HJC IS-16 Helmet - Solid 4.2 5 64 64
Decent Helmet I like it, it's a big quality step up from what I had before, and has reasonable vision range. Noise level is okay, but is much quieter when the vents are shut, and the visor is locked down. Doesn't have as much air flow as the G-Max that I had, but the build quality is FAR superior. Internal sunshade does its job, I personally wish it was a little closer to my face so that i could lower it, then open the visor for in-town airflow, but I do not wear glasses, and if I did any closer than it is now would likely hit. Weight is good, not ultra light, but even after a several hour ride, I don't notice the weight. Matte finish looks awesome, but it a little harder to clean than gloss. I think that is true with all matte helmets. Overall a winner, if I were in the market for a new helmet, I would strongly lean to this model or another HJC. March 30, 2014
Comfortable but extremely loud I've had this helmet for a few thousand miles now and while it is holding up nicely and has some nice features, there is way too much wind noise. February 5, 2014
Excellent choice, can't go wrong with this helmet. Great looking, perfect fit, excellent price, after showing it to my son, he wants one now too !!! Great features, really looked at a few before buying this one. I made the right choice. December 9, 2013
Decent, for the first 6 months This is a GREAT starter helmet for somebody not sure if they want to make riding their main mode of transportation. If you however know that you will be riding more than driving, I highly discourage buying this helmet. After the first 2-ish months, the styrofoam lining in the cheek area became unglued from the helmet and became very loose. Now 6 months later, the styrofoam has almost completely fallen out. I have riden probably about 5k or 6k miles with this helmet, and it is now all but garbage. October 10, 2013
Love the internal sun visor Shipping was quick and free. I ordered this helmet on a Monday and it arrived on Thursday. I Especially enjoy the internal visor! Great helmet for the money. September 30, 2013
Really good This is an excellent helmet. The internal sun visor is absolutely worth the price bump from the cheaper helmet. My only issue has been one of the top air vent controls broke. I don't know when or how it happened. September 23, 2013
Great for the price! This helmet is very comfortable and it is nice to have the top gun style sun visor in it, it really helps when your at low speeds and need extra cooling just have that down and the visor up. Its defiantly worth it for the money if you really are tight with money but need one this one is awesome. September 9, 2013
Good for price The helmet is good for the price in my eyes. I dropped it and the button on the top that opens/closes the vents broke, so now it's always open. Other downside is that when going upwards of 70mph the helmet starts to whistle a little. September 9, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Terrell M: The visor and price was the selling point for me. Mar 23, 2014
Howard J: I have had the half-face version of this helmet for 5 years and I have been extremely satisfied with it's ergonomics and practicality. Moving up to a reasonably priced full face helmet and the HJC seems to be a reasonable, DOT approved alternative. I love the internal sun visor. Mar 21, 2014
GARRY M: I already have one of these and like it so I am getting one for my wife too Feb 27, 2014
Wendy D: I bought this or my husband because this is the same as mine i love it. Jan 27, 2014
Alix L: HJC makes great helmets without hurting your wallet. I have the FS-15 which is a great and snell certified but it was time for an upgrade. I chose this one because I wanted a solid helmet with the internal sun visor. Woulda been great if it was ece rated though. Jan 4, 2014
José Antonio N: Este casco es muy bueno, ya tuve uno y cabe bien en el asiento de una X-max 400, y cuesta de encontrar, aqui lo tienen en todas las medidas Jan 4, 2014
Craig C: Used HJC in the past, and they tend to be an inexpensive, reliable helmet. (No fancy graphics, weird widgets/vents/etc, just a solid, basic helmet). I bought an internal sun visor helmet of theirs in the past (same slide control), and I loved it, but it was a size too big. I tried a Scorpion EVO, and after a year the side plate broke and the sun visor lever popped off. Decided to skip the expensive helmets and just stick with HJC. Dec 2, 2013

A shopper asked: is the is16 snell 2010 approved ? Jan 17, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Will M: No it is not.

My understanding is you won't find SNELL on any helmet that has a drop down visor because they have less material to accomodate the visor and its mechanisms.

A shopper asked: does this helmet have room for the speakers and mic built in like someother do or can you use a generic bluetooth system? Sep 24, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
AliB: The HJC IS-16 does not come prepared for a Bluetooth system. The HJC IS-MAX BT Helmet is Bluetooth ready, with an exterior module recess and interior speaker cavities. This helmet has an integrated recess cavity for the ChatterBox XBi2-H Bluetooth unit and is a small difference in price as compared to the HJC IS-16. Oct 7, 2011

Rachelle: Yes it does, but you will find the noise a bit loud for the communicator. We have the scala rider Q2 installed in them. Nov 12, 2011

A shopper asked: Purchased Hjc IS-16, this helmet seems heavy. Understand 75 yrs old with arthritis in my neck. Any thing lighter? Still looking for the protection but with less weight. Sep 16, 2013

Charles C: The HJC IS-16 is a very light helmet for the price. One of the lightest I have found or tried on and used. I haven't found a lighter helmet yet. Good Luck. Sep 25, 2013
