Product Details

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

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States. Goggles sold separately.

I wanted the best. I got the heaviest. Sent it back. :) Did feel like super premium quality though. #peacesign
Bryan D on Aug 29, 2017
Great fit, super comfortable and it looks awesome. Ventilation works really well and it comes with a pinlock! Dot and Snell certified.
Francis P on Aug 17, 2017
Helmet is light, comfortable and offers sun shade when riding in the afternoon.
Gregory R on Jun 2, 2017
larger eye port; venting; ability to remove peak and shield separately
Toni D on May 19, 2017
Revzilla video review, user reviews, recommendation from 2 people that have them....Super aerodynamic, no buffeting from the visor, quiet, good venting, pinlock anti-fogging.
Christian A on Jan 20, 2017
I love this helmet as it has the "adventure" style and accepts goggles, but is as comfy, quiet, and stable as a traditional street helmet. Coming from the Arai ADSIS shield mounting system I find Shoei's system to be fidgety and I am unable to change shields while wearing the helmet, but the shields are some of the most optically clear and correct I have ever seen.
Vintzen B on Jan 3, 2017
high reviews for quality and fitment, and I like the low key apperance.
John L on Dec 22, 2016
fit perfect once I put the 31mm ear pads in
B U on Nov 15, 2016
Features. Shoei fits me.
Robert C on Oct 4, 2016
Fantastic Dual Sport Helmet, very quiet, light and comfortable. I wear it on a BMW R1200 GSA on long trips and on that bike the visor doesn't create too much noice or turbulence.
Rafael S on Oct 4, 2016
Heard this was a top 5 pick for quiet dual sport helmets. Have have Shoei helmets before, great fit, great price.
Scott D on Aug 14, 2016
I LOVE this helmet!!! had a hornet 1, this is better !!
James F on Aug 12, 2016
quiet, comfortable and the best helmet ive owned. I have had this helmet over a year and logged over 10k miles. no regrets
Kyle C on Jul 30, 2016
Head set ear pockets.
Steven K on Jul 6, 2016
Awesome helmet, still loving it. Fits great doesn't have a problem with lift on the road like other off road helmets with a visor. Great quality helmet. The only complaint is the speaker pockets are too small for the Sena 10C speakers, ridiculous oversight in a day with 3D modeling.
Dean T on Jun 9, 2016
I love the fit of Shoei and the look.
Jeff R on May 23, 2016
I like the way shoei helmets fit me, and this was no exception. great helmet so far.
Ralph W on May 19, 2016
Fits and looks good.
Daniel P on May 12, 2016
Reputation of helmet. Reviews by friends who own. Lots of research into what I wanted.
Troy S on May 1, 2016
Shoei fits the shape of my head. Not as loud as people complain about. Visor does catch in the wind a bit at high speed, but who wants a pencil neck anyways? After a full day of riding my neck felt like it got a workout.
Layven R on Apr 24, 2016
thought it would be a good ADV helmet, and while I l liked it and how comfortable it was, while I was waiting for it to arrive I tried my friends new Shoei X2 helmet and the vizor buzzed and shook my head above 70mph. Below this speed, it was great, new visor aerodynamics was great, better than my last/older Shoei Hornet DS helmet was. I'd say this is a great helmet for slower ADV riding, not for freeway riding. Any helmet with a vizor is going to have these issues noted here.
Duane C on Apr 23, 2016
Looking to have a new helmet with better features, the no-tool detachable peak is a nice addition
slaw on Apr 16, 2016
Updated features. Wanted a functional visor to keep the sun out of my eyes. Faceshield has a more flattened front to it than other DS helmets resulting in no distortion. Vents on top operate with 1 lever. Visor seems more solid than others. Color matches bike. Badass helmet!!!
William H on Apr 15, 2016
Needed a DS helmet and Shoei has always fit me well. Also, like the SNELL & DOT ratings.
Ted B on Apr 2, 2016
Shoei helmets have always been my favorite, being the best fit and most comfortable.
KLRRider on Mar 18, 2016
You can't get too much protection for your head...fits well
Preston B on Feb 7, 2016
I had the original Hornet and loved it, when I had a 50MPH get off in the dirt it did it's job and I retired it.
CaptRick on Jan 11, 2016
This is a gift for my husband. Safety, comfort and durability are important. He currently wears a Shoei and likes the brand so I thought I'd replace his OLD helmet with a highly rated NEW helmet!
Leslie R on Dec 3, 2015
just always been a fan of shoei
jeff m on Nov 27, 2015
quality, aerodynamics
Lee H on Sep 4, 2015
Good fit, great features
Larryinpa on Sep 2, 2015
Super Comfy and easy to use. I crashed my last one and am replacing it with another.
Sam L on Sep 1, 2015
I was looking for the best dual sport helmet, regardless of price. Shoei has been in the business for many years and has a great reputation. Online research showed nothing but excellent reviews for this helmet.
Robert M on Aug 21, 2015
I like the Shoei quality, and the visor/tall windshield make for a good riding experience.
"" " on Aug 17, 2015
I needed to replace my well-used XD3, and Shoei fits me the best (oval head shape). The Arai peak is better at blocking the sun, but the Shoei beats the Arai in every other respect.
James M on Jul 31, 2015
It's my head after all, how do you put a price on it?
Bill S on Jul 6, 2015
Time to replace my old Shoei Hornet.
Charles D on Jun 30, 2015
Wanted a dual sport helmet that was more road oriented (vs. XD-4)
Jerod Z on Jun 26, 2015
I was way overdue for a new helmet and decided to get a top quality one for better fit, comfort, protection, and all the other features.
Lisa G on Jun 8, 2015
snell 2015 and haven't had a new helmet in like 8 years.
William Z on May 28, 2015
Like the fit, sytle, and protection Shoei provides.
Dave B on May 2, 2015
I've had two of the original Shoei Hornet and an Arai XD3. Shoei fits my mellon better than the Arai, and I like the changes Shoei has made to the Hornet 2. Looking forward to getting it.
Bruce J on Apr 24, 2015
All reviews indicate high quality, aerodynamic, and low noise, with good ventilation.
Dave F on Apr 23, 2015
I really like my Shoei Neotec, and I have used it for both on and off road riding
wanted a more dual -sport riding helmet: I was looking at the DS's on closeout
but the visors are a pain in the backside to replace, so I spent the money and
got Hornet X2
Lee C on Apr 18, 2015
Construction quality and fit.
MARK W on Apr 8, 2015
This is the helmet to end all other helmets. I absolutely love it! Can't believe my ex got it for me.
adam w on Apr 1, 2015
Ive returned two helmets due to trying a new brand, and my last two were shoei's so sticking with what works.
kyle j on Mar 25, 2015

