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

Features:

  • 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

Shark Race-R Pro Kimbo Helmet 5 5 6 6
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
Perfect Simply the best. I've had several brands of helmets, the most famous, and the Shark was the lightest, beautiful and best of all vision. I recommend a lot. It is a perfect helmet. The price is a bit high, but still well worth it. March 18, 2013
The Racer's choice for sure and worthy of full 5 STARS This review is hard for me to write since it is a crash test too. I had a very short, but very sweet relationship with my Shark Race-R Pro. First off, the helmet is a technical piece to say the least. Every contour on it was well thought out and purposeful. Second, it is beautiful and eye-catching. Third, it is quality safety through and through. Fit was fairly neutral, but with a bit more ovalness than say an HJC RPHA. I would say that the Large fits a hair larger than the HJC and Suomy helmets I have tried on. So here are the reasons you should pony up the cash for this helmet. - Aerodynamics were astonishing at race speeds whether under the bubble or leaned over in a high-speed corner - The weight of the helmet was like a feather - The wind noise was better than a lot of other race helmets - The air flow was the best I have EVER had in a helmet. This thing kept me so cool while riding. It basically felt like a convertible. - Visor clarity and strength was great on both the clear and the dark smoke visor. - Ease of use and customizability in visor install and tightness setting for flipping the visor up/down was great. - The ONLY negative thing I have to say is that the magnetic snap on the chin strap was a bit hard to find with gloves on and wasn't as secure as an old-school button snap. It undid itself once or twice at speed and was a bit annoying. NOW THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! It saved my head during a big impact with the pavement after a massive high side at about 60mph. When I hit the pavement, I heard a loud bang on the back of my head and a slight impact. However, I knew that the impact felt a lot lighter than it actually was thanks to the Shark doing it's job just like the 5-Star SHARP test rating would indicate. The rear spoiler was obliterated and there was a dent on the back of the head from the impact. But my head didn't feel a thing really. I'm sad to have only had a few days on this helmet at the track this race season, but am glad that it was there for me when I needed it. It will be tough adjusting back to my old Suomy now that my Shark is gone, but what can a budget racer do, but make use of what he's got. March 6, 2013
Better than expected - lightweight, quiet, and wide view Having had a number of Arai helmets over the years, the Shark Race-R Pro was a nice surprise. It is much quieter than I was expecting, while being just a bit lighter and a bit more comfortable for me than my Arai. For anyone who is wondering, the Shark Race-R Pro is rounder than the Arai intermediate-oval shape. From my experience so far, this helmet doesn't vent quite as well, but easily makes up for this by offering a better windscreen (wider view, clearer/less distortion, and WAY more adjustable) and much better neck-roll for reducing wind noise. The one thing that took some getting used to compared to other helmets I've had is that the chin of the helmet is much closer to your face than in others I have tried; I removed the smaller breath deflector to make more room to both see and to give my nose a bit more clearance.

Fantastic Helmet This helmet has to be in the top 3 helmets I have ever had on my head ever. It is the best cycle helmet I have had on my head. It is very light, very comfortable and it is quiet. The shied is clear, huge vision and never buffets, bends or vibrates ever. The entire helmet is solid. The air movement is excellent inside the helmet. The air movement outside it good, no buffeting at any speeds. The only thing I noticed is that I ride with sunglasses on and a clear shield. If I have the shield open you get a whine/whistling noise at about 45mph. But your not suppose to ride with your shield open, so I would not call this a bad mark. The Shark Tooth system also fits in perfectly and work very well. The helmet is quiet enough that I can talk on the phone at 70 mph and it is clear and they can hear you perfectly. I highly recommend this Helmet I ride a 2012 BMW s1000rr stock exhaust August 13, 2012
Light, stylish and comfortable Great Job Shark!! I have owned many helmets and the problem I have finding the right one is size and shape. My head size falls right between a Medium and Large. So I can either find a smaller fitting Large Helmet or a Large fitting medium helmet and my head size is a intermediate oval. The First Shark Race-R Pro I bought was a large since most High performance helmets run tight. My head fit in it like a fish bowl and it was far too large. The replacement was Medium and fit perfect. The helmet flows air pretty well and there is no wind buffeting at any speed. The Visor is solid and extremely Clear and un distorted. I also like the fact that the visor does not flex when lifting up or down like most flimsy visors from other manufactures. I rate this up with Arai corsair V and Shoei X-12 but lighter and a better buy. Great helmet and a nice step up from the RSR2!!!! July 9, 2012

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

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

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
