Shoei helmet
12 June 2024 by Calvin C
Outstanding quality just what I was looking for only thing is they never tell you there is a pinlock visor already with the helmet so I bought extra.
Incredible Helmet
11 June 2024 by Rob C
Recently purchased this as a replacement to an Arai TX4. I had the Arai a month and it was terrible and so noisy.
This Shoei Hornet is comfortable, quiet and so stable. Avoid any other peaked helmet and get this!! It's brilliant
On budget and fits like a dream

Shoei make great helmets and the Hornet is perfect as a dual purpose helmet for on/off road use.

Sportsbikeshop were as awesome as ever and switched the liners to get me a perfect fit.

Would highly recommend
Great price

I bought this helmet because of the fit but have been impressed far beyond that. I have always shied away from Shoei due to cost but as Sportsbikeshop discounted this in a sale I thought why not. I will never go back to a cheaper helmet. It's been a game changer for my riding experience. The comms system sits perfectly in the recesses and helmet is built like nothing I have ever experienced before. Well done Shoei and sportsbikeshop for fitting it and advising me on its features. The guy in the shop knew some great tips when fitting that I didn't know after 30 years of riding!!

Great helmet, as expected from Shoei.
First one received had a broken chin vent, all sorted out by a very helpful Bradley Hix.
Thanks for your help Bradley.
SBS could have lost my future custom if not for Bradley.

Helmet Review

Great helmet, very happy with all so far, only thing these type of helmets lack is drop down sun visor, just will have to get used to wearing sunglasses. Really good quality.
Typically top quality Shoei product

Having owned many helmets from other makers in the past, this reviewer keeps returning to Shoei. With peerless build quality and superb comfort, there's no need for me to look anywhere else. The wide visor aperture aids peripheral vision, the vents really work [at road speeds] and the peak reduces glare. A word for SBS - the item was delivered within 24 hours and at a terrific discount. What service!

Fantastic service from all at sportsbikeshop, and the shoei helmet is excellent

You get what you pay for. Lovely quality feel to everything from the visor control to the vents. Good vision especially looking over your shoulder. I find it better at speeds than my Arai TX 4, the peak doesn't catch the wind as much.
Great as you'd expect from Shoei

Just returned from a 10 day tour and used this helmet throughout and in all weathers.

Fit is good and quality is good. Only thing I noticed was buffeting of the peak at higher speeds. Maybe down to the airflow over my bike but will try to add a little weight to stop it on the next ride.

Visor is easy to swap out and pinlock worked a treat again as expected.

Excellent service and product
Shoei Hornet ADV

Great helmet size is great because it has four shell sizes so the size small doesn't look massive, the service from sportsbikeshop is amazing. I ordered this lid at five o'clock and I had it the next afternoon with free delivery and returns if it's not any good.
I will always use these guys first if they have what I want.

Time to renew my lid. Reserved the ones I wanted to try - Klim Krios, Arai Tour X, and another Shoei Hornet. Reservation process easy, emailed me when in stock. Tried all three, turns out the Shoei was the best fit - and the cheapest! Result.
It's a long one!

The quality is definately there in this helmet, my first foray into what I would call top of the range ish helmets, I liked the designs of the Arai Tour but my head shape is not Arai.... slipped a Shoei on one day and thought hmmm fits every bit as comfortable as my Nolan helmets.
The matt black finish, I thought was the best of the choice, it does show up sticky prints more than most though but soon cleans up and Ive since given up donuts its been much better, I have now got used to the double D fitting on the chin strap, but still prefer the micro lock system on my Nolan, but this is a small point, helmet comes with a Pinlock, I asked customer services if it did and they said no, so I bought one, hopefully the helmet will last two pinlock visors. I kept the extra as SBS price matched the helmet, no messing about, I sent the link and in 5 mins it was reduced, by a lot!
The helmet is quiet compared to all others I've had, the peak - my first, is absolutely no trouble but I don't move that quick anyway, but at 80mph, on my drive, I put the visor into the wind and it wasn't really noticeable. Do I miss the drop down sun visor.... not really, because even with the internal sun visor of previous helmets I sometimes had to shade my eyes with my hand or tilt my head right down, the peak seams good for that but do miss the ability to ride on hotter days with the visor right up... easily sorted with some safety glasses I assume.
Ventilation - the helmet comes with a chin piece/skirt, with more space around my mouth so I wont sound like Darth Vader with the flue as soon as I look at a rutted track, the ventilation always takes me ages to work out which way is open or closed, the visor steamed up a little but only outside the pinlock and that was soon blown away and I've not had any issues since, I've not yet ridden in a long downpour but hoping the seal continues to keep the rain off the visor's inside as it has done in showers.
Fitted Cardo Pack talk edge easily to this helmet and it goes back together easily, even with their own intercom Nolans never quite stayed together after fitting their own system to their helmet. So all in all good fit for me, price matched and even though it might not tick all the boxes it does deliver the goods and I shouldn't be so picky in the future about double d clips and internal sun visors.

Like all my Shoei helmets, perfect fit for me. Big thing this time is SBS had stock, other stores very little or nothing in sizes. SBS also quickly arranged different head liner inserts for me to get it fitting well!
