OFF-ROAD HELMET

HORNET ADV

"HORNET ADV", SUH-Sport Utility Helmet, New Category Created by SHOEI

The strength and functionality which enable a riding in a cross-country, and the stylishness and comfort which are necessary for a riding on road lightly are united, and HORNET ADV, Sport Utility Helmet, which realizes "the sporty riding in every scene" is born merging powerfulness and functionality required in cross country and stylishness and comfort essential for on road riding.
It was developed for sporty performance in any road or circumstance based on the concept of SUH.
Pursued improvement in every element without compromise, such as newly developed V-460 visor suitable for a riding in a cross-country, aerodynamic and ventilation performances which are essential for on road riding as well as usability is realized in HORNET ADV, a multipurpose helmet for sport riding.

Main Characteristics

V-460 Visor

V-460 Visor

Newly Designed V-460 Visor with Aerodynamic Performance and Functionality

Based on data from repeated wind tunnel experiments, V-460 visor exclusively for HORNET ADV is completed as a result of pursuing aerodynamic performance and functionality. Maintaining traditional functions of visor such as sun shading and a splash-guard, an innovated wedge shape with vent louvers passes an air rearward and restrains an air resistance without reducing sun shading performance, and furthermore, leads an air to air intake efficiently. It realizes high aerodynamic performance in a visor and minimizes a load on a rider. Not only performance but also functionality is pursued. Newly introduced quick release screw in both sides of a visor can be removed by rotating 90 degrees. A visor which can be removed easily without special tools enables smooth fixing or removing of a shield.

Shield System

Innovated Shield System – for Smooth Fixing or Removing and Comfortable Riding

CNS-2 shield newly developed exclusively for HORNET ADV and injection molded using tough polycarbonate secures high rigidity. CNS-1 shield base is adopted abolishing traditionally used screws. Not only it enables easy fixing and removing of a shield by one touch but also its spring mechanism realizes close contact of a shield and a window beading to improve airtightness. A rib in the upper part of a shield improves rigidity of a shield and restrains twisting of a shield while it is opened or closed. Moreover, repeated studies of curvature of a shield realized clear vision without distortion.

CNS-2 Shield

CNS-2 Shield
PINLOCK® EVO lens can be fixed. An area of CNS-2 PINLOCK® EVO lens is increased approximately by 37% compared with that of C-49 PINLOCK® lens used for HORNET-DS. In order to secure upper vision and cover larger area of a shield, PINLOCK® EVO lens is enlarged just near to an upper end of a shield. A larger vision is maintained even under an extreme weather condition.

An eye port of HORNET ADV fits to goggles for off road riding (left). Furthermore, goggles can be fit even when a shield is fully opened (right).

Standardized PINLOCK® EVO lens

In every situation, PINLOCK® EVO lens protects a vision and supports a rider

Riders sometimes face severe conditions such as rain and low temperature etc. Securing a view in any conditions ensures a rider's safety. PINLOCK® EVO lens evolved from PINLOCK® lens in improved mist retardant performance is standardized with HORNET ADV. PINLOCK® EVO lens avoids fogging of a shield ensuring a more comfortable riding in various scenes.

PINLOCK® EVO lens whose anti-fog performance is 2.5 times of former product is standerdized.

Result of Test pursuant to ECE R22/05
PINLOCK® EVO lens with improved mist retardant preformance by about 2.5 times (in-house measurement) compared with a conventional PINLOCK® lens is standardized in HORNET ADV. A laser beam is transmitted to a sample set in saturated vapor of 50 degrees. Time from initial transmittance ratio to its 80% is measured.

Completely New Aerodynamic Shape Realizing Combination of Design and Performance

Pursuit of an aerodynamic performance which influences a rider directly through repeated wind tunnel experiments and riding tests realized an aerodynamic shape of HORNET ADV. Not only a shape of a spoiler in a rear head area but also a wedge shaped V-460 visor improved aerodynamic performance of both shell and visor and secures a high stability even in a high speed riding and minimizes rider's fatigue. Moreover, for a dual sport full face model which essentially equips many parts such as a visor and a shield, a balance while riding is also important because it is directly related to a rider's burden. HORNET ADV is designed for an aerodynamic characteristic and fitting to enhance a light feeling in riding to the utmost level.

Interiors

Firm Hold and Comfortable Fit in Various Scenes

The best fitting of a helmet is one of essential factors to realize a comfortable riding. HORNETADV introduces 3D interiors and gives comfortable fit and proper hold without adding thickness or tightness unnecessarily.

HORNET ADV is equipped with ear pads which are removable and can adjust a space around ears. An area to fix ear pads is punching processed so that sound may not echo inside a helmet even when ear pads are removed.

Pads of polyurethane foams in different hardness are used to avoid a load to a temple caused by a frame of glasses and realize a comfortable fit even while wearing glasses.

Emergency Quick Release System

In an accident it is difficult for a third party to remove a helmet from a rider. Although impact-absorbing performance and comfort are essential for a helmet, it is also one of important functions of a helmet to support a relief work in such an emergency. E.Q.R.S. ,Emergency Quick Release System, developed by SHOEI makes removing of a helmet easy minimizing a load on a rider's neck by simply pulling ribbon.

*When removing cheek pads for a usual maintenance, do not use E.Q.R.S. tabs.

Pull Out Red Ribbon
Hang a finger on a red ribbon and draw out a cheek pad.
*Please do not use E.Q.R.S. when you remove a sheek pad for the usual maintenance.
