Information and Details about the HJC IS-17 Genesis Helmet
made by HJC
Our Thoughts
Thanks to the designer form Troy Lee and a host of other improvements the new HJC line including the IS-17 are hands down better than the previous model. The new IS-17 was developed using the HJC in house wind tunnel to reduce lift and turbulence around the bottom of the helmet. When we road in the helmet is seemed to cut through the air very well and the noise level was minimal. ( Although, we always recommend ear plugs ). A great feature that had been almost universally adopted is the internal sun-shield / visor. The IS ( internal shield ) system on the IS-17 is smooth and comes down far enough to replace the need for sunglasses. The new faceshield / visor for the IS-17 HJC helmet is called the Accusight shield. It is a 3D design with optimal optical clarify and 98+ percent UV protection, anti-scratch coating and is pin-lock ready. ( just need to buy the hjc is-17 pinlock insert ). We like the easy to change system for the shield and the fact it now offers the anti-bacterial, moisture wicking supercool liner, which is made to accomodate glasses. The HJC is a DOT approved helmet and weighs in at just about 3 lbs + 7oz. So still a light helmet for having an internal shield. Down side is it does not vent as well as some really racy helmets, but still good enough for most conditions. Sizing is true to size. So use the chart and you should be good to go!

    Great Helmet for the Money - Frank   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: great price for the features, optional pin-lock
    Cons: [None]

    I would like to highly recommend paying a little extra and getting the pinlock insert. Visor does fog up a bit without it, so definitely get the pinlock. The drop down visor is ok. It does fog up a tiny bit when stopped, but when I'm moving and air is flowing it doesn't. Oh and don't bother buying the chin curtain for it. It is worthless Doesn't do anything. It is a little noisy at speeds of 55 mph, but if you wear earplugs like I started to its not a problem. I've worn it for up to 2 hours at a time and had absolutely no problem with comfort. I have an intermediate oval head shape. Matte black looks great and seems to be well made. You get a lot of great features for sub 200. After doing 100 miles in this helmet, I can say that I love it and don't have any huge complaints about it. First and foremost, its very comfortable.

    FG-17 Chrome Shield - Battlax 200   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Awesome Finish on silver mirrored replacement shield. Comp Acc was one of, if not the earliest to have it available for sale.
    Cons: [None]

    Perfect accent for any FG-17 helmet ...nice quality fit.

    Comfortable value - Mark- FZ6R   VA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Comfortable and light
    Cons: tends to fog up easily

    Very comfortable and light. Sun visor works very well. cold mornings the shield will fog up until moving. stop and go traffic means I have the shield partially open to compensate. Will get a pinlock visor to see if that helps. So far I'm happy with it though.

    Excellent value for the money - Scott in Ohio   OH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Solid latch, integrated pinlock system and visor, improved airflow management
    Cons: Minor Eyeglass channel works for my head and glasses, but might not fit everyone, and probably not with a balaclava

    In January 2014 I really studied the options for an upgrade to my HJC CL-16. I wanted a reasonably well-designed integrated sunshield, but didn't want to spend 500 for a helmet. The IS-17 fit the bill perfectly. Is it as good as a mid-level Bell or a top-of-the-line Arai No way, but it's not shabby at all for under 200, leaving me enough cash to buy armored, nylon overpants to protect my assets. We'll see how this helmet does over the coming year, but I'm impressed with the build quality and comfort so far.

    Price OK but disappointing performance - Dave   FL Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: Light weight, decent ventilation, internal shield
    Cons: Very noisy, leaks badly in the rain, logo peeling off

    I bought the IS-17 to replace an older FS-10, thinking it would be an upgrade. Although CompAcc and HJC replaced the helmet with a second one under warranty the same problems remain. Very noisy, even when wearing earplugs. In the rain water pours down the inside of the shield, affecting visibility and fogging the shield badly. On both helmets the HJC logo painted on the front started peeling off after a couple of hundred miles and looks just plain ratty. I have been an HJC fan for quite a while but the IS-17 seems to be poor quality and I would not recommend it.

    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.
