Shark Race-R Pro / Speed-R Face Shield
doesn't fit without modification to mechanism
Better off buying the cheaper knock-off version from ebay, as those fit perfect right out of the package. For the unit from shark I have to file the ears down on the mechanism, so that it will fit properly under the plate. jUNK for the price!
This is a problem with the manufacturing and/or basic design of the product, and nothing to do with the great guys at revzilla, they can't help it if the manufacturer sends them junk.

Great visor for day riding ONLY
Great visor and the thicker material for Shark helmet visors can be seen. The fit and finish is great. Slight adjustment for the side hinges to fit onto the helmet.
The dark shade is for sure too dark for night riding.

This product is very easy to install
I got the mirrored gold. Great looking visor. Amazing quality. Little bit on the dark side though.

Great face shield, silver mirror version looks excellent!
Amazing face shield, got the silver mirror version. The built quality is exceptional, which should be like that for this price. It's like a smoked visor (night rides might be hard), but love the mirror look of it!

Smoked visor is very dark
I bought the dark smoke visor and it is just as labelled, dark. It is much darker than some other visors I have seen and is darker than the internal visor in the Shark Speed-R. It is brilliant for daytime riding (bright sun to overcast), but you have no chance after dark. I have ridden with other dark visors at night under the city lights and they are passable, but this is simply too dark. If you are caught out after the sun goes down, prepare to ride by feel or by your Jedi senses. The visor is slightly darker in the center than the edges, this could be from the increased thickness in the middle. It fits the helmet perfectly and is easy to adjust the tension for leaving it open. The design to open it seems simple enough, but is very difficult with a gloved hand for some reason. You can open it with gloves on, but it takes practice and a bit of luck and you need to hold your tongue out just right or it won't work. Still an excellent visor for daytime riding.

These visors are a little on the pricey side, but are great quality. They are very thick and are optically correct. I got the dark smoke and it is VERY dark. Definitely switch back to a clear visor if riding at night.
If it doesn't fit out of the box loosen the adjusters on the visor. I had problems with mine, but after I loosed one side it went on super easy.
Worth the money. Get one.

Cool and practical
I got the silver mirror shield.
Things to like:
- Very nice mirror finish
- Darker tint than I expected for a silver mirror shield - more like dark smoke than light smoke. Great on sunny days.
- Thick, solid construction.
- Seals completely. No whistling at high speeds.
- Hinge mechanism designed so I can change the shield with my head still inside the helmet. Awesome.

I've got the Shark Race-R Pro Stinger Helmet. Bought the silver mirrored visor and it's sick! Love the fact that its mirrored and hides my face and is great when riding against the sun. No glare and very clear vision. Keep in mind, like stated on the visor, "For day time use ONLY." This isn't a joke. When it just starts to get dark, it gets DARK. Night time riding with this is a death wish. Either way I just pop up the visor at night and ride with safety glasses. Still a sick visor. Definitely my favorite!
