January 29, 2015

Amazing product

The helmet fits like a glove, air circulation is great as well and is practically silent compared to my previous helmet! First helmet with a pinlock visor and it makes a massive difference especially as a free one is provided. The helmet also looks amazing which always helps!

Fantastic all round

The Shoei Hornet is a great looking helmet, it's very very comfy with excellent padding. The ventilation is the best, no draft blowing in your face like other helmets, it circulates the air evenly. When wearing it there is no annoying wind noises whistling round the helmet, it's pretty much sound proof. And a free pin lock visor is perfect for those that mist up with the slightest breathe like my self. All in all fantastic.

Press Reviews for Shoei Hornet DS - Matt Deep Grey


Shoei Hornet DS - Matt Deep Grey

  • Semi-dual EPS liner ventilation system
  • 3D max dry liner system
  • Fully removable / replaceable interior
  • Cheek pad channels for eyeglasses
  • Upper, lower & visor air intake
  • Chin curtain
  • 3 Dimensionally curved C-49 shield
  • Lightweight AIM+ shell construction
  • 1 year warranty from purchase date
  • 3 Different helmet configurations
  • Visor & shield, visor only, shield only

With a removable shield as well as a removable visor, the Hornet-DS can be configured in three different ways to compliment all forms of motorcycle riding. With both the shield and visor fixed to the helmet, the Hornet is the perfect tool for exploring trails and back roads with your friends. The shield will keep the noise down and protect your face and eyes from bugs and dust.

The visor on the Hornet-DS was one of the most carefully thought out parts of the helmet. Not only does it protect the rider from dust and glare, but it is actually part of the ventilation system of the helmet. To begin with, the visor is positioned slightly higher on the top of the helmet than a typical off road helmet for optimal visibility. The wedge shape visor was designed in Shoei?s in-house wind tunnel to reduce uncomfortable wind resistance and buffeting. The reduction of drag and lift help eliminate neck fatigue and keep the rider more comfortable during long rides.

The Hornet-DS comes equipped with a 2mm thick 3-dimensionally curved shield that can be positioned in 4 different locations from fully closed to fully open. The shield can also be removed so the helmet can be used with goggles. Shields for this helmet are available in clear and light smoke tints and block 99% of UVA and UVB rays.

The Shoei helmet brand has always been at the forefront of motorcycle helmet technology since its creation, and continues to lead in terms of technical innovation, design, and safety. With over 50 years experience, they continue to manufacture the entire Shoei helmet range in Japan to this very day. Whilst the brand can undoubtedly be described as premium, Shoei helmets offer fantastic value for money when you consider the serious levels of comfort, build quality and technology that go into every helmet they produce. Shoei develop all of their bike helmets with a specific philosophy in mind which they call the Shoei Safety Concept. The thinking behind their philosophy is that crash helmets must be developed to ensure maximum head protection, whilst also providing unrivalled levels of comfort. Ultimately, Shoei believe that a relaxed ride provided through comfort makes a highly important contribution to the rider's safety. The safety elements of each bike helmet come under one of two headings, Passive or Active Safety. Passive safety includes focus on such elements as impact absorption and material rigidity whilst active safety refers to emphasis on ventilation, fit and noise reduction. Shoei are now, truly, one of the most popular and most highly rated helmet brands in the world.
