Wrap a tape measure horizontally around your forehead. Select the helmet that is the closest fit to that size. A helmet should fit snug on your head. If it moves while wearing, it is too large. If it is painful to wear, it is too small.

My son loves this helmet so much that he slept in it to see how comfortable it was. Great price.
I was worried about buying a helmet by mail but this helmet is awesome! The fit was perfect. This is obviously a quality helmet. It's winter here in VT so I can’t judge how quiet this helmet will be on the road but my guess is it will be much more sound proof than my previous helmet. I am very happy!
Fits great. No fog lens. Great price. Just pick one up its a super nice helmet.
The only place I could find a 3XL full-face helmet for a decent price. Would've preferred a color other than white (matte black would've been awesome), but I'm not complaining. For $50, it's a steal. Shipped quickly, fits well, warm in the winter. Great deal.
This is my second HJC CL-16. If the price remains the same, I wouldn't consider buying another helmet. It's comfortable, quiet, and allows plenty of airflow. HJC helmets come with a helmet bag and when I lost one, I emailed them. They sent me one free of charge. No better company to work with and no better helmet for the price. DOT and SNELL certified. Easy to clean and maintain. Fits like a glove. True to size for me. Well worth the money. Can't go wrong with this helmet.
My head is 22.5 inches,in between small and medium. Went with medium and it fits fine. First helmet was wrong size in right box so had to exchange. Pin-lok system really works well. Very happy with helmet.
The helmet fits snug and I did use the size chart to order my size. It comes with a anti-fog shield. The helmet is quite comfortable with an air vent to control the temperature. Very satisfied! Fast delivery and packaged well. The helmet has its own carrying bag.
The fit is snug but comfortable and it truly is lite weight I got the anti fog lense For the inside and it works great I will defiantly buy this hermit again By writing in detail about your product you are helping your biker buddies make better choices. Thank you.
Bought this in white. The size is true for my measurement. Padding is abundant and has a nice cover. Vents work well. Fog shield works perfectly. The only issue with this helmet is that the face shield takes two hands to open and close. It really gets stuck in the open or closed position. Seems like the hinge mechanism is too tight.
Just received helmet today and I am very happy with it. As I have been using Nolan helmets in the past. Real glad I looked at input on these and listened to all about the sizes, I did go up one size over what I have used in the past and the fit is good. Thanks.
This is my 2nd cl16 helmet. The shield on my first one snapped off. Not from falling but changing to a different shield. . Only problem i have with it is the face shield locking system. My first helmet, the plastic screws that hold the mask in place snapped off so I replaced the helmet instead of buying new brackets to hold the shield in place. But, for this closeout price i decided to buy another helmet. Wouldn't you know it, my new helmet was sitting on the bike's handlebars and was knocked off and the shield brackets broke. So now i have 2 helmets with broken shield brackets which appear to be due to the fragile plastic screws used to hold them in place. I managed to fix the brackets on both with some modification but hopefully this helmet holds up in an accident. The snell rating makes it worthwhile. Also, the air flow is very poor so i do use in the summer only winter when i do not want airflow.
I have been riding motorcycles for forty years, and this is the best helmet I've ever owned. The fit and comfort are perfect. I don't think you could get a better helmet for twice the price. and the sizing chart is right on the money. I would recommend this helmet to everyone.
Fits great, feels great, and cost is great. I got the matte black and so far it's been very comfortable. I'm waiting for the hotter weather to see how hot my noggin gets, but so far it's been good this riding season!
I bought this helmet for cold weather riding. It works well for that. Pin lock system works well too. Sizing was perfect and so was price! The only reason for not giving five stars is the face shield is difficult to drop, could be a future problem.
I currently have this helmet for the past three years and it fits a little snug but i like it a little tight. Not great on air circulation but for me riding in NY I prefer no circulation for winter months as I have a modular for warm weather. The problem that I have with it is that the visor is held in place by plastic screws and two of them broke off so the visor no longer stays in place. I first noticed the problem when it became harder to open and close and i had to force it open. Eventually it broke off. Now i need to replace and at this closeout price of $xx.00 its worth buying again but that could be the reason for the discontinuation of the product
good visibility, comfortable fit. I had to go with a size larger than what my measurements are on the size chart. you may want to as well
My order arrived in a timely manner and I really love the helmet. I will be sharing this site with all my tiding buddies and I also plan on buying more helmets for myself.
