Shark Sharktooth Bluetooth Kit
This is a great product. However, the installation directions need a lot of works. the pictures don't tell you to disassemble the helmet, especially the neck restraint to install the product.

It does the job but dont expect wonders
I guess the best word to describe this is 'overpriced'. The instruction manual was way confusing and I end up sorting this out myself and reading through the forums. For this kind of price, it is definitely too expensive. You would expect something great out of it, you end up dissappointed. Well if I have another Shark helmet, I would think again to purchase it. To me, the price was just unjustified.

Very Good Modular
This was my first Shark Helmet I did not want to drop a thousand dollars on a Schub. The EvoLine 2 looked pretty good, but as soon as I saw its replacement was on the way I waited for the EvoLine 3.
I'll start with telling you want I don't like about the helmet:
Fit is a little on the tight size. I normally wear an XL AGV helmet - same with the Shark. But it does fit a little tighter.
When removing the cheek pads and head liner to install the SharkTooth Blutooth; three of the snaps popped off. Kind of hard to accept that was due to wear and tear since I had not even left the house with it.
Once the Sharktooth headset is installed it can be a little painful to put the helmet on
For some reason I get a good bit of wind noise from the air coming over the top of my windscreen. I am not sure if I just never thought of it before or for some reason I hear it better with this helmet on.
I would prefer something other than the double D ring straps.
What I like about the Shark Helmet
Good tight fit - does not get annoying
Easily compatible with blutooth (does not have to be Sharktooth)
'Pretty' Quiet - Not the quietest helmet but definitely better than the el-cheap-o brain buckets

This helmet is excellent. It fits true to size as recommended by Revzilla and it is comfortable.
The Shark helmet is a great purchase. I find it fits true to Revzilla's guide lines and is actually quieter than the replaced helmet. I love the Shark features, fit and feel. I sit behind a large windscreen, so, it is hard to tell how well the air flows. I had a friend test the helmet on a go-fast and he liked the balance and fit very much and commented on it's aerodynamics. I also purchased the Shark bluetooth and found the voice quality excellent, but found it hard to hear at high speed; however, this may be a poorly placed speaker.

Nice integration, headphone sound quality is subpar for price.
When I received the box, the packaging looks amazing. Shark has done a great job with marketing.
The contour on the actual sharktooth does not exactly match my speed-r and finding a good mounting point took a little planning. The integration of the helmet was easy, however the only thing that is needed for a non-shark helmet is a slight cutout for the battery pack which does not appear to be the newer lithium technologies (need to check that).
The speakers for the ears looked good upon initial inspection, but when I actually placed them in my helmet, my ears are now less comfortable. I've tried different locations near the ears but to no avail unless I cut some material away. Maybe I have big ears. Also the quality of the sound was less than expected for $245. Even some $30 headphones I have have better frequency response (especially at the lower frequencies)
Removing the foam on the microphone reveals a cheap-looking (which may not reflect function), wires not shrink-wrapped, plastic, single-holed microphone. With the foam on, however, the mic looks good.
The bluetooth functioning is Ok, but if you have an Android (ICS), it can be a bit clumsy. I feel like I'm going to have to mount my phone (which I was trying to avoid) and I'm going to have to spend time practicing before actually using this on the ride.
Also, I realized that the microUSB cable for charging does not include the 2 data lines. This is not an issue but I wanted you to know in case you swap usb cables around.
I may try modding this sharktooth to get better sound. Hope my info helps your decision. I still would recommend it, but you should take these points into consideration especially at such an expense.

HANDS DOWN - the BEST you can buy!
I have several bluetooth units from a variety of manufacturers and there is no doubt about it, for the Shark Evoline II ST series of modular helmets, the Sharktooth Bluetooth kit IS the one you want to buy! Placement is a snap, with the external controller on the helmet being flush, very small and very easy to operate WITH gloves. I turn it on before putting the helmet on, to verify and ensure operation and pairing (you can also hear this when on your head). For the three Shark Evoline II helmets I have, two of them have this unit and I am thrilled with the features and how easily it pairs with my bike radio / GPS, my passenger, AND my phone. Clarity and volume are more than adequate IF you don't replace the ear pad covers as this puts your ear right next to the speaker. DO take the time to get the speaker adjusted to where your ear is located too. If it's not right over your ear, the volume may drop a lot and even replacing the thin ear cloth can reduce the volume, so I don't use it at all. If you are not sure if the volume is loud enough, try using before you put it in the helmet. Revzilla has been EXCELLENT in communication about when the kits arrived and I ordered them immediately. Revzilla has some of the fastest shipping around and their return policy is stellar too. Putting on a Shark Evoline II with the Sharktooth Bluetooth is definitely the way to go. I have even charged the unit while riding using my car charger (unit does not operate while charging though). If you have a Shark Evoline II ST helmet and are looking for a bluetooth kit, BUY IT - YOU WILL LIKE IT!!

We got these for the great features
My wife and I got two of the Shark Evoline 2 ST Moovit because we wanted a helmet that could be used open or closed. She like it closed most of the time to get the noise down but I like it open for more air but there is a lot of traffic I can close it down for more protection if something/someone should do something dumb.
We also got the blue tooth system for them and so far they work great. We can talk and I can use the phone if needed. I am going to try and hook up my MP3 player to them. My Spyder has a MP3 player and radio but you have turn up a lot to hear it.
It does take and little time getting the ear pieces in the right place but after you do them sound good.
We would but them again.
