Competing directly with the Arai XD, Hornet DS combines both on- and off-road features to create a helmet that should be at home anywhere. Both the peak and visor are removable, meaning the Hornet DS can work with goggles or at high speeds. Shoei anticipates dirt riders will use the helmet on the way from home to trail, swapping the visor for goggles when they arrive. Lacking the extreme ventilation of most dedicated off-road helmets, this probably isn't practical. But like the Arai, this could be the ultimate helmet for riding supermotos.