I had really just started out riding when I decided to pick up the HJC CL-16. This was the first full face helmet I had ever used and I must say it is awesome. The pads offer extreme comfort and the shield makes a tight fit onto the helmet so no wind gets through to your face. It comes with a pin-lock insert that works as a defogger which is absolutely mandatory as without it the helmet fogs in seconds. The rapid-fire shield lock makes replacing the shield quick and easy. Overall I would recommend this product to anyone on the fence about it, it's a great price, great product, and you're not going to find DOT and SNELL certified helmets for this price or lower anywhere else.
I purchased the HJC CL-16 for cold weather riding. After I received the helmet the fit was perfect. The first time I used it it was 40 degrees out and it rained on me on the way home. I had no problems with fogging or with any visibility problems in the rain. If you don't have one I recommend it. I feel the Snell rating is a bonus. The price is perfect. You can't beat this helmet!
At the suggested retail price of a hundred and forty bucks, the HJC CL-16 has been one of the best helmet values in motorcycling. At the Jafrum price of less than ninety dollars, it’s nearly impossible to find a better deal on a quality helmet. The CL-16 is constructed using an Advanced Polycarbonate Composite Shell that is DOT and Snell 2010 certified. The 3XL size helmet is not Snell Certified although it would pass if tested. This helmet has a very universally fitting head form and a medium size weighs in at less than 3.5 lbs. We have all of the solid colors, including black, white, silver, wineberry, and Rubbertone, which is a flat charcoal color, and many of the graphics. We have full size runs including sizes XS – 3XL but you should hurry, the more common sizes won’t last long at this price… This lightweight shell houses the ACS, or Advanced Channeling System. This is a true pass through ventilation system that channels cool air into the helmet, and extracts hot, moist air out. There are adjustable vent ports in the chin bar, for shield fog management, and in the forehead, for controlling the airflow thru the shell. Hot air extraction is facilitated by the Venturi vents in the spoiler and down near the neck line… If you look inside the helmet, you can see the intake and exhaust ports that are incorporated right into the helmet liner. This removable SpeedCool interior is made of a washable, moisture wicking, and anti-bacterial material. The liner is fully removable and the cheek pads can be swapped out for achieving optimal fit. To remove the liner, start with the cheek pads and pull toward the inside of the helmet to remove. You can then remove the head liner by starting at the back and working toward the forehead… Remember to always wash liner items with a gentle detergent, and allow to air dry. Also, avoid the use of fabric softener because it will negate the moisture wicking properties of the liner… Next, let’s take a closer look at the shield. This is HJC’s widely used HJ-09 shield system. This shield is UV protectant and fog free with the help of the included Pinlock insert. Pinlock inserts are used to create a fog eliminating dual pane shield and are a convenient way to tint your shield as well. Full tinted shields are great, and we have a great selection of colors that can really accentuate the look of your helmet. You can see what a simple dark smoke shield does for the look of this helmet. Despite the good looks, though, as a commuter, I prefer to use the pinlock system. When I ride to work in the morning, the sun is bright and right in my eyes, so a tinted shield of some sort is a must. But, on the way home, especially during the winter months, it is nearly dark for the commute home and a dark smoke shield would be too dangerous. So, I need to make sure I have both clear and dark smoke shields with me at all times. And, because my bike does not have much storage, I am much happier carrying around one of these Pinlock inserts in my jacket or vest pocket, than I would be trying to find a place for an extra face shield. Installing a Pinlock insert is easy. Start by removing the face shield. CL- 16’s are equipped with the Rapid Fire Shield System. So, all you have to do to release the face shield, is raise the shield to its most open position and pull this trigger on the baseplate. These polycarbonate shields are very strong and flexible so you don’t have to worry about creasing or breaking one, although they will scratch so be careful as to what surface you rest them on. Don’t forget to remove the protective film on the Pinlock insert and make sure the silicone bead on the insert is facing toward the shield. Line up one of the tabs and flatten out the face shield to get the other tab to fall into place. You’re ready to go. Reinstall the shield by simply lining up the tabs on the shield to the slots on the baseplate and press gently. This HJ-09 shield system also features a locking mechanism to keep the shield sealed against the gasket at speed…
The CL-16 is also a fantastic choice for winter riding and snowmobiling. For the standard CL-16 helmets, accessories like breath boxes and neck curtains are available to help manage shield fog and cold air. For the serious winter rider that doesn’t take snow for an answer, snow versions of the CL-16 are also available on our website. These special helmets are equipped with dual pane shields that are available with or without embedded heating elements. You can also get these dual pane shield systems by themselves to add to your standard CL-16 helmet.
