HJC CL-33 Open Face Helmet 4.5 5 31 31
Helmet for the wife Needed a cheap but good helmet for the wife, she didn't want a half helmet, and she doesn't like being enclosed with a full face. Luckily I found this 3/4 with a face shield, easy to get on and off, and doesn't make her uncomfortable. Fit her perfectly. We had tried with other companies to get a helmet and nothing fit good. Overall, she's happy that she can go riding with me now. September 23, 2014
Great looks,great price Decided to replace my old helmet after 10yrs. Looked at all brands and decided on JHC. For the price it can't be beat, also got the smoke colored face shield look good together. Satified with both items. September 22, 2014
Great basics, a little loud The HJC was replacing an old Nolan that was more expensive and had some more features; for the price the HJC was a good buy. The construction is solid, sturdy straps and good padding, with easily adjustable snap vents. The face shield swap mechanism can be a little tight at first, but once you are familiar with the process for removing and installing the face shields, the system is easy to use. My only complaint is the noise level for this helmet; it gets loud in a hurry once you increase speed. Otherwise, however, a good entry level street helmet. August 18, 2014
Good cheap helmet This was my first helmet, and it served its purpose. I got it for free with the first bike I bought, and it serves as my back-up helmet to this day. It's loud, but light. Not the most stylish helmet out there, and not much for air flow outside the open face. Not bad for what it is. August 11, 2014
Great first helmet Helmet fit good and feels great. Not a full face so you get some wind under the visor. Plenty of visibility to the sides. Delivery was super fast. May 7, 2014
Great Helmet Lightweight, comfortable, great visibility. Very easy to change shields. May 5, 2014
Awesome look for the price I was concerned this helmet would be junk for the price point, but it actually turned out to be quite nice. I got mine in Matte Black and put a dark smoke visor on it, and it's badass. Never got so many compliments on a helmet I've owned before. The visor is really big so it's almost like there's nothing there, I think the wide visibility is great. The logo sticker is easy to remove. Nobody ever writes about that, but I was able to easily remove it with a hairdryer. The helmet looks more minimal that way. April 7, 2014
Seems like a solid clean helmet I bought this becuase I ride a scooter to work and back. Seemed to provide adequate protection for a great price. November 6, 2013

Lonney H: My wife and I saw this HJC helmet at Mitchell's Harley of Modesto, CA. We liked the way it fit us because we are only 5' 3" tall and size small. It also looked good on us. They only had one in stock. We asked if they would order a second one and they said no and the lady was a little rude and really didn't give us the time of day so we left and ordered on line. Thank you Lonney & Lynn. May 3, 2014
Marsha W: I liked the style it will look great with my motorcycle and a great value also. Feb 25, 2014
cm o: This looks to be the smallest 3/4 on the market with a tilt up face shield. None of all the internal visor and vent system BS makes a helmet big as a space helmet, just a basic 3/4 with a good shield. Bought the smoked black shield at the same time. Oct 14, 2013

A shopper asked: What shape head does this helmet fit best? May 13, 2014

Richard S: I have both the HJC-CL33 and a Bell Pit Boss. The HJC (Large) fits the crown of my head perfectly but then narrows and squeezes my temples and that is very uncomfortable. I went to an XL but it is too large. The Bell is a neutral oval and fits me perfectly in XL with no pressure points. So I believe the answer is that the HJC is a narrow oval. If you have a narrow face it should be fine. But if your face is wide like mine I would look for a helmet built for the neutral shape. I hope this helps. May 13, 2014

A shopper asked: Is the visor scratch resistant? Feb 10, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The shield on the HJC CL-33 is scratch resistant, however it is not scratch proof. The shield will stand up to, or resistant, minor irritants, such as dirt, or light impact from some larger, dull debris. However, impact with larger or sharp objects will still have an effect on the shield. Extra care should be taken when cleaning, as using course materials (such as paper towels) will wear through the scratch resistant film, causing the shield to scratch. Cleaning should only ever be done with a soft, clean cloth and warm soapy water. The best results will be had when the shield is cleaned, before debris has accumulated. If there is a thick accumulation of debris it is best to take the process of cleaning slowly, allowing the dirt to soften so it wipes away easily, rather than attempting to scrub off any tough build-up. Taking these steps will ensure a longer life for your shield. Feb 13, 2013

Now, if we take a first pass, this is a basic helmet. You're not buying this because you want a rocket ship of technical merit in a helmet. You're buying the HJC CL-33 if you're looking for a basic, sub hundred dollar, three-quarter, D.O.T. rated helmet that's going to be great for city riding, scooter riding, naked bike riding.

Classic design, now this is the matte black, it's a poly-carb helmet, three-quarter length design, which means you get the coverage over the ears, you could go half helmet from here or either step up from here and protection would be full face. Removable sun visor that you can actually get in some different colors if you wanted to go smoke, comes with a clear shield, basic venting here on a poly-carb shell. And remember from poly carb you step up to something in fiber glass as you go up in the food chain but again this is a more basic sub hundred dollar model. Dual venting here along the top of the brow. You're going to have venting on the side, basic venting, notice the three detents on your sun visor. And as we spin it around you're going to see it just keeps that clean classic shape as we move it.

If we move to the guts, from a fit standpoint, HJC's fit neutral to round. What that means, my head is intermediate oval, longer front to back than it is side to side. This helmet is made to fit most people that have a more round head shape, so keep that in mind. You can always check out our helmet buying guide where we go into the nuances of different head shapes. Looking at the interior, it's a nice microfiber style wicking interior that can be wiped down, but keep in mind, a sub hundred dollar helmet, it's non-removable. From here you would step up to something like the IS-33 which is the step up in ventilation, has an internal sun visor that flips down and has a more aggressive look. But really, here, on the CL-33 side of things for a basic helmet, if you fall into the bucket, which I describe, or you just need a classically styled three-quarter helmet this is a great option from HJC with a rounder head shape.
