Shark Race-R Pro Kimbo Helmet

The new, high-end SHARK Race-R Pro is constructed from carbon/aramid fibers, was initially developed for Shark's top level racers: Moto GP, WSBK, Moto 2…. Can you imagine the level of requirement these riders have? Shark therefore had to ensure top level performance, giving the utmost importance to functionality and ergonomics: lightness, stability, comfort, precision and aerodynamics. Because the requirement from top racers is two-fold: safety and leading-edge technology. Shark must protect in critical situations, and must also contribute to their riding performance. The Shark Race-R Pro gives you the same level of excellence as it does to elite riders.

Shark's mantra is simple, "Just race! We care about the rest."

The Race Pro-R is Shark's new high end composite fiber helmet. Totally designed through a reverse engineering process, the Race-R Pro has been developed from technical data as close as possible from human head specifications. Shark has therefore taken into account your own constraints before considering its own. From the very first track tests, riders have acknowledged its stability, even above 300 km/h, its comfort and the precision of the wide angle vision field as well as its optical distortion-free shield.

"The Race R PRO concentrates all what I am looking for in a helmet when riding my bike. In fact, it contributes to my riding performance." Randy de Puniet, June 22nd, 2012.

Thanks to wind tunnel testing, Shark has minimized unpleasant cyclonic airflows on the Race R Pro by adding a double blade spoiler. Result = Stability. The Race R Pro ventilation system is a synthesis of the most efficient ventilation:

  • 4 air scoops: chin (with integrated anti-pollution air filter) + front + 2 top vents
  • 7 extractors
  • 3 possible positions: closed, intermediate, fully open
  • Optimization of venturi effect thanks to Formula1 wind tunnel testing


  • Carbon/Aramid Fiber shell
  • Sharktooth-ready
  • Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-fitted system to accommodate all types of glasses
  • Spoiler CFD
  • 2 shell sizes
  • Double D chin strap
  • Magnetic chin strap end
  • 4 anchor points for main shield
  • 4 air flow points with optimized venturi efficiency
  • Shield has variable density: minimum thickness 3mm, maximum thickness 4.25mm, with new anti-scratch/anti-fog coating
  • Thermo shaped comfort lining
  • Removable and washable antibacterial liner
  • Cheek pads are interchangeable for custom fit
  • Neck roll with neoprene sections for elasticity and water resistance
  • Breath guard with new attachment system
  • Chin curtain
  • Approximate Weight from: 1650 g + / – 50 g in size Large
  • ECE 22.05 and DOT approved

