This is a great helmet. I'm really happy with this helmet. Originally I purchased one after measuring my skull but opted for the next larger size. The return was a breeze and return shipping with cheap. Great options on the helmet. Definitely watch the revzilla video on these helmets first. August 26, 2015
Exactly what we were looking for. Wife and I decided we both needed a helmet upgrade. She had a full face with 'girly' designs. I had a black modular that was...um...budget. We choose the HJC because it was modular, had a sun screen (wife said instantly yes because of this feature alone) AND it is bright yellow. We both noticed other riders with HiViz helmets were more easily seen. Had our first ride today (80+ miles to go to brunch). We both ordered based on the size chart. We both find the size chart to be right on! I had a short solo ride to the closest gas station with an air pump while wife was getting ready. I intentionally did not wear ear plugs for this short ride. I found this helmet to be quieter that what I was using before. Riding with ear plugs later in the morning I found the helmet to be less noisy at speed (60-70 mph) that what I had before; but, there was a different character to the noise. There was more low frequency noise than I was used to hearing. But, this impression may only exist because the overall noise level was lower than I was accustomed to. I found that even new out of the box the comfort level was really good. There is good room immediately around the ears. (space for intercom). One thing I noticed was that turning my head from side to side there was less variability on air flow forces on my neck muscles. This is a good thing. I ride a 'standard' bike, with an upright riding position. The restaurant where we stopped had large windows. We could see our reflection when we pulled up. The HiViz really stood out. Helmets are such a personal thing, it is hard to write or make sense of written reviews. Head shape and personal preference are the rule of the day. Frankly, I was really surprised that just using the size chart for two different riders, (extra small and large) and buying sight unseen, worked out so very well. We both would do this again. NOTE on sizing: Wife was just in upper bound of the "extra small" range on the chart. I was just in the lower bound "large" range on the chart. We ordered just what the chart said. It worked for us (and worked well). August 15, 2015
Fitment guide is right on Just got back into riding after a 30 year hiatus and just bought my first Harley. One day on the bike convinced me I wouldn't ride without a helmet again. I was a little leery about buying a helmet over the internet but with the return policy, I took the chance. The fitment chart was right on. I thought a lot about the color and the reactions I would get, but the modular feature and high visibility of the yellow won out. I get very positive comments from every type of rider when I stop. Not having to remove the helmet every time I do is a huge plus. Everyone comments they see me coming from way off. The DD rings are still the pain I remembered them to be, but with an aftermarket quick release, I couldn't be happier. All the gear all the time. I'm way too old to heal and I seem to have gotten softer in the head over the years. June 30, 2015
Good product for the money. I love this helmets style but the wind is loud without earplugs although that's usually when I'm running 90 down the freeway so... airflow isn't as good as I had hoped but I can feel some relief when the weather is hot. My biggest drawback is that my wife's helmet front face is broken and will not stay in the open position now. Will taking it apart soon to see what happened. Mine still works great and for the money, I really like it. Would very much like to upgrade to the next level next season and hopefully have less noise and more airflow for the 700 dollar price tag. June 3, 2015
Very good helmet for the price I already had a symax II and like it. The symax 3 looks better, has better airflow and less noise. My sena bluetooth installed very easily in just a few minutes. Other than being a little tight, I ordered smaller cheek pads to help, I really like this helmet and have had several good comments about the look. I got a small but probably should've gotten a medium. May 26, 2015
Great Helmet I started riding with a CL-Max many years ago. Went up to the SY-Max II when I got my current bike. It was time for a new lid and I knew I already liked the HJC. Got the SY-Max III and am not disappointed. I love that it is pinlock ready. Picked up the Pinlock shield and am riding fog free. May 4, 2015
Great product. This is a great helmet. The only down side the I have found is it is a little heavy and there really is not much airflow. I kept having problems with my face shield fogging up in the early mornings. I added the Penlock system and that has cured fogging problem. March 30, 2015
Love this product! The internal visor makes all the difference when it comes to comfort. March 2, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Kenneth L: Because I can't afford Schuberth and the HJC Sy-Max 3 gets good ratings. The flip up front, built in sun visor and quick release face shield are all excellent features. UPDATE: After having worn this helmet for 1000 miles, I love it. The sun visor has replaced sunglasses. Much more comfortable. May 30, 2015
Bruce A: More rounded shape, great visibility. I love modular helmets. Apr 18, 2015
John L: Helmet for my wife. Replacing an HJC she crashed in the Fall. Feb 15, 2015
Erin B: Fit's on my giant head. Dec 1, 2014
John O: product reviews, tried on at local shop but they did not have hi-viz in my size. Sep 2, 2014
Larry L: Luv my SyMax 2. Time for an upgrade Jul 22, 2014
Benjamin H: Price and features for this model helmet. I already own an HJC helmet and I have been satisfied with the product. I wanted a flip-face/ modular helmet, lots of features, and a bright color without having to pay a premium price. Apr 29, 2014
Alec M: I wanted a modular Hi-Viz helmet, and HJC helmets fit me well. The price was right, also. Apr 12, 2014
Luis V: Great helmet, good air flow. Apr 5, 2014
Gregg H: Visibility and weight Mar 26, 2014
Rich H: My favorite helmet. Outstanding durability and function. Visor is durable and stays in positive detents. Pinlock system provides REAL fog protection with somewhat expensive but effective inserts that lock in (extra). Great Dayglo Yellow color could save your life. Relatively quiet, good ventilation. Price is fair for quality delivered. Feb 19, 2014
Matthew H: Bright colors and excellent pricing. Oct 2, 2013
Jeffrey S: I love the integrated sun visor and the option to open the face to talk/drink a beverage. The hi-Viz color has really made a difference. No cagers have pulled out in front of me since!! Oct 2, 2013
Al B asked: looking for a QUIET MODULAR for sport touring reviews on HJC SyMax 3 are on the loud side is the Nolan 104 better ?? Nov 27, 2014

