Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories. I'm here to talk to you today about HJC's new Symax 3 modular helmet. Now the Symax 3 is the replacement for the Symax 2 . We have one of those up here. Now This is one of HJC's Premium modular helmets. The reason that it was set apart from their other modular helmets is because it uses a fiberglass shell , and that's not changing in the Symax 3. It uses an advanced fiberglass spectra deposit weaved shell thorough the helmet , the chin bar is poly carbonate to keep the weight down. The rest of the helmet is going to be that fiberglass shell. The fiberglass is able to be made to be thinner a little bit lighter and is definitely going to be stiffer then the poly carbonate variety of modular helmets from HJC. Real quick were going to take a look at the differences between the Symax 2 and the Symax 3. A couple main differences , biggest thing that i noticed right off the bat is the amount of ventilation you get. The old Symax2 you had a chin bar vent. Same thing here except its going to open a little bit differently , its going to direct air up onto the face shield. But where you really start to see a difference is the upper portion you see the air vents you see on the Symax2 has just two small holes in the front that's going to bring air inside the helmet. With the Symax 3 your actually getting two ram air scoops. They are still closeable with a slider switch , but its just going to draw a lot more air into the helmet. You spin it around and look at the back of the helmets you'll see that there's even more upgrades here. You actually have a built in rear wing on the Symax 3 vs. the Symax 2 where you just have that round basic shape . Symax 2 just has these two exhaust vents at the back of the helmet here and that was it. The Symax 3 your actually going to have exhaust vents coming out from underneath this spoiler here and then have a couple stacked vents at the base of the helmet as well, to allow that warm air to escape. Getting hot air out of a helmet is the best way to cool a helmet .As air passes over a helmet its going to create an area of low pressure and its going to draw warm air right out side, right out of the helmet. Now another thing they've improved (and well show you how this works in just a second) there's an internal sun-shield visor and its definitely one of the popular features about this helmet. With the Symax 2 it was the same type of system you basically slide it forward and that deploys the face shield, But when you release the face shield its just a real fast spring loaded motion.What they've done with the Symax 3 is actually dampened it. So its the same type of mechanism so when you release it , its dampened so its not a jarring loud sound.Some other differences if you look at the side here the profile , they've really cleaned up the area where the chin bar attaches to the helmet itself . If you take a look at it from the top down then you can actually see that its alot cleaner, so its probably going to be a lot quieter. Its probably going to flow threw the air alot better. So let me move the Symax 2 out of the way here, and lets start looking at the insides. One thing you might notice here is there are actually pin-lock posts built onto the shield here . This comes pin-lock ready so you can install a pin-lock insert .The pin lock basically goes into the inside of the shield and it creates a duel pane effect, it basically eliminates any fog. This is a very good system. This is the HJ17 shield so it is the same shield that is used on alot of other HJC helmets which means you have a huge selection of different tints and mirror shields to go on the Symax 3. Like we mentioned earlier there is an internal sun-visor. So if you slide that forward you actually have that internal visor. So adjustments on the fly very very convenient . If you happen to run under a tunnel or under some tree cover you can always quickly release it and raise it up out of the way. The chin bar itself is just a simple single button mechanism basically you pull forward on this piece here and that's going to release the chin bar.Its going to open up very nicely and smoothly. The mechanism is very nice , a strong detente up at the top so its going to be held up for you. If you take a look here you can actually see the metal to metal latch that is used to secure the chin bar. When you close this you get a good secure lock with closure. Now take a quick good look inside this helmet. The Symax3 uses a silver cool liner which is HJC's moisture lining,Its going to manage moisture really well. Your going to see the cheek pads come out really easily. This material is very soft and comfortable on the skin , its going to draw moisture on the face and keep you comfortable. You'll see that they leave the areas around your ear very thin, and the reason for that is that you can install speakers. You'll see that there's a small recess built into the helmet there for a speaker so you can easily install that . Another thing that i didn't mention is and this is another huge upgrade from the Symax 2 is they actually make this helmet Bluetooth ready.So the chatterbox xb2ih will clip right in here, basically if you pop that little panel off you'll have a little area that will just click in . The chatter box its going to integrate perfectly with this helmet, your not going to have to mount it up with a clamp or anything everything will click right into that spot. Everything has a built in channel for wiring for the speakers so its going to be a very clean instillation and it integrates with the helmet nicely. Were going to get the rest of the lining out here. For the crown liner its basically just two snaps at the back and a few little snaps at the front of the crown and that's going to come out. You'll see that they build it with alot of mesh material and other openings for that ventilation to actually get threw to your head so it keeps you very comfortable. If you look here on the inside you'll see how well they did with the air channels. You actually have lots of air passages for that air to circulate throughout the helmet , so you get cool air in that cools your head and warm air gets drawn out the back. So they have really really revamped the ventilation system on this helmets and i think its going to be definitely a very well received by the modular helmet crowd. So that is the Symax 3 from HJC.

