Video Reviews
Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories and welcome to our video review of the HJC FG-17 helmet. Now this is a new full face helmet from HJC that uses their advanced fiber glass shell. This is a mid lined to upper level helmet for HJC, one step down from the RPHA-10. They have brought some design influences from the RPHA-10 which is their top of the line road race helmet. This helmet retails around the 200 dollar mark depending on the solid or graphic that you pick. The one I have in front of me is actually the Jorge Lorenzo replica helmet. Its going to be a little more expensive in the price range but still a very good value for a fiberglass shell helmet. I will give you a 360 view of this helmet because of the graphic. We will throw this up on the scale to see how much it weighs and it is 3.60 lbs. If your not aware some helmet graphics actually add a little bit of weight to the helmet unlike the solids which will be the lightest weight. Your right around that 3.5 lbs mark so fairly light weight it is not a super super light weight helmet but it is also not a very heavy helmet. Few different key things to point out about design right off the bat, first they have brought over a similar face shield to the RPHA-10. Its not the exact same face shield but it uses the center locking mechanism. I personally been riding in a RPHA-10 for a while and it has this feature. It takes a little bit of getting used to but essentially when it clicks into place it locks and really pulls the face shield tight against the gasket. It gives you a really good seal so your not getting any extra wind noise or water that can run down inside the shield. It also helps to lock the shield on if you are on the track or doing higher speed runs or head checks that wind is not going to suck it ope or move your face shield. Another thing that is nice is it is right in the center of the face shield so you can open it up with either hand. Give it a press and it unlocks with this little latch. We will talk about the base plat mechanism real quick, this is called their rapid fire 2. This is a very easy base plate mechanism to operate, there is a spring lever on the side like a trigger and you pull that back and you can see the shield pops right off. As you can see on the inside of the face shield you see a recess are around the shield, and that is actually for the pinlock max vision shield. It is a flexible pane that you install on the inside of the shield and what it does is create a dual pane lens to help stop fogging. The max vision actually extends all the way to the top and bottom along with the sides of the face shield so that way it is not in your peripheral vision. The reason it has the recess in the face shield is so that way it can actually sit in the shield and will not get in the way of the gasket when you are lifting it up. You have an internal breathe deflector that is included as well. It nice and soft and that will help keep your breathe up off the face shield and it will help reduce fog. You have a nice chin bar vent, and also their advanced channeling ventilation system. So you have 2 intake scoops at the upper portion of the helmet that operate with just these simple rocker switches. So very easy to operate with gloves on and they are going to function just like ram air scoops so while your riding air is going to be forced down inside the helmet flow through the back and then if you spin it in it has a really nice looking integrated spoiler on the back of this helmet. You also have some exhaust vents integrated in that as well. That is going to help draw that warm air right out the back of the helmet. Once we pull the insides out you will actually see how the air channels throughout the inside of the helmet. Speaking of the interior this has what HJC calls their silvercool lining, this is a anti-bacterial material and moisture wicking and does a good job keeping you comfortable. You will see the opening on this helmet is fairly snug which is a good thing that is going to help give you a really good seal around the base of the helmet and around the cheeks and neck. Standard D-ring closure with a nice little HJC pull tab. You can fully remove the interior as well so if you need to freshen the helmet up its 3 little snaps and the cheek pad comes right out. You can see it is a nice contoured cheek pad as is familiar with most HJC helmets. I will pull out the entire interior so you can take a look here, The crown liner has just a couple snaps at the back and the tab that runs around the front. You will see it is very open and they use several different density's of foam to keep it comfortable and its open so that air can flow throughout the helmet. If I open this up you can see those intake holes at the top from the air scoops that we pointed out on the front of the helmet and there is 3 holes at the back of the helmet for those exit vents. Also there are some channels for the air flow through the helmet towards the back. Cheek pads are low profile in the ear area, there are no actual built in recesses for the speakers, most communication systems have fairly low profile speakers to begin with and it shouldnt be an issue but if your looking for a helmet that has specific spots for the speakers this one does not have that. This helmet is positioned more for the sport guy or street guy it does not have a drop down internal sun visor but it is a snell 2010 approved helmet. If your looking for a helmet you can take to the race track or do some track days and you need that snell certified or you feel more comfortable with a helmet that has passed those snell standards then this is a great helmet for you guys. For a price point for around 200 bucks you can jump on our website to view our current pricing is on it. I will go ahead and reinstall the shield for you its very easy and straight forward there is a tab on back and a pin on the front and you simple line those up and give it a press and it will lock in.

