Shark Speed-R Helmet - Solid Videos

Shark Speed-R Helmet - Solid Colors

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.


  • Includes Pinlock shield and lens 
  • 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 
  • Rear deflector stabilizer reduces helmet buffeting
  • Faceshield varies in thickness and is optically correct, scratch resistant and anti-fog coated
  • Completely remove and washable COOLMAX lining 
  • Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-fitted system to accommodate all types of glasses
  • ECE 2205 and DOT approved
  • Two shell sizes

Shark Speed-R Helmet - Solid 4.4 5 110 110
Worst helmet ive ever owned, no customer service period Hands down the worst helmet ive ever owned. The rear venturi came off around 140 mph. Once the rear venturi left the helmet air will not flow thru the helmet. Add that the helmet created insane buffeting after that too. But wait there's more! The "internal sun visor" is a complete joke. With the main visor down blocking all wind, the internal sun visor will deform and warp above speeds of 150 mph. Litterally you see visual distortion while it vibrates, i quit using the sun visor at any point i would surpass 100 mph. BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE... shark gave zero F's when contacted. They wouldn't even respond. The best answer i could get didnt even come from shark, it was other people online that needed to replace the rear venturi in forums. The general concensus is to ship this piece to france, and wait for it to be fixed.... its a few screws really? Just sale the rear venturi, if americans can save you from a world war im sure we can replace a rear venturi. October 2, 2015
Excellent looking melon protector that fits even better. I thought my old HJC helmet fit me well until I put this thing on. Super comfortable, excellent fit for my head shape. Love the built in sunvisor. Only good things to say about this helmet. Go for it. October 28, 2015
Falling apart I was excited to buy this helmet. It was my first full face helmet. The sun visor mechanism came in handy but after a while I found myself always riding with it down, so regular sun visor would do the job just fine. My dad bought the same helmet as we ride the same bike but we have different head sizes. No more than two months later problems started to occur. My dads visor is really hard to open and mine won't stay open. While riding on highway, the back plastic piece fell of my dad's helmet. Then I dropped my helmet while walking and the top plastic piece (ventilation) fell off. Really poor quality. And when we wanted to get it repaird, they told us it could take half a year.... WHAT?? (not Revzilla. Czech dealer) So overall I would not buy a Shark helmet again. Not worth the money. Also I forgot to mention that it gets too hot in the helmet during summer. September 1, 2015
In my 20 plus years of motorcycle riding, the Shark Speed-R is the best helmet I have ever owned. The Shark Speed-R is light weight, comfortable and has great design features including the easy to operate internal shaded eye shield. The Air vents are engineered in a way that ventilates adequately and can be opened and closed easily while riding. I chose the Scott Redding Replica helmet and am very pleased with the graphics and outer shell durability. This helmet is highly recommended for anyone who loves motorcycling and wants to ride safely, comfortably, with durability in mind...and looking good while you do it. September 14, 2015
Helmet is worth the price I have owned this helmet for 8 months and it is by far the best helmet I have owned. The padding is very soft and comfortable over long rides. One issue is that the padding is very thick, so the shell appears larger than many helmets and some downward vision is cut off because the shield is far from your face. This has never caused me any real issues. The visibility through the shield is amazing, it hardly fogs at all. When I first purchased the helmet I tried to put the shield down a few times because didn't think it was there. The added features are great; the internal sun visor is my favorite feature but the ear cut outs for speakers are awesome too. They completely alleviate the pressure my bluetooth speakers caused in my last helmet. I would 100% recommend this helmet. August 2, 2015
Great Helmet with a couple of problems Overall I love this helmet. Really good design and look. It's comfortable with average noise level. The Pinlock visor is outstanding. I could not fog it up no matter how hard I tried. I also love having an integrated sun visor that's easy to put up and down. My only real complaints about this helmet are the face sheild is all but impossible to open with gloved hands due to the mechanism used to hold it closed. Very weird design and frustrating when trying to allow more air in by opening the face sheild. Also the sunvisor keep coming disconected from the small plastic lever that lowers and raises it via the top of the helmet. Poor execution on this piece. But it's still a very aerodynamic, well fitting helmet. Installing the Shark tooth system was a pain due to my difficulty reinstalling the helmet liner once the Shark tooth was in place. If they fix the 2 issues with the visor lock and sunvisor opening/closing mechanism and maybe decrease the wind noise (that 1 is asking a lot); it would be just about perfect. June 8, 2015
Easy to find/use sun visor Built in sun visor is great. The slider on top of the helmet makes it easy to find while riding. I get lots of looks riding in the city. My head was actually between a large and medium so I went down to a medium. The only problem I have with this helmet has to do with me having high cheek bones. It sucks to wear until it breaks in. Once broke in its amazing. I use it on all my long trips because of the slide down visor. One of the other reviews mentioned they dropped theirs and some pieces broke. First off yes I think the pieces on the back feel like they would if dropped. Secondly, you shouldn't be dropping your helmet since even that can compromise the safety of any helmet It is true that the visor is a pain to open. Just open and close it 20 times before wearing and you should be fine. Just remember they designed this particular helmet to either be open or closed not in between. It feels great in a full tuck. Watch the video revzilla has, they're pretty spot on with their analysis of this helmet series. Love that you can use eye glasses with it. June 25, 2015
Good in Theory, Bad Quality Good Start: When I opened the box, played with all the levers, and tested the fit I was quite happy. It's an attractive but not overly aggressive or flashy helmet. The weight was a bit more than I expected, but not excessive. Packaging and the included helmet bag was on par for a $400 helmet. Visibility and comfort were nice. I'm afraid that's all I have that's nice to say about the helmet. Critical Failure: Within a days use of the product the drop down sun visor mechanism broke. The tiny tab that held it in place failed. This was extremely frustrating. Thankfully, it was still cold and riding weather was still few and far between. Standard Shark warranty service is 4 weeks at least. Revzilla was easy to work with and accepted my return with no fuss. A month goes by and I had my helmet back... temporarily fixed. I return home from an extended work trip to find it's riding season. I ride my bike for at least 4 trips a day when the weather permits. The sun visor mechanism failed four days into my work week! Totally unacceptable. Thankfully, Revzilla customer service came through and I'm moving on to a new brand. Other Gripes: The visor seal is very firm, but air seepage is persistent all around. In the summer you could call it good air flow. In winter I'd be concerned. Shark logo on front are just cheap stickers. Simply bumping them with gloves while trying to work vent levers can lift them. Very annoying, and low quality feel. May 8, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Robert K: Have tried this helmet on elsewhere in another country and when I tried to locate one in my country to buy I had no success as no-one stocks it so after browsing the internet I settled on Revzilla as their website marketing seemed very professional and the pricing seemed reasonable. I intend to purchase more from Revzilla if this first purchase gets top marks. Nov 2, 2015
Ross E: had the best flip down sun visor(most coverage) that I could find Aug 31, 2015
Daniel P: Great value in my opinion. Between the weight and the sun shield, looks and everything I consider it a well priced helmet.

