great all season everyday helmet
Fits spot on with the size chart. no need to guess, it fits snug and exact. goggles are a little bit of a nu sense to install, not because of difficulty but because the material around the rim of the goggles is soft so it just makes the process a lil longer sometimes. vents are pretty, cool looking helmet, no fogging of the goggles ever. I love this helmet. Cant wait to get the other graphics.

I bought this for the look and am very impressed with the fit, ait flow, and style. Would recommend to anyone as an second/additional helmet.

Super happy. Pay close attention to size chart.
I love this helmet. The mask cuts down on exhaust smells and keeps out most sand and grit. The goggles give good visibility even in twilight in the rain. The helmet feels safe as a 3/4 can and the look is meaner than... That said the sizing leaves no room for error so measure twice. Also when they say round they are not kidding. Over all I could not be happier with this helmet.

Be sure to measure and stick with the guide. Measurements were all spot on for me.
Love the style, and front cowl for covering the mouth.

Weighs almost nothing, stylish and sleek, this is definitely a perfect warm weather helmet.
Protection and durability: What's there to say about this helmet. It's open faced with a little extra plastic in areas that most helmets of this type don't cover. If you go down, the upper portion of your head should fair nicely, but don't expect the road to do any favors for your chin. It will keep the bugs out of your teeth though, which is certainly a plus for those vegan riders out there.
My gripes in durability come mostly from the straps and the clips you have to attach them to the goggles with. These are rather flimsy and the entire five minutes or so I spent trying to connect the goggles to said straps was also spent worrying that I was going to break them. I've yet to have any problems beyond that, though I've only gone about 100 miles or so.
Price: ... I wouldn't mind seeing it $50 lower in this department. The helmet is certainly nice and fits well, but given the quality of the goggles and plate, it seems just a tad too high. Style points boost the price.
Comfort: The Raw certainly shines in this department, at least for short rides. It breathes more than well enough to keep you from sweating and fits quite nicely, remaining far less restricting than full faced helmets and the like. I did notice after about 50 miles or so though that the goggles were beginning to push on my face in a slightly uncomfortable way. I believe keeping your speeds down will likely prevent this, though for now, I'd simply say this helmet is meant for shorter rides, or ones involving more frequent stops.
Air flow: It's almost like you're wearing nothing at all~ Really though, what else would you expect? This helmet doesn't do much to cut down the wind, and you're going to be keeping your face plenty cool whilst wearing it. Even with the top vent closed, there's more than enough air flow to keep even a Floridian happy. Don't expect to be doing any voiceovers while wearing this thing though. Even at low speeds, everything you say will be ten miles behind you by the time it leaves your mouth. Definitely not a helmet for motologs or the GoPro enthusiasts out there. Did I mention this is definitely a warm weather helmet? Yes? Then don't take it out riding on cold days... unless you like the cold, then by all means, do your thing.
P.S. Keeping your speed below 60 or so keeps the noise level down fairly low. Once you go above that, you'd better have earplugs or enjoy the sound of your bike and the wind rushing past or you're going to have a bad time.
Style: There's no doubt that this is where the designers wanted to place their cards with this helmet. It's small, sleek and sexy and I've little doubt it will turn a few heads. While the goggles and the guard that attaches to them might not be the most durable, they certainly add something to a type of helmet that usually just exudes a tired, old design. If you're looking for a street helmet and something out of the ordinary that won't leave your wallet in tears and looks good at the same time, this is definitely a product to order.

Shark Raw Helmet - - Pretty cool helmet!
First - Revzilla was very helpful as I was attempting to get a proper fit. Thanks guys!
Size XL was the winner and feels great. The goggles feel great and the tint is just right for me on sunny or cloudy days. I've not yet tried them at night.
Putting on the face protector was a bit worrisome. The little rubber pins that connect it to the goggles really need a bit of pressure to make them lock up and stay put. I'm never going to take the face protector off as these rubber pins seem to me to be a weak point. I've read other reviews saying the side plates are fragile. I see where they could break if not given a gentle hand. I have had them off several times without incident. Just something to consider.
Overall, I'm very happy with the Shark Raw and with Revzilla. If you want a great looking helmet that gives you a great deal of anonymity while riding, this is a fantastic choice! Ride safe - Bugs wash off. Suv's don't . . .

CRASH TESTED! HAHA
I absolutely loved this helmet, I got so many compliments with it. but unfortunately i got hit and need to replace it now. This helmet literally saved my life. although the face mask did come up during the crash and I did scrap my chin so don't fool yourself.
As soon as I heal up I'm buying another one, I loved it that much.
