Shark Evoline 3 ST Moovit Lumi Helmet
Wind noise/buffeting is noticeable at highway speeds with chin bar down. Not as bad with bar rotated to rear position. Sun shield works great, clear shield has nice view. Not a lot of ventilation with the chin bar down, very warm. Basically I ride mostly with the chin bar rotated back, I could have spent a lot less on a 3/4 helmet. But I wanted the versatility of a modular helmet. Followed the fitting instructions and the fit is fine.

I'm exceptionally glad I chose this helmet as my first helmet! I decided to go with the modular shark (and this helmet specifically) because of the sheer versatility. This helmet allows me to "legally" ride open face (as opposed to other modular helmets which aren't designed to ride open face)... so really, I get two helmets in one. I live in Washington, so I haven't had any problems with helmet temperature (seeing as if it's "hot" I can ride open face) and if it's rainy I can close it up. The built in sun visor is a life savor as well! Love it!
Only minor complaints: it lets in a little bit of rain in between the visor area and helmet (under HEAVY rain conditions- again, I live in Seattle, Washington- so most people won't have a problem with heavy rain on the freeway at 65mph ish)... using the drop down sun visor in addition helped with the rain problems. Other complaint is it's a little large looking. But for the versatility, a little sacrifice is ok for super small aesthetics, right? (comfort & versatility vs. looks)...
Great helmet! I'm curious how it would hold up in a warmer climate, but it's great in Washington so far this spring/summer!
If you're looking for versatility, this helmet is perfect!

Best Helmet in my Collection
This is the best helmet I own due to its' versatility. At low speed around town the chin bar goes back all the way and stays there comfortably. At high speed on the highway the chin bar comes forward and makes a full face helmet. It's like have a normal open face helmet and a full face helmet in one. The glow is pretty cool and increases visibility especially when riding during the afternoon right into evening dusk and night. The bright afternoon sun charges the phosphorous enough to have it visible during dusk and it lasts into the beginning part of night when visibility is lowest. Anything to stand out at that time of the evening is great. Overall a fantastic buy even if it is a little expensive.

The reviews said the helmet runs a little large. I'd say thats not the case. LG helmets are just a little to small for me and XL helmets just a bit too big. So reading that they run large I figured I'd be good with a LG helmet (also measured my head and used the chart) and its just a little too small. I'd say go with the size you normally have.
The Helmet is awesome, Love the flip back feature (lets me drink my coffee on the way to work in the morning) the style and shape of the helmet is excellent. the fact that I can keep the clear shield and the shaded one even in full face mode is a huge plus for me. I do a lot of cross country riding and you never know when you will run into rain, wind or just plain cold weather (MT passes ect) so its nice to be able to go into full face mode when I need it, instead of changing helmets or just suffering through.
Highly recommend this helmet to any kind of bike you may be riding.

Perfect for road trips or for those who likes a more sportive visual when totally closed as a full helmet and confortable when opened as an open face helmet to use in the city traffic. However, for a helmet with its level of finishing and technology, its incomprehensible the fact it comes without an antifog protection on its visor.

Shark Evoline 3
The only thing I could recommend is sealing the helmet with a clear coat just to prevent dings and scratches. Other then that there are no issues that keep me from wearing this helmet everytime i ride.

Easy swap from Full Face to Open Face
The first one of these I got was too small so I up sized to an XL. I also purchased the Sharktooth Bluetooth and the system is awesome. I can listen to music and with the Iphone-5 I can use voice commands for navigation and such. Music is great up to and most likely exceeding 120mph. Switching form full face to open is simple; read the instructions though - you need to pull the chin out a bit when pressing the button. When in full face the helmet seems very sturdy. It's nice to be able to switch to open face when you roll into a town or get into slow traffic. Your not supposed to switch over when rolling but it's so simple why not. The sun visor has saved me a few times already as I really don't like riding with sun glasses. Overall it's a winner.

This product has everything you need
This product was bought for the wife. She got it in and said she loved it. She needed a small and it fits snugly. The one thing I would say I did not like about it was that it looked a bit bobble headish probably due to a small and all the extra padding to make it a small. I do not think they have extra shells for different sizes probably different inserts. All and all a great product.
