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.

Great fit and price

My head measures 58 cm around the widest part, so I ordered a medium in both the IS-17 and the FG-ST. Really, I wanted the FG-ST, but the tighter fit with the IS-17 felt more reassuring, The tinted visor is a bit gimmicky and needs to be slightly darker for sunny days, hopefully the mechanism holds up. Pinlock-like insert included in the box, which is a nice addition, easy to fit and works really well. Only had it a couple of weeks, so I can't really say much more.

Comfortable, sleek and great value for money

This helmet is very well made indeed. The features are excellent and the design sleek looking. Visor removal couldn't be easier, opening the visor up, press a slide latch on each side and off it pops. It also came with a Pinlock visor which is fitted with a similar ease. The visor itself is strong and has no flex, and latches into various positions with precision and ease. The helmet also has a sun visor which slides down easily with one finger from the top of the helmet and returned by pressing a button which then causes it to pop back up into the helmet out of the way. Again the mechanism with which this is done is well made and has a firm and positive actuation. The chin strap is a 'Double D' and feels secure in fitment. The helmet is also light and the internal padding exceptionally comfortable. Field of field is also very good. All in all this is exceptional value for money given its price plus the excellent quality with which it has been made. If and when I need another helmet I will certainly be buying another HJC.

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

  • 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.
