HJC IS-33 2 Helmet

The HJC IS-33 2 is a configurable helmet that features modern styling and an internal sun visor. For cooler temperatures or extended highway travel leave the full face shield intact. For warmer weather or slower speed riding you can swap out the shield for an integrated peak visor to capitalize on more airflow.

Features:

  • Advanced Polycarbonate Composite Shell is lightweight with superior fit and comfort using advanced CAD technology
  • Aerodynamic shell with large eyeport for greater visibility
  • Impact absorbing, single-density EPS liner
  • One-touch integrated smoke-tinted inner sun shield deploys and retracts quickly and easily and is adjustable to three positions
  • ACS Advanced Channeling Ventilation System provides flow-through ventilation
  • Multi-Stage intake vents and exhaust vents allow full front to back fresh airflow that flushes heat and humidity out of the helmet
  • Moisture-Wicking and odor-free interior with advanced SuperCool antibacterial fabric
  • Comfortable, removable and washable grooved interior in the temple area for riders who wear glasses
  • HJ-17R Shield QuickSlide shield replacement system allows for quick, secure and tool-less shield removal and installation
  • Optically correct face shield offers 95% UV protection
  • Nylon Strap Retention System neatly secures chin strap with dual D-Ring closure
  • Peak visor included
  • 2 shell sizes and 2 EPS sizes
  • DOT approved

Excellent Open Face Helmet
If you are on the fence about this helmet or the HJC FG Jet like I was then hear me out. I tried both of them and went with the IS 33 II for one main reason. This helmet is MUCH MUCH MUCH quieter than the FG Jet. FG Jet was unbearable with the shield down and no ear plugs. When the shield is up or off it's a totally different story, but when down it was brutal. Decided to give the IS 33 II a shot even though I figured it would sound the same. Boy was I wrong. You can easily ride with this helmet at highway speeds with the shield down.. Don't get me wrong, my full face is quieter, but for an open face this is pretty good and will not make you deaf. The other plus about this helmet over the FG-Jet is that it does have the dedicated speaker cut outs, so it's a little more comm friendly. The Jet has two features going for it compared to the IS 33 II which are better/more venting and a fiberglass shell. I held them both at the same time and they felt the same weight to me. I wanted to like the Jet but the noise level was unacceptable with the shield down.
If that's a priority for you then go with the IS-33 II

Good product
I originally ordered the XL and had to send it back due to the sizes running small. I measured for a large but thought I was being safe going larger and it still wasn't enough. Got the 2XL and it fit my melon well. 2 weeks after receiving it I went down hard after hitting a dog @ 50 mph. I went down on my left side banging the helmet on the asphalt in the temple area. I didn't even know I had hit my head until later when I saw deep scratches in the helmet. Not the slightest headache or neck injury. Just wish my bike faired as well as the helmet. Good product

Everything You Need in One Lid
I bought my IS-33 II some time in June or July of last year. I had an IS-33 at the time and I thought it was pretty good especially once broken-in. Initially, after using that for about an hour and a half, I felt a lot of pressure at the front and back of my head. That disappeared once the helmet was broken-in. This second iteration of the IS-33 felt right the moment I put it on. I'm a size L and this one fits me perfectly. The face shield is quite long which gives better coverage. Removable and installation is super easy. The drop-down internal sun visor is also better. I love the ventilation of this helmet especially when I'm riding up a mountain, for example. I can actually feel the warm air being sucked away from my head and cool air coming in. The top of my head becomes really cool.The liner and cheek pads are excellent. I've only got two gripes with this lid. First, the short strap on the left side is too short. Second, it's slightly heavier than my other three-quarter, open-face helmet. Overall though, this my favorite helmet ever. It's stylish and conservative at the same time. I have the white version. I want a gloss black too.

Quiet for a 3/4 but only when not using shield
This helmet is replacing my 1/2 helmet to go along with my Shoei full helmet.

Some reviews indicate a loud helmet. Well, yes if you use the face shield in the hope to replace the need for a full helmet. It's unfair to compare this to a full helmet. Instead, compare it to a 1/2 helmet at highway speeds and it's a huge step up in noise and wind control. It's the reason for my 'quiet' rating. But the minute you put the face shield on, you have a huge, uncomfortable amount of wind noise and even increased buffeting.

As far as fit, it's tighter than my Shoei full at the same size but it's not uncomfortable. Also, my Shoei seems a bit more oval that does better for me.

I'm happy with my purchase, especially for the price. I just wasn't ready to spend the extra $100+ for the Shoei. But for those with the coin with a Shoie head, I'd go there.

