Comments about Shoei Hornet DS Sonora Dual-Sport Motorcycle Helmet:

The Sonora DS is just what you would expect from a quality company such as Shoei. Fit and finish are excellent, and ventilation is above what I expected. The helmet has minimal buffeting at highway speeds with the visor on. The visor is simple to remove and reattach, and the removable lining is plush and comfortable. The helmet fits perfectly snug, and gives you confidence in it's ability to provide excellent safety in the event of a crash. Overall this helmet is a great price for the quality. I use it for both daily commuting and dual sport riding. I highly recommend it !!!

Comments about Shoei Hornet DS Sonora Dual-Sport Motorcycle Helmet:

The Sonora is a prime example of Shoei's excellent fit and finish. I found the visor to be easily removed when needed and minimal buffeting occurred at highway speeds with the visor attached. The air flow through the helmet is very good, better than I expected for a dual sport helmet. I use this helmet for everyday commuting and off road use. Without the face shield, the helmet will only fit small googles, however I do not find this to be a significant issue. For a helmet of this quality, the price cannot be beaten. I highly recommend the Sonora for all dual sport riders!!!!

Comments about Shoei Hornet DS Sonora Dual-Sport Motorcycle Helmet:

I had an Arai XD but it did not fit well. Got this Shoei Hornet and it fits perfect. I definitely have a Shoei head.
Came in quick and got for best price around.
RideOn!

Becareful what you wish for

Comments about Shoei Hornet DS Sonora Dual-Sport Motorcycle Helmet:

This is a quality product at a great price. Sizing seems accurate. As stated, this is a tight fitting helmet--my checks are actually squeezed in. I wear glasses and have to put them on after the helmet goes on. I'm wearing it with the mesh chin-guard (?) on doing 25 minutes rides to work in < 20 degree morinings and my head is almost perspiring. I must flip face shield up when stopped at a traffic light. I'm still experimenting with opening the various vents provided on the helmet.
I have to believe that this helment will be too hot for 60+ degree riding unless the airflow in the helmet is very efficient--time will tell. This will be especially critical where the pads compress my cheeks.
An excellently made product if your riding style fits it use--my reason for giving it only 3 stars.

Service and delivery comments:

Good prices on quality products, and quick delivery.

  • Q:

    Do They Make an Electric Windshild for it (Cordless preferred)?

    If a company would come out with a Good Snowmobile helmet with a cordless Fog free windshield, they would make Millions.
