Superb value for a great helmet
First, I must have an oval head because tried multiple Shoei helmets and none fit right. I have had HJC before, but this one is a major step up from my old CL-17. A few things I really like: comfort, air flow is great, dark visor makes helmet look great and tint is good. The helmet is a bit loud and I am probably missing other great features $500+ helmets offer, but this is such an improvement over my past helmet and does many things well that for the price can't be beat.

it's certainly a helmet; does pretty well in the rain
The main things I was looking for in a helmet was something that fits, something that's DOT/Snell-certified, and something that wouldn't punch a hole through my wallet. So far, this one's covered those three points, and on top of that, it's got an appropriately obnoxious design and a visor that stays exactly in the position I put it. It gets a little heavy and claustrophobic after four or so straight hours, but that's what I expect from any solid block of foam and plastic that's firmly encasing my brainpan.

With all the vents and visors firmly closed, I rode through aabout an hour of downpour and the inner pads didn't even get wet!

Saved me
I purchased this back in 2016 and used it for 10K. 06July17 I hit a fox that came out and I lost it. The report says I "lawn darted" into the pavement and then slid 177 feet before coming to a stop.
I chewed up my right side of my helmet and broke my face shield, but I am ok. Slight headache but not a single scratch or bump on my head.
Safety gear saves lives!

What a great helmet
This is the best helmet i've owned so far. I actually bought it for boat racing. Open cockpit 100+mph on water. So keep that in mind. I have not tried to use it on my motorcycle, yet.

It fits good and snug. It has a very tight seal on it, so any water spray is kept out very well. The chin strap fits almost as if it isn't there. It's pretty quiet. I have on board communication and it isn't a problem for the radio man to hear me or for me to hear him. Even over the noise of an open header V8 engine.

I would buy another HJC.

Nice helmet
Love the graphics and color. Fit well. Really notice the sound difference when Visor is closed. Only issue I've had is the base plate does want to lock open on one side. Had similar issue on another helmet (same model, different graphic). Once replaced it, it's been fine.

Love this helmet
Moved up from CL-12 HJC to this one. The fit, air flow, comfort, weight, and look of the helmet are all much improved. You can really hear the air flowing inside of the helmet which makes it just a touch noisy but it is not loud nor does it prevent you from hearing everything else around you. I was nervous about a medium because I was at the upper end of size range but it is absolutely the right fit.

Great color choices and a cool style. Great features for the money spent. And protection with easy quick features.
I recommend this product if you're looking for exceptional quality for a reasonable price. Looking to not overspend but remain in style and awesome features as well as comete safety. This is the way to go.

Needed An Extra Helmet
Great little helmet I use as an extra. Got it half off so can't complain bout to much. It's not a RPHA Pro 11 not 10 but it's a great helmet for budgets and/or beginners and like I use as an extra. Vision is good. Wider than the Pro 10. Similar to the 11. Air flow decent. Little loud on Interstate /highway speeds. Use the HJC size chart and it'll fit perfect unless your heads an odd shape. :-)

Price over everything else. Second safety standards, etc.
Kevin S on Aug 24, 2017
This Make and Model was recommended to me by a Reddit user and the price was fair (half off the MSRP) due to item being on close out with only one remaining.

I've been happy with my HJC helmets, and the graphics on this one were cool and highly visible.
Dan C on May 22, 2016
owned an FG-17 in matte black which took a spill. Loved the fit, finish and the airflow so went with it again.
Also tried to get other helmets like the Scorpion R710, Shark S700, Shark Spd-R, AGV K4 but couldn't find any retail store stocking those and I did not want to order something that may not fit.
Inxsible I on May 12, 2016

How is this helmet at keeping the wind out? I have really dry eyes and the wind can be a huge frustration.
Ryan N on Jul 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: With vents closed I haven't had an issue. Get a chin curtain though.
do you guys have a picture of the black and orange one?
