When my 16 year old daughter first got her 50cc motorbike back in November, I was really concsious about the choice of helmet, I was really worried and obviously wanted her to get the best one that she was able to afford. HJC came recommended to us by a family friend who is owns a motorcycle himself and I did some research and found that it has quite a good name.
We got this helmet off Ebay, not secondhand but from a shop. It was £80, now £50 and my daughter really liked it. She isn't too girly and wanted a blue bike so she chose this because of the colour and also because of the name. I thought this was a great price for the helmet and was pleased with the brand that we chose.
HJC helmets come from a size xxs to an xxxL as well as youth sizes as well. The fittings of the helmet are very accurate and when the helmet came, it fitted my daughter like a glove.
I haven't worn the helmet so I'm going to let my dauhter talk about the comfort and riding in it now:
The helmet is comfy and there are lots of ventilation holes in it to make it breathable when I'm on my bike. These can be opened or closed weather depending. The visor is meant to be anti fog although I don't realy think this works, it still gets a little steamy if it's cold out, which it has been lately. The strap on the helmet isn't the best, you have to put it through a loop then bring it back around and shut a little press stud so it can be awkward if you put your gloves on first but other than that, it's a snug comfy fit that doesn't move around on my head whilst Im riding which is what is important. I love the design, it's got glitter on the darker silver parts which makes it still a little bit girls, but too over the top. The size of the visor gives lots of visibiltity so I can see fine. It's not too heavy at all, Its only an xs helmet so I wouldn't expect it to be very heavy anyway. The only problem with is it that it doesn't fit in the seat of my bike which is why I've bought another one for when I go shopping which does fit. Ive not come off my bike, yet!, so i can't comment on the reliability or strentgth of it just yet, but if the opportunity arises, I will get my mum to update the review!
Overall, I think my daughters helmet is very good. It's snazzy looking and easily available at a reasonable price. It also comes in red and black to match your bike or clothing if you prefer. I'd definitely recommend it because my daughter is very pleased with it so far!
