HJC IS-17 Plain - Pearl White
Customer Product Reviews
Great helmet, love the drop down visor and pinlock included. Delivery was quick and helmet was well packaged. I bought this at a well discounted price, so really pleased. Helmet is comfy and performs well at speed, the visor can be locked shut and sun visor is easy to operate. Wind noise is no different to any other helmet I have owned and fairly quiet with good ear plugs. Great service from 'Sportsbikeshop' well recommended and will use again. Very pleased, thanks guys.
The helmet arrived without the Pinlock visor and somebody else's hair inside the helmet. The helmet itself is awful and cheap with extreme noise and wind coming inside the helmet, a difficult double D system, not recommended and definitely not worth paying the price for it
Good first helmet
First Glance: What else do you need. It came with a Pinlock visor insert which was an easy enough fit. The visor came off with ease so it wasn't a struggle as some can be. Aesthetically pleasing to look at too. It has an integrated sun visor, which is so handy and its probably the reason why I'm giving it a 5. Usage: I normally use the helmet with the visor up and the sun visor down, however if you have a big nose the sun visor might scrap against it as it has done with mine. but just a re-positioning of the helmet sorts that out so not a big deal. Airflow: There is a lot of air flow in this helmet, which would be good in the summer, however I've used this helmet in 5 degree(C) weather and it does get a bit cold even with the vents off. Overall: This is an outstanding first helmet, with a few niggles that are easily overlooked. If you're wondering whether to get this one or another then get this and you won't regret it for sure.
I have had a few helmets in the past, but after using this one I realized that I have been wasting my money on other products, comes with Pinlock visor which transforms the views and prevent condensation build up and the wind noise is near none existent, all in all a great product.
I was looking for a premium helmet with a realistic price tag. This ticks all the boxes. Extremely light and comfortable. It has a very good safety rating. Looks beautiful and the sun visor is really helpful and much better than wearing sunglasses. Very happy with this product and very happy with the website Sportsbikeshop. Price and delivery were brilliant. Highly recommend.
Comfortable & well made
I have replaced my Arai with this HJC IS-17 which cost around half the price. The HJC is a match in all respects - comfort, light weight, build quality and features like ventilation, Pinlock and the washable lining. So I'm left asking myself why I should spend so much on an Arai again? Great helmets but way overpriced. Well done HJC!
Best helmet I've had yet
Excellent helmet. Was looking for a new helmet and to upgrade a little from my MT SV Blade helmet. Really comfy when wearing it and has plenty of space to mount a Drift Camera and mic, also a full Sena headset, speakers mic and battery.
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.
Good ventilation so hasn't misted. I particularly like the visor clipping mechanism and lifting format which ensures it is either fully locked, or locked in the various opening positions. Agree with the chin strap comment but to be fair, the D-ring does a good job.
