What's this?

Shoei Hornet X2 Adventure Helmet

What's in a name? Call it the Shoei Hornet X2 Adventure Helmet, the Shoei Hornet ADV Helmet, or just the Shoei Hornet Adventure - a rose by any other name would be as equally prepared for the street or trail.

Adventure riding essentially knows no bounds. The Shoei Hornet X2 Helmet offers serious dual-sport enthusiasts the optimal balance between on- and off-road form and function. Designed to maintain peak performance without compromising the core values of long distance touring, the Hornet X2 is a true all-road, all-weather helmet.

The Shoei Hornet X2 Adventure was created to replace the Shoei Hornet DS and to be a hybrid of a premium road and off-road helmet. The shape of the mouthpiece and chin bar area is designed to improve air intake and ventilation performance, while giving the rider additional air space needed to accommodate heavy breathing during off-road riding. Improving on the traditional off-road mouthpiece, the Hornet ADV provides additional protection in the event of adverse weather. A multi-stage lower vent shutter allows riders to fine tune airflow for most riding conditions.

Features:

  • AIM+ (Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus Multi Fiber) shell construction is smaller, lighter, more compact and extremely aerodynamic
  • Four shell sizes ensure a custom fit
    • SM Shell: XS-SM helmets
    • MD Shell: MD helmets
    • LG Shell: LG helmets
    • XL Shell: XL-2XL helmets
  • Dual-layer multi-density EPS liner accommodates a more compact design without compromising ventilation
  • EPS liner has been engineered to provide varying densities of foam in key impact areas around the head, providing enhanced impact absorption
  • CNS-2 face shield system is 3D injection-molded and offers a distortion-free view
  • Innovative ribs on the top ridge of the shield improve rigidity when opening and closing
  • QR-N base plate system offers quick and efficient shield removal without having to remove the visor
  • Thicker, more durable face shield gasket
  • Improved shield locking system
  • Pinlock pins and insert included
  • 3D Max-Dry System II Interior is three-dimensionally shaped to match contours of the rider's head, allowing a comfortable fit while maintaining a firm hold for high speed riding
  • 3D shaped cheek pads are available in multiple thicknesses for a custom fit
  • Max-Dry System II liner material quickly absorbs and dissipates sweat and moisture
  • Removable ear pads
  • E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) allows emergency personnel to easily remove cheek pads from an injured rider's head
  • V-460 Visor features an innovative wedge shape with strategically placed vent louvers which allow wind to pass through unobstructed at high speed
  • Air is pushed into the helmet's upper air intake by the visor for optimal cooling
  • Quarter turn screws allow for easy, tool-free removal of the visor
  • Large multi-position lower air intake/defroster vent
  • Two shutter-controlled upper air vents
  • Four uniquely-positioned rear exhaust vents
  • Three neck outlet vents
  • Includes removable breath guard and chin curtain
  • Snell 2015 and DOT approved

Premium helmet, for premium price
This is my initial review after a two-hour ride, my first with the helmet. Bike: 2014 BMW R1200GS. Riding experience: 42 years. Location: Around Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Roads, half paved "B" roads, and half gravel. Windshield position at lowest. Temperature: + 24 C. Weather sunny, with a light breeze. Time of day: mid-day.

This helmet fits my head perfectly. I purchased the Hornet II based on reviews (especially the Revzilla review), and after never having seen, or even tried on the helmet. Purchased it on-line because none of the local bike shops were going to stock the helmet due to price - couple of the shops had not even heard of the helmet, even though they stocked, and sold, Shoei. I tried on other Shoei helmets, including their modular helmet, at bike shows, and at bike dealers. I'd say that if a medium Shoei fits you, then a medium Hornet II will fit similar.

Liner - very comfortable
On-off ease. It's new so a bit snug, but not too tight; it'll work in with a few more kilometres wearing it. It is a bit close when pulling on, but once on, fits great.

Chin bar: one of the reasons that I wanted this helmet was because the chin bar is slightly farther from my chin than some of the road-only helmets. I use a Cardo Systems bike-to-bike communicator regularly, wanted room for the stick-in mike, and didn't want my chin touching the bar when speaking. There is enough room (and I do not have a large face, or chin).

