The HJC SyMax 3 is our favorite modular in the HJC line. It does not have the smoking value of the HJC IS-MAX 3
, but styling and materials get a big upgrade. All colors look good, but the Hi-Viz looks kickass in person. The shell materials are a little more technical, and the interior is more plush. The HJC line has a near-Toyota level of finish on all their helmets, noticeably better than other mid-price brands.
