HJC CL-17 Helmet

Posted on: September 29th, 2013 by Road Rider MCA No Comments

The HJC CL-17 is built on the foundation of HJC’s popular CL-16, but the CL-17 features significant advancements that have taken the value-priced, Snell-rated helmet to new heights.

Like the CL-16, the CL-17 delivers reliable HJC build quality and a Snell safety rating at an affordable price, but signs that the CL-17 is a new breed of HJC are evident from first glance. It’s available in solid and matte colors, and four fantastic graphic designs in a host of different colorways. The graphics are sharp and modern, finished with a heavy gloss, and feature a brilliantly redesigned HJC logo. The new shell shape is more streamlined, with sharp lines that cut back to the spoiler exhaust.

The CL-17′s difference doesn’t stop with the new look. Moisture and temperature control options are generous, including a new SuperCool interior padding material that is wicking, plush, and contouring. The totally redesigned ventilation system provides plentiful airflow and a quiet ride, and includes the addition of an adjustable forehead vent.

The CL-17 comes with a Pinlock anti-fog visor. It uses HJC’s HJ-09 model visor so you can easily transfer tinted shields between your CL-17 and CL-16 and many other HJC helmets models.
