Shark S700 Legion Helmet
Visor opens at speed.
I'm not sure if I got a defected helmet or it's a design flaw but while turning my head to the side at high speed the visor flips open. Makes it really dangerous and hard to see as the wind suddenly hits my eyes. Graphics are awesome and it's a comfortable helmet for the price but I can't recommend a helmet that has such a flaw.

Pretty freakin' sweet HELMET!!!!!
I had the shark evo luminescent 3 helmet#$449# .....the glow in the dark effect is a let down....but this helmet here....talk about a head turner. It's pretty breathable once you understnad the controls on it. the visor doesn't go all the way up so you still see it in your field of vision. the helmet is definitely an attention grabber. I do get a lot of compliments and even got a few from some Florida State Troopers and Panama City police,grant it, that's not exactly the kind of attention i'm trying to have on me but hey it's all good. I'd recommend this for anyone!!!! best graphic helmet next to icon airmada chainbrain helmet

Good helmet for the money
Looks great! Could be quieter. Good air flow for the hot summer days.

Comfortable, practical helmet with nice styling
Ventilation is pretty straightforward: vent on the face and 2 on top of the head. Very very breathable.
The dropdown visor is nice, but I haven't had a chance to use it a whole lot.
I was wearing a cheap HJC helmet for a long time, and I never realized how much I was missing from my peripherals. This helmet has a pretty wide viewing angle and I'm really pleased with it. It makes me feel more confident when riding.
It does a really good job at suppressing air noise.
The front faceplate has lots of positions that it can be held in, which is AWESOME.
There's really only one major con here, which is with the faceplate. I like to ride with my faceplate all the way open whenever possible, and I can do that easily with this helmet. A small annoying difference between this helmet and my previous helmet is that in the 'up' position, the faceplate is still kind of visible at the top of my vision. I'm used to not being able to see it a lot, so it's kind of annoying, but I think that might just be my OCD.
Overall, awesome helmet. Really pleased.

Overall, a nice comfortable helmet
Great fit, look, features, and functionality. However, the tabs to control the sun-visor and vents do feel a little cheap. Otherwise a nice helmet that gets a lot of compliments. Vents decently well and not noisy, but haven't gone on the highway yet. If you are at all considering this helmet, I would recommend it.
Just a side note, the green color on the helmet is not exactly as shown. It is more of a olive military green, which in combination with the designs give the helmet a fighter pilot sort of look. Kind of nice in my opinion.