    Be Seen Everywhere - SPOCK61   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Catches Attention Indoors & Outdoors
    Cons: Sizing is Not True to Chart

    Receiving compliments in the office about being with my helmet located on the coat rack says much about the visual attraction this helmet offers the rider. The POWER of being seen is enormous when others purposely stop to say I like that helmet because I can easily see you. Walking into a Harley-Davidson dealership and motor cloths specialist commenting they wish the Company offered a similar helmet announces it worth as a product that will be seen. YOU WILL not go wrong buying this helmet. YOU WILL BE SEEN and riders and non-riders will appreciate your thoughtfulness to safe riding.Now sizing was a challenge for me. My head measures 22 inches and ordered a small. It was too snug and replaced with a medium. With the medium my chin barely clears the chin bar. The sizing chart lists head measurements for a small 21 38 - 22 and medium 22 14 - 22 78. The overall fit of the helmet is good, but the chin clearance is concerning.

    Hi-Viz Rocks - dmbaughman   UT Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great color, great fit at a great price
    Cons: More air flow

    As a MSF Rider Coach mainly instructing on military installations to our service men and women, visibility is spoken about in every class and our goal is to make other motorists of our presents. This helmet makes that statement. Ive only had this helmet a little over a month and countless times Ive been told, I saw your helmet before I saw you. The only bad thing that I guess Id have to say about this helmet is that it could have more air flow.

    Symax 3 Helmet - 6-Gun Valkyrie Rider   MI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Sunvisor, Comfortable and Great Looks
    Cons: Chin vent doesn't flow much air

    I bought this as a replacement for a very old Shoei RF-700. It's quite comfortable and looks great. No, it's not a Shoei but it only costs half as much. The flip down sun visor is great and saves you from putting on taking off your sunglasses. Face shield seals well and the chin bar latch seems solid. The chin vend doesn't seem to flow very much air though the top vent is OK. There's a sticker on the helmet that says the Hi-Viz color may fave over time. I wasn't crazy about that so we'll have to see how quick or how much it actually fades. In all, I'm very satisfied with the helmet considering the cost.

    HJC Symax 3 Helmet - Great Fit, Great Quality - HJC Symax 3 Helmet - Great Fit, Great Quality   AR Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: True To Size, Comfortable, Shade Visor & Main Sheid Work Solid And Well
    Cons: Chin Strap Is A Bit Short

    True To Size, Comfortable, Shade Visor & Main Sheid Work Solid And Well. The Shade Visor is Dark Enough For Most Situations. The Modular Latch Locks Well With A Firm Pull To Latch It. The 3 Stage Shade Visor Works Well. Sometimes I Latch It On The First Stop And Sometimes The Second. If You Move The Visor To The Third Stop By Pressing The Release With One Hand And Pushing The Slide Up At The Same Time The Shield Comes Down So Far It Hits Your Nose.

    About HJC Symax 3 HI-Viz Yellow Helmet - Marv   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: The Hi viz very visible, Good compromise between 12 and full helmet, Price was reasonable.
    Cons: Slightly claustrophobic but better then full helmet. Snap on end of strap hard to close.

