Shark Evoline 3 ST Hakka Helmet
This SHARK can swim with the best of them!
I have used the Evoline Series 2 since 2010 with a large touring motorcycle and I continue to enjoy it. I am in the process of getting a smaller touring motorcycle and I wanted another SHARK for the new bike. The Evoline Series 3 helmet had the features that I got accustomed to on the older model and the new helmet had the colors that I wanted so I bought it. I also got the SHARKTOOTH feature accessory so I can connect wirelessly into a bluetooth device. I like the SHARK helmet designs and they work well for me. If you want to investigate a convertible helmet for touring use or sport touring then I would recommend investigating the SHARK as a good possibility.

I like it
I've been looking for a modular with a chinbar that goes all the way to the rear, completely out of the wind, for years. This is it.
It's fairly quiet, but you can get quieter. It's fairly comfortable, but it's a little shorter front to back and looser side to side than' I'd like.
Ventilation is adequate, no complaints as long as I'm moving. If I'm on city streets with frequent stop lights, the chin bar goes to the back, and I wear it 3/4.
The cheek pads are a little obtrusive, and I can't get the helmet on without taking my glasses off. Might take the cheek pads out if I can't get used to them. They're removable, so that's a plus.
But regardless of these things, there is not a whole lot of choice when it comes to a fully convertible 3/4 to full face. If that's what you're looking for, don't let perfection stand in the way of "good enough".

Only convertible choice
I wish they had a competitor. Not sure why no other helmet manufacture does this. I only wish they would make a XXL. For me the helmet is way to small. I had to do some (not recommended) modifications to make it fit. But if I want a helmet that can be ridden as a 3/4 or Full I have no choice. They have said they are coming out with a XXL.. but they said that over 2 years ago. So, now I'm not so sure that will ever happen (since the USA is at best a secondary market for them and apparently only the USA has fat-heads). But, I'm still a customer and I will be again and again until someone else decided to compete in this area.

Two helmets for the price of one.
I like the way this helmet can be used as a full face and 3/4 helmet. I love it. The integrated sun visor keeps me from having to fumble with sun glasses, and makes it easy to ride on paths with shade and sun.

This helmet is a great all around helmet.
This helmet has great functionality. I have truly enjoyed the 3/4 ability and have also enjoyed being able to utilize the fill face feature while on the interstate. This is a great all around helmet. I would highly recommend it to any one considering a modular helmet.

Love the convertible!
This helmet is very comfortable and sizing is accurate. I love the ability to fully open the helmet for riding around town and at slower speeds. I have not tried any of the shark bluetooth products in the helmet, but I like that it is set up to handle. I also like the removable pads at the temples to allow for glasses. Great features!

I purchased the EVO3 because a friend let me try his. The older models seem to run on the small side but the new EVO3 fits closer to normal. I wear a XL and i nwas able to wear his large, it was too tight, but I expected that. I ride about 20,000 miles a year and this helmet, with the light weight and added features I think I am going to be extreamly pleased. Simply having the chin bar out of the wind when not in use should help with neck strain.

Great Features with a few problems!
I bought this helmet since the chin bar rotated back. I didn't want to buy 2 different helmets for riding. This is the same helmet as the Harley FXRG at a better price. I have the J&M 787 Elite wired head set installed. I would give it 5 stars if the chin went to place easier and face shied didn't leak.
Pros: Easy to convert to open face, Little wind noise
Cons: Bring the chin bar back and locking into place is a choir, I ride in rainy conditions and it leaks down the inside of face shield. It will fog up and in cooler weather so I have to ride with it cracked open. No pin lock system made for it.
