HJC CL-17 Helmet

The HJC CL-17 Helmet hits the same safety ratings as the big boys yet comes in at hundreds less. This is a helmet designed to keep you cool. Advanced ventilation channels do most of the work but a moisture wicking interior liner is there for backup. Out of the box this helmet comes with a Pinlock-ready face shield. Adding on a Pinlock lens gives you the most fog-free riding experience out there. Shield changes are a breeze thanks to the tool-less RapidFire Shield Replacement System. Replacement shields are available in virtually every color of the transparent or metallic rainbow so you can fight the sun, match your bike or match your mindset.

  • Advanced polycarbonate composite shell is lightweight and features superior fit and comfort by using CAD technology
  • Anti-Scratch Pinlock-ready Face shield (HJ-09) features a 3D design with 95% UV protection
  • Side face shield lock mechanism for an ultra-secure seal
  • Pinlock-ready (Pinlock lens insert sold separately)
  • RapidFire Shield Replacement System provides ultra-quick and tool-less removal and installation of the face shield
  • 2-Stage face shield closure system with one-touch center open/close shield locking system for an extremely tight and secure seal
  • ACS (Advanced Channeling Ventilation System) provides full front to back airflow which flushes heat and humidity up and out
  • SuperCool Interior made from anti-bacterial, moisture wicking fabric
  • Crown and cheek pads are fully removable and washable
  • Integrated air deflector is included

saved my life
Two days ago i got in a motorcycle accident .I was driving at 45mph when a car intersected in my way causing me to apply my breaks and my bike sending me flying, and the first impact i took was my head. Luckily thanks to this amazing HJC C-17 helmet i left the accident without a scratch or bump in my head. It protected my head at 100%. Not so lucky for my shoulder but this helmet works and i highly recommended. Thank you Revzilla for selling such high end products that actually save lifes.

I had the helmet for about a year. Its a good helmet for those of us with round heads. I recently encountered a deer and ended up separating from the bike. I did black out of a few minutes but otherwise no damage to the neck or head. I am replacing it with the same thing.

Great bang for the buck
I've owned a few Shoei helmets and liked them, but always wondered if I was paying extra for the name. Seven years ago I bought an HJC CL-SP and it was every bit as good as the Shoei's. This helmet replaced that one and is even better. Quieter, flows more air, and the interior is as plush as anything out there. Very satisfied in the quality and features, especially at this price point.

Great helmet at great price!
I only have a few rides with the new helmet so far, but I'm happy with it. It almost feels like my head isn't going to fit through the hole in the bottom, but once it's on it's perfect. Airflow was good enough to keep from fogging up on a 38 degree morning as long as I kept moving, and I did not notice any unexpected drafts. I haven't really found myself missing having more positions on the visor, but I will note that my CL-14 I had before had much more adjustability at the visor.

One thing to keep in mind, and I saw this mentioned elsewhere, is that the helmet seems more designed for the upright "cruiser" seating position than the "sport" position. On my FZR600 when doing highway/interstate riding (70ish MPH), I notice a lot of wind noise when I duck down, but it is almost completely silent if I sit up really straight. I wear earplugs anyways, so it's not a deal breaker for me, but I'm thinking of trying a chin curtain with it to see if it helps.

By far the BEST helmet for your money!
To start, this helmet is absolutely amazing! I got the white for better visibility and love it. The visor is HUGE which doesn't obscure your vision one bit. The first time riding with this, I thought for a second that I didn't even have my helmet on because it is super comfortable and has such a wide view through the visor. The air flow is good, but of course it gets hot when going really slow or when stopped. It's also a VERY quiet helmet. I used to wear earplugs almost everywhere I went and now I don't need to. Even going 70+ down the highway it's quieter than some of my other helmets when I'm only going about 30 or 40. Some of my friends even said they would prefer my CL-17 over their $500+ Shoei and Arai helmets after I let them test it out. Seriously the BEST purchase I've made so far!

It's OK. Wish I went with something else though
First off, I bought this helmet at a local shop, not revzilla.

I've owned this helmet for a year now and although I like it, i'm still wishing that I spent a little extra on something nicer.

Cons-

~Every time I go on a 20 minute + ride I get home and I have a line on my forehead, I don't know why this is. But it's annoying and people stare at me and notice it.

~It's slightly heavy, I mean for the price it is light. But with this helmet + my sena + my go pro it is just too much for my neck to handle. The helmet alone is fine, but I wished I went with something super light to accommodate this. If you don't ride with these extras then you should be fine.

~Didn't come with a chin curtain, I was able to buy one though for it.

~The medium is usually what I wear but it was too loose on this helmet and the small fits alright, but it is a bit on the tight side.

~speaker cut outs were not large enough too. But they fit in there with a little persuasion.

Pros-

-Nice aerodynamic shape
-I love the looks of the helmet
-plenty of vents, keeps head cool
-SNELL approved
-Good price!

