This helmet, being white, increases your visibility dramatically. Studies show that a white or hi-viz helmet is the most important piece of high-viz gear one can wear. The white is also cooler in the heat of summer.
A huge plus for me is that it is longer in the chin area than most other helmets. This puts more space between your chin and the chin bar. For me, it means that my lips are not up against the chin bar.
It comes with a breath deflector, wind curtain, locking visor, and an inner sun-shade visor which is actuated by the slider on top. The sun visor is a boon, and I can't imagine going without it now.
The one thing I wish HJC would do is put another position on the sun-visor that would allow it to come down 1/2 way, just under your line of sight.
A bonus of this helmet is that it has holes for intercoms under little insignias on the side, that are easily pried off. Also, the interior is easlily removable for installing an intercom, and there are two vent ports in the foam front liner that allow a microphone to be installes, totally out of the way, very easily. The one caveat on installing a mic in one of these ports is that you should tape over the port hole, and over the vent in front of the port as well, or you will get major wind noise...
I have actually tested one of these helmets in a crash, and it performed flawlessly. One thing to consider is that the visor has a lock on it.Read more ›
Anyway, I had tried on this lid that was one size larger at the local parts department and it was "loose." I measured my head to make sure of the size and used the HJC size chart to order the helmet. They were correct, it fits like your head is stuck in a vise for the first few rides. Then it starts to fit like a glove and feel like it's part of your head.
It does have less side and downward front view than the open helmets but your head doesn't get snapped to the side when you look, like with cheaper or open helmets. I found the shield was easy to open and close and it has a lock. The other helmet I have with the big shield lets the big shield snap shut pretty quickly if you're riding "slowly" with it up.
The sunglass feature is a plus for me as I often ride just before sundown and I don't have to wrestle with sunglasses. If it's a sunny day and you're taking the helmet off someplace and walking around you're going to want to take a pair of sunglasses with you. Note: Don't let anyone know, but those $5 3M safety sunglasses at Home Depot are the best things since sliced bread and you don't have to worry if you lose or break them (they are very strong, by the way). I just put a pair in my pocket and go.
Since I live in Florida I'm not sure about the ventilation in any of these helmets, it's just plain hot!Read more ›
Matte Black is actually Matt Black :)
plenty of air movement with just the chin vent open
plently of room in front of lips and mouth
dose not limit visibility
sunscreen is dropped by running your hand up the back center of the helmet and raising the little slider up. returns back to hiding position with a push of the release button (much easier then it sounds explained)
Antifog on the clear main visor works great, like seriously great. I have tried and unable to fog it up even trying to breath hot at it directly on a cold morning I could see my breath I give that an easy 10/10
dose not feel super confining, while giving me confidence that its very well protecting, it feels well built and thought out.
brand name stickers remove easy
reduces noise, yes I still hear a bit of air, and I can totally hear my exhaust (we all like to hear our bikes right?)it reduces the amount of noise more then you might expect, for me this is very good and something I wanted.
shield can be opened as desired for talking, or air, and closes very well when placed fully close no worries about it opening. there is a lock if you wish to lock it into a position but I leave it unlocked.
the sunscreen is not even close to being anti fog, and while not in motion it fogs up fairly easy.Read more ›
