New helmet

Post by bigsteveswing » Wed Jun 12, 2019 5:46 pm

Just got my new helmet delivered yesterday. I know some will probably judge for buying HJC but honestly I have an HJC off-road helmet and have loved it for years. Not the most expensive but I really like it so far. I am going to do some custom made reflective vinyl designs and I am pretty happy with how close the color match is considering it is a stock HJC color. Hope to be riding soon after all the work on the rig over 2 summers.

I've had a couple HJC helmets and they are good helmets at a good price. I have the modular MAX-II and would still be wearing it if I hadn't found out my head is more oval than round and the MAX-II is slightly round. It caused pressure on my forehead and headaches. My wife still likes hers and thinks it is quieter than the Neotec-2 I got for her after getting mine and REALLY liking it. Her head is also more oval than round and she says the Neotec is more comfortable, but insists the MAX-II is quieter. I don't get it.

Personally, I like HJC helmets. You can spend a breathtaking amount more money without any real increase in protection or more comfortable fit. Over the past 50 years, I've had dozens of helmets, from extremely cheap to extremely expensive. I'm still partial to HJC, as they're great value for money IMHO.
