Shark Speed-R Sauer Helmet
My Favorite Helmet to Data
Wow, this helmet has so much going for it, it is hard to think of where to start. Looks fantastic, the paint scheme and clear on the helmet are fantastic. The vents and control for the visor and sun shade are solid and feel great. The helmet has bluetooth in mind when they built it and my Sena SMH-10 fit perfectly and I could use the pre-placed velcro in the helmet to attach my speakers, that was a nice plus! One of the best selling points is the visor, it is the clearest visor I have ever seen. Crystal clear and almost impossible to notice, I literally reached to close it while it was down not knowing it was down. No detents on the visor seem weird at first but I like it now after some use. You can also adjust the tension on the visor, I tightened mine to add some feel to it. I have used Scorpion, HJC, and Shoei and while they are all great in their own way I now have a new found respect for Shark helmets. Very stable at speeds and feels really light on your head, and is narrow enough at the bottom to make it easy to turn your head. Something I like is that the helmet uses the padding to create the enclosed feel and doesn't narrow the bottom, I have trouble getting my head inside those helmets. Made for a more round head, main pressure points for me are the two cheek pads but still very comfortable. A tiny bit bigger then I thought but my last helmet was a scorpion 1000 which was heavy and fit very tightly. The only things that aren't excellent in my opinion is the air flow which is average (better than my last scorpion) and the features. The only issue with the features is the visor lock. While being unique and cool looking, it is hard to un-latch

Had trouble getting this helmet in my size. But i finally got it on close out sale. I bought the medium and it fits very well. it's a bit noisier than i expected though. Looks great, i bought the white, silver, and black one. The shades inside work great and drop down far enough so the line between shaded and not shades is not in your line of sight. The visor is super clear when clean. i wouldn't be able to tell i had it down if it wasn't for the wind.
Love the helmet. Thanks Revzilla.

Great looking helmet, lots of features, if a bit loud
Great looking helmet; I wear a medium in Shoei and the M in the Shark fit great. A bit tighter than the Shoei, but I imagine the pads will break in a bit over time.
Great field of view on this one, and the feature set is great. The visor is incredibly clear - like another review mentioned, it's hard to tell it's even down. The drop down shades don't have the same clarity as the clear visor, however, but they're still OK. The slider is well positioned. The eyeglass slots are effective, as is the venting and airflow. It's also a pretty light helmet, all things considered.
I was surprised to find this helmet louder than my Shoei Neotec (though I haven't installed the chin curtain yet). The plastics/switchgear isn't as high quality as on the Shoei, either, but the finish quality on the balance of the helmet and the liners are top notch. The graphics, fit and killer clear shield make this helmet.
It's a solid 4 star helmet; I've knocked off 1 star total for the additional noise, the sun visor not being as clear as the main shield (nor as clear as the Shoei's drop down, IMO), and the relatively cheap switchgear compared to the Shoei.

Try another helmet if you want quietness.
I bought this helmet because my flip face Shark EVO3 was totaled in an accident. Graphics was really catchy so based on my previous good experience I decided to try Shark full face. Fit and finish were fine. The airflow in the helmet even with removable chin guard installed makes my eyes water every time on speeds above 70MPH. Also mechanism that secures faceshield is loud at speeds over 70 as well. It creates noise right around your ears on both sides. I will not recommend this helmet.

Very good product! comfortable and very safe / Produto muito bom! confortavel e muito seguro.
Very good product! comfortable and very safe ..
I believe it is a bit wider than the simplest models of the Shark.
Extremely comfortable, the visor provides a very good quality of vision.
the internal sun visor is good, but I thought it might be a little darker.
I wear glasses, had never experienced a helmet that would provide much comfort, including other good brands in the market and other models of the Shark
The Revzilla perfeitamento delivered the product, recommend to Brazilians who make the purchase without fear.
Just missed some small gift of shark as a keychain, sticker or whatever the genre, but that's not the case.
Produto muito bom! confortavel e muito seguro..
Acredito que seja um pouco mais largo que os modelos mais simples da Shark.
Extremamente confortavél, a viseira proporciona uma qualidade de visão muito boa.
a viseira interna solar é boa, mas achei que poderia ser um pouco mais escura.
Eu uso óculos, nunca havia experimentado um capacete que proporcionasse tanto conforto, inclusive de outras marcas boas do mercado e outros modelos da Shark
O Revzilla entregou o produto perfeitamento, recomendo aos Brasileiros que façam a compra sem medo.
Senti falta apenas de algum pequeno presente da shark, tal como algum chaveiro, adesivo ou qualquer outra coisa do genero, mas isso não vem ao caso.

Excellent helmet with a better price.
I owned an Arai Corsair,and a AGV GP-tech and both are excellent helmets, no doubt about that. However they are also undoubtedly very expensive. In search of a less costly but high quality helmet, I found the Shark Speed-R. It is about 25-33% less in price and quality is very close to the high end models from Arai, Shoei or AGV. It has a very cool looking shape and I especially like the spoiler on top of the dual exhaust vents. Although the graphics designs of the Speed-Rs are not as aggressive as I would like them to be, the Speed-R models do have good colors combinations, so to find one to match your bike or jacket is not difficult. As far as the paint job goes, overall is good but I did notice a small rough / un-smoothed area around the sun visor switch, so not quite as perfect as those from GP-Tech or Corsair. The helmet is comfortable to wear, my only complaint is that it is not as light as the AGV GP-tech (close to that of the Corsair though), but then again I didn't pay quite as much to acquire the Speed-R as I paid for the GP-tech and this model is designed not quite as race oriented as the GP-Tech or Corsair, so the extra ounces is understandable and expected. The face shield is easy to take out or installed, no tools required but it cannot be locked into multiple levels between fully opened and fully closed like those from Shoei and AGV which have a ratchet system in the hinges. The incorporated sun visor and specifically designed temple pads that have groves to accommodate eyeglasses arms are well thought out features. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend this Shark model to anyone in search of a good helmet.

Very quiet and super comfortable :)
I came from a HJC CL-SP helmet size medium and I also bought a medium in the Shark Speed-R Sauer. I have to say the fit is just right. Its extremely comfortable, very lightweight, and minimal noise level. I love everything about this helmet especially the design :D . As Anthony says in the product description video, the visor is optically correct which is a great feature in the Shark helmets! Another amazing feature is the retractable sun visor !!! No more having to wear sunglasses on the inside or change out your clear visor to a smoke visor for daytime riding.
