Shark Speed-R Sauer 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 Sauer Helmet 4.5 5 82 82
Quality Control = BAD Had my Speed-R Sauer helmet for about 3 weeks before the pin that holds the hub in for the visor snapped. Had to return it to RevZilla since they handle Shark's warranty. Even though Shark has a 5 year guarantee, their website is terrible and is mostly written in French. Warranty is handled through RevZilla, which is fine, but I'm out of a helmet for about 5-9 weeks (including a week to ship it to RevZilla - I'm guessing it takes another week for them to ship it to Shark). I bought a reflective smoke visor for another $80 and it just sits around now since there's no helmet for it. Not sure what to do with it as I'd probably not buy another Shark helmet. The front chin vent was cheaply made and was on the verge of snapping off. The chin sock to keep the air out is cheaply made as well and fit on my some slight friction between the liner and the helmet. It always came loose and I was always afraid it was going to go flying off while on the highway. The helmet is not as quiet as I thought it would be. Also the cheek pads are crazy tight. Not sure if you can adjust the size either. And the VISOR. It's finicky to adjust the tightness. It doesn't stay in place. It kinda sucks. Really bad. The hub ended up snapping off in mine. Would not recommend this helmet. April 22, 2015
Awesome looks, c&$p quality Ive had this helmet for 2 years and done 10,000kms with it. Love the looks, love the fit just the quality let it down. After 3-4 months the visor could not stay up, after a year the pivot snapped off meaning I could not ride with a visor. Under the large looking plastic cover there is a tiny aluminium screw maybe 1-2mm wide. I continued to use as a summer lid with sunglasses, the final straw was the hinges for the front vent snapping causing it to flap around. It's also worth mentioning this helmet fouls on Alpinestars Tech 1-R jacket hump. Helmet size XL jacket USA 40. It's a real shame as its a cool looking comfy lid. Riding was 90% canyon carving, 10% commuting. '08 CBR600 RR April 16, 2015
Almost perfect. Had this helmet for a little over a year and have no complaints. Vents well and the internal visor works great. With the exterior visor down (but not locked) it provides additional airflow to the face. When riding the rear spoiler prevents buffeting at speed (in the 3/4 tuck position). DOT and ECE rated, and 4/5 stars from SHARP. Visually the Speed R looks bigger than I'd like (see photo with my Shoei X11), but I attribute that to the internal visor and the extra space required (or the "Shark Fin" interior foam shape). The graphic is painted on (as opposed to stickers on my X11) which I do like. However it lacks a clear coat, and is easily scratched (see photos). Also I dropped it on the crown when carrying it (dangling from the chin strap) and the top vent cover popped off. Nothing super glue can't fix. April 9, 2015
Great helmet So I won't repeat a lot of the praise this helmet has in the reviews except to summarize: great helmet, great style in my eyes, really nice sun visor, awesome pinlock visor included. Now to the questions you probably have if you read any other reviews. People say that the visor lock is crazy hard to unlock, and they're right. But. Once you have the helmet for a week you'll learn how to open it no problem. Seriously, no issue unless you're wearing the thickest gloves ever. People also complain about the lack of detents. This can be solved by just tightening the visor with the included allen. Usually I (commuter & occasional spirited riding) just rest the shield on the lock but don't actually lock it. Good "city mode". Now for my subjective thoughts given my (potentially weird) head size/shape. I think I'm right between a medium and a large, but got the large because the shell shape fit really well. This helmet is very quiet, with the exception of wind noise in the helmet from the extra space in the liner for glasses (it comes with pads that solve the issue). I'm also about to put my cardo comm system in the helmet, which should make it even quieter. Note that the shell actually has indents for the speakers of a system. Overall I'd say very quiet on the helmet. The helmet is pretty aerodynamic, but I'd definitely go either full tuck or out in the wind. I know it's a naked helmet, but I liked it too much. On my Daytona 675, the buffeting on a windy day at 50/60 mph on the edge of the stream of the windshield is noticeable. Really good airflow though. Man. Included chin curtain for cooler mornings, good cooling with the vents open. Verdict: top notch, high quality, totally worth it. Sorry for the ramble, just going for more info for everyone.