Unfortunately I crashed, and my head hit the ground twice. I suffered no injuries aside from some scrapes on my hands and wrists. The helmet did what it was supposed to do. Nothing broke off of it, it still looks like it is in decent shape. I would have got another one, but I saw a deal on the NEXX XR1R model which was lighter weight so I got that.

Would highly recommend

Lucas F: Styling and its design propose. May 3, 2014
Samuel F: Beautiful helmet, great protection, drop down sunvisor, sick looks, real stable at speed, pretty quiet. Pretty much everything I want in a helmet. Mar 30, 2014
Robert K: I choose this because I wanted a newer helmet that would provide less buffeting (I ride a naked bike) and an internal visor that was still ECE2205 rated. Jan 31, 2014
Manuel C: The looks and the quality for the money. I though that it would work great for my two bike since I have a sport one and a more up right seating position. I was right! great helmet. Oct 14, 2013
A S asked: I'm riding a ducati streetfighter and thinking about buying either the Race-R, or the Speed-R. Which one do you think would be the best choice for me? I'm most concerned about noise level and airflow. Feb 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Ben M: I have never used a race-r but I can assure you that the speed r is very comfortable in regards to airflow, weight, and aerodynamic design. Noise level is acceptable, and buffeting is minimal. When you first get it, it will be uncomfortably snug if you sized it correctly. Do not despair, give it a couple hours to pack out and it will be brilliant. My favorite part of this helmet is the aerodynamic design features that reduce buffeting you will be happy with how little it throws you around at high speeds 150+ I could not hold my head up with my old helmet, this one cuts right through and the clarity of the optically correct face shield will make you hate any other helmet, the first day I wore it I kept thinking the shield was up because it is so clear.

Only downside is the decals are terrible On the flat black model. I took them off of mine and it looks absolutely sinister.

As always revzilla was great, fast shipping and answered every annoying question that I had about it before I bought it.

It's a lot of money but worth every penny!!

John A: how difficult was it to remove the decals? aren't they painted on? Oct 28, 2014
Scott C: Hey A S,
I removed the windscreen on my Hyperstrada due to turbulent airflow with my height/helmet combo, but now it works well out in the open. Noise levels seem about average to Arai and Shoei helmets I've owned and the internal visor is a huge plus for me. I didn't really notice airflow until it started getting cold out, and it never felt hot even in the high 80s. The build quality is up there too and it came with a Pinlock shield but I never needed it. That internal visor is what swayed me over the Race-R and it's really useful with most of my riding in the city or suburban back roads.

