Love this product! The internal visor makes all the difference when it comes to comfort. March 2, 2015
HJC Review Excellent value, fit, and features. Revzilla made the sizing swap painless and seamless. January 13, 2015
i love mi firts helmet is very light and so much confortable for the head im live in cancun and the airflow is so good thanks revzilla December 2, 2014
$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.

Great Helmet The best feature of this helmet is the wide range of view. I previously rode with a Scorpion but the HJC offers better peripheral vision. The integrated sun visor is just awesome. I highly recommend this helmet December 29, 2014
Fits and feels good. Fits my head rather well, not too heavy but it also isn't super-light either, not surprising considering it's a modular. Comes pinlock ready which makes it easy to deal with fogging problems. If you live somewhere that helmet fogging is an issue you will have a problem with that in this helmet, get a pinlock anti-fog because it helps a lot. Airflow could be a little better but it's not the worst I've ever tried. December 12, 2014
Very Good Flip UP Got two of these for recent trip and installed the SMH-5 FM units on them they required just a bit of cutting for the speakers but nothing major. In use the were very nice. 1st Flip up helmets for us and we both liked them. The built in Sun Visor is a big plus. Fit seemed about the same as Shoei, noise was a bit more and I thought the venting was a bit less but overall very comfortable and nice to have the different options for long days on the bike. Works pretty well in the rain too. I did miss the "just cracked open" of the Shoei visor. This just has the 1st notch which is a bit more open. Also like the safety color. September 8, 2014
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

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 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

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

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
