Comments about SHOEI Hornet-DS Dual-Sport Helmet:

I have previously owned a Shoei RF1000, RF1100 and now the Hornet. In previous models, I was very happy with the fit and quality, it is no different with the Hornet. I do numerous long distance trips every year, this year Callifornia to Panama then CA to Alaska. The Shoei Hornet DS Helmet was one of my primary purchases for these Adventures. Last year I was on a trip to Alaska when my Shoei RF1100 got damaged in an unfortunate offroad mishap. I couldn't find a Shoei that fit me in the local dealer, so I picked up another brand. Now I remember why I wear a Shoei.

    Comments about SHOEI Hornet-DS Dual-Sport Helmet:

    After 25 years of wanting a SHOEI, I finally got one and I'm impressed! It feels solid, the ventilation is far superior to other helmets' and it doesn't fog up as easily as others. Very happy with it. The only very very minor flaw is that to close the visor completely you have to push down from the top instead of just on the little tab near the bottom but then it's truly sealed.

    This is the best helmet I've ever owned. Very good at high speed, very little wind noise. Great comfort... nothing more to change.

      Comments about SHOEI Hornet-DS Dual-Sport Helmet:

      I bought this for the sun visor as opposed to it's intended use with goggles for off road. The visor is effective, but nowhere near as much as on MX type shade.

      The helmet is loud. I realize this is by desigh a dirtier air flow helmet than my RF styles, but it's loud on my V-Strom even with ear plugs.

      The helmet seems to get more bugs than the RF-1000. This I attribute to the sun shield blocking up and over air flow but don't know for sure. In any event, it's going to get more bugs on the highway than a true street helmet would.

      I realize these comparisons with the street RF-1000's I have are really apples and oranges as they are two different types of helmets. It's all I can go by though.

      I've not used it off road with goggles so can't comment on that.

      I'd probably buy it again but perhaps not. Again it has to do with my style of dual sport riding that encompasses far more pavement than forest service roads.

      Shoei DS helmet

      By MC Camper

      from Lake Elsinore, CA

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about SHOEI Hornet-DS Dual-Sport Helmet:

      I really like the helmet. Seems very lightweight and is not effected by the wind as much as I suspected it would. In cold weather riding, it does fog up more than any other helmet I have owned despite opening/closing the various vents. No matter, I'd buy it all over again.
