This helmet is outstanding. I had an accident a few months back, where I was riding a wheelie at about 95 mph on my R6, and backflipped it going over a hill.

I slid down the road a good 100 yards on my ass, about 10 feet behind my bike. When I got up, I was missing the right leg of my pants, my wallet was scattered across the road, my jacket was hanging on by the left sleeve, my gloves were ripped up (fingers sticking out), and both of my shoes were gone.

My helmet on the other hand, was still sitting snug as a rock on my head, visor and all. When I pulled it off, the only thing wrong with it was that there were some scratches on it, where my head was bouncing around on the pavement.

I came out of the accident with no more than some road-rash on my right leg (scar for life), right arm (healed), lower back (healed), ass (healed), and both feet (scar for life). If I hadn't have had on that helmet, I would probably not be sitting here typing this right now.

A+++++++++ to HJC for making outstanding quality helmets, for a reasonable price. :cheers

I have the same helmet. I agree, it's inexpensive, but pretty damn good. I have'nt had the chance to fall on my head yet, but i've dropped my LID several times, and it is still intact. Hong Jong Corp rules!! :hammer

Damn that sucks but glad to hear that you were alright. I have two helmets; one of them is a kbc vr-1 but my first helmet was a cl-14 that fit pretty good and i still wear it to this day! Glad that you are alright though and came through your experience. :cheers

i own a cl14 too.. pretty nice looking and its comfortable.. too bad it didnt have a 1/2xL since L was too small and XL was quite too big... so sometimes it bounces a bit ( i bought XL )

had a good deal and liked the look so i went for it.. im happy with it

different cheek pads might tighten it up for you

definatly a good reveiw on the helmet, but sorry you had to find out the hard way. My first helmet/passenger helmet now is a cl-12, I hope its somewhere as good as that 14. I was looking at the cl-15, but heard trash about HJC, good to see not everyone thinks that, cause they are very well priced. I went with the Shoei rf-1000 but we'll see what i pick up next. I like the carbon fibre HJC

Now you have a good excuse to buy a new helmet! :toocool:

All helmet manufactuers emphasize that a helmet is made for one crash/impact only, even if the helmet suffered no serious crack, they still insist that the helmet should be replaced. :werd
