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-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.

HJC IS-16 Lash Women's Sports Bike Motorcycle Helmet
  • I have a HJC IS-16 helmet in size large, but it crushes my cheeks! It was suggested that I order larger size cheekpads.
  • I tried the XL at first which seemed tighter than the orginal ones (my helmet was purchased new in Feb).
HJC IS-17 Arcus Full Face Helmet XXL
  • It's very light, which you usually don't find in the lower end of the price range.
  • The helmet fits great and everything functions appropriately. It is not too heavy and the controls work well.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
