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 un-faired motorcycle riders.
Double blade air spoiler: positioned at the rear of the Speed-R, it allows the air to flow above and below the blade, hence the dual venturi effect to extract warm air from the helmet.
Spoiler/stabilizer: at its rear base trim the Speed-R has a spoiler, which stabilizes the helmet and the cancels the buffering effect. The immediate benefit is no air turbulence running inside the helmet and greater stability at a steady speed.
Latest generation composite ‘long fibre’ construction
Integrated, drop down sun visor
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
I just purchased this helmet last week and rode from Charlotte NC to Atlanta GA, here are my thoughts.
Style: I have an orange honda cbr600rr and the orange duke helmet matched it perfectly. Its had darker grey reflective graphics and an aggressive style. The helmet looks bad ***. You can also just rock the internal sun-visor for the "Top Gun" look.
Visor: You have awesome vision and the visor has no warp at all. There is a thin groove around the inside of the visor that houses the anti fog insert (which comes with the helmet and is awesome) but sometimes when light hits the groove you get a bad glare which was a little annoying. This being said, there is an internal sun-visor which gets rid of the glare instantly. The sun-visor mechanism is on top of the helmet and easy to find with and style of glove. The action is very smooth to lock it into place. Taking off the exterior visor is extremely easy. Back to the anti fog lens, the helmet comes with one but you can buy multiple tints. The rubber insert is way better than any "anti fog lens" i've ever used.
Fit: The top of my head fit perfectly. I purchased a medium and im around a 7 1/4 fitted cap. However the cheek pads were extremely tight. After riding about 7 hours total over 3 days the pads are still very stiff. The inside of the helmet was very soft and made of comfortable materials. The helmet is also very light!
Airflow: The chin piece provides great air flow. I couldnt really feel the top at all. At just the right angle I can get the top vents to really let the air in, but otherwise it seems to not do to much. I ride with the chin guard on, but taking it off would obviously add more air flow.
-Awesome lens (antifog inserts)
-Internal sun-visor (and easy to use mechanism)
-Really stiff tight cheek pads
-Unimpressed with the shark fin airflow system
Would I recommend this helmet?
Absolutely! Once the cheek pads get worn in a bit ill be a happy camper!
Thanks guys I hope this helped!

Great features, Fit and Style.
Great Helmet everything I expected from A Shark. This is my second one and will not be my last Shark helmet either when this needs replaced it will be with a Shark. The air flow is better than expected, all I have to do is tip my head forward and the air flows down the back of my neck. Noise level is very low.

Looks great! Bit warm.
I had to get a small because medium was too big, at first I was biting my cheeks but the foam has formed to my face nicely.
Sena SMH-10 fits so well that it could have installed itself.
The colours of the black and white suit my bike really nicely and it is overall just a great looking helmet.
The dark tinted internal visor, I could never buy another helmet without one!
Visor comes off in 10 seconds for extremely easy cleaning.
That is all I can really say good about this helmet though.
The vent on top, I wonder if it is even a vent or if it just for looks, I get absolutely no air flow at 110km/h whether the toggle is forward or backward, leading to the top of my head getting quite toasty and uncomfortable on rides longer than an hour. (Note: This might just be a defect with my helmet and other helmets like it may work fine.)
The helmet is noisy, earplugs or music earphones make it a lot more bearable.
The visor has 2 things which I hate EXTREMELY!
1. The screws to tighten or loosen how easy the visor opens and closes always come loose after an hour or two riding, to a point where the visor has to be held open with your hand. Keep a 1.5mm Alen key handy if you plan to go on a long ride.
2. The stupid little clip to hold the visor shut is nearly impossible to get unclipped while you are wearing gloves, I never clip it shut any more because of this.
Looks fantastic, feels great and hugely comfortable, has an internal visor if you don't wear sunglasses.
Not great for long rides or hot days.
Ear plugs or earphones for music. Don't clip the visor shut. Keep a 1.5mm Alen key handy if you plan to go on a long ride.
Maybe try a Vision-R or a S700.

Duffie C: I have a solid black version of this helmet that I ordered from overseas. At this point (a few years and drops later) I am ready to replace it. I really like the color scheme and the pinlock visor is unbeatable when commuting in the bay area.Mar 6, 2014
A shopper asked:I am planning to get Speed R-Duke Orange helmet, but in the video I hear that its not orange but looks more like Red? is that right or did I hear it wrong? I have a Bike with orange and black stripes so I would like the helmet to match my bike. please advise.Jul 23, 2014
Reid L:I called revzilla to ask them this exact question. I have an orange 08 CBR. The helmet I received was orange and matches my bike very well! After looking around at other sites it appears Shark does make a red version of the helmet.Oct 4, 2014
