Shark S700 Legion Helmet (Size XS Only)
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!

Good, but far from ideal.
This is my first helmet, before the S700 I've used only two other ones provided by a riding school.
I like it, it is far from ideal however.
The first thing is very subjective as this was the only helmet out of 20-30 I've tried (in the 150-200 Euros price range) which would fit my head perfectly. And by perfect fit I mean it. It just sits snug, holds cheeks well and I do not feel any place where it would have some extra pressure or anything like that. While it sits tight I have no feeling of it being on my head. Really love the fit.
Another good things is the visor. It is clear, I can't see any optical distortions and it operates smoothly and nicely.
Compared to AGV helmet of the same price range I have for my wife, the Shark's visor is just on a different level of quality. It is easy detachable for cleaning too.
Same goes for the sun visor, while it reduces sharpness significantly, it operates well and easy. Large trigger hook looks a bit odd but is actually very easy to use in gloves.
Aerodynamics are fine, up to 120-130kph there is no feel of pressure on the neck at all. Level of noise can be a bit on a high side, however when I have my neck warmer on, there is no high pitch at all.
General quality is on a good side and helmet is very pleasant to touch and operate. After almost 1 year of daily use the paint is chipping off from some spots, but I constantly am scrapping or hitting the helmet against the exit door of my apartment. So probably it is my fault.
On a bad side are the air vents. They are tiny and make no difference at all. In fact I can not tell if vents are open or closed, neither by looking at them, neither by touching those, neither by feeling the change in the air flow.
However, I am using one-click-open position of the visor to allow extra air during early morning low speed commute. It solves the problem. When going more than 40-50kph there is no need to raise the visor at all, flow is enough to keep the fog away.
In summary: if it fits your head you will be very comfortable and pleased over quality of this basic but solid helmet. You will have no air flow control however.
