Very good buy

Not had this helmet very long, but first impression are = It's very comfortable visor works great, quieter than my NeoTec. Once worn in a bit it will be even better. Wide vision and more room in the front area. I like it, a good purchase.

Looks, feels great

My third Shoei in 12 years, awesome quality. I had a DS for 100000 km recently and now I am going for the Hornet ADV in the same size.

Not as good as expected

I bought this to replace a Shoei Qwest, with my criteria being comfort, larger eye port and pinlock. I've been commuting with it now for a few weeks. First off, it may be more comfortable than the old Hornet but its no where near as comfortable for me as the Qwest, and I did try a brand new Qwest on as well for comparison. a) the lining is far 'rougher' and b) the Qwest fits much better, feeling very refined almost like I'm not wearing a helmet at all as opposed this Hornet. I feel as though I could go to sleep with the Qwest on whereas the Hornet ADV would be a stretch at 2 hours. I also have an issue with the Pinlock. The pins on the either side of the visor hit the visor gasket as I open the visor to its fully open position, and again when closing. The gasket therefore will tear long before the helmets 5 year life span. Also when you actually fit the Pinlock, peripheral vision becomes significantly reduced, offsetting the benefits of the larger eye-port. Peripheral vision is important to me as I commute in London, as is Pinlock in winter to prevent fogging. I believe Pinlock could be far better designed if it weren't regarded as an afterthought by helmet manufacturers. There's a noticeable increase in weight between the Qwest and Hornet Adv. This however does not bother me while riding as its quite well balanced. Good points - peak works very well, cannot feel any drag at motorway speeds. Just as quiet as my old Qwest. In summary - I tried many different helmet brands and styles and ended up with only 2 options based on the fact that everything else was just too uncomfortable 1) Hornet Adv 2) another Qwest. With the benefit of hindsight, if I were to do it again, I would go with option 2.

Awesomely quiet

Great helmet, very quiet, very roomy and very comfortable! Has got a visor quick release but you still have to take the peak off to remove it. Only downfall I know is the visors are quite expensive especially silver iridium!

Top of the class

Comfy, quiet, awesome vision. Having had a Hornet DS for the past many years, the list-of-improvements from reviews made me go for this again rather than another brand. And improved it has! I ride it on a F800GS both on- and off-road. The DS was great, but riding the two back-to-back the improvements are very noticeable. Super comfy day long, be it fast motorway or sweaty dirt tracks. Some reviews mention the ADV being heavier than the DS: in my S size the ADV is actually a few grams lighter, and the better balance make it feel much lighter ! Also my Sena SMH5 headset fits nicely in the dedicated recesses (after removing the ring from around the speakers). Overall definitely "you get what you pay for".

Stunning and striking excellent quality helmet

This is an excellent helmet which is perfect for the bike I need it for. It is of excellent standard, very striking in colour which helps for safety purposes and also very comfortable to wear. Shoei helmets have always been my preferred choice and this product is another fine one to add to my collection. I would highly recommend this to other customers.

Shoei quality

Product excellent as to be expected from Shoei. I like the peak on this helmet as I don't like internal sun visors, The service from Sportsbikeshop was first class when I had to return first helmet due to being too small, second one fits perfect. My Senna SMH10 headset speakers fit in ear socket cutouts and are snug up to my ears. All in all a good choice.

Shoei manufacture all of their products using the keywords quality & value, and have used these criteria ever since they began manufacturing motorcycle helmets in January 1960. 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.