Alan L: I don't know about the race-r helmet, but the Speed-R is awesome. I think the airflow is great, but like all helmets, when at a stand still, it does get slightly hot. The vents are easily accessible. The noise level is low to moderate, but it comes with this chin piece which helps greatly in reducing the noise. It would probably be a little better for you since you have the Ducati and our sitting position is slightly different. So the Speed-R might actually work better for you than me. Feb 6, 2014

Juan C: Well the speed r is a very good helmit I'm happy with my choice I'm not quit sure on the race r but the speed r is comfortable well made the are flow is good on them warm days but the only thing is it's a bit noisy if u ride with the face shild up i hear a whistling nose but when the face shild is down is not to bad that doesn't really bother me well hope it helps u out on your choice but what every one you pick it's a good choice lat me know if u have any more questions ... Feb 6, 2014

Ron G: To be honest I have not ridden the Race-R but at high speeds the Speed-R does cause my eyes to water a little due to all the air flow coming in. It is better with the chin skirt in place. If I had the money I probably would have gone with an Arai helmet. The noise is not bad in this helmet, I would say it could be better but by no means bad. For the price offered here and the construction and materials used this is a very good safe helmet at a competitive price. Feb 6, 2014
Reply to Ron Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Daniel W: The only other helmet I have used is a shoei tzr and I love my shark speed r. The noise level is about the same. The airflo seems to be better ( haven't done much riding in summer yet ) the only thing the shoei has on it is the size. The speed r is a little on the big side but weighs about the same. I would say either of those would be a good decision. I believe the speed r is the entry level one so you can't go wrong Feb 6, 2014
Reply to Daniel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Paul K: If it's noise level and airflow that you're most worried about, I think the Speed-R is a better choice than the Race-R, especially on a naked bike. The Race-R is known to be a noisy helmet, and the venting is designed for a more aggressive seating position. Feb 6, 2014
Reply to Paul Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Benjamin K: The Speed-R is noticeably more quiet than my last helmet and has very little buffeting issues. Highly recommend based on those qualities. Makes me ride faster. Feb 7, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Daniel M: The lack of a windstopper doesn't cause noise,and you can expect some air to come up through the opening.I've noticed very little to no buffeting riding a Moto Guzzi 750 Breva.This is the second Shark helmet I've owned and feel they are of very high quality and a good value. Jan 12, 2014

Vernon L asked: I'm looking at purchasing a Speed-R Duke later this month when they are released. My head measure 23.75" , Shark's Large ends at 23.6" and XL begins at 24.0". What size, a L or XL, would you recommend based on how your helmet fits? For fit do they seem to run small or large? Thanks. Mar 17, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matthew R: I have a rather large dome piece myself. If I were you, as you are on the cusp, I would still opt to just the Large. If you have to much wiggle room, you will find your helmet being buffeted up from wind gust or improper leg placement. When it comes to your noggin, play it safe, and keep it snug. Mar 17, 2014
Reply to Matthew Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Paul Y: I'd definitely lean to the L side. One, your head is closer to that than the XL (diff of .15" vs .25"). Also, the lining will 'break in' a bit over the first few weeks of wear (mine did at least) and I suspect the L will fit. YMMV OFC, but that's my 2cents Mar 17, 2014
Reply to Paul Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
David B: Obviously with everyone's head size/shape being unique there is a bit of subjectivity. But I bought an XL in the Shark EvolineST full face flip up for my street helmet and I bought the Speed-R in L for track days. Since wearing the size L Speed-R for 10 track days last summer I now wish I had bought my street helmet in an L instead of XL.

I'd suggest taking a bunch of the same measurement on your head to get a good idea. Honestly when you are getting down to a 0.15" I highly doubt I could measure my own head to that accuracy. I got as much as 1/2" variance on my measurements depending on how I wrapped the tape around my head.

Measure your head a few times and make sure you settle on 23.75, and if so I'd think the L would be fine. I think many people have a tendency to get helmets that are a little too big out of worry of a helmet being too tight and hurting. I've learned to err on the smaller side when in doubt.

Au N: I measure my forehead at 22.2" . I bought a Small. The fit was just about perfect. Caveats: I typically wear a 1/4" buzz cut so I have very little hair to compress, and I am usually not too picky about fit. I average about 6,000 miles/year, about 60/40 commuting / sport touring. Mar 17, 2014

Marco G: I have virtually nothing bad to say about the helmet.
I ride with plugs in. So noise levels are negligible. That's not to say that's the ONLY reason I don't have issues with the noise. I have ridden without plugs in my R but never noticed that it's PARTICULARLY loud. So no complaints there. In terms of buffeting I ride a Speed Triple it's naked like your Street-fighter and I notice no more buffeting OR lift (also very important in a naked helmet) than my Shoei RF-1100.
The only complaint if it can be called that is that it doesn't fit MY head like my 1100. But it does fit. Just not as well as my 1100. So is that a knock against my R? No not really just an observation. Your head may differ.
Of note; I bought Shoei's full face helmet with internal sun visor and wore it. I stopped and continue to ride with my R. It's the only helmet I need.

