HJC IS-MAX BT Bluetooth Helmet 4.4 5 105 105
OK for the price I have been wearing this helmet for almost a year now and I would have to say it is just OK. I think it is loud. Above 80 MPH it doesn't feel secure on your head. It is heavy even for a modular but not unbearable. The field of vision is decent but I wish it was better. Overall if you have limited funds and want a modular it is decent but after a year I am looking to replace. March 26, 2014
Excellent helmet. Has all the features needed, and fits good. Overall a priceworthy product. February 17, 2014
Great budget modular This is my third HJC helmet, but the first for motorcycles. Helmet fits well, although I wish thinner cheek pads were available. Pinlock shield helps with fogging on cold days, but I wish a breath deflector was included. Ventilation could be a bit better. January 21, 2014
For Riders with a Round-Oval Head First helmet I ever bought and its been working great for the past 2 years. This is a helmet that is made for riders with a round to round-oval shaped head. The face shield will hold the anti-fog insert (purchase separately) and is very comfortable. Noise level is pretty good and keeps my Harley loud enough to hear the engine but not quiet so that I couldn't hear an ambulance. I would say pretty good bang for your buck. December 26, 2013
Lots of features for the price! This is an awesome helmet for the price. I was looking for a modular helmet with a sun visor to replace my current 7 year old modular helmet. I ride into the sun every morning and the sun visor works awesome. The fit is perfect using the guide provided on the website. I have not used it in the summer yet so I cannot tell you about how the ventilation works. I wish that there were more than one bluetooth provider to take advantage of the provided cutout for the bluetooth module. It;s kind of silly to have to adhere a different product to the outside of your helmet. As other reviewers have commented it is a little noisy but you are riding a motorcycle not riding in a car. Overall this is a very good product for the price. December 11, 2013
NOT a Winter Helmet My old full-face helmet was great last winter. After 2 major hits by birds and a rock during the summer, I gave in and bought this helmet. I was loving it until November, when temperatures started dipping below the 50's. The cold air flowing under the chin of the helmet (there are no pads there to allow it to open) is so intense on the freeway that my eyes water incessantly. I commute 25 freeway miles each way; it's hard enough trying to watch traffic and the road, but now I can barely see anything. The only partially successful solution I've worked out is to stuff fabric into the chin space of the helmet to try to prevent some of the air flowing in. I wish I hadn't blown money on this dangerous helmet and had bought another full face that I could rely on both in summer and winter. Hopefully my mistake can serve as a warning for others who do a lot of freeway commuting like I do. December 6, 2013
looks promising, but isn't I ordered one of these a month ago, and found that the top vent rattled when in the closed position, at speed. The sound was akin to a squirrel running around inside the helmet (i.e. very annoying). I returned it, and Revzilla sent it off to HJC for a look. They claimed it was working fine, but agreed to take it back. I ordered another, on the assumption that the noise was an anomaly that HJC just wasn't able to reproduce. Unfortunately, this one makes the exact same noise. So, if you're looking for a quiet helmet, don't bother with this model unless constant scratching sounds (when the top vent is closed) don't bother you. With respect to air flow, this helmet is surprisingly cold on cold days. It's a very drafty helmet -- much more so than others I've worn. The chin guard is sparse, and lets in a lot of air. The helmet feels light (to me, coming from an older, heavier modular), and visibility is good. The controls are relatively easy to operate, as well, even while wearing winter gloves. Because of the noise issue, however, I wouldn't recommend the helmet. December 3, 2013
Excellent value for the price I purchased this helmet for my trip to the Blue Ridge mountains in August. The 1st leg of my trip was from New Hampshire to Harrisburg Pa. Five hundred miles on the highway. I was concerned about how heavy it would be and how tired it would make me. I have been riding for over 48 years and have never worn a full faced helmet. I purchased it more for security on the highway. I was amazed how comfortable it was and never felt tired from the ride. You do need to try one on before you purchase it. If I went by the measurement process they give to size the helmet I would need a LG. I tried on an LG and found it very tight. I tried on a XL and it fit the way it is supposed to. So I bought the helmet through Revzilla and saved a bunch of money. I did find that the noise of my Harley was more noticeable when wearing this helmet but that may be the nature of the beast when wearing a full faced helmet. I had to use earplugs with the helmet when on the highway. Small price to pay for such a great investment. October 28, 2013

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

Patrick F: Hi,
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.
