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). August 22, 2014
Its not what the Symax 2 was if you love the Symax 2 and have a large head, you will HATE this helmet. XXL is a tighter fit and the view range is less looking back or side to side. Its sleek design and better air flow but I had hoped it would stretch to my large melon. The drop down visor is almost worthless in the Symax 3, it distorts the image and at the bottom allow too much light in. The wind guard option... threw it back in the box.. on my XXL it wont allow me to close the helmet fully. over all this helmet was a miss for the bigger riders with a big head.. July 28, 2014
Wrong Shape for My Head This is a good-quality helmet at a fair price, but the helmet shape is too round for my intermediate oval head. (Arai helmets fit me; Shoei helmets don't.) I will have to make some modifications to this helmet to get it to fit me. I feel pressure both on the forehead and at the back of my head. Other HJC helmets have fit me well, so I was surprised by the fit on this model. June 12, 2014
Great helmet, a bit noisey I wish someone would make a quite helmet, that is my only gripe with this product. July 7, 2014
Great value for the features in this helmet! This is a great value. Modular helmet, easily replaceable shield, slide-down sunscreen, removable and washable pads, communication-ready, Pinlock compatible, good weight, and I love the Hi-Viz color! The only thing missing, for me, is more ventilation. I am in Mississippi, and gets H-O-T in the summer. Great helmet at this price-point! May 21, 2014
Good quality, bright helmet This is my 2nd HJC. I was really looking for Hi-Vis and was forced to go to the higher priced SyMax 3 when I could have gotten the same from a lesser model HJC, but not available. I have a Scala Cardo bluetooth setup, so the stock HJC access is not of use to me and slightly altered how I could mount it. I like the inner sun shield and the 3-positions. However, two knocks on it. First, the tint is too light, I'd prefer it to be darker to potentially eliminate the need for sunglasses, but still a good supplement to them. Second, the slide is very touchy and does not seem "solid" in the clicks. It takes some practice to get it to set in the click regularly. The Pinlock-ready shield is easily removed. MUCH easier than my older HJC. I highly recommend adding the Pinlock anti-fog insert as I have used it on another helmet and it is worth the extra money ( <$30). I wanted Hi-Vis and this certainly is that! May 7, 2014
First helmet, great choice This is my first helmet, in fact I never even tried on any other; once I found this, it was perfect for me. However, I have nothing else to compare this to, especially in-use. That said, the air flow is decent, but not great. I've ridden with it only in 70 to upper 80 degree weather, both with the vents open and closed. While you can tell a difference when the vents are open, it's not significant. Actually, it's hard to tell if they're open or closed in 45mph traffic unless a decent wind is hitting you. I personally keep the visor up a notch or two, and that helps dramatically. The only time I keep it closed is in the rain. The visor has never closed or budged when I keep it in a partially opened notch, even at 70+ mph. When closed, the visor doesn't fog up unless you're a mouth breather, so long as the vents are open. With the chin bar down, my field of vision is uninhibited from the sides, only downward; I have to tilt to see the gauges. Wind noise is definitely significant. I don't mind it, and I have to doubt for the price there's any other helmet that could be considered "quiet," but even with vents and visor closed, it's tough to hear my helmet speakers. Disassembly and cleaning are quick and easy, including the visor. There's plenty of room to run wires for speakers, and even what appear to be pockets for them as well. With the chin bar up, the helmet feels top heavy and awkward; too awkward to try and drive with it like that. However, it's a nice thing to have on a hot day at a long red light, also great for grabbing a quick drink. I'd recommend giving this a shot if you're interested in a modular. I paid a bit more at a local shop, but that way I knew the fit was perfect, and I needed it right then. I'd suggest trying this on locally, and coming back here for the price if time isn't an issue.

First helmet So this is my first helmet ever and I bought it cause I got it for around $200 and I figured that was a pretty good deal. I like the screen visor inside but it wasnt dark enough for me so I bought the dark smoke visor screen from Revzilla and now its very good to ride during sunny days. It is a little heavy and loud with wind noise but I dont have much to compare it to. Neither is a big issue but I got my fiance a regular HJC helmet and I like the lightness of it. If youre a bigger guy with a bigger neck then I fully recommend this helmet. I'm still happy with it and I will be wearing it for a few more years or until some jerk on a cell phone helps me test it out. It is solid and im sure it would hold up easily in a crash. The insides are very soft and easy to remove and clean. June 11, 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
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

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
