HJC Sy-Max III Helmet The HJC Symax 3 Helmet uses a composite fiberglass main shell to keep weight to a minimum but uses a polycarbonate chin bar to keep the cost at a minimum. Amenities include a drop down internal sun visor, a pinlock-ready face shield and a removable moisture-wicking anti-bacterial liner. Note: The SyMax 3 has a fairly round internal shape. It is ideal for people who need more ear and temple room but conversely it is less suitable for people who need more room in the forehead area. Features: Advanced fiberglass shell with polycarbonate chin bar ACS Advanced Channeling Ventilation System front to back airflow flushes heat and humidity up and out Optically superior Pinlock-prepared face shield with anti-scratch coating (Pinlock anti-fog insert sold separately) QuickSlide tool-less shield replacement system One-touch integrated smoke-tinted SunShield deploys quickly and easily Single-button chin bar/face shield release SilverCool moisture-wicking and odor-free interior with advanced silver anti-bacterial fabric, pads are removable and washable DOT approved

This is my first HJC helmet. I've own 3 Nolan helmets prior and decided to try something different. So far I like this helmet but I do have few gripes. 1. The lever for inner sun visor is located on the top of the helmet which makes it difficult to get to while you are riding/moving. It should be located on the left side near the chin like most other modular helmets. 2. The outer visor and face shield are on a different hinge mechanism. Which means when your visor is up and you open the face shield, the visor totally blocks the lever for the inner sun visor. Very annoying. 3. I preferred the buckle style micro chin strap of Nolan rather than the standard double DD ring. It take that much longer to strap and unstrap. If HJC can make these changes to their next Gen helmets, I would definitely buy another in the future. Otherwise, I might go back to Nolan. And please keep your current helmet shape (round/neutral)!
