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.

Features:

  • 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 Ike Helmet 4.6 5 61 61
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.

Great all around helmet I ride both a cruiser and a sport bike. I bought this helmet primarily because I needed a light color helmet for summer riding and I really likes the SHARP rating this helmet got. I have a shoie gt air and a shoie qwest as well. This shark helmet has superior aerodynamics and is a lot lighter than the other two helmets mentioned above. The air flow isn't bad without the chin curtain (removable). It is also a lot more comfortable - better quality interior but still a tight race fit (which I really like in my helmets) but it's not as restricting as the gt air is. The built in sun visor come down lower so no irritating bright strip at the bottom of your view. AS others have mentioned the shield latch is a bit hard to open (or feel) with gloves on and there are no detentes (I knew this going in and have no issue with not having them). The shield is pin lock ready and does come with a clear pin lock shield - there's some confusion in the reviews about this. All in all I have no real cons except the shield latch being hard to find or open with gloves. July 21, 2014
Highly Functional and Stylish This product (the Shark Speed-R helmet) is exceptional. First, the helmet comes in it's own individual box from the manufacturer, as opposed to being exposed. Upon seeing the helmet in person, I noticed that the visor sent with the helmet was pinlock-ready. Then, after closer examination of the box, I noticed that a pinlock shield is actually included with the helmet. The fitment is true to size, and fits my head perfectly. The cheekpads, although initially tight, have broken in well and wick moisture in a comfortable manner. The shell is light (almost unrealistically light in comparison to my older scorpion helmet) and rigid. The Chimney vent is functional in almost all riding positions, and extremely easy to operate. The chin vent is most effective in the 3/4 position, but will work in others (it is also just as easy to operate). The integrated sun visor is easy to find with a glove, and has more than adequate coverage. There is also a chin curtain included that reduces wind noise substantially for longer rides, although I would not recommend it for a blast down a back-road as it can inhibit ventilation slightly (not a huge amount though, almost so little I didn't mention it). In all, this is a spectacular piece of engineering. It contains every function and feature I was searching for in a sport helmet, and does so far more seamlessly than other manufacturers have yet managed. July 18, 2014
Superior Helmet for Long Distance Riders Excellent Helmet if willing to pay for it! It looks aggressive and badass. Vision is crystal clear and handles very well in heavy rain. Very comfortable and easy to wash the interior padding. Drop down sun visor is my favorite feature and looks SOOO sweet in action. The only down fall is like all front visors it scratches very easily and unfortunately you have to order a new one directly from the manufacture (Not in the USA). July 8, 2014
great comfort i used a friend same helmet, and it was a perfect fit. No pressure points and the vents and visor was very functional. June 23, 2014
Tell you the truth it's just an avarage helmet. the helmet is average there is nothing that would stick out to a buyer other than the color and design or the outside looks. it runs slightly smaller in size. the 1 thing that I really like is the anti fog screen. On cold mornings the screen is nice and clear. I also like shark helmets because of the shark tooth their com. System. Its very slick and has a built in compartment for the battery pack. The design/ the looks is cool looking. you can find other helmets that has same safety measures in lower prices like Shoei even in Built witch is a Cycle Gear own brand. Noise wise it's not the greatest, when you duck down to avoid the wind hitting you, you can hear the noise getting much louder. like all the other helmets in the market it has some pros and cons what I would suggest is that you should buy it try it on see if you like it. Revzilla is great source for buying the Shark pro speed r. They have great customer survice And if you don't like it then you can return it. Easy as that. June 23, 2014
Visor is Impossible to open with Gloves on When I first opened the box I loved the way it looked then I tried it on. The cheek pads are so big and press on my face so hard that if I open my mouth I can't close it without biting my cheeks. I did read other reviews that talked about. this and said the pads will pack in after a while and become more comfortable. So I took their word for it. The main problem is that the visor sort of locks down on a small pin but has no external tab to grab on to open. It is IMPOSSIBLE to open with gloves on. On a hot day I like to flip my visor open when sitting at a red light to get some air. You can not do this without taking your gloves off. Ridiculous design! But now I can't return it because I've ridden with it. So I paid over $400 for a helmet that I don't like. The guys at Revzilla are the best but I do not expect them to take it back after its been used so I'm stuck with it. I can not recommend this helmet based on that visor and a little because of the cheek pads. June 15, 2014
It's a keeper! Things I love about this helmet: - Space at the temples for eyeglass frames. This is really awesome. I’ve tried on dozens of helmets and Shark is the only brand that makes riding with glasses a breeze. Not only are my glasses easy to put on, but since the temples aren’t squeezed, movement of the helmet doesn’t shift the glasses on my face. - Shield can be easily changed with the helmet still on your head. Makes it easy to change from dark to clear shield. - Internal sun visor. On sunny days I prefer to use a dark smoke shield; no helmet manufacturer makes an internal sun visor dark enough for my eyes. But in changing conditions the internal sun visor is awesome to have as a backup. - Very quiet, blocking wind noise effectively. I can hear intercom conversations with no trouble. - Pockets in the EPS liner for intercom speakers and a shell design that made it very easy to install my Cardo system. - Looks great with the silver mirror face shield. The silver mirror shield is practical too - darker than I expected, which is good! Other helpful tips: - The shield rotates smoothly up and down, rather than having “stops” at varying degrees of openness. Initially I was concerned about this. However, the shield will stay open about 8mm at the bottom by simply closing it but not latching it. Internal shape: Compared to my Icon Alliance, the Speed-R is a rounder shape, whereas the Icon is a longer oval. Verdict: Great helmet. June 14, 2014

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

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

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