Wind noise. I usually wear ear plugs, but on this occasion did not, because I wanted to see what kind of noise protection the helmet offered. Most of my riding was done at 80 or so kilometres per hour (50 mph), on country roads. There was a slight cross-wind riding in one direction, but not in the other directions. Conclusion: I will still need to wear ear plugs for any kind of highway riding for longer distances.

Deflector on the top of the helmet did not seem to affect the wind at all, up to 115 kph (approx. 65 mph) on the highway. In other words, Shoei did a great job of designing the peak.

Sunglasses fit well with the helmet on.

The visor was crystal clear, at least until that first bug splat. The helmet came with a small bottle of lube for the visor seal, and an anti-fog insert for the visor (which I have not even unwrapped, yet).

The vents worked well; the switches for the vents were workable with both regular lined, and with summer gloves (tried both).

It has the best rating agency approval ratings.

I bought a white solid colour to make me a bit more visible when riding - you don't get to ride as long as I have by riding like you don't want to be seen, :>)

Summary: this is a premium helmet, beautifully made, and it looks great too. It's comfortable, and hopefully, I will never have to test it in a get-off to enable me to report on its safety features. Highly recommended!

Best Helmet i have ever owned
This is by far the best helmet i ever owned and i am so glad that i made the purchase. I have never owned an "Adventure Helmet" but have owned, Shoei, HJC, Simpson racing etc. I have a harley and just picked up a BMW 1200GSA and wanted a helmet that fit well with both bikes, so my harley one didn't work well. I liked the idea of a visor and the fact this helmet is a new design. WOW WOW WOW, i will never own another helmet, this will be the helmet i go to forever. The helmet weight is standard, not too heavy, the view is incredible, almost like wearing a half helmet, i can see everything. Handles great at high speeds, comfortable, love the visor and the air flow. Love the look and feel, I cannot saw enough good things on this helmet. No matter what you ride, i don't think you can go wrong with this helmet. With my harley or my BMW this helmet is perfect.

Wow, better than I expected!
I owned the first gen Hornet DS and loved it. When I retired it I tried to save some money and bought a cheaper brand. Two years later I'm still fighting neck problems from the peak yanking my head back (I ride a dual sport - no fairing) so I gave in and bought the new Hornet. In 40 years of riding this is by far the most comfortable helmet I've ever worn, and it's got the widest view and best airflow too.

You get what you pay for and you'll be happy you bought this helmet.

impressive helmet
I have been using he original hornet for the past 6 years. I could tell after going 20 feet this helmet was much quieter than the original. The visor snaps down tight against the eye port gasket, something the previous model did not do well. The peak generates way less turbulence and moving at 80 mph down the highway I had basically zero tug on my head and shoulders which with the old helmet, definitely pulling my was around.
The ear cutouts fit my Sena smh10 speakers except I had to cut off the plastic trim on the speakers in order for them to lay nice and flat in their cutouts.
The helmet lost 1/2 star for for that and another 1/2 for being very expensive.
Overall a fantastic update.

Holy Donuts, Batman!
I've been looking at DS helmets for awhile, and decided to wait for the X2 to come out, since the biggest complaint I've heard of the style in general is the effects of the visor at highway speeds.

I was also thinking about picking up a Bell MX-9 simply due to the price gap. Then I got my hands on a Bell...and decided against it. Nothing against the Bell, it is made to a price point. I suppose when I scuff my +$500 X2 doing 2mph on a little double track I'll be wishing I had cheaped out. But for the daily commute I'll trust my skull to the Shoei.

The X2 is more than double the price of the bell, but I would go so far as to say that it surpasses even my RF1200 in nearly every respect. Comfort is phenomenal, I don't know how I lived without a peak (as my commute takes me straight into the rising sun, and at least lets me screen out the sun when it's a few degrees above the horizon). I have a dash riser on my KLR and thought that the airflow that previously hit me right at eyebrow level would be problematic for the peak on a DS helmet, but I have to admit that the X2 is actually better performing than the RF. It's both quieter and less effected by turbulent air. Not really sure how that works...but it does. I've read other reviews stating the helmet 'lightens up' while riding (presumably due to airflow causing lift on the helmet), and I will attest to this as well. While the X2 is slightly heavier than my RF, (the RF is also a SM, my X2 is a MED) it actually feels lighter when I'm at speed.

