Great value helmet

This is my second HJC...IS16 was the last one so I knew the size would be fine.....that was a great helmet and this is exactly the same...great fit...obviously subjective....the visor is a good tight fit and the ratchet seems more refined than the also has a proper latch mechanism which works well. The anti fog insert was a doddle to fit and works well....the helmet seems lighter than my previous on which is a bonus...maybe a bit less wind noise but to be honest not sure as I wear ear sum up...a great helmet at a great price delivered in the usual professional fashion by Sportsbikeshop....there were a couple of light scratches on it which would probably buff out but they were tiny and to be fair it'll pick up more in its lifetime so not even worth bothering a good un!

Good value helmet that is hugely better than the competition at this price, I've covered around 250 miles so far & the Pinlock works - no misting in ambient temperatures between 12c and -2c with the visor closed (locked) even at junctions. The visor was easy to fit and feels substantial. The vents work well, the lining materials are more comfortable than its competition and in size L fits my 59cm head perfectly. The finish is excellent for this price, as good as other helmets I've owned which cost 75% more. It is also quieter than the last two helmets I've owned. The only negatives for me are the vent switches which feel light weight and the D ring loops are flat rather than more rounded and thicker - nothing that would stop me buying this model again or another HJC. Ordered at 13:30 on Monday & delivered by 11:45 on Tuesday, properly packaged and top service! Very Happy customer.

Love that it comes with the anti fog insert for free, the visors easy to remove and refit, the internal sun visor is great and easy to use while riding.

Superb helmet

It is my first helmet and I am very glad I have chosen it. The helmet is very stylish, comfortable, has a sun visor which is very useful when sunny and also has a 5 star Sharp rating.

Must have had a lemon...

It is a great helmet, but had problem with mine, however Sportsbikeshop did return the helmet to get repaired (2 weeks). Helmet is great for winter and it doesn't vent well enough for hot day use. Very comfortable and Pinlock works great. Had to remove breath guard as it blew my breath away from visor and onto my glasses - not fun. Problem I had with mine was complete vent system at from fell off leaving vents exposed - luckily these only vent to the visor and not onto you. Helmet had to be sent back and took two weeks to repair. For me it's a bit worrying that a 5 star helmet has a part falling off... Even if its nothing to do with the protection, kinda makes you wonder

Good value

This helmet is good value: it's 5 star rating and lighter than my last one were both appealing features. The only down side I have found to date, is the road noise. It's a tad noisier than I'm used to.

Top helmet

Really comfortable fit straight out the box and the Pinlock system sounds great, only I've not got round to fitting it yet. But noisier than I was expecting. I am quite new to riding big bikes and although I have a pretty decent fairing I still get a bit of noise and have to wear ear plugs for longer journeys. I thought it was really uncomfortable to begin with but turns out it was just my new comms system. Oppps. Overall great helmet but yet to try out all the features. Definitely an upgrade from my last Halfords helmet, but that still gets 5 star Sharp rating anyway.

Great helmet compared to 'Premium' brand

For the price I can't fault it. This is my second HJC IS17 as I have crash-tested the first one! It sustained sliding into a kerb head first very well, I can confirm. As for wearing it: the padding is grand. I compare it to my Shoei NXR and the IS17's inside is nicer, the material used makes it more agreeable on the skin and it feels plusher overall. I use it with a Cardo Scala Gx for radio and the little recess for the speakers works well. It's quiet enough, as much as the Shoei. Only criticism would be the drop down visor which is not tinted enough but i get the feeling this is a problem faced by all manufacturers for legal reasons. Great, great lid for the price.

HJC have been designing and manufacturing high quality protective helmets since the early 1950s. In 1971 the factory turned all of its attention to motorcycle helmets and set itself the simple goal of providing high quality, comfortable, and reasonably priced helmets to motorcyclists throughout the world. This goal came a step nearer during the 1990s when HJC became America's top selling motorcycle helmet - a position it's held ever since. Today HJC helmets are available in every corner of the globe and are, quite simply, the world's biggest helmet brand, producing more motorcycle helmets than any other marque. The range now encompasses the full spectrum of helmet types, with the widest selection of graphics, materials, and price points.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • What is the difference between HJC R-PHA 11 HJC IS 17 ? Are they in stock,price? Can you install the pinlock for me?

    January 25, 2018

    These are two very different helmets. The R-PHA 11 is a high end helmet with a carbon fibre carbon and hybrid fibreglass shell, while the IS-17 is a lower specification helmet, with a polycarbonate shell. The R-PHA 11 has a five year warranty compared to the one year warranty for the IS-17. The stock availability and price are shown on the website. Unfortunately we are not able to fit a Pinlock insert for you, as the helmet would then be classed as used, and would not then be eligible for a return.
