Full face helmet w/sun shield

Any one tried one of these helmets before? Such as the HJC IS-Max.

i wouldn't buy any helmet w/o being able to try it on. i wonder what the difference is between a $100 helmet and a $300 helmet, besides the obvious

I own a HJC helmet so I know how they fit plus local shop has them. Usually way too high priced locally though.

Scorpion also makes helmets with flip down sun visors.

Higher price generally buys better fit, ventilation, less weight, less noise, etc.

Most times, you get what you pay for, but recently, several lower end helmet makers are putting out some good lids. HJC, ICON, and Gmax come to mind.

I still prefer a Shoei though...

The wife's ZOX in small is a little heavier than her new HJC but was CHEAP and served the purpose. She wears glasses, so the flip-down shade is a big help. The HJC, with it's air dam under the chin, may not allow enough cirrculation to keep her glasses from fogging. She'll test, ONCE IT STPS RAINING!

I've also got a Scorpion, nice to be able to flip back and forth without having to carry an extra visor.
