HJC IS-Max II. First impression.
I ordered Gloss black for myself $188, the wife picked the Anthracite,(pearly gray) add $10.
Ordered from Revzilla, along with chin curtains, add $15.00 for two.
Delivery was free, and lightning fast, but was from Vegas only 150 miles away, so it was rather expected.
Using their size chart, the sizing was spot on. A very nice fit.
I'd give it a comfort factor of around 8 out of 10.
This is a modular helmet. The opening and closing mechanisms feel solid.
As with most helmets that include a separate interior sunshade, they aren't as dark as one would like, but this is probably a lawsuit deflection.
The shades lower and retract quite easily, with the retraction quick and spring loaded.
It is also set up for pin lock shield, sold separately. I think $35.
The air inlets are about average, nothing that can't be corrected by lifting the clear visor a crack.
The added snap on the end of the chin strap is a nice feature that keeps the excess from slapping your neck and chin.
The Sena SMH 10 attaches easily, and the shell has pockets for speakers. Lots of room for wire routing as well.
The liner is of course detachable.
The helmet used in conjunction with the chin curtain is pleasantly quiet, but not silent by any means.
The improved double D rings are easy to use.
I made my first trip of 200 miles with this helmet, and thus far, am happy with it.
I'll report back after a number of trips have been made.
