My 2nd HJC IS-17

Fit is down to individual heads so I won't talk about that. This is just a great value helmet with a nice finish and feel. The badge on the top could mean a far more expensive lid so you can enjoy a inexpensive without the badge. My second IS-17 and I'd recommend it.

Decent enough

This is my commuting helmet. I have a Shoei NXR for fun. The IS-17 feels well made, and full of features. Good ventilation too. Things I don't like are the blue-ish lining round the visor bit, and the buckle feels like it can strangle you sometimes. All in all, it's great for the money.

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.
