Awesome I got this helmet as a birthday gift after sitting on my wishlist for a long time. The build quality, attention to detail and versatility on this thing is amazing and on par if not better than the usual high end brands out there. In Street configuration, with the shield on, it is super quiet and everything works really well. With the goggles on it does get a bit noisy but nothing unbearable. The integrated sun visor, the wind/rain gator all work very well and I can say that it is the most comfortable helmet I've ever worn. The one single issue with this helmet is airflow. For some reason the vents don't work that well which is something I can live when I'm on the move during hot summer days. You can't use the face shield with the beak/top visor by the way. It looks quite radical as well! I'd recommend it. July 2, 2014
Fantastic all in one helmet I've been researching dual sport helmets for some time now and came across this one and was sold. I have a 58cm, intermediate oval head shape which the sizing chart said was the largest head size for the medium which was dead on. Fantastic fit and finish in my opinion. All the vent switches and sun shade knob work very smoothly. A great feature is the visor defogging lever that pops up the visor (when using the included visor) by a few millimetres instead of using the first detent position. It also has ample room for the speakers from a communications device of which I'm using an Interphone FX4 XT although Shark has partnered with Interphone to offer a helmet specific unit that allows for the battery to be nicely hidden withing the back of the helmet. I have not ridden with the helmet yet as my BMW is still on order but with what seems to be an exceptional seal using the visor and also the perfect fit of the included goggles, I expect it will be quieter than most. I found this helmet even more comfortable than the Arai XD4. The only drawback I have found, and knew before I purchased, is that you cannot run with the visor and peek at the same time although there is a YouTube video out there showing someone has figured out how to do so. Switching from goggle w/peek mode to Hwy visor mode is a breeze. Looks absolutely awesome in person and super comfortable with the bamboo infused liner. The inner vent channels are deep and run the length of the helmet so cooling shouldn't be an issue. Great buy! June 23, 2014

rami h: A versatile badass helmet.. Got to get it.. :) Dec 10, 2013
A shopper asked: Is there an approximate ship date yet ? and what sort of head shape do the Shark helmets have ?

Looking forward to some more details on this helmet and a video review.
I'm hoping there are plenty of inner and outer face-shield options available at launch and that the helmet is setup for a lightweight/stealthy comm. system.

Roger L: yeah me too - online stores in Germany have the White One (the only other colour currently available). They were going to take too long to ship to Australia, so I went with the Carbon one.

Pity, because the White looks awesome and is safer on the road...

Scott S: it does in Europe.. probably colors and graphics, eventually... Shark very slow importing into the US :( Where the heck are the Shark Nano helmets? The Nano, Vantime and Vancore are available in Europe... probably will only see the Nano this summer... Jun 8, 2014

Stan H asked: Can you get different sizes for the cheek pads and head liner to accommodate and adjustable fit? Jul 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Roger L: You should be able to. The shell is shared with the Vision-R. But the Bamboo Liner I believe is unique at the moment to the Explore-R.

If the Vision-R has different cheek pads you'll be ok

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David Y: I've seen in another video that the peak attaches using the same mechanism as the visor so it would appear that you cannot use both the shield and peak at the same time. Would love to be wrong about this though. Mar 31, 2014
Reply to David Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Kyle M: Correct, you can only use the peak with the goggles. However if you have the shield on then you can use the hidden drop-down internal sunshield. May 24, 2014

jason j asked: Just wondering the quality of the shark product. Where does it fall inline with the Dual Sport helmet review you did (ie. above agv ax8 below ds hornet)? Also as far as sizing I fall right in-between a Lg and Xl which way should I go with this one (60.5cm)?

Thanks

Roger L: I also have an Arai XD-4 - there's no question that this is lighter, and easier to swap out visor etc. Also the neck rain protector is a nice feature (gimmick? I don't know yet).

The visibility without goggles is unbelievable. You literally have no helmet in your vision. It's like not wearing a helmet.

My SENA is much louder in the Shark. In fact hardly audible in the Arai.

That said, you can get Arai's in loads of colours including high vis and white. And there is nothing more comfortable on the head than the XD4. I don't have to unbend my ears when donning like on all my sharks. The Arai is also a quieter helmet for wind noise. I reckon it will be better for breathing as the jaw guard is further from your mouth.

I ended up getting this because I have Torque HD Goggles that were uncomfortable on the Arai. In testing I discovered how light this helmet is. I'm about to test it in the Himalayas

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Roger L: Sharktooth - which I believe is an OEM Blueant.

Stick with the Sena - SMH10 rocks. The S20 will be even better :-)

A shopper asked: 1: can you get a pinlock shield?
2: if the goggles are proprietary, how much are replacements? As goggles wear out frequently.

Roger L: Vision-R shield, so yes

I'm struggling to find a replacement. I use normal goggles with it, but I do want to change the straps to the Shark straps for quick release. For that I need spares...

Anthony? Brian?

A shopper asked: Got to tell you lads, been waiting for this review for months. Have just arrived down-under.

2 Questions for you Hi-Vis Brian......

1) Can these be fitted with a "Pin-Lock?"
2) Can you do HWY speeds (60mph) with the goggles rather than the visor?

Cheers in advance.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Roger L: 1) Yes - get the Vision-R shield with Pin lock
2) Yes - In fact I found the helmet buffets less with the peak than without (!!) I know right. I've had this up to 80mph with the Goggles and Peak
