Can we get a motorcycle helmet with all of the advanced features at an affordable price?
Well, some of you would say it is impossible! Actually, it probably is because of what we’ve learned from all of our observations. There are many advanced motorcycle helmets available on the market with all of the high-tech features and functions, which make us believe that “Good helmets don’t come without overspending.”
But, it is not true. And you know why? Because there are a few helmets available on the market that are designed especially for people who expect to get decent quality helmets at hundreds of dollars less. And the best proof is the latest HJC CS-R3 Spider-Man motorcycle helmet. This helmet is the best example of a quality helmet at a price point, which most of us can easily afford.
Plus, you have probably already seen your friendly neighborhood Spiderman in Spiderman: Homecoming. So, in any rider’s world, there’s no way we are going to miss out on this one. HJC’s CS-R3 helmet has been selected as the official Marvel’s Spiderman product and comes with the cool graphics of Spiderman’s suit that Tony Stark gave to him. The truth is, HJC chose the right platform for Spiderman graphics.
And we all know that Spidey is your friendly neighbor Spiderman who is constantly looking to do good and make a difference. He may not possess the skill set of any of the other Avengers but the truth is, that’s the reason why he is the most suited to help people by ridding the streets of bad guys.
“TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.”
Same here, unlike other Marvel official HJC’s helmets like the HJC RPHA 70 ST Iron Man, the HJC RPHA 11 Pro Venom, and the HJC IS-17 Deadpool, HJC believed that the CS-R3 is the helmet that was best suited for a Spiderman helmet.
So, let’s see what this helmet has to offer?
HJC CS-R3 Spider-Man Motorcycle Helmet Review
The HJC CS-R3 is the latest version of the entry-level CS-R2 motorcycle helmet. The CS-R2 was a really amazing helmet for its price range and still many people prefer to have it over other expensive helmets. Due to its high popularity and potential, HJC wanted to develop updates to the CS-R2 while maintaining its price in the same range. The result, they designed a CS-R3 motorcycle helmet that breaks its limit as entry-level helmets and started recommending it as one of the best low price safety helmets.
Shell Design & Protection Level
HJC’s CS-R3 Motorcycle helmet is a DOT-approved safety helmet constructed from the advanced Polycarbonate composite shell using CAD technology. This is a unisex helmet that can be used for both boys and girls while riding a motorcycle. The aerodynamic shell design and light weight of the helmet give you extra comfort while wearing it. Plus, the polycarbonate shell has an excellent tendency to absorb heavy impacts that result from a serious crash.
It comes in two shell sizes with an intermediate oval shape and weighs around 3.55 lbs. Plus, HJC launched several solid colors, graphic prints, and officially licensed Spiderman print.
I just have to let you know that this is one helmet, which has the official Marvel print and yet is available at an affordable price.
Face Shield & Visor
The CS-R3 is equipped with HJC’s HJ-09 face shield, which provides 95 percent protection from UV rays and incorporates an anti-scratch coating.
If you want a tight and secure seal to avoid wind noise and moisture, then you have to give thanks to HJC for using a 2-stage shield closure system with a shield locking system even in a helmet with such a low price range.
Other than that, it is also equipped with the RapidFire Shield Replacement System, which is very rare to see in this price range of helmets. It is HJC’s premium ultra-quick tool-less feature for removing and installing the face shield. This excellent feature is one of the most simple and secure ratchet systems offered by HJC and you can enjoy it while wearing the CS-R3 helmet.
If you are already surprised to see the RapidFire Shield Replacement System and 2-stage shield closure system, then you will be amazed to know that the CS-R3 also has HJC’s Advanced Channelling Ventilation System (AC-S) with adjustable forehead and chin vents to allow air intake inside the helmet and two rear exhaust vents to flush the heat and humidity out of the helmet. This full front-to-back airflow system makes it ideal to use for summer riding and to keep you dry and cool during your ride.
HJC installed a Nylex interior, which has moisture-wicking properties with removable, washable, and interchangeable cheek pads in all helmet sizes.
So, if you plan to wash the cheek pads, then you can remove it anytime you feel the need.
