Shark S700 Jost Helmet (Size LG Only)
A review after three weeks
The main selling points on this helmet were its style, and the oh so desirable drop down sun visor. Unfortunately, these are the only favorable characteristics. I "upgraded" to this $200 helmet from a $70 evos I got on ebay for my first bike. Both equally as comfortable, quiet, and both sporting the drop down sun visor. What I was most upset about is how completely useless the air vents are. allow me to add necessary emphasis, completely useless. Would not recommend.

This product is pretty good for the value
It's been 8 years since I had to purchase any motorcycle accessories that's the last time I rode. This purchase was a no Brainerd it was affordable and it looks great. The helmet is pretty kool and light weight. Thanks to Rev zilla for getting my purchase fast to me with no problems.

Good Helmet bad fit
Helmet has great features. the visor is thick and clear. the sun visor works quite well. Vents are a little tough to work with gloves on. Vents do offer good airflow when open. the only downside is the rounded shape doesnt quite fit on my head leaving pressure points until I can find padding it will be restricted to short rides. Excellent helmet if it fits.

What deal! What a helmet!
I'm returning to riding after a few years off and looking for a new helmet. I really liked the look of the S700s With the deal for the 2013 model i couldn't pass it up. The helmet itself is very comfortable and lightweight as advertised. the drop down sun visor is a really nice feature, although the one that comes with it isn't very dark and not sure if you can get darker ones?. That is the one only "gripe" I have with this lid.

I have an older S700 helmet which I loved which led me to buy this one. This helmet is nearly identical to the other shark except with updated vent controls and the internal sun shade. The new vent controls are significantly better and I'm not sure why people reviewing it say it's hard to feel with gloves on. I don't have an issue using the controls or remembering which way to flip them to open or close. The helmet is light and comfortable. The clear visor is optically correct but the sun shade isn't as perfect. The sun shade is easy to flip up our down, but my only complaint is that when it is flipped down, it isn't really "locked"into place. There is still some movement and wiggle with the sun shade. It doesn't really move when riding though.
Visually this helmet looks cool too. I mainly wanted a flat black pain helmet, but those were over 200 and this was on sake for 150. I didn't even realize that it "glows" in the dark until I arrived at my work and all the lights were still off in my office.
In the end I recommend this helmet. I really like the sharks. They are comfortable, light, and look good.

Got into a motorcycle accident with this helmet. If it wasn't for how well and comfortable the helmet fit I'm sure my head would've exploded.