David P: It's not terribly quiet that's true, but it's good enough for me. Don't know anything about the Nolan. But frankly, I don't want total noise cancellation. Once I get used to a helmet, I use it's wind noise, among other things, to judge my speed. Plus I don't listen to music or anything else while I'm riding. I just don't trust myself not to get distracted. Nov 27, 2014

David K: I can't compare it to the Nolan. I have been using HJC because they are comfortable and fit my head so well. The SyMax 3 is not as quiet as my full face non modular HJC but for me is worth the the trade off. I love have the features of the modular. One reason that this helmet is noisy (aside from it being a modular) is the open cavity in the liner for a communication system. I do not use a com system so I filled the pockets with a foam product called Helmet-Quiet that I got from Helmet-muffler. That web site is not loading now but you should be able to find a similar foam from a fabric or craft store. The foam that came in the Helmet-Quiet kit was 1/2" thick x 7" x 7" and was enough for 2 helmets. Good luck! Nov 28, 2014

Bob D: Love this helmet, great price,comfortable but the only draw back is it's loud. I can tell you from experience that the locking mechanism can survive a 45 mph crash with face plant without opening...obviously this is my second symax! Hope this helps. Nov 27, 2014

A shopper asked: i understand there are technical issues with the chatterbox comm system and the symax 3, and you do not recommend its use. Is there any comm system you recommend that fits better on it?

Kenneth D: Don't know of any problems with that system. Helmet is set up with a knock out piece on left side. Wasn't sure about compatibility of that system with others so my buddy and I got a pair of pre paired Cardio that fix easily on helmet. Ear pieces fit in cut outs and head piece clamped on side. If you are getting it for phone and music I think it would be fine. If you are trying to talk to others I'm not sure? Aug 4, 2014

A shopper asked: I wear a size xl in an AFX helmet. I'm looking at purchasing the Symax lll. Comparing both size charts...the HJC recommends a 2xl. Do the HJC helmets run smaller??? Mar 4, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jack E. W: It's been my experience with HJC helmets--and I've owned several along with the SyMax 3--that they run pretty true to size. I measure a small, I bought size small, and it fits perfectly. Also, if you need more assurance, HCJ has an excellent customer service department. Mar 6, 2014

stephen p: I find the helmet to be too small.I have actually never worn it as it hugs my face too tightly and is too uncomfortable.I should have returned it but too much time has passed.I can dive you a great deal on mine !Steve. my e address is lhaika at net zero dot com Mar 4, 2014

Timothy W: In my opinion, yes they do run small. I bought a Large and it's a snug fit for me. Most times a Large fits me, in helmets and in most other gear. An XL would have fit better for me in this helmet. Mar 4, 2014

A shopper asked: I ride an R-6 and I am interested in this helmet. In the video review Anthony said this particular helmet isn't good in the tuck...thoughts? Also had a question in regards to the bluetooth compatibility, Anthony said it was compatible but the note in the write up says its not?? Aug 28, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Luis V: I have had this helmet for almost a year, worn in cold and warm weather. I ride upright and the functions of the helmet are noticeable. Air flow is good and the helmet is comfortable. As far as riding in the tuck, I think the placement of the air vets would not provide the best air flow. I have com on the helmet but not Bluetooth, the helmet allows for easy speaker placement.

EUGENE S: I really like this helmet for my big fat head. I ride a Klr 650. Hi vis was big for me. I have 2xl. It fits me great. Answer: I believe Anthony is very correct. Poor for tuck. I notice this effect just riding normal occassionally. And it does have blue tooth cap. Ride safe. Eug Aug 28, 2014