Excellent Helmet! Well worth the money. Shark to me just has a special kind of look to them that I couldn't find in any other manufacturer. They always have appealing designs that are bold without being cheesy like so many other helmets. The internal sun visor is an excellent feature, and the chin shape/design is perfect for mounting a go pro with a flat adhesive mount. If I had to find a fault with it, I'd echo other reviews and say that the latch for opening the visor is a little small when using gloves, but it's not a huge issue by any means. Overall, well worth the money and I'm glad I bought it! March 9, 2015
great feel, great look, great helmet!! This is the second Shark helmet that I have owned, my first being the RSR2. These helmets fit exactly like they should according to the sizing chart, they are light and very comfortable. My Shark RSR2 helmet is 9 years old and still looks brand new, showing that Shark helmets also have a very long life span if you take care of them. April 8, 2015
Disappointing :/ I cannot recommend this product; Dropped helmet from standing position. -Ok, sure.. wtf, nice job. But, I did not expect the Sunvisor mechanism (FX45102P ) and the High ventilation component (VE45206P) to fly off. The result was I lost the mechanism and 2 tabs broke on the ventilation component. No big deal, my fault. I want to fix it. **Try getting spare parts!! The cheek pads are impossible to find and no support or spare parts exist. Rev cannot help and Shark is a Black Hole. I will not be purchasing another Shark helmet and cannot recommend this product March 27, 2015
Good helmet. I'm new to riding, and was borrowing a friends helmet until I bought the Shark Speed-R. It's much lighter, more stable (I ride a naked 99 SV650), quieter, and the integrated sun visor is great! However, the only issue that I have had is that the pin that clips into the sun visor popped out...doesn't seem like it "seats" very well...at least in mine. I'm contacting RevZilla/Shark to see what they can do about it. I'm sure it won't be a problem to get a replacement part because they both have great customer service. Would definitely recommend this helmet to a friend. March 23, 2015

Jonathan Z: I love the aggressive design. Mar 27, 2015
O W: love the looks. Feb 10, 2015
Joshua A: Wanted a helmet that was ECE rated and that had a dropdown sun visor. Only problem is the visor lock latch is hard to release with gloves on. Jan 15, 2015
Juan J G: Designed for naked bike street riding, looks great im both white and the grey. The drop down sun visor drops down to a good position and the anti fog windscreen is helpful. Jan 14, 2015
Brandon H: It matches my Agusta F3 800 perfectly and offers great protection, is light weight pus the internal sun visor is excellent Oct 10, 2014
Nathan K: It looked great and based on reviews it seemed to work quite well. Doing research realized its one of sharks higher end helmets, and my brain is worth the amount of money this helmet asks for. Aug 27, 2014
Derek C: Brand reputation, SHARP safety rating, internal sun visor, venting, style and look of helmet. Most internal sun visor helmets look dorky and do not have a sporty look to them like this helmet has. It looks like the racer model, uses the same shield. Also the paint scheme of the helmet looks awesome, could have opted for the carbon model but I think the painted model looks better. Jul 16, 2014
Louis-Daniel B: looking for a better looking and more quiet helmet than the low end stuff. Jul 9, 2014

Benjamin E: Typically, manufacturers make a few different size "Plastics" (meaning the outermost part of the helmet) and then stuff it with differing layers of foam and padding in order to get different sizes. For example. an XL, L, and M all might have one outside perimeter size and different amounts of foam inside. Oct 11, 2014

A shopper asked: What is the noise level like at highway speed? I intend on using a Sena SMH10 for intercom as I currently do with my Scorpion Exo R410 airline helmet, and it is hard to hear for both parties when going highway speed. How well does the spoiler work at eliminating the buffering effect and making it quiet inside the helmet? And how well can you hear the headset or be heard by other headsets at highway speed? Thanks! Mar 12, 2015

Robert C: I've never used an intercom system, but frequently ride with headphones in. Using this as a measuring stick, I'd say the noise attenuation is pretty good. I keep the volume low enough that I can hear the bike and traffic around me at city speeds. At highway speeds, and the same volume, I can still hear the music clearly, with of course some wind noise in the background.

Not sure how well the spoiler works for wind noise, but it does stabilize the helmet quite well. Even at high speeds, there isn't any vibration or feeling that the helmet wants to pull your skull off your shoulders.

I ride a superbike, and am referring to riding while tucked in.

Gregory A: I often use headphones when riding and can hear the music just fine. I have a pretty loud mv agusta and at higher revs I don't think I would be able to hold an audible conversation, but I've used my LG bluetooth while riding and answered phone calls just fine. Not the quietest helmet but all in all I am satisfied with it. Mar 12, 2015

Scott J: It's the quietest helmet I've ever owned! At 60 to 65 you should have no issues with your sena. I have one in my helmet and it works great. The only draw back is that the visor is not staged. It's only up or down Mar 16, 2015

Vijay Anand K: I'm 59 centimeters. Ordered a LG and it fit like a glove. Note that the cheek pads on the Sauer are kind of tight. They are cushion-y and they do press up against the cheeks. It is not a huge discomfort to me but I wanted to mention it since it is definitely noticeable on longer rides.

Very (very) well built helmet though.

Louis-Daniel B: best to order both and return the one you don't want to keep ;) Jul 1, 2014
