HJC Symax 3 Helmet: Brand New for 2011

The HJC Symax 3 Helmet is brand new for Fall 2011 and marks a big step forward from its predecessor, the Sy-Max 2. The main upgrade that we're seeing with this helmet is in the construction of the shell. This year's model is using a lightweight fiberglass and Spectra weave shell with a polycarbonate alloy and ABS chin bar. Spectra is a relatively new fiber being touted as one of the world's strongest and lightest fibers, offering 15x the strength of steel, higher durability and than polyester and strength that trumps aramid fiber by 40%. We're also seeing the Sy-Max 3 using a new shield, the HJ-17, which offers the Quickslide shield replacement system which is one of the fastest and simplest we've seen in the industry.

Lets check out the HJC Symax 3 Helmet Review:



The inner sunshield is now smoother and quieter in operation than the previous version of this helmet, the ventilation has been refined and improved, and the HJC Symax 3 Helmet is also completely compatible with the XBi2-H wireless intercom system. For HJC Helmets, the Symax 3 Helmet represents a big step forward in their modular lineup as it provides a great deal of bang for the buck in a sub-$300 flip-up lid. We will be getting our hands on one of these in the very near future, so make sure you stay tuned for our detailed video breakdown.
