What's this?

HJC Sy-Max III HiViz Helmet

The HJC Symax 3 Helmet uses a composite fiberglass main shell to keep weight to a minimum but uses a polycarbonate chin bar to keep the cost at a minimum. Amenities include a drop down internal sun visor, a pinlock-ready face shield and a removable moisture-wicking anti-bacterial liner.

Note: The SyMax 3 has a fairly round internal shape. It is ideal for people who need more ear and temple room but conversely it is less suitable for people who need more room in the forehead area.

Features:

  • Advanced fiberglass shell with polycarbonate chin bar
  • ACS Advanced Channeling Ventilation System front to back airflow flushes heat and humidity up and out
  • Optically superior Pinlock-prepared face shield with anti-scratch coating (Pinlock anti-fog insert sold separately)
  • QuickSlide tool-less shield replacement system
  • One-touch integrated smoke-tinted SunShield deploys quickly and easily
  • Single-button chin bar/face shield release
  • SilverCool moisture-wicking and odor-free interior with advanced silver anti-bacterial fabric, pads are removable and washable
  • DOT approved

$100 better than the IS-MAX BT?
This is my 3rd HJC modular. I fit right between sizes and opted for the smaller size. It took a good 20 hours for it to start breaking in but it's feeling more comfortable now. Because I always wear a skull cap or balaclava I probably should have gone to the larger size. The liner is more premium than the IS-Max I've been wearing for the last 4 or 5 years. The visor also seals better. The view port is excellent. At lower speeds it's reasonably quiet but unless you have good wind protection at highway speeds the noise is horrendous. On the Tenere over 60mph noise isn't too bad, on the KLR with a taller aftermarket windshield the roar above 60mph is terrible. With thousands of hours in the IS-MAX with no real complaint but weight I can't really say the SYMAX is hands down $100 better. It is a slightly better helmet for way less than a "premium" helmet.

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).

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.

Good helmet packed with features
When it was time to finally replace my five-year-old hi-viz full-face helmet, I wanted more features. And this HJC flip-up did the trick. It came in a hi-viz color, but added two new features that I've always wanted: A flip-up front, and a retractable sun visor.

The flip-up latch mechanism feels very solid and snaps into each position with authority. By that, I mean that there's no question that you've either fully raised or lowered it because you hear a solid snap when it's engaged. And the one-hand latch is great and easy to use.

The sun visor mechanism is great. I can easliy find the slider on the top of the helmet that lowers the visor, and popping it back up is a simple tap on the button on the top of the helmet. Both motions are easy to make while riding. My only gripe is that the sun visor is not very strong (dark), but only a mild smoke tint.

Dissappointed
This helmet is a lot tighter on my forehead than my Symax 2. After less than a year, the hi-viz color is already fading and the logo on the front is flaking off. Also, the liner keeps pulling loose in the front (probably due to the tight fit and my sweaty head due to poor ventilation).

HJC SyMax 3 Hi-Viz helmet has great features
Hi-Viz color looks terrific. Modular helmet and flip down sunvisor exactly what I needed. Mike Clarke of RevZilla customer service was extremely helpful with sizing not only for the helmet but also for my boots and glove purchases....sizing was spot on...excellent customer service!!!

best of the symax series
This is my 3rd generation of Symax helmets & it is the best.
Fit (size small) was perfect from the first try on - no break in needed as in the past.
Peripheral vision is greater than any of helmets I wear.
The color definitely is of high visibility - expect some kidding.
The only fault is the "new improved" detent system for the sun visor, it is clunky & does not work well when riding. The old style was far superior to the new set ip.

True to It's word
I have several HJC helmets, but this is my first Symax. After viewing the vid from Revzilla I was sold. Also did some checking and the Revzilla price was better than others. I received the helmet in just two days after ordering. Size was right on and the features were on the money. Already been wearing it on long rides and it was very comfortable. Noise level as not the most quite, but better than some other modular helmets I have had. I ordered the Hi-Viz because I want to be seen, and that color does the job. Overall the purchasing experience was great as usual and the helmet is as advertised.

Best bang for the buck! Great protection, functionality, and fairly quiet for a modular helmet.
Ellviss on Jan 13, 2016
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.

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.

looking for a QUIET MODULAR for sport touring reviews on HJC SyMax 3 are on the loud side is the Nolan 104 better ??
Al B on Nov 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?

tks
A shopper on Aug 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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?
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???
A shopper on Mar 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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??
A shopper on Aug 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Is the latching system on this one metal or plastic ?
Rohit S on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is metal.
