One of the first companies to make an adventure touring specific helmet, Shoei has been well represented over the years by the Hornet DS. The time for a replacement has come though and the very advanced Hornet X2 Dual Sport helmet is it. Placing a big emphasis on aerodynamics, the X2 features a noticeably sleeker mouthpiece, a completely redesigned visor and vents that are better positioned to scoop air in. The shell is a composition of Shoei’s proven Multi-Ply Matrix AIM+ material and by using the CNS-2 shield, you get optically correct vision. Street or off-road, globetrotting or weekend ride, the Hornet X2 has a design that comes as close to that happy medium as you’ll find.

Light Weight Multi-Ply Matrix AIM+ Shell Construction

  • Smaller, lighter yet stronger shell design; compact and aerodynamic
  • Four shell sizes ensure a custom fit
  • Dual density EPS liner accommodates more compact design without compromising ventilation flow
  • Snell M2015 & DOT approved

CNS-2 Shield System

  • All-new CNS-2 3D injections-molded shield offers a distortion-free view
  • Innovative ribs on the top edge 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
  • Improved shield locking system
  • Pinlock® pins and lens included

3D Max-Dry System II Interior

  • Center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match contours of the rider’s head, allowing comfortable fit while maintaining a firm hold for high-speed riding
  • 3D-shaped cheek pads available in multiple thicknesses for a custom fit
  • Max-Dry System II liner material quickly absorbs and dissipates sweat and moisture
  • E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove cheek pads from an injured rider’s helmet

V-460 Visor

  • All-new V-460 visor is the result of many hours in SHOEI’s wind tunnel, featuring an innovative wedge shape with strategically placed vent louvers which allow wind to pass through unobstructed at high speed


  • A large multi-position lower air intake/defroster
  • Two shutter-controlled upper air vents
  • Four uniquely-positioned rear exhaust outlets
  • Three neck outlet vents
