Shark Speed-R Sauer Helmet
2nd Speed R
I love my first Speed R so much wanted a spare! It seem every time I find a product I really like they stop making it. This helmet fits my intermediate oval melon perfectly with no pressure points. It has good airflow and the drop down visor is a must in Florida, especially on those light top motorways down here. The fit and finish on both helmets are spot on. I have had the first Speed R for about 2.5years and have had no problems with it. The liner has held up great and despite a lot of use has not developed any funky smells. My new Duke is a bright Hot orange, I love it!

After reviewing and trying on a lot of different brands I decided to try this shark. I like the innovations Shark is coming up with, only wish they had more to offer in the US, but I did find this helmet and was greatly impressed with the comfort and style and accessibility of all the product features.

Little pricey but worth it
Great fit right out of the box. Wearing glasses while wearing a helmet has never been this easy. Light weight. Shell size not bulky, so I don't look like a mushroom head. Overall, great helmet. It's on the more expensive side of things, but I believe it's worth it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