*note on the sizing: the RF was my first helmet, and I am right on the line in sizing between SM and MED in this particular helmet. I figured a slightly more snug fit would be better, and thought the cheek pads would 'break in' over time...they didn't.
I should have gone with a MED in that helmet from the get go. I only mention this because I don't want anyone getting the impression the X2 runs larger than the RF (if someone else is in the same boat I was.)...it runs true to size.

Head checks are obviously going to be more affected with a peak than the RF would be, but it's only marginal.

Yet again, I am reminded "Buy once, cry once." Rarely am I impressed with any product these days, but this helmet is nothing short of fantastic.

DS Helmet you can live with
This helmet has extremely good aero for a DS. I can run the peak on the highway and it is very neutral at 70-80mph looking ahead. There will be a tug if you try and check your blindspot on the highway, but other than that it is very civil. I love the functionality and looks of the peak, but wasn't sure it would be tolerable on the street. So far all of the 500 miles I've ridden in this helmet have been with peak on.

I've ridden down to around 15*F and it's comfortable with a balaclava or neck gaiter. You will need to use the pinlock to keep it from fogging with all the vents closed. I'd like it if Shoei comes out with a plug for the top vent, so we have the option of running without the peak. The peak swaps on and off in a matter of seconds, and the visor mounting system is also excellent. I bought a tinted visor for day rides and use the clear visor with sunglasses for commuting. There are slots in the padding for glasses and I feel no additional pressure on my temples wearing my Oakley sunglasses. I can't comment on the airflow, as I've only ridden in this helmet up to about 70*F tops. I can at least wear sunglasses and keep the visor open if I'm in city traffic.

The visibility of the eye port is excellent. My previous LS2 full face helmet cut off right above my side mirrors, which required me to look down and left/right to check my mirrors. With the Shoei Hornet X2 I can keep my head straight and just glance at them.

I would say this helmet is reasonably quiet. It is slightly quieter than my previous LS2 full face, but still very loud on the highway. I wear ear plugs nearly all the time, which allows me to hear my Sena SMH-10R better.

Overall I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a DS style helmet they can wear on the street. The value at this price point is very good. The liner is comfortable, high quality, and easily removable, and the paint seems to be more resistant to chipping than my $200 LS2. I got 2 years of service out of my LS2 and fully expect to get 3 or 4 out of this.

Best helmet I've ever used
first off, This helmet rocks! ..ok, now with that out of the way I'll go into a more detailed review.

Sizing - My last two helmets were RF1100 and they both fit me great. Tried an Icon variant - too oval. Arai Defiant - Still a bit oval, loose around cheeks and pressure on my forehead. So, if a certain size shoei fits you now, Id say stick with that size.
Padding is very comfy and snug. Helmet feels lighter as youre riding. Pretty light out of the box, but the reviews I watched talked about balance and its very noticeable as the helmet feels lighter when youre moving.

Biggest gripe about DS helmets I've read (Im very analytical and have spend more hrs that Id like to admit researching these), everyone complains about the buffeting and wind catching the peak visor. I only got up to 70 today (just got it) and there was the tiniest bit of pull when I looked over my shoulder, but nothing that bugged me at all: very minor. and speaking of looking over your shoulder, I could see much easier since it has a wide lens. WAY better than my RF1100. You dont feel as enclosed since the visibility is amazing.

Air flow was actually quite noticeable when I opened the vents. Other helmets you dont seem to feel a huge difference when you open or close. This one you can feel the air flowing in spots you didnt before.

Chatter box speaker fit in no problem. Visor locks down really well, so much so that when i closed it my glove got slightly stuck, but came right out of course.

All in all I'm extremely happy with this helmet so far. Probably not a sport bike helmet, but for a naked bike (FZ-09), it works GREAT!

