    Awesone - Tommy M.   NJ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great fit Awesome paint
    Cons: None

    This is ny first HJC helmet and I love it It fits perfectly and I love the loud colors

    HJC CL-16 Machine helmet - HJC CL-16 Machine helmet   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Price is excellent, Snell & DOT approved, easy shield changes, OK venting
    Cons: Can be noisy you'll want to wear erplugs

    Hard to beat the HJC CL-16 -- Machine graphics or any other. You're getting a Snell & DOT approved full-face helmet for 70-85 less cost than an Arai or Shoei. The only drawbacks The venting is OK, but not fabulous and the helmet is fairly noisy good idea to wear earplugs. Not as noisy as my old Suomy, and that was 5x the price.

    Great looking hjc cl-16 helmet - cmanzano   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Look, fit and finish.
    Cons: Needs more vents

    I was looking for a great helmet in a hi-viz color that didn't look plain. The graphics on the CL-16 Machine helmet are not too busy and look great on the Hi-Viz color. The helmet looks awesome with the Green Face Shield as well. It is fairly light and very comfortable. It fits me well. My only complaint is that the top vent is not large enough for proper air flow which makes the helmet too warm in the summer but great for winter. For the price though, it is a great buy from a great helmet company. I would recommend it to everyone who is on a tight budget looking for a great helmet.

    The sizing information is provided by the manufacturer and does not guarantee a perfect fit. However, we are happy to assist you with any needed exchanges.

    Note: the RPHA-Max seems to run a little smaller due to the thick padding and smaller overall shell design. Most size exchanges have been to up a size. So if you are on the fence. We recommend thinking about going up a size to start. However, please keep in mind the padding will break in some and a helmet that is a little tight vs. too loose for safety.