    NICE - marco   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: light weight, air flow, comfort
    Cons: scratches easily,

    I have owned several helmets over the years for racing an open cockpit car. I used an older one when I first got my new bike. The first ride with my FG-17 was a whole new level of comfort. Less wind noise, less lift when you turn your head at speed and GREAT air flow inside the helmet for comfort and anti fogging. I would and will buy another one for my wife to ride with me. They fit snug at first but loosen up over time.

    Force Helmet - Belkerx3   MO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Beautiful helmet
    Cons: Fits very tight

    I waited nearly 3 months to receive my new Force helmet. This is a very nice helmet. Fit and finish is very good. I had some trouble fitting my J&M speakers into the shallow speaker pockets. I typically wear an XL HJC helmet. This one is so tight I thought I got the wrong size. I cannot hardly fit my sunglasses due to the tightness. Hopefully it will break in soon and loosen up. It is very tight I do love the high viz color. I would buy another one, it's that good.


    Below are more HJC Reviews from our online customers.
    Hopefully they can help you find the right item and make the best buying decision.

    great helmet - kyledukes   PA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: lightweight, comfortable, ventilation
    Cons: none.

    Got this as my first helmet. I went to a few stores and tried on helmets so I already knew my size. This helmet feels much better than its Competitor helmets, icon and scorpion. I tried alot helmets on. The anti fog feature is nice and the ventilation is cool.

    Nice Helmet - MJK   CO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Light, ventilated, excellent value on closeout
    Cons: [None]

    I have no complaints. It is nice to have a light helmet and one that exceeds minimum safety standards. Ventilation is better than average and helmet mates well with my goggles. Fit is perfect for me in medium which matches with fit chart. I'd highly recommend this helmet.

    Light weight - Slonol   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Light weight
    Cons: Tight fit on the side of forehead

    To Replace 10 year old Arai RX7, and this is lighter and as aerodynamic as the more expensive helmet. Snell approved. I have a very round head and The HJC is more oval shape than I like. I hope it's broken in more as I ride with it more.

    Velo rider - Jim A., Tucson, AZ   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit matches size. Face shield comes down lower. Strap long enough for my 3 chins
    Cons: Side protection a little skimpy.

    Over all, very good. I especially like the longer face shield. Less buffeting.

    Helmet - Brett McGinnis   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great visibility, not to heavy and looks great
    Cons: None so far

    This is the first helmet I've ever bought. I was very pleased with the price and how quickly I received it.


    This review is for HJC RPHA-X Tempest Helmets
    HJC RPHA X - Ride Michigan   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: lightweight, comfortable, good ventilation,
    Cons: none

    I used to race off-road and have owned several top of the line helmets. I've been out of dirt biking for several years and just got back in to it this year. I purchased the RPHA X Tempest, wore it during an enduro and kinda forgot about the helmet. I guess you could say it is comfortable if you don't think about it during your ride. The helmet fits well, is lightweight, goggles fit nicely, ventilation is good, cant't beat the price, no complaints Thankfully, haven't tested the crashworthiness of it....yet

    Great helmet - Mikestib1   VA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Shield is much better than on my more expensive Bell Pit Boss
    Cons: Seems a little small

    Great comfort and value May get another one for my wife. Probably an XL as the LG is just a little small. Shield extends so well I don't need to fool with goggles.


    This review is for HJC RPHA-10 Cage Helmets
    HJC RPHA-10 - Rich L.   MN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Light, quiet, comfortable, noticeable airflow.
    Cons: Shield whistle when fully open, could use stronger detents for the shield.

