Love it

Comment: Great helmet for the price. I don't like using an open face at speed but don't like sweating in a full face going slow. First modular helmet I've had and I'm a convert. Great for Summer touring. Only concern is that there is a lot of space infron of my chin and it might be a bit hard to keep the wind and rain out in the winter. Perhaps best to keep it for Summer riding ?



Awesome helmet, love the fit & modular design.

Comment: I purchased this helmet to replace an old HJC that I was wearing when I got into my first/only motorcycle wreck. I walked away from a pretty good knock on the old noggin, which is why I'm sticking with HJC. I absolutely love having the wind in my face, and this helmet allows me to do that with the modular design. As another reviewer wrote, there is a decent sized gap in front of the chin, but in my opinion it just adds to the comfort (can't comment on cold weather driving yet, but it'l get cold here in MN very soon.) All in all I am very pleased with this helmet and am fully confident in HJC in terms of protection. Didn't get any email updates in regards to shipping and didn't get a call back from Jafrum when I checked on this, but the helmet did arrive one week after I ordered it. Kind of disappointed in the lack of support this time around, but the other orders I've placed have been just fine.

Good Helmet at a good price

Comment: I've worn this HJC CL MAX 2 for about 2 weeks now. It is as comfortable as a helmet can be. Modular design is easy on, easy off. I ordered Pearl White and it is a fairly close match for the paint on my Victory Kingpin. Ventilation is not that great with the chin guard down, but overall a good value.



HJC CL-Max 2 Solid Helmet

Comment: I have ridden in summer and winter. Left the house at 16 degrees. Had to leave shield cracked open to keep from fogging totally. Helmet is somewhat noisy but for the price ok. When it is time for a new one I would consider the HJC again.

Comment: Fits... Arrived fast... Looks great.... And DIDNT BREAK THE BANK!



HJC CL Max2 Helmet

Comment: This helmet has changed my riding experience! I am strictly a back seat rider and sit way above the wind shield and husband's head. I had an open faced helmet prior and was constantly fighting eye allergies. I also had to hold on to the side of the helmet to look sideways on windy days and at any speeds over 50 mph. The aerodynamics of this helmet make it almost seem like you are not wearing it. I also love being able to lift the face mask to keep cooler at long lights and to be able to talk to my husband. The space in front of the face is a plus in my opinion, as it keeps it cooler. I'll wear a baclava when temps drop. The only negative I have is the visor that comes with the helmet is clear. I changed the visor to a mirrored blue as the clear allowed in too much sun glare and the helmet is too snug to wear sun glasses. Sizing on the chart was accurate.



HJC CL-Max Solid Helmet

Comment: I ordered one for my wife and although she hates 'helmet hair', she likes likes it! Great buy and highly recommend it.

HJC CL Max Helmet

Comment: Excellent helmet. Tried a less expensive one that did not work. This one fits better and I like the extra room at the chin. Works smoothly too. Very satisified.

Excellent value

Comment: This is my second HJC CL-Max 2 modular helmet. I bought one last year and loved it but bought a new bike this spring so I ordered a matt black helmet to better match my bike. This helmet is an excellent value and I don't think there is a better one available in this price range. Looks and fits great and the modular style is awesome, I would never buy any other style helmet after wearing one of these. Great service as always, received my helmet in three days in perfect condition. Keep up the great work !!!

HJC CL MAX2 Helmet Review

Comment: I bought this for my husband for father's day. He's been talking about it for a while so I was glad to find the HJC. Size was perfect without the cheek pads. He really likes being able to have full protection but with the option to open only the faceshield. I will have to order the smoke shield as he wants more protection from the sun glare.

HJC CL - Max 2 Modular Helmet Review

Comment: This was my first order from Jafrum and won't be my last. The helmet arrived MUCH faster than I was expecting, was encased in bubble wrap, and was in excellent condition. It was easy for me to install the intercom headset in it and the outside windnoise was not bad. I am very pleased with the helmet, the reasonable price, and, again, the speediness of getting it to my house. GREAT JOB JAFRUM!!!

HJC CLMAX2 Solid Helmet Review

Comment: Saw this helmet on sale and decided to get.it. Have to tell that this is an awesome helmet. Fits better than the seven zero seven helmet that I have. Will never go back to the old helmet again. If you want a GREAT helmet, HJC is it.

Too small

Comment: Ok bikers. First of all I do not like full face helmets but since I am planning a cross country trip I figured I better get one. I am a big man and 5x is tiny. I first ordered the 4x and couldn't even put it on. The 5x works if I removed the cheek pads and the neck pad in the back. The neck strap is not made for a man with a 22 inch neck. The only saving grace on the strap is that it has a button you can snap. I cannot use the double loops like most helmets. It is a nice enough helmet but 5x is more like a large. If you are a big man...5x is tiny. Ugh it's small.

HJC CL-Max2 Helmet Reviews

Comment: Bought one for myself last year. Wore it on s 15hr trip on the bike. It felt great , I didn't need to stop just to give my head a break from it. Very comfortable. So I bought s second one for the wife. She loves it as well, can't wait to get the Bluetooth Mic system and maybe darker visors to complete it...

Love the helmets

Comment: Bought the helmets for my husband and my birthdays. It's perfect! Went from an open face shoei to closed face. The fit is good, price is wonderful! I will be purchasing the Bluetooth connection from Jafrum as well.

Nice helmet

Comment: I purchased 2 of these helmets, a 2xl and a Lg. The fit is good and not a lot of wind noise. We love our helmets, but they are bad about fogging up when you stop. You have to open the face shield at each stop, which is kind of annoying or you can ride with it cracked open a little. I live in the South, and I will ride in any weather. I have road in the 70's and perspired a good bit in slower traffic. I have rode in 40's and stayed warm. the ventilation is good when moving. Shipping was quick, less than 3 days.

Why did you choose this?
Jafrum Store
I bought this as an intro to the modular world. It is a decent helmet, not easy to get a good fit and has more wind noise than expected, but it does have nice features. I am extremely picky about my helmets so take that into consideration.

I have a friend that has a hjc helmet, and he claims that it is very comfy. Thought I would give it a try
steve m on Nov 21, 2014
I have a large head, 8 1/2. This helmet fits very well. The only thing missing is a chin/neck guard as the bottom of the flip up isn't quite low enough to protect against wind.

Is this a good helmet for sports bike?
John Stephen F on Feb 20, 2015
Best Answer: I bought it for a west coast tour on a Harley. For being a full faced helmet it sure did the trick. It didn't seem too heavy, so I assume it would work for you aok. It does block your peripheral (sp) vision as most full faced helmets do.
