About the Product
The HJC IS-16 Lash Ladies Motorcycle Helmet features an Advanced Polycarbonate Composite Shell, which is lightweight, has a superior fit and comfort using advanced CAD technology. The one-touch Integrated SunShield makes deploying the AccuSight™ Anti-fog Faceshield quick and easy. The IS-16 Lash Ladies Motorcycle Helmet has an Advanced Channeling Ventilation System for full front to back airflow that flushes heat and humidity up and out.
If you've ever thought, "I wish I had sunglasses right now" the HJC IS-17 might be the helmet for you. A centrally mounted slide on the top of the helmet will lower a tinted visor to keep the rays at bay. To keep the sun's energy in check, the IS-17 features a moisture wicking interior liner coupled with generous intake and exhaust vents for channeling cool air in and hot air out.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
HJC IS-16 Lash Women's Sports Bike Motorcycle Helmet
  • The helmet is super nice, very well constructed the padding inside is high quality, vent switches are sturdy and easy to use, nothing on this helmet seems low quality.
  • Best safety bang you are going to get for your buck. Visor is easy to operate even in gloves. Fits as advertised.
  • This helmet is excellent. Quiet on the road, the venting is perfect. You can always tell a quality helmet when you first put it on.
  • Never fogs. Good for more oval shaped skulls. Love that the shell is smaller than most.
  • This is a good helmet and I understand that, but the front nose piece arrived cracked in half.
HJC IS-17 Arcus Full Face Helmet XXL
  • I am incredibly impressed with this helmet. I always thought of HJC as being on the lower end of the quality spectrum, but I no longer feel that way.
  • Awesome helmet, love the drop down shades. Everything feels well put together and sturdy.
  • This helmet works great! It's comfortable and it'll keep you safe in a crash!
  • Great helmet, but not what it says. I ordered it because it had the sun shield but it does not have that. It’s funny. I ordered the exact same model in the shiny black but that one did. Be sure you are getting what you paid for.

What customers say about "Features"
HJC IS-16 Lash Women's Sports Bike Motorcycle Helmet
  • Very easy to swap out face shields. Very easy to wipe down and clean.
  • Вetents on visor are firm so you can crack it for more airflow.
  • This is a great helmet. Comfortable. Prefect for cold days with the anti-fog insert.
  • Helmet is a bit noisy. At high speeds, one side whistles a bit.
  • On cold mornings I have to keep visor a little bit open for avoiding fog.
HJC IS-17 Arcus Full Face Helmet XXL
  • Great helmet! Thanks! Love the pull down sun glass.
  • The internal sun shade works well and the helmet is very quiet.
  • This helmet is a fantastic bang for your buck. I love that I don't have to worry about hauling around sunglasses. the build in visors fit over regular glasses with plenty of room.
  • Great helmet, it does fit snug compared to other helmets models made by this company. The fighter jet helmet style sunshade is very useful. It is aerodynamic, vents keep my head cool and the visor lock keeps the visor down at highway speed.
  • The only downside is that when the vents are open, I actually catch bugs inside the visor. and there is no pillock, so I suggest investing in an anti-fog shield.
  • I would give it a higher rating if it had speaker cutouts. Also the fact that the flip down visor is hardly tinted so you have to buy a darker one to install.
