Best Helmet that I have used
Comments about Shoei Hornet DS Dual-Sport Motorcycle Helmet:
I have used a few different helmets and this by far is the best helmet that I have found for me and my head. I like the different sized cheek pads and that I can fit it to me. I like the visor and that I can open and close at a moments notice. I have always had goggle style helmets before...and I will not be going back. I wear contacts and glasses and I find this helmet supports both. I liked it the instant I put it on.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Light weight, comfortable, and well ventilated. I would have given it 5 stars, but the bill is too small to really block the sun (I'm sure this was done for better aerodynamics).

perfect dualsport helmet
Perfect for big-bore dual sport bikes, works well at speed and on easy trail riding. Only need to lift the shield for aggressive off road riding. Not perfectly quiet but no longer feel the need for ear plugs.
