Shark S700 Guintoli Replica Helmet
Great Helmet for the Price Point
I bought this helmet as a backup for my AGV D1 EVO Naked. It's a great helmet especially at this price point. It isn't freakishly loud but not the most quite either. The helmet fits true to size and is pretty comfortable. There is also plenty of space for speaker installation so a bluetooth device would be work great. I love the drop down sun visor and the pin lock insert that came with the helmet. It really was a good deal.

The helmet is super beautiful, nice matte black with nice high contrast designs. It lacks ventilation and, somehow, the lining seems warmer than what I am used to with other brands. The drop down tinted visor is very practical but of low quality. You can actually see that as the vision suffers distortions when using it. I find the noise level to be quite low, which is a plus.
Overall, I am happy with this purchase given the price I paid, but I would not want to have only this helmet to use all the time.

Drop down sun visor works while wearing glasses, but there's not much extra room at the temples so I can only wear certain eyeglasses. There's a little distortion through the sun visor but it's a decent trade-off for the convenience.
Included pinlock lens is an awesome bonus and works well.
The vent switches are hard to find and don't seem to do much

It's a helmet
I am a new rider so I really have nothing to compare this to. There is a lot of wind noise at highway speed but I assume that is normal. It doesn't bother my ears or anything.
The drop down sun visor is a nice feature but it does have some power to it so as a new rider it may be a little difficult to get used to, as it throws off your judgement of distance.
My only real gripe with the helmet, which could just be a problem with only mine, is that there is a seam right in the forehead that always gets too much pressure. If it was an older helmet I would buy new guts for it but it is too new for me to justify the added cost. Its nothing terrible either, just a little annoying and makes me fidget with the helmet a little at stops to alleviate the pressure.

Decent helmet for the price.
I have a smallish head and when measured, it comes out I should be wearing a medium. I ordered the medium and it's just slightly big. Not so big that I fear losing the helmet, but doing Shark's recommended tests with the helmet on there is some roominess to the helmet. The airflow across the top of my head feels minimal at best, and at the chin vent feels like nothing. I think the chin vent feels like nothing due to the openness between my chin and the helmet.
I really like the ability to slide in glasses with ease while wearing the helmet. The sun visor inside is also a great bonus feature. The helmet did come with an anti-fog insert. So far it has performed less than desired, but hey it was free with the helmet.

Love the color
It's beautiful and looks amazing. It fit perfectly and the noise level isn't a problem.

Good, but sun visor has power
Absolutely loving the Shark S700, have been using it primarily in the city, yet to do a long ride with it.
However, I would like to point it out to anyone considering buying this that the inner Sun Visor is not of great quality. The vision through the sun visor is quite distorted and there is high optical power on it. I don't know if all of the helmets have this issue or it is just this one, but unfortunately i cannot return this item as I am in India and I cannot ship it back to Revzilla as that would cost a lot of money!
Overall a good helmet for the price and I would but one again, but my only grouse with sunvisor stays and would like it if it could be resolved, one way or the other!
