Reviews & Questions
I'll start by saying I have 2 other full faces and they both have their strengths and weaknesses. I'm always switching between the two based on the weather, how far I'm going etc... I thought something like the IS-17 would eliminate the need for multiple helmets with all of its features and it accomplishes that, but not perfectly. I still gave it 4 stars and here's why:
I'll start with fit. Don't want to spend too much time here since we're all different. I'm a Large in every helmet except Icon and this HJC was no exception. The large fits me perfectly. It has that new helmet just a little too tight needs to be broken in feel. The interior is plush and soft and has a high quality feel to it. It did create some pressure at my temples but that's probably due to it not being broken in yet. I'm an intermediate oval and wear a 7.5 hat. Large fits great.
Features. There are many and that's probably what you're most interested in. I'll start with the drop-down visor. The included one is a joke. It's such a light tint it might as well be clear. I ordered the helmet with a dark smoke inner visor and swapped it out immediately. Anyone want to buy a backup light smoke? No? Didn't think so. Once you switch to a tint that actually does something, it works really well. Even the dark smoke could be a little darker but I won't nitpick. It works. There's no anti-fog, though, and it will fog quickly if you drop the visor when stopped with the shield closed. I raise it at every traffic light to keep from fogging. Kind of a pain. It's also not optically correct. The distortion is very noticeable at first but I did get used to it and it wasn't much of a distraction after about 5 minutes. But those first few minutes felt really weird. The HJC mechanism isn't the best, either. Every other company has a switch or lever at the side that's easy to find with a glove and feels smooth and snappy. HJC gives a long slide at the top of the helmet that's hard to find since it's directly in line with the release button and the top vent switch. There's a lot going on at the top of this helmet. Overall, the ability to adapt to night and day without changing shields is well worth the annoyance of a switchboard on your head.
The face shield is a godsend. No anti-fog coating but it comes pinlock ready. So there's even more money you have to spend, but it's well worth it. I ordered the helmet with the pinlock insert and installed it immediately. It works absolutely perfectly. It won't fog on you at all. Not even a little. That's what makes the foggy drop down visor so frustrating. Finally a definitive solution to fogging shields, but then having to deal with fog elsewhere. The pinlock system adds weight, though. So don't be surprised when you feel the heft of the shield. You're trading weight savings for absolutely zero fog and in my opinion, it's a worthwhile trade. The shield release system is about as easy as it gets with only Bell and Shoei being slightly easier. Visibility is good but it's tricky with the pinlock shield in place and the inner shield dropped. There's a lot in your peripheral vision with all those pieces crossing each other. Not so much that head checks are ineffective, but it's really distracting. Not enough to deter me, though, and it's something I feel I'll have. I trouble getting used to. Had to mention it, though.
Ventilation feels non-existent. Opening the top vent did nothing. I couldn't feel any air flow with it open. In fact, most helmets get a lot louder when you open a vent but that didn't happen here so I wonder if the vents on the IS-17 do anything at all. But there could be a reason for that which I'll get to later.
The noise level of the 17 is very acceptable. Wind noise is very low, but road noise is very high. My Bell Vortex has such high wind noise that I can't hear anything else. My Icon Alliance muffles wind noise wonderfully but also muffles everything else. The IS-17 is right in between those. Wind noise is low, but you'll hear every car you pass, you'll have no trouble hearing your engine and you'll hear anyone coming up behind you. So for those of you who want dead quiet, this isn't it. But if all you hate is wind noise, you're covered.
It's got a great shape to it. Mine's a large and there's no bobble head effect. It's pretty perfect in that respect and looks like you want a helmet to look if that makes any sense. I got the intake graphic in blue. Paint quality is beautiful, high gloss with nice lines and gradients with a good mix of solids and metal flake. Definitely worth the few extra bucks for the graphic.
So far, all my complaints have been minor and easily fixable, but I have one major complaint that will prevent me from wearing this helmet until the solution becomes available. This thing desperately needs a chin curtain. Badly. Horribly. In the worst way. I got so much dust in my eyes I had to pull over. Not safe. Pieces of leaves got sucked up in there as well. It made for a very difficult, distracting, and overall unsafe ride. At the time of my writing this, there is no chin curtain available but ZLA has informed me that it will be available soon. I'll be ordering it the second I see it. That might also be why I didn't notice any airflow from the vents. I'm not exaggerating here, so much air is sucked into the helmet I could feel it around my temples. With that much air flowing from underneath, I'm not surprised I didn't feel any air from the vents. I'll leave a follow-up review as a comment after I get a chin curtain on there.
