What's this?

Shark Speed-R Carbon Skin Helmet

The real wild child is now available in a full carbon finish. An even more assertive look for a lower weight. Shark is proud to present a new philosophy. Utilizing all Shark’s expertise in safety, innovation and function the Speed-R is a helmet specifically designed to meet the passionate demands of sport bike motorcycle riders.

The wind tunnel tested double blade air spoiler is positioned at the rear of the Speed-R which allows the air to flow above and below the blade. Hence the dual venturi effect to extract warm air from the helmet to prevent fogging and cancel the buffering effect. The immediate benefit is no air turbulence running inside the helmet and greater stability at a steady speed.

Note: The Speed-R runs slightly small. If you are between sizes, order the larger size.

Features:

  • Includes Pinlock shield and lens 
  • Constructed from carbon aramid fiber and multiaxial glass fiber
  • Latest generation composite ‘long fiber’ construction
  • Extensive wind-tunnel testing to perfect aerodynamics and ventilation system for use with ‘naked’ road bikes
  • Double cavity rear spoiler creates faster air circulation to drastically reduce fogging 
  • Rear deflector stabilizer reduces helmet buffeting
  • Integrated UV protection & anti-scratch drop down sun visor
  • Faceshield varies in thickness and is optically correct
  • Scratch resistant and anti-fog coated faceshield
  • Quick release visor system
  • Shark Easy Fit comfort lining accommodates all types of glasses
  • Completely removable and washable CoolMax liner
  • Chin curtain included
  • Secure Double D-ring strap
  • Sharktooth compatible
  • Two shell sizes
  • ECE 2205 and DOT approved

Amazing helmet!
I ordered this helmet after doing weeks of research, trying on every other manufacturer's lid I could find at all of my local retailers (none of whom carry Shark!) and deciding to take a chance on it given my old helmet, which was a great fit, was also a Shark. I am not disappointed with my decision.<br><br>Everything about this helmet is great. First off, the fit is perfect for me - obviously it won't be for everyone. The only other helmet I found and tried on that was a decent, comfortable fit was the Arai Defiant, but this Shark helmet blows the Arai out of the water with its features. It's a tight squeeze getting this helmet on and off, but when it's on it feels like it was made to be there. The chin strap is very moveable up and down, which is nice - I find a lot of helmets have chin straps that make me feel like I'm being choked which isn't a cool way to spend a ride. The strap on this one can tuck up under my chin so that I barely even notice it's there.<br><br>The air flow is good - I'm always cold anyway, so I'm okay with less air movement. With the upper vent closed but the mouth vent open, this helmet moves a decent enough amount of air to be comfortable. Air coming in the underside of the helmet was minimal, even at highway speeds. I did notice that when I was stopped not a lot of air gets in, almost to the point where I felt like I was re-breathing my own breath, but cracking the visor put an end to that.<br>The visor itself is very nice and sturdy feeling - I like that it doesn't have detents to click through when moving it up and down; the movement is very solid and smooth. The visor lock is very tight to begin with - there's probably a technique to pop it open easily, but until I figure out what it is and how to do it with my gloves on, I nearly dislocate my thumb trying to pop my visor open.<br><br>The internal sun visor was probably the number two reason why I chose this helmet and it's so far my favourite feature. I have super light-sensitive eyes, so I was always having to fuss and fumble with sunglasses. Not anymore! The visor actuator on top of the helmet is super easy to use gloved or not and the visor itself is excellent - it covers just about my entire field of vision except for the very bottom of my peripheral on both sides. My first ride in the helmet went from a bright, sunny day to mostly overcast, and the visor performed beautifully. I did notice a small bit of visual distortion between the tinted visor and the external visor (without the pinlock shield installed), but not enough that I feel it will cause any eye fatigue or strain on long rides.<br><br>The helmet itself is wonderfully lightweight - my old helmet (a Shark S500 Air) feels like a cinder block in comparison. I ride a stripped-down Kawi Ex650R and noticed far less buffeting with this helmet than the old one, though it did start to wobble around a bit when I got into some choppy crosswinds. Again, though, light years better than the old one.<br><br>Finally, I can't get over how much quieter this helmet is over my old one which - to be honest - was well overdue to be replaced and was probably more worn out than I should have been riding with. I found it uncomfortable to ride with my old helmet without foam earplugs or silicone-tipped ear buds in, it was just that loud. First ride with this helmet, I didn't even realize at first I had forgotten to grab earplugs but once I noticed it - wow. It. Is. So. Quiet. I even remarked to my riding buddy that I can actually hear my bike the way it sounds, rather than bike sounds through a bunch of wind noise :)<br><br>All in all, I am beyond pleased with this helmet and with the customer service from Revzilla - highly recommend both!

