HJC CS-15 Plain - Matt Black
Customer Product Reviews
Spiderman just came home!
This helmet is incredible! I bought it mainly because of it's low price point and previous reviews, but I wasnt disappointed. I had been looking at AGV helmets but I do not regret buying this instead at all. Really sturdy helmet with plenty of cushioning. Sizing does come up a little tight around the cheeks (im a chubby fellow) but its not uncomfortable. More reassuring that it's going to stay on. My only negative to say about it is I ride a naked bike and high pitched wind noise is an issue above 60mph. Hopefully, easily rectified with a set of ear plugs.
Bought a red bike recently, and left it up to my 5yr old son to decide on a new lid... honest! I wanted Venom, he chose Spidey so here we are. I usually buy 'premium' helmets such as Arai, Shoei and currently Schuberth so I was a bit sceptical this 75-quid lid would be any good. How wrong I was! It fits better than any Arai or Shoei I've had, a little snug around the cheeks but no pressure points and no baggy bits either. The vents work well and, so far, no major fogging even without a pinlock fitted. The visor mech is really the only part of the helmet where its budget price is noticeable; it works but is quite notchy and clunky compared with expensive stuff. That said, it works and is proper 'quick release' and dead easy to change. I even like the design now a dark visor is on. Well done HJC, a really great lid at a great price, and my next 'posh' helmet will be HJC too as and when needed. I'm still waiting for the comment when I'm at the lights though- "Blimey, Spiderman's put a bit of weight on..."
Amazing helmet, comfortable as
Very comfortable perfect sizing could not have got a better helmet the pinlocks are easy to install as well very good system to unclip the visor the only one downside is its a bit loud for wind but that's just my experience.
Bought this for my wife - it'll be used only occasionally. I have an Arai and a Shoei helmet so know what quality £400 - £650 gets you. I was blown away by the quality: fit and finish of this budget helmet. My wife finds it very comfortable and it seems to fit perfectly for starters, which is the most important thing. The overall paint finish, visor mechanism, the visor itself (thick/solid and pinlock-ready) and feel of the lining are suggestive of a much more expensive product. Can't comment on the efficacy of the ventilation system yet. Yep, mucho impressed and the service from SBS impeccable as usual.
