The CL-17 is new to HJC, with significant improvements over its predecessor, the CL-16 design. The 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 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.
The CL-17 Mystic design comes in two different color options. The graphic on this helmet plays with an optical illusion design featuring lighter color tones to really make it stand out.
The CL-17 Redline comes in five different colors. The graphics reflect a really cool racing style with an asymmetrical racing strip down the center of the helmet. All of the helmets will have the HJC logo on the back.
The CL-17 Victory can be found in three different color options, all very bright and designed with the HJC name running along the side of the helmet into the back. There’s definitely a bold choice in color representation of this helmet.
The CL-17 Mission is a really cool design, especially small details along the helmet. The sudden choice of light grey, red or green to the overall dark grey tones the helmet displays really presents a sleek look for riders.
