We both have the HJC Symax-III with the Sena 20s bluetooth headsets for the radio between myself and the lady.

Update: my 3-week-old SS1700 broke (chin bar latch release failed), I had to buy a replacement on the road. (Asheville, NC) I have an HJC IS-MAX II. It's a much better helmet, with the notable exception of using the old D-ring chin strap. (The SS1700 did not.) Only other gripe is that the sunshade is not quite big enough and the tint on it is WAY too light.

I have to say that if you wear glasses, you owe it to yourself to try an IS-MAX II. I'd bet the designer of the inner padding wore glasses.

I bought a replacement modular Gmax 54S Max in Large size and it fits nice. The drop down sun visor will help when I get back on the road. Hummmm, wonder if they make a Rain Filter visor as a Sun visor is wasted up here in the Great NorthWet.
Two weeks back to work and the sun visor lever on the GMax 54S broke. I have read a few more reports (6) of them breaking so be fore warned. I may just return it as IF I get the replacement parts, will it too snap in 2 weeks????

I usually wear my Shoei Multitec in the white color. It's my 2nd one after wearing my previous one for almost six yrs. My other helmet is a Nolan Trilogy N43 modular helmet which I don't wear very often.

My first modular helmet was a HJC. It fell off of my bike seat and the latch assembly fell apart! It was obviously junk so I threw it away and have stayed away from HJC since then.

My current helmet for the Burgman is a HJC IS-MAX (modular), alternating with a much-used and worn HJC IS-33 (3/4 with full face shield).
Which one I use depends on weather conditions (the IS-MAX has a Pinlock anti-fog shield and is better in both rain and fog/fogging conditions) and risk tolerance (the IS-33 is more comfortable, better ventilated, and has a better field of view, but provides less protection).

Also, the IS-33 tends to stay with my Vespa 150S rather than the Burgman because it fits under the Vespa's seat.

Mag8 from Bell - love the visor design. Low cost, Bell quality - been happy with it.

Wanted hi-Viz - went with AFX-55 configurable helmet. There is a long term review from me around.
FYI - AFX-55 7 in 1 Helmet

Very quiet and comfortable and visible.

Inner sunshade in two versions so I can run with an iridium full shield in bright conditions and the light grey ( almost clear ) inner shield for low light conditions.

Eyes have never been so relaxed as behind that irridium visor.

Visors very easy to change
Very low cost too.
Been running recently without the long visor as speeds across S Dakota were so high.

I agree I am on my third C3 and they are an excellent helmet. I use a Scala Rider for the satnav and phone. Good even in the open position up to 120kph with the screen up. Very little draft unless you have the chin vent open.
