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.

Whistling noise driving me mad
This is almost a great helmet. Unfortunately there is a loud whistling noise coming from the right side of the helmet between 20-60mph. After 60mph the general wind noise drowns out the whistle. Even without the whistle this is a noisy helmet.

Funny fit but lots of cool features
I have a round head and this helmet doesn't fit very well. Also the cheek pads rather high on your cheeks rather than lower near the jaw. The ventilation is not great and the noise from the chin bar hinges makes it relatively loud. I did recommend it however because of the flip back chin bar that makes riding on hot days quite nice, the tinted visor extends low for great sun blocking and I thought it might be flimsy but its pretty sturdy.

Great concept with a few issues
Love the concept of this helmet as a year round versatile product. It is a little heavy and larger than some helmets. Doesn't bother me, but the same helmet on my wife is more awkward. She also has some issues with her glasses fitting inside the pads and we have already downsized the pads (FYI- Shark does offer smaller pads and in order to do this you actually go the opposite direction of your helmet size. Theory is that the bigger your head (or pads that are too big, need more space and therefore a M would order pads for an XL as an example). The versatility of being able to put the full face away by simply bringing it back over the helmet is brilliant. I usually ride with the open face but anyone else's helmet trying to do the same thing looks like a C-5 Cargo plane and shouldn't be ridden that way. The main gripe I have about this helmet is the air vent on my forehead has stitching that feels like little pins getting stuck in my head and occasionally gives me a headache. I have taken to wetting a paper towel to cover the vent but hey, this is a $500 helmet so it should be putting a compress on me!
