Float like a butterfly... go off-road like a Shoei Hornet X2 Helmet! Eh, maybe that is not exactly how the saying goes… but it darn well should. Straight from INTERMOT in Germany and fresh off the digital presses, this lid is going to be an aggressive, agile, and stylish ADV helmet for the most ardent of riders.
The most notable change to the Hornet is the aggressively designed, well tuned flow to the outer shell. For real, this thing is sleak! The upgrade to the visor can be seen in the dual set of “shark grill” vents that work to assist in limiting the lift put on the helmet by catching wind at highway speeds. This will make for a far more enjoyable time on the tarmac. However, this is not going to be a helmet that forgets its proverbial roots. From the improved venting system that will work to keep your internal climate more accommodating, to the vastly upgraded faceshield removal mechanism, this is a helmet that has serious dual sport riders highly anticipating its arrival next spring.