    As mentioned in other reviews, this helmet does tend to run a little on the small side. I normally wear a XL and according to HJC's sizing chart for THIS helmet, there is a separate chart for the RPHA series I would need a 2XL to fit my melon. Sure enough, the 2XL fits me like every other XL I've owned. It's a racing inspired helmet, it's supposed to be snug, but if you order the size you normally wear, it will likely be uncomfortably tight. With that out of the way, it's a great helmet and I love it. With the shield down and latched it is the smoothest, quietest helmet I've had. I wear glasses and I typically ride with the shield cracked open slightly or fully upright. In this position I get a mildly annoying wind whistle noticeable with earplugs in and the shield won't stay up and will drop once roadwind speed is high enough. Slightly stronger detents for the screen would be helpful here. The center latch is great easy access with either thumb. Glassessunglasses access is good, no interference from temple padding.So far I've only ridden with it in the heat of summer and the airflow is great. You can feel it pulling heat off the top of your head. I love the CAGE graphic sporty looking without being overly busy or gaudy. Paint quality appears near flawless and it looks to have a decent clearcoat over everything. It should hold up well.

    Really good helmet for the money - Frank   NJ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Ventilation, optics.fit
    Cons: None

    I have been riding for about 25 years and owned several helmets in that time. I guess you can say I'm cheap I don't like to spend more than 120 for a helmet I'm going to wear for only 2-3 years. This helmet is better than most that I have paid 110 - 120.It's as quit as some helmets but quieter than most I have had, I can see clear without distortion, the fit is good not tight not loose , Here in Jersey it can get uncomfortably humid this helmet keeps the air flowing. I asume a 200 and more helmet would work better but but how much better

    Great Product - Kevin   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes

    quality, quiet - larry   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: great fit, quality and reasonably quiet
    Cons: not quiet enough

    fabulous snug fit makes the RPHA 10 the best HJC helmet yet and the best fitting helmet I have ever worn which includes owning the A brand and the S brand. While wind noise is reduced, it is still not eliminated. For the money, there may be nothing better,

    Pros: great quality, well padded, comfortable, easy function of slide down eyeshade.

    well made good quality nice looking affordable helmet with the slide down smoke colored shade. shade is deep enough so that you can wear sunglasses while it is down and light enough so that it can be used after dark.

    A Must Have - CBR 1000RR-OKC,OK   OK Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Very Light Weight, Great Ventilation,True Soft Fit,Perfect Vision Capability,No Shimmy at High Speeds
    Cons: None

    This is a true must have for your collection if you can only buy one helmet, buy this one. If your worried about size I'm 23 right above brow line and a Large fit me perfect anything above 23 14 you better move up to a XL, one other thing the manufacturer size specs I believe are a little more accurate so check HJC before buying it from here HJC has really stepped up to the big leagues with the RPHA-10 perfect for the track or taking it on a road trip, 5 stars in each category CR-OKC

    Great helmet for the price. - Christian   NJ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Cost, removable liner for cleaning sweat, and wide field of view.
    Cons: Needs aftermarket quick disconnect buckle for easy removal.

    I've had HJC helmets before for my street bikes. They are very well made and look stylish. Size and fit are right on with their sizing chart. I would buy another one if anything happened to this one. I would also recommend this to a friend.

    This review is for HJC FG-17 X-Fuera Lorenzo Helmet
    Impressed - Sal   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Cool graphics, quality interior fabrics, well fitted, really quite, clear visibility seeing through the shield
    Cons: Nothing really

    Wow, I am really satisfied with this products. The exterior of the helmet appears amazing. The graphics are very impressive and people are always giving me a thumbs up or commenting on my helmet when I'm a red light. When I am wearing HJC FG-17 special edition helmet, its feels like none of the three paste helmets I owned were comparable with the HJC helmet. When wearing it, the fabric and cushion quality of the inerior mooching with my face feels high quality and tight, making me feel well secure. In result, the helmet is not too tight on your face, but just well fitted. In result the wind noise is low. If I had rate it 1 out of 10. I would give it a 4. Really, I love, love the wind shield. Why It never fogs up or gets much stain on it, giving me the best view of the road. Overall, I really like this helmet. It makes me feel so secure unlike my other three hundred dollar helmets that I owened, maybe due to the high quality it is made from. They have done a great job.