Just what I was looking for. I was determined to get this helmet by any means possible once I tried my buddy's helmet. Good luck finding one to purchase in your local area, if I remember correctly there is only one authorized distributer in the states. Yeah sure the helmet is a bit pricey, but so is your head. If you are looking for a helmet there is no excuse to not get the maximum protection. I love this helmet, it's super light weight, aerodynamic, quite and comfortable. Once it's time to get a new helmet I'm buying this exact same one again. RevZilla had the best price listed and shipped quickly. June 30, 2014
All Objectives Met My first new helmet in years. I wanted safety and protection first, then style. What I got was a secure fit, great ventilation, a terrific 'optically correct' face shield and I love the fact that the helmet was built to accommodate wearing glasses. Then there is the style...incredibly sharp! June 16, 2014
Shark Race R Pro motorcycle helmet XL NEW RACE-R Sweet Sweet helmet.. I highly recommend.. Looks great and with great protection.. February 17, 2014
Very Good helmet Very comfortable and aerodynamic. Makes high speed riding more comfortable and the air flow through the helmet will keep you cool even on very hot days. December 30, 2013
Helmet with great features Just got this helmet yesterday and tried this - oh boy, this is an awesome helmet. I was using the HJC CL-16 on my Gixxer earlier, which was heavy, bending my neck and crouching was really painful. Riding in tuck position is so easy with this helmet. At really good speeds, when you turn your head, you'll hear a nice whistle, which you need to get used to (This is because of the various vents on the helmet). Its fit is spot on, the only flip side is - just like any other race helmets, you need a pair of earplugs to stop the noise. December 23, 2013
This is a race thoroughbred Got this for commuting in dangerous LA traffic because it's the highest SHARP-rated helmet available in the states (Five stars, but more importantly, "Green" rating for all 5 impact zones). While it's solidly built, looks good, it should be known that this girl is not made to be the most comfortable helmet in the world, it's made for protection on the track. Noise: she's loud. Coming off a Scorpion 500 she's only a tad louder than that helmet. For $600 you'd think they'd pay a bit more attention to noise. Before I go into fit let me explain my beautiful head shape: From front to back: my head is wider at the back, and slims as it approaches my forehead. From top to bottom: my head is wider at the top and narrows as it approaches my jaw line. I'm a Large in this and the Scorpion 500-- which is the best fitting helmet I've had for my head shape. Helmet fit: pretty darn close to perfect, but need a few millimeters more more front to back-- I can feel some uncomfortable pressure on my forehead after about 20 minutes, which as you'll see in other comments here or on forums leaves a red mark and two mosquito bites (from the 2 vents holes in the liner--bad idea shark). I may dremmel out a milli or two from the eps, which I had to do on my previously owned Scorpion 700. I've read others complain about the big cheek pads, and while they do hinder smiling, they aren't bothersome to me. Also, the helmet does not cover as much of the back of my head as the scorpion, it basically begins coverage right where my neck ends and my skull begins, but again this is a race helmet meant to live in the tuck position where your head is kinked backwards slightly. Liner: Good, but not as good as the scorpion kwik wik material. If my head is hot, it feels the same temp when I put on the helmet-- the scorpion has a cooling sensation (may sound weird but it's true) Ventilation: crazy good. Especially over the top of the ears if your shield is open because shark leave a millimeter for sunglasses to fit, that tiny opening suck air in, which is good for me and my big ear that get hot. Shield: Incredible. Easy on easy off mechanism that's very solidly built, far superior to Scorpions quick change system. Optically it's astounding, very clear. Anti fog works well so far. But mainly, she's a beast of plastic. Feel VERY secure when shut. Misc: love the air filter that's in the mouth vent. Killer idea shark designers! Sharktooth: was easy to install, really sexy design, sound is just OK. Loud enough-- and yes position is everything. Music sounds the best. Podcast are OK. Phone calls are almost unbearable poor sounding -- voices sound crackly. Best thing is it does work with Siri, which I read one reviewer say it didn't, either they are just plain wrong on apple updated bluetooth capability with Siri since then. Main appeal: design is flawless and don't have to wear earbuds. Had to remove neck liner to install which is a pain in the buttocks to put back in. Here's how: start at the back and as you move forward, pull the liner back toward the rear. So first you push it in between the eps and shell and then pull back to the rear. December 13, 2013
Great airflow, style and visor I love this helmet. Currently I ride a Harley Sportster, which has an upright riding position. Airflow is good when upright, but when hunched down in a sportbike position the top vents get in the wind and a TON of air starts going through (I'm planning on buying an Aprilia sportbike). The visor is thick and very clear/distortion-free. Downsides? It fogs a bit when humid out, but nothing like my previous mid-range HJC which totally fogged over all the time. August 29, 2013
Amazing Helmet I just bought my 4th helmet this year and its the Race R Pro from shark. All my helmets were from good brands but unfortunetly was not good for me. My main concern in a helmet is to be quiet and light in weight and finally i can say i found my helmet which is the race r pro....I advice any rider who rides a sport bike to get this helmet. Its the first time i feel the vents in a helmet works...it feels like i have an air conditioner inside the helmet with the amount of air passing by inside out. The quality and finishing of the helmet is a high standard and you feel that your head is really safe in that thing. My friends which i ride with are now considering to get the same helmet ....So offcourse i send them the link of revzilla to start buying there items from there. Revzilla thank you very much for the videos which really help the buyers decide in the item they want to purchase and for the best customer service and fast shipping. Regards M September 24, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
D A: Because I heard it was a good helmet and want to confirm. Bought the Revzilla it is a good shop. Nov 18, 2013
A shopper asked: Shoud I choose this helmet over an Arai Corsair V if I ride fast in secondary roads and highways, some riding around the city but none in racetracks? Aug 22, 2013

Ronaldo A: Hi. These shark helmet and Arai helmets are very good, I have both. These helmets are very stable at high speeds and move tons of air to refresh head, but I think the visor of shark is best for you, because it is thicker (f1 style), and you pilot at high speed out of racetracks, if a stone hit the visor to the sahrk, being thicker, will hold better impact. But I want to emphasize that the two helmets are very good and will serve you well. I even have a collection of eight helmets, and I can`t speak which is better, because all the helmets I have, are top of the line, I can say is that everyone is very evenly matched, some are a little better in some aspects, and slightly worse in others. I hope I have helped. Good luck with the purchase. Aug 27, 2013

Michael M: Honestly, they will both be great helmets. Arai makes a great helmet and so does Shark. My guess is the Shark will be better in the vision, styling (totally subjective), aero, and ventilation than the Arai. But the Arai will likely be quieter and perhaps a little more cushy inside. The shield mechanism on the Shark is super easy to work and customize (for tension). The Arai in my past experience was a pain in the ass for shield changes. I would 100% say Shark if you were racing, but am more neutral since you are street riding.

