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

Shark Speed-R Ike Helmet 4.8 5 10 10
Great Product, tons of features, looks sweet, little fragile So I always figured that if there was any piece of equipment to spend a ton of money on it should be the helmet. Although this is pretty pricey, you get what you pay for here. The Speed-R helmet is by far the most comfortable helmet that I have ever had on my head (I'll admit the only other helmets I've worn were not of the highest quality), helmet gives you a full field of vision, and vents keeps your head from overheating. The matt finish does make the helmet super hot when youre not moving so watch out if youre using this in a city or an area that you'll be stopping often. Sizing I would say is a little large since of the other helmets I've tried on, I would say I am a large although the large of this helmet was too big. Revzilla did a great job on the exchange for a medium though. One phone call and a trip to the Ups store ad I had the exchange done in ONE DAY. The only other thing I'll say is I let my friend borrow this thing about a week after I got it and he returned it with a little chip out of the paint/exterior/whatever its made from. I haven't chipped it yet but im pretty careful with it so it might be a little fragile if youre always throwing your helmet onto concrete or banging it around when youre not wearing it. So watch out for that. Yep thats all I got. Hope this helped. September 3, 2013
Excellent helmet and great bang for the buck This was my first helmet purchase and I feel I made an excellent choice. It was between this, and a Shoei RF1100. After watching video reviews, trading emails with the revzilla gear geeks, searching the net for reviews, I went with the Shark Speed-R. I have about 550 miles in this helmet and various speeds, up to 100 mph. The helmet flows a good amount of air, especially without the chin curtain attached. I just recently attached the chin curtain to see how it affects helmet noise and there is a definite difference. There is still good air flow through the helmet with the chin curtain attached but not as much as without. The rider has to decide what is more important, less noise or more air flow. Ear plugs can also be used so it may be a moot point. I live in Hawaii and my head is always cool if moving faster than snail speed. I know many people are concerned about buffeting of the helmet. As this is the only helmet I have ever used, based on my limited experience with other helmets, I feel the speed-r does an awesome job in this department. I ride a triumph Street Triple, naked bike. When getting up to speeds of 75+ mph, to me, my helmet feels quite stable. In the higher speeds, I'm usually tucking down as my body is taking a big hit from the wind. The only times I can say that my head gets thrown around is when there are the sudden cross winds that hit from the side. If the wind is coming straight on, it's smooth sailing for my helmet. My head measured at about 57 1/2 cm and I bought the Medium. This fit my head perfectly. No hotspots. When new, the cheek pad felt real snug, but broke in nicely. It still is snug, giving a nice fit, but not overly. Weight wise, the small sticker which was attached to the helmet said 1650 g. I'm assuming that a larger helmet will be heavier. Again, this being my 1 and only helmet, I have nothing to compare it to. There are lighter helmets, but I have no issues with this. No neck pain or fatigue while wearing for extended periods. The sun visor is an awesome addition to the helmet and makes it very convenient when riding during daylight hours. Very easy to find and operate with gloved hands. I really love the face shield. I'm sold on its clarity. To me, it's so clear, the only reason I know it's there is because there is no wind hitting me in the face. That, combined with its thickness, makes it outstanding. Just adds an extra layer of protection to my face. A minor nit pick would be the addition of detents like the vision-r has along with a multi position visor setting like the Shoei RF1100 has, e.g. Locked, "cracked open". Shark claims that this helmet was designed with the naked bike rider in mind and it appears that they have done their homework. I would highly recommend this helmet, especially to fellow naked bike riders. I was really lucky when I purchased this helmet when I did as I see there has been a price increase. Even with this increase, the helmet is an excellent bang for the buck, especially the graphic helmets, and I would purchase again if damaged. March 27, 2013
Fantastic Helmet Great helmet, fits like a glove, I've had trouble finding the right size helmet, and was worried that I might have to return it, I'm 23inches around my head and large fit perfectly. The colors match great with my Atlantis 4 jacket and gloves, and my brand new f800r. I love the design of the helmet and the visor is great, doesn't distort your vision, and the inner visor is great since I wear glasses. Comes with the chin piece which was great, easy to put on and off. I look forward to using it for a long time. February 25, 2013
nice helmet fit great, looks great and the visor is very clear doesnt even seem like it is there February 4, 2013
Great lid! Fit, finish, style are all excellent. Venting is very good. No fogging on recent ride. One thing I don't like about the visor is that it's tough to find the lift tab with gloves on. It's annoying, but otherwise, no complaints at all. Overall, I really like this helmet. January 14, 2013
Excelente! Era um sonho ter este capacete, e em minha viagem para o EUA, pude comprá-lo na loja revzilla. Estou muito feliz com a compra, recomendo a todos! December 7, 2012
Shark Speed-R Helmet Another shark addition to my growing collection. I have difficulty finding stuff that fits my long/wide head and square jaw. This helmet fits the bill. Very similiar in fit to the RSI, which I found to be the best true fitting helmet, although I barely get away with some others. I would say its between an intermediate oval to long oval fit. Most of the time my jaw hangs out like in the shoei x12. This helmet fits great. Interior is plush and provides excellent wicking and comfort. Drop down sun visor has superior optics and great field of view. As many video review state the visor it the perfect length and width. Shark visors are by far the most optically correct with zero glare. Airflow is above average, noise is average. Vents/visor are easy to operate with gloves. Only complaint is Shark needs a rachet system for their visors. This works on friction like the Race R Pro. Overall awesome mid range price and helmet. The visor; is by far the best feature on this bucket. Happy riding. October 29, 2012
First time Shark helmet user and impressed I have tried and used many different helmet brands and always had issues with proper fit. Besides the Suomy helmets this is the only other brand that fit well and is right away comfortable. Nice plush interior with cut-outs for wearing glasses. A little heavier of a helmet, but I knew this when I purchased the helmet, as it has the additional sun visor feature, which works great and is easy to use. Airflow is good, but not great. Vision is excellent. Very little wind buffeting, but I have not been on the track yet at high speeds. Overall very good fit and finish. August 25, 2012

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

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
