Final a 4X Modular for ME!!
I have a large head and have looked for a modular helment for nearly 4 years now. In the past I had to settle for either a 3/4 helmet in 3X or a Full Face 3X Helmet. Any 3X Modular helmet I tried, the few available, did not fit me. They were either the wrong shape or had some obstruction up around the chin area that made them useless for me. So I settled primarily for the Shoei RF1100 in a 3X Full Face. After having an accident and ruining my Shoei rather than my head, I tried the HJC CL-MAX II in a 4X. Wow.. it's a GREAT FIT. While the Shoei 3x is 66cm and the HJC 4X is 67-68cm, the round shape of the HJC seems to account for the extra few centimeters. Anyway, this HJC in a 4X fits me perfect and I could not be happier.

Very good at the price point, but not as quiet as preferred
I tried several different brands/models of full-face and modular helmets. Without trying them on while riding, I read reviews hoping to find an inexpensive helmet that would let me listen to music via blue tooth (Sena). I went the HJC for the comfort and the fact that it allowed me to get my Oakley framed prescription glasses on and off with ease (this requirement eliminated a more snugly fitting Bell that I liked as well, but the Bell would not let the glasses sit on my face properly, nor get the glasses on easily once the helmet was on). The HJC fit well, right out of the box, and installation of the Sena BT system was easy. The module piece was initially stiff, but swings open and closed with little effort. The helmet has two characteristics that might prompt a different helmet. One, air flow, while technically adjustable, adjusts only in a small and mostly ineffective range. Helmet with neck gaiter is very comfortable in cold weather (winter riding at 7000 feet, with moisture), but during warm weather, air flow with shield closed could be better. Two, even with my windshield adjusted for maximum air deflection off of rider, the noise level of the helmet prevents rider from decent quality music (audio on phone calls is fine, though). The face shield simply doesn't seal well enough near the hinges to keep wind noise down enough. Given the price point, though, I recommend the helmet unless the rider needs more air flow during hot days, or if the rider wants a quieter helmet for music.

Too long/narrow
I had such high hopes for this helmet, but I ended up being very disappointed. The padding of the helmet fit great - felt nice and snug and safe. However, the shell was so long and narrow! The chin bar would hit my shoulder if I turned my head just slightly. And the face shield/chin bar stuck out so far from my face, I felt that it kind of defeated the purpose of even being there. I could easily stick both hands under the helmet and out the front through the face shield, my entire arm could fit up in there. There was a huge gap - I felt that if I got into an accident a rock or something could easily lodge up in there. Might as well wear a 3/4 open face. Therefore I returned it. However, it was cool how easily it opened, I really like this style of modular helmet. The field of vision seemed good too.

Fits Great
I have a huge noggin by most standards. I usually wear an XXXL helmet, and this is one of the few I was looking at that fit the size. Even compared to my other 2 3XL helmets, this one fits perfectly. It barely fogs up, and I just ordered a mirror visor as well.

Great helmet, especially for the price
I've used this helmet for commuting and long (300+ mile) highway trips, and overall, I'm pretty happy with it. Comfortable padding. Chin bar feels sturdy when locked in place and the latch is easy to operate. Changing a visor takes seconds. Turning my head at highway speed doesn't feel uncomfortable. Top vents don't feel like they move a whole lot of air, but they do flow some air. It does get uncomfortably loud at high speed, though - I recommend earplugs for any sustained riding over 65mph, especially without a windshield/screen (but in theory, shouldn't we be wearing them anyway?). For the price, I can't complain.

HJC CL Max 2
This is the second CL Max 2 that I have owned and would not have purchased it if was not worth having. In my opinion, a good helmet for the cost considering that the big named ones are hundreds more and not much better! (I've owned one). The lift latch, face shield and front vent all operate smoothly even with gloves on, but the same cannot be said for the top vents. The face shield removes easily, and as for the interior, it gets comfortable after being worn about three times. Noise level is middle of the road but I wear ear plug anyway, so not really an issue. The overall ventilation is okay and it does not feel heavy while worn. Overall opinion, worth the price!

I had a lot of problems with over all quality
I got the helmet in march and had felt it was a good purchase. It seem really big for my head as in looks, yet I felt it would be more protective. I had problems opening the front face part after two months, yet still continue to wear it. Then a screw just fell out and I had to get another. The worst was when I had an accident and the front face part of the helmet came open on its own, causing my face to get unnecessary injury to my face. Not sure about buying another HJC after that.

For the price, you can't beat this outstanding helmet.
This is my first helmet for my first motorcycle so I don't really have a broad base to compare it too. Nevertheless, this helmet is an amazing value. The face shield firmly holds the position you put it in, the chin bar, when in the up position, stays up and does not flop back down on its own (I've seen that happen to some friends). The helmet flows a descent amount of air however I do not like the fact that too much air comes into the helmet from the chin area. It would be nice to block some of the air coming in from under my chin. It's not as heavy as I thought it would be and I can easily ride for a couple of hours (keep in mind I'm a brand new rider) before it starts to feel a little heavy. All in all, I would 100% recommend this as a 1st helmet. I am very glad I made this choice.
