Shoei Dual Sport Motorcycle Helmet,Today we're talking versatility. Dual sport motorcycles like the Kawasaki KLR 650 and adventure touring motorcycles like the BMW GS are versatile. They eat up chunks of pavement like a street bike yet have the ability to take on the dirt as well. The riders of these bikes need versatile gear that is up to the variety of riding situations that these bikes afford.

The Shoei Hornet DS helmet is the embodiment of versatility. It can literally be three completely different helmets. First, the helmet can be worn with both the visor and shield in place, which is its true middle ground. In this setup, the Hornet DS is a compromise between a pure dirt and pure street helmet. In another variation, it can be worn with just the visor (and either a pair of glasses or goggles). This configuration places it at the dirt end of the riding spectrum. The third option is to wear the helmet without the visor, but with the shield in place. This makes the helmet suitable for high speed street duty.

This is a chameleon helmet in the best sense of the word. It converts to suit virtually any riding situation that a rider will face. Again, we're talking versatility. It does all of this while retaining the Shoei reputation for fit, finish, and safety.
