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.


  • 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
  • Secure Double D-ring strap
  • Sharktooth compatible
  • Two shell sizes
  • ECE 2205 and DOT approved

Shark Speed-R Carbon Skin Helmet 4.3 5 10 10
Excelent performance and confortable This helmet is definitively the best from Shark. 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. September 21, 2015
awesome helmet! I love this helmet is is super comfortable,nice and quiet,felt strange after how loud my last one was. love the internal sun visor can't really fault it! May 18, 2015
Very Light, great for my older neck! The fit is excellent however trying to raise the shield with gloves while riding is near impossible! Love the sliding sun shield! Very handy for us progressive lens guys! Overall I'm very pleased with the purchase! April 11, 2015
Loud with Face Shield up I like it except for when the face is open its wind noise on the face shield. And Shield mount is weak. Mine was broken December 10, 2014
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. September 10, 2014
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. 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. September 4, 2014
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 . Is a quiet helmet, light , wide eye port , moderate air flow at low speed , and great air flow at higher speeds( over 60 mph) 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. 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 . And now ......manny thanks to the revzilla team , eficient , and polite and also verry helpful. 5 star client service. August 26, 2014
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! August 4, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Sebastien B: 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. Jan 1, 2015
M S: carbon fiber look and Shark reputation/reviews Nov 8, 2014
Ralph E. P: GREAT REVIEWS Sep 21, 2014
Jordon W: only carbon fiber helmet with built in sun shade. love it! Aug 14, 2014
Brian S: 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. Aug 3, 2014
Michael B: 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!?! May 9, 2014
drew c: internal UV sun shade, light weight, air venting, aesthetics Apr 16, 2014

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

Mohamad E asked: 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.

S S: 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! Jul 22, 2014

Codrin O: Yes it does come with a chin curtain but you have to put it on yourself. Personally I have yet to need it (not cold enough yet) so I can't comment on the impact it has on wind noise and heat. Jul 22, 2014
Reply to Codrin Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Codrin O: Depends what ridding position you have. I wouldn't recommend this for naked street bikes ( in particular during winter) but in a lower more tuck position the answers above are correct. May 26, 2015

A shopper asked: 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?

Rutgerus J: 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.

Darryl J: It's probably best because as you break your helmet in the padding conforms to the shape of your head. Also the Shark is best with an oval shaped head. May 26, 2015

Scott A: Best to go with the medium? May 27, 2015

shawn m asked: I have an Arai Vector 2, would this be better for my naked bike? Jun 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Codrin O: 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 May 26, 2015
