Shark Speed-R Ike Helmet

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 
  • 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

Great buy Ive worn the helmet for about three weeks of riding and it already feels broken in. The cheeks pads were so stiff at first but now they dont squeeze my face uncofortably. I was at the edge of the large in this helmet and I thought it would always be snug but I find I can push the helmet forward and theres room in the back (my first helmet normally I just pull it down and strap it) I keep the DLoops tighter to use up the space in the back I like my helmet snug. Field of view is good, I would like to have tried on the Vision R but I prefered this style a lot more. Bang for the buck factor, tint visor is GREAT! Bought because of the recommendation for naked riding (the bike, not me) Sidenote: I have a CB500F not the R. December 2, 2014
great helmet poor visor lock I really like this helmet. It looks nice fits on par with size chart. I think the visor change system is the best around. Shoei is nice but you have to stick your fingers in that little hole and pull. It sucks. The visor lock on this helmet works fine with thin gloves but I cannot get it open with my heated Alpinestars on so I have to return it and find something else. I wish I could ride in it but then I couldn't return it so can give review on anything else. November 20, 2014
Nice comfortable helmet I've got a fairly narrow head shape and this helmet is very comfortable. No hot spots and no pressure points so far. Cheek pads were very tight initially, but have softened up and broken in after a month of almost daily use. I ride a Ducati Monster, so no fairing. This helmet is very quiet compared to others I've used when in the airstream. It does start to whistle when i'm tucked down behind the gauges. Visor latching mechanism could be better. it is hard to release the visor. You really have to get a finger under the tab and pull outwards on it to release which is tougher with thicker gloves. Visor is good at not fogging up and when it does fog while sitting at a light, it defogs very quickly once air gets moving again. Overall, I really like the helmet and the amenities for audio are very nice. November 3, 2014
Value for money..... I bought this helmet a year ago. I have more then 1500 miles on it.... Great comfort... Whiz sound when you turn your head...took few months for break in chic pads...great sun visor...chin air vent broke on me... May be I was too hard on it...only thing I did not like about it was visor lock. If you are in traffic and wants to open it with gloves on, it's not easy. Don't have prob with fog.... All in all great looking helmet. October 4, 2014
love it The internal sun visor is great and easy to find while riding. It could be darker though, I don't think it's as dark as the mirror tinted visor I have on another helmet. But it does the job on a sunny day, just not if you're riding into the sun. I like how there's very little room below the sun visor to let in light. Ventilation is great, can actually feel it. I don't have a hard time unlocking the visor from the down position like some others have said. With gauntlet and summer gloves I feel the tab with my thumbnail and press up. September 15, 2014
Best Helmet I've Used So Far High Points: 1. Compared to a Shoei GT Air Graphic (~$600) the Shark Speed-R is both cheaper ($439) and ECE 2205 rated. 2. Awesome feature set: Flip down sun visor, Pinlock ready face shield and pinlock lens included, Rear Spoiler, Chin Curtain, Removable liner, Easyfit system for us glasses wearers. . .and shark tooth ready! 3. Great Style Review Notes: -Shark Speed-R cuts a better profile in the wind compared to my Shoei Qwest which = less pressure on neck (possibly a combination of lighter weight or construction and better aerodynamics -Smooth action (no detents) for face shield give it a surprisingly plush feel -Magnetic closure for face shield can be undone one-handed with a gloved hand contrary to other reviews (one finger on front of visor to control upward motion and left thumb simultaneously puts pressure on magnetic clasp to weaken/loosen seal. . .then simply raise the shield up!) -Drop down sun visor is really great to have--no more changing out shields or buying more shields -If you wear a Shoei helmet the Shark should be true to size; no real pressure points -Looks Great! *NOTE -I didn't give it 5 out of 5 for durability or airflow because I haven't sufficiently tested the helmet in a wide range of conditions to verify August 20, 2014
Great helmet Awsome aggressive looking helmet. Airflow is good, but it can get really hot in the summer days. Internal sun visor is a great feature. The padding a little thick and it doesn't suck up moisture as good as helmets with hydradry. Everything else is wonderful! Little buffeting for awesome head checks, comes with pin lock visor, visor comes off so easy, and did I mention it looks awesome! August 11, 2014
Great product Great helmet for the price. As far as fit goes I was right in between a large and extra large, went with the extra large and the fit is great. I like the option to be able to wear sun glasses with the removable padding pieces. Helmet finish is top notch and having an optically correct lense makes a big difference. The visor clip that secures the visor in the closed position takes a little getting used to when opening the visor with gloves on but it's not a deal breaker. The chin strap secures really well and having the snap keeps the excess from flying around while riding. All in all I would definitely recommend this helmet and would purchase future Shark products.

