HJC makes a snowmobile helmet. Looks exactly like a motorcycle helmet. I cannot find the info. that lists the difference. I like the heated shield option and they are on closeout for $149.00. Anyone have any experience with these?

The sno series helmets are no different than a basic highway helmet. Sno helmets will nornally come with either a dual or electric lens, and breath deflector, to prevent fog and icing. I would not use my HJC w/electric shield for the road because the shield is not quite as tight fitting and would be afraid of loss, also the electric cord can be tempermental and a PITA, the dual lenses are much bulkier and not worth the effort - as only an electric can be fog and ice free when used in it's proper application. I have been very satisfied with a simple pin-loc shield on the road - it works as intended(fog free) and doesn't change the operation/profile of the lens. JMHO

We have the HJC full face flip front helmets for our Trike and our Snowmobiles.
Only difference is that I have the Fog Free face shields on the snowmobile ones.
Never have a problem with them fogging up and don't have to worry about the heater cord.

I use my HJC flip for both the bike and sled.

Question, does the HJC sno machine helmet have a DOT sticker?

I have a full face helmet with the pinlock and it works fine. I have lost weight and it has stretched and now I need a size medium helmet. The idea of the electric visor piqued my interest.

Larry, ours snowmobile helmets are the same as our motorcycle helmets
with all the stickers.
The only thing I did was to change the face shields from a single pane to a double pane shield.
There is a air space between the two panes to prevent fogging/icing.
