Absolutely worth the price!
It fits snug as a bug, comes with a pin lock, the sunshade is brilliant, airflow system is great. I had to replace my i70 after I got hit. The only thing I'm getting used to is to access the sun shade, its a bit of a bugger as its on the top of the lid. Otherwise, it looks stunning too and as always with premium helmets, you get what you pay for.
Great value for money. Very comfortable. 5 star Sharp. Really good ventilation system, internal sun visor and comes with pinlock. It has my favourite double D closure system. It produces some noise above 70mph, yet not excessive.Overall great helmet. A superb service from Sportbikeshop.
Great value helmet but......
First things first, Great value helmet, I loved the color and graphics. It doesn't show fingerprints even though its very glossy. Comfortable to wear and padding is good. Internal sun visor is good. Sharp 5star rating on a helmet that is very economical to buy. Forgot to mention comes with pinlock inset. I bought this for pillion passenger and its been very well recieved by the pillion. There is some noise with out earplus but using ear plugs makes tales away noise . Delivery was fast and price was reasonable. Would buy from this website sportsbikeshop anymore.
Great comfortable helmet for the money
For the money (I paid 120 plus 5 euros for shopping) it is an amazing value for money item. Following are the pros and cons. Pros 1. Light weight 2. Pinlock ready and pinlock wisor comes in the box 3. Internal sun visor 4. Double d ring 5. True to size fit 6. Noise isolation is very good when used with a earplug. 7. Sharp 5 star rating for crash test Cons 1. Visor sometimes collect mist but only in the right and left corner closet to the visor connection to helmet 2. When using internal sun visor I found bit more noise but it could be just my helmet. 3. Double d ring can be a bit hassle to put to and take off with gloves 4. Ventilation is poor. I am really happy that I decided to purchase for sportbikeshop. Delivery was very quick 1-2 days to republic of Ireland and only cost 5 euros. I haven't had any issues so far. The important thing is I will buy from these guys again and I recommend any potential buyers to buy with confidence.
Good looking helmet
The helmet is well made. Although I ordered the correct size for my head when it arrived it was too tight a fit around the chin area. No problem sending it back to Sportsbikeshop and the next size helmet was delivered in a couple of days. Only problem with the helmet, there is a bit of wind noise which I was hoping buying this helmet would have been reduced from my previous helmet.
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