All in all, it's a decent helmet. If you're only looking to spend $150 then it's almost impossible to beat it. Me personally, I wished I just pony'd up the extra $200-300 and got the RF 1200 (which I will be picking up sometime this winter).

Exceeded expectations
I spent a lot of time on this website and thanks to the excellent videos and detailed descriptions finally decided that for my needs this helmet should suit me perfectly and I can definitely say it has exceeded all expectations for replacing my aging modular HJC SyMax helmet (discontinued model). Which I won't compare the CL17 to because its apples and oranges really, so much has changed over the years this new CL is miles ahead of that old model, modular or not. Fit and finish is top notch, fitment is perfect for me based on the chart, I measured at 22" and the small is exactly what I needed. The snell m2010 approval really sold me on it, just because I'm a scooter rider doesn't mean that at 60mph my head will hit the ground any different than a sport bike at the same speed. Its a major plus to have snell certification in this price bracket. Very good ventilation and surprisingly quiet as well. I bought the matte finish and its flawless with no imperfections in the paint and it just looks superb, I would recommend this helmet and revzilla to anyone that just wants a darn good helmet but doesn't want to spend 3 to 4 even 5 times as much on some of the more expensive models.

Good budget helmet. Good value for sure.
I bought this helmet to replace another helmet i bought when i started riding. The old one was borderline too large and noisy.

I went with this helmet because of good reviews and decent price.

The helmet is comfortable and breathes well. It's a bit noisy, but i expect that with a budget helmet, so i wear ear plugs.

The helmet finish is very nice, and the visor mechanisms work great. Easy to get the visor on and off.

Excellent Value!
Well put together, very good in all aspects except for noise - this is much louder than I would like, even with ear plugs. Really does allow users to easily wear glasses too.

Weight is evenly distributed, and it is the best venting helmet I have ever worn, without exception - consider this my summer helmet. It also looks quite good (white of course).

Only other gripe I have is the "snap-in" chin curtain offered as a direct fit - it is terrible. Use instead one from a CL-15 or RKT-101 (or any other non-snap HJC curtain) - "slide-in" curtains fit between liner and outer shell in chinbar, and I have one of the CL-15 installed without issue.

Summary - excellent except for noise and "direct-fit" chin curtain (which should have been supplied with helmet to be honest).

Is there a sun visor for this one?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It does not have an internal sun visor. However you could get a smoked pin lock insert, or a smoked visor
I heard that the pads inside are interchangeable between sizes. Is that true? And if so I fit a large but I would like a more snug fit for the cheek pads. What would be my best option?

-Jim B
A shopper on Jun 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the cheek pads are interchangeable. I bought a Medium helmet (comes with 30 mm pads) and replaced the cheek pads with 20mm to fit my face.
Has anyone tied a bluetooth insert in this model? If so how was the function of the blue tooth, and how much was the fit changed?
A S on Mar 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: What kind of bluetooth insert are you referring to? We use the Sena SMH-5FM bluetooth headsets with these. There is no change in fit, the area that HJC intended for bluetooth speakers is deep enough for the speakers to not protrude. The bluetooth works well, the 5FMs are louder than the 5's and my wife has to turn her headset down even with earplugs.
Is the "HJC" logo on the solids a removable sticker? Also, will it fit like the CL-16? Can't find any local store to try it on.

Thanks!

Has anyone had any experience attaching a GoPro full face helmet chin mount to this helmet?

BEST ANSWER: I have done that exact thing with mine. I used 3M VHB (very high bond) tape to attach it. No problems and works great !

I currently fit in a CL-16, XXXL - Will this (CL-17) fit the same in a XXXL?
Michael M on Feb 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I feel past and present that hjc sizing is very accurate to the chart revzilla provides along with the various models hjc sells, is xxxl is what fit you properly for the cl16 I see no reason it shouldn't just as well on the new cl17. Hope this helps
Considering the HJC CL-17 helmet. I see that it is "pin lock-ready". What is that and how can I order the helmet WITH pin lock?
A shopper on Jun 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Pin lock is no joke, it works as advertised. When you buy your helmet select a pin lock lens in the color you want and your good to go. Don't order a pin lock ready shield, order the pin lock lense. I use light smoke but will also be ordering a clear as well because although the light smoke does it's job during the day at night it's a little too dark for my taste.
I bought this helmet in Medium and the wind noise is unbearable at 60mph+. It's not the helmet though it's that the pads don't connect with the side of my neck and wind gets under and in the helmet. The cheeks are pretty good but to the rear of the cheek pad it seems to get thinner and doesn't connect with my neck.

Will going up a cheek pad size help or is this helmet not meant for me?
Vindo on Aug 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I had a big problem with wind noise and it was because there is no chin curtain to block the wind coming in the from underneath the front of the helmet. You can buy the HJC CL-17 Chin Curtain separately on Revzilla, which is a flat, mesh attachment that snaps into the bottom of the helmet. This reduces wind coming in the helmet and significantly cuts down on the noise as well. Hope that helps!