Great helmet
This is not my first Shark hekmet( s800, s900 , RSI ) so I was well aware about the quality of the build and other aspects .<br>Is a quiet helmet, light , wide eye port , moderate air flow at low speed , and great air flow at higher speeds( over 60 mph)<br>It is dificult to open the visor using the thumb , the sunglases are 65 % efective during a sunny day ( I live in Qatar , and here is always sunny:) ) . The pinlock film included was a verry big disspointment .....yelow-ish, and a little toooo hard for a pinlock . Actualy if the Shark company decided to putt this in the box....big mistake.<br>I also ordered the mirror like visor. I was expecting a light dark silver mirro finish, but actualy is imposible to use this visor during the night. I called suicide black this visor . But the quality of the visor is more than balistic. Optically corect , and thick .<br>And now ......manny thanks to the revzilla team , eficient , and polite and also verry helpful. 5 star client service.

Lightweight and well built. Excellent if you wear glasses
I found the helmet to be very light, which is to be expected. It is not the lightest helmet available, but compared to similar products it is pretty good. My previous helmet was a Suomy Spec-1r Extreme, which was quite light at the time, and this is very similar in weight, albeit in a non-racing style helmet. The helmet seems very aerodynamic, there is no buffeting and it feels planted at all speeds. The helmet vents adequately but you dont really get the feeling of air moving over the top of your head from the upper vent. The chin vent works very well though. I was expecting the helmet to be quiet based on other reviews and it was, sort of. With the helmet on, I could immediately tell the difference it outside noise reduction compared to my previous helmet (which was very noisy). There is very little high pitched wind noise, but I notice there to be a lot of boomy noise from the underside of the helmet. It becomes more pronounced as that is the only noise you hear. This could change based on your bike/windscreen/seating position etc. Currently I have only rode a VFR1200 with the helmet for a tour, I have not tried it with my Super Duke yet. The visor is excellent with no detents, easy to remove and adjust the tension. I have not used the clear screen other than to install the pinlock, but it looks nice. I have a dark smoke visor which has worked well and does not fog up. They are dead easy to swap as well. The internal sun visor is not as dark as the smoked visor, but would work if you were in day to night/night to day riding and only wanted to have one visor. The helmet is well made with a quality liner and components. The exterior is nicely finnished and the carbon looks beautiful. There is lots of room for wearing your glasses and also plenty of space in the ear cups for speakers or wearing in-ear monitors. The helmet fit tight at the cheeks but felt slightly loose around the dome of my head at first, but seems to have broke in and feels secure, without being tight. I blame my oddly shaped head. I measured 57.5cm around the circumference of my head and have a size Medium. The viewing area seems a bit reduced to my previous hemet, but not by much. It is similar to other more modern helmets I have tried on and could be from newer designs for better safety. Overall I am happy with the helmet, it met my requirements for a lightweight, reasonably quiet, well built helmet and at the price point, it is very good.

Great Buy
After lots of looking ad research I decided originally on the shark vision r, but after trial and error on the size I realized they didnt have the size I needed. I took to step up because I liked the look of the carbon fiber. When I got the helmet I was amazed at how much nicer this one was compared to the vision r. I fell in love. The spaces for glasses make wearing my shades not a problem at all. The removable chin curtain is great for city riding to catch more of a breeze inside. It amazed me how quiet it was as well. My bike isn't crazy loud, but I had to keep looking to check to make sure I was in the proper gear. Also in comparison to riding with other full face helmets the weight feels much less than others while riding.<br>The only problem was that the internal visor was disconnected when I got it. I had to send it in for warranty work and after I got it back within a week it was coming detached once again. I just ripped it out.<br>Overall I would buy this helmet over and over. Well worth the money.

