HJC Jumps Into Dual Sport Helmet Market With New DS-X1

HJC introduces a new feature-laden dual sport helmet in the sub-$200 range.

Published on 11.14.2016

HJC has introduced the DS-X1: a do-it-all, quality adventure helmet at a budget-friendly price. 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. The shield is also Pinlock compatible (insert lens sold separately) and provides three different locking detent positions.

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 with 10° of adjustability. 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. Air vents may also be closed in cold weather. To keep things comfortable on long adventure rides, the DS-X1 Supercool Textile interior is moisture wicking, 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 the competitive price of $169.99 MSRP for solid colors and $189.99 MSRP for graphics. DS-X1 sizes range from XS to 2XL and the helmet is DOT approved. Breath deflector and chin curtain are included. An optional cold weather breath box is also available.
