Description

The Hornet is Shoei’s premium dual sport helmet, designed to offer the best of both worlds for riders who don’t stop where the pavement ends. The Shoei Hornet X2 boasts many improvements and innovations over its predecessor, the class-leading Hornet DS. Most significantly, the redesigned louvered peak and shell shape of the Hornet X2 dramatically improve the on-road aerodynamics of the helmet, making this an excellent choice for riders who are riding primarily on the street, but who also want the benefit of some offroad capability.

We also love to see the changes Shoei made to the the Hornet’s shield.

The Hornet is Shoei’s premium dual sport helmet, designed to offer the best of both worlds for riders who don’t stop where the pavement ends. The Shoei Hornet X2 boasts many improvements and innovations over its predecessor, the class-leading Hornet DS. Most significantly, the redesigned louvered peak and shell shape of the Hornet X2 dramatically improve the on-road aerodynamics of the helmet, making this an excellent choice for riders who are riding primarily on the street, but who also want the benefit of some offroad capability.

We also love to see the changes Shoei made to the the Hornet’s shield. The thicker and more rigid CNS-2 shield, coupled with an improved gasket, creates a much better seal around the eyeport for reduced noise levels and better durability. An upgrade that most riders ended up wanting to invest in with the Hornet DS is now included–the CNS shield is Pinlock equipped and the helmet comes with a Pinlock insert. Goggles can be worn easily on the Hornet X2 while operating the shield, and are held in place nicely by the noticeable ridge on the back of the helmet.

Overall, the Hornet X2 offers a ton of impressive improvements over the DS, and has really been optimized for the adventure-riding, big bike dual sport riders who want a helmet that performs really well on the road but can still make the cut when things get dirty. Check out all the features of the Shoei Hornet X2 below, and visit us to try it on this weekend!
