HJC have unveiled four new models for 2019, catering for sports-touring, off-road riding and practical everyday pursuits, with all new designs coming in a wide variety of colour options and sizes.
HJC i70 helmet
The brand-new i70 helmet uses a smaller outer shell for a compact and lightweight design. It features an internal sun visor, speaker pockets for communication systems and a wide glasses groove.
The visor is designed for a better upward view and also uses a durable central lock mechanism. The i70 is available in a large range of colours and in sizes XXS to XXL and has an RRP of around £220 ( INR21000)
HJC i50 helmet
The off-road HJC i50 features an extended visor and chin bar which have been positioned to optimise forward and downward vision. Ventilation is supplied by nine intakes and four exhaust vents to maximise air flow.
The i50 also features HJC’s latest safety tech, known as Sliding Layer Impact Distribution (SLID), which helps to reduce rotational acceleration in an accident. The i50 is available in sizes XS to XXL and has an RRP of around £160. ( INR15500)
HJC C70 helmet
The simple and budget C70 full face helmet features a moisture-wicking interior, a quick and easy visor replacement and an internal sun visor. The polycarbonate outer shell comes in two sizes for improved fitment, too.
Once again, a range of colours are on offer, in sizes XS to XXL. This model has an RRP of around £160. (INR15500)
HJC C90 helmet
This is essentially the modular (flip-front) version of the C70. It features the same RapidFire visor change and internal sun visor. It is available in four colours, silver, white, black and matte black and in sizes XS to XXL with an RRP of around £132 ( INR13000)
An Important note for Indian riders is that there is no clarity whether the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) new regulation allows the use of internationally certified and comparatively safer helmets in India. Earlier this year, the ban on non-ISI marked helmets resulted in several premium, imported helmets being confiscated as well by the authorities.
