When it comes to entry level street helmets, the CS-R2 is as feature packed as they come. DOT approved, the polycarbonate composite shell allows the helmet to be extremely lightweight while still protecting your head. All intake vents are adjustable, and in combination with exhaust vents the helmet stays very cool in any weather. The RapidFire shield removal system is one of the easiest to use, and all shields for the HJC CS-R2 are UV protecting. All interior pads are removable and washable, made from a comfortable plush nylex material.
