What we were looking for! This helmet has the style, features and fit we wanted and it was in a very affordable price range. July 21, 2014
Has everything I wanted in a modular helmet. Good solid helmet with great features and a reasonable price. July 14, 2014
couldn't ask for more in a helmet. Style, fit, and safety! This product is the complete package. I would recommend this helmet to anyone. This is a riders helmet. June 23, 2014
better then expected This modular helmet was better than expected. Was not heavy, being able to use the shade visor riding into the sun was definitely worth it. Wore the helmet for about 6 hours on a Saturday and 5 hours on Sunday and no headaches or uncomfortable feelings. glad I bought it. My next step is to look for a progressive visor and peel aways July 25, 2014
Modular on a budget Pros: Good price for a modular helmet Looks good Integrated flip down sunglasses Cons: Noisy Chin bar latch is often difficult to open Ventilation is minimal This is an OK helmet. In retrospect, I would have rather dropped a little more money and gotten something a bit nicer. June 9, 2014
Great if you can get the right fit. I walked in with a very specific issue: I wear glasses and so I needed a helmet with a sun visor as well as room enough for the glasses themselves. I ended up needing to go a size larger than I would have liked but because the helmet is so round I found the ear pieces of my glasses butting up against the back of the helmet thereby preventing them from fitting on my face. However, going up a size I gained the room but I also gained a little wiggle. That said, this helmet, even with the wiggle, still fits very tightly. It's heavier which may be a problem for longer rides but it also means that the helmet feels very secure. The construction also feels very solid, to the point where it's actually a little difficult to move the modular part of the helmet. The venting is good, but not great. But the problem I have is slight fogging. It's never bad enough to obstruct my view, but it does prove somewhat annoying. The helmet is also fairly loud, even at lower speeds (35-40 mph). The sun shield is nice, easy to put in place and retract; though because the retraction is spring loaded, the sound reverberates through the helmet (not bad, just weird). The only thing I would change about this helmet would be the chin strap. It's secure, but very long and can be very hard to strap up and take apart. Plus, the snapping pieces seem rather like they don't quite fit together properly and can be frustrating trying to get them to snap together. Either way, I do enjoy this helmet but I would not choose it again for the sole reason that sacrificing wiggle for eye glasses space should not have to be an option. Though, if I didn't have glasses and were able to get the right size, I would have no complaints. May 18, 2014
There are better modular helmets, but not at this price Got this for my girlfriend who wouldn't stand for anything but a modular. Got this one for its readiness to accept a bluetooth com. system. Great protection, flows air fairly well when you need it and stays pretty warm and undrafty when you don't. Since she has learned to make herself understood by raising the visor, banging on my back and shouting in my ear....I've decided to forego to comm system. May 12, 2014
This is a fantastic helmet This is my 3rd helmet I've purchased and I always keep with HJC. Really fantastic all around. May 5, 2014

papadann: Yes. I have only worn it a few times, but had no trouble putting it on over my glasses (with the chin bar up of course). The sun visor did not hit my nose or glasses. Also, the helmet is very roomy around my ears so it doesn't pinch my ears/glasses. Aug 21, 2011

Dwayne O: the price you see is for one helmet not two. The chatterbox will work on other helmets just need to proper attachment. I have been very happy with this helmet.

Oatmeal J: Thanks for the Speedy replies! Very helpful as I have little experience with motorcycle gear and it's a birthday present.

willywamdad: The Bluetooth device for the HJC helmets is known as the ChatterBox Xbi2-H Plus Bluetooth Intercom. You can pick them up right on the Revzilla website at http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/chatterbox-xbi2-h-plus-bluetooth-intercom or if you search Google - although Revzilla's price is solid & competitive. I've not tried it out yet myself, but am looking into ordering it. A friend of mine has one and loves it. Apr 1, 2013

Jeffrey I: I bought this helmet and SMH-10 over a year ago to make a 1 month trip with another biker.

Easy to install and worked like a charm. Level Hwy I could transmit over 1.5 miles difference. In the mountains of Colorado I was lucky to get 1/4 of a mile.
Damn the curves and hills. Receiving phone calls and Bluetooth into my cellular music was great.

I also use the Bluetooth for GPS reception from my cell phone. We rode about 8 to 10 hours a day and did not have any issues with battery life of the SMH-10. Just charged it up at night.

A shopper asked: I want to attach my GoPro camera to the chin bar. Is the front of the chin bar smooth enough to accept an adheseive mount? My Sy-Max II is sculpted and will not. Feb 23, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Patrick F: As an owner of a 2012 model of the HJC IS-MAX BT I can honestly say unless the 2013 or 14 model has changed you might have problems attaching a GoPro camera to the chin bar as it has a flat black non smooth surface which incorporates the front air vent to your face, and the unevenness of the side parts of the chin bar might also cause you issues. The area from the HJC
logo over the top of the helmet is made of the same flat black non smooth surfaces as well so again you might have issues mounting a GoPro camera there. However a person with some ingenuity might figure out a way of mounting a GoPro camera to a HJC IS-MAX BT. Hope this helps.

Brett W: Hello.
This one isn't smooth enough for that.
It's sculpted as well. And it has a vent there.

Hope that helps.

Richard T: I'd say never use pads as a replacement for the real deal. My HJC max saved my life due to a bad accident, pretty much face first at 60 into the pavement. Your life's worth a lot more than the money it cost to buy a new one. Oct 9, 2013

I' m not sure I can answer this question as we did not have any size issues with our helmets. My suggestion would be to contact HJC directly and ask them.