    Prior to buying this helmet I had an HJC IS-33. It was like wearing an old shoe. The reason I bought the new helmet is because of the Hi-Viz color. While riding with my group I could see my lead rider way ahead of me very clearly with his Hi Viz helmet. Also being a modular helmet it is much safer then an open one though I do miss the convince of the open helmet. Try scratching your nose with this helmet while riding with a group Being the same company who made both helmets I figured the size would be the same. It was. Although a little bit tight around the cheeks. But I'm sure it will adjust itself after awhile.

    hi-viz helmet - Dave B   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: True size fit, well finished, quiet for a modular helmet
    Cons: Could use a chin wind deflector

    Pleased with the helmet, has a quality feel, nice interior padding and works great with glasses. Noise is no worse than my other full face lids. Internal sun visor works well, just takes a little getting used to operating. Could use a wind deflector on the chin guard to keep the cold out as this is primarily a helmet for winter use. Otherwise good helmet for the money.

    Great helmet - Jeff   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Color, weight, function
    Cons: Wind noise from bluetooth access

    This is my third SyMax. Had the original, SyMax 2 and this new one. Great helmet Fits better than the two previous models I've had. Function is top quality and operates smoothly, including the internal sun visor. The ONLY complaint is with the bluetooth access location. It does seem to create some extra noise. May be that I notice it because overall the helmet is very quiet except for that one area. If the helmet wasn't Hi-Viz I'd put a piece of tape over it to streamline it. Optical quality of the shield is best yet, AND it has the pin lock system now. Great helmet, great price, great quality from HJC. I would highly recommend to the avid rider

    Solid Helmet - ads215   OH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Quiet, BRIGHT, internal sun visor, price is right
    Cons: Non yet

    Choosing to be better seen than to look cool I opted for the Hi-Viz. It will be seen, that I can guarantee you. As my last 3 helmets were from HJC I can't compare this to other brands, but I've always been happy with them. This one was at first a bit tight but got comfortable after wearing it for 4 hours or so. It's appears well-made, it's quiet, the internal sun visor is great and easy to deploy, and the field of vision is pretty damn good. If it disappeared I would absolutely buy another. I expect it to hold up as well as my previous HJCs have.

    Nice modular helmet - Jim   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good fit, easy to use release for sun shield, and quality
    Cons: Lack of ventilation

    This is my third helmet, and my second modular. I went on a long ride out West this past summer, and the helmet functioned well during the ride. One small thing, every time I pressed the lever to open the helmet, the chin bar vent would close and I would have to remember to open it before taking off. The ventilation of the helmet also works well, but only just enough to keep your head free of heat build up on warm days. Either more, or larger vents on top, would provide more of an airflow through the helmet. Not a big fan of the chin vent also since it is so easily disturbed any time you open the helmet or adjust your face shied. Overall, I like it, and it is a better, quieter helmet than my Bell Revolver.

    Great - expersvc   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Mechanisms work great Very comfortable.
    Cons: None

    Works great, looks great and is pretty comfortable for a helmet

    Great helmet - Danny W   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good fit, solid construction, beautiful finish
    Cons: Ventilation

    I got this helmet to replace my HJC CL-MAX II which was too large for me. Everything about this helmet is a cut above as the price difference would suggest. I really like the built-in sunscreen. The ventilation seems adequate for summer riding, but too much air gets in with the vents closed for winter riding to be comfortable. One thing that I miss that is not the helmet's fault is that I wish I had gotten white instead my old helmet was white I noticed that cars seemed to give me more room and stay clear when I am wearing a white helmet they probably think that maybe I am a cop.

    Great helmet - HJC Symax 3 Hi-Viz Yellow   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Hi-Viz, good air flow
    Cons: none

    Fast shipping on a quality helmet. I love the color, which I wanted for obvious reasons. I've not yet used it on a trip to determine long term comfort, but short term is great. I needed a 2XLg for proper fitment, as that is always a problem. Bottom line appears to be a great helmet, and I love it so far