2nd Shoei, first Dual Sport
This is my second Shoei, the first was the Rf-1100 from 2013 used for my sportster with no windshield. That helmet had a decent enough amount of airflow with the six top vents and the visor defog vent.

I purchased the Hornet X-2 to go with my new Klr650. With the factory windshield you really have to stick you head up in the wind to get the lense to clear. But the good news is the pinlock Evo Lens works freakin great. I ride year round and on my 48 degree ride this week I had zero condensation in my line of sight. Yesterday after 2hrs of off-road riding and sopping wet helmet the lense was still clear on the ride home.

About that sopping wet helmet. The hornet did not have enough airflow to keep me dry. We were riding in 60 degree low humidity, 80-90 % shade and average 15-30mph speeds. Sadly, the helmet did not have much airflow and left my head and the padding soak with sweat.

For a dual sport/purpose helmet I was hoping for more airflow at the low speeds I was riding in. In the future I'll be taking a towel or two to dry out after riding and a balaclava for the ride home. The insulation won't do you much good for the ride home if you wet and cold.

I can make this helmet work I'll just have to plan accordingly.

Fantastic adventure helmet
This is my first high quality helmet, I always stayed under the $200 mark and I'm very happy I landed on this. I was deciding between this and the NEXX adventure helmet, the X2 does not have as many features as the NEXX but it makes up in style and comfort. I was a little reluctant with the simplistic chin and front vent but it has really grown on me, simply a beautiful helmet and profile.

I also purchased the dark smoke visor (looks f'n sexy), very simple to put on. The visor locks down nice and really creates an airtight seal, I have been through a couple small rain bursts but nothing to really make claims of it's waterproof ability, but so far all dry. I have not used the pinlock yet, since it's hot in Texas and not much of a chance to fog up.

The peak gills move air very well and I can't tell it's there facing straight ahead. Head checks you will feel it, but nothing compared to my last dual sport helmet, that thing would blow all over so I have gotten used to it. I did try removing the peak and the quick releases on the sides are very easy, the top however is not the most accessible button/release, you really gotta push on that sucker and the plastic is HARD.

The overall fit is snug, I thought too snug at first because it's tight getting on and off, but once it's on it's very comfortable. Once complaint would be I wish the neck strap was a 1/2"-1" longer, I can get the helmet off without undoing the D ring but it's tight, little more room to would have been nice.

I also installed a SENA 20s system, fits right in but the cutaways they provide fits the speaker, but not the wire :) so that was kind of a fail, but it worked well for the foam offset pad SENA provides, so they do sit nice and close to my ear without touching.

Overall, I love this helmet and am very happy. Revzilla of course shipped super fast as usual.

Loads of features and great design, but...
I've owned this helmet for a year and a half and it's my everyday lid. I've worn it on 1000+ mile road trips, 90mph freeway cruising, rain riding and offroading. My previous helmet was an Icon Variant and this is far better in every way, except maybe looks but this is still a great looking helmet especially in white, in my biased opinion.

It's very aerodynamic under 65mph. Any extended highway riding over that speed and I take the peak off and any and all buffeting/pulling is gone. The peak removal/installation is 3 simple steps, takes 5 seconds if you're slow.

Quite comfortable although the back edge of my ears get sore after a few hours of wearing it. Adjusting the helmet by shifting it slightly side to side seems to alleviate the issue temporarily.

NOISY for the price. Ear plugs are a must. Maybe due to the shape of my head or width of neck, but I get drafts right behind my ears where the side neck pads meet the rear pads and this is the main cause of the major wind noise I believe. If you have a thicker neck or wear a balaclava this may not be a problem

Could vent better for a dualsport/adv helmet. Fogs up easy if not moving or in cold conditions unless the pinlock is installed. The pinlock works amazing if installed properly, zero fogging issues even in cold rain/snow conditions. Head stays perfectly dry in pouring rain.

The finish is not very durable, at least the white. Have gouges and scrapes through the paint from everyday wear and tear. My Icon helmets were more durable.

All that being said I love this helmet and only have a few minor gripes, as listed above. If the helmet was $100 cheaper I think it would be well worth it. I'm looking for a more highway friendly quiet helmet for road trips now but will continue to happily wear this for everyday rides.
