HJC Announces New FG-17 Helmet

All New Fiberglass Lid Offers Performance and Light Weight At a Great Price

Last week, HJC introduced the all-new FG-17, a full-featured yet amazingly affordable full-face helmet for street use. The helmet was designed using advanced CAD technology, to be lightweight and remarkably comfortable. Final testing was done in the firm's high-tech, full-size Wind Tunnel Lab, where the company's premium and race offerings are also tested. The Advanced Fiberglass Composite Shell comes in three sizes for the best, most exact sizing options: 1st shell size for XS-S, 2nd for M-L, and 3rd for XL-3XL. There are a wide variety of interchangeable cheekpads available for an even more custom fit, and all crown and cheek pads are removable and washable. The FG-17 starts at $189.99.