Bryan D on Aug 29, 2017
When is Anthony going to do a SAWEET video for this lid?!?! Inquiring minds need to know!
Raymond H on Jan 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Review video is now available
How is the noise level? I bought an AGV dual sport helmet from you guys and was disapointed with the wind noise and the visor vibration at hwy speeds. Gave it to my son and bought a Shoei Qwest but I really miss having a visor.
TOM H on Feb 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is my first dual sport helmet but I can tell you the helmet is very quite at highway speed, I'm really impressed (I also have a BMW System 6 EVO which is a really quite helmet). No complains so far (I ride a BMW R1200 GS Adventure).

The Shoei is far better than the AGV.
I have an old Shoei Hornet, and the visor leaves a lot to be desired. It is too far up and doesn't reach out far enough to block the sun, while my buddy with an Arai xd4 laughs at me every time we head into the sun. You can barely even see the visor while wearing the helmet. Does the X2's visor do a better job?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used the visor yesterday when riding toward the sun at 5pm and it worked great.
I own a Shoei VFX-W helmet in size XL. I bought this in preference over the Hornet DS which came is size XL but did not have any optional thickness center pads available. So far, I haven't purchased the increased thickness center or cheek pads to tighten up the fit. Will the Hornet X2 fit very similar to the VFX-W? And will optional thickness center and cheek pads be available to modify a size XL?
A shopper on Jan 21, 2015
How is the water resistance? Has anyone taken this helmet into heavy rain / snow ?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I haven't seen snow.

I have, however, been in a few big downpours with this helmet and ridden with it during a few rainfalls lasting a few hours. . . most recently while crossing Imogene pass in Ouray, Co.

I forgot I had a vent just above my forehad, so that was left open, but I did close the one on top, leaving just the front two vents open. I was pretty pleased. I didn't get any water in the top front vent, and didn't notice any in the bottom front vent(mouth). The only thing that I disliked is that I had to keep the shield cracked and water would come down from the shield seal on the top and drip inside the helmet. Overall I was pretty pleased.

With that said, I wrecked at the end of the trip and my helmet is a loss, but the good news is that my head is still in-tact without cracks or brain damage.

I'm super pleased with this helmet, but the price tag is a bit hard to swallow.
Does the hornet X2 come with the pinlock shield in the box?
Thanks, Chris
christian b on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, mine did. That's not necessarily the case if you buy it from another retailer. I installed my Pinlock yesterday and it fit perfectly as expected.
I'm looking to buy my first helmet, everybody seems to love this helmet. Will this helmet fit when I wear my prescription glasses?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wear my prescription glasses with my X2 without any problems. My helmet fits snugly and I have to slide my glasses carefully over my ears once I have the helmet on and strapped. Depending on what kind of frames you have will determine how easy it is to put them on and remove them. This helmet is one of the quietest I have ever owned, and I've had dozens. There is a little lift from the peak (visor) at highway speeds, but it is much less than most others. If this is your first helmet you will be spoiled and not want to wear any others. I also bought the smoked visor for bright days, since I don't have prescriptions sunglasses and the clip on variety don't want to stay on my glasses when I get in the rough stuff.
I can't seem to get this helmet on with my in-ear RHA ear buds. It's pretty painful and takes way too long to set the buds in my ear holes.. Which speakers would you recommend for this helmet that fit without any modifications? I'm a fan of the uclear, but I've never owned a communicator before. I mostly want this for music and GPS.
Chris C on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am using a Sena SMH10 with this helmet. The speakers fit in the provided pockets and work well. I have to wiggle the helmet a little until my ears are positioned, but then there is no extra pressure.
Dave
Did anyone have to size up with this helmet?

I went from a rf-1100 size medium to a size medium in the X2 and I have some crazy forehead pressure after about an hour of riding.
Alexander B on Oct 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Alexander, I found the helmet true to size. I mostly wear medium in other brands as well. There is some break in time required with this and most properly fit helmets as they all start out snug. It took a few weeks before mine was completely broken in. Hope that helps.

Michael
Blue tooth compatibility?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is no Bluetooth built in. I installed the Sena SMH 10R. The speaker pockets are a little small but the speakers do fit.