So my overall review on this is that it's a good helmet out of the box but 3 accessories make it really great. The dark smoke internal visor, the pinlock insert and (when it's available) the chin curtain. It's a little heavy so I'm not sure it's a great option for long distances, but for short to medium trips it's borderline perfect. It could very well he the best commuting helmet ever made, especially those days where I ride to work in the dark and then ride home in direct sunlight. If you're looking for just one helmet to do it all without changing shields or having to carry extra stuff, the IS-17 fits the bill. Just know that while it's not perfect, it does everything very well after you add the 3 very necessary upgrades.
Any questions, just leave a comment.
Fit is true, weight is good, vents are decent, noise is loudish, as expected at this price point.
The internal sun visor on this helmet is really subpar. Even when you get a Hjv7 Dark Smoke replacement for the sunvisor, it is the same shade as the stock, no darker. The mechanism feels not terrible, but it seems like the retraction will get worse over time, with the spring wearing out.
Why does this helmet not come with a chin curtain? I purchased one as a separate product locally.
The visor and internal sunvisor do fog up pretty bad, unless you have the visor cracked, or have the pinlock. Pinlock won't help the internal visor though. I am considering spraying it with some Rain-X Plastic.
I was wearing this helmet when I got rear ended, the driver who hit me said I was thrown up into the air on impact. This helmet definitely saved my head from getting split open.
If I didn't end up with such a bad neck injury I would buy another.
1. The pressure boom inside was intolerable over 40mph for rides longer than 45 min. It literally felt like my head was going to explode after a long ride. Installing the HJC Chin Shield fixed this. HJC, its $5, just put it in the box with the helmet. So buy this with the helmet (Link Below)
2. Visor fogged over pretty easy. Installing the clear Pinlock made fog a thing of the past. Buy it with the helmet (Link Below)
3. Horrible clicking noise from the left side of helmet. After the third ride with the helmet I could not take it anymore. I called Revzilla and spoke with Josh. He offered to take it back under warranty but suggested that I look at the visor pivot first and make sure it was factory seated right and there was no slag in there (Had not removed it at this point to install pinlock visor). Sure enough I remove the visor and reinstalled and the clicking is gone. Go Josh!!! I have removed and installed the visor a few more times and it has not come back, so I think we are good.
4. Internal visor is not a replacement for sunglasses and that is a HUGE disappointment. I am tempted to buy the dark smoke IS visor but reviews state its not much better. This is a disappointment as this is the real reason I bought this helmet, to wear with my prescription glasses on long rides.
5. Inside the helmet there is a small cushion liner at the top. At speed this liner would bounce between the top of my head the top of my helmet. I fixed this with a piece of Velcro between the cushion and the foam core. Problem gone.
Now that I have fixed some of the initial issues it is a very nice helmet save for the internal shield that is too light and reviews saying the dark shield is not any better. Again, a Big disappointment. I have gotten a few compliments on its design and looks. It is very comfortable, maybe a tad tight on my cheeks.
One of the best things about this helmet is the built in sun shade. Some reviewers say it isn't dark enough, but I think it's OK. You could combine it with a smoke colored screen to get more protection.
My head measurement falls right between L and XL so I went with L because that's what I have worn with other brands. The fit is perfect for my slightly oval shaped noggin. I found the cheek pads to be too tight so ordered a thinner pair.
My only real complaint is that this is a pretty noisy helmet. On most rides I wear foam ear plugs which reduce the harshness of the noise without getting in the way of hearing traffic.
The IS-17 is a great helmet for anyone on a budget.
The fit is just what I expected from my other HJC for my fairly big head (size XL), the cheek pads are a little tight, the rest is perfect. It is comfortable to wear for extended periods. The drop down sun visor is a little awkward to deploy and retract until you get used to it. Having three positions for the visor to lock into is great, I use the first detent, any lower it would clip my big nose.
I have two minor gripes about this helmet.
One is the helmet should have included the chin wind deflector. It only costs $7. I get so much air coming up through the chin, I can't tell if the vents work. The air also howls in my ears at higher speed, if I close the gap with my hand, the noise goes away. If you buy this helmet, order the deflector with it.
The second gripe is that the tinted sunshield is not as dark as I was hoping it to be, and have read that a replacement is no darker. I don't know if this is just an HJC thing, I have not used other helmets with sunshields. Granted, it is definitely better than no tint at all (I have ridden into a low, setting sun and still could see the road and traffic well enough), but I am going to try applying some tint film and darken it myself.
Overall, this is a good value helmet, it is well made and comfortable, it just needs a couple mods to make it perfect for me.
Good value, BTW. I like mine.
What is the measurement of the smallest opening you can set the visor to?
Can you purchase a chin skirt or do you think the one from my HJC IS-16 might fit?
Second question I do not know the measurement but you can leave a very tiny gab and you can not notice it at all. And it will stay at that gab and not move.
Third question I don't have answer for that one. When i ride in colder weather I use a full face ski mask and that works great with the helmet.
I hope this helps you also the sun visor is amazing I love it and I have to wear glasses and the visor clears them completely.
