Verified Customer Reviews for HJC F70 Carbon
Fast delivery as usual and quality helmet…fits perfect and I'm happy….the only issue is that I didn't realise the visor wasn't quick realise and there's no safety pull to release side inserts in case of and emergency.
First of all, looks really good. Was quite impressed that I could get a carbon helmet within my budget. Having previously had Caberg helmets, the last one let me down due to a part in the chin bar breaking and not being able to get spares had to get a new lid so choose this. Firstly good points:
- looks / styling
- built in sun visor
- come with a pin lock insert
- wide angle viewing area
- 2 x breathe guards
- very noisy
- chin strap double D loops
- no quick release visor
- internals have gone bobbley already only after 1 months use (clean shaven almost every day)
- when using the larger breath guard unable to see speedo
- pin lock was really difficult to install due to the fact that the insert was nearly 10mm longer than the gap on the visor
- visor only has up or down locking positions.
In my opinion this is like going back at least 15 years as things have moved on so much with quick release chin straps and visor mounts which would not cost too much for the manufacture to implement. Probably down to penny pinching due to the location when the helmet is manufactured too.
Would I buy again now knowing the above? No
Quality seems very good. Very quiet at normal speeds. Like others I found it pretty tight at first (hence 4* rather than 5). This is mainly due to a lot of cheek padding, which will yield with use. There is very good visibility, the drop down sun visor is easy to use and accommodates spectacles well.
Nice fit and the same as other HJC XL sizes. Super lightweight, can especially feel it looking behind with a head wind. Effortless compared to a cheaper shell. Love the colours as well
Seems ok,but wind noise is still quite annoying as as loud as my previous helmet.
Fit is good,intercom fitted easily and sounds excellent
A better fit than my old Schoei helmet - lighter, quieter, and probably stronger. HJC intercom a piece of cake to fit, works well and doesn't intrude in any way. Usual SportsBikeShop excellent service. Did need to go for an XL, as the L (measured size) was a little too tight - but no problem. One satisfied customer.
Bought this for my husband's birthday, he is a very happy man now. Great quality, great fit and such speedy delivery.
Very good value helmet, reasonably quiet, good vision, nice sun visor, pinlock main visor. As a spectacle wearer it's excellent, no temple pressure at all, the weight is a big plus on long rides too. Would recommend this stylish helmet.
We brought this helmet for my wife, I would say after measuring her head we went for a small as she was in that sizing according to ordering charts but when it arrived it was really too tight to the point she couldn't open her mouth . Anyway we ordered a medium and its a great fit ,no problems sending the small one back and we got a very quick refund, excellent service by SPORTSBIKESHOP . Really impressed by the helmet lightweight, good weight distribution , good ventilation , internal sun visor nice look and I got a discount through Bennetts .
Ordered the helmet because I liked the visor design normally an agv user but this has swayed me. Less wind noise, smug fit and much lighter than my previous helmet 10/10
It's hard to write a review without having used it too much but from my first ride I have found it to be quiet and lightweight compared to my old HJC. The fit for me was very snug, my head it 57cm and a Medium covers that lovely. Once the pads have bedded in some more I'm sure this will be a perfect fit. I was surprised by the price when I bought it, to get this calibre of helmet for £250 seemed too good to be true. I love this helmet so much that I bought one for my wife, spiffing service from SBS.
Bought this helmet as I wanted something light and quiet with a sun visor. It fulfils all those criteria, and feels aerodynamically stable up to the speeds I've tested it to (which wouldn't be legal on any public road in the UK). So, ticks all the boxes, it's comfortable, and the obligatory comment about excellent Sportsbikeshop service (which it really was, thanks again Bristol staff!)
As always great service from sportsbikeshop. Helmet looks better than pictured, seems quite large compared to my shoei but really light (carbon fibre), plenty of room for my glasses also room if you have intercom ear pieces, double d fastener and pinlok. Good fit, very pleased with it.
This helmet is awesome, looks good, feels good and is nice and quiet. Also, a bonus for me is my glasses fit well due to cut out grooves. Can't fault at all. Delivered quickly as usual by DPD.
Great helmet, great value, great styling.
Snug fit, quiet & very comfortable.
This is the first time I have bought an HJC helmet & would highly recommend. Visor is better than previous ones, The D rings took a couple of times to to get used to.
Also great service from sportsbikeshop.
The HJC F70 Carbon a nice snug fit true to size. The added bonus of the sun visor is excellent on bright and sunny days. It's also very lightweight
Really good fit, comfortable, very light weight, good sun visor only 4
Given as strap is a bit fiddly to put D rings through compared to my old scorpion helmet and not keen on the need for Phillips screwdriver to change visor.
My 3rd HJC helmet. I buy them because they fit me exceptionally well. The F70 is no exception. This helmet is light and comfortable with little wind noise. The sun visor release is easy to use with summer gloves on. Thus far, I'm delighted. Icing on the cake, the unparalleled Sportsbikeshop service.
