HJC IS-17 Arcus - Black / White

Great lid

Great fit, love the paint job, which looks like a much more expensive helmet. Pin lock included in the price unlike some other makes. Double DRing closure which I feel is more reliable than the seat belt type and for just over one hundred notes a bit of a bargain in my book. Love it.

Quality helmet once again

This is my second HCJ helmet and I really can't fault it, bought additional tinted pinlock insert to keep it road legal and looks even better, really comfortable and prompt delivery as always.

Great Lid with a 5 star SHARP rating.

This is my second IS17,I use it daily so needed something that wasn't going to break the bank in a spill & Is good quality. This ticks those boxes. This is a 5 star rating on the SHARP system, which is paramount to me.It comes out a lot higher than a lot more expensive ones. Quality is good, fit is always spot on never changes. The inner pads are removable for cleaning, visor quick release is a doddle, coming complete with HJC own pinlock, which is pretty damn good compared to others I've used in the past. Internal sun visor is a must these days and with two settings.I think this is the only negative, the lever is on top, so you can get it confused with the vent. Also, as a mate pointed out, it looks like your warning bikers of Mr.Plod. Better on the side in my opinion. It does seem quiet, but then I have plugs in all the time. No problem with misting up. Easy to clean as I got the glossy finish. For a lid to be good at this price says a lot. It's not too light, but I never notice as I say I bike every day so I'm used to it. Great protector for your noggin at a good price.

Superb service and the helmet is stunning. Very fast delivery , knowing that I could send it back for any reason was a big thing that swayed me to buy from Sportsbikeshop, very glad I did. From now on will do all my business with them.

IS-17 first impressions

I've gone with HJC after purchasing the original RPHA 10 in 2012. I was always a Shoei man but after seeing the quality and fit of the HJC I was sold on it. Six years on I've gone for the IS-17 because it's a 5 star rating, has an integral sun visor and it's an absolute bargain. After two weeks use I'm not disappointed. The main downside over the RPHA 10 is the weight and the lining feels a bit cheaper but given the price compared to the RPHA 11 it's a good quality helmet and was an absolute bargain.

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.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • Hi, please could you advise if this helmet the HJC IS 17 Arcus Black/white has speakers pockets both sides and good sound proofing? Thanks

    January 18, 2018

    The IS-17 does not have speaker pockets/cut outs, bit slim speakers should fit behind the lining. Helmet noise is subjective and depends on how noisy your last helmet was, but most owners are happy with the IS-17.
