Great Helmet and Great Value!
Was looking for a module helmet that fit great and wasn't too heavy. This helmet gave me both! I'm very happy with this helmet.
Its very light and also very quiet! I use Sena 20s with it and everyone I talk to with it can't believe I'm riding down the road! I also bought the pinlock because in the past I had a problem fogging up full face helmets. The Pinlock basically eliminated this problem! I also bought the chin curtain to help cutdown on excess noise and it really works great!
Overall I have had many helmets and I would rate this one as the best!

Finally a good value in a well made modular
I must say this newish offering from HJC hits on all the points I was looking for in a Modular lid. The helmet does little of the things I read in reviews as cons and other than the design is not the lightest possible weight as some newer ones it is reasonable and under way never feels heavy .

The sun shade operates flawlessly and comes down in steps to accommodate anyone's need for full coverage , the pin lock installed easily and my experience with these in the past has been positive. The operations of all HTC sunshades and visor removal and such mechanical pieces have always been industry leaders and this one is no exception.

The air does move but is not too obvious as some of my Arai lids but it obviously does move a decent amount of air and the helmet fits so snug that it is going to important to break in before you take a long trip. To this point , I bought my size and while I fall between the medium and Large and went with the medium as the shell size is noticeably smaller than the large and that is always a good idea. Yes it WAS snug. Too snub but starts to loosen up pretty fast when you ride as much as I do. First day was too snug for sure but it is already just about perfect after only one or two long rides in the mountains.

Next is the comm unit install. I absolutely love the way these HjC lids are fitted and while it did make a few challenges for the Sena units that I use it does work and there are no issues once you take some care and trial and error . By that I mean the sea clamp unit is not the best option so I used the stick on which has worked well in the past. Placement of the unit is important and a fine line between enough boom room for mic and not interfere with the chin bar closure and angle of the mount . To say it requires a finess would be an understatement . There is a little hole in the neck/cheek pad outer edge that MUST engage a clip inside the bottom edge of the helmet to fully mount and that is the exact point that you need to mount the adhesive backed mount for the Sena. Rear ward of that you will need to cut a gap for the wires to feed down into the helmet for speakers.

FWIW I DID try and use the hybrid good to avoid all this "Finessing" but the helmet fits so perfect and SNUG that I could feel the boom on my face and it was not acceptable at all.
So there it is . Everything buttons up perfectly and the detail and construction of this helmet is amazing . If you just can't adapt to a snug fit , then go up one size but remember after break in you may be wearing a helmet that can rotate on hurt you nose on a head crash, I made the choice for safety rather than instant comfort and this was the right one for me.

Sunny side up . ,

Good looks, light weight, great value!!
This helmet has a lot of great features. I wear glasses and i can put on and remove this helmet without taking them off. It has channels for the ear stems so no pressure on your face. the fit was a little tight( I ordered a large) and the cheek pads were so tight it hurt my face to close the chin bar. Swapped out for xxl cheek pads and now the fit is great. My communication system installed with no problems. The drop down sun visor is awesome. The chin bar is easy to use and the helmet is pretty quite for a modular helmet. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking a modular helmet.

Great Value, updated features,fast shipping, great price
Perfect for touring/commuting...no need to remove your helmet to communicate with passenger or the cashier at the gas stop.
Metal pins/latches connect the lock on the front bar....face shield is easy to remove and replace ( 1 lever on each side). will accept sun glasses ( ear stems) if needed( it has an interior drop down tinted shield- but out here in the SW...some dark shades help on those long bright days)... HJC continues to evolve their line of modular helmets with great results...the new "flat finish" on this model makes it up to date along with better interior and cooling when compared to earlier models...would purchase again.

Great helment with nice features
Great helmet fits snug at first but breaks in quickly. Cool morning rides with shield fully down will fog slightly. When sun is low in sky and inner shield is down the tinting could be a little darker. The opening and closing works easily even with gloves on. Venting is good with enough air on the warm summer days in the northeast .Modular versatility is great.

HJC as always...
HJC is one of the few helmet companies that you can count on for consistency each and every time. Always a great product. Should have included the chin skirt to reduce wind and noise though, but overall a great helmet for the pricing.

Great helmet although a bit snug
I really like this helmet. I am replacing a CL-Max 2 that I destroyed in a crash while riding in the Rockies in September...totaled the bike! The helmet saved my life! I am very happy with this new helmet. The only difference between this one and my previous one is the included sun visor. I do find the IS-Max 2 to be a little tighter fit than the CL-Max 2, but I've only been wearing it for about 5 hours so far and the riding season is over here in New Hampshire. All-in-all, a great helmet!

Great helmet for the price
Love this helmet. It is my 3rd JVC. Great product. Love the design. Everything works smoothly. First time I've had the built in sunshades. Wonderful. Love them! Venting is good. Stays relatively cool, important here in the Southwest. Love the two pins that hold down the front. A definite improvement over the old style that I have had. Lining is easily removed for cleaning. The only fault I would find is that my head in longer than wide. My forehead is pressed to hard at the front when the sides are adjusted properly. It is breaking in to my head - slowly! But the sizing is accurate.
