Shark Raw Soyouz Helmet
It just needs one small change
I got the green and red one and I love it. But I am planning to make a single change: It needs the letters "CCCP" stenciled right across the front where the shark logo is. Matte black characters of course. I'm gonna remove the logo and hit it with the air brush as soon as I decide on just the right font and character size. Nas Bedania.

Unique style helmet.
This helmet has a unique style compared to other helmets. Fits the look perfectly that I'm looking for. The top vent offers enough air flow to cool your head. The goggles and mouth guard offer protection from the elements and debris like bugs. They are a pain to put together at first so I would recommend not taking them apart once they're together. I measured as a large but decided to go xl, glad I did.

Function and Form
This helmet is well-built, as one would want from a helmet at this price. The looks are great, obviously why you're interested in buying it! I get plenty of compliments daily. Fit is secure. I was just between L/XL but have more of an oval head, so I went with the XL and the fit is just fine. The lens is great, I couldn't fog it when I tried (sitting at a light, breathing very heavily).
I have since got 2 friends to purchase these thru Revzilla. Lol. Great helmet, great online retailer.

WORTH EVVVVERY FUCKKING PENNY !!
1) it is BADDD ASSS, Ive had many helmets over the years this is THE SHITT( my vance and hines exhaust although sexy and LOUD didnt turn much heads as much as the helmet)
2) its cost- effective ( if this is for 10.000 dollarsi would still get it)
3) btw i have one and planning to buy more all colours ;) its the greatest helmet
4) clear visual field and i can freely look to my back not hust the sides like most full helmets ( FYI this shark is considered half face)
It is EPIC And beatiful i recommened buying goggles upgrade with colors and mask varities

Good Stye Helmet
Very stylish helmet. But it kind of narrower than my Shark Race-R Carbon XL Helmet. Maybe the first time the helmet not fit my head yet. It looks very cool, it fits my diavel, very good for urban riding(too noisy for long ride). I think this is very worth purchase. Comment from Shanghai of China.

Best Helmet I've ever worn!
I originally purchased this helmet for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day. Although he loves the helmet, he can't really wear it with his glasses on, so the helmet is now mine! :) It is very light and comfortable. Perfect for a warm day to go riding. Air flow is wonderful. I'm claiming this helmet when I start riding this summer. I would DEFINITELY recommend this helmet 100%!

Great looking helmet
Really love this helmet. It reminds me of the old tv show AIR WOLF and it make you feel pretty special. It has a soft liner and is very comfortable on long rides. Goggle/face shield system vents a well balance amount of air but at high speed shoulder check it does feel like they will fly off. Putting on the lower shield for the goggles was a pain but is highly effective. Riding in the rain is decent. No were close to a full face but enough to make the ride somewhat enjoyable. I bought the Matte Gold/Black "sand camo" and I get plenty of looks and thumbs ups.

Style: The style is obvious and has already been touched on; so I'll leave that be. I will say that I was looking for something that I felt would look equally cool on my Harley as on my CBR; I feel this fits perfectly.
Fit/Shape: I generally wear a large from most manufacturers, and, apparently, with Shark this is no different (I did measure my cranium prior to ordering). The helmet fits comfortable and as pointed out by Revzilla and several other reviewers, the helmet is round,rather than the seemingly more common oval (though I would go step further and say 'ovoid').
Bear in mind this is 'spherical'; when I hear round I think of the front-to-back shape, as if you are looking straight down on the helmet. This also seems a fitting description for top-to-bottom as well.
Though this may seem obvious, it didn't sink in for me until I pulled the helmet on the first time. My Shoei full-face goes down past the bottoms of my ears, a few centimeters, comfortably while still being snug. The Shark feels as if I have to tuck my ears up into the helmet, though once I get it seated, it is quite comfortable and stable. I do have to pop my tunnels out before putting the helmet on.
Noise level: I find the noise level to be completely tolerable around town, as others have said. I've not yet taken the helmet on the highway, though judging from past experience with other helmets, I feel it will be fine for short trips - I wouldn't use it for very long rides, however.
Air flow - pretty good, though as it is still a bit cool in Colorado, I haven't opened the vent yet. Riding in the mid 30's I can't get the goggles to fog no matter how hard I try. And the cool air is kept at bay very well by the face plate.
Vision: Straight ahead the goggles barely intrude on peripheral vision; I do find I have to turn my head further on shoulder/lanes checks than I do with my Shoei. Not enough to cause concern, just enough to be noticeable.
Weight: Comfortable; not at all heavy.
Features: This is where I am a little disappointed. I don't want to keep track of a rubber plug for my vent. I like vents that I can pop open and closed with one hand.
Also, other sites where I looked at the Shark Raw Soyouz the helmet has a quick release ratcheting chin strap as opposed to the traditional double-d rings. Not a big deal, but something I should have noted before ordering. I still would have ordered, but wouldn't have been bummed when it got here.
I would definitely recommend the helmet to friends and family alike.
