With helmet expertise dating back to 1971, in-house manufacturing and its own wind tunnel on site, HJC – the world's biggest motorcycle helmet manufacturer – is set to take the cycling world by storm.
Though relatively new to the cycling market, HJC's commitment to innovation and performance is second to none with the South Korean brand always seeking new ways to maximise aerodynamics, cooling and safety.
The company's entry into the world of cycling has already been proven through its partnership with World Tour team Lotto Soudal, whose stars – including Thomas de Gendt, Caleb Ewen and Tim Wellens – have already raced and won in HJC helmets. Meanwhile the brand’s Adwatt time-trial and triathlon helmet helped Victor Campenaerts set a new UCI Hour Record of 55.089km in April 2019.
This mastery of cycling helmet performance in so short a space of time is down to HJC's incredible engineering experience and backed up by the brand's own on-site wind tunnel, which allows the team to rapidly test their newest designs.
With a focus on not only advancing helmet aerodynamics, but maximising air intake and exhaust to outperform the competition, HJC's helmets are light, cool and packed with technology to give you the best of comfort, safety and on the bike performance.
