HJC IS-MAX BT Multi Helmet
Excellent value for what you get!!!
This helmet is an excellent choice for the moderate budget. The features are very comprehensive and it provides and extremely comfortable fit. The sun visor is a great add on as is the communication feature. I do not use Bluetooth but I do use a cobra radio and this provides the necessary recesses for all the bits.
The only real negative is the airflow. I have yet to find a helmet that provides enough airflow so prevent the visor from fogging up. Although, even if the expensive helmets were better, I am not sure the extra cost is worth it. I just ride with the screen tilted back to the first stop and this keeps it clear.
So overall, a highly recommended helmet.

Overall good helmet for the price.
Overall good helmet for the price.
I tried one on in a local shop before ordering from Revzilla. It seemed to be a bit more snug once the helmet came in. I attribute this to perhaps the one I had tried on had been broken in more from other customers trying it out? I believe once broke in fully it will fit well.
It has good ventilation but the top air wholes would be better if placed further down . The helmet is noisier at running speed than my last but has better ventilation. This is the first flip up helmet I’ve owned and I’ve read a few things online that state they tend to be a little more noisy.
The internal sun shield has to be placed all the way down to cover my eyes correctly. This can be a little challenging as you have to hold the release button and press forward on the slide at the same time to get it in the third stage. I've also noticed the sun shield somewhat distorts my vision when looking down.
This is the third HJC helmet I have owned. It has good features and I’m satisfied with the purchase. Revzilla had the best price I could find and provided an accurate review which was helpful in making my decision.

This helmet has a lot of features for the low price point I got it at. Sun visor works great. Airflow is sufficient but it is really hard to tell if the ports are open or closed, a scoop on top would have been a lot better. Noise isn't any different than anything else at the price level. It has nice big ear openings on the inside which are so nice! I put little ear buds behind the mesh in those openings, sounds great and there is still tons of room, so comfortable def a plus.

I am overall very happy with the product. The built in shade is allows me to not have to try and fit my sunglasses between my head and the helmet. The flip up piece is a little stiff since it is new, but I am sure it will loosen up over time. Airflow is excellent, but it can be a little noisy at higher speeds.

Excellent value, nice style, a little bit of noise.
Took my time and read a lot of reviews for helmets. I decided to go with the IS-MAX BT Raptor, I did not want something really outrageous on style and colors and this matched my bike perfectly. I was a little nervous about sizing, since I did not try one on first but it fits perfectly. It is a little noisy but I wear ear plugs anyway. Overall very happy with selection and you can't beat the price.

Like this helmet
I had a HJC with the sun visor wanted to replace it. Think this is a excellent replacement with extra features......

Poor graphic choice. Noisy airflow. Very comfortable. The sunsheild is a great feature. Fit is smaller than average - I needed an XL

Airflow is above average, sunvisor is a great feature!
