Posted on: January 7th, 2014 by Road Rider MCA No Comments

HJC can always be trusted to deliver helmets with reliable quality, well-executed and innovative features, and appealing style. HJC extends these qualities to their entire range of helmets, from the most expensive to the least. The HJC IS-MAX BT modular helmet starts at only $199, but is a great choice for riders looking to add a modular to their helmet arsenal or get a fresh start with a new one.

The IS-MAX is prepped with today’s most sought-after features in modular helmets. As with other HJC helmets with ‘IS’ in the name, the ‘IS’ signifies a drop-down internal sun shield. The spring-loaded, internal sun shield is activated using a large slide switch located on the back of the helmet, and is retracted instantly by the push of a button. The IS-MAX also comes complete with a Pinlock® anti-fog shield which can be combined with a Pinlock lens (sold separately) for the most effective and hassle-free fog solution system available today. The flip-up chin bar can be raised or lowered easily with one gloved hand using the release mechanism at the base of the chin.

The ‘BT’ is for Bluetooth®, and the IS-MAX has a built-in, recessed, external port designed to seat the control unit of a Chatterbox Xbi2-H wireless Bluetooth intercom system. However, the IS-MAX will also easily accommodate other Bluetooth systems from makers like Sena and Scala when they are installed using the standard, universal installation methods.