    This review is for HJC RPHA-10 Evoke Helmets
    HJC RPHA-10 Evoke Helmet - Rich B   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: well constructed helmet comfortable helmet looks outstanding comes with the pinlock system
    Cons: none that I can think of

    Let me start off by saying this is one comfortable helmet. I appreciate the fact that the helmet comes with the pin lock system which costs 26.99 if purchased separately. The graphics on this lid are top notch. I was concerned about the visor and the locking system. After a few times of locking down the shield while driving solved any issues I could have had. You can lock the latch with one hand with gloves on. To completely remove the shield is a breeze also. I like the fact that I can remove most of the padding inside the helmet for cleaning. You simply drop them in the washing machine and let them air dry before reinstalling them. The helmet is Snell and DOT approved which means a lot to me. If there was a shortfall I would say say it is in the ventilation system. I live in Florida and of course it gets hot in the summer. There seems to be no big difference if I open the two top vents all the way as opposed to a lower setting.

    HJC CL-16 - Juan   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Everything about this helmet is good, it's my third HJC Helmet and I love it.
    Cons: Nothing

    Everything about this helmet is good, it's my third HJC Helmet and I love it. I also ordered the chin curtain and nose piece, after trying to install the chin curtain I read the owner manual and realize you should not. So don't order it, will be a waste of time. Also the nose piece worked nice at first , but after my second ride I turned my head and had a big gust of wind get past the nose piece and had to close my eyes. So again don't order the nose piece, I took it off and noticed the helmet works great with out it. The helmet itself is great, the picture does not do it justice. Looks 10 times better than the picture.

    Great HElmet for the price - Paolo   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Properly sized, pin lock included, cool design
    Cons: not so good ventilation

    I bought this helmet for my wife and daughter - both size S. They have been wearing it a few times and from what I hear it is comfortable, fairly quite and cool to wear. The poor ventilation seems to be the only downside but the pin lock included sorts the fogging at least.Competition Accessories again provided top services and also mailed me some stickers for the kids. thank you guys

    Great Helmet - Bret   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Very Light, well ventilated and comfortable
    Cons: Sizing if you are on the edge

    This is a very nice helmet especially for the money. It is as comfortable as my Aria and so far seems as well put together. I am on the lower end of an xl from their sizing chart but is seems like it may end up a little to big after it packs out. Overall though my next helmet will be another one of these just maybe in a large.

    Pros: Light weight and comfortable
    Cons: [None]

    I haven't had much of a chance to wear this helmet as it is winter. However, the helmet fits as my previous HJC helmets, so no surprises there. It is significantly lighter than my previous HJC helmets. CompAcc got it to my door in a timely manner.

    Great helmet for a first time buyer - Michael Walter   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Comfortable, fully removable liner, well priced
    Cons: Wind from under the helmet is the greatest source of airflow.

    I got my CL-16 from a local dealer and am very pleased with this helmet for the price. It does have issues with air coming in the bottom but having the pinlock visor keeps from having it fog up. I would recommend this helmet as a great entry level helmet as it is both DOT and SNELL approved.

    Great deal at close out price - Brian   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Scratch resistant face-shields that are replaceable, generous padding, good value
    Cons: Matte black looks very easy to scratch, HJC logo is on when matte is not supposed to have

    I have to agree with the previous review that the chin strap should be longer and I wouldn't say I have a thick neck. I'll use my new helmet for the first time tomorrow and will update after that experience. I can say that buying from Competition Accessories was a great experience. Product was shown not in stock and still delivered in less than a week. Will purchase again from them for sure.

    CL-16 Fierce Green Helmet - Chef Luca   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fierce Helmet, Well Constructed, Easy Shield Removal & Installation
    Cons: Some Fogging During Idle, Seems Tight on Ears at Times

    I am a first-time rider and an HJC helmet was recommended by a fellow rider. I liked the graphic, easy onoff of the shield, price, removalcleaning of padding and as the wife would say that's a fierce looking helmet I feel very safe and am enjoying my purchase-I have worn helmet 4 times, may have to get used to it not ever riding before and the ritual of wearing a helmet.

