Great Helmet for a decent price Bought this helmet to replace an older Nolan. This one fits snug and the noise isn't too bad. I do wish they had a better Chin curtain. This one is too easy to pop out when releasing the face latch... Revzilla has been great in their customer service. I am right on the edge of Medium and Large helmet size. I ordered the large and it didn't fit. Revzilla took it back and sent a Medium to me, No Problems at all. September 15, 2014
Happy with the product overall. Good quality all-around with excellent features I was looking for in particular Happy with the product overall. Good quality all-around with excellent features I was looking for in particular September 9, 2014
I'm very satisfied with everything about this purchase. I'm happy to have found your site and will continue to give Revzilla.com my first consideration when making future purchases. I have recommended your company to a couple of friends and hope they have the same positive experience. Thanks again and ride safe. September 8, 2014
Great Helmet I bought this helmet to replace and upgrade from a 5-6 year old HJC IS-MAX helmet. My head circumference measurement fell right between the recommended measures for a medium and a large, so I opted for the large which is very comfortable. The venting at the top of the helmet works well and noticeably cools my head while riding, and the chin vent helps to keep the shield fog to a minimum. The interior sun-shield retract mechanism works much smoother than the old IS-MAX, and there is room enough for me to wear sunglasses and still use the sun-shield for extra darkening for extremely bright conditions. I highly recommend this helmet. September 2, 2014
Great helmet for the money I was going to buy a more expensive helmet but after trying on many other brands this is the best brand for comfort features and value. I just bought a second one for my wife after using mine for a few months August 25, 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
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

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
adam m: Seems like a good modular helmet for the price. It's a better that the HJC-IS MAX for just a little bit more cash. Oct 4, 2014
Douglas P: My old SyMax 3 Helmet took a couple of good whacks in recent months - time to replace it. I was so happy with how it performed, I decided to replace it in kind. Sep 18, 2014
Todd Z: I originally owned a Symax 2 & liked the modular concept. It became damaged so I upgrade to the Symax 3 Aug 26, 2014
douglas p: owned hjc symax helmet about 12 years old good quaility for the dollar. hope this new one is as good. safe riding to all Aug 24, 2014
Robert Y: I have owned HJC Helmets before and i need a new one. Had a Nolan N-100E which I cannot replace the line and it is OLD!!! I spoke with the guys here at Revzilla and they were most helpful. Their customer service is GREAT!! Aug 19, 2014
Pete D: Best bang for the buck! I have had two HJC helmets before and they have served me well, but alas
they don't last forever. This helmet has all of the whistles and bells that other manufacturers sell for twice
the price. The extra dollars you pay is just for the prestigious name not a better built or safer product.

Larry H: I have a friend that has one, seems to like it very much. Jun 24, 2014
P A: My friend has this helmet and is excellent. Great reviews and great quality for the Price. Also is one of the best looking. May 28, 2014
joseph l: I have purchased two HJC modular helmets in the past, one exactly the same as this. Unfortunately, my last one was damaged when it fell off the shelf in my garage over the winter. I have been very happy with these helmets and didn't think twice about replacing my damaged one with another exactly the same. The face shield is very easy to remove to clean and/or switch for a shaded one. May 4, 2014
David B: Good value for the price. I've had good experience with other HJC helmets. May 4, 2014
David D: My wife thought it was more comfortable that the Bell Vortex. May 3, 2014
Vint B: This white HJC is very similar to my black HD helmet, which is made my the same company. May 2, 2014
Bryan S: Upgrading from a 7 year old HJC modular helmet. I tried the Nolan N104 before this. It was much bigger and wouldn't fit in saddlebags, also did not like that when you opened the chinbar the visor would be forced shut. This was not an issue on the HJC design. May 2, 2014
Philip C: I have owned a SyMax 2 for several years and it has served me well. I like the retractable sun visor because I wear prescription lenses and this means I don't have top stop and switch glasses. The SyMax is a good helmet for the money. The sun visor broke after about 4 years on the SyMax 2 so time to upgrade ! May 2, 2014
varun l: for looks Apr 14, 2014
Russell M: I liked the fit. Apr 2, 2014
Richard P: Currently have the symax2 and like it. This is the next generation and hopefully with better ventilation. Good price for the type helmet Feb 15, 2014
RJ M: I purchased a SyMax 3 a year ago. On August of 2013 I was rear ended doing 60mph and was high sided when I went down. I was unconscious for 48 hours, had two broken ribs, and a shattered Clavicle. I had 6 spots of bleeding on the brain. If I hadn't been wearing my SyMax 3 I would have been killed. My recovery is now complete. The left side of my helmet was pretty much destroyed and the shell was cracked, not my skull. Thank You HJC. Dec 14, 2013
Paul D: Gift Sep 28, 2013
Bill L: Feed back on HJC helmets is good as specific feedback I have read for the SyMax 3. The price is fair and I am happy with the fit and features so far. Aug 16, 2013
W I: I already own one, and like it so much I wanted to get one for my wife. Aug 13, 2013
A shopper asked: I see several reviewers report that they have attached Sena SMH-10 units to their HJC Symax III helmets. Can the SMH-10 mount be attached using the bolt on clamp kit or does it require the use of the adhesive mounting option?
I can't tell whether the pocket for the Chatterbox will interfere with the Sena clamp. Thanks for any input.

A shopper asked: No mention of noise levels, How does it compair to the Schubirth C3?? Nov 3, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
multimotors: I have both a Schuberth C3 and a Symax II (not a 3), and while there is much ado about the quietness of the C3, I find that once the vents are open, it is all academic. While the C3 is slightly quieter than the Symax, neither is quiet enough (in my opinion) for extended rides without hearing protection. I found the Symax to be a very good helmet. Why did I replace it, you ask? Because it impacted the side of a utility truck in a glancing blow at 40mph then the pavement with my grape still inside. Dislocated hip, smashed clavicle, crushed bones in my foot and ankle. Zero head injury, no loss of consciousness, no failure of the locking mechanism of the chin-bar. Great helmet, and I will own one again. Nov 5, 2011

bugser: Noisy. I've never had a schubirth though, so can't compare. I suspect the noise comes from all the slots and channels. May 10, 2013

Gabriel C asked: Is it possible to purchase it with the dark smoke inner sun visor? Or would I need to order the dark smoke and switch it out with the smoke one already in it?

Also, is the inner sun shield polarized?

I'm buying this helmet either way. I was just wondering. Also going to get the SMH10 for it. I LOVE REVZILLA.

Oh and p.s. Revzilla, you should make an app for easier shopping while on a mobile device.

A shopper asked: The helmet clearly has a slot for the Chatterbox Bluetooth system BUT the page says, NOTE "HJC Sy-Max 3 is not compatible with the Chatterbox Communication System." sooooooo yea or nay on the Bluetooth Aug 1, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The HJC SyMax 3 Helmet was initially designed to be compatible with the Chatterbox system, but it is not compatible due to a slot that is too thick to accept the Chatterbox. However, the Sena SMH-10 and the Cardo Scala Rider G9 (or any universal communication system) will be compatible, but not integrated in the slot featured on that helmet. Aug 7, 2012

RevZilla: This would not be possible as HJC does not produce a clear inner sunvisor. The Symax 3 does, however, accept the HJ-17 tinted faceshields. Jun 13, 2012
