Shoei - Hornet DS Helmet review by Pete

I've had mine for a few months now, love it. Previously I had the Arai XD4, another great helmet but the shoei just works better with my head shape and I find less wind buffeting from the peak than with my Arai. The shoei peak is a little bit shorter, so the Arai does do a bit better keeping out the sun but it is a sacrifice I am willing to make for not having that constant buffeting around the peak. Shoei should also look into making the anti fog insert a little bit higher, it takes a bit of getting used to the line running across the top of the visor when you are riding, not a biggie, but worth mentioning. I had quite a bad off a month or so ago and the Shoei did what was needed of a helmet and didn't come out the other side looking too bad, I will be replacing it however, and I will definitely buy another Hornet.
This is a photo from google, but mine looks just like that.