In other words, let fit and vision be your deciding factor.

Lane S: I love this helmet, and the material quality is better than the Arai Corsair V in my opinion. So it pains me to say that I would not suggest it if you do no track riding at all. The dual rear spoiler design works extremely well in the tuck or 3/4 tuck, but if you sit straight up for a highway ride it does have a tendency start tugging your head back. So if you were going to do all on road riding, I would suggest the Arai which has a much less prominent spoiler design. Aug 24, 2013

Steve L: This helmet is wonderful. If the Shark fits your head shape, it would be hard to beat. It's very stable at speed, does not drag your head around when you turn it, and is extremely well built. I use my Race R Pro (Stinger version) strictly for track days, but absolutely love it. I plan on picking up a Speed R for high performance street riding since I prefer the integral sun shield for use on the street. Aug 23, 2013

John Z: I own many helmets and trade them out week to week, in that group are 4 Sharks and they are my favorites. Light, quiet, comfortable and stable at speed. I have just about every brand of helmet but no Arai. Aug 24, 2013

Robert P asked: What size cheek pads come with this helmet? My experience trying on the helmet at COTA MotoGP event was that it was very difficult to get on and off and I needed smaller cheek pads. Does it come with both clear and smoke screen? Jul 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Lane S: If you have trouble getting this helmet on and off I don't think the cheek pads will be the issue so much as the padding that rings the bottom of the helmet, which is substantial. I can't tell you how the additional pads are because it fit me really well out of the box, but it does not come with two screens, you have to purchase the smoke screens separately. Jul 9, 2014

bernardo m: They come in 30mm, i bought 25mm and made a difference. They do feel tight at first. when riding at hight speeds it is quiet and steady. Better than my Shoei x11 and Arai rx7rr. Only comes in clear screen. The whole helmet is very light too Jul 9, 2014

A S asked: Will this helmet work well with a naked bike? I ride a Honda Hornet and i'm concerned of stability and noise, since there is no fairing on the bike. Will it be comfortable in that position? Jan 13, 2014

Jason C: Yes it will work very well. The fairings on the bike make no difference in how the helmet acts under any riding conditions. I have owned a Shoei and an Arai. This Shark race pro is the best helmet I have ever had. So aerodynamic its crazy. Get it. The first time u put it on you will be amazed. Good luck! Jan 13, 2014

Kevin W: Hello A S. Yes this helmet will be comfortable while riding a Honda Hornet. That is a nice bike by the way. This is the lightest helmet I have ever worn. You might even forget you have it on. This is a very good decision. I hope you get decide to get it. Good luck and safe riding. Jan 13, 2014

crmrse69: The Arai was to tight on the sides of my head and slight pressure on my forehead . So I would say it is a little rounder and runs a touch larger the the large Arai. Aug 13, 2012

A shopper asked: I'm riding a ducati streetfighter and thinking about buying either the Race-R, or the Speed-R. Which one do you think would be the best choice for me? I'm most concerned about noise level and airflow. I'm thankful for any answer that can help me decide which helmet I should go with. Feb 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Brad L: I own both helmets and also ride ducatis. a diavel and a panigale. nice choice on the streetfighter by the way. I use the speed-r for the diavel. the styling perfectly fits the "naked" bike style. Either helmet you cant go wrong. I got hooked on shark helmets years ago and will have nothing else on my noggin. Id have to say the wind noise and airflow are better on the race-r vs. the speed but the speed-r is still plenty good.The 4mm visor on both is like closing a coffin door to wind noise, and makes other helmets pale in comparison. if your doing more canyon carving, and commuting go with the speed-r. price point,features, (i.e.) the top gun visor, not to mention style it will fit the bill and will save you $200-$300. If you find your self doing uber high speed runs and lotsa track days go with the race-r.They both stay very stable at high speeds. Airflow is better on the race-r with all of its 7 vents but the race collar underneath can counteract that and stifle you some on hot days, but it also deadens a lot of road/wind noise,So its a tradeoff. Hope that info helps.Keep the Duc flyin. Feb 7, 2014
