Shoei Hornet ADV - Plain
The Hornet ADV offers Shoei’s high levels of performance and protection with a stylish adventure design. This helmet is made from various layers of organic and multi-composite fibre to get optimum shock absorption and rigidity. The EPS foam liner has two densities for added impact absorption. Shoei’s patented Emergency Quick Release System is designed for easy removal of the helmet in the event of a crash.
The Hornet ADV will not just protect you, it will also keep you comfortable. The upper and lower air intakes work alongside the outlets on the back to filter clean air through the helmet keeping you cool. The outlets are made to then exhaust old air out of the helmet. The cheek pads are detachable and come in a variety of sizes so you can find a fit perfect for you.
For a stylish helmet that offers the performance and protection you would expect from Shoei then the Hornet ADV is right for you.

Shoei was founded in japan in 1958 and have been producing motorcycle helmets since. At the beginning the helmets produced were only for the racing sector, but then founder Eitaro Kamata made the decision to expand their horizons and in 1960 their factory in Tokyo began producing helmets which met the Japanese industrial standards allowing everyday riders to wear their helmets.
Shoei's GRV helmet was the first helmet to use carbon fibre and Kevlar. Shoei also created the first coverless shield system and the Dual Liner Ventilation system. The flagship X-Spirit was introduced in 2003 and was promoted by Shoei as the most advanced helmet in the world, winning MCN's Product of the Year 2003 award in the clothing category. It was followed by further development and the introduction of the RF-1000 (sold as the XR-1000 in Europe) in 2004, and the later introduction of the X-Eleven. These helmets paved the way for the current RF-1100 and X-Twelve models. In September 2010 the QWEST was released, the successor of the RAID II, a top of the line sport touring helmet.
The launch of the Neotec in 2012 was another milestone for Shoei - the addition of a built in sun visor , built into a second shell layer to remove the weakness inherent in adding an internal sun visor.
Shoei sponsors MotoGP riders such as Marc Marquez and Bradley Smith, and being adopted by Honda Motor Co, Shoei has gained respect from motorcycle industries. Although a very successful brand, Shoei still remains a relatively small with under 500 workers worldwide. The helmets are only produced in Japan, yet they are distributed and sold globally.
In 2013, Shoei introduced a 5 year warranty against material and manufacturing defects - all Shoei helmets sold by Infinity Motorcycles are supplied through the official channels and we're Shoei Assured dealers, so our staff are trained in fitting, maintenance and servicing of Shoei helmets and we stock a range of Shoei accessories, spares and visors in all stores.
