Great Alternative to Full Face
All is good with this helmet.
One minor item, for me, it's too round.
The Sun Visor's nose cut out could be a little bigger or higher.
It touches my nose with full on wind.
I'll use a Dremel to make better clearance.
Other than that a GREAT fit & Helmet.
In store sales was a great help!

Innovative but with issues
Shark Evoline Hakka Helmet: With over 500 miles on this helmet I was hoping that the pads would break in and give me some relief from the pressure on my cheeks and forehead. Alas, it has not. Using the sizing chart I got the XL to fit my massive 7 5/8" noggin but wish now I'd gotten an XXL. The fact that lowering the chin bar to the full-face position squeezes the cheeks together makes it even more painful. The cheeks were bad enough but this past weekend I started to lose feeling in my forehead from the pressure.
Another issue is that a 3" crack appeared on the chin piece running forward from the left hinge. It doesn't appear to affect the operation of the chin bar but is dissappointing in such a pricey helmet. No, it wasn't dropped or otherwise abused.
It's a bit heavy compared to my Vega Summit 3.0 #which is WAY more comfortable BTW# and quieter and feels to be a more solid piece of gear. Too bad it's too painful to wear.

1000 mi review in cold wet weather.
FIrst off I'm not a round head shape and this helmet fits round this could lead to more than avg.wind noise issues I have had. A helmet needs to fit proper for the details to come into place imho. However the padding is thick and accommodates to some degree.
On plus side the helmet is fairly easy to use with flip back chin bar and saves you from having to remove your helmet when you stop to chat for a minute or fill up and pay inside or grab a drink or quick snack. It flows a lot of air with the chin bar up.
One the negative side this helmet is noisy,it leaks a lot of air around the chin and past your neck with the chin bar down. Fogging was never an issue but a frozen face in cold weather (40's) was common due to infiltration past the chin bar.
My biggest complaint however is the visor. First off the grab spot is the top of the visor this takes some getting used to. The detents do a really poor job and if you crack the visor it flutters really bad making it not only annoying but vision problems though shield are a hazard. I don't get how the Shark pro-r can have the very good visor and this one is worst I have ever used. The sun shield does a decent job but when you put it in the furthest down position there is a spot dead center top that becomes very visible and annoying to look at however it comes down fairly far which is good.
All and all I'm glad I got a good deal from Revzilla and great customer service,but truth be told I'm not really happy with the purchase. Shark has a ways to go in refining modular helmets. The elliptical hinge is on the right track but the rest needs some serious thought in shell shape and visor design.

Looks good however very poor quaility.
Looks great, love the features and is very comfortable. Sun visor lever broke during first ride. The Sun visor falls down over every bump. When I took a look there was no screw attaching the lever to the sun visor, they must have missed that during their quality control checks. The clips that attach lower chin bar to helmet are weak plastic tabs. There is a small amount of play in the lower chin bar when it is secured in the "full face" mode. I do not expect this helmet to last very long. The concept of this helmet is amazing and I had high expectations however SHARK needs to pay way more attention to quality. I would return this helmet if it were not for the cross country trip I am leaving on in the next few days.

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.
