so I decided to give this brand another shot. It's hard to complain about something at this price point. I really like the fit, modularity, and pretty much everything about this helmet with two exceptions: 1) It's a little louder than I was hoping for (louder than my full face HJC). 2) The built in "One-touch Integrated SunShield" does not go enough "down" so it pretty much covers only top two thirds of my field of vision. After trying it for a few minutes I decided having sun in my eyes is more pleasant. Solved this by ordering a darker face shield. August 9, 2015
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. August 30, 2015
Good product for a great price I bought this helmet based on the Revzilla review and price point. I am extremely happy with purchase. Fit is exceptional and it is a very stylish product. It is my fourth helmet and would replace it with the same one if needed. I like the fact it is easy to order they Revzilla and the fast shipping. August 24, 2015
Comfortable modular helmet at a very reasonable price Very comfortable helmet that's relatively quiet. Not too heavy. Decent airflow. Nice internal sun visor. All controls are easy to manage with gloves on. August 17, 2015
Great helmet for the price! I wanted a module helmet that fell in this price range. This helmet has covered all the basis that I want and I have really enjoyed it. The module feature is super easy to use and makes a huge difference when stopped at a stoplight in the summer. I've even rode with the face up and the shaded glass feature down. The padding fits great and is snug almost all the way to my chin. It was pretty tight at first and after a couple weeks of riding it's loosened up and fits perfect. Very true to size. It's a little louder than an older helmet I had but nothing bad at all. I wear one headphone in to listen to music when I ride and I can hear it just fine. Overall a great helmet for the price range that you're looking. I'd recommend this helmet to anyone that asked. August 17, 2015
Great helmet overall This helmet ran a little small for me. I had to purchase a 2nd one in a Large. I usually wear medium size. Air flow is great for summer days. August 14, 2015
Awesome fit and features Very happy with this helmet. Modular is the way to go and this is the most comfortable, secure fit I've ever had. August 10, 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 ....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

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 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
