Great well made helmet
16 January 2024 by Alastair B
Bought this as a replacement for my ageing HJC helmet. This is the more modern version of the one I had. It has a few handy upgrades like proper speaker pockets and the shell is a little bit more streamlined, you still get a pinlock included which is great and the sun visor lever at the bottom is better, my old one had it on top of the helmet. Comfortable and secure. This is not the latest version and is still a 22.05 standard but a great discount made it a brilliant buy. Ordered 2 different helmets and returned the other that I didn't want and the return was as easy and painless as ever with Sportsbikeshop. Thanks

My go-to helmet
01 August 2023 by Reg
This is the second one of these helmets that I've purchased. I have one which easily accommodated a head set and I also wanted one without a headset as a spare for possible use for a pillion. The noise levels are good and I've had no issues with steaming up in the winter months. The wide visor also helps with visibility when doing shoulder checks.
Solid purchase

Does the job for a good price
Good budget safety lid
15 June 2023 by Dan B
Comfortable, hi-vis, good padding. Only gripe is the internal visor controls are a bit stiff and tricky with gloves on, but otherwise a good lid.

Ordered online but swapped sizes in store at MK. Great service and very helpful staff. HJC make great helmets and are better value for money than many.
Top Helmet!
27 May 2023 by Craig T
Top top helmet! Comfortable and good quality, this helmet is everything I was hoping for. The only minor issue is noise when the top vents are open which on a long journey would become annoying, but that's the only thing stopping it from getting 5 stars!
Surprisingly good product
14 March 2023 by Pawel L
I was a bit skeptical about buying online, without trying it on ( especially after returning faulty LS2 Storm) ... I had a few helmets of HJC in my hands, and on my head and... the sizing is not so obvious. Usually I wear size M 58cm, this time I decide to took 59 .... and it was a bullseye. It was a little "tight" on the sides of the head, but it has started to settle down and I don't feel it as much anymore... I have the opportunity to compare it to the Frank Thomas helmet. The Frank Thomas is a bit more comfortable, but the HJC i70 is a bit lighter, the pinlock really does the job and what is very important to me, the HJC i70 is noticeably quieter. Surprisingly, during the first rides it whistled slightly in the side wind, but it is a matter of fitting the new helmet. Summing up, I am happy with the purchase.
Great Helmet.

The helmet is a safety device, I feel the safest colour is bright yellow, it stands out like a sore thumb.

The padding he super comfy, far more comfy than my previous AGV & Shark.

& It comes with a pinlock, everything I was after for £120.

Great value

Cheaper than the black version, good snug fit for my wife and the best part is the internal visor comes down and covers your whole face.
More of the same

I bought this to replace my IS-17 Helmet that I has served me well over the last 5 years.

The i70 seems as well built, comfortable (perhaps even more so) than it's predecessor. A great value every day helmet.
Great value for money!

Surprised with the quality of the helmet when it arrived, considering the price. Bought it on sale for my wife. Great fit, comfortable, it's got sunglasses and comes with pinlock. Wife couldn't be happier. And as always great service from SBS.
Whistle while you ride
24 May 2022 by Nicholas T
For the price it's good. Fits well and overall quality is good for the price point. However on first use there was a constant whilst coming from the helmet, which I discovered was produced by the fins at the top of the helmet. These needed bending slightly to reduce the noise and whilst still there it is now not intrusive.

Valued Helmet
19 January 2022 by Gnanamurthy S
It is simple and best for everyday use. The pinlock is very useful. The only problem is the shade glass keeps dropping down sometimes and there is no latch on the surface of the helmet to pull it back. I guess we can remove it if not using it. Other wise it is a good product.

Got this to replace my HJC IS17. Went for the white colour as was £50 cheaper then other colours. Although the picture makes it look a bit plane and boring it is a very nice colour when you see it in front of you. The Matt white gives it a very modern and stylish look and then you got the visibility of it also. Prefer the sun visor mechanism of this to my old one, it is on the left side by chin rather than on top. It also has less wind noise than the IS17. Nice chin guard, and comes with pin lock and insert. I replaced size like for like (medium) and this one is really quite tight compared to last one for the first few times you use it. Now it's been used several times it's fine. Very happy.