Julian C: Great price for the features. Looks nice, is geared towards naked bikes, but works on all. The dual visor is a pretty great. Oct 9, 2013
Ron G asked: I bought this helmet for multiple reasons but one obviously was for the DOT approval. Where the heck does it say it is DOT approved though? I just got the helmet today and am worried about since I cant see the approval. Oct 11, 2013

Ron G: So I am a dummy. I was not part of the ZLA army when I bought this helmet and ordered it from a company oversees to save some cash. Turns out they dont put the DOT on the helmet because it is not needed over in Europe. I hope you will be happy to hear that I shipped it back and bought the helmet from ZLA today. I am eagerly awaiting the helmet with the DOT emblem hahaha. I need it to get on base to ride my bike to work.. Learned something new today. Thanks guys for all your help.

Benjamin O: Hey Ron, congrats on your purchase. If you turn the helmet around to te back, the DOT is printed right beneath the ECE 22-05 cert. It has a gray/white camo look and is super imposed over the flying bird design. Oct 11, 2013
Reply to Benjamin Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Ashwin B: I have the same helmet, and it has 'ECE 22-05 & DOT' printed on the back below the shark Speed-R IKE sticker. So I am surprised you are unable to find the DOT print on yours. Oct 11, 2013
Reply to Ashwin Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Ron G: Mine just says High Technology Multi-axial fibre structure under the Shark Speed-R Ike Oct 11, 2013
Ashwin B: Hmmm, my helmet says the same, however it has the DOT stamp right below it! you should probably bring this up with Revzilla! your helmet could be a one off case where they forgot to put the DOT sticker. Oct 11, 2013
Travis K: Mine has the DOT label right in the middle at the bottom on the rear of the helmet. It should say ECE 22-05 and immediately below that should be the DOT. Oct 11, 2013

A S asked: Does the lack of a chin windstopper cause any noise, buffeting or let a little too much airflow inside the helmet in colder weather? Jan 12, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Allen K: There is a chin windstopper included with this helmet, although, I would recommend gluing it in as it tends to slide out when I hit it with my gloves or move my head around a lot. I don't notice any excess noise, but I'm probably partially deaf lol. The helmet sits on your head with the chin piece tilted downwards, so buffeting isn't ever an issue. It's an awesome helmet, gets comments whenever I stop for gas (quite a bit on my carb'ed R1), and is worth every penny I spent on it. Quality construction. Jan 13, 2014

John M: My helmet shipped with a removable chin windstopper. I also have a balaclava I wear when it's really cold (in the 30's). Riding with the chin windstopper cuts down on the wind quite a bit, and I can get away without the balaclava on short rides. You definitely notice a lot more airflow into the helmet when riding with the windstopper out. Jan 13, 2014

ben h: Since it comes with the chin piece no. It is removable for the summer however don't forget where you put it when winter comes. Jan 12, 2014

A shopper asked: From looking at the manual on Sharks site it looks like the internal Sun Shield replaceable. If it is replaceable do you sell the replacements? Sep 18, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jesse M: Yes it is. Most dealers don't have them on hand. Your best bet is Ebay and check in with UK and French sellers. They seem to have the widest selction of visors and replacement parts. I find most North American Dealers never have the tint choices or parts I need. Oct 29, 2012

RevZilla: "Ike" is just what Shark chose to call this specific graphic in the Speed-R line. Maybe they like fruity candy made by guys named Mike. Maybe they like 50s era American presidents. Who knows? The French are wacky! Apr 19, 2013
