Shoei Hornet DS
Cant say I have ever posted a thread before but had to mention this helmet. Just got my first duel purpose bike and my AGV was looking a bit tired and unsafe after 2 years of everyday/all weather riding.
I had never spent more than £150 on a helmet but made the fatal mistake of trying on the Shoei Hornet DS. What a difference this lid makes and after eating from the supermarket benefits buffet for a while, saved up and bought one. There are loads of reviews so I wont bore you any longer but this is the most comfortable lid I have ever tried on. Peak helps with the sun and not too much wind lift, although you can take it off. Feels well made and instills confidence that if I should fall off it will protect me very well. Venting is a dream and the pinlock is incredible, even in torrential rain (I live near Whitley Bay) it never fogs. No gripes at all apart from helmet hair tramlines due to the liner although I quite like the Kryten from red dwarf look.
If you are in the market for a new lid, stay in one Saturday night and put the money saved towards one of these.
PS, Matt Grey looks cool and brings out the bags under my eyes.
