Customer Product Reviews
Really pleased with my great looking HJC IS17 helmet. Very good build quality, fit & vision at an equally good discounted price. It does produce some wind noise above 50mph (rare event on my scooter!) but ear plugs soon remedy that. The visor mechanism, ventilation system & internal sun visor all work very well plus it has the preferred double D ring closure system. Kat at the Leeds store was very helpful & knowledgeable, I'd never considered stuffing gloves into a helmet can reduce the lifespan due to contamination. Great service from Sportsbikeshop once more.
Fits well - I'm on the edge between M & L and the latter seems to be the way to go. Still a little tightness so hopefully won't loosen too much over time. Crystal clear vision once the pinlock is inserted (came in the box so self installed). Ventilation is good but it's a touch noisy. Not a bother for a commute but could be annoying on longer journeys.
Lovely bit of kit!
I bought this as I only had a flip top and ride through the winter months. This helmet is very comfortable, great ventilation and visibility. Plush inside, great finish outside. I bought this when on special offer and it definitely is fantastic value for money for £100! Highly recommended!
This is my second IS-17. The first one is still in excellent shape (3 years later). It's held up much better than my previous AGV helmets and it more comfortable and more practical. I bought another just to have a spare. Can't fault it at all. Excellent helmet and excellent price.
Comfortable, look great, excellent service
Looking at local retail outlets, I chose the helmet based on it's 5 star sharp rating and afforability. Having being a customer of Sportsbikeshop previously I knew the price would be much better, and to say I wasn't disappointed would be an understatement. Unbeatable. Easy access to loads of proper relevant reviews and the choice was made. Helmet is really well put together and fits my head perfectly. In terms of wind noise, it's not quiet by any stretch of the imagination, but no louder than any I have had previously. I found all the features easy to operate and the internal visor the perfect shade for riding - not too dark for low sun like some are. I returned the first helmet after noticing a couple of areas where the lacquer began to peel, but I haven't had any problems with the replacement whatsoever.
Love the Image of this product and it fits like a dream BUT had two problems : 1: seen some safety foam in the air vent 2: is a slight squeek when you walk coming from the four head but don't get me wrong for that price this helmet is dam good quality!, sunvisor is brilliant not too dark but not too light
Great service and price
Bought this to replace my previous HJC IS-17 so I knew the size and fit was going to be right. Now has double D-ring fixing (old one had the slide-in buckle), which I'm ok with. Anti fog insert not "Pinlock" anymore, and it misted slightly on its one and only use so far....hope it's a one- off due to the weird weather. very slightly
Value for Money
Use this helmet for kids/wife the feedback from them is positive. Solid construction, vent open/close mechanism seems sturdy. Internal sun visor a huge hit with kids - Great safety rating - Sizing may be a hair on small side, but thats just a comparison with other manufacturers. Value for money 10/10
