Shark Evoline 3 ST Century Hi Viz Helmet
The features of this helment makes it very versatile.
I love the features of this helment, I especially like the option of using it as a full helment or as a 3/4 helment. The graphics look great in either position you choose to use helment. The internal sun shield is a nice feature and even works well with my glasses. I highly recomend the Shark Evo 3 helment for anyone wanting a modular helmet.

Good Modular feature
I really like the modular feature allowing to move the chin bar completely out of the way. Makes it easier to speak and ride with it open. No wind drag. The styling with it fully retracable is Cool looking. Not neardy like regular fil ups. Sunscreen is nice addition.
It is noiser than i expected butmore than bearable.
Good graphic, Hi Viz style.
Locking the chin bar takes a little geting use to.

An excellent full-protection helmet
This helmet replaced a damaged Schuberth C3. The Shark is significantly cheaper. I don't know if it is as durable as the Schubert and don't want to test it in a crash. The chin strap is the old fashioned type, thus hard to fasten with gloves on. The chin guard is tricky to pull back into position--its whole operation is complex. It has no chin curtain or padding so it is colder in the winter and cooler in the summer. I am not using the blue-tooth headphone feature.

I've had many others, this is the best so far! Pricey but do it!
Previous were Nolan and HJC.
Once you learn the closure function, its a breeze to operate. I am often adjusting the shields because I chose between city traffic and faster portions of my rides.
There is wind noise but it's not so serious or annoying. Realize that the sizing does run smaller. I usually ride a large and required an XL. Revzilla Support has been great, especially with returns!

Love the helmet because you get the best of both worlds.
Great downward visibility with the chin bar out of the way if you use a tankbag GPS.
Should have gone for the XL because the large is a tight fit. I'm usually between a large and X-large.

Bang for the buck. Great interior. Would definitely recommend.

Good helmet but...
- comfortable liner
- speaker pockets
- decent styling
- ease of use of the chin bar
- can ride with the chin bar back.
- Construction could be better (mine came with the chin vent trim loose at the bottom of the bag; had to glue it on)
- Weight shift with chin bar back.
- Big shell
- sun visor cutaway not deep enough
Coming from high end sport helmets, I'm not too sure I like my new Shark that much. If you really want a flip helmet, that's most likely one of the best out there. Personally I think I'll keep using my Full face or pull my AGV Dragon out of the side case when I want some wind on my face.

2 Weeks in and so far so good
Love the full flip chin bar (which is main reason I bought this helmet). Not quite as easy to flip open and close one handed while riding as I had anticipated but not impossible either. I bought this helmet as soon as it was available in U.S. after reading European reviews. I wasn't sure what to expect since no dealers carry the Shark brand anywhere nearby. Only have 2 weeks of daily commute riding experience with this helmet so far but so far there are no unpleasant surprises. Weight is slightly more than non-modular (as expected) but well balanced. Quality, fit and finish seem to be on par with others in the same price range. Noise level is about the same as my previous Shoei RF-1000 helmet which was mid level (not too loud but not quiet either). Haven't ridden through rain yet so I can't review that part. Only complaints I have so far are that I had to tear apart the lower side a bit to make my Scala Rider G4 communication system fit (the bottom of the helmet doesn't have enough space to fit the system without ripping the seams). And that while the helmet looks normal sitting on a desk, for some reason it looks huge when put it on my head (it fits perfectly, just looks HUGE compared to other helmets) ... as my friend said, I look like Lord Dark Helmet from the Spaceballs movie. Other than that everything is to my liking and I would recommend this helmet to anyone.