Excellent all around
This has been my first proper helmet (previous was a sub-$50 unit from a friend - still did the job though) and it hasn't disappointed. Lightweight, comfortable, quiet, and with great features I am extremely happy with my purchase. Lifting the visor takes some getting used to, but I find the airflow is so good and the anti-fog works so well that I very rarely need to. Internal sun visor works great, but may not be dark enough for some.<br><br>It could be an individual product issue, but the small vent in front of the chin feels a little loose and is easily toggled by accident.

Excelent performance and confortable
This helmet is definitively the best from Shark.<br>Even for a sport-bike helmet it is comfortable and I can't imagine how other helmets don't come with the internal sun visor. The noise is really low and fell pretty safe with it.

Great Helmet
Shark Speed-R Carbon Skin is very nice! super light and the quietest helmet i have ever owned. my only complaint is that when i unboxed it, the rubberized fog visor insert that it comes with appeared to have been left in the sun for 60 years, it was very discolored and impossible to see through. i just threw it away. It is still worth every penny, my question to you is why are you still reading reviews CLICK BUY BEFORE THEY ARE ALL GONE!

Great helmet. The shield is bulletproof and the sunvisor is one of the best out there right now. Fit is pretty good, but is a tad round for my head (there is a slight space on my ears). Other than that, it is comfortable, secure and light! Highly recommend.
Jeffrey B on Mar 26, 2016
The reviews says it's a bit more oval than the Evoline 3 ST which I currently have. The Evoline 3 ST that I have hurts my forehead after about 45 minutes of riding so I am hoping that this helmet will fit better.

only carbon fiber helmet with built in sun shade. love it!
Jordon W on Aug 14, 2014
I choose the Shark Speed-R helmet for its drop down inner sun-shield, the optically correct visor (I must say, it is very clear and optically correct), I like the carbon fiber skin, and most important when I did my test fittings this helmet fit my intermediate oval shaped head very comfortably.
Brian S on Aug 3, 2014
Based on reviews. Also wanted a good helmet for my riding style and this was recommended for naked style bikes. And who doesnt want carbon fiber!?!

Also would be nice if you could sort your helmets by weight? Just a thought.

How well does the internal sun visor work with glasses?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This helmet will work perfectly with any type of vision correction glasses, just to test this I put on my bulky Oakley sunglasses and they still fit with the visor.
I have measured my head size and i am 23" exactly. This puts me somewhere between a medium and a large. Watching Anthony's review videos on other helmets he will sometimes mention that if you're between two sizes to go with the smaller one. Is that the case with shark speed-r carbon helmet?
A shopper on May 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have had several brands helmets over the years and always wear a medium.
I find that the Shark is a bit tighter than the other brands. If leaning towards large, I would recommend going with large and not medium. Would be too tight.
Hi, does the speed R carbon skin has any chin curtain? As per the video is not!
Can I install one? If not what about the heat and win noise? Without the chin curtain will be little hard.
thanks
Mohamad E on Jul 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The speed R does have a chin curtain. It's a double layer Lycra material and it is removeable. As for the noise level, it's about average. Since it's pre-molded for speakers, there's a lot of room between your ears and the helmet that may attribute to wind noise. That can easily be resolved with some foam padding behind the liner. The helmet doesn't seem to vent well unless you are looking down, or have the visor open. I think this is due to the arodinamics of the shell. It's very stable at highway speeds and above with almost no buffeting. There seems to be very little drag, or negative pressure to the rear of the helmet that usually pulls the air through, but I think it's a small sacrifice for the stability. If you live in a humid climate, it does come with a clear pin-lock for the shield. Overall, for the price point, I think this is an excellent helmet. It's light weight, comfortable, and looks great too! Good luck, ATGATT!
I have an Arai Vector 2, would this be better for my naked bike?
shawn m on Jun 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No. It became apparent to me during winter that this is not for the naked bike rider ( i ride a honda hornet 919). Once in the tuck position it does what its supposed to do...everything becomes silent and no wind gets in the helmet. When riding upright a lot of wind creeps up, even with the little chin curtain thing added to it. so during winter it is VERY cold. That being said, it's great for summer ridding, the extra air is very welcome on hot days
Do the new versions of this helmet come with pinlock shield and insert? You can see the pinlock in the pictures but it is not listed in the features.
A shopper on Jan 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: On the Shark website, the description says a 'Pinlock Maxvision' film is provided with the helmet.
can this fit the neck roll from the pro r to help reduce the wind noise?

What is the difference between the Speed - R and the Race - R? I ride fast but not at the track. Thanks in advance.
