HJC’s replacement to the CL-16, the CL-17 isn’t just one digit more name wise, it is a nice evolution of an already very good budget helmet.

The CL-17 is new to HJC, with significant improvements over its predecessor, the CL-16 design. The HJC CL-17 comes fully equipped with a new ventilating system designed to give riders more aerodynamic capabilities than previous CL models designed. The ventilation system has improved from previous models in that are now four additional vents, including an eyebrow vent which is completely new and provides greater air flow for riders.
While the shell material is familiar, we do see that there have been some changes to the shape of the helmet. HJC describes the shape to a neutral oval fit. Another new element to the HJC CL-17 is the improvement made to the liner. The liner snaps are now more durable and easier to locate within the helmet. The padding system is still interchangeable, giving riders the option to change out pads for a custom fit.
Customers are very satisfied with the comfortable interior and excellent ventilation this helmet provides. Although this is one of the more affordable helmets available, don’t let the low price fool you. The HJC CL-17 delivers excellent the quality and comfort we’ve come to expect from HJC.
The HJC CL-17 comes in a wide selection of graphics and colors. Riders can choose from six solid colors, or four different graphics in a variety of colors.