This helmet is dope.
You can't go wrong with this helmet. I've been rocking this helmet for 5 days now, and I'm total sold on it. Bought in gloss black, added the smoke shield, ripped off that stupid white HJC sticker on the front, and the helmet looks bad to the bone. As soon as I slipped this baby on over my cranium, all the gals in the neighborhood got pregnant. I had a sea of chicks standing at my door wanting child support money. But seriously folks, I'm super impressed. I rode an FJ Jet for two years, and that helmet was super noisy compared to this one. This helmet won't disappoint.

I bought this for my wife. She did not like her full face helmet, did not want a half helmet. She loves this one. she likes both shields either the clear one or the shaded one no more wearing sunglass's. Air flow is great. Would recommend this helmet to anyone.

Perfect fit
This is my second HJC helmet, my first is a full face. I bought this one because I wanted a helmet for hot weather, but do not like the wind noise from the open face and no rattle like my full face. The fit is perfect, although I was worried because I ordered according to chart and thought a medium would be too small. I love the flip down sun shield since I do not have to carry glasses anymore. There is no distortion in shield and for some reason there seems to be a wider field of vision than my open face. Head buffing seems to be less, but I have not rode a lot yet. Chin strap snap is very easy to snap. Quality is hands down the best I have owned.

Great value and good comfort
I purchased this helmet a about a year ago and over 20K miles of riding. I'm very pleased with the helmet as far as comfort, weight, and seal on the face shield.

I bought the HJC mirrored visor at the same time, the price was great and it fits the helmet perfectly and makes a good water seal even at highway speeds. However, the "Mirror Finish" wears off where you grip it to raise and lower the shield. Maybe this is OK since replacing it is not expensive I can afford to get a new one each year. I really think HJC needs to look at e quality here, I have several other Shoei Helmets and have not experienced this issue.

Had a problem getting my HD speakers in the recess and ended up taking the speakers apart to get them to fit. Got a 2X size and fits good but having trouble keeping it up off my glasses in the front but not a bad problem. Helmet seems lighters than the Scorpion that I replaced and is quite. The flip up tinted visor is great and easier to use than any that I have had before. Overall, I love this helmet and consider it a good deal.

Why did you choose this?
RevZilla Store
The main reason I chose this helmet was the venting. There are few reasonably priced 3/4 helmets with quality venting to keep your head cool. Also, the really big factor - I can exchange the face shield for a sun visor. This is such an important safety factor that, it seems to me, many manufacturers have forgotten.
HJC has provided me with a quality product in the past, I would expect that to continue with this purchase.

I've had the first HJC IS 33 for five years and logged over 45k using this helmet. It was an outstanding helmet at that price point. Harley recommends a new helmet every five years or when needed. So, it seemed natural to buy again what really works.

Will you be carrying alternate shields? specifically metallic yellow
Michael S on Sep 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Do NOT use this helmet with a shield. It converts the helmet into an uncomfortable loud helmet at speeds approaching highway speed.
Is the size/fit of the IS-33 the same as the IS-33-2?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is for me.
Can I get a pin lock shield for this helmet?
A shopper on Dec 16, 2016
Can you easily mount communication devises, blue tooth,etc. ? Marlin T.
A shopper on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is plenty room in the ear area. Even though I do not use media speakers in this fashion, it looks as if installation would be easy. All the interior linings snap in place.
Are the peak visor and helmet bag included ?
Pat C on Oct 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the visor and bag is included with this purchase.
Are there different shades for the drop down visor?
Steve S on Jan 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can get different tints. The standard smoke wasn't dark enough for my wife so we got her the "dark smoke" which was a little better. They also offer amber tint. Revzilla sells them.
This is advertised as an open face helmet but it is only shown with a full face shield. Does it come with a visor so it can be a full open face helmet?
A shopper on Oct 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it comes with a visor and can be an open face although I haven't tried it yet . Minnesota is starting to turn cold and the full face shield feels good . But yes you have the option.
Can I keep the integrated sun visor in the down position when I flip up the face shield? Or does the sun visor rise when you lift the shield?

BEST ANSWER: The sun visor can be held in either position. When I ride I usually have the face shield up and the sun visor down. Another gerat feature is the cut outs for either your sun glasses or regular glasses.. I am a true fan of these helmets this is my second one!!
does this helmet come with the clear face shield?

BEST ANSWER: Yes it comes with a full clear face shield, a tinted eye shield plus a sun visor. The visor can only be installed if the full face shield is removed.
Does wearing glasses interfere with the integrated visor?

BEST ANSWER: Wearing glasses does not interfere with the sun visor & you can even put the helmet on first then slide your glasses on thanks to channels built into the helmet for the arms of glasses. HJC thought of everything when they designed this helmet.
