HJC IS-Max 2 - Gloss White
Customer Product Reviews
Good fit, nice looking
The helmets fits nicely, is nice aesthetically and comfortable. Good noise suppression at higher speeds, at least comparing to a 50€ helmet! About cons. In full face mode the visor may not hold at the highest position at high speeds. Also, my sunglasses don't fit too well. Overall, and considering 1 week of testing, the pros surpass largely the cons and so I think it was a good buy. I recommend.
Great quality and well vented
I purchased a new helmet as my caberg duke was 5 years old and I wanted to stay with a flip front. I've been impressed with this helmet especially the ventilation which you can actually feel cooling your head which I definitely didn't get with the caberg. Intercom was easy to fit and sun visor is great too. Excellent service from sportsbikeshop as ever.
Super Helmet with a hidden suprise
A comfortable and well constructed helmet. Everything works, the flip function is easily operated with one hand, the drop down sun-visor has two positions. Not fully tested yet but the venting seems to work fine and the pinlock insert is a welcome inclusion. I can get it on and off with minimum disruption to my specs. The surprise ? - My gloss black helmet, stop giggling at the back, sparkles in the sunlight.
Great value and functionality
I chose this as my first ever flip-up helmet - I already have a Rossi limited edition lid - so I wanted to choose something which was practical for daily commutes, weekend ride-outs and trips to town. I found it really easy to adapt to, the visor is brilliant for sunny weather and the ratchet chin strap is very quick to get used to. In all, this helmet ticks all the boxes, the fit is very snug but will give a little once I've worn it a few more times. It looks so stylish in matt black! The price was too good to be true, I couldn't quite believe that something this good could be so inexpensive - but it's perfect for what I want.
Love this, great fit, easy to use ratchet quick release chin strap, and to flip up compared to other helmets I have tried. Added Benefit of a drop down sun visor that retracts at the touch of a button. Very little wind noise and looks great!! Love it!
Bought this over New Year as a replacement for my AGV Compact. I followed the advice of other reviewers and bought Large (head measures c.58-59cm). Fit spot on, easy to install Scala Comms kit and helmet well made. I like the air flow system and noise not bad (wear ear plugs anyway). Pinlock ready, but needed to buy the insert separately. Delivery per promise - good job.
Be seen, be safe
With the nights drawing in I was conscious that my black helmet made it difficult for me to be seen by other road users. I had seen on the .gov website that Sharp (the organisation who test helmets for safety) had given this helmet five stars and at the price it was at SBS it was a no brainer to buy it. I have a medium sized helmet which is very snug (almost tight).The Pinlock is great for preventing the visor fogging up and the helmet has better ventilation than my former Airoh helmet. It is also a lot quieter so all in all I am really pleased with my purchase. SBS customer service was, as always, superb.
Fits well, lightweight too
I wasn't after a flip front helmet but I tried this one as well as traditional full face helmets at SBS. It's a really nice helmet good sun visor that goes into 3 positions, lightweight, worn it for 2 hour ride felt comfortable. Noise is not too bad but I do use ear plugs. I would buy another.
Room for improvement
Pro: - Shape - Comfortable padding - Graphics looks cool - Solid flip-up mechanism - Air vents Cons: - The sunvisor doesn't fully retract (since the first use I have to push it in otherwise stays around 1cm out which I find very annoying for a brand new helmet) - Noisy (at least coming from a full face AGV) - Air comes in even with the air vents closed PS: The visor is Pinlock ready but doesn't come with a Pinlock
Robust helmet looks good
I do like this helmet overall. It is comfortable and has a good flip locking mechanism. My only criticism is the sun visor (or sun film). When down the view through it is slightly distorted. It feels either too thick or maybe the convex shape of it distorts vision. My previous helmet had good vision through the sun visor so I am comparing against another version. Good delivery and best price on the web from Sportsbikeshop.
