The following is from HJC, regarding its entry into the dual-sport helmet market with the DS-X1:
As dual-sport aficionados continue to appear more and more within the two-wheel world, HJC introduces the DS-X1: a do-it-all, quality adventure helmet at an accessible
The DS-X1 is the ideal helmet for both on and off-road riding, adapting to different riding styles with three configurations: shield and visor, shield only, or visor only (goggle prepared). HJC’s 3D CAD sculpted Advanced Polycarbonate composite shell results in superior fit and comfort, designed for the maximum range of motion needed for the bold and rugged ride ahead. The extensive eye-port allows for maximum visibility and superior goggle fit. A secure seal is ensured with integrated lock tabs, a beveled bottom edge and optically correct, 3D-sculpted shape.
To prevent anti-lift while riding at highway speeds and increase ventilation with ram-air direction, the DS-X1 supports an aerodynamic and dual-function visor. Ventilation is comprised of a large, adjustable mouth vent and HJC’s Advanced Channeling System (ACS) for high volume ram-air intakes that flow and cool through internal channeling and allow hot air to exit through the spoiler exhaust.
To address conditions after long, adventurous rides, the DS-X1 Supercool Textile interior is moisture wickin, anti-bacterial treated, removable and washable. The DS-X1 is offered in four solid colors: silver, black, semi-flat black and white. It is also available in the Lander graphic, which comes in high-vis yellow or black and reflective silver for added visibility.
HJC’s first dual-sport model can be purchased at a competitive price starting at $169.99. Breath deflector and chin curtain included. Optional cold weather breath box is available. Sizes XS-2XL. DOT approved.