    CL-16 Shock - Don Z.   NV Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Looks great. Good air flow. Initial snug fit, but not bad. Should loosen up.
    Cons: Extremely noisy

    Just got this helmet. Upgraded from a CL-14 that I've had for 5-6 years. Visor changes are a snap - 10 seconds. My big complaint is the noise. First tried it without ear plugs. Sounds like a freight train going through a tunnel. Just brutal. Then tried it with plugs. Somewhat better, but stll to loud. My old CL-14 is more quiet without plugs as the Shock is with plugs. If you can, try one out before you lay down your green. Disappointed to say the least.

    Love the RPHA-10 helmet - see all the Pros. I usually wear top-of-the-line ARAI, but heard about this helmet, tried it on, and I was sold But, it should say Red, White, and Blue-ish Black. The Blue is not bright like the picture, but a deep and dark blue-ish black. I was extremely disappointed when I took the helmet out of the bag and will be taking it back. P.S. there is an R at the forehead, not HJC I liked this. I would recommend the HJC RPHA-10, but not the Zappy color.

    Beautiful Helmet - Big-D   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Color Scheme is awesome, extremely light weight, very comfortable, allows for perfect fit and visability
    Cons: Sizes run Small

    I first purchased this helmet in a Large. I have several other helmets in various brands and they are all in Large and fit very nicely. However, this helmet in a Large was way too tight, so much so I bought another in a X-Large. Now it fits perfect so I can wear this helmet for really long period with no pain or discomfort from it being too tight. And it is not too big either, the fit is perfect.I would have rated this helmet a 5-Star except because I had worn the first helmet in Large, I was not able to return it and had to purchase a second in XL. Ultimately costing me twice as much. However, I like this helmet so much, it was worth it to me to make the double purchase. The other helmet in Large I gave it to a very good friend that it fit just right.The construction of this helmet meets or exceeds the much higher priced helmets in the 600 price range

    Beautiful Helmet - Big-D   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Super Light Weight, Great Graphics, Superb Construction, Comfortable once on
    Cons: Size runs a little small, really right putting over head.

    Although my helmet size has always run border line between a Large & Extra-Large, it seems every helmet I have ever bought, the large has always fit just right the way a helmet should fit, while I have bought two helmets in Extra-Large only to have them move around too much, being told they were too big for me.After receiving this HJC RPHA-X Factor helmet in Large, I couldn't wait to slip it on. When first putting it on, it almost wouldn't go over my head. Realizing its new and may need to adjust to my head shape, I forced it over my head. Once on, it fit snug, but comfortable. It doesn't feel overly tight, nor do I think it will make my head sore. The only problem at this point is the initial fitting over my head. It seems the opening is really tight, almost as though it has the opening on a Medium and the shell is a large.I will try it for several rides and see how it feels once broke in. I love the helmet. It is one of the finest looking helmets I've ever owned and I have 11 helmets from several manufacturers.

    Good Helmet - sono   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Price, Weight, Graphics
    Cons: Fit, Quality, Comfort

    I have a very round head and thought that this helmet would work. Well, it does to a degree, but it squashes my cheeks like my grandma used to. The channel in the inside padding that is supposed to work for sunglasses is entirely in the wrong place... making it impossible for me to use them. My nose can use them tho. The quality of materials seems a bit cheap, but the helmet is cheap, so I can't complain too much. Ventilation isn't the greatest and I cannot believe that I had to spend an additional 7 for a chin vent. Please just include it for a couple more . Overall, good helmet, but not going to be my daily - more like backup or passenger.

    Andy from Tennessee  
    It IS a half helmet with inherent and expected noise, but unbearable at highway speeds for any distance. This is the worst I've experienced in over 35 years of riding. Got a pair of the helmets last month just prior to a trip to Key West from Tennessee. My spin on the problem is that the ear flap/chin strap attachment point is too far lateral, attaching at the shell instead of nearer to the ear, creating a 3/4 inch gap between the ear flap and the ear. This causes a turbulence that is unbearable even with ear plugs. HJC needs to move the attachment point inboard or add some padding. As much as I like other features, I won't be wearing this helmet except to putt-putt around locally at lower speeds. Could not exchange since I had worn it on the Key West trip!

    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.
