Shark Evoline 3 ST Hakka Helmet
Good fit, true to size.
Sun visor could be a bit close for those with a larger nose.
Very happy with this helmet.

Better than series 2 but not by much
Looks the same as the series 2 and fits about the same too, I had to remove the rubber pad that is under the lining as it was to tight on my forehead, did the same with the series 2. The weight is a bit less and the sun shield doesn't seem to get scratched by rubbing on the helmet as before. Venting is about the same, but if it's hot you can just flip up the chin bar and get a lot of air, one of the reasons to buy a helmet of this type. I really like the fact that the chin bar goes all the way to the back getting out of the air flow and making for a really slick looking helmet. Overall a nice up-grade from the series 2 and highly recommended.

attractive and comfortable
my first shark helmet, my first full face helmet. very comfortable and i really like the graphics, paint on the helmet. very snug, had to remove cheek pieces to wear sun glasses but the installed sun shield works so well don't need to wear sunglasses so reinstalled the pieces, which is easy to do. i would say that this helmet would easily be comparable to any high end helmet that costs twice as much. thats why i give it 5 stars for bang for the buck. and the innovative modular design is excellent, nothing else like it.

Excellent Mod features!
Purchased the Shark Evoline for the ability to change the dynamics of the helmet at the pump or for a quick talk. It does fit a little loose and is heavier than others, but modular helmets generally are. The wind noise is apparent but easily taken care of with earplugs. Louder than my full-face, quieter than my open face, but I love the fact that it is eyeglass friendly!!
For the closeout purchase price, it can’t be beat! If you are purchasing at new price, be aware that the noise and extra weight might be slight factors for you.

Great product with great features
I have had several modular full face helmets but the Shark Evoline is the best by far. Light weight compared to the Suomy D20 which ended up being a piece of junk. I would recommend this helmet to all riders.

Light and functional, for me too noisy!
After a big crash last year and breaking my BMW System6 helmet, I read safety tests and decided to buy Shark Evoline hiviz. Almost everything is OK with this helmet (sizing, functions, design, etc.) except its noise level that I can not get accustomed to. I love music, but this constant fluting (at speeds above 100 km/hour) in my left ear is annoying. After 6 months (15k kms) I gave up, I return to system6 evo, in spite of painful costs.

2nd Helmet I've owned
I needed something for her as her eyes would water on the back of my wing. I looked for several weeks and was unindated with helmet info. I came across Anthony's review of the Shark Helment so I bought two, one for me and one for her. The modular design was "new" to me. I like to versatility of open or closed w/the chin bar. Bar up there is good airflow, chin bar and visor down it is very warm inside when it is cool outside...that was awesome..kept my head warm for the trip home. This is not inexpensive but I believe is a good value. I do recommend this product

Overall this helmet is well made and it looks better than any other flip up helmet. It is a bit narrow for my head, I hope that the padding will settle down with time.
I'd given the helmet 5 stars if it had a Pinlock compatible shield and a ratchet lock instead of the old D-rings. The spares are quite expensive- a shield is $65, more than even a fancy Arai shield with vents.
