Overall its a really nice lightweight helmet. Only thing that could make it better would be finer adjustments on the face shield position. I wish they made a 2XL as this one fits me really tight.
My 3rd Shoei - Never disappointed

This is my 3rd Shoei helmet and I am once again pleased with this purchase. As predicted in previous reviews, Shoei engineers a snug fit around the face. However, I know in advance the fit will be welcome in head on winds. The style is awesome and the location and size of the vents will be welcome in the heat.
Better tan AGV's Dual Sport!

I tried AGV Dual Sport Helmet, because that is the Brand I liked back in the 80's but after sending the AGV back several times, I decided t go for this Shoei Hornet DS Helmet. Great Choice, the fit is a little tight around the Cheeks, but other than that I love this helmet. True to size.

This is my second Helmet and I enjoy it a lot. it is super light and fits perfectly. The design is very nice and cool.
The price could be a little bit better but I really trust in the brand and I hope do not have to prove it
Impressions after 2000 miles

Safety - I feel better with a DOT and Snell approved full face helmet.
Visibility - Fantastic. I won't wear my my old modular helmet again.
Visor - It's removable, but don't bother. behind a small widescreen and the visor is no problem. You will feel it a little, though, in a strong cross wind.
Accessories - Smoke face screen is nice, but sunglasses will fit under the helmet. Also, I had no problem mounting a Scala rider intercom system inside the helmet.

Great looks, comfortable fit.

Very good looking helment (bought the matte black one). The fit is correct. This helmet has great peripheral vision and the drag at 120kph is very low. It is noticed a good aerodynamic work was performed on it. I haven´t used it a lot of times so I can´t say too much about durability.

The ratio value is higher than the cost price. It is a very comfortable helmet with a vision greater than 180 degrees.

This is a great helmet if you are a Dual Sported and/or Super Motard renegade. I have used others and this by far kicks the competitions (in this price range) butt. Not much drag from the Visor at speeds and the vents are well placed. Can't really call the durability as I have only had it for a month. Motorcycle Superstore has the best price around. I only wish that for the price you could get some kind of graphic choices in addition to a slick helmet. I have never found solid helmets attractive. This one will get some stickers to make it my own.

My second helmet. Had a shoei dirt before. It had no face shield. This one does and I just love it. The visor is a little short but still able to block out the sun when needed. Only thing I have a complaint about is the the fit. My head is between sizes. Went with the smaller of the two. Face smash!!! Hope it will break in sooner than later! Other wise great solid Helmet.
