What's this?

HJC Sy-Max III HiViz Helmet

The HJC Symax 3 Helmet uses a composite fiberglass main shell to keep weight to a minimum but uses a polycarbonate chin bar to keep the cost at a minimum. Amenities include a drop down internal sun visor, a pinlock-ready face shield and a removable moisture-wicking anti-bacterial liner.

Note: The SyMax 3 has a fairly round internal shape. It is ideal for people who need more ear and temple room but conversely it is less suitable for people who need more room in the forehead area.

Features:

  • Advanced fiberglass shell with polycarbonate chin bar
  • ACS Advanced Channeling Ventilation System front to back airflow flushes heat and humidity up and out
  • Optically superior Pinlock-prepared face shield with anti-scratch coating (Pinlock anti-fog insert sold separately)
  • QuickSlide tool-less shield replacement system
  • One-touch integrated smoke-tinted SunShield deploys quickly and easily
  • Single-button chin bar/face shield release
  • SilverCool moisture-wicking and odor-free interior with advanced silver anti-bacterial fabric, pads are removable and washable
  • DOT approved

$100 better than the IS-MAX BT?
This is my 3rd HJC modular. I fit right between sizes and opted for the smaller size. It took a good 20 hours for it to start breaking in but it's feeling more comfortable now. Because I always wear a skull cap or balaclava I probably should have gone to the larger size. The liner is more premium than the IS-Max I've been wearing for the last 4 or 5 years. The visor also seals better. The view port is excellent. At lower speeds it's reasonably quiet but unless you have good wind protection at highway speeds the noise is horrendous. On the Tenere over 60mph noise isn't too bad, on the KLR with a taller aftermarket windshield the roar above 60mph is terrible. With thousands of hours in the IS-MAX with no real complaint but weight I can't really say the SYMAX is hands down $100 better. It is a slightly better helmet for way less than a "premium" helmet.

Exactly what we were looking for.
Wife and I decided we both needed a helmet upgrade. She had a full face with 'girly' designs. I had a black modular that was...um...budget. We choose the HJC because it was modular, had a sun screen (wife said instantly yes because of this feature alone) AND it is bright yellow. We both noticed other riders with HiViz helmets were more easily seen. Had our first ride today (80+ miles to go to brunch).

We both ordered based on the size chart. We both find the size chart to be right on!

I had a short solo ride to the closest gas station with an air pump while wife was getting ready. I intentionally did not wear ear plugs for this short ride. I found this helmet to be quieter that what I was using before. Riding with ear plugs later in the morning I found the helmet to be less noisy at speed (60-70 mph) that what I had before; but, there was a different character to the noise. There was more low frequency noise than I was used to hearing. But, this impression may only exist because the overall noise level was lower than I was accustomed to.

I found that even new out of the box the comfort level was really good. There is good room immediately around the ears. (space for intercom).

One thing I noticed was that turning my head from side to side there was less variability on air flow forces on my neck muscles. This is a good thing. I ride a 'standard' bike, with an upright riding position.

The restaurant where we stopped had large windows. We could see our reflection when we pulled up. The HiViz really stood out.

Helmets are such a personal thing, it is hard to write or make sense of written reviews. Head shape and personal preference are the rule of the day. Frankly, I was really surprised that just using the size chart for two different riders, (extra small and large) and buying sight unseen, worked out so very well. We both would do this again.

NOTE on sizing: Wife was just in upper bound of the "extra small" range on the chart. I was just in the lower bound "large" range on the chart. We ordered just what the chart said. It worked for us (and worked well).

Dissappointed
This helmet is a lot tighter on my forehead than my Symax 2. After less than a year, the hi-viz color is already fading and the logo on the front is flaking off. Also, the liner keeps pulling loose in the front (probably due to the tight fit and my sweaty head due to poor ventilation).

Fitment guide is right on
Just got back into riding after a 30 year hiatus and just bought my first Harley. One day on the bike convinced me I wouldn't ride without a helmet again.

I was a little leery about buying a helmet over the internet but with the return policy, I took the chance. The fitment chart was right on.

I thought a lot about the color and the reactions I would get, but the modular feature and high visibility of the yellow won out.

I get very positive comments from every type of rider when I stop. Not having to remove the helmet every time I do is a huge plus. Everyone comments they see me coming from way off.

The DD rings are still the pain I remembered them to be, but with an aftermarket quick release, I couldn't be happier.

All the gear all the time. I'm way too old to heal and I seem to have gotten softer in the head over the years.

Good helmet packed with features
When it was time to finally replace my five-year-old hi-viz full-face helmet, I wanted more features. And this HJC flip-up did the trick. It came in a hi-viz color, but added two new features that I've always wanted: A flip-up front, and a retractable sun visor.

The flip-up latch mechanism feels very solid and snaps into each position with authority. By that, I mean that there's no question that you've either fully raised or lowered it because you hear a solid snap when it's engaged. And the one-hand latch is great and easy to use.

The sun visor mechanism is great. I can easliy find the slider on the top of the helmet that lowers the visor, and popping it back up is a simple tap on the button on the top of the helmet. Both motions are easy to make while riding. My only gripe is that the sun visor is not very strong (dark), but only a mild smoke tint.

Does the job
I've always liked HJC's large eye port. I had the SymaxII. The new model adds some new options like bluetooth capability built in.

Very Good Flip UP
Got two of these for recent trip and installed the SMH-5 FM units on them they required just a bit of cutting for the speakers but nothing major. In use the were very nice. 1st Flip up helmets for us and we both liked them. The built in Sun Visor is a big plus. Fit seemed about the same as Shoei, noise was a bit more and I thought the venting was a bit less but overall very comfortable and nice to have the different options for long days on the bike. Works pretty well in the rain too. I did miss the "just cracked open" of the Shoei visor. This just has the 1st notch which is a bit more open. Also like the safety color.

Nice Helmet for the Money
This is my third Sy-Max. With neck problems the light weight fits the bill. Styling, lining comfort, sun shield and air flow all a plus. My only gripe is that they haven't made it any quieter than the Sy-Max II. Still wearing ear plugs. Rick M
