HJC CL-Max 2 Solid Helmet

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.

Great Helmet, Great Price

Same helmet as sold at the local dealership, only cheaper. I ordered it on the 10th, it was on my doorstep the evening of the 11th. Great fit using chart on website. In the process of ordering more items.

Good Helmet at a good price

by - verified purchaser
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.

Excellent value

by - verified purchaser
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 !!!

Love it

by - verified purchaser
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 ?

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...

Too small

by - verified purchaser
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 - Max 2 Modular Helmet Review

by - verified purchaser
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 CL MAX2 Helmet Review

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 Modular helment

by - verified purchaser
Excellent product - it was difficult to find a helmet that i could wear my glasses with. i choose matte black and am pleased. very little vibration of the shield at road speed. shipping time was unbelievable; only 3 days from order. also ordered a smoked visor for it a week later. works great and easy to install.

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

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.
