HJC FG-ST Cinnati - Black / White
Customer Product Reviews
Feels a bit cheap
Going form an AGV K5 to this felt like a step down in quality. Vents on this are very noisy, just has a cheaper feel to it. Fit is fine, visor good, cant really fauly anything, but it lacks the luxury of a decent Shark or AGV. Not sure its worth the money to be honest.
Excellent service from SportBikeShop, the helmet arriving well packaged. Much lighter than my 6 year old Nitro and excellent safety rating. Fit was perfect and quality of build excellent. Easy to remove visor and clip in included pinlock insert. Only disappointment was that the helmet was originally advertised on the website as having 3yr warranty but only infact 1 year. SBS contacted and they amended the site. Kept the helmet as such a good fit and quality.
Fantastic All Round Helmet
Bought this as an upgrade from my old lid and I'm really impressed. The helmet is quiet, lightweight, very comfortable and looks amazing. As with all HJC helmets you will need to go a size up. It's worth noting that the helmet is listed as gloss but it's a matt finish. Very fast delivery as always from SBS.
I got this to replace a Shoei Qwest and it easily matches it in terms of dynamics, noise, field of vision, safety rating, weight and comfort. It also has better ventilation and of course the drop down visor, which is incredibly useful. The main visor is also solid and the detents are positive. It is perhaps not quite as plush as the Shoei and the vents are a little more fiddly, but these are minor quibbles. Overall it's a great lid and the price is excellent.
Great helmet and service from sportsbikeshop
This is now my fourth HJC helmt and third from Sportsbikeshop. Previously I've bought AGV and Bell. However I'm now a convert to HJC. Fit is excellent and quality is good. Bonus, the helmet is already recessed to fit intercom headsets and I've now purchased the interfone speakers made for this helmet. New to Sportsbikeshop, started using them a few years back. Their pricing is always very good but as importantly I can't fault them. One of a small number of companies that just do what they say.
Good value and quiet
I needed a helmet with a sun visor and as the helmet had a fibre glass shell it offered good value. I tried it out at a range of speeds and it is surprisingly quiet with no buffeting. The sun visor is easy to use and effective. For me the helmet is comfortable and has excellent ventilation. Just one small point, when you raise the main visor it is easy to inadvertently open the main vent as they are in close proximity. Overall an excellent product and with the backup from SBS, peace of mind.
Great light helmet
I've had many helmets ranging from £50 to £300 and this helmet so far is my favourite, it's comfortable, light weight, pin lock works amazing and the sun visor mechanism actually works (unlike my last one) has a d lock which is the safest (in my opinion) would definitely recommend.
Love this helmet
Had an older HJC, so I knew the size would fit me perfectly. This is a lovely helmet, oh it's amazing to have an anti-fog visor; that's my main reason for getting a new helmet and this one in particular. No more getting wet cos I have to have the visor open a bit to keep clear when riding at less than 40. The sun visor is pretty good for my sensitive eyes, but that can fog up and it pops down with a bit of a force which sometimes clips my nose. The venting is amazing, with the top vents open I feel a nice light breeze running across the top of my head which will be great in summer. Great delivery again from sportsbikeshop. All in all a brilliant helmet and well worth the price.
This is a truly outstanding helmet. SHARP 5* to begin with. Exceptional price and service from SBS. Simply BRILLIANT for those of us who wear glasses - best I've ever tried. DD ring closure. Pinlock included. Great ventilation. Sun visor works perfectly, even with glasses. Reasonably light, all-day comfortable. I don't think there's anything I don't like about this helmet. Two points of note. Firstly, The Kume Green is more of a high-viz yellow that I expected. To be honest I'm delighted about that because I wanted the Flou Yellow but it was out of stock in my size. Secondly, I think these are a touch larger than other helmet brands. I generally take a Large but need a Medium with this one. Again, not a problem but something to bear in mind. Overall I am delighted.
Optimal helmet, recommended purchase
Well built helmet that offers a 5-star safety level (sharp.dft.gov.uk), comfortable and well soundproofed, good ventilation inside and good aerodynamic behavior. Visor easy to remove and still a useful (2) visor darkened for sunny days, I liked that the visor had opening on the left side and was easier to handle, but it's a small detail! Helmet with a price ratio very difficult to match and a service provided by sportsbikeshop.co.uk impeccable, fast and flawless, what else is there to say ?! I am pleased and recommend the HJC FG-ST and surely sportsbikeshop.co.uk won a customer :-)
Bought this lid for my commute & very pleased. Quiet, well ventilated if needed, although when these are open, can hear a bit of slight wind noise, but nothing to put you off. Looks are good, visor smooth on opening & the anti fogging inner attachment is a godsend. Also the inner sun visor is a must, especially in the later months when the suns lower, thus avoiding any blinding situations.
After having a Arai for years went out for a ride and the side pod fell off when I lifted my visor, rubbish helmet. So I decided to try the HJC, what a difference, very comfortable, better fit, quieter, a good all round helmet and another great service from Sportsbikeshop.
After ordering the HJC-FG helmet the theoretical size fitting proved to be painfully small! This helmet was returned and exchanged for the next size up. All is now well, a good fit, comfortable and a well made product. Entirely as expected from Sportsbikeshop, the exchange from too small to good fit was carried out at lightening speed and I'm a happy bunny now !
