Shark Evoline 3 ST Hakka Helmet
I love the looks of this helmet. Add that to the only helmet with a true modular design and you have something great.

The features on the Evoline 3 are outstanding.
The helmet feels snug when you first put it on, but after about 5 minutes it gives you a secure feeling. The helmet can be configured to suit your preference ... open face, closed, visor up or down, and sun shade up or down.

I really did expect the noise level to be much lower. Its not as loud with the helmet configured in the full position, but just a little. Iʻm very upset about the way the d-ring sits up against my trachea. Theres no darn way iʻd of paid ten dollars to feel like theres a two year old on my back gettin a horsey ride hanging on cuz thats just fun. Its real annoying, iʻve compensated by just not cinching down on the tightness as much and it helps. But had i been able to try it on first, no way would i have purchased it for that reason alone. Its like the factory ran out of the correct size attatchments or the moron assembling it grabbed the strap that goes on the xxl model and attatched it to my small. Insert four letter word here. Iʻm done with the negatives. The possitives iʻve found is that the shape is terrific, iʻm very happy with the shape; my previous helmet was round. The built in sun visor is nice and iʻm happy that its easy to flip between the two configurations.

No as great as I expected.
Unfortunately, within the first two weeks I had it the shade visor on the inside snapped lose and would not retract. I literally slid it up and down less then 20 times before it broke. I sent it back and I'm looking for something else.

Great style, great Helmet
The Hakka Helmets are, for my taste, the best modulars out there, I own the Hakka gloss (for my wife) and the hakka mate for me, we couldn't be happier, I hope I never have to test it on a crash, but it feels secure, the aerodynamics are excellent with very little to no movement and the modular feature and field of vision is way above average, the shape is a little round so purchase your exact size.

outstanding in every way. Just don't expect ANY airflow through the provided vents... maybe a whisper through the top. Do you need them? of course you don't. I was able to ride at full highway speeds with the jaw closed, visor open OR the jaw open, visor down. Even the jaw and visor both open and the sunglasses down worked beautifully. Comfortable, DOT/ECE certified (in open and closed form). buy it.

Great multi purpose helmet
I have only worn the helmet twice so far on two rides but have been pleased with it so far. It's easy to flip the chin bar from the top of the helmet to the full face mode on the fly. It's a little tight to get on but comfortable when its on. I suspect that it will loosen up just enough as it is worn. Very pleased with the product so far and will be wearing it on a long ride soon.

Best Features and Looks All in One
Fist helmet purchase. Went back and forth on many. I have a round head. This helmet was the best fitting. Also had the best looks for me. Fell in love with the modular flip back behind head feature. No other helmet has this option to go full open face without a sail on top of your head.
The helmet is awesome looking, comfortable to wear and definitely not as sound proof as Shoei and doesn't not have the full chin curtain cushioning of a Shoei, however, it's not deafening when riding. I've done 90 with the helmet and its fine. Noisy, yes a bit, but absolutely tolerable and near plugs needed.
The sun visor is perfect and natural venting not so great, but crack the face shield or lift open the chin bar and you have instant venting.
If you like this helmet, BUY IT! Can't go wrong.
