Shark Evoline 3 ST Century Hi Viz Helmet
Overall, the best of both Worlds ! Full face, Open face !!!
Overall, I'd buy this Helmet again in a heart beat, regardless
of what I say next ! This helmet needs more 'refinement' !
In full face position, my right ear has considerably more WIND
noise than the left ear . Make sure you have the face shield
fully 'UP" before you bring down the full face 'chin' shield !!!
Otherwise, the chin shield will not lock [click] into place after
you 'punched' yourself in the chin shield . :-))) No, you couldn't $buy$ this Helmet off me regardless of a few short comings ! I will await patiently for SHARK to improve upon
a GREAT helmet / design !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like the versatility
Good fit and versatility. I like that I can wear as a 3/4 helmet.

Great helmet for ALL weather. I was in the mountains of NC in mid May. Cold and rainy, the full face feature worked great. A week later it's 82 degrees, flip the chin bar back and completely out of the way for a 3/4 helmet.

Excellent product for the coin.
Have been riding for several decades, and ride all year round in Texas. The helmet will be utilized all year, and will work great. It is quite simple to convert from open face to full face with the touch of a button. It is a bit heavy, but such is life, nothing extreme though; all in all, very comfortable to wear.

Overall a versatile and comfortable helmet.
This is the most versatile modular helmet I've owned. Being able to ride with the chinbar in the raised position, without any noticeable buffeting, is a great feature. Fit is a true medium, the removeable padding near the temple allows you to get a better fit for eyeglasses, and the ear pockets allow for an easy installation of a headset. The only features I am slightly critical about are the sun visor, which is not dark enough and the air flow, which is OK, but I would prefer more venting. That said, riding with the chin bar up gives you great airflow. In this position, I recommend wearing dedicated cycle glasses that block the turbulance around the eyes.

Nice option for those whol like one helmet for a variety of conditions
Purchased this helmet because it would allow me to have one nice helmet that I could wear in warm and cold environments. Also works well when it starts raining. The flip back option works well and does not cause that "air dam" effect other modulars suffer from. It's not as easy to shift it back as I would like but it works okay when you are rolling. Make sure it locks in place when you pull it back down as mine sometimes does not lock till I forcefully pop it back into the down and locked position.
I was able to put my Harley communiciation headset on it pretty easily. It works well with my radio/cb.
Overall a nice helmet with a lot of flexibility for almost all riding conditions. It's Expensive but it did allow me the ability to not have to own 2 helmets.

Maybe I'm bias but this is my 3rd Shark helmet and I feel this is the best one yet. Prior to this one I had the Shark Vision-R Series 1 loved that one but had to replace it because I damaged it from a drop. Anyways, I have been looking at buying a Evoline since 2010 but didn't because it was very round and pricey (British economy). This also is my first modular helmet. I like the flip up option, at the moment its kind of hard for me to work it. Going to take some time to get use to but having the option to flip it up when riding makes a great difference riding in this GA heat. Sun visor is in the perfect spot. You have a little wind now but that is tolerable. Great buy, now 2 guys at work are looking at buying one.
