Ready to purchase now at Bush 2 Bitumen Motorcycle AccessoriesSHOEI HORNET ADV HELMET BLACK

The Shoei Hornet ADV Helmet, known as the Shoei Hornet X2 in the USA, is the successor to the Shoei Hornet, known as the Shoei Hornet DS in the US, and acts as Shoei’s top range dual-sport helmet meant for adventure riding.

This dual functionality is going to cost 519 euros, or around 600 USD at its recommended retail price.  At this price point, the Shoei will be competing with the AGV AX9, Schuberth E1, and the Arai Tour X4.


Starting at the shell, the Shoei HornetADV comes in 4 shell sizes, which is a great sign that you’ll get a good fit, and the helmet comes in sizes from Double XS to Double XL.

That shell is made from fiberglass, using Shoei’s AIM Plus system, which allows Shoei to reduce weight while making sure the outer shell is strong, durable, and light weight. So it will also cover you well on the road when you’re going at high speed for long distance touring.

Speaking of weight, a medium of the Hornet ADV comes in at around 1525 with the peak attached, which isn’t all that bad.


For ventilation, the Shoei Hornet Adventure helmet appears to be lacking compared to other full-face helmets.


The visor of the Shoei Hornet ADV shows substantial improvement over the original Shoei Hornet. The visor uses Shoei’s CNS-2 face shield system and creates a tight seal and offers a wide range of view.

Some adventure riders may be looking at this helmet and wondering if they can easily pair it with their goggles. Well one really cool feature of this helmet is that you can ride with goggles without removing the visor.

You simply fully open the visor, and shove on your goggles, making sure the strap sits in the groove on the back of the helmet.

Another nice feature of the visor is that it can be removed without having to remove the peak, something which couldn’t be done on the previous Hornet. To remove the peak on this helmet simply requires turning a small number of thumb screws around the helmet’s outer shell.


Looking inside the helmet now, the first thing to point out is the quick release cheek pads, a great safety feature so that helmet can be safely removed should things go south. To further help with safety, the Hornet ADV uses a dual layered multi-density EPS liner

The lining of the hornet ADV is completely removable and washable (including the ear pads), and the fabric is 3D Max Dry System II Interior, a quick drying material to help keep things comfortable if you sweat. To help with noise isolation and to stop the helmet receiving a large volume of wind, this helmet has a chin curtain.

Looking inside the helmet there are a lot of vents to further help improve the air flow throughout the helmet.]


The Hornet gets a lot of things right, like its comfort and the ability to remove the visor without removing the peak, but also falls short when it comes to ventilation.


The Hornet ADV offers serious adventure riders the perfect helmet for every kilometer of their journey. Striking the optimal balance between on and off-road form and function is no easy task, and the Hornet ADV redefines the meaning of a true all-road, all-element helmet.

 The name Shoei has long been synonymous with "premium" in the motorcycle helmet market - a credential that hundreds of loyal men and women in our Japanese factories wear with great pride. The evolution and production of our world-class helmet line is a meticulous process that combines the very latest in technology with consumer feedback, modern testing practices, advanced materials and nearly 60 years of helmet building experience. Just like the very first helmet built back in 1959, every helmet today is still handmade in Japan utilising a sophisticated process that involves over 50 people for each and every helmet.
