First new helmet in a while
I chose this helmet for two reasons and they are both because I wear glasses:
1) It's modular so I can flip up the front to put on/adjust my glasses.
2) The slip down sun visor because I can't wear sunglasses and corrected glasses.
I picked the "Style" specifically for it's paint job. I just really like it. It looks exactly like the picture. True to color and everything. I was really happy about that. I get a nice stylized helmet that is still as neutral as a solid color.
The fit is pretty snug. I have a narrow dome and bought a small. It fits great. The head wiggle test has little to no wiggle but it's not squeezing my head either. My helmet hair says that it's not putting a lot of pressure on the sides of my head. Not sure how else to describe it. It's snug but not tight.
I have a good field of view in this helmet. I have really good peripheral vision and I don't see the helmet in my peripheral. I do see the top and bottom though but that doesn't bother me much. Speaking of the vision, the sun visor is a really cool feature but I don't know if a standard style bike rider would find it useful. I ride a crotch rocket so it's great for me but when I sit up straight the bottom of the visor cuts my vision. I have to be leaning forward and looking sort of up to have my full vision through the drop down visor. It helps and I'm glad I have ti but it's not as big of a selling point as I though. When I wear my glasses and use the drop-down visor I have to choose to either cut my vision with my glasses or the sun visor. It might help to roll the helmet forward more to avoid this but I'm not sure how that affects the safety of the helmet.
The modular part of the helmet is great. It is smooth and easy to open one handed. The locking mechanism feels secure when you click it in place. What I mean is you will know that you locked it down by hearing and feeling the click of each side. I like this because it leaves no question to whether it's locked down or not. I use the modular part every time I put on my helmet to easily put my glasses on and suit up while the bike is warming up. I flip it down just before riding off.
As a last note, the foam around the temples has a gap where my glasses slide into place. I'm not sure if this was intentional or not but it works great until I want to lean forward. It holds the glasses in this groove so I have to physically push them up before hitting the throttle. Can be bothersome on long rides if I'm going to be up and down a lot.
I think the IS-Max 2 Style was a great choice and it works exactly like I wanted it to. For a helmet in this price range I feel I got every pennys worth out of it.

Good looks, light weight, great value!!
This helmet has a lot of great features. I wear glasses and i can put on and remove this helmet without taking them off. It has channels for the ear stems so no pressure on your face. the fit was a little tight( I ordered a large) and the cheek pads were so tight it hurt my face to close the chin bar. Swapped out for xxl cheek pads and now the fit is great. My communication system installed with no problems. The drop down sun visor is awesome. The chin bar is easy to use and the helmet is pretty quite for a modular helmet. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking a modular helmet.

Great Value, updated features,fast shipping, great price
Perfect for touring/commuting...no need to remove your helmet to communicate with passenger or the cashier at the gas stop.
Metal pins/latches connect the lock on the front bar....face shield is easy to remove and replace ( 1 lever on each side). will accept sun glasses ( ear stems) if needed( it has an interior drop down tinted shield- but out here in the SW...some dark shades help on those long bright days)... HJC continues to evolve their line of modular helmets with great results...the new "flat finish" on this model makes it up to date along with better interior and cooling when compared to earlier models...would purchase again.
