3. HJC

If ever there was a company that loves helmets more than anything else, we suspect it has to be HJC. HJC have been in this business for more than 45 years and they make superior and formidable helmets for riders all over the world. HJC helmets are extremely comfortable, stylish and use top quality materials and safety features.

We love HJC’s price points too. They are reasonably priced especially given the sheer number of features they have. Bike riders of all budgets can afford to get a good quality helmet through HJC. People can choose from mid-range helmets to high end helmets too.

HJC helmets are quite lightweight and make use of all the safety materials they can get their hands on. They all come with a face shield to protect users from bugs.

Things We Like About HJC Motorcycle Helmets

  • The helmets are cheaper compared to other brands.
  • Hundreds of choices in terms of color and shell sizes.
  • Comfortable for any and all head shapes.
  • Highly functional earplugs that will keep the unwanted noise levels low.
  • The interior of the helmet is quieter than most helmet brands.

Things We Don’t Like About HJC Motorcycle Helmets

  • When it comes to features, HJC helmets don’t match with Arai and Shoei helmets
  • The helmets come with a basic rear exhaust vent that is not good enough.


Great looking, affordable and hundreds of designs, this is the value helmet brand we love most. HJC has specialized in manufacturing motorcycle helmets exclusively for over 45 years and their commitment to providing the highest quality helmets to motorcyclists in the world for prices they can afford is unmatched.

Hands On HJC Helmet Reviews

HJC IS-MAX II Modular Motorcycle Helmet Review. This helmet is a solid winner if you have a head shape that meshes well with it. The HJC IS-MAX II is inexpensive and has features that you won’t find even if you spend 2-3 times as much. I would wear this helmet every time I hopped on the bike if my head shape was just a little bit more inline with the way this helmet was built. Read full review or check out specs and pricing.

HJC IS-33 Motorcycle Helmet Review. This helmet is packed full of features. From DOT approved advanced polycarbonate composite shell: Lightweight, superior fit and comfort using advanced CAD technology.

Our Favorite HJC Motorcycle Helmets (for 2018)

HJC Themed & Graphic Helmets

HJC has signed a number of licensing deals that is exciting for us riders. Ever wanted to be Luke Skywalker or Ironman? Now you can be with a a full-functioning, DOT-approved motorcycle helmet inspired by Luke Skywalker’s X-wing fighter pilot helmet. Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar helmets are all available now but don’t be surprised if you see more big brands roll out deals with HJC. Most of the themed helmets are the HJC RPHA 11 Pro base model.

HJC RPHA 11 Pro - Full Face Helmet

The HJC RPHA 11 is a premium helmet that is the next generation after the RPHA 10. A perfect “if I can only have one helmet” option, it is great for both everyday riding and the occasional track day. With a more aerodynamic shape and new rear spoiler setup and an updated forehead vent, this is a good update. Our sister site wBW recently reviewed the HJC RPHA 11 Pro and loved it, saying: “The HJC RPHA 11 Pro was a big surprise to us. The combination of outstanding ventilation, the light weight and solid build quality should make this a definite choice for anyone searching for the “perfect” full-face high-end helmet.”

HJC RPHA 70 - Full Face Helmet

The HJC RPHA 70 ST accomplishes the goal HJC set for the helmet—high quality sport-touring performance at a highly competitive price. A full race helmet with reinforcement materials including Carbon and Carbon-Glass Hybrid fabric this is one safe helmet. A cool dual purpose top vent that has both intake and exhaust does a good job of maximize airflow. We also love the integrated sunshield with its anti-fog coated smoke tint. As with all HJCs we’re fans of the simple and secure shield ratchet system provides ultra-quick, tool-less removal and installation.
