Shark Evoline 3 ST Century Hi Viz Helmet (Size XS Only)
Best feature is converting from full face to 3/4!
This is a very comfortable helmet. The key selling point for me was the chin bar fully rotating to make a full face into a 3/4 helmet! Having ridden for 20+ years in a half helmet it was hard to commit to a full face again, but this works well with communication system and light weight enough to be comfortable riding all day. I mostly ride in the 3/4 position, but when the temp drops it is nice to close it down to cut the wind. I would recommend this helmet!

IT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED.
I CAN RIDE WITH HELMET OPEN AND THE VISOR CLOSED, WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH THE OTHER IDENTICAL HELMETS

Everyone looks at you!
The design is just great, everyone likes it and is quite confortable to wear the chin up, the only drawback is the noise and the high amount of air that get's inside from the chin part of the helmet, still a great helmet and i wear it all the time.

Good modular helmet
That a really nice modular helmet, light and confortable. Stable in high speeds and good to use opened in low speeds.

Very Good Helmet
Had an Evoline2 before this and the Evoline3 is far better than the 2. Had problems with the 2 in the visor opening and closing was hard and once I lubricated it then it was too lose and wind buffeting adjusted it. Then it broke, hence the new helmet.
However being able to change from open-face to full-face is so good it was worth trying the 3 and I'm glad i did. I normally ride open faced and having a high safety rating with an open helmet is unusual. Being able to close the helmet in bad weather and heavy traffic is also gold. The 3 has fixed most of my irritations from the 2
The helmets (2 &3) a bit noisy on the open road but my bikes unfaired and a fairing would change this I think.
Overall I really rate these helmets for the type of riding I do, mainly day long rides and long distance.

A modular helmet that has been "finished".
I've used modular helmets before but it always seemed a bit unfinished.
Evoline 3 goes that extra step to make it function fully as a three quarter helmet on the fly.
I don't use it has modular too often because I like the safety of a full faced helmet but I do use it that way when stuck in traffic or going slowly around time during summer.
I had to get some thinner cheek pads to accommodate my face. As a reference Arai RX-Q and Corsair V fits extremely comfortably for me. Shoei RF 1200 fits too narrow for me in the head.
Excellent fit and finish. High visibility (this graphic). Nice sporty shape. A big thumbs up.

It's impossible to wear at any speed as an open face with the visor up as it simply rattles/vibrates. I have a Shoei J-cruise and theres absolutely no rattle with the visor up.
Locking the chin bar in place whilst riding is tricky. I need to sort of contort my chin before pushing into my face otherwise it will not lock. However whilst stationary with 2 hands its not a problem, but that kind of defeats the whole point of the design.
Finally my Harley ear phones just don't fit (there's just not a big enough recess) and Harley even sell this model badged as their top of the range FXRG model!!! It's crazy!
I've just done a 1200 mile 4 day trip around northern France and would have liked to have worn the Shark, but stuck to my Shoei as I couldn't face the noise and discomfort, sadly.
The Evoline is heading in the right direction in terms of design but a Mk IV or V might cure some of these basic design issues.
