Review Summary:

While some of the new generation helmets for motorcycle are appearing more futuristic, they are becoming flawed in design in the primary essence of wearing this type of headgear: for safety. Unlike those poorly designed motorcycle helmets of today, the HJC IS-33 Helmets (Light Silver, X-Large) are typically designed to mimic the contour of the riders’ head and face creating an aerodynamically anti-drag headgear making it the safest to use.

Motorcycle helmets can save lives. This protective headgear is used by motorcycle riders. The primary reason is to protect the riders’ head during collision, impact and sliding from a running motorcycle. Helmets reduce or prevent head injuries from these accidents, thus saving the life of a rider.

One of the best examples of the latter is the HJC IS-33 Helmets, which is a US government-approved (by the Department of Transportation- DOT) product for use in motorcycles. This product also bears the Quality Seal by CAPA (Certified Automotive Parts Association), also sanctioned by the US’s DOT. Some other products of this type are not authorized by the department primarily due to flawed design.

Riding in a two-wheel vehicle is convenient but minor mistakes could result to multiple head or body injuries or worst, even death. HJC Helmets, one of the finest makers of motorcycle helmets knows these facts and they are designing their stuff the way it should be.

The IS-33 in light silver and sized X-Large is best known for motorcycle enthusiasts as one of the best brands in the market while industry analysts agreed. Find out how this typical, but cutting-edge product rules the highways. Read on!