Dan C: I have the Speed-R and think it has the most features for the money of any full faced helmet. The Speed-R brings the noise down some but you may still want to wear ear plugs if you normally do for additional comfort. The air flow is nothing to write home about, but it breaths enough at speed that I don't have any issues. At slower speeds I open the visor a little. It is light and the visor is thick. Not a lot of air comes up from the bottom in cool weather. The Race-R is for racing, I thought, and the design criteria is a little different for that application, but it probably is a fine helmet. I don't think you will regret the Speed-R though. Feb 6, 2014

Stephen B: I have no complaints about the speed R. I purchased it last summer after owning a Shoei. I ride a Ducati ST2 so my riding position is a little more upright. I just couldn't see spending a boatload of money for the Shoei so I decided on Shark. It's a different fit but a good helmet. Noise level is not bad, but I also wear earplugs which mutes wind anyway. I chose the SpeedR because I wasn't interested in paying more money for graphics when I can do my own. Feb 7, 2014

Dana W: I haven't tried a Race-R so I cant' make a comparison. I've worn the Speed-R for 1 season now and I really like it. It's the best helmet I've owned and I've had some good ones (e.g. Shoei X12?, Shark RSR2 etc.). The Speed-R is also the quietest helmet I've had; it's very quiet and stable no matter what your head position. The air flow is average to very good I would say. Feb 6, 2014

A shopper asked: Looking to see if it will keep cold air out in the winter / wind turbulence off my Sena microphone. Apr 17, 2013

Maximus: Just got mine, comes with an optional/removable chin curtain that is very comfortable. Although it is mesh, so maybe not enough for cold winter riding (When I say cold, I'm from Canada so cold is close to freezing). Works great for reducing wind noise and it's very comfortable on your skin. Kind of makes getting the helmet on and off a bit more of a pain though - it gets all up in your nose while you pry out your head Apr 18, 2013
Reply to Maximus Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Shark Speed-R Helmet does include a chin curtain option. However, it is not pre-installed as with other Shark models. It is packaged separately with the helmet.

Moreover, though it is not possible to estimate just how much the chin curtain will affect turbulence or cold air, we will say that it does reduce both effects significantly. Unveil at your leisure!

TiburonWrangler: What size? Better helmets come in 2 or 3 shell sizes. I went by the same 1450g claim when I chose the Speed-R sight unseen. My small Arai Quantum/e is just a smidge more than than that on our kitchen scale. My small Speed-R is 1663g, same scale. That said, I agree with the guys on WebBikeWorld, a little more weight is not as noticeable on-bike as things like fit, buffeting, wind noise, etc. Feb 5, 2013

William W: It probably depends on the size, my XL weighs 1650 g as labelled on the helmet. This is considerably lighter than my last full-face, it also feels nice and light when in use -- granted this doesn't change the actual weight. Sep 18, 2012

A shopper asked: I've checked out the Shark website and their wording is very..... nondescript. I just want to know what materials go into the shell of the helmet. Anthony said it is a Fiber-composite I believe (Could be wrong) and Shark just states that they used a "Long Fibre Technology Construction". So does that mean it's a fiberglass composite? or what?

RevZilla: The Shark Speed-R Helmet has a shell that is a Fiberglass composite construction. A fiberglass composite construction is made by taking long fibers of glass and bonding them together. The glass fibers are created under laboratory conditions, to ensure that they have zero imperfections (unlike the glass fiber found in house hold insulation, which does have imperfections and explains why it is so soft and easy to tear). The result is a glass fiber that is extremely flexible, strong, and light weight. It is very similar to carbon fiber, but much less expensive to produce. Sep 21, 2012

TiburonWrangler: The back of the shell says "High technology multi-axial fibre structure." The SHARP helmet testing website says "Fibreglass".

patrick c: I was on the boundary of medium and large myself. I got the large and it fits like a glove. I would get the large if you are on the boundary. Great helmet by the way. Jun 8, 2015

A shopper asked: Does this helmet come with a pinlock ready face shield? (in other words, do I need to buy the pinlock lens insert only, or do I also need to buy a pinlock ready face shield as well?). Nov 3, 2014

Steve L: Mine did not come with a pin-lock ready shield. The pin-lock shield for the Speed-R and the Race-R Pro has a recessed area on the inside of the shield into which the pin-lock inset fits. Nov 3, 2014
